Lavender Water

This is an ingredient in the above recipe for cleanser, but can also be used as an after bath splash.
  • 2 cups lavender flowers
  • 2 pints distilled water, brought to a boil
  • 2 tbsp vodka

Pour the lavender flowers into a heatproof container. Pour the boiling water over them and stir well. Cover and allow to infuse for 48 hours, stirring occasionally.

Strain the liquid through a nonmetallic strainer, pressing the flowers to extract the maximum fragrance. Stir in the vodka, pour into bottles, cover and label.

  • Yields: 2 pints
