You Need A Drink … Of Water!

You need a drink … of water!

I’m sure you all know that you should be drinking water throughout the day. You need it to flush out toxins, to rehydrate your body and skin and to help your organs work better.

However, did you know that by adding an essential oil to your water, you could be giving that water an extra boost of goodness?

Here are a few of my favorite essential oils I like to add to support my health:

1. Lemon

Adding a few drops of Lemon essential oil to your water may help alkalize the body and even may detox your liver. It’s also pretty yummy tasting!

2. Lime

I like to add Lime and Lemon to my water because it may help with weight management, as well as offer immune support. Lime always makes me think of being in Key West too, so that’s just one more added bonus, because happy thoughts can also boost your immune system!

3. Tangerine

Another favorite of mine, just because it tastes sooooo good in my water. However, I have heard that it may also digest fat, as well as help you fight food cravings, so why wouldn’t you add it to your water?

4. Grapefruit

I’m not a grapefruit fan, though I do find the taste very refreshing. There are many, many people who swear by it’s ability to detox your body and reduce the bumpy appearance from stored fat. And who doesn’t want something that may take that yucky look away?

5. Ocotea

This oil may help maintain normal blood sugar levels and support your weight loss efforts. While you can add it to water, I would rather just get it by drinking some tea, which is super delicious!

6. Orange

The scent of Orange automatically lifts my mood, which is one of it’s reported properties. It may also help boost your immune system. If you’re ever feeling a bit low, you might want to add some Orange essential oil to your water.

7. Peppermint

There are some people who LOVE putting peppermint in their water. I have used it when I had an upset stomach, but I must confess, it’s not one of my favorite water additives. Besides using it for upset tummies, it can also boost your immune system, suppress your appetite and may stop a headache in its tracks.

8. Ginger

This can help support your digestive system. It’s a good one to have on hand when your tummy isn’t feeling it’s best.

So, there you have some of my favorite essential oils I like to add in my water for different reasons.

Not only will you get all of the benefits of drinking water (I like to drink spring water), but you get the added benefits of these powerful essential oils.
