Say hello to summer – bright sunshine, fresh sea breeze, delicious summer snacks. At My Herb Clinic, we love to enjoy summer with a curated selection of essential oil scents. Here are some of the most popular essential oil choices for summer.
What is the best way to use essential oils in summer?
Combining essential oils for summer with a diffuser can be a great way to elevate your summer experience. Whether you’re sunbathing, enjoying BBQ at the park, or just exploring the great outdoors, a few drops of essential oil can help you lift your mood, fight fatigue, and even deter mosquitoes.
Using most of these following essential oils topically is also an option, but you may have to dilute them in a carrier oil. Some oils may also increase the risk of sunburn because they are phototoxic, so always stay informed before you try out a new way to enjoy essential oils!
Zesty, citrus scents are the number one essential oil option for deterring mosquitoes. People use citronella oil as a mosquito repellent. If you prefer a different citric scent, you can also lemon, lemongrass, orange, lime, and even subtropical grapefruit.
An icy peppermint scent is a great way to help you feel cooler on hot summer afternoons. Many people use peppermint essential oils in aromatherapy to reduce pain and stress. This is an essential oil that you may want to try applying topically.
Summer, for all its fun and vacation vibes, can also be stressful. Lavender essential oils blend very well with other scents to create a relaxing effect. Diffuse a few drops of lavender with rosemary and peppermint for a classic sleep-enhancement blend.
Eucalyptus is known for its refreshing aroma. Eucalyptus oil is a popular household product ingredient, as it is used in disinfectants, stain removers, and toilet cleaners. It also serves as an insect repellent. In a similar vein, fragrant eucalyptus essential oils are very popular for those who seek a cleansing, revitalising scent. Our Celestial Lemon Eucalyptus is an especially invigorating eucalyptus scent that is made locally in Australia.
Geraniums are gorgeous flowers that bloom from spring to summer. These pink-to-purple flowers have a rich, rose-like fragrance that draws many to it. If you want a strong essential oil smell that is more unique and uplifting than roses, geranium could be your choice!
