Crystal Infusion 'Detox' Water - Benefits & Recipes

Water is essential for our body to perform as 60% of our body weight is made up of water. Our bodies use water in all the cells, organs, and tissues, to help regulate body temperature and maintain other bodily functions.

Dehydration can cause brain fog, toxins to build up in your system and digestive distress. There are so many reasons to drink our daily water intake... however the stats are saying otherwise with 3/4 of us chronically dehydrated!

💦 Water is refreshing but can be plain and boring... which is why some people turn to sugary drinks and unnecessary additional calories - only for flavour!

Rather than switching to sugar-loaded drinks for a hit of “flavour,” you can turn to fruit and vegetables to lend a lift to your water. 🍓🍋🥝 🍉

What is Infused Water?

Infused water adds more to your H2O. It not only gives you the same refreshed feeling that water does, but it adds flavour and nutritional benefits. Adding different combinations of herbs, fruits, teas and spices to your water can lead to endless recipes that are not only delicious, but pleasingly good for you. 

How to Make Infused Water?

Instead of buying flavoured drinks from the supermarket, just make your own! It’s also an easy way to avoid unnecessary sugars, preservatives, or chemicals that are often added to drink mixes or commercially pre-packaged flavored H2O.

Making infused water is actually quite simple. Just fill you Crystal Infusion Bottle with water and your favorite combinations of fruits, herbs, tea and/or spices. For stronger flavor, prepare it a day ahead and keep it in the fridge overnight before drinking. But our preference is to make it fresh with chilled water and sip slowly after letting it infuse for 10 minutes at least.

Setting your Intentions with a Crystal Infusion Bottle

When filling up your Crystal Infusion Bottle with your drinking water or any other beverage, you can set your intentions by intuitively focusing on what you'd like to heal or manifest into your life. Speaking your intentions to the water is also a proven way to create high vibrational water according to Dr. Masaru Emoto's research on water consciousness.

Benefits of Infused Water

Infused Water (or Detox Water) not only taste delicious but are a fabulous way to help motivate yourself to keep drinking your daily water needs. Depending on what you include in your recipe, infused water can have an array of benefits. For example, lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit and berries all are excellent sources of Vitamin C. Besides providing essential nutrients, it caomes with many more perks, including:

  • Helping to control bloating: Many women suffer from bloating due to excess salt or hormonal fluctuation. Water-rich foods, such as lemon and cucumber, can help control this problem.
  • Relaxation: Infuse your drink with herbs that are linked to relaxation, such as sage, camomile, etc.
  • Anti-aging: Adding dark berries and pomegranate seeds, which are rich in antioxidants, can help protect against the effects of aging.
  • Boosting metabolism: Many fruits can boost your metabolism and help with weight loss, so be sure to add in your raspberries, strawberries, tangerines, and any other delicious fruit.
