The Secret to Keeping Cool at Disney

Summer heat is upon us down here in South Florida, so I decided to make some "Elsa Spray" for my husband to keep in his backpack. He bikes to and from work every day, so this spray was the perfect thing for him to have. I saw this idea originally on this blog, but added a few drops of lavender EO's to give it a little more of a soothing property.

It is also a great item to slip into your backpack for a trip to the theme parks. Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and Disney World are all located in Sunny Florida and with limited inside rides and waiting cues, this spray could be your little secret to staying nice and cool. 

The Recipe: 
  • 2 OZ water
  • 3 drops Peppermint Essential Oils
  • 2 Drops Lavender Essential Oils 
The Benefits: 
Peppermint*
  • Cooling Effect 
  • Often used to improve respiratory function
  • Can help relieve tension 
Lavender
  • Soothing to the skin
  • Relaxing aromatic properties
  • Eases Muscle tension 

Where do I get my Essential Oils? 
I purchase my EO's from my mom, who is a wellness advocate for DoTerra. With several years of personal experience with essential oils, she is a great resource. Would you consider supporting her small business?
