Does anyone know any spa water (or things of the like) recipes?

Here is a nice one...

1 qt. cold water
1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced (seeded or non-seeded "English" cucumber)
3 sliced lemon

Put ingredients in a pitcher and sitr.

What is your definition of "spa water"? To drink? When I hear "spa water" I imagine something for either jacuzzi or pool!

There's another thread floating around here somewhere with the same recipe in it. I replace the lemon for mint in my water. Take a gallon of your favorite water and pour enough out to hold two chopped/seeded English cukes and about 5 big sprigs of mint. Let "marinate" for about 3 days. The cuke is crispy and refreshing when you get a chunk and it really does make you feel good on a hot day!

The water in my spa is heated to around 140F, and it has way too much chlorine in it to be drinking it. Besides, being at the beach, there is almost always sand at the bottom.

I think this water is cool and easy to make.
I'll do this afterwards.

But, why did you name this water as 'Spa Water'?

catalyst - caine is being haha funny!

A spa is a place where you go to exercise, be pampered, maybe get a facial and a pedicute. "Spa Water" just references a drink that could be possibly found at one of these spas. It would be refreshing, clean tasting, and healthy.

Lol, I'm getting confused also, KE! I think so many threads are overlapping on different sites that I can't remember where I answered what. I know I commented on your Spa Water recipe somewhere on the internet.
