Lavender and Blueberry Infused Water


Infused water is a great way to refresh yourself on a hot summer day. It is also a lovely addition to any table setting. It’s so simple to do and fun. Think of all the flavor profiles you can create.  Need to relax and unwind? Try a combination of lavender and blueberries.    Lavender is known for its relaxing scent and blueberries,  with their abundance of antioxidants and phytonutrients, are known to do the same. The rich colors of both ingredients will have you feeling at ease.
