Essential oils are such a great way to naturally treat various issues or even just lighten a mood. If you happen to have some sitting around your house, here are a couple of ways to put them to use during the last couple weeks of summer. Remember - oils should ALWAYS be put into a carrier oil before use. My favorite is coconut oil, but you can use whatever you want! Usually a few drops of each oil is more than sufficient, they are quite potent!
After Sun/Sunburn Relief
Lavender & Peppermint
*If making a rub, use an oil as the carrier like normal. If making a spray, use witch hazel!*
Lemongrass, Lavender, & Peppermint
*If you have Citronella on hand, this is a great mix to incorporate it into!*
Bug Bite Ointment
Tea Tree (Melaleuca), Lavender, Peppermint
Tea Tree (Melaleuca) & Lavender
Lavender & Calendula
*For an extra boost, add some honey!*
*Usually I just use water as the carrier for this*
Let me know how you enjoy your oils in the summer months!
