Did you know that seventy-five percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated? A mere one-to-two percent drop in our body’s water levels can induce dehydration, and thirst is often an initial response. However, thirst is not the only symptom of dehydration. Sticky mouth, low urine output, dark pee, dry skin, head tension, and muscle cramps can result of mild dehydration.
What causes dehydration? Excessive sweating, a fever, diarrhea, and vomiting can cause you to lose water more than usual. But it’s more often than not that we simply have a distaste for water or forget to drink it. So, how do we avoid dehydration and still have the heart to drink a healthy amount of water?
Essential oils may provide an incentive to convince you to drink your water. Not only do they make a bland beverage taste great, but they also have many health benefits! Let’s discuss.
DoTERRA offers a variety of essential oils to spice up your water intake! One of the top-selling oils, Lemon, is a great addition to your water. Lemon naturally cleanses the body, aids in digestion, and supports healthy respiratory function. Add a drop of Lemon to water for a refreshing boost of digestive, metabolic, and respiratory health function.
Furthermore, Tangerine is an oil that you MUST try in your water. A sister of Lemon, Tangerine supports healthy digestion and metabolism, cleanses and purifies, and promotes healthy immune function. Tangerine is a favorite among citrus oils for its happy aroma. Add one-to-two drops to your water for a happy taste and improve your mood.
Enough talk about citrus oils. Have you ever added Spearmint to your water? Spearmint has been used for centuries for its digestive benefits. You can add it to your water for occasional stomach upset. Moreover, Spearmint can be used to cool you down on a hot day with its abundance of menthol. Add one-to-two drops to your beverage if you don’t have ice! It’s important to mention that Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option for children or those sensitive to Peppermint.
DoTERRA is sponsoring a promotion today for ALL THREE of the oils mentioned above. Buy 15 mL Spearmint, get 15 mL Tangerine and 15 mL Lemon for free! It’s a limited time only! Don’t miss it! We’d love to hear your testimonies.
