Use Essential Oils for Summer Skincare –

Two products that are used heavily in the summer are sunscreen and bug spray.
Two products that are full of toxins are sunscreen and bug spray.
Both contain chemicals that may prove more harmful than the sun and bugs, both. Essential oils are a wonderful way to create safe, healthy and natural products for use on the skin. Many oils are excellent at repelling ticks, mosquitos, bees, biting flies, and can also treat stings and bites if they occur. The most common ones are eucalyptus, cedarwood, citronella, lemongrass, pennyroyal, tea tree, geranium, catnip, clove, lavender, thyme, yarrow, rosemary, garlic and peppermint. Neem oil also works great by itself. Oils can be mixed with water, alcohol, witch hazel, or vodka to make a spray, diluted with a carrier oil such as almond oil and rubbed on the body, or simply dabbed on. The possibilities with oils are endless. While oils alone may not prevent a sunburn, they can be used after a burn to soothe and lessen the severity. A simple mixture of lavender, peppermint and water in a spray bottle is a great post-sun spray to soothe sore skin. Simple remedies that are safe for kids and pets.5a04d4a053d3afc2f75030ab0cef395e
