Though lavender sometimes blooms in late spring, many lavender farms prune flippantly to encourage a second flowering in late summer time, making this an ideal time to make use of the contemporary flowers in a cooling drink. Should you can, take a summertime frolic to a close-by lavender area and whip up this recipe while you get dwelling.
If that is not an choice, verify your native apothecary for dried, natural lavender flowers, or buy them on-line (I share a vetted checklist of on-line retailers right here.) Each contemporary and dried lavender make great tea, so irrespective of which choice works greatest for you, your lavender lemonade might be infused with the perfume and calming advantages of this plant.
In fact, you may as well develop your personal lavender as a potted herb or within the backyard. Use any number of fragrant lavender with a scent you want. Simply keep away from ornamental varieties, which have been bred for bigger flowers and are not as richly aromatic. My favourite selection is English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia.
