Use our suggestions below or combine your favorite fruits, spices, herbs and vegetables to create delightfully delicious spa water. Opt for seasonal ingredients and flavors to bring in the spirit of the holiday.
To make, add ingredients to water pitcher or beverage holder, stir and enjoy!
Try these combinations:
- Apple slices, cinnamon sticks and cloves
- Cranberries and clementine slices
- Pomegranate seeds, lime slices and mint leaves
- Orange slices and star anise
- Sage leaves and shaved fresh pumpkin
