1 large cucumber
4 cups ice cubes
1 gallon cold water (tap, filtered, sparkling/mineral, or spring water), your choice*
Few sprigs of mint
1 teaspoon culinary lavender**
* Do not use hot water! Hot water destroys the enzymes and vitamins in fruits and vegetables. Hot water will also make you fruit or vegetables fall apart and look a lot less pretty. So, be sure to use cold water!
**Adding too much lavender to your recipe can be like eating perfume and will make your dish bitter. Because of the strong flavor of lavender, the secret is that a little goes a long way.
Cutting the cucumber rind off into strips makes the ingredients look more sophisticated and also removes the possibility of a waxy taste from the rind. Slice the cucumber thinly.
In a gallon glass pitcher, large beverage dispenser (any large pitcher), add the ice cubes, cucumbers, cold water, mint sprigs, and lavender. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours. The flavors will intensify the longer it sits.
May be served up to 3 days as the mint will wilt and turn brown.
A favorite among both men and women, this skin-softening gel with healing aloe vera and antiseptic lavender and tea tree Oils helps razors glide smoothly over the skin for a close shave while protecting it from nicks and chaffing.
After a warm-water rinse apply to face, legs, or under arms. Shave first in the direction of the grain of your hair, then against the grain. Rinse well. Leaves your skin feeling ‘bright’ and supple with the clean, woodsy scent of lavender.
