As summer draws to a close, kids go back to school and our schedules start to fill up. In the midst of this, there's something we all need.
Stillness.
Each day, try to sit quietly for a few moments. This will calm and nourish you, so you can continue through the rest of your busy day, revitalized. It's like a mini cleanse whenever you want. Especially if you do it with a glass of this lavender lemonade. Delicious and refreshing. Perfect for being still since it's a natural calming agent.

Lavender has been used for centuries to treat headaches, relieve stress and calm the nerves. Add a few sprigs to this delicious lemonade and feel instantly relaxed. Also, the antioxidants in lavender have been known to help get rid of bad bacteria in the gut, so it's the perfect compliment to a cleanse which increases the good bacteria!

Serves 1

Ingredients:
12-16 ounces fresh water
juice of 1 lemon
stevia to taste (powder or liquid, add slowly and taste as you go, as stevia is super sweet!)
2-4 lavender sprigs (if you want to get fancy, you can freeze them into ice cubes ahead of time as it's a great thing to have on hand!)


Directions:
In a large glass, stir the water and lemon juice together, then add the stevia to taste.
Let it steep for a few minutes before drinking to let the lavender incorporate.
If you have frozen lavender ice cubes, you can add a few of those and enjoy!
