Okay, so I just bought a herb arrangement from the local high school horticulture sale. I don't want to wait for blossoms, so I used some stems. Delicious! Lavender latte like the fancy coffee shops! Used about 10" of snips from the plant in place of blossoms. Read More

I found it to be extremely weak, I normally boil my simple syrup down to be somewhat on the thicker side, maybe not enough lavender buds, I don't know? Read More

Really easy gift to make or to keep a bottle of it at home. I used it to make a vodka lemonade lavender martini, lavender prosecco, lavender whipped cream, lavender iced tea, and only waffles and pancakes. Fantastic!! Read More

Found this to be a tad on the weak side. I will definitely make it again with more lavender and longer steep time. I don't like super sweet drinks so maybe that's why I find it a bit too weak for my uses. Read More

This simple syrup is amazing!! I added at least double the amount of lavender because I was looking for strong lavender flavor. We put it in our coffee and make lavender lattes and mochas. A-mazing!! Read More
