Welcome back to EKKO Diaries!
When gathering feedback as to what you wanted to hear about, recipes was one of the top answers. So, I figured I would share one of my favorite summer drink recipes and how it was part of the inspiration for an EKKO scent!
I created the Lemon Lavender candle with a very specific purpose in mind. I wanted to created a scent equally as fresh as it was soothing. And so Lemon Lavender came to be! I often compare this scent to homemade lavender lemonade, which is a staple in my home in the warmer months. The recipe is easy and the outcome is delicious. So in case you were looking for a new summer drink, look no further.
- Small amount of freshly picked and rinsed lavender flowers or a tablespoon of dried lavender flowers (do not use florist flowers or any lavender sprayed with pesticides!)
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- 2 cups of boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 cups of cold water
- In a medium bowl, mix together lavender flowers and sugar.
- Add two cups of boiling water into the bowl and stir until the sugar has melted. Cover and sit aside for 1 hour.
- Strain the lavender mixture into a pitcher. Add in lemon juice and cold water.
- Add in more sugar or lemon juice depending on your flavor preference.
And there you have it! Simple, refreshing, and so delicious.
