A Natural “Sunscreen” Recipe

Okay, so I’ve been wanting to make my very own natural sunscreen. So I made it using these ingredients:

10 drops of lavendar

I also used a glass jar

1 tablespoon of pomegranate oil

3/4 cup of coconut oil-fractionated

2 tablespoons of shea butter

2 tablespoons of Zinc oxide

The steps I took:

Combined 

all ingredients except zinc oxide in the jar. I then placed a saucepan with a couple inches of water on the stove over medium/low heat. Next, I placed the jar in the saucepan and stirred the contents until everything starts to melt. When the ingredients are combined, I then added the zinc oxide and stirred it really well. Fina

lly, I put the jar in a cool area. This is what I use to prevent sunburns for myself and my kiddo. 🙂

Just recently I’ve started using this diaper rash cream they just came out with because it has the ingredients that can help suppor

t against sun burns too.
