Culinary lavender is the sweet dried lavender flower that has been grown to organic principles especially for cooking with. We have grown it, harvested it by hand, dried it in the Australian summer heat, sieved it six times and then packaged it into glass jars ready for you to impress your family and friends.
Cooking with lavender is just as easy as cooking with any other herb. Add the flavour of lavender to your recipes by using the edible dried flowers.
Add to: scones, bread, biscuits, casseroles, chutney, relish, ice cream, cordial and more.
Experiment with our cooking lavender in your favourite recipes. Remember that a little goes a long way, so do put the recommended amount in the first time.
Our Culinary Lavender is the variety that is best for cooking as not all lavender plants are suitable.

A: Stored in a darkened pantry or cupboard in the glass jar with lid on tight, it will last for years. Over time the colour may fade but the flowers will be fine.
Q: What recipes can you use lavender in?
A: Use it like any other herb in your pantry. Just remember that less is best to start with. Start with a small amount and increase to taste. Culinary lavender can be used in both sweet or savoury recipes.
- Using fresh lavender? You may need to use slightly more
- Use the correct lavender for cooking or your creations will have a bitter taste
- Always start with a small amount and increase if needed
- Have your own lavender flowers? To test if the lavender is OK to cook with – squeeze the flowers and if it smells like mothballs DON’T use it. It should have a pleasant or sweet smell
