Having tummy trouble? Mint and Lavender both will cure a upset stomach and help flush your system. No wonder many Day Spas use both in their water, food and of course aromatherapy massages, facials and scrubs. You can have your own spa day at home with this delicious tummy calming, cancer fighting water. Your breath will be fresher, your tummy happy and your skin glowing after a day of drinking this water. If you don’t have a fancy little bag like the one shown just use a coffee filter, take a string off a tea bag and tie it up, easy right?!
You can keep re-using the bag of spices until you no longer taste them. I like to re-fill my pitcher of water when there is about 1/3 left, this way the flavor is evenly distributed.
Makes one bag-
1 tbsp Lavender dried or fresh
1/2 tbsp Mint dried or fresh
Tea bag or coffee filter and string from tea bag
Place Lavender and Mint on the baggie or coffee filter, tie up and place at the bottom of a large pitcher, cover in ice 1/3 full then fill the rest up with water. Place in fridge for 10 minutes before serving, pour into a favorite glass, I like wine glasses, I feel like I am indulging even though my drink is Zero calories.
Need some good Lavender, I love all things local so I hit up the Farmers Market. If you are not lucky enough to have a Lavender vender at your Farmers Market try out Central Coast Lavender their products are all natural and very reasonable. Make sure to try out my Day Spa Cucumber Lemon Water too, it is great to detox after a weekend of too much drinking or eating… or both
Check out my favorite cookbook Pretty Delicious, this book taught me how to cook healthy and how to feed my body what it truly needs. My 150 lb weight loss would have never happened if I hadn’t picked up a copy of this book. The author is a model turned chef, turned Top Chef turned Iron Chef Judge, we are talking some fancy delicious food here!
