Adding essential oils to water adds a lovely flavor to the water, enticing you to drink more. The oils each have beneficial properties that will give your body and mind a boost.
Be sure your oils are safe to ingest. I use Young Living oils for their high quality. I know these oils are safe. Even so, some oils can never be ingested so read the label carefully.
