Pro Tip: Use Food Grade Essential Oil – For this recipe I used lavender essential oil, but fresh lavender flowers and dry lavender will work just the same. If using dry lavender make sure it is culinary lavender.  I’ll give you the run down in the recipe below.  If you do opt to use essential oil – please make sure that it is food grade.  Not all essential oils are created equally.

  1. I heard that digesting lavendar oil was toxic, especially for men.????? I will try this recipe using culinary dried lavendar. Sounds delish!

    1. Hi Jessica, I use pharmaceutical grade oils that are safe for ingesting – but I will definitely look into it! Let me know how it turns out with the dried lavender!

  2. Made the lavender tea………amazing!
    My only question: how do you add food coloring to yellow lemonade without it turning an ugly gray color? Tried it with Just a glass and it looked awful.
