How to make your own cooling spray with essential oils
Imagine standing in a 2-hour line to ride the 7 dwarfs mine train in 100F weather. The kids were starting to get a little cranky from the heat of the day and drinking water was just not cutting it. An impulse purchase was the Disney spray bottle with a fan to cool down the kids. They were already loaded with cold water from the vendor. I always carry a mini essential oil travel kit with me for unexpected events such as a cut knee or motion sickness. I have the 10 staple essential oils and a few extra roller bottles so I can really blend and create anything I need with essential oils on the spot. So while we were at Disney, I added a few drops of peppermint essential oil and a little bit of Lavender essential oil to the Disney spray fans to cool us down but also to calm some impatient nerves of the kids while they waited for the ride.
Its really simple to make your own cooling spray with essential oils and I created the above one on the fly but if you want to be a bit more prepared and make your homemade cooling spray with essential oils ahead of time I definitely would recommend using some witch hazel in your cooling spray to help the essential oils mix better. As oil and water don’t mix well at all the witch hazel does help.
Gather the following things to make your own homemade cooling spray with essential oils

How to use a Peppermint cooling spray on your body
When we were at Disney my kids just sprayed the peppermint cooling spray right on their face. I think they were having more fun with the little fan blowing on them. But if you seriously want to cool down really fast, I found the pulse points to benefit the most from the peppermint cooling spray. So misting on your face is fine, but for added benefit do the back of your neck and your wrists and ankles for a really quick cool down.
