DIY Oilternative – Lavender Lemonade
Summer is on in North Carolina! It’s 94 degrees and I’m sitting on the back porch sipping Lavender Lemonade and surfing. Yes, I did make it myself and you can too. There are bunch of recipes for Lavender Lemonade on the Internet but most call for too much work (aka squeezing lemons). My version is a lot easier because I hate to measure – just dash, splash and sprinkle.
Lavender Lemonade with Young Living Essential Oils
2 quarts of carbonated water (Soda Stream or Club Soda)
2 drops Young Living Lavender Vitality (because it’s nearly impossible to get just 1 drop!)
2 drops Young Living Lemon Vitality
3/4 cups ReaLemon Lemon Juice (easier than squeezing)
Stevia Sweet Drops to taste (I just dash a few drops in)
You need to taste this lemonade and adjust based on your liking. I find the tartness refreshing but my kids prefer a sweeter version. Note that there are zero calories so its guilt free.
Want to jazz it up a bit? (not for the kiddos)
- Add a dash of rum!
