Lavender Scones

in Oyatsu/Snack, Vegan

*I teamed up with doTERRA to bring you this post.

I’m a huge scone fan, but all too often scones are dense and dry.  I like my scones to be rich, and a tiny bit flaky, like a good biscuit–not cakey.  These lavender biscuits fit the bill and make a delicious addition to a picnic or an afternoon tea party.  I love the flavor of lavender, but if you use dried lavender flowers, it’s all too easy to get an unpleasant soapy flavor.  My favorite way to get the flavor I love, without the soapy addition, is to use doTERRA Lavender Essential Oil.  A little bit goes a long way!  For this recipe, I use one single drop!  Not only is lavender delicious, but it has a wonderful soothing effect when ingested.  I’ll take all the soothing I can get!

Making lavender scones

The dough whips up really quickly using a pastry cutter (or two forks) and a spatula.  Then you form the dough into a square, cut it into 9 squares, brush the tops with a bit of milk then sprinkle them with sugar, transfer them to a baking sheet, and bake them in a preheated oven until the edges are beginning to turn golden brown.  That’s it.

The hard part is waiting for them to cool before you eat one.

These rich lavender scones are perfect for a summer picnic or afternoon tea party. Using lavender oil makes it much easier to control the lavender flavor without getting a soapy flavor.

Servings 9 scones
Author Rachael Hutchings


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling scones out
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling on top of scones
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 large pinch fine grain sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (I use vegan butter), cut into small cubes and chilled
  • 6 tablespoons milk (I use soy or oat milk), plus extra for brushing on the tops of the scones
  • doTERRA Lavender Essential Oil*


  1. Preheat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  2. Whisk the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, instant yeast, and salt together in a mixing bowl.

  3. Add the butter to the bowl. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal (pea-sized bits with a few larger bits of fat is okay). A pastry cutter makes this step quick and easy.

  4. Pour the milk into a small cup or bowl. Dip the end of a toothpick 1/2-inch (3/4-inch for a bit stronger flavor) into the bottle of lavender essential oil. Stir the toothpick in the milk.

  5. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and slowly pour in the milk. Mix with a spatula to form a dough.

  6. Sprinkle some flour over a smooth work surface. Turn the dough out onto the work surface.

  7. Work the dough quickly so it comes together into a cohesive ball. (It will be a bit shaggy, not smooth.) Flatten the dough into a square that is about 1-inch thick. Cut the dough into 9 squares, then move them to the prepared baking sheet.

  8. Brush the tops of the scones with a bit of milk and sprinkle them with granulated sugar.

  9. Bake them in the preheated oven for 16 -- 17 minutes, or until the edges have turned golden brown in color.

White plains is a beautiful city in Westchester with hardworking and compassionate residents. White plains residents must travel to university campuses, colleges and offices, and even attend business conferences without delay. They require reliable and timely taxi service within Westchester.
