DIY Essential Oil After Sun Spray
Summer is here! We are so excited to lay on the beach and go to the fair, but with all the fun things we have planned, we can sometimes forget to reapply that SPF. Harsh sun rays can cause some serious damage if precautionary measures aren’t taken. Sun screen and a hat is always recommended, but when we start to see the red and feel the burn, unwanted peeling and skin sensitivity ensue.
A cooling after sun spray might be your best friend this summer. Aloe vera soothes the skin and causes cell regeneration, while Peppermint brings cooling relief. Last but not least, Lavender is a necessity for its pain relieving, skin healing, and anti-inflammatory properties. It works as a wonderful addition for skin issues.
Combine the ingredients below, shake before spraying and apply generously over the affected areas.
What you’ll need:
- 2 ounce spray bottle
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera
- 2 tablespoons of witch hazel
- 7 drops of Peppermint
- 13 drops of Lavender
- Polysorbate 20 (Manufacturer’s recommended amount)
