Stormy's notes for this recipe:
Lavender Vodka isn't your everyday vodka. It has a very distincive taste.

lavender flowers have an antiseptic, calming and carminative activity, and nerve stimulating effects. They are used in cases of digestive disorder, in cephalalgia as a flavouring and corrective agent, in hypertension, cardiac affections, headaches, insomnia, melancholia, dizziness or bronchial asthma.

headaches, anxiety states, rheumatism or distension, the consumption of an infusion of lavender flowers is recommended
For treating colds, influenza or fever

Stormy, you have so many interesting recipes, and I have saved many of them. I was wondering about the effect of lavender on the nerves in the feet and ankles of diabetics. I have neuropathy in my feet and lower legs, not to mention that something is going on with my fingers as well. Any thoughts as to benefits I might receive from using lavender. Also, I really don't know where to get lavender.

Carol, you should be able to get lavender from the People's Food Co-Op... I have before... in the bulk spice area...

Hi Stormy, I was wondering how this recipe would work to flavor cakes and frostings instead of vanilla? I make home made vanilla in a similar way.

Thanks for the info, Colleen. I never go to the co-op, but I will do so.
