Cool Off With Spirulina! California, the Golden State, the land of beautiful beaches, people, and sunny weather! California is the stuff of dreams; I mean, how many times have you heard someone talk of "running away to California," and how many songs have been written about doing just that? HOWEVER, on occasion, this beautiful state I call home turns into an outdoor oven, and finding ways to cool off besides staying indoors with the AC running is easier said than done.
