Summer is hands down my favourite season of all. So, each year, as Labour Day approaches, I become a little sad. I’m a warm weather person and September often brings with it cooler days and chilly evenings. Many people are ecstatic as they complain about hot, sticky and humid weather, but I say bring it on! I come alive when it’s 25+ degrees Celsius outside.

Fall fashions can be exciting, but I’m happier wearing sandals and short sleeves than bundling up in sweaters and boots. In the summer, my feet are never cold, I don’t need a jacket and I can sit outside and enjoy the long evenings without covering up. Summer also means an abundance of local produce – cherries bursting with flavour, strawberries ruby red and juicy and vegetables galore. I’m in heaven with not only the choice, but also the flavour that these wonderful fresh foods carry when they’re in season.

As we get set to celebrate the last long weekend of the summer, there are a few things that I hope to do before my teens head back to school and routine ensues once again:

Cocktail outsideSit outside and enjoy a cocktail

Watch the sun setWatch the sunset

Go on a hike

Thankfully, here on the West Coast we have been enjoying unprecedented warm summer weather. If the forecast is to be trusted, we still have a good many days of this sunshine left so that I can enjoy a few of my favourite summer activities. What do you like to do when the temperature heats up?

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
