How to Make Lavender Tea: Bring 10–12 fluid ounces of water to a boil and simmer 1/2-1 tsp of Lavender for 5-7 minutes.

Characteristics: vegan, sugar free, zero calories, all natural, gluten free, pesticides free, no chemicals, Non-GMO

Other Tips: 

While simmering, keep the tea covered. This will prevent the beneficial essential oils from escaping with the steam.

A longer simmer will produce a stronger cup of tea without any hint of bitterness.

If you are making a cold brew, make a whole pitcher and not just a cup. Make sure the buds are well soaked -you may put a lid and shake- and keep your pitcher covered in the refrigerator. Your cold brew tea will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

Make Herbal Tea Ice Cubes! Just pour your cold brew tea into ice cube trays, and freeze completely. Pair with filtered water, club sodas, fruit smoothies, mocktails, and cocktails.

Greek Lavender & Health Benefits

Greek wild lavender, also known as Lavandula stoechas, offers various health benefits supported by scientific research. Studies have shown that lavender possesses anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and neuroprotective properties. The essential oils extracted from Lavandula stoechas have been found to exhibit significant antioxidant activity due to their high content of phenolic compounds, particularly rosmarinic acid and flavonoids. These antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, potentially reducing oxidative stress and lowering the risk of chronic diseases. Additionally, research suggests that Lavandula stoechas extracts possess antimicrobial activity against various bacteria and fungi, indicating potential applications in combating infections. Furthermore, lavender has been traditionally used for its calming and soothing effects on the nervous system, with studies indicating its potential in reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality.
