DIY Cooling Sunbrun Spray

It’s Summertime!  I know for me, summer means more time spent outdoors with family and friends.  Down here in the south my days are filled with sunshine, relaxing by the pool or exploring the beach.  I personally am not a big sun worshiper.  Often my friends made fun of me when I was younger for always hiding from the sun with loads of sunscreen, a sun hat, a shade umbrella or a light long sleeve shirt.  Being a creator of habit, I haven’t changed much since I have gotten older.  Still once in awhile I forget to reapply sunscreen or cover up when outside, and that unwanted sunburn strikes me or the kids.  I am sharing this organic remedy to treat a sunburn.

DIY Cooling Sunburn Spray
¼ Cup of Organic Brewed Green Tea
¼ Cup of Aloe Vera Juice
¼ Teaspoon of Lavender Essential Oil
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl, then pour into a spray bottle.
Generously spray on all over sunburned skin.  Shake well before each application, refrigerate, and use within three weeks.

The green tea, aloe juice, and lavender essential oil help cool the sunburn and promote skin healing.
Do you have a natural sunburn remedy?

  1. Help me I'm allergic to aloe vera. This is a great tonic if I weren't.

  2. Sounds great and probably goes on easier than the raw aloe goo we use.

  3. This is such a great sounding remedy! I'll mix up a batch to keep on hand for the rest of the summer. Seems like the young adults (my own daughter) included are notorious for not using sunscreen.

  4. This is awesome. We have used green tea bags, but making it a spray with the aloe vera and lavender we be even nicer. :)
