Summer is easily the most awaited season of the year because it signifies manifestation and complete expression – nature is in her full bloom, and the dullness and lethargy of winter is wiped away by the brilliant rays of the sun. Indeed, there is so much you can do and achieve when the weather is on your side! Summer inspires you to channel your energies and turn your thoughts into action
. It is the time when your body, mind, heart and spirit are energized and motivated to the highest degree. It is also the perfect season for sports and outdoor activities. However, even when you are all charged-up and enthusiastic to get things done, it is important to protect yourself from the heat and keep yourself cool and refreshed so that you don’t lose focus. To help you make the most of this delightful season, Aromandina has introduced a brand new Summer Blend
as part of our Aromatherapy For The Seasons Series
. An invigorating mix of Spearmint and Lemongrass essential oils, the Aromandina Summer Essential Oil Blend
is just what you need to keep yourself in top shape when the mercury rises. Spearmint
has natural cooling properties that help you stay calm and keep “hot” emotions like anger frustration and irritability at bay. It also enhances alertness and concentration, especially when the heat begins to get to you. Lemongrass
has a refreshing scent that acts as a stimulant for the entire body, keeping you energetic and active all day long. It also promotes mental clarity and balance. Lemongrass is also known to possess antimicrobial and antifungal properties, which make it an excellent skin tonic and natural deodorant for hot summer months. There are several ways to use this amazing blend on a day to day basis:
This summer, keep your mind free of useless thoughts and revel in the breeze of coolness that the Aromandina Summer Essential Oil Blend brings.
- After a long tiring day outdoors, pour 5 drops of this blend into a bowl full of iced water, dunk a towel in it, wring it out and wipe your skin with it.
- If you are going to work or play outdoors for a prolonged period, simply wrap the wet towel around your neck to regulate your body temperature and prevent exhaustion and heat strokes!
Looking forward to summer, are we?
