Sassy Water is a lot of different things to a lot of people. First and foremost, Prevention magazine's Flat Belly Diet promotes Sassy Water (named after Cynthia Sass, Nutrition Director at Prevention magazine) as a Jump Start beverage infused with fresh lemon and cucumber slices, grated ginger and spearmint leaves.
Using doTERRA CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oils I can splash in a few drops of lemon, grapefruit, ginger, peppermint and cinnamon for a new twist on Sassy Water!
Why use EOs over fresh ingredients?
Essential oils are non water based phytochemicals made up of organic compounds. They're not fat soluble nor do they include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are almost crisp to the touch and "immediately" absorbed into the skin. Pure essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue. While fresh is nice, pure essential oils are more potent and absorbent by the body!
3 drops lemon
2 drops grapefruit
1 drop ginger
1 drop peppermint
1 drop cinnamon
Add essential oils to 1 gallon of water and store in a glass pitcher in the refrigerator. Shake well before drinking!
Take a minute and read about each oil and their attributes, you'll see how beneficial daily intake of these CPTG essential oils can be. Please note, that only Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils should be taken internally.
Here's to your health! Bottoms up :)
