- 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
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.
Strain the mixture into a small bottle. The mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 6 months.
This will produce about 1 ½ pints.
