Apple Crumble Pie
The essential oils from lavender have a calming effect and can promote a restful sleep. In addition, the lavender apple cake gets an unmistakable aroma from the medicinal herb.
When using lavender from your own garden, you should make sure that it is real lavender. The dried flowers can then easily be used in lavender apple pie with sprinkles.
