This is my favourite summer DIY! I keep this handy little bottle in the fridge and spray it on my skin a few times per day, after spending some time in the sun. It contains some wonderful healing (lavender and helichrysum) and cooling essential oils.
The “official” recipe comes from this book, although I tend to eyeball things plus I added some water. I just had a small bottle so I cut down the essential oils to about 15 drops.
- 25 drops lavender essential oil
- 25 drops helichrysum essential oil
- 25 drops peppermint essential oil
- Macadamia nut oil (you can use any natural oil)
Add this to your sun safety preventative measures and keep your skin happy all summer 😉
Now go outside and catch some rays…
