Keeping Cool In High Heat
From Gayle Eversole - The Leaflady
Using ice cubes to keep cool - A tried-and-true method is to wet the pulse point near your wrist joint with cold water. This point is usually three finger widths above your wrist. Keep that spot cool by holding against it an ice cube wrapped in a clean cloth to prevent a skin burn.
Relief can be immediate, and this method will cool down your entire body -- by as much as three degrees Fahrenheit -- for up to an hour.
HoT Weather Spritzer 
When things get hot, refresh by spraying on a lemon and mint spritzer.
You can make it just lemon or just mint too. Some like just lavender or lavender-mint. If you do that add 5 drops of the single essential oil
Lemon Mint Spritzer
1 cup pure, filtered or mineral water
3 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops mint essential oil
1 tsp witch hazel
or if you have dry skin, omit witch hazel and use
1/2 teaspoon vegetable glycerine
1/2 teaspoon almond oil
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a PET or blue glass spray bottle. For an extra refreshing feeling, keep your spritzer refrigerated.
HoT Weather Tip
To me, anything over 75 in the Puget Sound region is unbearable, 102 is obscene. I grew up for 34 years in the East where is gets to be 100 with 100% humidity on a regular basis in the summer. This led me to believe that for a decade or more Seattle was not humid, then I moved to East of the mountains.
I moved to WA in 1978 when Seattle was still in the domain of what was known as "Lesser Seattle". For those that missed this, you really don't know Seattle.
I recall a few of these really hot days in the late 70s and early 80s. Now its just too dark and wet in the winter for me, I need sun and an escape from mold.
But for these "Dog Days" my favorite hot weather, anti-humidity drink and all-around health booster is one I just shared with my friends at Swinomish -
Stop off at your local co-op (as I'm not for the corporate mind at Whole Foods that is trying to take over the health food market place with UNFI and corporate takeovers of the product base) and get a bottle of organic raw apple cider vinegar.
There are several brands but my all time favorite is Solana Gold; Bragg's is good too.
Make sure you are using fluoride and chlorine free water, and fill a glass with about 8 - 10 ounces of that refreshing wet stuff, and add just one teaspoon of ACV. Stir, sip and enjoy.
You'll find out much more about the health benefits of raw apple cider vinegar on my website: <http://www.leaflady.org>www.leaflady.org.
Stay cool and enjoy!
And by the way, your pets will like you too if you add one teaspoons ACV to one quart of good water. It will keep them cool and it will scare fleas away too (something E. WA doesn't have, yeah!).
