I get super bored with water.
There, I said it.
I know, I know. "Everyone gets bored with water", "Don’t add flavorings because it’ll only trigger cravings for sweets", yada yada yada. I've heard it all. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that I get ridiculously bored with water.
And yeah, I’ve infused. I’ve infused more random fruits and berries and cucumbers just this last summer than most people have in their entire life. I was standing around in my kitchen and gazing out at the backyard when I hit some inspiration.
Mint, some limes, some lavender… I felt like I was drinking some exotic post massage spa drink.
While it’s pretty self explanatory, I will break it down for you. Start with your mint... I used approximately six leaves from my mint bush and simply dropped them in the bottom of a drop-in infuser jug.
I have English Lavender growing in a pot for a natural mosquito repelling, but this beautiful purple perennial plant is also an edible herb! Snip the flower of one stem and after rinsing, pop the blossoms into the top of the infuser. Fill her up with water, place the pitcher of water in your refrigerator for a few hours or up to 48 hours and then enjoy!
Mint leaves soothe upset stomachs, improves digestion, reduces stress and anxiety and could improve brain function.
Limes improve digestion, may lower blood sugar, fights inflections and reduces inflammation.
Sooooo yeah, this is basically like a swollen, anxious person's miracle water. You're welcome!
