13 tricks for keeping your cool when it's sizzling outside.

Freeze your bedsheets.

Place your sheets in a plastic bag and pop in the freezer for a super-chilled sleep.

Chill out with a SUPER ELIXIR Granita.

Our cucumber, pineapple and mint granita tastes super-refreshing and includes gut-loving pre and probiotics for better digestion.

Choose natural fibres.

Pure cotton breathes and regulates body temperature more effectively than a synthetic mix will, so go au natural when it comes to summer dressing and bedlinens. 

Hang-out.

Make your whole room more comfortable by hanging a wet sheet in front of an open window. When hit by a breeze, it quickly brings down the room’s temperature.

Set your ceiling fans to summer. 

Ceiling fan needs to be adjusted seasonally. Set to run counter-clockwise in summer at high speed for a cooler airflow.   

ZZZ like an Egyptian.

Dampen your sheets or towel in cool water and use as a blanket. Lay the damp sheets on top of a dry towel to avoid soaking the mattress.

Ice your tea.

Steep WelleCo SLEEP WELLE Calming Tea in hot water with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and star anise, add ice and sip for a soothing and cooling tonic.

DIY breeze.

Position a bowl full of ice in front of a fan. The breeze will pick up cold water from the ice’s surface as it melts, creating a cool and refreshing mist.

Ice your pulse points.

Apply ice packs to pulse points at the wrists, neck, elbows, groin, ankles, and behind the knees.

Sleep alone.

Sure it could be lonely, but less body heat can make for a more comfortable sleep.   

Drink up.

Up to 3 litres a day if you can. Add a wedge of lemon for a hint of refreshing tang.

Keep low. 

Heat rises so move your mattress on the floor or sleep in a downstairs room.

Make Ice Pops.

Ice pops are perfectly cool on a sweltering day, easy to throw together, and when packed with SUPER ELIXIR Greens and NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN, are packed with plant-based nutrients that nourish all 11 systems of the body starting at a cellular level.  Refreshing, hydrating, and nutritious, they are wellness on a stick!
