What could be more refreshing than those elegant, chilled pitchers of cucumber-infused water offered in spa waiting areas? You can bring the same sense of serenity and healthy indulgence home by making your own spa water with simple ingredients.
Cucumber Water: peel off strips of cucumber skin to expose more of the flesh (and release more of the flavor) before slicing rounds and immersing them in a large pitcher of chilled water.
Rosemary Lime Water: float lime slices and twirl sprigs of thoroughly washed rosemary in a tall pitcher of cold water.
Watermelon Mint Water: Add chunks of watermelon (seeds removed) and mint leaves to water for an unusual flavor combination
Mint Water: Add two sprays of thoroughly washed mint and chill in fridge.
Let the water mixtures steep for at least a half hour before serving; add ice according to preference.

When our modern pets breathe on us, it is sometimes all we can do to stop from keeling over from the smell! But why is it that pet owners are having to get their dogs’ and cats’ teeth cleaned under general anesthetic more so than ever before? If we take a look at diet, I think we will have the answer....|
