A Hot Flash is defined as a quick sensation of heat that pulsates throughout your body and for many of us, it means we break out in perspiration all over. Hot Flashes are usually the most intense on our face, scalp, chest and neck. Once you feel one coming on, it’s very difficult to fight it or cool down. Some women put ice on their neck or their wrists, which is not always very easy to do when you are out and about. We have what we think is a better solution; Instant Relief Spray. Our Organic Spray is based in Organic Grape Alcohol and has menthol and mint which are both known for their cooling properties.
The idea of the spray is to give you some instant relief. (You can even refrigerate for some additional cool down.) The oils we use can be absorbed through the skin and each of them have a specific job with helping the hormonal shift that happens with menopause.
Wild Mint is cultivated for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Wild mint is also more cooling and is stimulating to the senses. Historically Wild mint has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for gastric issues. This has been the case for other cultures as well. The Aztecs and Native Americans used it to cure insomnia and to rub the plant’s oil into the skin for aches and pains. Currently it is used in many countries for various ailments, extracts and menthol-related chemicals for food, drinks, cough medicines, creams and cigarettes. Menthol, limonene, and other chemicals can be extracted from wild mint.
Peppermint, one of the many members of the mint family, also has a long history of being able to help cool the body from hot flashes.

Witch Hazel Native Americans have long recognized the medicinal properties of witch hazel and used a decoction of the boiled plant parts to treat skin irritations and tumors. Nowadays this popular herbal remedy is recognized worldwide as a natural cleanser and toner. Witch hazel has many more uses than simply to clarify skin and shrink pores. Some people apply witch hazel directly to the skin for itching, pain and swelling (inflammation), eye inflammation, skin injury, mucous membrane inflammation, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, bruises, insect bites, minor burns, acne, sensitive scalp, and other skin irritations Witch hazel is reportedly a natural astringent. It is the high concentrations of tannins in witch hazel makes it such a wonder herb. IT is also the tannins that provide the cooling effect desired by those in menopause.
