Exploring May's Natural Remedies for Seasonal Health

Addressing health issues in May doesn't always necessitate a visit to the pharmacy. Discover remedies using everyday, natural ingredients to combat typical ailments during this time of year.


Soothing Sunburn Relief

As the days grow longer and sunnier, sunburns become more common. For a natural and effective remedy, try this aloe vera and Zimms Heal EVOO blend:

  • Ingredients: Fresh aloe vera gel (or scoop out the flesh of half an aloe leaf and blend), 1 tablespoon of Zimms Heal EVOO
  • Directions: Mix the aloe vera gel with Zimms EVOO until well combined. Apply the mixture generously to sunburned skin. Aloe vera provides cooling relief, while the olive oil helps to moisturize and repair damaged skin.

Allergy Relief Tea

Spring blooms can trigger allergies. Combat symptoms naturally with this soothing tea:

  • Ingredients: 1 teaspoon dried nettle leaves, 1 teaspoon dried peppermint leaves, 1 teaspoon dried chamomile flowers, 1 teaspoon local honey, 1 cup hot water
  • Directions: Combine the dried herbs in a teapot or infuser. Pour hot water over the herbs and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and add honey to taste. Nettle and peppermint help reduce inflammation and congestion, while chamomile provides calming effects.

Natural Bug Bite Soother

Mosquitoes and other insects can leave irritating bites. Use this simple remedy to alleviate the itch and inflammation:

  • Ingredients: 1 teaspoon baking soda, a few drops of Zimms Heal EVOO
  • Directions: Mix the baking soda with enough Zimms Heal EVOO to form a thick paste. Apply the paste to bug bites and let sit for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off. Baking soda neutralizes the itch, and olive oil helps to soothe the skin.

As temperatures rise, keeping your skin hydrated is essential. This refreshing face mist is easy to make and perfect for on-the-go hydration:

  • Ingredients: 1 cup distilled water, 1 tablespoon rose water, 1 teaspoon Zimms Heal EVOO

With fresh produce in abundance, sometimes our digestive system needs a little help. This natural remedy can ease digestion:

  • Ingredients: 1 teaspoon Zimms Heal EVOO, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, 1 cup warm water
