4 Essential Oils for Summer time

4 Essential Oils for Summer time

Summer has officially arrived.  June is a wonderful month for enjoying the longest days of the year and making the most of the beautiful sunshine.
We’ve picked some of our favourite oils to use during the warmer months.  Essential oils can prove really useful in the summer - from helping repel insects, soothing sunburn to helping energise you on those extra hot and muggy days.

(1) Peppermint

If you need cooling down this summer, Peppermint oil may offer the quick refresh you’re looking for. One of the most invigorating oils; its fresh and cooling scent can help clear the mind and refresh the senses. It is a powerful oil, so only use a small amount.

Try adding 10-15 drops in 100ml of distilled water for a cooling body spray (make sure you avoid the eyes)

(2) Lavender

A great addition to the first aid kit if you’re out on a day trip or off on holiday this year. Lavender is an all-rounder; useful for helping soothe all sorts of skin irritations, from insect bites to sunburn. It can also help you relax – useful for nervous flyers travelling abroad this summer.


Our Lavender roll on is a really handy way of getting the benefits of this wonderful oil. It is diluted in grapeseed oil, so ready to use on the skin.


(3) Geranium

Geranium can be found in natural mosquito repellents and is often used to help repel insects in the warmer months. It’s a lovely uplifting blend and its sweet and floral aroma is certainly one to be enjoyed during the summer months.

Try diffusing – 3 drops Lavender, 2 drops Geranium and 1 drop of Patchouli for a floral, summertime blend.

(4) Grapefruit

Bright and cheerful, this sweet citrus oil is a lovely aroma to enjoy during the summer. Grapefruit is also renowned for being an energising oil; this can be helpful on those seriously hot, muggy days which can make us feel tired and lethargic (or if you’ve just got back from a festival, it can help give you a pick me up). 


Try adding a few drops to the bottom of your shower and allow its uplifting and refreshing aroma to help wake you up in the morning.
