Summer is here!
Summer sun, outdoor activities and BBQ are on again. All these things make summer an enjoyable time but there are also the little things that can make summer exhausting. In the world of essential oils are some oils that fit perfect into summer and are good companions during the months of heat and long evenings.
For outdoor activities:
The ones of you who like to exercise outdoors or who enjoy long walks know the problem with mosquitos or other little insects. It can be very annoying especially in the evenings. Not only mosquitos but also ticks are a common problem when being active outside. Most of the insect repellent products are helpful for a short amount of time but ineffective over a longer period.
Terra Shield: Is an essential oil blend created by doterra. It contains for example Lemon, Ylang Ylang and Eucalyptus and protects our body from insects and other environmental threats. The usage is easy: the blend is already diluted with fractionated coconut oil. Just put it on exposed parts of the body. Terra Shield is also available as spray for an even easier application.
TriEase: Are small softgels (small and soft capsuels), which contain 3 essential oils: lavender, peppermint and lemon. These 3 oils together help our body to cope with seasonal threats, allergic reactions and allergies.
Lavender Roll On: is a fast help when bitten by mosquitos or ticks. A Roll On allows an easy application. Applied on insect bites it helps to reduce the pain and itch. Additionally lavender has a calming effect on our skin und helps our body to relax. Another positive fact is its smell which is not very obtrusive.
Lavender can also help with sunburn. Just dilute a few drops with a neutral lotion and apply on sunburned areas. It relaxes, takes away pain and speeds up the healing process.
For every day usage:
Peppermint: cools and refreshes. When the summer heat keeps us awake at night and when it is too hot to eat or move peppermint can help. It has a cooling effect on our skin and supplies our body with new energy. Here are some tips for an easy usage:
- put some drops into a glas of water and drink it
- apply some drops onto neck and temples for energy boost
- dilute some drops with water and put it into a spray bottle for a refreshing and cooling application after showering or after exercising
- Peppermint Beadlets can help to cope with tiredness after meals
Citrus Oils: match with hot weather and are good companions during summer.

Lime und Lemon: are both cleansing oils. They refresh and clean our body. Drink some drops diluted in water can help to support our digestive system and to feel awake and fresh. For a nice and fresh summer cocktail put a few drops of lime oil into a jar, mix it with elderflower syrup and spray it up with water. Perfect for serving to BBQs with friends!
Wild Orange and Tangerine: create good mood and support our creativity. These oils are helpful to get through a long day at work.
