I absolutely love the sunshine and always look forward to summer, however with soaring temperatures and heat we are not used to it’s important to look after ourselves and our bodies. Essential oils are a great way to help cool you down and invigorate your mind and body when the heat gets a little too much.
When certain aromatherapy essential oils are blended together they enhance their effects helping us heal and thrive naturally. With this in mind you can blend a multitude of oils together to create your desired effect and outcome.
I’ve put together a couple of my favourite combinations of essential oils to keep you refreshed in the heat. Try these simple essential oil blends to help stimulate your senses and keep you cool.
1.Enliven and Invigorate
This DIY cooling mist and beautiful combination works together to enliven and invigorate - use it to mist around your room.
Method: Use a new plant-sprayer or a clean spray bottle. Put in warm but not boiling water, add the essential oil and shake before use. It can be sprayed in the air as you would any spray or on the carpets, curtains and furniture, but do not let the water fall on good wood.
2.Relax and Release
The sunshine is a brilliant natural mood booster but sometimes extreme heat can lead to feelings of agitation and listlessness which is why it’s so important to take extra care of your body and mind. If you are short on time you can use our pillow mist as a mood mist, our relax and release blend is my favourite combination of essential oils. My three hero notes; the wonderfully calming and sedative qualities of Marjoram, tension releasing effects of Nutmeg and deeply relaxing Lavender harmonise to bring you back to a relaxed and grounded state of mind.
3.Cool and Soothe
Use our cool and soothe pulse oil which has been synergistically blended to help relieve the symptoms of headaches and cool you down, it’s perfect for on-the-go stress relief. This unique combination of seven essential oils including cheerful orange, mind-balancing grapefruit and calming rose is blended with Obsidian, leopard skin Jasper and moonstone. I love to use this beautiful blend when feeling hot and bothered and need to cool off. If you’re in need of a moment of calm, roll over your pulse points to rebalance your mind and body.
I hope that using these essential oil blends will bring you some joy and will help you to keep cool in the heat. I love to keep mine in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. There are so many different ways essential oils can be incorporated into your daily routine and I hope these recipes will inspire you to think more creatively about how to use them.
