Travis got a little bit of a sunburn a few months ago, while working on his car. I told him to wear sunscreen, but he didn't. When I say a little bit of a sunburn, I mean SEVERE. It was nothing to go over the hospital over, but it was extremely uncomfortable for Travis to wear his pants. I really just wanted him to feel better.

It just so happened that I had purchased an essential oils starter kit. I let my starter kit sit for a few months. When Travis got his sunburn, that's when I realized its many benefits. Lavender essential oils have so many uses. I looked up essential oils for sunburn on Google and VOILA!

After applying the below sunburn remedy, the next day there was a very noticeable difference in Travis's skin condition, both in appearance and the way Travis's sunburnt skin felt.



Step 1: Wet your washcloth with cold water, wring it out a bit so it's not dripping.

Step 2: Pour a tablespoon or two of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) on it.

Step 3. Gently pat your skin with the wet / ACV doused cloth. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.

Step 4: Rinse (or soak in a lukewarm bath)

Step 5: Mix 3 teaspoons of a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil, with 1 drop of lavender and 1 drop of peppermint. Lavender heals the burn and the peppermint cools the skin by releasing heat.

Step 6: Rub/massage the mixture on the sunburnt skin.

We tried this on Travis and the next day he felt a noticeable difference. Before essential oils he was barely able to endure the feeling of pants on his waistline, but the next day his skin was soothed and the redness had calmed quite a bit.

Let's backtrack a bit. I hope you don't have to seek sunburn relief. Take care of your skin by applying a sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside.

When Nicholas (almost 18) was a toddler / school age, he broke out from sunscreen. We found Alba Botanica products in the early 2000's and have been using them ever since.

This is the one we use and swear by. By the way, did you know sunscreen expires?
