S and I are packing for a few week end adventures. Since we are going to be spending a lot of time outdoors (and I like to be prepared) I’m putting my natural toolkit together. Thought I would share one of my favourites.
While sunburn prevention + smart sun exposure is always the first priority (see my previous blog post on sun exposure + what’s lurking in your sunscreen) this via the link in my bio), this nourishing + cooling “after sun care“ spray is still wonderful to have on hand if you are going to be spending your days out in the sunshine (and yes, it’s also great for those “whoops-I stayed-our-too-long-“ situations that can arise. :
☀️Peppermint is a cooling + refreshing oil that also has anti-inflammatory + analgesic qualities.
☀️Lavender is the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils. It’s great for all things calming + soothing. It is wonderful for first aid to support healing of the skin + maintain healthy tissue.
☀️Frankincense: “The King of Oils” and all things skin. Supports cellular health + reduces inflammation + restores the skin.
☀️Helichrysum: Is known as, “Liquid Bandaid” because it its ability to regenerate tissue + reduce scarring.
☀️ Blue Tansy is phenomenal for inflamed, angry skin. It’s being spotlighted in high end skincare regimens due to it’s affinity for the skin.
☀️Rose “The Queen” An Essential part of any skin regime that aims to maintain skin integrity.
