This lavender wand is 15 stems of Grosso Lavender woven with satin ribbon. The larger end envelopes the flower spikes. The length can vary between wands depending on the original stem length, usually from 14" to 16". As the scent of lavender diminishes, gently squeeze the large end to bruise the flowers - this will release more of the lavender buds' natural oil. The fragrance will last for years!
