Lavendar has a sweet, floral aroma with a hint of mint and citrus. It is very potent and must be used sparingly. It is believed to be a relaxing herb and is often brewed into tea. Lavendar is wonderful in sweet dishes; stir into white cake mix, cookie batter or sprinkle over frosted sugar cookies. It can also be rubbed directly on meats, or added to vegetables and casseroles.
