Ireland isn’t well known for hot summers, but it hasn’t been too bad in the last couple of years. But as we all know, we don’t need a heatwave to cause sunburn and skin damage. We also don’t need scorching sun to be plagued by flies and creepy crawlies. (The spiders are getting bigger every year!) Here’s how I use my essential oils to deal with this.
The essential oils that I wouldn’t be without during the summer months are; lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), eucalyptus smithii (Eucalyptus smithii), peppermint (Mentha piperita) and patchouli (Pogostemon cablin).
