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.  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. So much so, that even the neighborhood kids come asking for it, lol!  😀

 

Cooling Mist Spray Recipe

  • 4 oz. glass spray bottle
  • 5 Young Living Wintergreen essential oil
  • 25 Young Living Peppermint essential oil
  • pinch of salt (helps oils stay dispersed in the water)

Directions: Add the essential oils to the spray bottle along with a pinch of salt, then fill the rest with water. Gently swirl the bottle to evenly disperse the oils and then store in the 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.  You can spitz the 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 of course).

… “ahhhhh!”

  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
