- 1 cup of lemon juice
- 2-3 drops doTERRA Lavender essential oil
- 2 handfuls of ice
Combine water with the squeezed lemon pulp, the 1 cup of lemon juice, the sugar, and the water and stir vigourously until well combined. Then add the 2-3 drops of doTERRA Lavender essential oil and stir. If you do want a more purple color to your lemonade you may want to consider adding a drop of purple food coloring.
