Enjoy Summer More with These 10 Tips!
1. Get Outside!
Enjoy the outdoors. Take a walk in the woods, in nature. See what it offers and take in the serenity. It’s a meditation in itself.
2. Get Some Vitamin D!
Be smart. Enjoy the sun before 11am and after 4pm. 11-4 is peak time for UVA/UVB rays and a chance of sunburn. Choose a natural sunscreen with zinc oxide for a good barrier. Don’t forget your sunglasses & a hat for added protection.
3. Got Burnt?
Essential oil of Lavender will take down a burn quickly. Aloe gel will help nourish & soothe. NewCo Broccogen Sulphoraphane Lotion ointment & lotion will help repair.
4. Over did it?
Too much activity? Keep yourself hydrated. Make sure you keep a water bottle handy and add some electrolytes! Ener-C comes in handy packets and has added nutrients & vitamins.
5. Got Scraped or Scratched?
Tea tree oil is great for minor cuts & scrapes. Keep some on hand!
6. Up at Dawn & Out at Dusk?
Pesky mosquitos! Wear light coloured clothing and try the new safe, effective internal homeopathic mosquito repellent Mozi-Q. Safe for children & pets! Works for after bite too.
7. BBQ didn’t go down too well?
Try some digestive aids or some fermented products like Molkosan or kombucha. Keep your digestive system on track!
8. Rainy day?
Don’t despair! Curl up with a good book or take a walk in the rain.
9. Too Hot?
Cool off with a few drops of peppermint essential oil in a spritzer bottle. Better yet put some in a bucket of cold water and stick your feet in. It will bring down your body temperature.
10. No holiday Plans?
Make sure you schedule some down time for yourself. Summer is fleeting!
