You guys, this may be my favorite way to ingest oils. It’s so easy and tasty! I like to fill up a water bottle all the way and add two drops of citrus oils.
My favorite drinking combos (each bullet is a different recipe…don’t drink these all at one time):
• 1 drops Tangerine, 1 drop Lime
• 2 drops Citrus Fresh
• 2 drops Grapefruit
• 1 drop Lime, 1 drop Orange
• 2 drops Lemon
There are brave people out there that drink Peppermint in water. Nope. Peppermint is an incredibly strong flavor so it’s not really my thing. If it’s your thing, then go for it!
Now, if you are an oil newbie, there are two very important things to remember:
#1. You can ONLY use glass containers when drinking oils in water. Citrus oils will degrade plastic because they detox petrochemicals. The good part about that is that is that they flush those nasty chemicals form our bodies! The bad part is that they will eat through a plastic cup or water bottle in a flash! And they will leach chemicals from that plastic and you’ll drink it. Ick. Use glass.
#2. Start slow. Start with one drop of citrus oils in your water before moving up to more. Work up to the level of oils that work for you and drink up! Another thing about starting slow is citrus oils lead to detox. Starting slow will ensure that detox will be slow and probably unnoticeable. Starting with a bunch of drops at one time may lead to some, *ahem* undesirable effects. So, yeah. Work your way up. (P.S. This strong detox speaks to the potency of the oils.)
These citrus oils would also go really well in iced tea! Give it a try!
DISCLAIMER: The things I share with you are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any illness or be a substitute for any medicine. It is true that I have found less need for OTC medicines, but you have to make choices that are right for your family. Another choice I’ve made is to exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils. I believe they are 100% pure without any synthetic additives. That’s huge to me! I have read a lot of material on different essential oil companies and Young Living is what I have chosen. If you choose to use essential oils, I encourage you to do some research and choose the brand that you believe in.
