On Saturday, Rodale’s General Store will host a free lavender event on Saturday for those who love lavender or hope to fall in love with this unique herb.
Florence Rodale, the owner of The Lavender Farmette, will be on hand from 1- 4 p.m. on Oct. 12 to answer lavender-related questions. Between 2 and 3 p.m., Florence will give a presentation including instructions on how to craft infused lavender oil from scratch.
She also will demonstrate how to make a luscious lavender lip balm, showing how easy, economical and fun making your own organic lavender lip balm can be.
Plus, a tasting of lavender cookies will be offered along with a free take-away lavender cookies recipe, courtesy of the The Lavender Farmette. Delicious organic lavender cookies will also be available for sale.
The Lavender Farmette is a micro-farm located in the Lehigh Valley. Florence uses a large portion of her artisan lavender crop as a component to her personal artwork. The remainder is crafted into a selection of products some of which are sold at Rodale’s General Store.
