Keyword: lavender tonic


  • 2 c distilled water
  • 3/4 c dried lavender flowers or 1 cup fresh flowers
  • 1/4 c witch hazel or vodka
  • 70 drops lavender essential oil


  • First, make a lavender tea by boiling the water and pouring it over the lavender flowers. Allow lavender to brew -- you’ll want it to steep for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Next, make the tonic -- put witch hazel or vodka into your jar or bottle and add the essential oil. Then, when the lavender tea is cool, strain it into the bottle.
  • Combine a lavender tea with lavender-infused witch hazel or vodka. Place the cap on and shake well to blend the ingredients.
  • Allow to cool completely before use. If you are using this on your face or body, it is especially nice chilled. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to six months.
  • Remember to shake well before each use, and enjoy!
