5 Essential Oils To Stay Cool This Summer

With the heat rising to record high, summer is one of our least favorite seasons of the year. No one likes the constant heat, harsh sun and increased skin problems, right? This year you can make summer a little less annoying for your body with some essential oils that have very strong cooling properties which make them an excellent way of lowering one's body temperature naturally.

Let’s discover together the best essential oils to keep at hand in summer to freshen up after a sweaty day + more!


1. Eucalyptus Essential Oil 

The anti-inflammatory properties of this popular herb open your blood vessels and boost circulation. Cooling down your body temperature, this oil prevents a heatstroke and keeps you safe, calm, and cool in the summers.

2. Peppermint Essential Oil

When the days are long and hot, peppermint creates a cooling and refreshing sensation, helping you to work at your best for longer. Alternatively, peppermint is a popular choice for freshening up your morning shower routine. Not only that, but when humidity and temperatures are high, the restorative peppermint aroma offers a refreshing breathing experience, enabling you to breathe deeply with a feeling of freedom.

3. Sandalwood Essential Oil 

Sandalwood possesses soothing properties that can cool the skin after a long day in the sun, reducing inflammation and have a calming effect on the mind and nerves. This is a powerful tool when tempers flare as the temperatures soar. Applying a drop to the top of the head, the temples and pulse points will surround you with a calming fragrance that will have a uplifting effect on everyone that you encounter. 

4. Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender Essential Oil is a beneficial oil year-round. For summer it offers not only calm and cooling effect for our nerves but it also cools the skin and physical body. Getting sunburned during a heat wave is very problematic since it is harder to keep the body cool. Using lavender essential oil in aloe vera gel can cool a sunburn quickly. Cool Lavender baths and chilled lavender compress are helpful practices when the heat is overwhelming or when headaches arise due to excessive heat. Lavender Essential Oil is another great oil to diffuse in your home to create a cooler environment to beat the heat. 

5. Rosemary Essential Oil

When the mercury in your thermometer jumps, the world around you can begin to feel a little fuzzy. Here is where rosemary essential oil comes in. It restores lost focus with its clean, woody & herby aroma. This essential oil can bring the zest even in the hottest summer afternoons. Fill a spray bottle halfway with water, add a few drops of rosemary essential oil and spray it all over to revive and refresh your mood.

Use these essential oils to create a cool ambience inside you and your home and stay fresh and focused all this summer.
