Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
We live in a town with terrible water, so we buy reverse osmosis water in 5 gallon jugs for drinking. The jugs are difficult to clean, and most "non-oilers" recommend a tablespoon of bleach and water to rinse the jugs and clean them.
I've chosen to use Lemon or Peppermint (4-6 drops), then fill the jug with the drinking water to help it mix and clean the inside of the jug. Since the theory is "oil and water don't mix", I figured the drops would simply float to the top and we might get a few really strong oil content glasses toward the end of the 5 gallons.... Wrong.
We didn't notice as much with the Lemon oil, but with the Peppermint, we could really taste it in EVERY glass we poured from that 5 gallons. I don't know how it worked, but somehow the oil was present throughout the entire 5 gallons. It was quite refreshing, and I felt good knowing my family was ingesting oils in their drinking water, but it altered the taste of our juice and anything else we mixed it with.
Moral of the story... Maybe ESSENTIAL oils and water DO mix!
