Hi Everyone, I was trying to think of some ways to use up some lavender I have. So I decided to make a lavender topairy and added peppermint to the base. It turned out pretty good and it smells wonderful! It was pretty easy to make also Sorry the picture is so big  Smiley

I really love this..!  How did you get the lavender to hold together that way?

That really does look nice and I'm sure it smells lovely, too!

I'm up for personal swaps. PM me for availability and ideas!

Thank you! I used tacky glue I mixed about 3 parts glue with one part water then rolled the ball in the lavender after filling in a few bare spots I pressed on it with my hands to really pack the lavender together and get it to stay in place.

That is beautiful. On vacation one year I got a candle called "heart-break helper," which was lavendar and pepperment. It was the best scent combination ever - so soothing!
