Summer time is almost here!
As the weather gets warmer, we will be outside more. Which means it’s time to put sunblock on and protect our skin. I use sunblock in my skincare routine do you? Organic natural sunblocks are amazing but can be pretty pricey. I love this new recipe that uses #YoungLiving essential oils as a natural alternative. It’s made with carrot seed and lavender essential oil. AND the best part is that this natural sunscreen has an SPF of 40………NATURALLY:)
1. 2 oz Coconut Oil
2. 20 drops Carrot Seed oil
3. 10 drops Lavender oil
1. Mix coconut oil in bowl till fluffy. Approx. 5 min. You do not need to do this step but I like the way whipped coconut goes on our skin smoother.
2. Mix in 20 drops Carrot Seed oil and mix well.
3. Mix in Lavender oil 8-10 drops to act as a natural skin protectant. And makes it smell WONDERFUL!!
4. Apply before going in the sun and after swimming or sweating. Repeat application a few hours.
Coconut oil will liquefy when left in heat. Try to store in a cool place.
The carrot seed oil has a SPF of 38-40!! Coconut oil has a SPF of 2-8. This means you will have an all natural, chemical free sunscreen with a SPF of 40!
*If you are interested in trying these oils just contact me. I love sharing how you too can try these oils and change your home into a more natural, chemical free home.
