Baking With Lavender Sugar

Lavender sugar can be used in many ways. My favorite use is in baking. It can be used to sweeten muffin or scone batter. Its beautiful sprinkled over rustic looking cookies. 

A common problem with lavender flavored sweets is that if overused, it can come off tasting a little soapy or perfume-like. But I'm sure you've eaten lavender sugar and actually really enjoyed. Lavender has a distinct floral flavor, with subtle hints of rosemary and mint. It's a wonderful flavor when used with restraint. 

Here are some tips when baking with lavender. 

  • Use restraint. A little goes a long way. You want the flavor of your baked goods to be enhanced, not over powered. 
  • Lavender and dairy are best friends. They marry well together. So start thinking icecreams, custards, shortbreads, anything with lots of butter. 
  • Balance its notes with something bright like a light citrus juice or zest. 

Our culinary lavender sugar has the perfect blend of sugar to lavender ratio so you will never go wrong. Let us know what lavender adventures you have in your kitchen this week!

Why I Use Essential Oils

Before I used essential oils, I really didn't know much about them. I thought they were for hippies who didn't believe in medicine. But essential oils have so many amazing uses. Once you try some, you will be hooked for life. 

They are a great sleep aid, especially lavender essential oil. For my babies, just put one drop of lavender essential oils on their feet before bed and the scent soothes them right to sleep. This also works with grown ups!

Lavender oil also works great on bug bites and bee stings. Just one drop can reduce swelling and stop itching. Living on a farm, this has been a life saver!

I've also noticed when I am wearing lavender essential oils, its a natural bug deterrent. The mosquitoes stay far away from me, even when I'm at the lake! 

Lavender oil also works great on minor burns to help sooth the pain. It can even help stop the bleeding with minor cuts as well. Working on a farm, these uses come in handy all of the time! 

A drop of lavender oil behind your ears can help fade nausea or motion sickness. We have pregnant moms who visit us at the farmers markets all the time telling us our lavender essential oil is their life saver. 

It helps with dry or chapped skin, cold sores, dandruff, hay fever. I could go on and on about all the amazing uses, but I really recommend you try it for yourself. You'll be amazed at what you've been missing.
