Olive leaf tea: Recent studies proved that the leaves of olives contain olearopein, a potent antiviral and antibacterial constituent, which improves circulation and lowers blood sugar levels. When taken daily the tea can lower high blood pressure and increases natural immunity. It is known to energize and treats chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, cystitis, fevers, flu, disorientation, dizziness, and depression.
Meanwhile cold tea can be used as a wash to treat cuts, rashes, itchiness and sunburn.

This prohibition-era classic has bright, crisp flavors, perhaps originally intended to mask the harshness of inferior gin. Fast forward to present day – this cocktail still makes for smooth sipping. In fact, it’s often billed as the gin drink for the non-gin drinker. Adding lavender highlights the floral notes of the honey without compromising the spirit of this timeless cocktail.
Refreshing and pretty, these summertime treats use the sweeter varieties of edible flowers, including perfumed violets, fresh chamomile reminiscent of apples, young dandelion flowers with honey flavours, cucumbery borage, fragrant and lemony lilac, citrusy marigold, floral and fruity rose, and cranberry-like hibiscus. For the EDIBLE FLOWERS CHALLENGE.
