If you want to experience the miraculous benefits from lavender, we suggest you to make yourself a lavender lemonade.
The tasty lemonade can help you treat many conditions including:

Here’s what you need to make the lavender lemonade:
- 12 cups pure water
- 1 cup raw honey
- 1 drop lavender essential oil
- 6 lemons
Juice the lemons. Mix all the ingredients together. Drink this miraculous drink every day.
Carefully cut the lavender flowers off the stems. Put the flowers in a medium-sized bowl.
Add the sugar into the bowl. Make sure it lands on the flowers.
Rub the lavender into the sugar with your hands.
Boil 2 cups (470 ml) of water and pour it into the sugar mixture. Mix it with a spoon until the sugar has dissolved.
Infuse the lavender flavor. Use something to cover the bowl and allow it to sit for at least half an hour, though you can wait up to several hours.
Use a sifter to strain the flowers from the liquid. Put the liquid into a jug or pitcher.
Pour in the lemon juice and 2 cups (470 ml) of cold water, and stir. At this point, you should taste a bit of it to check the flavor. Depending on the taste of the lemonade, you may need to alter it to your tastes.
Serve. Pour into tall glasses, add ice (if desired), and garnish the glasses with a lemon slice. Enjoy!
