Lemongrass is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisine and also as a medicinal herb in India.  With its subtle citrus flavor it is commonly used in teas, soups and curries.  Culinary lavender, usually English lavender is the most commonly used species in cooking.  Its aromatic sweet fragrance is delightful in desserts and tea blends.herbal-teas-wood-box

For a stronger lavender flavor, put lavender buds into sugar for two weeks to allow the essential oils and fragrance to transfer; then the sugar itself can be used for baking or to sweeten your tea.
