Must–Have Summer Essential Oils
Memorial Day weekend is behind us and we’re now officially heading full force into summer. The trees and flora are coming into full bloom around us and everything feels new and fresh. As beautiful and invigorating as all of this is, it is also accompanied by some less favorable summer friends like allergies and mosquitos. Traditionally, we combat allergies and bugs with over the counter medications or bug sprays, both of which can be quite toxic to the body, particularly when used repeatedly throughout the season. An awesome natural alternative lies in the option of essential oils. As we continue into the summer season, we want to highlight two must-have essential oils.
Natural Seasonal Support: Tri-Ease Softgels
Tri-Ease is a blend of three popular and widely used oils – lemon, lavender and peppermint. It was developed to protect against seasonal and environmental elements, as well promoting a healthy respiratory system. This blend is now available in a convenient softgel that can be safely taken on a daily basis during times of seasonal discomfort without the drugged feeling. It’s also great diffused. The benefits of the oils in this blend are:
- Lemon: cleansing to the body’s systems and frequently used for respiratory discomfort
- Lavender: known for its calming and balancing effects
- Peppermint: promotes clear breathing and healthy respiratory function
Natural Bug Spray: TerraShield
TerraShield is a natural alternative to bug sprays for outdoor nuisances. It is available in both an oil or a spray and can be used safely by the whole family. It is a mixture of oils including ylang ylang, cedarwood, catnip, eucalyptus, litsea, arborvitae, nootka and vanilla bean absolute. This blend effectively keeps those pesky bugs away without exposure to chemicals found in traditional bug sprays or smelling like bug spray. It can be applied directly on the skin and smells great!
We are so excited that summer is here and hope that these natural solutions will help you thrive as well! Pick up both of these blends in the clinic, whether or not you are currently patient with us. Check out our hours and stop in!
