It’s that time of year when we’ll be spending more time outdoors jogging, riding bikes, or just enjoying the sunshine. As the temperatures begin to rise along with our activity level, it’s important to remember to stay hydrated.
Drinking water is so important for good health. But let’s face it—sometimes plain old water just gets boring. Flavor your water with essential oils, and you’ve added great taste at ZERO calories!
