STEP 11 - WATER BREAK

Staying hydrated is essential for wellness. WATER is good for metabolism and weight loss, helps flush out toxins, boosts energy and concentration, and is good for the skin. It also supports digestion and helps your heart pump blood throughout the body.

Unfortunately, many people—including college students—don’t drink enough water for their body’s needs.

Good news: many Essential Oils taste great and provide additional wellness benefits. Why not use these powerful drops to help increase water intake?

Before we make some water-flavoring suggestions, let’s talk about the basics of internal use. All you need is a drop or two of Essential Oil. They are VERY concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Also, oils do not completely dilute in water, so be careful when using “hot” oils, such as Cinnamon, as they can irritate the mouth or stomach lining.

To determine if an Essential Oil or blend can be used internally, check the label. If it can be used in water, nutritional facts will be listed. If it doesn’t have these supplement facts listed, do not use it internally.

Glass bottles are best when using Essential Oils in water. Essential Oils are so concentrated and powerful that they can break down plastic bottles, which lets chemicals leak into your water over time.

Stainless steel or PET plastic containers can work in a pinch, but while the oils won’t break these materials down the way they do regular plastic, they might leave a lasting scent or flavor that you can’t get rid of.

Glass is the way to go, when possible.

Citrus Oils taste GREAT in water! Just a drop or two can jazz up plain water. Citruses are also good for the immune system, which is always a bonus when sharing close quarters (like small dorm rooms and crowded lecture halls) with other people.

Here are some favorite water-flavoring Essential Oils:

Lemon

Grapefruit

Lime

Tangerine

Wild Orange

Lavender

Peppermint

Cinnamon

Frankincense

Ginger

Fennel

Protective Blend

Metabolic Blend

Detoxification Blend
