Prepare your senses and feast your eyes and nostrils on this amazing Lavender infused lemonade. This lemonade not only looks and smells delicious, it's also great for your health.
When you think of lavender, you're probably picturing an car air freshener or a Febreeze scent. Even the word lavender doesn't sound very appetizing, it sounds more like the name of a soap company. But according to Complete Health And Happiness, lavender can be used for more than just make things smell good, it also boasts several health benefits.
Lavender can calm the senses and helps reduce stress and anxiety (more effective than a massage or rest). It also helps fight inflammation, head-aches, hangovers, sinus congestion, insomnia, and it serves as an antiseptic, an antibacterial, a detoxifier and a sedative. This makes lavender the most powerful and versatile essential oil you can find.
Here's what you'll need to make your very own Lavender infused lemonade:
- 1 cup of honey
- 12 cups of water
- 1 drop lavender essential oil
- 6 lemons
- Lavender sprigs for garnish
Mix them all together (adjusting the amount of honey according to your own sweetness preference), chill and enjoy.
