Lavender Water. .

belle79129July 2, 2006

Hello to everyone here today. I was curious about lavender water. To create a batch you need the flowers or the greenery? All I have grown is the greenery and it smells fantastic. Oh and, Why do some recipes call for alcohol?

Thanks for your time.

The best and purest perfume, and the medicinal properties, come from the flowers, but if you're desperate, use the leaves. Alcohol is a preservative. If you use just water, it should be discarded after 24 hours if being used internally. In other words, it goes off unless you use alcohol.
