Relieve Sunburn with Essential Oils
Mix the following in a small lotion container:
Lavender, Blue Chamomile, and Aloe Vera Gel
Many studies have been done on the healing properties of Lavender, which is probably the most common essential oil used for sunburns. Lavender has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it well-suited for sunburned skin.*
Additionally, Lavender promotes new skin growth, which enhances the healing process.*
Chamomile is another very popularly used essential oil. One of its many uses is on the skin to cleanse, soothe, and calm.* Thus, its usefulness on burns, blisters, and itchy skin. Therefore, it can be quite beneficial on sunburned skin.*
Aloe Vera Gel has a multitude of uses and contains minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and more! Its most popular use, however, has always been as a skin ointment, especially beneficial used as a home remedy for burns.
Because it is much thicker than essential oils, Aloe Vera Gel makes a wonderful “base” to add the Lavender and Blue Chamomile to make the sunburn salve recipe, above. This makes it easy to apply to sunburned skin.
All three ingredients provide many benefits to help protect and heal sunburned skin!*
