Lavender grows in temperate, arid climates and serves as a wonderful plant ally with its calming aroma and distinct flavor. Lavender grows easily in the Texas Hill Country. Its leaves can be used as an ingredient for savory and sweet dishes, as an herbal companion in tea, as incense when burned or as an ingredient in skincare. The flowers can be used similarly. If you grow lavender, you know the joy of just brushing up against the plant and inhaling its calming aroma.
