We are in the thick of summer and some of us are really feeling the heat- especially those of us without A/C in our houses!
Here are 3 tips to cool you and your space down on these hot summer days.
Tip #1 Diffuse with Cooling Essential Oils!
Did you know that you can cool down your home by diffusing essential oils with cooling therapeutic properties?
Try diffusing any of the following essential oils to refresh, uplift, and add some cooling comfort to your space:
This is so wonderful to give yourself a nice, calming cool after a long day and is particularly helpful to cool down right before you go to bed, or just as refreshing when you wake up. Not to mention, diffusing these essential oils will help purify your space! Just add about 15-20 drops of straight essential oil to your diffuser (or per your diffuser's instructions) and feel the cooool.
Tip #2 • For hot rooms and hot sleepers:
If your room is extra hot, try soaking a hand towel in water and add a few drops of soothing lavender, then place it in the freezer. When you are ready for bed, take it out and press it against your chest, face, and neck as you lay down. Be sure to take deep inhalations of the relaxing lavender essential oil.
Though you might think the icy towel would wake you up, this actually helps lower your body’s temperature and will calm your mind with the soothing scent, and will prepare your body for a good night’s rest.
Tip #3 • Aromatherapy Sprays
If you want the super simple solution for a full body cool down, try spritzing your Sunrise Mint or Lavender Rose Water aromatherapy sprays on the back of your neck, back of the knees, and on the face! I love doing this before I head out the door and after I come home from a long day of markets.
Whichever method you decide to use, stay cool out there. :)
