Gaah! It's hot in Arizona already! This is a recipe you may have seen floating around, popular in hot weather. We use this at our essential oil 101 classes and make and takes. And sometimes... 'just cuz'. Here are a few tips for great lavender lemonade!
You can sweeten it with whatever you like. An option for sweetening that came highly recommended by my father-in-law (well-deserved in my opinion, it's my method now too!) is to make your own organic simple sugar syrup.
Simple syrup is the secret to sweetening a beverage without having to stir it FOREVER, waiting for those sugar crystals to dissolve. LOL. (This is an indispensable staple ingredient of cocktail making--take note!) Just boil water on the stove or in an electric kettle and mix with organic cane sugar at a 1:1 ratio in a heat safe pour-friendly container, such as a Pyrex measuring cup.
Stir til sugar dissolves, maybe for 30 seconds. You can use it right away, but will want to compensate for the heat with ice. Store any leftovers in the fridge and keep in mind that it thickens as it cools.
Hmmm... Yknow what would be cute in the jug? Gigantic ice cubes with some frozen lavender suspended in there. I'll see if I can buy more lavender flowers this year from Young Living at Convention. That was one of my highlights in 2015. LOL!
Here's another one:
I met the youngest Young! I gotta tell you this is a really special kid. (Lol, I bet you already knew that!) This is a unique and dynamic FAMILY and I think it's great that they are so hands-on and involved. I'm excited to bring my husband and my own children to convention this year. And I hope to see the farm!
Every batch of lavender lemonade is unique and delicious. I will say it is easy to unintentionally over-lavender your lemonade, so be ready to let only one drop come out. One is enough. You can also add Young Living lemon or lime essential oil for additional health benefits. :-)
Lavender oil has a chemically complex structure with over 150 active constituents for supporting great health. Research indicates that lavender oil aromatherapy benefits include reducing anxiety and lowering pulse rates during stressful situations. Pure, therapeutic grade lavender essential oil used as aromatherapy has been demonstrated to be more relaxing than merely resting or massage alone. We've nicknamed lavender the Swiss Army Knife of essential oils, because it is SO versatile. I find ingesting it helps me with seasonal irritations!
Lavender is a wonderful aromatic herb that calms the senses. Here are a few reasons I chose to use Young Living.
