Young Living Essential Oils

DIY Whipped Sunscreen


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!
