This homemade lotion is filled with skin healing ingredients. Shea butter, olive oil and coconut oil are of course excellent natural moisturisers. Aloe Vera is the most common natural remedy for sunburnt skin, well-known for its healing and soothing properties and useful for helping to reduce the sting in the burn. We also use lavender essential oil as it is great for healing, cooling and soothing irritated skin.It smells great too!
In a bowl, put all of the ingredients and mix into a thick creamy paste. Pour into a jar or pot and use it right after sunbathing and sun exposure.
Note: Store in the fridge or a cool spot for up to one month.
