Very soon the snow is going to be gone and we’ll actually see the green of the grass again.  In the meantime, I plan on convincing myself that Spring is actually here already by enjoying gorgeous foods and beverages.  Our Lavender Lemonade is definitely the ultimate relaxing beverage.  We took our Best EVER Lemonade Recipe and gave it a twist and turned it into Lavender Lemonade that tastes and smells amazing!

Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade

Last Spring I quickly learned the importance of a lemon juicer.  I was literally squeezing the lemons by hand and missing out on at least half of the juice.  A lot of work for a little pay off does not sit well for me.  I would absolutely love one of these gorgeous juicers, but for now mine does the trick.  It keeps out all of the seeds and I’m able to grab the pulp to add to my juice.  You’ll find that the pulp definitely adds to the flavors of this lemonade so no matter what you use, you want to do your best to be able to add the pulp. Check out the video for our Best EVER Lemonade Recipe to use as your base and be sure to get the full recipe here.

I’ve had ton of emails about the pitcher  and glasses that are pictured here.  This is the pitcher and the glasses that come with it.  It’s one of my favorites and it’s such a great deal!

Lavender Lemonade with Young Living Lavender

Since we live in NY, lavender is not something that is readily available to be picked or bought.  Luckily, my Young Living Essential Oils comes with Lavender oil in the starter kit along with 10 other amazing oils.  I’m loving my oils and one of my favorite ways to use them is in different recipes.  We actually just kicked off our Essential Oil a Month Recipe Series at the end of last week.  We started off with tons of recipes using lemon essential oil.  Next month is lime and I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Right now you can actually take advantage of a fabulous promotion that we are running on the starter kit.  Be sure to scroll down to read more about it!  For this Lavender Lemonade you’re going to use our Lemonade Recipe {click HERE for the RECIPE} and 2-3 drops of lavender essential oil.  That’s it!  So simple, yet absolutely amazing!  I want a slight purple tint to it so I added a drop of Neon Purple Food Coloring.  This of course optional and if you don’t add it, you’ll have more of a yellow color.

Lavender Lemonade with Essential Oils

Not all essential oils are edible. Due to lack of purity, 98% of essential oils sold should NOT be ingested. An edible essential oil will be labeled “therapeutic-grade” and have a “Supplement Facts” box on the label showing the nutritional value – do NOT use just any brand of essential oil for cooking/flavoring foods. Be sure to use pure oils from reliable sources, not synthetic scents or flavorings.

Essential Oils Freebie

We are completely in love with essential oils and are over the moon excited to be able to offer you an AMAZING deal that will get you started!

    This literally looks beautiful – light violet and crystal together – so gorgeous. I had no clue essential oils could be used in cooking but that’s awesome! I keep reading so much about EO however I live in Italy and am having a hard time finding any!

  • Cheyenne


    It is beautiful! What makes it so purple, the essential oils?

  • Crystal


    I love your glasses!! What is the name/style of them or where did you get them?

  • Sarah Nenni Daher


    Jenny, this is perfect! I can’t wait to make a batch to chase away our gray Spring days.

    At our wedding, we had lavender pear as one of the layers of our bride’s cake, and I have always wanted a recipe for it. You’re so good in the kitchen – have you ever made it?

  • Alex


    This looks so amazing! I love using essential oils, but I have yet to find a brand near me that is safe to invest, so I haven’t really experimented with using them in recipes!

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody that really knows what they
    are discussing on the web. You actually know how
    to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more
    people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
