Low Key Litha

I donโ€™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!

Iโ€™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.

FOOD

โ˜€๏ธSun tea

๐ŸŒฟ Infused herbal and or fruit waters

๐Ÿฅค Summer Fruit Lassis

๐ŸงŠ Herbal and or floral ice cubes for your beverages

๐Ÿ“ Frozen yogurt and berry bark

๐Ÿ‡ Grapes dipped in yogurt and frozen, or just plain. Mini portable popsicles!

ACTIVITIES

๐ŸŒฌCurling ribbons in Litha colors tied to the cage of an oscillating fan

๐ŸŒน Herbal or Floral infused water in a misting bottle kept nearby in a wine chiller.

๐Ÿชด 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.

๐Ÿ‘‘ 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.

๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Singing Bowl Mediations
Find them on Spotify, YouTube or Insight Timer.
Bonus points for solar chakra frequencies.

๐Ÿšฟ Chamomile Shower Tea. Cause itโ€™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

๐Ÿ“• Spooky cozy reads
Hot tip for a chill read
