 Never under estimate Rosemary.  It is the #1 oil for memory and remembrance, works to clear chest issues, repels spiders and other insects, hair regrowth. Assists the immune system to be strong, and just smells GREAT! If you have some fresh Rosemary near by, cut and throw some branches in an open fire.  Put a drop of the essential oil in a cup of water for a delicious Rosemary tea. The scent of Rosemary assists the sinus cavities to open. I love this herb more and more each time I use it or talk about it.  You will too!

Summer Skin Spray

Summer Skin Spray takes the scorch out of summer. Hydrate and heal after your days in the sun in one easy step with a quick spray of my favorite anti-aging essential oils.

So what is this essential oil combination?  Frankincense, Cypress and Lavender! Your sun drenched skin will indeed benefit from their anti-inflammatory, regenerative, firming and soothing properties.
Go here for a free recipe for Sunburn Spray > > >

  1. Add essential oils to an empty glass bottle, top with Distilled water. Topical application to body and face, even scrapes or blemishes as needed.
  2. Note: serves nicely as a deodorant alternative too!
  3. Distilled water: Any time you make your own moisturizers, added water is a breeding ground for microorganisms. Untreated tap water contains contaminants and microscopic organisms from the tap that you don’t want sitting in your homemade moisturizer, causing it to spoil sooner. Using distilled or filtered water (from a quality filtering system) ensures that you’re not introducing any new contaminants.
