    Hello
    I'm hoping to make lavender filled hearts. I am very new to all this and not sure where to source dried lavender from. Can anyone help? Many thanks. Sam x

    Hi Hapus

    What sort of quantity do you want?
    Ebay is a good place for less than 1kg.

    Hi
    Been looking into this and would like one that smells sweet. Colour does not matter as will not see inside hearts. Need about a kilo (to make 50 hearts!)
    Thanks

    The Soapmakers Store has them starting at 1.18 for 100g up to 9.84 kg.

    (you can always boost with a drop or two of Lavender essential oil or fragrance oil)

    Default lavender

    Hi

    the best fragrance comes from French Lavender (at Grasse) but it is more expensive at about 20 kg - you'll need to search online for suppliers.

    However to start with the cheaper lavender would do or you could mix the expensive stuff with wheat to make it go further.

    Just a matter of experimenting really to see what you prefer

    Cheers

    Sharon

    I completely agree with Sharon, French Lavender is the best one for filling things as it is strong.

    I use the following company http://www.lavendersupplies.co.uk who are very good. I have also used someone on ebay but I cant for the life of me remeber their name, it was a while ago!.
