Need a little pick me up to brighten up your day? I'm always discovering new ways to be creative when it comes to drinking water. Many of my clients share that if they could just get past the taste of plain water they would drink more of it. This recipe is relatively simple and includes two of my favorite healing agents, lemons and lavender. You can enjoy this refreshing and healing drink with a twist anytime of the day.

Pour 3 cups of the water into a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Add honey and dried lavender or Lavender Essential Oil, let steep for no more than 20 minutes.
