Homemade sunburn cream August 31, 2012

Filed under: Bees,Natural Healing — revivalnatural @ 1:07 pm


3-4 inch piece off an aloe vera plant, slice open and scrape the gel from inside. You will be using the gel and get rid of the skin. You can substitute 1 Tbsp of pure aloe gel if you do not have an aloe plant.

1 Tbsp coconut oil(unrefined, organic if you can find it), warm enough to be liquid(goes liquid around 76 F)

1 tsp raw honey
10 drops lavender essential oil
Whip aloe, coconut oil, and honey together in a small glass bowl with a small whisk.  Add in Lavender EO and stir.  Cover entire area of burn liberally.  To store for later use put a cover over it (plastic wrap would do) and set it in the fridge.  Use within a week.  This does wonders for a sunburn or any other minor burn.

Any Thoughts?
