Almost everyone I talk with today is so busy and tired most of the time. Having an activity packed, stress-filled life can really drain your energy reserves. I can relate because I spend a lot of time working online and on the go so I’m always trying to figure out the best way to keep my energy high naturally. I drink my energy boosting berry peach coconut water whenever I need that extra energy to help me feel better! If you’re feeling low in energy or sluggish during the day this water will really help you! I know that drinking plain water can get so boring! I wanted to start sharing some of my personal recipes for seasonal fruit infused waters so you can have some good alternatives to just drinking plain water.
My delicious infused water recipe has fresh blueberries, blackberries, doughnut peaches, coconut water, spring water and wild orange essential oil. These wonderful ingredients taste great and all work together to help increase your energy naturally. One of the main causes of low energy is dehydration that occurs when we don’t drink enough water. Since our bodies are primarily made up of water, we need to replenish this water on a daily basis in order to stay hydrated and energized.
Staying hydrated especially in hot weather is really vital for vibrant health. If you eat a lot of cooked or dense foods, exercise frequently, work outdoors, are detoxing, or taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications, it is really important that you drink enough water to stay hydrated. I find that by infusing my waters with nutrient-rich ingredients that taste delicious, it gives me more reasons to want to drink plenty of it.
Drinking fruit infused waters also helps remove cravings for sodas and commercial energy drinks. Today’s water recipe has a tasty natural sweetness that comes from the fruit and coconut water. Unsweetened organic coconut water is a fabulous water to include in your beverage choices!
Coconut water is an isotonic beverage that is a great source of potassium, calcium, and magnesium which are important minerals and electrolytes you need to help your body stay healthy. Coconut water also contains B vitamins, amino acids, and iron that are all important nutrients for radiant health.
I put wild orange essential oil in this water because of the wonderful flavor and fragrant aroma that it adds to my recipe. I really love the smell of wild oranges! Wild orange essential oil makes me feel happy and energized whenever I smell its beautiful fragrance! Wild orange and frankincense are my favorite essential oils to use on a daily basis.
Wild orange essential oil is cold pressed from the orange peel and is GRAS for internal use. Only use essential oils internally that state for dietary use on their label.
I am a essential oils educator and I love using essential oils every day. If you want to find out more about how to use essential oils in your life for wellness, feel free to email me with questions or to schedule a free essential oils phone consultation at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Energy Boosting Berry Peach Coconut Water
Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
Makes 64 ounces
1 cup organic blueberries
1 cup organic blackberries
2 doughnut peaches— pitted and cut into ½ inch wedges
6 cups (48 ounces) spring or filtered water
2 cups unsweetened organic coconut water (click here to see the coconut water I used in the recipe)
1-2 drops wild orange essential oil-optional
1 gallon clean glass jar with lid (here’s a good option)
1. Place blueberries and blackberries into the bottom of your jar. Lay the peach slices on top. Pour the spring water and coconut water into the jar and add the wild orange essential oil drops into the jar. Stir the water with a spoon, cover with a lid and put water into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight for the best flavor.
2. After the water infuses overnight you can enjoy it! You can leave the fruits in the infused water for up to 2 days before you need to strain them out of the water. On the second day, I like to add more water and few more drops of wild orange essential oil in once I drink up the first batch. The fruit flavor is not as strong but it still is very refreshing. After 2 days you can eat or compost the fruit rather than just throwing them away. Most of the flavor will be extracted from the fruit but you can still add them into a smoothie with other fruits and veggies. Enjoy!
