Now that you’ve all ordered your Premium Starter Kit, you can make mimosas to celebrate! Just in case you haven’t gotten your oils yet, you can order them HERE and you can read all about why I recommend Young Living oils HERE.

I chose Lemon and Lavender, first of all because the flavor combo is AHMAZING! But also other reasons. I do my research. Come on.

Lemon Essential Oil is invigorating, great for digestion, and lifting mood.

Lavender Essential Oil is soothing, also great for lifting your mood and has historically been known as an aphrodisiac. Now where’s the *wiggle your eyebrows* button when you need one?

See what I mean though? Combo extraordinaire!  And then delicious. There’s that too.

I know alcohol is not paleo. This recipe is for a Lemon Lavender EO Simple Syrup. EO is short for Essential Oils. What you do with it after that is totally up to you. … I still recommend making mimosas. Because. Mimosas.

If you don’t want to make mimosas you can use the simple syrup to can various fruits. Any fruit that you can in a simple syrup, you can use this paleoized version and give it a whole new flavor profile with the lemon and lavender. While you’re at it… imagine all the possibilities! Mix this up, let any fruit soak in it over-night. Blueberries? Yum. Peaches? Delish. Pears? Yes. Plums? Of course. 

What are you waiting for?!

Right… the recipe.

Paleo Lemon Lavender Simple Syrup

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 drops Young Living Lemon Oil
  • 2 drops Young Living Lavender Oil
  • Champagne or Sparkling Wine (If you’re making mimosas!)

Instructions:

Pour your 1/2 cup raw honey into a bowl. Add your 3 drops lemon essential oil and 2 drops lavender essential oil into the honey and stir well!

Heat up your 1 cup water on the stove until hot but not boiling. You want it just warm enough to melt the honey but not hot enough to “kill” the benefits of the essential oils. Don’t worry, if that does happen, you won’t lose the FLAVOR! Mix the honey and essential oil mix into the water until melted. Let cool.

Now, if you’re making mimosas…..

Add 2-4 tbsp of your cooled Lemon Lavender Simple Syrup into a champagne flute then top with Sparkling Wine of choice! And ENJOY!

If you are making a simple syrup for fruit, do this instead:

Use 3 cups water, 1 cup honey and 3-4 drops lemon and 2-3 drops lavender and follow the above steps to make your simple syrup. Remember – less is more with Young Living essential oils. These babies are potent and strong. Just because your recipe is larger, does not mean you need a lot more essential oils.

Let me know if you try it!
