A day out in the sun playing and having fun is my idea of a perfect summer day. Out in the pool, at the beach, cooking out, playing toss games, reading in a hammock, it doesn’t matter. It’s going to be hot. It’s going to be sunny. It’s going to have water and cold things.
It’s so easy to get though in the course of enjoy those fun summer outdoor things to take in too much sun and scorch our skin so it is pink, red and tender at the end of the day. These situations can ruin the next day if you’re not careful. Hopefully you’ve applied and reapplied regularly an all natural sunscreen (check out my post on July 3 providing you lots of ways to make your own and enjoy all natural SPF protection).
We spend a lot of time outside in the summer. We’re in our pool, going camping, the beach and more. Yes it’s hot but that’s not stopping us from enjoying the fun that can be had by being outside this time of year. Sometimes we can over do it. Sometimes we need to pause to take care of our overdoing it.
Still Got Pink Skin
Even with sunscreen though some of us can become sunburned. This skin irritation is painful and can make for an uneasy evening’s rest. Applying doTERRA Lavender with fractionated coconut oil (the doTERRA Lavender Touch) to the skin feels divine.
Depending on the severity you can also mix in a misting spray bottle of 4 ounces add in a 10 drops of doTERRA Peppermint with 15 drops doTERRA Lavender and fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil and water into a mist bottle to spray on the skin (approximately half water and half coconut oil).
The Peppermint oil is a natural cooling oil that can provide relief while the Lavender works to soothe and heal the skin quickly.
I love going barefoot. The feel of cool grass on my feet, warm sands and refreshing water is relaxing, freeing and fun. I love that feeling from the bottoms of my feet. As much as I love being barefoot I also realize how harsh that can be on my feet causing the rough spots, dryness and cracking.
To keep my heels from cracking or my feet bottoms from looking and feeling tore up I frequently apply a mix of essentials oil and natural lotion to my feet. My secret is 1 drop doTERRA Peppermint, 1 drop doTERRA Wild Orange and unscented all natural lotion. It’s relaxing, smells incredible and my feet are very happy.
Incredibly these two oils together create a relaxing experience that is also happily energizing and rejuvenating. What’s better than that for tired feet that have traipsed through the day barefoot?
