At first this topic may seem…..well…..boring! However, I am an avid water drinker and I know a lot of you out there are too. I have heard the comment “water is boring, so I don’t drink it” come out of many mouths, but I beg to differ. Since our bodies are composed of approximately 65% water, it is important to drink a lot of well filtered water every day. Water cleanses our bodies, and helps pull toxins out of our system. I add a variety of essential oils to my water, and it is terrific!
Here is a breakdown of my thoughts when I add the following essential oils to my glass of H2O:
Essential Oil Flavored Water
Lime Oil – My favorite oil to add to water. Beautifully crisp and refreshing.
Orange Oil – I think of “happy” when I use orange oil in my water. It is mild, yet comforting.
Lemon Oil – Energizing. If you like lemonade, iced tea with lemon, or herbal lemon teas this one is for you.
Peppermint Oil – Invigorating (of course then I start craving a NY Peppermint Patty…..but that’s a different story).
The aromatic components of essential oils are highly beneficial. One of the best ways to receive the healing benefits of essential oils is to use a diffuser. Every time you lift your glass of water and inhale the aroma of essential oils, its healing work begins.
