Jul 05 2012   Whether your summer travel plans include time on the beach, camping with the kids, hiking with your sweetie, or a long car trip, all of summer’s heat and humidity can leave you feeling… well… yucky.  In addition to sweat and grime, you’re dealing with sticky suntan lotion, stinky smoke from your grill, and residue from all of that bug spray you keep having to slather on! So, how do you take full advantage of your summer holiday and still feel clean and fresh? By tapping into the power of aromatherapy! Forget about all of the complicated travel tips.  Instead, with the right blend of essential oils, you can feel cool and refreshed — even on the hottest of days!  Before you head out on that next summer trip, be sure to follow these 5 tips:

1. Invigorate yourself with mint

Spearmint and Peppermint essential oils both have natural cooling properties, so these essential oils will make you feel fresh and alert. Whether you’ve just finished a long hike or spent the day in the car, all you have to do is add 5 drops of oil with a bowl of ice water and use a towel to rub it on your skin. You’ll instantly feel cool, calm, and collected. And, if you’re planning on being out in the hot sun for a prolonged period, infuse a towel with either of these oils and wrap it around your neck. All you need to do is get a bowl full of ice water, add 5 drops of oil, and stir. Then, just give your towel a good dunking, wring out the excess water, and you’re good to go! Combine that mint-infused towel with plenty of fluids to drink, and you’ve got an instant prevention tool against things like heat exhaustion and heat stroke!

2. Clean off with Lavender

 

If all of that heat and humidity leaves you feeling sticky and gross, you’re not alone. Luckily, Lavender essential oil can help! It’s got antibacterial properties, so you’ll be able to get rid of any germs you’ve picked up during your summer travels. You can actually make your own antibacterial wipes with some water, some oil, and a towel. Just add 5 drops of Lavender to a bowl of ice water, stick your towel in, wring out the excess water, and you can clean off your hands, face, or neck. Plus, you’ll get a nice cool down in the process! To keep clean on the go, infuse some towels ahead of time, and stick them in a plastic bag. That way, you’ll have an antibacterial wipe anytime you need it! And unlike those antibacterial gels and wipes you see in the store, lavender actually smells good! It has a clean floral scent, instead of that toxic chemical smell that you get from most other antibacterial products. No matter how sticky or grimy you feel, lavender will make you feel much better!

3. Get some sunburn relief with a moisturizing blend 

 

  A summer sunburn can leave you looking and feeling absolutely awful. Not only is it terrible for the long-term health of your skin, but the pain and discomfort from a sunburn can ruin your entire summer holiday! Luckily, aromatherapy fans can get some relief with the right blend of essential oils. Start with 1 ounce of Jojoba Oil. Since it’s a great moisturizer, it will keep your skin from drying out — meaning you won’t have to deal with as much itching and peeling as you normally would with a sunburn. Then, add 5 drops of cooling  Blue Chamomile essential oil, so that your sunburn won’t burn quite as badly. And, finally, top it all off with 10 drops of Lavender. Since they have anti-inflammatory properties, Lavender and Blue Chamomile can prevent the aches and pains that come with sleeping or even sitting with a bad sunburn. This blend won’t just make you feel better; it will also make you smell better! Instead of dousing your skin in traditional sunburn remedy creams and sprays — and smelling like a medicine cabinet — this blend can leave you smelling fresh and floral!

4. Use essential oils to tame your tummy

If you’ve accidentally downed some foreign water during your summer travels, drank too much of the spiked punch at your friend’s barbecue, or eaten too many summertime treats, it can leave your stomach feeling downright awful. Luckily, when you rub essential oils like CardamomGinger, and Fennel essential oils over your stomach, it can help relieve stomach cramps and spasms associated with diarrhea, food poisoning, and other tummy troubles. Combine 5 drops of each essential oil with 1 oz Carrier Oil and massage your abdomen with circular movements. Just remember to drink plenty of fluids to prevent your stomach issues from turning into dehydration. If plain water doesn’t sound good to you, check out my recipe for Ginger-infused iced tea!

5. Fight off bugs with our own BUZZ OFF  Natural Bug Spray

Buzz Off has Eucalyptus Citriadora. This essential oil is actually approved by the Environmental Protection Agency to keep bugs at bay. Like those traditional bug sprays, BUZZ OFF can keep you from swatting and scratching. But unlike traditional bug sprays, it’s gentle enough to use on even the youngest members of your family. Plus, it smells much better than all of those chemical-laden bug sprays! Ready to make the most out of your summer holiday?

aromatherapy for the summer

Summer aromatherapy blends.  While we all love to have fun in the sun, the warm season does bring along its own set of fun-spoilers like bugs, sunburn, rashes and exhaustion. However, with Aromandina’s therapeutic essential oils to the rescue, there’s no reason why we should worry about all that at all! Summer can be a lot more enjoyable and trouble-free with Aromandina’s SUMMER SURVIVAL KIT. Whether you are on vacation or going about your routine business, essential oils can help you stay cool, active, energized and healthy.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

During summer, rashes, sunburns, allergies, infections and insect-bites are as common as sunshine. Cool-off your skin and your senses with RESPIRO ALLERGY CALM (also available in a convenient, easy-to-carry ROLL-ON bottle). This blend is especially helpful in soothing irritated or inflamed skin and also promotes faster healing of burns, bruises and blisters. RESPIRO ALLERGY CALM is an effective blend of essential oils like Amni Visnaga, Hyssop, Chamomile, Lavender, Niaouli and Palo Santo – all of which possess calming and anti-inflammatory properties. Keep this handy at all times to fight away the unpleasant surprises life throws up every now and then.

No More Travel Troubles

Summer is an ideal time to head for a long vacation or go camping with your family. Very often, long hours of travel can take a toll on your health and cause travel sickness, heat exhaustion, dehydration, fever, fatigue and headaches. Don’t let fatigue dampen your spirits – protect yourself and your family from the heat with VIGOR MEMORIA and VIGOR ALERTA BODY MIST. These two blends contain energizing and invigorating ingredients like Spearmint, Peppermint, Cardamom, Eucalyptus and Rosemary that improve concentration and keep the senses fresh and alert. Wherever you go or whatever you do, these products will prove to be great companions.

Have a Bug-Free Summer

Bugs and mosquitoes can ruin even the most pleasant summer day. Apart from being extremely annoying, they are capable of spreading infections and diseases. Teach these pesky things a lesson with the BUZZ-OFF INSECT REPELLENT AROMATHERAPY SPRAY and they will never bug you again.

Here is what our clients are saying about Buzz-Off!:

“Buzz Off is just what we have been asking for! Safe, effective bug repellent with a pleasant scent we tested it out camping and no pests! The poodle loves it too!! Thank you Cristina” “We had a barbecue tonight and I don’t have to tell you here in Georgia about the bugs! I brought the Buzz-Off spray for everyone to use, they loved it and loved the way it smelled as well and how easy it was to apply. Thank you for such a wonderful product.”

“Summers in Georgia are a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other biting insects.  I was delighted to hear that Aromandina developed a “healthy” bug spray and jumped at the chance to try it.  I was not disappointed!  Not only does the product smell great, but it’s a perfect solution for keeping the bugs away!  Not one little nibble occurred while outside!  I can easily recommend Buzz-Off to our clients and know that they won’t be disappointed in the integrity of this great product!  Kudos to Aromandina!”
