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 to cool down that fiery sunburn.
Children especially like to get spritzed!! If they are sunburned and you can cool them down without touching them and making the sunburn hurt even more, they will so much more happy.

A spritzer made with Roman Chamomile, Rose and Lavender is very cooling and relieving.

Adding some of the above mentioned essential oils to distilled water and spraying 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. Use PET plastic spray bottles to mix your sprays in as essential oils can deteriorate other types of plastic.
