Cooling Mist Spray

Oooooh, the hot summer days are upon us and as excited as we are to have them here, some days are just a little “too” hot.  Especially during fourth of July week in TN where we visit every year.  This recipe is courtesy of Stacy McDonald over at The Common Scents Mom and it has been tried, tested and approved by my active boys who love to be outside, even in the heat.  I hear, “Mom, can you spray some cooling mist on me, I’m really hot?” as a common phrase around here now, instead of, “I’m hot, do I have do play outside?” 😀

Cooling Mist Spray Recipe

  • 4 oz. glass spray bottle
  • 5 Young Living Wintergreen essential oil
  • 25 Young Living Peppermint essential oil

Directions: Add the essential oils to the spray bottle, and fill the rest of the way with water.  Shake to evenly disperse the oils and than store in refrigerator until ready to take with you.  Toss into your bag and away you go.  When you are ready to use, spray the back of the neck, back, and arms.  Can spray forehead if careful enough to stay away from eyes. (It also helps refresh and rid that “stinky boy” smell from sweating and playing, until it’s bathtime).

  1. This is awesome sis, I might have to give it a try =0) I bet the spray helps keep mosquito’s away too; it has been said that peppermint is a natural bug repellent. By the way, LOVE the ad-lib to your son’s photo lol
