Spray this herbal mist on your face and body for a cooling effect, along with the aromatherapy benefits. Peppermint is good for headaches and to refresh and enliven the mind, while eucalyptus is cooling, soothing, and can help with respiratory congestion, coughs, and sinus pressure.
Lavender After Sun Soother
• 4oz Mister Bottle
• 40 drops Lavender Essential Oil
• Pure Spring Water
Lavender is not only nice smelling, but can help to heal and soothe the skin if you’ve gotten too much sun. This herbal mist is also helpful for itching, rashes, and other inflamed skin conditions, as well as relieving stress and headaches.
Wintergreen Pain Relief Mist
Wintergreen and peppermint combine to help soothe pain, and can be sprayed directly on closed skin injuries such as sprains, strains, and bruises. The active ingredient in wintergreen oil is salicylic acid, what scientists use to synthesize aspirin. Wintergreen and peppermint are also very cooling, it would make a great herbal mist to take with you on a hike or out running in case you need to cool down and soothe a pulled muscle or other minor injury.
Headache Relieving Mist
Added to the combination is rosemary, which helps to relax circulation making it great for tension headaches and migraines as well. Rosemary also helps to stimulate memory and clear the mind. This herbal mist blend is stimulating to the mind, while soothing to the emotions and body, making it a good study aid and helpful at work to remain focused.
Once you get started with aromatherapy and find the many benefits of essential oils, you might start using them in many applications. Just remember, you have to dilute essential oils for safety, this means in water or in a carrier oil if applying directly to the skin.
Also, be aware that some essential oils are photoreactive, and should not be used if you are going out in the sun. All of the herbal mist recipes in this article are safe and beneficial to use in the sun or after.
Aromatherapy with essential oils is a great way to balance body and mind, and in the summer, the use of cooling, refreshing herbal mist formulas can be a life saver. I love to carry at least one mist with me for when I need a lift or a little cool comfort.
