4 tbsps (1/4 cup) culinary lavender*
2 cups boiling water
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
2 cups cold water
* Culinary lavender is lavender harvested for the purposes of cooking/eating. Please don’t buy the perfumed air-freshening kind because that is going to be utterly gross. Steep the lavender in 2 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the lavender. Place the lavender tea and the sugar in a small saucepan and set over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves (you don’t have to put it over heat, but I do this because I’m impatient and want the sugar to dissolve faster and completely). Remove from heat and let cool to warm. Stir in the lemon juice. Stir in the cold water. Add more to taste. I prefer to keep mine on the concentrated side because I like to mix it with seltzer water when I serve it. Serve over ice. Makes about 6-8 cups depending on how dilute you want it.
My friend actually made lavender lemonade before and it’s delicious. Not sure if this is the same recipe, but stillllll

Hey all of you Candida sufferers check out this link. I have been doing extensive research over the last few years on what the core reason is for developing and overgrowth of Candida and I learned that the main cause is a sick digestive system. It not caused from certain foods but how your body processes those foods in your digestive tract. Here is an excerpt from the link above you might find intriguing.
"Our digestive tract is where the foods we eat are broken down into useable nutrients by our bodies — if there is a disturbance, problem or deficiency there, we don’t get all the vitamins, minerals and amino acids from our food and we begin to develop nutrient deficiencies which lead to a variety of common health problems… in fact many doctors believe all health problems stem from some type of imbalance in the digestive system."–
