DIY Refreshing Cooling Spray

Are you looking to Refresh and Cool Down?
As much as we enjoy the warm weather, the summer heat can leave your skin feeling sticking, dry and hot. This summer has started out especially hot in many states in the US. For a refreshing pick me up during the day, give this recipe a try. It is awesome to carry around with you, and mist lightly to cool and refresh your skin anytime. This spray can be used on your face, arms, and on the soles of your feet, whenever you’re feeling uncomfortably toasty.

Refreshing Cooling Spray
  • 3 T. Aloe Vera Gel
  • 3 T. Witch Hazel
  • 3 T. Cranberry Juice
  • 2 T. of Distilled Water
  • 1 T. Vegetable Glycerin
  • 2-3 Drops of Tangerine Essential Oil
  • 1 Drop of Ginger Essential Oil
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and mix well. Pour into a mist sprayer bottle and shake well before each use. Store in a cool, dark place.
Aloe Vera Gel is rich in antioxidants, to help soothe skin and fight sun damage.
Witch Hazel to support your skin’s natural protection against drying elements.
Cranberry Juice contains a lot of vitamins and minerals which are good for your skin.  It’s like a fruit cocktail for the skin, refreshing, healthy and perfect for the summertime.
Vegetable Glycerin is good for your skin because it has strong humectant properties, meaning it is able to retain and bring moisture to your skin.
Tangerine and Ginger Essential Oil aromatherapy blend is sure to stimulate your mind, body, and spirit and naturally change your mood.
Love IT! This natural homemade “Refreshing Cooling Spray” feels so good cooling on my skin and the kids like it too.
I’d love to keep in touch. ;o)
