At Herbal Water®, the  beverages  are made by infusing organic culinary herbs in pure water.

You’ll find Ayala’s Herbal Water a delightfully refreshing, mellow yet complex aromatic drink. Enjoy our taste of the garden, with fresh spring breezes in every sip. 100% Good For You!™

Can i use these in cooking i wonder?

Like Cinnamon ORange PEeL , to thin down,half n half,for buttermilk,for that gorgeous added flavour to pancakes.
And i can add some to stew the apple Compote or berry compote with a squeeze of lime and lods of honey for a  Super healthy Topping too!!!
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum)
A warm and wonderful tasting ancient spice, derived from the dried inner bark of tropical trees.
Orange Peel (Citrus sinensis)
The colorful skin of this citrus fruit adds bright flavor and wonderful aroma.

Like Cloves,Cardomon, Cinnamon  ,to brew some green tea to soak d dates for a very healthy, no fat, Irish bread[ absolutely delicious recipe HERE]

Cloves (Eugenia caryophyllata)
Clove buds have a distinctive, concentrated aroma, which is sweet and penetrating.
Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum)
The world’s third most expensive spice, cardamom is a sweet aromatic seed indigenous to the mountains of southwest India. Cardamom seeds are collected by hand. They have a warming delicate quality and a very rich, complex flavor.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum)
A warm and wonderful tasting ancient spice, derived from the dried inner bark of tropical trees

Like Lemon Grass,Mint Vanilla , to fix my daily cuppa [o black tea or cafe] ,added flavor in a jiffy.
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
Native to Southeast Asia, lemongrass is an important herb in Asian cuisine. Calming and relaxing, lemongrass refreshes the palate with its citrusy, flowery aroma.
Mint (Mentha viridis)
The Mentha family is made up of many species. In this beverage we chose spearmint for its refreshing quality and distinctive aroma.
Vanilla Bean (Vanilla aromatica)
Vanilla is the second most expensive flavor in the world and has been prized for centuries for its wonderful taste. Ayala’s Herbal Water beverages are made with the real bean, not the commonly used synthetic imitation. 
The fruit of a climbing orchid native to South America, the vanilla bean is cultivated in few regions of the world. A great amount of labor and attention is required for the hand pollination, individual curing and processing of the vanilla pods. Vanilla’s taste is rich, deep and persistent, and contains more than 200 different volatile molecules.

Like LAvendor Mint , to fix my lemon drink, crushed ice n honey. . .how cool is dat?
Lavender (Lavandula)
Lavender is a Mediterranean plant, long and widely valued for its clean, fresh and wonderful scent. The fragrant flower buds have a slightly sweet and elegant floral flavor.
Mint (Mentha viridis)
The Mentha family is made up of many species. In this beverage we chose spearmint for its refreshing quality and distinctive aroma.
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
Native to southern Asia, lemongrass is an important herb in south Asian cuisine. Calming and relaxing, lemongrass refreshes the palate with its citrusy, flowery aroma.
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
Thyme has a distinctive, penetrating, powerful yet delicate flavor, and has been used and enjoyed since ancient times. Thyme is an important flavor in French, Italian, Spanish and Turkish cuisines as well as many others.
Like Ginger , Lemon Peel ,for any of the Above or to thin my ButterMilk, Dash of Mayo, garlic & herbs ,salad Dressing for SUmmer Salads....
Ginger Root (Zingiber officinale)
Ginger adds a refreshing, bright aroma, rich in citrus, floral, woody and pungent notes. Its spicy, hot flavor has made it one of the most popular ingredients in cooking.
Lemon Peel (Citrus limon)
The fragrant yellow outer layer of the lemon adds light and fresh notes.

Imagine what that would do to ur salads et all....

Lemon Verbena Geranium -
Lemon Verbena (Aloysia triphylla)
Verbena is often called the “Queen of lemon-scented herbs.” The aromatic leaves of this European favorite have an unusually pure, fruity lemon note, with a clean fresh finish, and no sourness. No wonder it’s mentioned as Scarlet O'Hara's mother's favorite plant in Gone with the Wind

Very Interesting and each flavor has an interesting little write up too, click on the flavour and u'll be there in a jiffy!
