drops of water

There is a trend that’s working its way across the internet and into many homes: mason jars as water bottles. With this trend is a clear division. Some people love the idea – mason jars are cute and photogenic – perfect for Instagram, especially when they’re decorated with these unconventional infusions. With our water filtration system, your water won’t just be Instagramable, but it will taste clean and pure, combatting the effects of hard water.

Others adamantly oppose the idea of using mason jars to drink water: their argument is mason jars aren’t functional because they weren’t designed for that purpose. Whichever side you take, there’s no denying that using mason jars can help people drink more water, particularly those who don’t like the taste. They’re more fun than boring water bottles, after all. Plus, since they are made from glass and not plastic, they’re environmentally friendly.

Infused Mason Jar Water Recipes

We recommend using glass over plastic any day. You will lower the risk of ingesting BPA, a dangerous chemical compound, and you’ll be making a small difference for the environment. Let’s not forget that you will save money with our water filtration system, which is significantly cheaper than bottled water.

Let’s be honest, they also make drinking water more exciting. There are many ways to mix and match fruits, herbs, and edible flowers. Here are some popular options to choose from.

Herbs

Some herbs taste a lot better in water than others. They also pair well with other ingredients, like fruits, flowers, and other herbs. We recommend using these herbs for a fail-proof water infusion recipe:

  • Mint
  • Rosemary
  • Basil
  • Lavender
  • Lemon verbena

Flowers

Infusing your waters with flowers offers a light flavor that you don’t usually experience with other recipes. Most flowers do not overpower the other ingredients in your infusion but only serve to complement them. You will take your water to the next level by adding these delicious flowers:

  • Roses
  • Pansies
  • Marigolds
  • Carnations
  • Dandelions
  • Begonias

Fruits

When most people think about infusing their water with something tasty, they usually think of fruits. The best fruits to add to your water are:

  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries

A tip to keep your water cold is to use frozen fruits, not fresh – except your lemon and lime. This is perfect to cool down during a hot day, or after a long workout. Infused waters are also a great way to get in your recommended daily water intake.
