Beat the Heat and Get Outside!
Getting outside in the sun is a great way to uplift mood and spend time as a family, but sometimes too much sun exposure can quickly end your fun, especially when it’s over 100 outside.
To cool your body try a homemade Sun Soothing Spray.
This soothing spray is filled with powerful ingredients that calm and soothe the skin. One of the primary products used in this spray is doTERRA’s Peppermint essential oil. Peppermint is a perfect after-sun essential oil for the same reason it is beneficial for oral care–its high content of Menthol. The menthol gives a nice cooling feeling while the lavender and tea tree reduce inflammation and redness.
Keep this spray in your car, purse or diaper bag for a super easy, safe, effective, on the-go cooling and soothing spray!
