Lavender Lemonade

Lavender – it never disappoints with its stunning purple-blue spikes and enchanting aroma. This magical flower is not only an aromatic beauty but also a medicinal herb. There are more than 40 species in the Lavandula genus. Lavandula angustifolia is the most well-known and is widely used within the herbal medicine community.

Not only is Lavender a must for your herbal medicine chest it's a wonderful addition to your culinary dishes and beverages. 

So, beat the heat, let your stresses melt away and relax with a tall glass of Lavender Lemonade! 


  • 1/4 cup organic dried lavender flowers
  • cups water
  • 2 to 3 cups ice cubes
  • 1 ¼ to 1 ½ cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice 
  • 6 cups cold water
  • Raw local honey and/or organic stevia


  1. Place lavender flowers in a tea filter bag or culinary / muslin bag and place into a bowl. Boil 2 cups water and pour over bagged flowers and allow to steep 15 to 20 minutes
  2. Squeeze and remove bagged flowers, set steeped lavender water aside
  3. Add ice and lavender water to a serving pitcher
  4. Add the lemon juice and 6 cups of cold water
  5. Add honey and/or organic stevia to add some sweetness
  6. Garnish with a lemon slice and a sprig of lavender
  7. Stir and enjoy

Tip: I add approximately 1/4 to 1/2 cups of raw local honey to the warm steeped lavender water after I remove the culinary bag and stir well. A dash of organic stevia is a wonderful addition unless you prefer your Lavender Lemonade with a bit more tartness.
