Keeping yourself hydrated is necessary for good health - yet how many of us forget to drink enough water throughout the day, or just plain don't like the way it tastes? Try infusing your water with the wonderful flavor of fresh herbs!
Gently rinse your herbs before you use them, then fill a one gallon dispenser with your desired herbal beverage starter (water, sparkling water, tea, lemonade, etc.).
Using your hands, crush the herbs a bit to release their natural flavors, then add them to the dispenser. Use more or less herbs based on your flavor preference. Stir vigorously to blend.
Chill and enjoy - or serve immediately by straining, pouring over ice, and garnish with fresh leaves and flowers.
- Additional flavor ideas: add fresh berries, citrus, cucumber slices, melon - the possibilities are endless!
- The longer your beverage stays in contact with your herbal mix, the stronger the flavor will be.
- Store your beverage in the refrigerator up to one week.

Mary B. - Hooray for the Beverage Kit!!! First time batch...Using a gallon container, it began with 8 ounces of strawberry lemonade (a guilty pleasure from a chain restaurant)..added 6 bottles of spring water....added kit, as directed, crushing and breathing in the delicious aroma of the herbs...left in fridge for 24 hours......now enjoying the satisfying flavors over ice in a tall glass.....mmm this is treat!!!! ooh, perhaps to freeze some in an ice cube tray to be run through the snow cone maker..........aah the possibilities are endless..thank you for the Beverage Kit. It was a splurge turned magic recipe starter....five bucks went far!!!
Meg R. - So excited for the herbal beverage kit! It smells fantastic! Thanks for such a great service!
Crystal H. - The kit took smoothies to a new level! Avocado, blueberry, strawberry, apple, banana, creamy almond butter, unfiltered wildflower honey, all items from the Herbal Beverage Kit (mint, dill, rosemary, lemongrass, marigold petals) and some flaxseed (the only ingredient not conveniently delivered to my doorstep).
