Summer is right around the corner and I, for one, am thrilled. I wouldn’t say summer is my favorite season (I’m a fall girl), but I understand its appeal a lot more since my son was born. My boy needs to run and jump and be crazy – and he needs to do all that outside and not in my house where he’ll break something. So these days I welcome the lovely weather and the long days full of sunlight (and the long nights full of sleep because he’s plumb tuckered out!).
A lot of people are thinking about essential oils in the winter and how to use them to improve their wellness during that time of year. But don’t forget to get oily in the summer too! All of the essential oils mentioned below will help you love this summer a little bit more. Whether it’s because you won’t be dealing with outside annoyances, your skin will be happy, or everyone’s emotions will be dealt with, there’s an essential oil in this list for you to try this summer.
NOTE: Don’t forget that citrus essential oils are photosensitive and could cause skin irritation if applied right before sun exposure. So, if you’re headed out in the sun, make sure to apply citrus essential oils (and blends that contain citrus essential oils) only to covered areas of your body.
