Make your own DETOX WATER

5 years ago

I recently found out about a tasty, refreshing and easy to do detox water and I’d love to share it with you. It is very, very easy to do and believe me, it tastes so good! First of all, you need a 8 oz pitcher or a simple bottle. I use two 4 oz glass jars. Then you need a tangerine, a cucumber and a lemon. Enough. Half cucumber/lemon/tangerine per 8oz. You can make 2 pitchers or bottles and save them for the next day, no problem at all (the more the fruits rest in the water, the better)

Wash, peel (and wash again) half cucumber, half lemon and half tangerine and chop them .

Put the small pieces into a bottle or glass jar or pitcher and add water (tap water is fine!)

Shake well, add ice if you like it, and enjoy!

I think this water is going to be my favourite drink the next summer…I’ll just add some mint leaves and ice cubes. Can’t wait for summer to come!

Among cucumber properties: “clears the body of toxin, cleanses and purifies the blood. Very helpful in detoxing the body for any conditions of toxicity. Aids digestion.Calms the mind…lifts depression” read more here

Lemon properties: “cleans, nourishes, softens and refreshes the entire body, as well as possessing curative principles, being a staple of natural remedies and may consume as juice, teas, tonics and some therapeutic blends.” More here

Tangerine properties: “tangerine is rich in vitamin C, is also a powerful antioxidant, which helps in protecting and repairing the cells from damage caused by free radicals. The vitamin C in tangerine is also responsible for slowing down the aging process. It keeps the skin supple and healthy.” Read more about tangerine properties here (so many!!)
