I’m excited to share with you my favorite essential oils in water to drink.
Ever wondered what you can use that’s natural, yet will jazz your water up a little and make it more fun and palatable?
I personally love using food grade, therapeutic essential oils. They add so much flavor and have amazing health benefits.
Back story – how I got started with essential oils in water
For a long time I would add lemon juice to water to kick start the day which has amazing detoxification and cleansing benefits.
However, after speaking with many people they did warn me of the effects that the acidity of the lemon juice would have on the enamel on my teeth.
After that, I explored the use of lemon oil in my water.
The lemon essential oil has similar properties to lemon juice which are amazing.
It is delicious and refreshing and I feel really energized when I drink it.
I then explored other oils in my water and now enjoy a series of different flavors.
Not only is it a great way to mix it up, enjoy change, and different flavors but I will choose an essential oil to use based on what I feel my body needs.
For instance, I love to kick start my day with certain oils, enjoy others throughout the day, some support metabolism so I drink them when exercising, others help digestion and some support the immune system.
I am in tune with what my body needs and so intuitively select which essential oils in water to drink that way.
Why use essential oils internally?
When you want to experience the uplifting, energizing, or calming benefits of essential oils, aromatic use provides a quick, easy way to get the benefits you want.
When you want to soothe, moisturize, nourish, or soften the skin, topical use of essential oils can efficiently deliver the desired effect.
What then, is the advantage of using essential oils internally?
While internal use of essential oils is a mystery to some, research has found plenty of safe, beneficial uses for essential oils internally.
Yes, aromatic and topical use of essential oils provides a variety of benefits; however, internal use can be equally beneficial when done properly.
Internal essential oil use offers some exclusive benefits for the body that aromatic and topical use simply cannot accomplish.
The benefits of internal use
One of the most common reasons for ingesting essential oils is to reap the internal benefits it holds for the body.
Each essential oil possesses a different chemical structure that will provide the body with unique properties and benefits.
For example, some essential oils can be used internally to promote healthy cell function, support gastrointestinal health, or maintain healthy immune function, while others may offer internal cleansing benefits.
* When used properly, essential oils hold a wide array of wellness benefits that can come from internal use.
Getting started with essential oils in water
For internal use, it is best to start with the smallest dose possible, 1–2 drops. From here, the dose can be increased as needed (again, this will depend on the age, size, and health status of the individual, as well as the desired benefit they are trying to achieve.) Dilute one drop in 120 mL of liquid as your base rule.
