Staying hydrated has never tasted so good! I have been a fan of infused water for a while now and I am so happy to see something so healthy trending on the web. It is extremely important that we drink enough water throughout the day, but with so many other choices out there it is difficult to make the right one. By infusing water with your favorite fruits and herbs, you can make it as enjoyable as it is good for you. My favorite part about infusing water is that there is no wrong way to do it. It is an ongoing experiment and you can constantly try out new things. For todays post, I tried out three new recipes and one of them has become my new favorite.

1. GRAPEFRUIT + CUCUMBER + MINT

3. LEMON + LAVENDER

After allowing the water to sit for a little while, I tested all three and discovered that the lemon and lavender was my absolute favorite. The grapefruit, cucumber, and mint combination was too strong for my taste, while the watermelon, blueberry, and lemon thyme was too subtle. Ironically enough, I had thought that I would like the lemon and lavender least of all three, but the refreshing combination was unbelievably delicious.

If you have any infused water success stories—or failures—I would love to hear all about it! Feel free to comment and share below.


As women, we are constantly searching for the next best thing in beauty. Whether it’s for our hair, skin, or nails, we are always looking for ways to update and improve our routine. As a gardener, I am constantly searching for ways to utilize my garden in my every day life. Homemade beauty products are such a blessing, for both your budget and your body, and this rosemary and mint hair rinse is one of my most favorite discoveries yet.

All you need is a few sprigs of rosemary and mint, a metal colander, and a large pot.

Then, in just four simple steps, you are ready to rinse.

1. Fill the pot with water and place the sprigs of rosemary and mint inside the colander.

2. Place the colander on top of the pot so that the sprigs touch the water.

3. Boil the water for 5 minutes. Then, let it sit for another 5 minutes to cool.

4. After your regular wash routine, simply pour the rinse over your scalp for a long-lasting clean scent and fresh feeling!
