DIY Infused Water For Detoxing

Water is an essential part of our survival, but let’s be honest it can be a bit bland and boring. Infused waters are a great way to spice up your water and avoid reaching for juices or sodas which can actually dehydrate you. Consistent consumption of infused water can release toxins, reduce muscle fatigue and give your body natural energy. These are some of our favorite combinations that taste delicious & provide your body with healthy nutrients. For all recipes, we recommend pouring your water first then adding the fruit & using a wooden spoon or muddler to release the flavor. Allow the water to sit for a few hours prior to drinking.
