Essential Oils to Soothe a Sunburn

Lavender Oil is well-known for its ability to reduce inflammation and redness. Combine a few drops of Lavender Oil and a few drops of cooling Peppermint Oil with some aloe vera gel or coconut oil and gently apply it to burned skin.

Essential Oils to Keep Towels Fresh

Nobody likes stinky towels! When packing your beach tote, throw in one of our ShowerMists. Spritz your beach towels as they dry between uses for a fresh scent and to keep mildew away.

Essential Oils to Beat the Heat

Create a cooling spray by adding 3-5 drops of Peppermint Oil to a 2-oz. spray bottle. Then fill with water. Spritz on arms, legs, feet, and chest for a cool relief from the hot sun.

Essential Oils to Keep the Mosquitos Away

Reach for some Tea Tree Oil as a natural, toxin-free bug repellent. It’s also great for treating previous bug bites! Rub a drop into the affected area for relief and speedy healing.
