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.

Lavender and peppermint essential oils are another great combination for keeping cool in the summer heat. Lavender oil is calming and soothing, while peppermint oil is refreshing and invigorating.

Together, they make a versatile blend that can be used in a diffuser, inhaler, or even as a refreshing body spray. Simply add a few drops of each oil to water in a small spray bottle, and spritz yourself whenever you need a cool pick-me-up.

3. Spearmint and Grapefruit Essential Oil Blend

Spearmint and grapefruit essential oils are also great for keeping cool in the summer heat. Spearmint oil is stimulating and uplifting, while grapefruit oil is refreshing and invigorating.

Together, they make a great diffuser or inhaler blend that will help you stay cool and focused all day long. Add a few drops of each oil to your diffuser or inhaler, and enjoy the benefits whenever you need them.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cooling Spray with Essential Oils

What is cooling spray?

Cooling spray is a type of spray that is designed to cool and soothe the skin. It is typically used to relieve pain, inflammation, sunburns, insect bites, and other skin irritations. The spray is also helpful to use on hot days, or when hot flashes come on.

How do you store an essential oil cooling spray?

An essential oil cooling spray should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. It is best to store it in a dark glass bottle with a tight-fitting cap to prevent oxidation and evaporation of the essential oils. It should also be kept out of reach of children and pets.

Can I use spearmint instead of peppermint for cooling spray?

Yes, you can use spearmint instead of peppermint for cooling from heat. Both types of mint contain menthol, which provides a cooling sensation. However, peppermint is generally considered to be stronger and more potent than spearmint, so you may need to adjust the drops of spearmint to achieve the same level of cooling.

Final Thoughts on Cooing Essential Oils

There's nothing worse than feeling hot and sticky on a scorching summer day. But with these cooling essential oil blends at your disposal, you'll be able to stay cool all day long! Whether you use them in a diffuser, inhaler, or body spray, these cooling essential oils will help you beat the heat so you can enjoy every minute of summertime fun.
