Detox water aren’t something new but, even though they’ve been around for a while they’re still all the craze.
Some people drink detox waters to lose weight, though there’s no evidence of that helping. Others do it as a way to train themselves out of sugary drinks. Others simply do it to include something new and healthy in their diet.
Regardless of the reasons, detox waters are here to stay so why not try the following orange detox drink recipe to help you improve not only your health but also the appearance of your skin and your hair?
Oranges are amongst the healthiest fruits out there, as well as one of the most readily available. They’re packed with all kinds of vitamins, including Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Niacin, B-complex and many more.
Not only that but oranges also contain minerals, such as calcium, iron and even phosphorous. All of them part of a healthy diet.
If that wasn’t all, oranges are juicy, delicious and easy to include in your day to day life, be it in the shape of orange juice (the freshly squeezed kind, not the packaged one) or orange detox water.

Let’s get started!
Recipe 1: Orange Infused Detox Water for Your Skin
This is a super easy recipe that can be completed in three simple steps.
To complete this recipe you’ll need:
- Fresh oranges: Make sure they’re firm and ripe without showing any signs of decay. (Choose the quantity based on how much water you’re planning to make but one per serving is a good rule of thumb)
- Large glass bottle: Make sure the opening is large enough to slide pieces of your orange through it.
- Fresh water: If you can start with cold water from the very beginning, much better.
Step 1: Slice the Oranges
Slice the oranges in thin slices or, if your bottle is on the small side, quarter them.
Make sure not to remove the peel, as this will help add flavor to the water.
Step 2: Fill the Bottle
Place your orange slices inside your bottle.
Make sure your bottle is clean before doing this and don’t forget that the orange slices will swell in size so getting them out might be a challenge if your bottle is too small.
Step 3: Fill with Water
Once the oranges are inside the bottle, fill with cold water and leave in the fridge overnight. This will ensure the water is thoroughly infused with flavor and nutrients.
Make sure to drink your detox water in the next couple of days.
Recipe 2: Aloe / Orange Detox Water for Your Skin
This recipe is also very simple and can be completed in three easy steps.
- 2 whole oranges, quartered.
- 1 lemon, freshly juiced.
- ¼ cup of aloe vera gel, as fresh as possible.
- Mint leaves to taste.
- Fresh Water
- Glass Bottle
Step 1: Mix the Juice
Mix the aloe vera juice with fresh water, stirring thoroughly to ensure it blends well with the liquid.
How much or how little water you should use depends on your personal preference.
Step 2: Fill the Bottle
In the glass bottle, place the quartered oranges, the lemon juice and the mint leaves.
If you prefer, you can mix the lemon juice with the aloe vera water instead.
Step 3: Fill with Aloe Juice
Cover the ingredients with the aloe vera juice / water mixture, then leave in the fridge overnight.
Drink every morning for better results.
