Get up close and personal with mother nature this summer when you head to the great outdoors to camp or hike. Camping and hiking are treasured summer activities, but before you venture off into the woods, make a few preparations beforehand.
While camping and hiking are great ways to get outside and spend time with family these activities are often accompanied by several less pleasant aspects of nature: bug bites, sunburns, aching joints, and poisonous plants. But don’t worry, Davina Wellness has you covered.
For every challenge mother nature throws at you, she’s provided a solution that’s natural, simple, and healthy. By bringing along a few essential oils, you can kiss the pains of hiking goodbye and enjoy your time in the summer sun.
Here are three essential oils to pack before hitting the trail.
Peppermint essential oil will be your best friend when on a hot, difficult trail. Peppermint can help cool you off, help keep your energy levels high, and soothe aches and pains.
You can rub peppermint oil on aching muscles if you start to feel pain while hiking or camping. You can also put it in a spray bottle with a carrier oil and spray it on the back of your neck when the sun gets harsh. Hikers in need of an energy boost can also rub some peppermint oil on their hands and inhale the aroma (just make sure to not touch your eyes, if you do, rinse them with a nut, seed or vegetable oil, and flush with water).
Swat Team Essential Oil Blend
Swat Team artisan essential oil blend is designed with one purpose in mind: to keep bugs off you. Nothing ruins a relaxing nature walk like having to keep an army of mosquitoes at bay. With Swat Team— a natural bug repellant — you don’t have to worry about bug bites, and you can kick those chemical bug sprays to the curb. This natural bug repellent can be purchased online on Davina Wellness Essential Oils’ website.
Swat Team essential oil is ready to go, straight from the bottle. Roll it on any exposed skin where you’re worried about being bitten.
The same soothing agents in lavender essential oil that help you rest easy can also help soothe the irritated skin that often accompanies hiking. Sunburns and chaffing are common when hiking and camping as well, along with inflamed skin due to bug bites or irritating plants. Lavender oil can help soothe the painful, inflamed skin, and let you continue your hike in comfort.
Lavender oil can be used directly on your skin, but if you want your supply to last longer you might consider mixing it with just a little bit of coconut oil. This will help you spread the oil nice and evenly over an affected area.
Let Davina Wellness Essential Oils help you access the healing elements of mother earth as you have the best summer experience you can this year. Don’t let aching joints, hot weather, and the threat of insects slow you down or keep you from exploring!
