Buddha Blessings

We recently visited the beautiful Ali'i Kula Lavender Gardens in upcountry Maui on the verdant slopes of the crater. The grounds were enchanting, and the gift shop was stocked with fabulous lavender products which they make themselves. We sampled the lavender lemonade and lavender scones--a different treat to be sure. Owner Ali'i Chang has planted "45 different varieties of lavender, and over 75 quality products [are] available."

Hmmm! I never heard of lavender tea. I know they add lavender to baked goods but I guess it makes sense to serve it as tea as well.

I love the smell of fresh lavendar. Actually, I use lavendar cream to help me sleep if I have insomnia (which is rare). I dab some lavender hand cream under my nose, close my eyes and voila, I'm of to dreamland in no time.

Aromatherapy REALLY works.

That lavender lemonade sounds delicious. I've never heard of it and I'm willing to try most things with lemon. ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog!
