There are so many ways to incorporate essential oils into helpful recipes we can easily make at home.
Today, we’ll be making a cooling spray recipe with essential oils. This essential oil spray provides a cooling sensation for quick and on-the-go soothing of hot flashes that naturally occur with age. You can also add this cooling relief spray to your pre-and post-workout routine to soothe muscles and always be on top of your game.
What I Love About This Cooling Spray Recipe
The amazing aroma of this recipe is so soothing! The aroma relaxes me as I try to sooth natural hot flashes and some body tensions.
What’s in This Pain Relief Spray Recipe?
You might already know about how soothing Aloe Vera is for sunburn. That cooling property of aloe vera is also great in easing naturally occurring hot flashes associated with aging. It also dilutes the essential oils in this recipe so it’s safe for the skin.
Ladies’ Choice Essential Oil Blend
Infused with Clary Sage, Marjoram, Geranium, and Lavender Essential Oils, Ladies Choice Essential Oil Blend is formulated to soothe naturally occurring symptoms related to PMS including hot flashes. Plus, it has a calming, herbal, floral aroma that you will love.
Spearmint Essential Oil
According to a study, Spearmint Essential Oil may be a natural analgesic1 that can be used to soothe headaches and other body pains. Try using this oil to help soothe tension. Its sweet, minty aroma will help wake you up and feel your best.
The base of this recipe is distilled water. Since oil and water don’t mix, it is advisable to shake the recipe well before use. You can also use a natural solubilizer to evenly disperse the oil in the water.
Geogard Ect Preservative (Optional)
Water-based mixtures like this recipe must use a natural preservative like Geogard ECT Preservative to extend their shelf life. You can skip this ingredient if you will use the recipe immediately, and prepare it in a sanitary environment.
Geogard is best measured with a precise kitchen scale.
Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly.
