My favorite part of Summer as a kid was our family vacation at the beach. 
I remember the hot sun on my skin and loved jumping and playing in the ocean to cool off.
I also remember my mom bringing with her an Evian spray brumisateur along with towels, snacks and sandwiches, books, crossword puzzles, bandaids, sunscreen lotion... you get the picture. 
She was definitely prepared for anything. 
Of everything in her bag I really loved the Evian spray water. I felt so refreshing and cooling, I loved it on my face and arms, it was like entering a soft cooling cloud.

I am no longer a kid but I still like the sensation of a refreshing spray of water during hot summer days and while the Evian "brumisateur" is great, I also love making my own.
It is so easy to do and I add a few drops of essential oils to make it even more refreshing!

The 1st thing you need is a spray bottle. 
I would recommend using either a glass bottle (amber or blue) or a plastic container, specifically PET, that is known to store oil products without a problem.
You will also need distilled water and essential oils of your choice.

Here are 3 of my favorite cooling recipes that will make you smell like Summer:

Refreshing Cooling Body Spray:

  • 5 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 1 drop Peppermint essential oil
  • 1 cup distilled water.

Shake well and spray freely on body, arms and legs for a nice cooling effect. Due to the Peppermint do not spray on face.

Cooling Spray for Body and Face:

  • 1 drop Rose essential oil
  • 3 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil
  • 5 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 2 ounces distilled water

Shake well, spray as desired.


Lavender Rose Facial Spritz:

  • ¼ Cup Rosewater
  • 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Mix and SPRAY with a smile on your face!


Use all spritzers within a month!! ENJOY!!

Wishing you a refreshing Summer!!
