Soothing After Sun Spray

My family spent the holiday weekend at the beach and we were blessed with perfect weather. Lots of sunshine and ocean breezes! Unfortunately, along with all the sunshine, came some “sunkissed” skin, despite the sunscreen.

Thank goodness for the Soothing After Sun Spritzer! With its healing Aloe Vera juice, silky and moisturizing coconut oil, and blend of Lavender, Peppermint and Tea Tree essential oils, our tender skin was refreshed, nourished and moisturized and the red quickly diminished.

Here’s the recipe:

You Will Need:

  • 16-ounce glass spray bottle
    1 cup aloe vera juice
    1/4 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
    1 teaspoon vitamin E
    8 drops Lavender essential oil
    8 drops Peppermint essential oil


Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into spray bottle, shake well, and apply generously to skin that needs cooling. Be sure to avoid spraying around the eyes, as it will sting.

Re-apply as often as needed. I re-sprayed every half hour or so at first.
