Homemade Sunscreen


Apply as often as needed to cover skin.  You will have to test it out to see how your skin does with this.  We are able to use it for a couple hours in the sun and get the protection we need!


1/2 C Olive Oil

1/2 C Raw Coconut Oil

1/4 C Beeswax Pastilles

2 Tbs Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

2 Tbs Organic Shea Butter

12+ drops of Helichrysum Essential Oil (We also added 5 drops of Lavender, 5 drops of Jasmine just to make it smell pretty!)

2 Tsp Carrot Seed Oil

Combine Olive Oil, EVCO, Beeswax and Shea Butter in a double boiler and stir until melted.  (It's going to get thick and sticky so use a whisk that you don't mind cleaning thoroughly or setting aside to use for projects like this!)

Remove from heat and let cool for a couple of minutes.  Add Zinc, the essential oils, and Carrot Seed oil and stir well.  

Continue to stir occasionally as the mixture cools.  Transfer into your desired container!  Next time I'll put it in a squeezy condiment container so we can just squirt it onto our skin!
