How To Dry Mint and Lavender

The easiest way to dry mint and lavender is in a paper bag. Start by snipping a handful of stems from your fresh plants. Place the bundle in a brown paper bag and close the bag loosely. Wait 2-3 weeks to remove the bundle.

This part will be messy, do it over a tray to catch all the falling debris. Use your thumb and first finger to remove the dried mint leaves and lavender flowers. Crumble them into a jar. We recommend keeping the pieces large, so they don’t get through the holes in your tea strainer. Dispose of the stems and store your dried herbs in a jar placed in a cool and dark spot.
