Last Taste of Summer and Lemons

Updated: Aug 31, 2019

I know we are already for fall and all, but I made one last ditch effort for some festive summer treats... all about lemon.


Goat yoga is tomorrow at the farm and Labor Day is Monday. It's time to wear white for the last time til spring (um unless you're a rule breaker like me and love you some winter white- um hello the snow didn't get that message either). It's the last time you'll see fresh watermelons roadside and fresh market summer fruits. So, I thought I'd take it up a notch this weekend with some fun lemon inspired recipes. And better yet, I'm using essential oils for them! Oils in food and drinks?! Yep, you heard me! We will be diving deep into all the things that you can use oils for over the next few months, but for now, just take my word that Young Living oils {and only Young Living} MAY be used internally.


First up is Lavender Lemonade. This recipe is fresh from the Farm Day at Young Living in Utah.
