Summer Skin Spray takes the scorch out of summer because let's be honest, wandering outdoors may feed the mind, body and soul but it can wreak havoc on skin! Hydrate and heal after your days in the sun in one easy step with a quick spray of my favorite anti-aging essential oils combined with a cool and refreshing blast of rose water. P.S. Keep your Summer Skin Spray in the cooler for added AHHHHH! So what is this essential oil combination? Frankincense, Cypress and Lavender! This is the blend of essential oils I use in my Anti-Age Salve, it's also affectionately known as DIY Immortelle. Your sun-drenched skin will indeed benefit from their anti-inflammatory, regenerative, firming and soothing properties. There's one other component to the healing and hydration of Summer Skin Spray...
Those with dry skin sometimes use rose water as a moisturizer. The idea behind this is that sugars found in rose petals add to rose water's soothing effect, and its natural oils trap moisture in the skin, helping it feel and look smoother. Some experts even believe that rose water plays a role in reducing damage from sun exposure. Too much sun destroys elastin, the fibers that give your skin its ability to stretch. When those fibers break down, they cause your skin to lose firmness and sag. There's some evidence that rose water may help decrease damage to the skin's elastin fibers and prevent wrinkles, but researchers are still testing this theory. Additionally, and most obviously, rose water smells like bliss! This lovely perfume and its healing, rejuvenating effects make rose water a potentially valuable addition to your skin care regimen -- whether used on its own or in toners, creams and lotions.
Looking for some versatility? Summer Skin Spray can double as a natural deodorant.
Now go outside, be wise, be kind and keep your EOs nearby!

Rebecca…I just got my Rose Water in the mail today. I immediately sprayed my face and it is truly blissful! Love it! I will be making up a batch of this Summer Skin Spray tomorrow. Thank you for this great post!
You just inspired a new blog post :)
Hello, this is a little off topic…from the post subject…but I hope you can help me out.
Can you or have you listed a “supply master list” on the site…I search everywhere with no luck. I would like to know exactly what items you use e.g (Oliver oil, spray bottles for oils, etc) I would love to have main items in my stock ready to use once a New must try
recipe pops up. Thanks…for everything!
My mother always used rosewater and glycerin on her hands, legs and feet before bed. Brought back some memories. She was born in 1914, died in 1998, and really had nice skin all her life. She avoided the sun, just like the generation before her did. I definitely will try this summer spray, if for no other reason than the memories. Thank you.
Rose water on the way. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for the post!
AHHH Rebecca – I just placed my order for some EO’s and now you post this?! I’ll have to order again – this sounds wonderful!! LOl!!! Thanks – I’ll give it a try…as soon as I get the cypress and rose water. Thanks to you, I’ve got frankincense on the way. ; )
[…] saw a fellow essential oil user post her recipe for a summer skin spray and knew I had to make it! I love being outside in the summer, but I need to take special care of […]
I bought the rose water 2 weeks ago and I have been spraying it on my face arms & legs after applying my moisturizer (made up of almond oil & aloe & geranium EO) I love it!! I’m working on whipping up some homemade skin products with the rose water. Super excited. Thanks for the share Rebecca. You and your sister have changed my life for the better for better. All my skin care, hair care and over all health care is homemade using every recipe you both have shared on your blogs. Also inspiring me to incorporate EOs into my daily routine ranging from head to toes, all purpose cleaners, detergents and lastly, diffusing. THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!! Dawn M
Oh I’m happy to hear you like it and yes, the rose water makes a huge difference!
I just made this skin spray. I was a little skeptical because I’m not too crazy about the smell of cypress, but I got to tell you this smells wonderful! Must be the rose water that makes it so delightful!
I am ready to place my order, but am wondering about the spray bottles… when I click the link it just brings up the bottle with a dropper… where do I find the sprayer?
Yes, omit the Cypress until you you’re able to add it :)
Is there a sub for Cypress? I don’t have it on hand. Good enough just to use Frankincense and Lavender?
buy some body spray in a spray bottle next time you are in a big store, and dump the contents out, much cheaper than buying something off the internet, waiting 2 weeks and then having it arrive broken( has happened to me before!)
You could but the results will be different as rosewater has it’s own healing and moisturizing properties and it’s great stuff!
Awesome!!! That’s my problem too! Missing 1or2 things needed for the latest recipe you come or with. Tatty
