Refreshing Cucumber Spa Water (Detox Water Series)

Welcome back to the Detox Water Series! I will be in Cinci and sitting outside in the heat on Saturday for the Western and Southern men's semifinals. After a long day in the sun I turn to cucumber water for it's rehydrating and replenishing properties.


What You'll Need:
8 oz. water
Ice
5 slices of cucumber
What You'll Need to Do:
Choose your favorite mason jar or glass.
Mix all ingredients together in the glass.
Stir.
Drink three a day.
Enjoy!
Try the following ingredients to give your cucumber water a little more punch!
  • Mint: Mint is rich in vitamin C, calcium and magnesium and aids in digestion.
  • Herb Blend:  Rosemary& Thyme  are great source of iron, calcium, and potassium, and adds vitamin C.
  • Basil: Basil includes iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, vitamin C and potassium. It also has antibacterial properties and contains DNA-protecting flavonoids.
  • Lime: The benefits of lime include weight loss, skin care, improved digestion, relief from constipation, and eye care.
  • Strawberries: Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, strawberries are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. They are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a good source of manganese and potassium. Just one serving (about eight strawberries) provides more vitamin C than an orange.

If you can't get your hands of fresh ingredients, try peppermint, rosemary, thyme, basil, and lime essential oils. I use and sell Young Living Essential Oils.
