My lavender garden may not be like the amazing fields of Provence, but it has definitely grown from the tiny plant I started with a few years ago. I have always been drawn to the beautiful color and aroma of this herb, and I fell in love with it even more when I found out just how calming it could be.
Up until this summer, I’ve only clipped a handful of lavender sprigs here and there to fill a small vase or two for the bathroom or my bedside table. However, as more blooms than ever began to emerge in the last month, I decided to experiment with some of the other ways to use this herb, and thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.
When I stumbled upon this lavender lemonade recipe on Eat Yourself Skinny, I knew it was something I had to try. It’s not only pretty to look at with the sliced lemon, but tastes refreshing and delicious too (even with a bit of vodka)!
