Sometimes a cool spritz is just what you need to cool down and calm your skin. Refreshing and restorative for dry summer heat, rough winter air, or even a dehydrating airplane cabin — Fig + Yarrow Complexion Water in Yarrow/Immortelle/Rockrose is an aromatherapeutic skin hydrating mist that mends, regenerates, and heals. Made with certified organic floral distillates and pure essential oils, it’s ideal for after-sun and throughout the day to hydrate, soothe, and tone. Consider it a nice glass of cold water for your face.

2. Agent Nateur N°3 Deodorant

Summer means sweat, but with Agent Nateur N°3 Deodorant, you’re completely covered — and in the most natural way possible. The aluminum-free deodorant in stick form actually works, as opposed to some of those other natural products that don’t provide any odor or dryness protection. And its light scent of honey, lavender, and eucalyptus is simply charming. Of course, you’ll want to use this one day in and day out for whenever you break a sweat, no matter the temperature.

3. Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo

If you’re anything like us, you may slack a bit on the hair care once summer hits. Or, you’ve been in and out of the pool (or the beach) so much that it’s not worth showering in between the water works. The Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo is the perfect solution to unwashed hair as its powerful combination of arrowroot powder, rice powder, kaolin clay, and baking soda absorbs oil and adds volume, giving life to your locks. The organic essential oils of rose geranium and palmarosa create a beachy rose smell that will immediately transport you back to summer’s effortless vibe long after the leaves turn.

4. Meow Meow Tweet Herbal Insect Repellent

Bug spray is an absolute must anytime, but especially in the summer when mosquitoes come out to play. Unfortunately, many of the insect repellents out there are filled with toxic chemicals that you want on your body about just as much as that bug bite. Meow Meow Tweet has the solution, though, with its all-natural herbal insect repellent that is still plenty potent with plant-based essential oils to keep the creepy crawlies at arm’s length. Spray it directly onto your skin, hair, and clothes any time you’re outside and exposed to pesky insects. They’ll bug you no more.

5. A.S. Apothecary First Aid Kit #10 (Summer & Skin)

Apothecary First Aid Kit #10 was created to ease the discomfort of mild sunburn and prickly heat along with minor household burns. It combines a fascinating blend of anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and soothing essential oils, including rose geranium and lavender, with a smooth base of shea butter to calm, treat, and heal any skin woes. It’s a one-pot stop.

The solid perfume, suitable for men and women, is crafted with extracts from real plants, conifers, bark, moss, and mushrooms in a beeswax base. The scent is energetically spicy, dark, and layered.
