It seems like pretty much every city, region, state, or province is experiencing a heatwave this summer, and while I’m not complaining, nor am I wishing it would get cold, sometimes a girl just needs a quick break from the scorching heat. If sitting in air conditioning isn’t an option for you, there is a more natural fix that I think my fellow green queens may just love.

Combine all of your ingredients in the spray bottle, then shake it like a polaroid picture.
