Feature Article...

5 Ways to Stay Refreshed Using Essential Oils

We have had some hot weather lately. For my friends in the Northern Hemisphere, keep this article for reference in the near future :)

Try our simple suggestions to put your oils to a few different uses this summer.

  1. Icy-cool. For a refreshing touch, add freshly picked spearmint leaves and a drop of spearmint essential oil to your ice cube trays before filling with water. Once frozen, add to your jug of water. for an extra special touch, add slices of lime to the jug.
  2. Fresh Fridge. There is nothing worse than a fridge that smells "on the nose." Whow wants to be putting their fresh food in something that smells like that? To keep foul odours and germs at bay, add five drops of Citrus Fresh essential oil blend to a clean, damp cloth and wipe over the inside of your fridge. Once clean, add a few drops of Citrus Fresh to a cotton ball. Put this at the back of your fridge and voila! No more nasty smells.
  3. Cold Compress. Feeling a little hot and bothered? If the summer heat gets all too much, try this clever tip. Fill a large, clean bowl with water and add two to three drops of peppermint essential oil. Use you hands to disturb the water, alling the oil to disperse. Grab a clean washer and immerse it into the bowl. Once completely saturated, wring out any excess, fold the washer in half, and roll into a long cylinder shape. Put this in your freezer and allow to cool. When you feel flustered, get the cool washer from your freezer, unroll, and apply to your forehead, neck, chest, or whereever you require--just be sure to avoid your eyes! keep multiple peppermint washers in your freezer to stay one up on the summer heat.
  4. Water with a Difference. Keeping hydrated is very important any time of the year, but it is even more crucial in summer when temperatures often rise over 30 degrees Celsius (86F). If you know you should be drinking more warr but find it difficult due to its lack of flavour, try the following tip. Keep your water in a large glass jug in the fridge--try to drink it all every day. To the jug, add four to five drops of your favourite citrus oil, like lemon, orange, grapefruit or tangerine essential oil, and stir. To enhane the flavour even further, add a few slices of orange and lemon to the jug. This water is packed full of antioxidants and tastes so goo that you'll easily get through the whole jug!(
  5. Ning Xia Red Iceblocks. If you have kids, you'll know one thing they always want in summer is a nice cold ice block. With all the artificial colours, flavours, preservatives and sugar packed into food these days, many parents are growing wary of waht they give to their children. For a healthy and yummy alternative, try freezing some Ning Xia Red Singles--they make perfect iceblocks! They are also fantastic additions to lunchboxes, helping keep food cool and fresh as well as providing a refreshing lunchtime energy boost. (If you never have tried Ning Xia Red before, it is AMAZING. A puree of Ning Xia wolfberry, apricot, pomegranate, blueberry, dark grape with immune boosting lemon and orange essential oil).

Spearmint: Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Of the Month


For me, Spearmint is an underated essential oil. It is such a versatile and beautiful smelling oil. We know peppermint and spearmint are closely related and from the same genus (Mentha). Spearmint seems to have a much more gentle effect, almost calming. It has a minty fragrance with a slightly fruity scent.

The Essential Oils Desk Reference states that "Spearmint increases metabolism, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, gall bladder stimulant, digestive aid."

Botanical Name:

Mentha spicata


Do not use on children younger than 5 years. Could possibly result in skin irritation (dilution may be necessary).


Carolyn L. Mein's Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils is a great reference for emotions. Spearmint helps support:

  • Opening and releasing of emotions.
  • Bringing about feelings of balance and sense of wellbeing.
  • Uplifting one's spirit.

Spearmint essential oil may balance and increase metabolism, which may help burn fats and toxins in the body. I like to add a drop of spearmint to a glass of water, or use the recipe above for a refreshing drink on a hot day.

Spearmint makes a wonderful top note addition to essential oil perfume. It seems to have the minty/fruity undertones which combine so well with other essential oils. Try combinations of Spearmint with basil, lavender, peppermint and rosemary. Experiment a little with spearmint and you will notice amazing frangrances!
