Sun ☀️ exposure is good, but too much of it can cause irritation. Next time you deal with discomfort from too much sun, try this after-sun soothing spray with essential oils. Lavender and Melaleuca are good for skin and soothes sunburns while peppermint has a cooling effect.
16-ounce glass spray bottle
1 cup aloe vera juice
1/4 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon vitamin E
8 drops Lavender essential oil
8 drops Melaleuca essential oil
8 drops Peppermint essential oil
Note: You can find Aloe Vera Juice at your local health food store.
Combine all ingredients in glass spray bottle.
Shake to combine.
So that time you take 3 children to the pool and lather them up with sunscreen but you neglect yourselves😩😏!! You both get sunburned. I put it on my face but obviously no where else and well James...didn't put any on. So thankful for these two gems to help give much relief to our painful sunburn. The peppermint helps cool the skin and the lavender helps heal the sunburned skin.🙌 #sunburnrelief#lavender#peppermint#lessonlearnedagain#alwaysapplysunscreen
A few days ago, I decided to test out these products from Young Living. We were at the lake in 105F weather that then rose to 112F. .
I used the sunscreen on my face and arms and left my back and legs without the sunscreen to be able to test out the After Sun spray.
Result: my face and arms got no burn but have a nice, golden tan😍 my back is a completely different story.😱 it was burned so bad I couldn't sleep! I use LavaDerm After Sun Spray on my back and it gives me instant relief. .
What I've learned: use sunscreen!!! California sun is brutal and if I had not used the sunscreen on my face, chest, shoulders, and arms, I'd be in even more excruciating pain! .
I never used sunscreen because every single one I've tried ("natural" or not) had a gross smell that I can not stand and I wasn't sure if it was helping me or hurting me more with all the chemicals used in sunscreens. .
The Young Living sunscreen barely has a smell and that is so important to me! There is a slight, earthy smell of Helichrysum, Carrot Seed and Frankincense. Same thing goes for the LavaDerm After Sun spray! Just a gentle Lavender and Helichrysum smell. .
Something else I liked is that a little bit goes a long way with this sunscreen and after sun spray. These bottles will last me this summer and possibly next too! .
The Mineral Sunscreen Lotion is made to protect your skin against UVA (aging) and UVB (cancer causing) rays. It's not greasy, goes on smoothly, is water and sweat resistant. Another important feature is that this sunscreen uses NON-nano zinc oxide (a physical UV blocker). At this time, most, if not all, sunscreens and body care product use nano particle that absorb into your skin and blood. Problem is: no ones really tested the effect of nano particles in our blood. So better be safe than sorry! .
I am excited to keep using this sunscreen and after sun spray all summer long!
These two and the Insect repeller will be very popular this summer so they will be going in and out of stock! I believe the sunscreen is in stock right now so if you can, order it asap! .
Stay safe and burn free this summer!
Still need proof that Posh works? These are my personal results after getting sunburnt and using totes Oates and Honey Honey healing body cream ONE TIME!!! Before was taken around 10 pm After was 9 am the next morning!! That's good stuff! #sunburn#sunburnrelief#allnaturalbased
Home made all natural sunburn relief!!! You can find the recipe in my story!!
🌞My face got pretty sunburnt at Warped Tour yesterday and I made up this lotion and have been putting it on my face since we got home yesterday.
🙌The redness has already toned way down. My skin is still a bit tender but thankfully this helped calm down the redness so far!!
We had an amazing day yesterday at the lake swimming, tanning and enjoying this beautiful sunny weather! However even with regular sunscreen applications throughout the day we ended up with some minor sunburns...LUCKY for us we know how to relieve that dreaded hot sunburn feeling quick with the help of LAVENDER!💜
I grabbed some coconut oil put a couple drop of lavender in my hands mixed them together and applied all over our burns! Instant relief and safe for all 3 of my kiddos!!
PRODUCT OF THE MONTH ☀️☀️☀️☀️ Aloe First was the only thing that managed to cool and soothe my partners sunburn. It's a cooling, soothing body milk that conditions hair and body and is a great way to look after your skin when it has taken a beating in the sun. ☀️
A bit of a sad panda after forgetting my sunscreen on this weekend's camping trip. Sometimes coconut oil does the trick but not in the eastern WA desert sun! Yikes! 🌵☀️🔥
Essential Oils to the rescue! I've used Lavender and Frankincense in coconut oil before and they tend to clear up burns overnight. I'll check in tomorrow with an update. Grateful for the oil magic!
Lavender is amazing for cuts, burns, skin irritations - it's calming and soothing, not just to our nervous system but to our skin as well. Frankincense is also amazing for skin irritations and helps with cellular regeneration. These aren't just luxury woo woo items - it's natures medicine in its purest form. If you need some sunburn relief or are interested in learning more about natural and nontoxic remedies, send me a message!
These products are truly my summer go to! #Repost @davidwenzelsalon (@get_repost)
It's summertime and sunburns are for sure the worst thing about it. I just got burned Tuesday, and pretty bad. If it wasn't for these three products I would be peeling by now and probably still very uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong it was painful but the relief from the products have helped. Eufora isn't just for your hair. Made with Certified Organic Pharmaceutical Grade Aloe Vera and stem cells that maximize the potency up to 1000x you know your getting the best burn aftercare. It has worked for me several times and I am now having clients saying the same thing. The proof is in the bottle! Stop by and purchase your "in the sun aftercare" trio. With continued use I have been fortunate to not peel or if I did it was so minimal you couldn't tell. #funinthesun#sunburns#sunburnsucks#sunburnrelief#sunburnt#eufora#euforastyle#euforasalon#sunrelief @euforainternational @salonservicegroup

