Lilac Infused Water

The essence of spring is something I long, all year round. I made a promise to myself that I would try to preserve spring as very best I can this year. Whether it be through photography, drying flowers, recipes and most of all, experiments.

Lilacs are one of my absolute favorites. Growing up, we had a large lilac bush at our house in Rosemont. My mother would leave a pair of pruning sheers for who ever wanted to take some home on the way past our house. Now,  at my home that my partner and I bought December of 2019, our property came with a few very lovely lilac bushes. TWO colours purple & white!!

I ended up doing a couple different things with the lilac flowers. But let’s start with the most simple, yet lovely “recipe”.

So besides the obvious, I would reccomend giving your lilacs a shake before bringing them inside. The earwigs seem to love hanging out in them. And a good rinse before adding them to your water. Pick your lilacs somewhere that is not near a road/polluted area.

I let my lilac water soak overnight. It is such a subtle, delicate, floral taste.bit is absolutely LOVELY.

1 cup of lilac flowers (no stem)

8 cups of water
(or really however much you want,
it is a very faint flavor so it
will be hard to over do!)

Give a good shake & let sit over night. ♡

Thanks for joining me in today’s post. I hope everyone is staying safe out there and can find some peace with the flowers today ♡

Lilacs In Full Bloom

Ooh the lilacs are just so lovely aren’t they? We have 3 huge bushes on our property and I couldn’t be more thrilled to make some spring bouquets! As the lilacs are in full bloom, so are my allergies… The beauty of our lush yard weighs out the crazy allergy attacks any day though.
