Infused Water for Eye Health

Drinking plenty of water and maintaining hydration throughout the day is important for many reasons — including the health of your eyes.  Dehydration can cause symptoms of dry eyes, eye redness and swollen eyelids.
These easy to follow recipe steps can help you create a refreshing infused water drink to maintain healthy fluid levels during the party season.

 

Infused Water Recipe

1. Use a large glass pitcher or jug.

2. Add a bunch of chopped herbs from this selection: Mint, ginger, basil, rosemary.

3. Add one or two of your favourite fruits and vegetables(washed and sliced) for example choose from a selection of cucumber, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemons, limes, oranges, kiwi, peaches, watermelon  and  add to the pitcher.

4.Fill the jug with fresh filtered water and leave to cool in the refrigerator  for a couple of  hours so the flavours can blend into the water.
Popular flavour combinations: Mint, ginger and cucumber; strawberry, blueberry and basil; peach, mango and rosemary.

The infused water will last for up to 2 days; however, the fruit and veggies may get water-logged so often it is best consumed within 24 hours
