We spend more time outside summer, go from one pool to an other and these conditions may leave their mark on our skin.
Sun exposure can cause damage to the skin, and it will need special care to restore the moisture content of it. No problem, choose from our Aroma sense products and heal yourself.
Mix 3-3 drops of Geranium and Grapefruit oil with a tablespoon of Jojoba oil and enrich Aroma Sense Vitamin E+F repair silky cream or Hyaluron Hydro Booster gel with it. Regular use of the blend will restore the healthy moisture content of the skin.
When spending more time outside, the other common problem summertime is insect bites. Wasps injects alkaline venom to the skin, so it needs to be neutralised with acid. The best option is apple cider vinegar, which you can apply to the skin area until the pain and swelling starts to go down. To prevent infection add a drop of lavender or tea tree oil to a tablespoon of vinegar. Bee stings are different, the main step is removing the sting from the skin, if it remained inside. Be sure to do this with tweezers. Next apply a mixture of teaspoon of baking soda, and water and a drop of lavender oil and apply it to the affected area.
Mosquito bites are the most common bug bites summertime, but we have a solution for them, too. For a quick and easy soothing bug bite roll-on mix 5 drops of peppermint oil with 3 drops of lavender oil and a drop of tea tree oil with 1 tablespoon of carrier oil in a glass rollerball bottle. Shake well before use. For a bug bite relief balm take a tablespoon of Original Aloe Vera gel and mix with 10-10 drops of lavender and peppermint oil and a tablespoon of carrier oil. Peppermint oil can be replaced with Eucalyptus essential oil. To reduce redness and soothe itchiness beside antiseptic properties use geranium oil.
Important, that only lavender oil can be applied directly onto the skin, others need a carrier oil. If you are new to the world of essentail oils, better to prepare a patch test before using them frequently. It is advised to consult with a doctor or specialist, too.
