How I gave up sugar Overnight

My morning coffee was usually dressed in a thin layer of cream and one splenda or sugar-free french vanilla.  Listen, I know splenda is awful for you so I decided to stop using it all together.  I moved on to just half & half with no sweetener and add 1 drop of essential oil for a fun flavor POP!
il_570xN.896036963_nfceHere are a few of my favorites:

Thieves Vitality – Thieves Vitality combines Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils to create one of Young Living’s most popular products. These ingredients synergistically combine to offer one of the key benefits of Thieves Vitality oil: overall wellness and support of a healthy immune system.

Peppermint Vitality – Peppermint Vitality oil can support healthy gut function and digestive efficiency.* These benefits make it a great way to start your day or end a meal. Additionally, Peppermint Vitality oil as a dietary supplement may support exercise performance to help you have a great workout.

Orange Vitality – Orange Vitality has a clean, refreshing scent and flavor and contains the naturally occurring constituent limonene.

Cinnamon Bark Vitality – Using Cinnamon Vitality oil brings a warm taste and sensation and can support healthy digestion and help maintain a healthy immune system.

Adding a drop of essential oil to your beverages such as coffee, tea and water is a great way to cut out sugar but keep the flavor and add a few amazing benefits to your day!
Fruit-Infusions.pngI also love adding these essential oils to my tea and water throughout the day:

Bergamot Vitality – Cold pressed from the fresh bergamot fruit that gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor, Bergamot Vitality™ essential oil has a fresh, complex citrus taste that makes it the perfect addition to tea. The taste of the Bergamot Vitality is somewhere between a sour orange and lemon, making it a distinctive, zesty addition.

Lemon Vitality – Lemon Vitality can add a bright, dynamic flavor to tea and water.

Basil Vitality – Basil Vitality oil has a sweet, warm scent and flavor! I live to add it to grapefruit infused water!  Or try a sweet concoction like basil-strawberry lemonade. If you want a lighter basil flavor in your dish, dip a toothpick in the oil and swirl it in your preparations.

Grapefruit Vitality – Grapefruit is known for its invigorating citrus scent and delicious, tart taste. Grapefruit Vitality essential oil can also support weight-management programs when taken internally and paired with a healthy diet and exercise.* Add Grapefruit Vitality oil to water to give your drinks a little zing!

Here are a few great fruit + essential oil combos:

Grapefruit + Basil Vitality
Blueberry + Lemon Vitality
Orange + Bergamot Vitality
Cucumber + Lemon Vitality
Watermelon + Lime Vitality

What is your favorite combo?

Just a reminder to always use glass to drink from when ingesting essential oils!  If you are a straw person, you can also purchase stainless steel straws and/or paper straws – no plastic. Many essential oils are incompatible with plastic material.
