The hot summer air, the sunburn, the 'hot flashes'. So many things that make you feel hot and uncomfortable. What better than to spritz yourself or the air to help relieve the uncomfortable feeling from being too warm.
Many essential oils can be used in a spray bottle to help cool you down, whether it be from the air temperatures or your inner fire (for those women approaching or in menopause) or if you have been out in the sun a bit too long to cool down that fiery sunburn.
Most adults and especially children like to get spritzed!! If they or you are sunburned and you can cool them down without touching that sunburned skin that makes the sunburn hurt even more, then both of you will so much more happy.
Some commonly used oils to help you feel cool includes Lavender, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Geranium, Roman Chamomile .
Spritz as often as desired to help you cool down. Spray on arms, and legs.
Due to the Peppermint do not spray on face.
If you wish to use this mixture near the face, dampen a cloth with plain water then apply a light spritz to the dampen cloth before placing the cloth on your face.
A spritzer made with Roman Chamomile, Rose Otto and Lavender is very cooling and relieving.
1 drop Rose Otto 3 drops
5 drops Lavender to 2 ounces distilled water
Shake well, spray as needed to help cool you.
Adding some of the above mentioned essential oils to distilled water and spraying in the air will help you to feel cool. The same rule of thumb applies to sprays.
A little essential oil can go a long way. Do not add more than a drop or two of Peppermint to any spray as it feels cool in small amounts but can feel very warm if too much is added.
Do not add more than 6 drops of essential oil to 2 ounces of water. Shake well before each spraying. We have several colors and styles of Spray topped PET plastic and glass bottles and vials to help you mix and store the size of ‘spritzing spray’ that will work for you and your family.
