Ingredients Needed for Honey Lavender Syrup

  • Honey (fresh is best)
  • Dried Culinary Lavender Buds
  • Water

That’s it! I told you this syrup was easy and these ingredients are easy to find thanks to your local grocery store or Amazon. As I mentioned, fresh honey is best because it will have more of a floral flavor from the pollen that will enhance the lavender. If you don’t have fresh honey, you can always use store-bought.

Is Lavender an Edible Flower?

Yes! All lavender is edible, however, I recommend using culinary lavender for food and drinks because it has the best taste and is sweeter than regular lavender. Lavender you see in gardens and yards has more of a bitter taste. Most of the dried lavender you find in stores and online are culinary, but double-check the description or ask if you are not sure. I’ve found dried culinary lavender at my local grocery store in the bulk section and on Amazon.

How to Make Honey Lavender Syrup

  1. Place the honey, water, and dried lavender buds into a saucepan over med-high heat on the stove.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil until it bubbles up. Stir for 1 minute and then remove from the heat.
  3. Allow the mixture to steep and cool for at least 1 hour.
  4. Use a funnel and a fine mesh strainer to remove the buds from the syrup. Discard the lavender buds. Place the syrup into a sealable container and store in the fridge.