Yesterday was #nationalhydrationday so this product is very fitting as it is hydration in the purest form for your skin. Climate Control is made of the smallest molecular weight for deepest penetration and hydration ingredients do not combine until shaken providing you with newly activated anti-aging ingredients at your fingertips. It has several uses besides just being for the face (combats #exzema , #contactdermatitis , #sunburns ), has been called "magic in a bottle" and was featured on Dr. Oz. Who wants one?? 🙋🏼
New this weekend. Sunburn Salve with organic lavender and organic peppermint essential oil. This stuff really works. After a full weekend working the farmers markets with no shade, my arms were so burnt last Sunday. I went to my trusty herbal books and found a recipe for sunburn salve. To my delight and relief it really helped. I figured I won't be the only one this summer over indulging in the much needed sunshine. So I made a batch for the market. $7 #wildwoodsgypsy Port Orford Farmers Market 9a-12p Saturday & Langlois Sunday Hotel Market 10a-2p
Confession time - I spent a very productive day in my office yesterday while my girls had a playdate and my boys played beautifully together outside all afternoon. They usually keep their t-shirts on, but right around dinner time I discovered my 10yo had been running around shirtless and Mommy forgot the sunblock! So today my sweet boy is lounging on the sofa with books and movies while I apply Lavender essential oil, fractionated coconut oil (FCO), and aloe vera all over his back and shoulders. .
Lavender is soothing to the skin and good for burns. And for Mom...some Forgive, to remind myself that I need to forgive those bad mom moments.
Sunburn? Ouch. Quick start the healing process and provide relief to your blazing skin with this Healing and Cooling Sunburn Relief Lotion. ☀️ So easy a two year old can make it (proof in the blog post). Learn how to make it yourself at dearlavender.com. Link in profile.
Oils To The Rescue -Sometimes the start of summer reminds me why I lather sunscreen on my fair skin. 😩. Usually I'm very careful, but sometimes I'm not, and then I am so grateful for my calming and healing oils! The top picture was taken the night I had too much sun exposure, and the bottom picture is 48 hours later after applying Lavender Oil & Frankincense Oil mixed in with either fractionated coconut oil or our unscented body lotion about 4 times each day. 🙌🏼. .
Summer! ☀️ It seems that every summer I get sunburned. In recent years, I have become diligent with sunscreen (I LOVE #beautycounter sunscreen!) but still burn easily if I'm not careful. DōTERRA's Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils make the perfect sunburn soothing cream. The lavender is super soothing and will help heal the burn while the peppermint is cooling! 🙌
Just take 2 TBSP's of solid organic coconut oil, add 3 drops of lavender and 1 drop of peppermint. You can do this as often as needed until it feels better. Bonus that it is kid friendly!
My wish for you this summer is loads of fun in the sun WITHOUT the burn, if you do slip up, give this a try and let me know how it works!
This is my combo that I make sure to bring on vacations 🛫! It's summertime ☀️. Sometimes I think I have enough sunscreen on my kids or myself but no, we still get burnt. 🤦🏼♀️. .
I combine the following into a 4-10 oz glass spray bottle. 💧
➡️a squirt of aloe Vera gel
➡️ 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
➡️ 5 drops of lavender
➡️ 5 drops of melaleuca
➡️ 5 drops of roman chamomile
➡️ fill with fractionated coconut oil
Not only does this usually work for the one of us that's burnt, it also feels very refreshing. I keep applying until the skin looks better. Meanwhile #enjoysummer ☀️
In the early days of summer, it can be easy to misjudge the intensity of the sun. @homegrown_adventures has a DIY recipe for Aloe Vera sunburn relief and her kiddos helped her make it straight from their aloe plants. Check out their process on her blog. || #madewithmylittlepartners

You all, I did it again... After some time outside with my family my chest and shoulders were sunburned! I'm so glad I created the Sun Kissed Soothing Cream this year! After using the cream I had no discomfort and no gross peeling after the burn! My skin feels so soft, too! Visit the link in bio for more details!
🌞Think you have to suffer through a sunburn till it heals? See my what one of my fellow consultants had to say about how Soothe can get you past it, and quickly! "This is one of my "adopted man-boys". A day in the sun ☀️ at the amusement/water park resulted in a painful hot mess 😳 I convinced him to use Rodan+Fields Soothe Moisture Replenishing Cream.

