 HERBAL INFUSED WATER An infusion in water is a simple process using botanicals that release their active ingredients and are typically dried herbs, flowers or berries. Herbal infused water has become popular, because its a healthier alternative for those of us trying to avoid soda and sugar drinks. These recipes are beautiful, creative, and healthy for you. I found it so appealing that I began infusing my own water, and want to share with you how to make them.

  Fill a large pitcher with pure water; add your ingredients such as herbs, fruits or berries. Refrigerate over night. Strain water removing all ingredients. It’s important to strain the water within 24 hours before any bacteria has a chance to form. Having deliciously infused water is exciting and you may design your own recipes you may want to share.

Orange Spice
Place in a large pitcher of  purified water
1 lg organic orange sliced thin 
1 tablespoon cardamon 
1/2 vanilla bean sliced lengthwise 
Refrigerate leaving  over night, Strain the water within 24 hours removing all fruit, spices or herbs
And now enjoy the flavored water!  

 2 more recipe's out of hundreds  of combinations. 

lemongrass
1 lg stalk of lemongrass coarsely  chopped  
1/4 cup mint  slightly crushed
1/2 vanilla bean cut lengthwise

Blackberry Rose 
1/2 cup blackberries or raspberries
1/4 cup dried rose petals 
1/2 vanilla bean cut lengthwise

Theses  types  of water containers are beautiful to store your water in, but  buyer beware  get some reviews on the one you wish to buy, cause I have found that most of theses containers leak.
