10 Tips for Using Essential Oils in Hot Weather

1. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids, especially water, when using essential oils in hot weather.

2. Avoid using phototoxic essential oils when out in the sun. Learn more about what essential oils are photosensitive.

3. Use a carrier oil, like jojoba oil, to dilute essential oils before using them in hot weather.

4. Be careful not to overuse essential oils, as this can lead to adverse effects in hot weather.

5. Apply a cold pack or ice pack to the back of your neck or on your forehead to cool down. You can even try homemade aloe vera ice cubes.

6. Be sure to store essential oils in a cool, dark place when not in use.

7. Stay in the shade as much as possible.

8. Carry this homemade cooling mist with you to spray on your skin when you start to feel overheated.

9. Take a cool bath or shower to refresh yourself. Try a spearmint essential oil foot soak.

10. Get plenty of rest, and avoid strenuous activity in the heat.

General Essential Oil Precautions

Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucous membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified practitioner. Keep out of reach from children.

When using essential oils on skin be sure to use only high quality, 100% pure essential oils that are safe to use topically.

Use essential oils with extreme caution on children, be sure you have researched the oil and that it is safe for use on kids. Plant Therapy clearly labels their oils "KidSafe" on the bottle if the oil can be used for children ages 2–10.

If applying an essential oil topically (on your skin), you may perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body, use 1-2 drops in a teaspoon of carrier oil like jojoba oil, read more here.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, epileptic, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. For more information on oil safety issues here.
