Lavender Chamomile Iced Tea

This Lavender Chamomile Tea is sure to quench your thirst.

This Lavender Chamomile Iced Tea is sure to quench your thirst without caffeine. What I love the most about this tea is how completely realaxing it is to enjoy after an afternoon out in the garden. This tea helps reduce stress by settling your nervous system and calming your digestive system. Lavender promotes relaxation and chamomile eases tension and supports digestion. Steeped in flavor, this recipe is not too sweet and not too bitter.

National Iced Tea Day Celebration

Here in the south, historically we like our tea sweet. The truth is sweet tea is a drink that is served year-round and it’s incredibly sweet. We offer these recipes with a nod to our southern roots, but in moderation in the interest of your good health!

Lavender Tonic Tea for Face, Body and Home

Lavender oil is a relaxing elixir. Dried lavender flowers can be used in a variety of ways. One of my favorites to-dos is a lavender body oil perfect for soothing sore muscles and irritated skin and provides a scent that will relax both mind and body.

This classic lavender tonic has a clean, fresh fragrance of lavender buds. It’s gentle astringent, antiseptic, calming and healing qualities bring relief to skin irritations and sunburn. It’s good for all skin types. You can use this spray as a facial or body toner or as an aromatic spray on your pillows, sheets, and blankets. 

Spinning Lemon into a Tea

Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade with honey and ginger is a thirst quenching mocktail for you and your family. When the weather starts to get warm this is a great homemade soda. If you’re having a spring or summer garden party, this is an excellent signature drink to offer guests. Spring Honey is the perfect sweetener for this drink!

The Bees Knees Honeybush Tea

We offer a small specially curated line of teas that we believe pair well with honey and can easily be served hot or cold. One of our favorite things to do is ice one of our teas and add cashew and coconut milk.
