Making Homemade Lavender Lemonade with Full Herbal Goodness

It's summer time here in Oregon and the temperature is on the rise. It is a great time to enjoy some fresh homemade lemonade, or to take time out and enjoy your favorite store bought brand. While lemonade is a fantastic beverage by itself, it can be an even more memorable experience when it is infused with natural supportive flavors and herbs such as mint, strawberry, or lavender.

Making Lavender Infused Lemonade   What you might not know is that lavender packs a pretty long list of properties that may be helpful to our bodies. Of course, those sugary lavender syrups are often chosen when making lemonade - but a quick bit of education helps us realize that switching from a syrup to a natural organic lavender tincture can create a drink that offers additional benefits other than refreshment and great taste.

 The natural medicinal power of lavender is quite impressive.

Lavender is indicated for use to support the nervous system including tension relief and mild-anxiety, mild-depression, and to de-stress. It is used to support gastric upsets, as an aphrodisiac, and to flavor culinary creations. Lavender also contains high amounts of volatile oils that further support the body.

DIY Herbal Infused Lavender Lemonade (with Organic Lavender Tincture)

To create your own homemade lavender lemonade, mix the following ingredients together:

  • 1 cup raw honey (or 3–4 cups sugar)
  • 12 cups pure water
  • 6 tincture dropperfuls of
            Ra Herbal Organic Lavender Tincture available here
  • The juice of six lemons
  • Lavender sprigs for garnish

To create lavender lemonade using store bought lemonade, just add some tincture:

Add 1-2 dropperfuls of Ra Herbal Organic Lavender Tincture to a full glass of lemonade and stir well.

 

And don’t forget about mint! Our next blog will have another recipe for herbal infused mint lemonade. Stay tuned for that, and for now check out our other great blog posts all about Southern Oregon herbs.
