If you are in Arizona, you may already know how important it is to drink water every day. Especially in the summer – it’s critical to stay hydrated.
Drinking water is essential for our health – unfortunately it’s probably the last choice people make when considering a beverage to quench their thirst.
Drinking soda is probably one of the worst things you can do for your health – and it’s great when you can replace that unhealthy drink with one that is better for you and your body long term.
You can read more about balancing pH and metabolism at LiveStrong – some of my favorite Essential Oils to include in my water are Grapefruit and Lime – Lemon and Tangerine place a VERY close 2nd!
I try to drink 7-8 glasses a day – more now that I am expecting. I find that the more I drink, the more my body craves water.
Using Essential Oils in your Water
Simply add 1-2 drops of the above Essential Oils to your water each day – you will always want to try to use Glass or Stainless Steel with Essential Oils too (avoid plastics!)
One tip though: Always make sure you are using Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and check your bottle labels… as much as I am a supporter of Essential Oils, as not all are safe for internal consumption.
The cheaper oils you find at health stores are inexpensive because they are NOT meant for internal consumption – they are fragrance oils, or have an incredible amount of chemicals and very little “true” oil.
The Federal Government does NOT regulate Essential Oils as much as they should, therefore (much similar to food in stores) many opt to use “Pure” and “Natural” as part of a marketing practice (just like chips that are on display in the store.. that are often times STILL not healthy!)
