We discovered an awesome recipe for a healthful lavender lemonade that is sure to be a hit with our readers! The tutorial also gives some great tips on growing lavender and other ways to use it. The link follows after our introduction to the topic, as per usual.
Lavender is one of the world’s most popular herbs. It’s been in use since ancient times on account of its fragrance and therapeutic qualities. It’s also a wonderful plant for bees. Recently, many people have been (re)discovering culinary ways to use lavender. I tried some lavender ice cream recently and it was amazing!
One of my favorite uses of lavender? As a sleep aid. Here’s a simple experiment that you might try: At bedtime, inhale some of the aroma of pure lavender and see if it helps you fall asleep better. A few easy ways to do this 1) leave open a regular small bottle of lavender essential oil on the bedside table, close enough so that you can catch a scent that is noticeable but not overpowering Putting the essential oil bottle on a plate is ideal, so that if it does get knocked over, you will not get oil on the furniture! 2) use a diffuser or oil burner with a few drops of lavender. 3) Put some real lavender flowers under the pillow or somewhere near your head so that you can smell the fragrance. Many people have found that the aroma of lavender works its magic and helps with sleep and relaxation. It certainly works on me! Together with the hydrating properties of this thirst-quenching drink, give it a dry next time you are stressed or have a headache.
Lemons have always been a popular fruit but since the resurgence of interest in natural remedies, the number of uses for lemons has grown beyond all expectations. We’ve been gathering resources on lemons and now have quite the collection! Here are some of our pages on lemon-related topics:

The lavender lemonade recipe calls for a lot of honey and of course raw, local honey is advised. You can of course adjust the sweetness of your beverage by adjusting the amount of honey. Another thing that I would be interested to know is if someone can make the recipe without using boiling water to dissolve the honey. The reason for this is that honey is very temperature sensitive, and some of the nutritional elements are destroyed by heat. Anyone any thoughts on this?
Note – the color in the photo is influenced by the glassware and that the lemonade will not come out this color. However, you can influence the color of your drinks by adding berry juice – so why not experiment with blackberry, cherry or blackcurrant and see if you can create a similar effect? 🙂
