It’s getting hotter and hotter here in Manila, ladies and gentlemen!
And when it’s hot, we get cranky, uncomfortable and easily annoyed.
Being pregnant isn’t helping, too!
So it’s time to once again to look at our fragrances and essential oils and create our own sprays for cooling down!
This will be of great help when you’re traveling to the beach or even just lounging around and feeling the unusual heat this summer.
Originally formulated for celebrity couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia’s wedding, this cooling spray was eventually dropped in favor of the more simple and recognizable lavender mist for the guests in their beach wedding.
BUT I just feel it’s too good to keep to ourselves! And yes, this is preggy-safe too! My bottle of this concoction is in my bag ALL THE TIME!
If you’re one of those who want to cool off your body or face while walking in the sun, in the middle of an activity (like our company’s outing today!), want a quick refresher or want to uplift your mood in this scorching hot weather, read on!
This spray uses only mainly natural ingredients
that moisturize and keep your skin cool.
Here’s what you’ll need:
100ml Spritz Bottle
20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
15 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
10 drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil
2 drops Orange Blossom & Jasmine Fragrance (to improve the scent)
Half teaspoon or 3ml Aloe Vera Gel
1ml Rosehip Oil
1ml Grapeseed Oil
30ml Sugarcane Ethyl Alcohol
60ml Distilled Water
1. Pour alcohol in spritz bottle
2. Add all essential oils including Rosehip Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Aloe Vera Gel.
3. Pour water
4. Shake or stir until well mixed and blended. I added a little bit of red food coloring to add color to my spray.
5. Spray on face, arms and legs as needed to help cool down in hot weather.
Precaution in using this product:
Don’t spray this on your eyes!!!
For one, it has alcohol and two, the cool properties of peppermint and rosemary may actually feel hot on your eyes.
If you accidentally spray on your eyes, pour MILK on your eyes. Never water!

This is great for your skin and it’s anti-inflammatory so this is a really great ingredient that you can put in to most of your sprays.
