Thirsty Thursday: Cool off with a glass of Lavender Lemonade!

Summer is here to stay in the Lone Star state. Lemonade is a Southern staple, maybe second after sweet tea.

If you want to add a refreshing twist to your lemonade, add one drop of lavender EO to your pitcher!
NOT 1 drop per glass, a little goes a LONG way!

If you can’t get enough friends together to drink a whole pitcher, there is a way to add a touch of lavender to a single glass! Touch the end of a clean toothpick to the tip of the oil bottle. This allows you to get less than a drop. Then just swirl the toothpick in your glass!

Also if you’re feeling lazy, we’ve cheated and added a drop to a bottle of Simply Lemonade. It was delicious, but a little overpowering! If you’re going that route, a whole drop is still a little much in a bottle that size. Try the toothpick method until you reach your desired amount of lavender.


Start your mornings off right: with a shot of NingXia Red!

On this lovely Thirsty Thursday morning,
we wanted to tell you a little about how we start our day.

NingXia Red is a tart, fruity drink that is SUPER high in antioxidants. I know everyone knows the term, but what’s the big deal about them? Antioxidants are basically superhero crime fighters that can neutralize free radicals (AKA villains on the atomic level). If left alone free radicals wreak havoc on your body, one intercellular structure at a time.

Now this might sound a little over-exaggerated. Is there really a Marvel movie going on at the microscopic level? Well, yes. Maybe less tight-fitting costumes, but if your cells were to have an arch-nemesis it would probably be free radicals.

There are so many other benefits to this red concoction, but we’ll leave the rest for other posts. For now, just enjoy a daily shot (2 ounces). I (Chesla) had mine in a Balance Complete shake this morning. Jessica is all about the packets to take on the go!
