I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but in the USA we are experiencing record breaking heat throughout most of the country.
And personally, I have zero interest in doing any of the traditional activities that involve extended time outdoors like bonfires, hiking, gardening. And forget about baking!
I’ve compiled a list of my favorite low key, extremely simple activities to fan your Litha Passions without inviting heat stroke.
I plan on using some of them on the Solstice and all summer long.
🌿 Infused herbal and or fruit waters
🥤 Summer Fruit Lassis
🧊 Herbal and or floral ice cubes for your beverages
🍓 Frozen yogurt and berry bark
🍇 Grapes dipped in yogurt and frozen, or just plain. Mini portable popsicles!
🌬Curling ribbons in Litha colors tied to the cage of an oscillating fan
🌹 Herbal or Floral infused water in a misting bottle kept nearby in a wine chiller.
🪴 Bouquet of fresh fire element herbs as a centerpiece that you use all day in meals.
Ideas? Basil in a caprese salad. Mint and melon balls. Rosemary foccia pizza.
👑 Flower crown wreath
Red Carnations are associated with the Sun, cheap, easy to come by and make a sturdy crown base if you want to add extras.
🧘🏻♀️ Singing Bowl Mediations
Find them on Spotify, YouTube or Insight Timer.
Bonus points for solar chakra frequencies.
🚿 Chamomile Shower Tea. Cause it’s too darn hot for a bath! All you need is two chamomile tea bags and a votive candle. Brew a weak pot and cool for a shower tea. Open the other and sprinkle some on the votive candle to light in your shower. I like to set mine in the soap dish
📕 Spooky cozy reads
