I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! He is risen! We had a blast at our house, and our weekend was filled with Easter festivities. It was also filled with sunshine. We went to an outdoor Easter egg hunt with lots of fun things for the kids to do like a petting zoo, train ride, and bounce house. My boys wanted to make sure they participated in every single activity there was, and by the end of the day I ended up looking like a lobster.
With summer months approaching, I wanted to make sure I made an “After Sun Spray” and kept it handy for times like this. This spray will help to soothe and cool your skin that was exposed too long to the sun. It uses oils like Lavender, Melaleuca (tea tree), and Frankincense which are wonderful at soothing skin irritations, and help to purify the skin. I’ve also added Peppermint essential oil to the mix because it really works to cool your skin.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I use doTERRA essential oils. It’s a brand I love and trust enough to use on my entire family. I highly encourage everyone to do their research and choose a brand with high standards and purity you can feel confident using on your family.
This spray can be used for all sorts of skin irritations; like overexposure to the sun, bug bites, minor burns and scrapes, and rashes. We use some version of this spray almost daily in my home. It’s so simple to make, and easy to use!
