DIY all natural self-cooling spray – great for festivals, hikes, anything where it’s hot!

This one is great for festivals and other summer outdoor events. The evaporation of the essential oils will provide a nice cooling effect. You can also make this just with peppermint or spearmint essential oil, but the other scents add some joy as well. 

3 oz distilled water
1 ounce witch hazel
10 drops clary sage essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil


Mix witch hazel and essential oils, then top off with water. Put mix in a 4 ounce glass bottle, put the cap on, shake, and spritz away on hot days.
