Which essential oils for Summer?
Before heading out to the beach, on a camping trip or other summer activity, pack an essential oil summer survival kit with some of the following essential oils:
Staying Alert While Driving
If you start feeling drowsy while driving, roll the window down for fresh air and take a whiff of an invigorating essential oil such as Peppermint or Rosemary. They have both a fresh, cooling and invigorating effect.
Fear of Flying Essential Oils
Three essential oils can help combat your fear of flying and stress: Orange, Chamomile and Frankincense. Add simply a couple of drops of essential oil(s) to a handkerchief and inhale as needed to relax.
Essential oils are instrumental in treating sunburn — not only for pain relief, but to reduce swelling and prevent scarring. To cool and soothe the affected area, mix a few drops of essential oil in cool, refrigerated Aloe Vera gel or Calendula oil. Apply to the sunburned area several times per day. Top essential oils for sunburn relief are:
- Lavender essential oil
- Calendula oil
- Roman Chamomile essential oil
- Helichrysum (Immortelle) essential oil
Bug-repelling essential oils
Thyme, Citronella and Clove essential oils are very effective natural mosquito repellents. Use a diffuser to keep the bugs away.
