Flowers Can Heal Too

Rescue Pastilles

Perhaps this is a very good example of the placebo effect but there's something about these elderflower-flavored pastilles that set me at ease. I'm not about to go into a long explanation of flower essences and how, according to some, they have healing properties because I'm sure I'll screw up some details. You can find a lot of info online and in books about this branch of homeopathy.

For these pastilles, please visit: » Bach Rescue Pastilles.

And I wanted to thank those who have commented on this blog! Regarding your questions about recipes, I can only, at the moment, refer to those that are listed in the right-side of the page. A lavender sugared-rim (on a Lavender Mojito, for example) is probably a mixture of fine sugar and dried lavender flowers...beyond that, I'm not sure! I haven't done a lot of experimenting lately, making candy and such. If anyone has any good links they'd like to share, please leave a comment. :)

Hi,

I don't know if you would be interested but I found a place here in Texas that has a lavender festival every year and their website has some interesting recipes on it. I haven't compared any of them to the ones in the Lavender Cookbook yet. Here's the website: http://www.chappellhilllavender.com

Enjoy!

Thank you for the link! O, I miss Texas! Oh well.

BTW, the added that link plus a few more - some of my recipe links had gone bad. Enjoy!

Hi,

Don't know if you have seen either of these before but I found them on the food network website. One of them is actually meant for the rose shaped bundt pans you had mentioned earlier. Here they are:

Hmm, those didn't paste all of the way for some reason, well anyway, you can do a search for Raspberry Rose Scones and Lemon Rose Bundt Cake with Mini Rose Bundt Cakes on foodnetwork.com and I'm sure they'll pop up. :0)
