REALLL Lavender Lemonade

LavenderLemonade7

Anyone ever been to Native Foods and had their lavender lemonade?!

Honestly, it’s sooo good. I love their entire menu, but I love their lavender lemonade more. If it was acceptable to guzzle down 5 gallons of this stuff instead of eating, I totally would.

JK. Kindaaaa.

If you haven’t had it, you must drop everything and get there now. Plane, train or automobile, you must do what it takes.

Orrrr I guess you could save the $$$ and the headache and just make your own with this lovely little recipe. It’s not their recipe but it’s pretty darn close. And I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that it’s much much healthier!

Lavender Lemonade:

1/2 – 1 cup raw honey (start small and add more if needed)

 6 cups water

1-2 drop(s) lavender essential oil

 8 lemons, peeled and juiced (I used meyer lemons bc they are a little sweeter so you don’t have to use as much honey)

Lavender sprigs for garnish

Combine all ingredients into a glass pitcher and chill. To serve, pour over a few glasses of crushed ice and garnish with lavender sprigs.

<<<I also threw in some roses because I love roses/rose oil>>>

Sooooo it’s said that this magical recipe is supposed to cure headaches and anxiety. I get killer anxiety and swear by lavender oil {more here}. It calms the senses and while it’s one of the most powerful herbs, it is also the most gentle. I’ve been so busy/stressed lately that it’s really the only thing keeping me sane!

Lavender oil possesses amazing anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, analgesic, detoxifier, hypotensive, and sedative properties.

I actually just stocked up on quite a few essential oils and am SO excited to be able to start turning to them when needed! I am not one to take meds. I’d rather suffer through the sickness or the pain than take that crap. Now I don’t have to, all thanks to the best essential oils in the world. They are seriously life changing. I highly recommend looking into them!

I think I’ll add a little wild orange oil or some lime oil to my next batch. YUM!

P.S. totally added shot of tequila to this for dinner last night too…ohemgeeee good!
