What does the summer smell like?
Some people say: "Essential oil cannot be used in summer because it is hot in summer, the essential oil is too oily, and it will be very uncomfortable after using it in summer." But in fact, the essential oil is not the kind of oil you think. I like summer because it is warm and unrestrained, but sometimes the hot temperatures are a bit much. How to calm down your emotions and restore peace to your body and mind. Essential oils are definitely the best choice! These are the six best essential oils for summer:
1. Lavender essential oil
The history of lavender essential oil can be traced back to the Roman period. In addition to its well-known sleeping effect, it also has the effect of calming emotions and treating sunburned skin. It is a unilateral essential oil, especially suitable for summer.
To treat insomnia, drop 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow before going to bed, or use an essential oil diffuser next to your bed to help improve sleep quality.
Soothing emotions: When resting, add an appropriate amount of water to the aromatherapy machine and drop 2 drops of lavender essential oil and 2 drops of sandalwood essential oil, so that the smell of the essential oil slowly evaporates into every corner of the house, and at the same time, you can listen to light music or do some exercise like yoga to relax.
To treat sunburn: Add 2 drops of lavender essential oil to ice milk, soak the mask paper, and apply it to the face for about 20 minutes. Sunburned skin will have a noticeable burning sensation, and if you don't take care of your skin at this time, it may cause permanent skin damage.
Homemade essential oil mask: 30ml of aloe vera gel + 10 drops of Sweet Almond Oil+ 3 drops of lavender essential oil, stirred together to become milky white. Apply it every night before going to bed, and after a week, you will notice that your skin becomes smoother and more radiant.
Rich in vitamins, Sweet Almond Oil is an excellent all-natural moisturizer and is widely used in hair care products to help repair and condition, as well as in body lotions or as a massage oil. Sweet almond oil has soothing properties and can be used to dilute essential oils.
