Essential Oil Essentials +The Mid-Year Sale! Posted on 07 Jul 14:12
So it’s hot out. Middle-of-summer hot. The kind of hot that we all wait for and then complain about once it arrives (as we scurry in sweaty masses to air-conditioned havens). Now, that’s a funny visual and may be a bit more true for us here in Arizona than in other parts of the nation, but the fact remains that heat can take its toll on a person. If you’re not careful, it can be very easy to become dehydrated, drained of energy, and even experience light-headedness or nausea as a result!
SO! Be sure to drink plenty of water (like, a lot!) and practice intentional awareness on the state of your physical body. When you feel the energy reserves beginning to dip, that’s your cue to refill that glass of water and maybe even get some good plant energy in you as well!
Another great way to spend the high heat of these summer months is in the company of refreshing scents! In fact, we’ve got our MID-YEAR SALE coming up here for a short stretch of THREE DAYS ONLY, so this is the PERFECT time to stock up on the year-round essentials! Let’s take a moment to review some of our absolute favorite must-haves.
ESSENTIAL OIL ESSENTIALS
- CITRONELLA -
A summertime favorite, this essential oil not only smells delicious and familiar, it ALSO acts as a natural repellent for mosquitoes!

This is your secret weapon essential oil.
