When we normally speak of spa water, we are talking about the water in a tub. Today however, we look at Spa Water from another perspective. it’s common for resort spas to offer naturally flavored water to their guests – some people call it ‘spa water’.
Hot Tubs and Spas are great for ridding the body of toxins, cleansing the pores and skin. When you put good stuff inside of you while in the hot tub, you can ramp up the detox effects with natural fruit coolers that are easy to make, and so good for you!
Most of these infused water recipes have 3 ingredients, but in a pinch, 2 is OK. Get inventive! Raid the fridge for herbs, fruits and roots and the cabinet for spices and extracts.
Not to complicate things, but I am also a spa fragrance user, and of course I have quite a selection, big bottles of my favorites, and lots of samples of different exotic fragrances. The challenge is to try to match the essence of the cooler with the spa fragrance. I’ve made some suggestions below.
Healthy Hot Tub Coolers
1. Honeydew, Cucumber, Lime, Mint – [recipe] Refreshing and invigorating, these ingredients settle digestion, reduce water weight and increase metabolism. A glass or two can help stave off after dinner hunger. If you are missing 1 or 2 or the ingredients, it’s still delicious! Pair this cleansing cooler with aromatherapy like the Elixirs Eucalyptus Mint, or the Crystals Cucumber-Melon spa aromatherapy.
2. Raspberry, Rose, Vanilla – [recipe] Rich and exotic, Mash up the raspberries to release their color and rub together just a few natural rose petals (without any chemicals – organic flowers only). One vanilla bean, or you can substitute a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (almond is good, too!). This cooler will relax and soothe, and can be easily matched with other Vanilla scents or Paradise Floral spa aromatherapy scents.
3. Citrus, Strawberry, Green Tea – [recipe] – Green tea has many health benefits, but you don’t have to drink it warm! It’s the perfect base for citrus, using a blend of lemon, grapefruit and orange, to your taste. The strawberries and honey add a touch of sweetness, while the mint adds a bit of enthusiasm ~ you can pair this infused water drink with aromatherapy spa scents like Peony Green Tea Elixir, or the Jasmine spa crystals.
4. Strawberry, Kiwi, Mint – [recipe] Strawberries regulate sugar level, aid in digestion and immune system and cardiovascular health. Kiwi adds a natural tartness that’s a perfect complement to the dull sweetness of the berry. Mint speeds up metabolism and soothes. Take a big swig of this in the tub and I always feel calm, yet alert. To complement the flavors of this healthy infused water, try our Eucalyptus Mint or Kiwi Pear elixirs to add another dimension of relaxation.
Spa Water – it’s not just something on the outside of your body – add fruit infused water to your spa routine, and you’ll come out feeling great! It’s always encouraged to drink lots of fluids while you’re in a hot tub, infuse some fruit to your water for refreshing detox therapy. I try to drink 24 ounces during a 30 minute spa session. It’s become part of my necessary gear, before I head out to the spa.
