Keep your body hydrated by adding a few drops of Orange Plus oil and other Plus oils to your water for a burst of flavour. Low calorie, low cost alternative to fizzy drinks. No sweetener required, 100% natural.

No, it’s not a good idea to randomly add essential oils to water confusedhmm

A lot of them are poisonous even in small quantities- essential oils are very highly concentrated

Thank you

I came across this topic reading a blog. Appreciate your thoughts and comments.

You keep you baby hydrated by during the (non-alcoholic, non-brackish) fluid of your choice whenever you are thirsty.

No snake oil required.

Keep your body hydrated
Aka drinking

ShirleyPhallus Sun 22-Oct-17 19:34:51

I agree with you. About 60% olive oil to 40% water makes for a refreshing drink imo

Let's try that again! My keyboard is being excessively cranky this evening.

"You keep you body hydrated by drinking the (non-alcoholic, non-brackish) fluid of your choice whenever you are thirsty."

"No snake oil required."

Stupid idea. Why not add a slice of orange to your water?

You sound like you are trying to sell this stuff.

You do not just shove some essential oils in water. It doesn't dilute them, because the oil just sits on top of the water. If you want to fuck up your oesophagus, then go ahead - but it's unsafe.

I have a job. Thank you very much. I am looking for advice. Ever so aggressive.

SparklyMagpie Sun 22-Oct-17 20:27:19

Advice on what?!

MarthaArthur Sun 22-Oct-17 20:28:33

I drank essential oils once and ended up sick in hospital with a blistered throat and stomach.

MayFayner Sun 22-Oct-17 20:30:30

I just drink water on its own confused

Joern Sun 22-Oct-17 20:30:36

I have found my answer. Not safe as it will sit on top of water and might damage the oesophagus. I will stick to the good old green tea to loose weight.

You didn't ask a question.

You just instructed us to add (a brand name?) essential oil to water.

Which is a silly idea.

Erm. So. Think best if we take this one down, and stick to the wine. Cheers for the reports.
