If you know me, you probably know that I used to hate tea. I was convinced I would never like it. Not any kind I tried came even close to enjoyable to me. Then, I started working at a coffee stand. It is also well known that I can’t stand coffee, plus I’m breastfeeding so I couldn’t handle the caffeine anyway. If you’re wondering how I can “barista” at 4:30 in the morning with no coffee, read this post. Anyway, at the stand I work at, we are offered a free drink with every shift that we work. I don’t like coffee, but how could I turn down free drinks? I started making sugary hot chocolate and steamer drinks and as time wore on, I was looking into healthier options. I decided to try chai. It was worth a shot, right? It turned out to be a great choice. Now I love chai. Chai is my life and chai loves me.
I started buying my own chai at home. I don’t have a favorite brand. They’re all amazing so far. Then, I started playing around with oils. You might remember one of my first posts where I talked about flavoring drinks with oils. It was all downhill from there. I became an oily chai addict.
My favorite chai-oil mix used to be 3 drops lemon, 1 drop thieves, honey, and sugar. I drink that any time I feel a cold coming on or when I feel like I just need an immune system boost. It’s even delicious iced.
Today I mixed it up a little and tried something completely new and I am so glad I did. I decided on a fruity mix to enjoy while my daughter took a bath. Momma and baby relaxing time, if you must. I used 2 drops grapefruit and 2 drops orange along with some honey and sugar. Wowza. Can you say yum? My taste buds did a little dance when this beautiful concoction touched my lips.
Here’s your assignment for the week: go buy some chai and make your own chai mix with essential oils. Share below! Remember to only ingest Young Living oils. You can’t trust the purity of other brands. Read your labels to ensure that your oil is safe for consumption.
This is my personal testimony. Please consult with your physician prior to using any kind of natural remedy or supplement.
