Well, Detox water is really easy to prepare. It is basically water infused with fruit, herbs, or seed. So, the basic technique of preparing it is infusing the herbs, fruits, or seed in the water.
Take water in a container and put any fruit, herb, or seed you would like to prepare detox water. But, make sure to not add lemon at the beginning as water infused with lemon for a long time can degrade the taste of water and make it zesty bitter.
Then, leave fruit, herb, or seed in water for at least 4-5 hours (preferably overnight). This makes sure water will be properly infused with all the nutrients you are using. You can put it in the freezer if you like it chill. Then, just a few minutes before drinking, squeeze the desired amount of lemon and drink it.