Keep Your Skin Healthy & Beautiful this Summer with Local FacialCryotherapy treatments! Despite our best efforts with sunscreen and hats, sunburn, sun exposure happens!! You swim, bike, hike, you play in the sun..... Here are tips on how cryotherapy can relieve symptoms of sunburn and will reduce the likelihood of long-term skin damage:
1. Cool the skin down after sun exposure with a localized Cryo Face/Neck treatment . The -78c vapor instantly cools the skin, reducing pain and redness. This hyper cooling halts the damaging effects of too much sun and will reduce the likelihood of permanent sun spots and wrinkles.
2. Sun exposure causes inflammation in the skin. It is important to reduce this Inflammation to shorten pain and long-term damage. Inflammation causes the skin to stretch and wrinkle and will weaken collagen. CryoFacial can instanteously reduce skin inflammation, providing pain relief and protection from permanent damage.
3. Moisturize after skin has been cooled and inflammation is reduced to avoid peeling and long-term damage. We recommend moisturizing after cryotherapy when skin is most receptive. Call the studio today 201-349-5834 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your treatment! (Takes only 15min and can be done with or without makeup on!) Follow up with one of @crushdgarage's @joannavargasnyc moisturizing sheet mask and/or @savorbeauty truffle hydrating cream and serums. All designed to keep your skin hydrated and #foreveryoung#cryotherapy#sundamage#sundamagerepair#hydratedskin#sunburnrelief
Sun Burnt review: I've been burnt a few times the past couple weeks and I decided to try this product that I found at Wal-Mart! It really worked great for relief as well as keeping me from peeling and I didn't have to use a lot of product for it to do the job so I felt it was worth the purchase. Not sticky or stinky. #SunBurnt#sunburnrelief#productrecommendation
Latest favorite product... I had a little too much fun in the sun this weekend, and my skin got a bit toasty. This serum from @skinceuticals was a life saver and completely calmed my inflamed skin.
Come visit me at Equinox Sports Club Boston for a Skin Ceuticals facial treatment... Bonus- receive full day gym access with any spa treatment 👊🏻💪🏻

It's SUMMERTIME and the livin' is easy!
Anyone else excited for summer?! This year my family and I have plans to go to the beach, SoakCity, Camp Snoopy, maybe a few Angel's games, and even flying out to my in-law's lake house in Missouri! 🤗We will be dealing with 100+ degree weather 😅, the blazing sun, and enjoying a lot of outdoor recreation time. That means potential discomfort from sunburns, bug bites and other pesky skin/hair issues. 😫 Well guess what! I've got something that will take care of all of that for you! ☀️Plexus Body Cream is a unique skin renewing cream with Spirulina Algae & Activated Charcoal.
☀️Activated charcoal powder is proven to absorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances.
☀️Great for sunburns, scars, and stretch marks!
☀️Anti-aging properties make it a great daily facial moisturizer or after shave cream!
☀️Because it contains several essential oils, many people use it as a leave in conditioner that leaves their hair silky smooth!
☀️Best thing available for bug bites or bee stings, etc.
Today officially marks the first day of our favorite season: summer! ☀️🌊 Remember to stay hydrated, stay cool, and wear some sunscreen! If you're allergic to most commercial sunscreens, SkinSAFE Products have joined with @mayoclinic to rate and make lists of #allergenfree skincare so consumers can avoid certain harmful ingredients easily. Check out our Facebook page for a link to some of their Top Allergen Safe products. Throw on some flip flops and enjoy the season ahead of us! 📸: FreePik
I'll be placing my monthly order tomorrow and would LOVE to help you get your hands on our amazing products! A few oils/products that I would recommend for summer time would have to be... Citrus Fresh🍊🍋: *Place a drop onto a cotton ball and toss it anywhere prone to stale odors, like your garbage can, shoes, closets, cabinets, basements, and vents. *Diffuse for an aroma that invites positivity and energy
Citronella: *Diffuse on your patio table to keep the Mosquitos away while you enjoy some beverages!!🍻Also use topically for additional support!!
*Use as an alternative to deodorant
*This baby is good for ALL the things...but as we enter the summer months lavender is amazing for those days when you get a little to much sun! Use in your after sun spray to relieve sunburn pain. *Use Lavender as part of your evening routine. Rub on the bottom of your feet before bed or spray your pillow with distilled water and Lavender mixed in a spray bottle.

If you find yourself scorched from the sun reach for Lavender Essential Oil, Lavender Hydrosol or Aloe Vera! (or any combination 🙌)
Lavender EO reduces the severity and scarring of burns while speeding up the healing process. It has antibacterial and antiseptic actions that will help prevent any infection. Lavender is also a calming nervine which will help cool off any irritability.✨
Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, demulcent, emollient and vulnerary actions making it one of the best choices for burns, cuts and other skin irritations. It cools + soothes the skin, reduces inflammation and helps regenerate new skin cells.
These two plants combined make for a powerful sunburn remedy. So next time you find yourself a little 'crispy' reach for these plant allies. 😎
