I have to agree with a previous reviewer; this stuff is not culinary grade. It smells really nice and will be great for sachets and whatnot, but I would not dare use it in food. I sifted a few spoonfuls of it and it looked like I had thrown a bunch of dust and grass clippings in the bowl.
I would now rate this item a 1 star instead of 4 star. I thought the smell was strong and pleasant, but after being set out for only a day I cannot smell it unless I basically put my nose in whatever container it is in. It is not because I have become accustomed to it. I have it all over the house, but you would not know it. There is a bowl of it in a tiny linen closet and you would expect to smell lavender when you open the door, but it only smells like linens. There is a bowl of lavender in the cabinet under the sink in a bathroom; there is no lavender scent at all, not in the bathroom nor in the cabinet. In such confined spaces there should be some scent. When you open the product bag the scent of lavender is overwhelming, but once it is out it quickly dissipates.
