Our summer wishes include sandy toes and salty kisses. But no matter the season, heading to the beach is our favorite, for shore! Even if we can’t see the coastline for quite some time, we’ll be lying out with neon towels, sipping cool beverages as ukulele music pumps through our speakers.

Whether you’re stuck at home or minutes from that endless horizon on the ocean, you can activate beach mode with these four essential oils!

Cedarwood essential oil

Picture this: Crystal-clear waters, the finest sand around, and tangy drinks just a reach away. Cedarwood essential oil, with its sweet, balmy aroma, puts us in mind of dream vacations and even dreamier vistas. The scent embodiment of “sit back and relax,” Cedarwood is a beachy no-brainer.

Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood essential oil

Warm and rich, this oil has a bucket-list destination in its name: Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood™ essential oil. Straight from the Kona Sandalwood Reforestation Project, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood comes from dead and dying sandalwood trees, so it’s as earth friendly as it is skin friendly.
