If you’re using flowers for your ice cubes – absolutely make sure they are edible and that they haven’t been treated with any chemicals first. The flowers used here are bellflowers (campanula). There are many kinds of bellflowers and not all kinds are edible . If you’re feeling insecure you can always use rose petals, lavender, lilacs or elderflowers instead. As with all flowers,  to be on the safe side, just eat small amounts.

What you’ll need
Herbs or edible flowers
Ice cube tray
Water

Fill ice cube trays with water, about 1/3 full. (Many recommend boiling the water first to make sure the ice is as clear as possible).
Put the flowers or herbs in the water and freeze (to ensure the flower/herbs stays in place). Fill with water to the top and freeze again.
