Ahhh! There’s nothing quite as refreshing as drinking a tall glass of water. But there’s much more to water than meets the eye—or dry mouth. For instance, did you know that your body contains more water than any other substance? Or that every system in your body needs it to function properly?

Water gets rid of waste, regulates body temperature, provides cushioning for joints, and can protect sensitive tissue—along with a sea of other benefits. But are you a fish out of water when it comes to hydration? 

Whether you’re looking for a creative way to increase your daily water intake, cutting down on sodas or sugary drinks, or wanting to reap the internal benefits of a particular essential oil, adding essential oils to your water is one of the most effective ways to meet your goals, while enjoying a tasty drink

           • Add a drop or two of Lemon to a glass of water when fresh lemons aren’t available.

• If you’re trying to drink fewer sodas or sugary drinks, add essential oils like Grapefruit to your water for powerful flavor.

• Add invigorating essential oils like Peppermint or Wild Orange to your water in the morning to give you a refreshing jump start.

• Add one drop of Cinnamon Bark with honey to hot water and sip slowly to soothe the throat.*

• Place a drop of Lime in a glass of water for enhanced flavor.

• Combine Peppermint and Lemon in your water glass and drink to freshen the breath.
