This spray is made when the lavender is budding. I soak it in alcohol for 3 months then strain it and add Lavender essential oil. It started as a mosquito spray that we all would use while out in the garden, then I realized that people love it for so much more. most people use it as a bedding spray, some people use it on their animals to calm them. i use it in the car to calm me. and i love to spray it in my hair!!
