Clean It Up | Summer Fun! Safe Summertime Solutions with Essential Oils

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy…cue cheery music, grab fizzy drink, find patio. Summer is finally here, the days are longer and I am loving being outside as much as possible. As I continue to clean up different areas of my lifestyle, it has been so fun to mix in cleaner and safer products throughout my summer activities.

Recently, I connected with fellow Columbus boss lady, Jodi of Peppermint and Grapefruit. Jodi introduced me to some fun essential oil products, that have really helped serve as solutions for my busy summer of wedding planning! I had been having trouble sleeping (too much mind racing, too much on my to-do list = not enough rest!), so Jodi brought some Serenity Restful Complex Softgels for me to try. Holy guacamole, these magical, safe for you supplements have been a true life saver. I have never experienced such peaceful, and restful sleep. When I wake up after a night of using the Serenity Restful Complex, I truly feel rested and refreshed.

I can’t wait to share more about the other essential oil products Jodi shared with me. But for now, who better to learn about essential oils from than the pro herself? Jodi has put together some fun summertime essential oil receipts for you! From safe bug spray to essential oil infuse ice cubes, this Summertime clean up is one you do not want to miss out on!

Summer Fun! With Simple and Healthy Solutions Using Essential Oils, guest blog post written by Jodi Weaver ofPeppermint and Grapefruit

It’s Summer and It’s time for some Summer Fun!  When you think of Summer you probably think of having fun with your friends at the pool or beach, camping, cook-outs, smores, popsicles and fresh strawberries.  What you probably don’t want to think about is the bugs, too much sun or those really hot days!

Here’s a few simple and healthy solutions from Peppermint and Grapefruit using essential oils to keep your Summer Fun! We have been using essential oils for 5 Summer’s and it is so simple and healthy for our family!

DIY Buzz Off Bug Sprays

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like bugs!!  I don’t leave the house without spraying a healthy dose of my DIY “Do It Yourself” Buzz Off Bugs Spray that I made with approximately 20 drops of Terrashield and some distilled water.  Sometimes, I have also made it with 10 drops of Lemongrass and 10 drops of Peppermint.  Just add the essential oils to an empty spray bottle and top with water.  Shake and spray onto skin and clothing.  Allow to air dry.  Avoid your eyes.  Now you can enjoy that campfire experience and smores without any worries about those pesky bugs!!

Cool off with Fruit Ice Cubes, Popsicles, Lime infused Watermelon & Essential Oils

I also love to add the dōTERRA essential oils to my food and drinks that I enjoy in the SUMMERTIME!  You can make some healthy and refreshing popsicles see the recipe below.  Or add some of these essential oils and fruit to make your water more fun to drink this Summer! Why not? Enjoy and share these safe and natural solutions for summertime treats!
