How to Stay Cool in the Heat
- Block sunlight from as many windows as possible. Using corrugated cardboard from your recycling bin will help keep the heat out, but even tacking sheets over the windows is better than letting the sun cook the inside of your house!
- Open windows and doors in the evening as soon as it's cooler outside than in, and then close everything up in the morning before it starts warming up again.
- Utilize the cooling power of water! DRINK, spritz, mist, sprinkle, rub ice cubes over your face and pulse points, or freeze a damp hand towel and wear it around your neck.
Turn off lights and electronics! They create heat!
Know the warning signs for heat exhaustion & heat stroke. This heat can be life-threatening, especially to people taking SSRIs, people with certain disabilities, and the elderly. Make sure your loved ones stay hydrated and cool.
Use these Sea Witch approved heat wave hacks --
Keep Facial Toner in the Fridge!
For a cooling, witch hazel and rosewater mist with beneficial aloe and calming lavender, store your Soothing Facial Toner in the fridge! It'll be nice and refreshing when you need a spritz. You'll never go back.
Trade Candles & Incense for Scented Veils
If it's too hot to dream of burning anything - maybe not even incense - switch to Scented Veils! We recommend misting your pillows and curtains, and letting the sun bring out the fragrance over time. Once it's cooler in the evening and you can open the windows, the breeze will give it another boost.
Take Cool Showers & Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Stay safe and remember to conserve water by taking quick refreshing showers throughout the day if you feel overheated. Don't even dry off, just let the water help your body release heat into the air. And choose a soap that can easily remove oily sun block without drying out your skin! Our nourishing Frith Body Soap is packed with moisturizing oils and soothing oatmeal. It has the silkiest lather we've ever touched.
Stay safe out there, Sea Witches! We love you!
