Did you guys know that I was this close to naming my blog the Lavender Mermaid?! That’s because I’ve always felt a special connection to lavender. In fact, one of my dreams is to open a lavender farm one day.
I just love its calming, soothing scent and look. I can never get enough lavender sprays, sachets and soaps – they’re just so fragrant and beautiful.
There’s no doubt that lavender makes for some amazing beauty and cleaning products, but did you know that there are also tons of yummy dishes and drinks you can cook up using the lovely flower?
I love the idea of using unexpected ingredients in things like cookies, cocktails and salads. Every time I look at a menu, the dishes that involve something new and different like a flower or a spice that’s often overlooked are the ones that tend to stick out to me the most. A recipe with a unique edge is often irresistible (unless it’s something like kangaroo meat – things like that usually have the opposite effect on me!).
Experimenting with new ingredients is a super fun way to spend the day. Take a look at some of the scrumptious lavender recipes below for some inspiration!
