It is popular to use in nebulizers, sprays, salts, and scrubs to calm the body and promote sleep. Creative cooks are using it increasingly in cooking as well. Tea is a simple start to that end.

Lavender tea is surprisingly pleasant. For my tea, you can use fresh or dried lavender flowers, something we actually keep in our pantry that we have dried from our own property. We used lemon balm as our tea base but try it in your favorite teas — mint or chamomile would work nicely.

Lavender Tea Ingredients

  • 3 cups of hot water

  • One handful of fresh lemon balm. (Substitute mints or a couple of tea bags.)
  • Two tablespoons fresh or dried lavender flowers.
  • Honey to sweeten. (Optional.)
