Love the smell of lavender? Why not take it home with you. The Ozarks are home to a handful of lavender fields perfect for picking your own home-grown lavender. Besides smelling beautiful, lavender can be used in different ways such as making potpourri, candles, soaps, perfumes, scent bags, essential oils and lotions. You can add a bit of dried lavender on top of your yogurt or salads or place it in a vase.
