    Something does not seem right about this recipe. It also doesn’t mention the crushed lavender in the instructions. I’d appreciate info on where I could buy the most fragrant lavender.

      Hi Susan! I tried this and added the crushed lavender from my garden after the oils hardened…turned out really nicely…I use young living lavender oils because they are sooooo fragrant and super concentrated…
