Essential Oils for Summer
Summer is a season of bright, uplifting scents that invigorate and refresh. Here are some essential oils that are perfect for the summer months:

  • Citrus Oils (e.g., Lemon, Orange, Tangerine) : These oils are uplifting and energizing, helping to boost mood and energy levels.

  • Lavender : Known for its calming properties, lavender can help soothe the mind and body after a long day in the sun.

  • Peppermint : A cooling oil that can provide relief from the heat and invigorate the senses.

Blending Tips
Creating your own summer blends can be a fun and therapeutic activity. Here are a few blending ideas:

  • Uplifting Blend : Combine lemon, tangerine, and peppermint for a refreshing and energizing scent.

  • Bug Repellent Blend : Blend citronella, rosemary, and eucalyptus to keep bugs at bay while enjoying the outdoors.

Summer Candle Scents

  • Pot of Herbs: This ceramic garden candle is perfect for summer evenings. It smells like Mediterranean holidays and acts as a natural bug repellent. The essential oil blend of citronella, rosemary, and marjoram creates a delightful aroma. Once the candle has finished, you can reuse the pot as a plant pot.

  • SOL: Our sunshine yellow coffee tumbler candle is scented like fresh orange juice, featuring a bespoke essential oil blend of tangerine and sweet orange. This scent is perfect for brightening up your day.

  • AQUA: The mint blue coffee tumbler candle smells like a spearmint lagoon, with a bespoke blend of sage, grapefruit, and spearmint essential oils. It's refreshing and invigorating, ideal for hot summer days.

"Rest when you're weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work."

Aromatherapy Recipes

Here are some simple recipes to create your own summer aromatherapy blends:

  • Cooling Spray : Mix 10 drops of peppermint essential oil with 4 ounces of distilled water in a spray bottle. Use this spray to cool down on hot days.

  • Summer Diffuser Blend : Combine 3 drops of lemon, 2 drops of lavender, and 2 drops of peppermint in your diffuser for a refreshing and uplifting aroma.

Home Spa Ideas

Transform your home into a spa with these simple ideas:

  • Aromatherapy Bath : Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to a warm bath. Lavender and chamomile are great for relaxation, while peppermint and eucalyptus can invigorate your senses.

  • Face Steam : Add a few drops of essential oils to a bowl of hot water. Lean over the bowl with a towel over your head to trap the steam. This is great for opening pores and enjoying the therapeutic benefits of the oils.

Summer Strawberry Salad by Occasionally Eggs:

This summer strawberry salad is packed with the best of the season - early summer berries, fresh greens, herbs, and flowers. It's spring in a bowl, with lentils and a sweet strawberry vinaigrette.


  • Lettuce : a mix of green and red if you have it – any kinds of you like. I prefer ‘salad bowl’ and that’s primarily what we grow.
  • Lentils : brown or French lentils are great, as are black. I don’t recommend red lentils. Chickpeas and white beans are good substitutions for lentils.
  • Pea shoots : or sunflower shoots, or sprouts, whatever kind of sprout or shoot you like. These can be omit... 

Daily Wellness Routines

Incorporate these daily routines to embrace summer wellness:

  • Morning Rituals : Start your day with a refreshing shower using citrus-scented products, followed by a few minutes of stretching or yoga.

  • Midday Breaks : Take a break during the hottest part of the day to rest and hydrate. Use a cooling spray or mist to refresh your skin.

  • Evening Wind-Down : Light a candle and spend some quiet time reflecting on your day or practicing meditation before bed.

Outdoor Activities

Enjoy the beauty of summer with these outdoor activities:

  • Yoga in the Park : Find a quiet spot in a local park and practice yoga surrounded by nature.

  • Nature Walks : Explore local trails and parks, taking in the sights, sounds, and scents of summer.

  • Beach Meditations : If you live near the coast, spend time meditating by the sea. The sound of the waves can be incredibly soothing.

Summer Meditation Guide

Here's a guided meditation script for summer relaxation:

  1. Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down.

  2. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth.

  3. Visualize yourself in a beautiful summer garden. Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and the gentle breeze.

  4. Imagine the scents of the garden, like fresh flowers and herbs. Breathe in these scents deeply.

  5. As you continue to breathe, let go of any stress or tension. Focus on the present moment and the peacefulness of the garden.

  6. Spend a few minutes in this state of relaxation, then slowly bring your awareness back to your surroundings and open your eyes.

Sustainable Living
