Even those that look forward to the first day of school are a little reluctant to give up the freedom of mellow mornings, adventures days and late nights. I’m not in school right now and even I get a little sad feeling the change in the air that always corresponds with the start of classes. To beat these blues, I’ve been misting myself with hydrosols and spritzers that have been energizing and uplifting. An added benefit are the essential oils that increase memory and circulation and a little lavender to calm the back to school jitters. I hope this helps you as much as it has me!
No More Summer Blues Sprays

3 drops Mandarin essential oil (regulates energy and digestion)
3 drops Rosemary essential oil (improves circulation and memory)
3 drops Lavender essential oil (relaxes nervous system)
2 ounces Spring water
Put spring water into a glass spray bottle (use a fun colored glass to improve your mood even more!)
Add essential oils, one at a time and blend thoroughly. Spray on your face, neck and heart area as needed throughout the day.
As always, use herbs and essential oils that are certified organic and/or sustainably harvested and oils that not extracted with hazardous solvents.
