When you take your family to the beach for two weeks, there will inevitably be a little sunburn involved at some point, no matter how careful you are. Fortunately, this year I was prepared with my essential oils and for the first time in over twenty years of vacationing at the beach, there were no tears or extremely uncomfortable nights.
Meet my new best friend, Sunburn Relief. Not only did it soothe the burn, taking away the pain, but it nurtured the skin and smelled great! My sunburn (yes, someone didn't get my entire back) turned into tan quickly and never peeled.
This was super easy to make. Using the Sunburn Healing Recipe in "free printables", I mixed the Peppermint, Lavender, Frankincense, Fractionated Coconut Oil and Distilled Water in a 2oz spray bottle.
When applying to the face, it is best to spray the blend into your hands first, then apply. Honestly, this little gem was a lifesaver for our family, and especially for my older teens' friends who didn't realize how quickly the Florida sun could turn you into a lobster.
Every bathroom in our home will be stocked with a Sunburn Relief spray bottle from now on, since we've discovered you don't have to be sunburned to be nurtured by these incredible essential oils!
