Festival season…we're in the midst! Whether you are a seasoned party-pro or a total festival noob, it’s important that you get the most out of your experience so that you can talk about it for years to come! That means you can’t neglect your health. No, this doesn’t mean that you have to spend your time doing sit-ups instead of dancing around with your besties, or skip out on that delicious slice of late night pizza. All you need to do is keep an eye on the way your body feels, making sure you stay healthy so that you can have the time of your life. Here are five simple ways to get the most out of your festival experience without neglecting your health:

Stay Hydrated: Any festival-goer is at serious risk of dehydration. Between the dancing, hot summer weather, and diuretic beverages, dehydration can leave you feeling tired, cranky, and overall bad! Serious symptoms of dehydration include headaches, dry skin, confusion, and extreme thirst - nobody has time for that! Be sure to carry around a water bottle and fill up as you go about your day. Squeeze some lemon juice into it for some added flavor and a boost of energizing vitamin C.

Boost Your Immunity: Don’t let that warm weather fool you; it is just as easy for your immune system to take a hit during summer months as it is during the winter. Keep your immune system strong with ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi-Holy Basil. This awesome supplement has been shown to provide strong immune support against free radicals, environmental toxins, and daily stress. It has also been shown to help detoxification, something that you’re probably going to need after a long festival run. ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi-Holy-Basil is made with USDA-certified organic herbs, which means you don’t have to worry about nasty pesticides going into your body. All you have to do is focus on staying well and having the time of your life!

Get on that Level! Feeling worn out and it’s just the first day? Can’t seem to keep your eyes open when the sun goes down? Get on that next level with ORGANIC INDIA Moringa capsules. Moringa is a great source of all 18 amino acids and essential minerals and vitamins, to help keep you alert and aware all evening! This antioxidant rich supplement is packed with energizing nutrients like vitamin C, iron, and potassium. Just pop a few of these capsules before heading out to the show and stay energized day and night!

Don’t get burned! Sure fire way to ruin your fun at a festival? A nasty sunburn. It may sound obvious, but slathering on the sunscreen is super important, especially if you plan on spending the majority of your time outside. Get in the habit of carrying around your favorite bottle of natural sunscreen. This way, you can reapply it when needed, especially when you start sweating from all of that dancing you’ll be doing! Another must? Shades. Protect your eyes from the harsh rays of the sun!

Refresh and Revive: Under the hot sun, it is always nice to have a little pick-me-up. I love making a refreshing spray to spritz all over myself and my friends when we’re feeling the heat. Grab a spray bottle of any size, fill with water and add 1 drop of Tulsi Essential Oil per ounce of water. Add lavender, peppermint or sandalwood for an extra aromatic kick. A little Tulsi spritz goes a long way in making you feel rejuvenated and energized, plus you’ll smell fresh and delicious.
