How to make lavender lemonade
There are two very easy ways to make this natural lemonade: the first is to use essential oil, the second uses the plant.
Both recipes are great and have the same properties, it just depends on how easily you can find the ingredients.

- 10 c. water (2.5 liters)
- 1 drop lavender essential oil
- 6 lemons
- Lavender branches for decoration

- Add the honey, stir well, then add the lavender oil.
