Lavender - Hedgecraft Resources

*de-lurk*

Hullo! I'm just getting into making up my own, er, "potions." Basically rum infusions of various sorts at this point. One of the things I made up was about 300 ml of lavender rum, which turned out pretty strong. It's pretty good for mixing with the other flavors, but I was wondering how much is likely to be too much to drink in a sitting.

I know lavender is considered medicinal and tinctures are used for depression. My infusion was not nearly as strong as a tincture. I had maybe 5-10 grams of leaves in the mix, which as I have gathered is also not the part that people usually use. Any reason I should be worried about this? I pretty much grew the plant myself, pesticide-free, after buying it as a seedling.

You've had too much when the room starts spinning and you fall off your chair! *lol*

Sorry. I don't know.

Heh, actually I'm probably enough of a lightweight that you may be right!
