I don’t think I’m as thirsty as most people. I don’t usually drink a beverage with my meal. I lived in the high desert in northern Nevada for almost 20 years and I still hardly drank any water. Oh yes, I tried cutting lemon wedges but I always ended up throwing out the lemon because I’d forget to use it or… not bother.
No matter how hard I have tried, I haven’t been able to successfully up my daily water intake.
Now that I’ve incorporated essential oils into my life, I’m motivated to ingest them and so I’ve learned about adding one drop to your drinking water… It sure makes drinking water more interesting! I bought myself a glass water bottle and now I’m drinking a variety of flavored waters all the time. It kills two birds with one stone: 1.) It helps me drink more water, and 2.) it helps me ingest beneficial essential oils.
For example, adding a drop of lemon essential oil first thing in the morning adds purifying benefits and also helps alkalize your water. Plus it tastes better than plain water and has zero calories. Wild orange is good too, as well as lime and grapefruit.
