Who doesn’t love the long days of the warm summer months? Lots of time on the patio spending time with friends and family, days on the boat, hiking, camping, etc. There’s lots of fun to be had, but spending time outdoors in the summer heat comes with its own unique set of challenges. From too much sun to sore muscles to pesky bugs, we have a lineup of Summer Outdoor Essentials that provide just the solutions you need.

After A Day at Play

After a long hike or a day of swimming, nothing is better to soothe your muscles and joints than our Aromalgesic Muscle & Joint Spray.

This concentrated, non-aerosol compressed air spray provides immediate, lasting relief for muscle and joint stiffness and discomfort. Oil-free, this formula absorbs quickly!

Bugs & Pests

Bugs and pests can be bothersome this time of year. There’s nothing worse than trying to enjoy a beautiful day out in nature when those pesky, uninvited guests arrive on the scene. Staying protected and safe without all the chemicals can often be difficult as so many products on the market contain ingredients that are toxic to us and the environment. At Pranarom, we use only certified organic essential oils, offering you and your family a safe option. Here are a couple products in our lineup that do the job right:

Defense Spray: Our classic Aromashield Defense spray is great for protecting you from those annoying flying pests with a pleasant, light aroma. It’s now in a kid’s version, too!

After Bite Eraser: New name, same great product! Made with Lavender, Peppermint, and Clove, this product provides immediate relief for itchy bug bites while promoting healing. Check out our new version for kids on our website.

After Sun

With temperatures rising across the country, taking care of our skin couldn’t be more important. Not only do we need to protect ourselves from the sun, but we also need to soothe our skin after it’s been exposed. Our line of hydrosols are great for hydrating the skin and calming irritation after a long day outdoors.

For an easy cool down that pampers your skin on a hot summer day, check out this After-Sun DIY Hydrosol Blend.

1 T. Aloe Vera Juice
2 oz. Pranarom Peppermint Hydrosol
2 oz. Pranarom Lavender Hydrosol

Add all ingredients to a glass spray bottle. Shake well. Give your body a good spritz and enjoy the cool relief. Store in the fridge.

Aromatherapy Candle DIY

Simple. Pure. 100% Natural. Who doesn’t love the scent of a beautiful candle? But did you know that many candles are made with toxic ingredients? While store-bought candles smell amazing, often times they are made with waxes and wicks that contain toxins. Making your own candles is very simple, and who doesn’t love something handmade. You only need a handful of ingredients.So, let’s get started. First you will need a container for your candle. You could use a metal tin or a glass jar. We chose glass, so you can see the beauty in the layers of the different colors of wax. There are so many jar options available, from recycled jelly jars to ones you can buy in craft stores and on the web.Next you will need wax. Here we are using beeswax. There are many waxes on the market, but we love the organic feel of beeswax. Beeswax comes in different forms: blocks of beeswax and pastilles. The pastilles are mini pellets of beeswax that melt much quicker. You will also find a couple of options in the color. The difference between the waxes is slight: The yellower beeswax is straight from the hive, while the white beeswax is naturally bleached by exposing in thin layers to air and sunlight. For this candle we chose to use both types of beeswax to give a layered look. The choice is up to you. It will not change the functionality of the candle one bit. Next is the wick. We chose hemp wick because it burns slower than other wicks making your candle last longer. It also has a lower temperature flame with little to no smoke. Finally, the essential oils. This is where the fun comes in. You get to go on a sensory journey and play with different scent combos. You will need about 40-50 drops of essential oil for your candle. Some oils are stronger, and their scents dissipate more slowly. If you are looking for a stronger scented candle, choose a combination of these:• Pine• Eucalyptus• Rosemary• Sweet Orange• PeppermintHere are some scent combos that we love:Floral: Rose Geranium+ LavenderWoodsy: Sandalwood + Cedarwood + OrangeFresh: Lemongrass + Mint DIY Instructions Step-by-Step Supplies:6 oz Glass Jar7.5 oz. Beeswax 40-50 Drops of Essential Oils1 Hemp WickInstructions: 1. Stick the wick to the bottom of jar using a little melted wax.2. Hold wick up using two sticks tied together at each end, with your wick in the middle3. Place beeswax in a double broiler on stovetop4. Melt beeswax until completely dissolved5. Remove from stove6. Let cool slightly7. Stir in essential oils8. Pour into jar9. Let cool*If layering the two waxes, follow the steps above but use half the amount of wax for each color. Pour the first color and let sit until set and then follow with the next color. One thing to keep in mind when making candles with essential oils is that the fragrance is subtle. If you are looking for a stronger scent, you may want to diffuse your oils. Or better yet, a combination of the two. Who doesn’t love the beautiful scent of diffused oils while enjoying the flicker of a candle? A powerful relaxing combo indeed! Feel free to make it your own combinations and make sure to have some fun! If you do make a candle, be sure to tag us on Instagram at @pranarom_usa. We would love to see what you come up with!
