As Summer progresses and the temperatures rise, we may begin to feel a little sluggish and lazy in the heat. Luckily, we are based on the Sunshine Coast, where a beach is never far away. However, beaches and pools do not always fit into our days. Here is a cooling blend to beat the summer heat. Use it in a diffuser or in a carrier oil and dab onto your pressure points.
- 5 Drops Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
- 5 Drops Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus citriodora)
- 5 Drops Pink Grapefruit (Citrus paradise)
For topical use, add this blend to 10ml of almond oil (or carrier oil of choice) in a roller bottle and shake well. This makes a 5% dilution. Please be sure to do a “patch test” before using on larger parts of the skin, and always refer to the safety guidelines of essential oils before use
