But you can get rid of all these dilemmas if you start using essential oils from now onwards. Let us see the ways they can act as natural remedies during summer:
1. They cool you down
Essential oils like Spearmint and Lemongrass – the two oils we use in our Summer Blend– can provide heavenly relief when you’re hanging out on the beach or sitting through that doubleheader baseball game. Spearmint has natural cooling properties for both your body and your mind. As for Lemongrass, its scent is a natural stimulant, so it can help energize you through that long game of touch football or that long summer road trip.
Or, use a blend of Peppermint and Spearmint for instant cooling relief. Grab a one-ounce bottle, fill it with distilled water, then add 10 drops of oil. Then you can spray a fine mist onto your face, and it will naturally lower your body temperature, which will lower your chance of suffering heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Along with plenty of water, these oils are a must-have!
2. They help you relieve insect bites
You don’t have to let mosquitoes or allergies spoil that summer hike or camping trip. A summertime aromatherapy plan can give you the relief your Allergy Calm Roll you need when Mother Nature turns on you. The blend of oils in oul – Blue Chamomile, Lavender, and others – will be your skin’s best friend if you get a bug bite, suffer an allergic reaction, develop a rash, or get sunburned. These oils can even battle bruises and blisters, so no matter what skin issue you run into, you’re covered!
3. They kick motion sickness to the curb
Your cross-country summer road trip, your boating adventure, or your trip to the amusement park can quickly turn into a nightmare if you develop motion sickness. That’s why we created our Memoria Blend – which is a mixture of Spearmint, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Cardamom. With it, you’ll be ready to tackle all of those twists and turns! Whether your motion sickness gives you a headache, makes you tired, or just makes you feel generally yucky, just squeeze a couple of drops onto a paper towel and breathe in. Or, for long-lasting relief, wedge the paper towel into one of the air conditioning vents in your car, and you’ll quickly be surrounded by a soothing scent.
4. They help you recover from travel woes
If you’re planning a really big trip this summer, the last thing you want is for jet lag to prevent you from having the time of your life. Forget chugging coffee or just trying to plow through it. Instead, your summertime aromatherapy plan can save the day! Lemon, Grapefruit, and Bergamot – the three oils we use in our Citrus Delight Blend – all act as natural stimulants. (Personally, I love squeezing five drops of it into a warm bath as soon as I arrive. In a few minutes, I’m completely rejuvenated!)
