As the sun blazes high in the sky and temperatures soar, we understand the desire to seek respite from the heat and fully embrace the joys of summer. The golden rays and azure skies beckon us outdoors, enticing us with endless possibilities and warm adventures. While the heat may seem daunting at first, fret not, for we are here to unlock the secrets of turning hot summer days into delightful moments of bliss.

This blog will be your guide to harnessing the powers of cooling and hydrating herbs that can keep your mind and body refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to embrace the sunny days. So, let's dive in and discover the secrets of these delightful herbs that can turn any scorching day into a refreshingly pleasant experience!


When the summer sun leaves you feeling parched, hibiscus comes to the rescue. It stands out as a true superstar when it comes to beating the heat and staying hydrated during hot summer days. Its flowers are rich in natural antioxidants, which help to flush out toxins from the body and keep you hydrated. In many cultures around the world, hibiscus tea is a popular choice for staying cool in the summer. Consuming this ruby-red elixir can help regulate body temperature, making it a valuable ally during heat waves. 

Iced hibiscus tea is a fair tastier and healthier alternative to sugary sodas. It can be easily brewed at home to attain a delightful beverage that is caffeine-free and packed with flavor. You can sweeten it with honey or a natural sweetener of your choice for a guilt-free treat. It is the perfect thirst quencher that will leave you feeling revitalized and ready to take on the day. Try serving it with ice and a slice of lemon or a sprig of mint for a tangy and floral shot!

Lemon Verbena

Staying hydrated is crucial during summer, and lemon verbena is a natural thirst quencher that can make drinking water a delightful experience. It is a perfect companion to keep you cool, hydrated, and refreshed throughout the scorching season. 

Brewed as a herbal tea, this aromatic infusion can work wonders in lowering body temperature and providing relief from the summer heat. Either hot or iced, sipping on a cup of Lemon Verbena Tea can help you get ready to take on the day while sweeping coolness over you. 

We recommend infusing your water with fresh lemon verbena leaves for a burst of zesty flavor that will entice you to reach for your water bottle more often. 

Rose Geranium

From refreshing beverages to skin-loving remedies, rose geranium has the power to keep you cool, hydrated, and feeling rejuvenated throughout the sweltering season. This beautiful plant is a true gift from nature with its alluring flowery scent and a bevy of health advantages.

You can infuse water with a few fresh rose geranium leaves for a subtle floral twist that makes hydration a pleasurable experience. As you sip on this delicate elixir, you'll feel refreshed and invigorated, encouraging you to drink more water throughout the day.

We recommend our very own Rose Geranium Hydrosol! Its enchanting aroma whisks you away as it caresses your senses and imparts a divine kiss of hydration, leaving your skin plump and youthful.  Keep a bottle in the refrigerator for an extra burst of coolness during the hottest hours, providing relief to your skin and senses.
