Cooling down in summer - 6 tips from the pharmacy against heat
The temperatures are rising and rising. For many, it's off to the long-awaited holiday, where high temperatures are easier to bear. For all those at home suffering from the high heat, we ve collected a few tips on how to cool down our bodies when temperatures are high.
Massage with peppermint oil
Reports on the use of peppermint and its oil exist in many ancient cultures. The scent of peppermint is refreshing and cooling. As a "cure-all" in the context of aromatherapy, peppermint offers a variety of uses, e.g. mixed with jojoba oil as a cooling leg massage for swollen feet. Ideal after hiking days, long work and sporting activities. An all-rounder in our range is the Magnesium Gel Sport. It combines high-quality Zechstein magnesium with the essential oils peppermint and spruce and is massaged directly onto stressed parts of the body.
The natural sour honey made from vinegar and honey is recommended by our pharmacists as a daily mineral refreshment in between meals. Doctors of antiquity, such as Hippocrates, already swore by the health-promoting effect of the healing drink. Cold-stirred honey contains around 200 ingredients, including amino acids, minerals, enzymes and many more. Due to its high mineral content, Oxymel is particularly suitable for people with mineral deficiencies and muscle cramps. You can find out more about Oxymel here.
Another tip that our founder Alexander Ehrmann particularly likes to follow: Cool 100% pure plant hydrolates in the fridge and refresh your face with it every morning or in between. New to the range is our Hydrolatum N° 10 - Orange Blossom. Orange blossoms are often used in perfume production because of their pleasant fresh citrus scent. The mildly vanilla-scented blossom of the orange was even used as an aphrodisiac in earlier times.
Do you need more energy? In summer, we are often drained by days of heat and the resulting poor sleep. If you are looking for a 100% organic energiser, you will find it in our Soul Splash fragrance elixir. Whether applied to the face or body, SOUL SPLASH promotes normal concentration, energises and strengthens body and mind. The top note with lemongrass, rosemary and basil gives energy, while bitter orange, cajeput and lavender as heart notes have a clarifying and strengthening effect.

Organic Herbal Iced Tea
Who says you can only drink tea in winter? Even in summer, our pharmacists recommend the cool refreshment of a herbal tea. Tip: Our Saint Charles Tea Organic N°8 - Ginger Lemongrass is perfect for making iced tea. Simply brew the tea, add lemon or/and lemongrass, let it cool and serve with ice cubes.
Hydro Boost Gel Serum
If the skin is exposed to more sunlight in summer, it tends to dry out more quickly. Our remedy: the Hydro Boost Gel Serum. The hyaluronic acid in the serum binds moisture, while the pollutant Ectoin has an anti-inflammatory effect, protects against pollutants and has a regenerating effect on the skin.
The ideal moisturising day care for the summer.
