Ingredients

4 cups water
2 tablespoons dry lavender
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 large lemons – juiced
1 cup ice (optional)

Directions

  1. Place the water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the lavender, and reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the honey. (It is as though you are making tea.)
