Ingredients

  • ½ cup fresh lavender flowers or 2 tablespoons of dried flowers pesticide-free and organic, if possible
  • 3 cups of distilled or filtered water
  • 1 ½ cups of raw sugar or approximately one cup of raw honey

Instructions

  • Combine water and sugar (or honey) in a small pan. Turn heat on low until the sugar has melted and a smooth consistency develops. Gradually increase the heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes until the mixture becomes syrupy.
  • Remove from the stove and blend in the lavender flowers. Cover immediately. Fold in the flowers as gently as possible.
  • Allow to cool at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
