Summertime is when you have to pay extra attention to your skin, especially if you stay in the sun/
For two years in a row, when taking vacation in Florida in July, I've used Sweet Almond oil (as a base oil) with Geranium on my skin.
The result? I never got burnt and got a pretty dark suntan, the darkest I ever had. Plus mosquitoes did not bother me!
However, one day when we went on a kayak trip which lasted longer than I anticipated, I did not protect my skin. Yes, I did get burnt. I used St.Maries Lavender to get my skin back to normal in just 2 days! This year I might bring LavaDerm (Lavender mixed with Aloe) with me.
Want to cool off on a hot day? My husband got me hooked on drinking Peppermint - 1 drop in a glass of water. Refreshing, invigorating and delicious too!

NoteUsing commercially-made soaps does a lot of damage to your skin, the largest organ of yours (third lung).
"When the skin is cleansed with soap, it's natural hydrolipid layer is attacked and the acid mantle is destroyed. Skin in general is quite robust, but soup in particular can be detrimental to the skin and the consequences of continued abuse will be noticeable years later" (from Aromatherapy Course by Dr. rer. nat. Kurt Schnaubelt)
"It is necessary to let go of a cherished, intuitive prejudice, that good cleansing is associated with lots of lather. This is a real illusion. The lather is only an accompanying effect which generally occurs with soups or detergents. These detergents are, of course, "dissolving" the oily or fatty debris, but there are much better means to achieve the result. Oil and fat cannot be removed with acetone or turpentine, which would be too harsh for the skin, but with fats or vegetable oils." One of the main "achievements" of "botanical" shampoo manufacturers is to effect the miraculous metamorphosis from synthetic chlorosulfation to "derived from coconut oil". The fact is, lauryl and laureth sulfate detergents are fully synthetic. "
