Looking for a way to kick up the flavor in your water bottle everyday? Might I suggest adding citrus essential oils to your glass every morning. It’s amazingly delicious and an easy way to increase the amount of water you drink every day!
While everyone’s taste buds are different, I adore adding a drop each of the different citrus essential oils – lemon, tangerine or orange, grapefruit or lime. Fill up a mason jar or our favorite glass water bottle with water and ice and load in those oils!
If you are lucky enough to get the bottle of Citrus Fresh vitality essential oil in your Premium Starter Kit from Young Living, you can add a few drops of that to your water bottle.
I keep all my citrus oils together on a rack in my pantry next to the spices. Each morning I fill up my mug with coffee and my water bottle with water and I drop in some oils and give them a swirl It’s such a part of my morning routine that I pretty much do it on autopilot.
I highly recommend starting with one or two of the citrus oils and start mixing and matching until you find the recipe that’s perfect for you and your daily glasses of water.
