If you are in Arizona, chances are you know that with the onset of this heat, comes the need to drink more water. Considering the options for beverages out there today, I’d say a majority of people forego the water for fancier (and more attractive drinks) like Soda, or Tea, Sweet Tea, and more… many of which have entirely a crazy amount of sugar.
Drinking water is great for you – you should drink 8 glasses a day. If you don’t drink enough, you might feel sluggish and tired, lethargic… and your skin will show that you are dehydrated. You will experience constipation (after all, water helps MOVE things through your body – right?)
Essential Oils are great for giving your water some life – and many of them support your body in different ways. Young Living has the Vitality Series that are designed FOR internal use – cooking, baking, putting in your water, and supporting certain parts of your health. They are labeled as “Vitality” for internal use per FDA requirements, too.
Simply add 2-3 drops of Vitality Oil to your water each day – and since this is therapeutic grade Essential Oil you will want to use a Glass or Stainless Steel Bottle or Cup (not plastic!)
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, 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!)
If you are interested in using Essential Oils for your personal care, wellness, or home, Young Living offers a tremendous opportunity to score their oils at wholesale cost (24% OFF) when you buy the premium starter kit (which includes 11 popular oils, a diffuser and samples of various other items)… plus $40 in freebies, Facebook training, classes, and great support.
