DIY Sunscreen Recipe!

DIY Sunscreen recipe!

Note: It takes about 30 minutes for the oils to be fully absorbed by the skin. The homemade sunscreen may turn into liquid if brought outside in the hot sun.

1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Coconut oil
2 Tablespoons shea butter
3 ounces beeswax
1 teaspoon carrot seed oil (SPF 38-40)
1 teaspoon red raspberry seed oil (SPF 28-50)
2 teaspoons peppermint essential oil (SPF 7)
1 teaspoon lavender essential oil (SPF 6)

Many different oils can be used. The ratio depends on how high an SPF you desire. Those needing a higher SPF can use the high SPF oils in larger quantities.

Citrus oils like grapefruit, lemon, orange, and lime are phototoxic, meaning you will get sunburned when using them as they amplify the sun.

Enjoy! 🌞
