DIY Sunburn Spray

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So our son and his girlfriend went kayaking a couple of weeks ago. Check out his back where she put some sunscreen on her hand and then just set her hand on his back. Crazy but at least we know the sunscreen works!

When our son got home, he immediately asked where our homemade Sunburn Spray was. We’d used it all up last year so Wade quickly made up another batch. We were so glad we had something that he could use to take the heat off! It made him feel so much better and look at the results the next morning! This recipe takes just minutes to make and gave some much needed relief.

 

Melaleuca

Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has a range of applications. One of the things I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. Sometimes I put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo, or give myself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Coconut Oil.

Melaleuca also promotes a healthy immune function and helps to protect us against environmental and seasonal threats. When I feel I need extra support, I make a capsule with a couple of drops each of Melaleuca, Oregano (or Thyme), OnGuard and Lemon. Works like a charm!
