Best Ways to Use Essential Oils for Summer
Summer is a great time to use essential oils. There are lots of fun ways to us oils effectively. Check out these interesting and powerful ways to use essential oils that you may have never heard of before.
Essential oils can be used outdoors, as foot care, on vacation (both in the car and out), at home if you’re not going on vacation, and in grilling recipes. I hope you enjoy all these great ideas of ways to use oils in the Summer.
Outdoors in Summer
First of all, although sun protection is talked about a lot, not very many sunscreens are beneficial for your skin. Since our skin absorbs what we put on it in 26 seconds, we need to make sure what we are putting on our families is safe but effective.
Mineral sunscreen with essential oils is the best sunscreen because it doesn’t contain harmful chemicals that you or your child could absorb. There are plenty of DIY recipes out there but if you don’t want to risk making it wrong, Young Living essential oils (the only brand we use) now has a mineral sunscreen available. You can get this at wholesale or retail, but wholesale is always better.
If you happen to forget to apply sunscreen or your DIY recipe didn’t work as well as you wanted, you can also get After Sun Spray with a wholesale.
If you enjoy fishing or boating, these oils can help you get your sea legs (along with ginger). I apply peppermint and ginger before going out and then every hour and have great results.
After cleaning fish, use lemon essential oil from Young Living to help get rid of odors.
