What is a lavender wand?
A lavender wand is a gorgeous, traditional handicraft originating in Provence. Known as ‘Fuseaux de Lavande’ in France, they are a fantastic way to capture and preserve the scent of lavender.
Lavender wands are traditionally placed in linen cupboards and drawers to repel moths and keep clothes sweet-smelling.
Made by weaving lavender stems and ribbon into a cage that holds the fragile flowers, lavender wands vary from simple in design like the one I am sharing with you today to large versions with the ribbon woven into intricate patterns.
