If you need Summer heat relief from working in your garden, or just from being outside here are a few ideas:
Reward yourself with a cool refreshing bath or shower with a mint or eucalyptus body scrub or bath & shower gel.
Spice things up with one of my lavender sprays or lotions.
Kick back and enjoy a nice cold glass of mint iced tea.
OR cold glass of herb lemonade with mint and lemon verbena.
Impress your friends with an iced cold Cucumber-Rosemary-Lemon Drink. Here is the recipe;
- 2 cucumbers, peeled and diced
- 2 lemons, juiced
- 5 tablespoons sugar(or other sweetener)
- 1 tablespoon rosemary, finely minced
- San Pellegrino Water
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well. Fill a glass with ice and halfway with San Pellegrino water, top off with the cucumber blend, stir well. Can add a jigger of vodka if you want an adult beverage. Garnish with a slice of cucumber and sprig of rosemary.
