Homemade Sunscreen

This summer use all natural sunscreen without the extra add ins and toxins that can be found in typical sunscreen. This recipe is not only great for protecting your skin from the sun but also at giving your skin moisture that the sun takes out of it.
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tbs. Shea Butter
  • 3-5 drops Jojoba Oil
  • 3-5 drops Vitamin E Oil
  • 15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
  • 1 Tbs. Zinc Oxide Powder
First, Add coconut oil, Shea butter and jojoba oil to a double boiler. (If you don’t have a double boiler put a pan with water in it on the stove, turn the stove onto medium or medium low heat and then put a metal bowl on top of the pan with the water in it.) Heat gently until Shea Butter is just melted.
Second, remove from double boiler and allow to cool a little. Then add Zinc Oxide Powder, Vitamin E Oil (which can be taken from capsules), Jojoba Oil, and Essential Oils.
Third, Stir well to combine. Store in a dark jar in the fridge. Lasts 6 months.
When using this sunscreen apply liberally to skin exposed to the sun. Reapply every few hours or more often if swimming or sweating.
