Get an Amazing Sunscreen

Since we first started the Natural Products Network more than a decade ago, natural sunscreen has come a LONG way!

What was once essentially white messy paste, has transformed into advanced formulas that really work. Our absolute favorite brand in this space is Coola.

At Coola, you will find technology mixed with organic goodness. Yes, most products are NOT 100% natural and organic, but Coola is dedicated to making effective products that are as clean and healthy as possible!

Essentially, Coola represents a huge advancement in the sunscreen space and we continue to love their products as the brand grows and evolves.

Plus, you can easily navigate their website to find formulas that work best for your individual needs. Yes, we wish that everything they offered was 100 percent organic, but understand that products also have to perform.

Don’t forget the Scalp and Hair Mist Organic Sunscreen SPF 30% to protect your head as well!

Keep Bugs at Bay, Naturally

Natural bug spray is another category that has really struggled in the natural space, but there are still some natural standouts.

At the top of the Natural Bug Repellents we’ve tested, we definitely recommend Quantum Buzz Away Extreme Insect Repellent! This is one of the oldies, but goodies in natural bug repellents. This product uses three powerhouse essential oils that drives bugs away: geranium oil, cedarwood oil and citronella oil to offer a DEET-free solution that you can feel good about. DEET is linked to a variety of adverse affects including skin reactions, brain malfunctions and even cancer.

One thing to note, we have found that in order to get the desired results we apply this natural bug repellent every two hours. While that might be a tad more often than we would like, we love the smell and feel of this product on the skin more than other natural bug repellents that we’ve tried.

For another natural fix to help keep mosquitos away, try simply adding a high-quality and portable outdoor fan! Mosquitos are horrible flyers and thus a well-placed outdoor fan can really help prevent them from coming around!

Drink Hot Tea to Cool Down

During the summer, there is such an emphasis on making every drink ice cold! Thus, you have probably never considered sipping on hot tea during a sweltering day…to actually cool down!

Come to find out that there are taste receptors in our tongues that actually trigger a cooling down effect when we drink something that is hot.

Therefore, don’t put away your helpful hot tea blends this summer for a sugary cold soda! Instead, try sipping on a hot herbal tea on a warm morning and enjoy the sensation.

So many people enjoy their tea ritual in the winter and find that it protects their health. Why not take this positive experience into your summer?

Also, consider adding some local raw honey to your tea blends to get even more benefits. Honey is known to be a natural “wound healer” so it can be especially soothing when combined with your morning tea!

Our very favorite go-to hot tea for summer has to be Organic Peppermint Tea. Peppermint boast a myriad of health benefits from promoting good digestion to soothing sinus congestion and even upping your energy level! All great things for summer!
