Essential Scents for Summer

Essential Scents for Summer

Fresh and fragrant, essential oils not only offer an array of health benefits, they also have specific seasonal uses. Here are our picks for the top summer scents:

Lavender
Is the most versatile multi-tasker of essential oils and can be used as a sleep aid with just a drop or two on your pillow on restless hot summer nights. It also serves as an antibacterial for wounds, burns and insect bites; as a muscle relaxant and pain reliever; and can eliminate sweat odours in shoes, underarms and anywhere you need to refresh!

Basil
Not only smells delicious like a fragrant herb garden, but can improve focus and attention span, keeping you awake on sleepy summer days. Just a sniff restores and refreshes mental acuity! 

Peppermint
Need a little help getting beach body ready?! A sniff of peppermint can cure hunger cravings and can be applied to your abdomen to assist digestion and alleviate bloating. It's heavenly for sleep and relaxation in a diffuser. Apply on the back of your neck to instantly cool off, repel bugs, and ease itching. 

Sandalwood
Reminiscent of summer and such a delightful scent all year long. Sandalwood can soothe the skin after sunburn and reduce puffiness. When inhaled, it relaxes your lungs and helps you breathe deep.

Grapefruit
Grapefruit oil is a powerful antioxidant, helps relieve water retention and metabolize fats.

Chamomile
With its cooling and anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, and relaxing properties, chamomile oil is calming and also known to fight allergies.
