Chill Out This Summer: Tips and Eco-Friendly Products to Help You Stay Cool
Summer is here, and with it comes the heat. While it's important to stay hydrated during the warmer months, there are also other ways to cool down and make the most out of your summer days. Here are some tips and product recommendations from our #LocalLoveForSummer campaign to help you stay cool this season.
Hydrate and Refresh with Figtree Farms Hibiscus Loose Flower Tea
Staying hydrated is crucial during hot summer days. Instead of sugary drinks or plastic-packaged juices, why not try Figtree Farms Hibiscus Loose Flower Tea? This tea is not only refreshing, but it's also packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C, which can help keep your skin healthy and protect your body from the damaging effects of the sun.
To make, simply steep a tablespoon of hibiscus flowers in a cup of boiling water for 5-10 minutes. Once done, strain the flowers and pour the tea over a glass filled with ice. You can also add a slice of lemon or lime for an extra refreshing twist.
Take a Dip in the Pool
Taking a dip in the pool is one of the best ways to cool down during the summer. Whether it's a community pool or your own backyard oasis, swimming is a great way to cool off and have some fun. If you don't have access to a pool, consider visiting a local water park or beach for a refreshing dip.
Swimming is not only a fun way to beat the heat, but it's also a great way to get some exercise. Doing laps or participating in a water aerobics class can help you cool down while also getting your heart rate up. Plus, being in the water is a low-impact way to exercise, making it perfect for those with joint issues or injuries. So, whether you're looking for a way to cool down or a new form of exercise, taking a dip in the pool is a great option.
Get Creative with Cooling Treats
Cool down from the inside out with some homemade popsicles or smoothie bowls. You can use your favorite fruits and veggies, or try something new and exotic like dragon fruit or lychee. Not only are these treats refreshing, but they're also a healthy alternative to ice cream or sugary desserts.
Cool Down with Human Nature Cooling Leg & Body Cream
Human Nature Cooling Leg & Body Cream is a perfect way to cool down after a long day under the sun. Made with natural ingredients such as peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, and aloe vera, this cream provides a refreshing and soothing sensation on the skin. It's perfect for those who spend a lot of time on their feet or have sore muscles after exercising.
To use, simply apply the cream to your legs and body, and feel the coolness seep in. You can also store it in the fridge for a more refreshing experience.

Enjoy Some Shade
When the sun is at its hottest, it's important to find some shade. Whether it's under a tree or an umbrella, finding a shady spot can provide some much-needed relief from the heat. If you're planning on spending a lot of time outside, consider bringing a portable canopy or pop-up tent to create your own shade.
Another way to enjoy some shade is by creating your own outdoor retreat at home. Consider adding some potted plants, a hammock, and some outdoor furniture to create a comfortable and shaded spot to relax. Not only will it keep you cool, but it can also add some greenery and natural beauty to your outdoor space. Plus, you can enjoy the shade all summer long!
