There are days when the water I drink tastes absolutely delicious. There are other days when I need to add something fun, and healthy, to my water to entice me to drink a bit more. If you would like to drink more water, but wish it tasted like something, anything, read on.
How can I keep water healthy, but make it taste good?
Here are some options to make water taste a little bit livelier:
- add lemon to water (a lot or a little, up to you)
- add a few sprigs of fresh mint
- add raspberries and cucumbers
- add your favorite fresh fruit (strawberries, oranges)
- add fresh ginger (with lemon, or mint, or a drop of honey)
- add chopped celery to water for a bit of natural salt
What if I don’t like things floating in my water?
Great question. Containers are available that have a cylinder within them to hold fruit and vegetables. Personally, I prefer to drink my water from a glass container, rather than from plastic. I have seen both types at local grocery and big-box stores, as well as on-line.
You could also create a tea-like concoction by mixing water in a pitcher a few hours before you would like to drink it, then strain the contents when transferring to a carry-sized bottle. When I am feeling under the weather, I often make a hot tea containing fresh garlic, ginger, honey, lemon, and a pinch of sea salt.
Adding a pinch of sea salt to cold or hot water, especially when we are infusing our water with fruit, can keep our electrolytes in balance. This is important if we experience frequent headaches.
Now that I know about Essential Oils, and how they can help us raise our frequency and move into better health, I add them to my water, too! Learn more in my FREE Essential Oils Basics eCourse.
