But it is summer and we are able to get outside, and bask in the lovely rays of sunshine from our Blessed Mother Earth, soaking up her energy and much-needed Vitamin D.
But some of us indulge perhaps a little too much, and others – like me – burn even when wearing sun protection. If that happens, try this DIY natural sunburn relief, which can be scaled up to a larger batch if needed. But to keep it fresh – especially in the heat – it’s best to make in small batches and store in the fridge when not using (which also gives a lovely cooling relief!).
Aloe and Lavender Sunburn Relief
To a two fluid ounce spray bottle or mister add:
- 1.5 ounces (3 tbsp) distilled or boiled water (cooled of course!)
- .5 ounces (1 tbsp) Aloe Vera juice or gel
- 24 drops lavender essential oil (this will give a 2% dilution of EO to carrier)
- Optional: 1 or 2 caps Vitamin E oil
Enjoy the soothing and healing properties of aloe and lavender🌞
