Yikes! 107 degrees tomorrow! You know to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, avoid the sun and all of the BIG tools for minimizing the effects of too much heat but here’s a small tool to also add to your arsenal.

Peppermint has both cooling and surface heat removing properties. Try rubbing some peppermint essential oil at your temples, the back of your neck and along the undersides of your wrists at the creases for a cooling sensation. The oil comes in a small bottle easily tucked away in a pocket or purse. Will you smell like peppermint? Yes. Is it worth it to feel cool?
You decide!
