It’s Summer time, and sometimes the sun isn’t so nice to our skin. Even with proper sunscreen usage, there are going to be some times when our skin just gets over-heated or sun burned. When this happens, it’s good to go on the offense and have some DIY cooling lotion handy! This lotion is not only easy to make, but the ingredients work together to soothe, moisturize, and repair the damaged and hot skin.

Ingredients –

Steps –

  • Place the solid coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and lavender essential oil into a mixing bowl.
  • Using a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid, mix on medium-high for 6-7 minutes. Once the mixture turns white and forms peaks, you know you are done mixing!
  • Place mixture in a sealed glass container and store in a cool place, preferably under 75 degrees so it does not completely melt. You can even put some of the mixture into a glass roller ball container to have a liquid version of the recipe on you for relief on the go!

Depending on where you live, your coconut oil may be in a liquid state. In warmer temperatures, coconut oil easily melts. If this is the case with yours, go ahead and stick it in the fridge for a few minutes before mixing. This will stiffen up the coconut oil into a solid state! Your finished product can be stored in the fridge as well. It will be in a more solid state, but the coolness will only add to the relieving affects this mixture will have once on your skin!

Coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and lavender oil all have skin-soothing and healing properties. Aloe vera gel will provide a cooling effect, while creating a protective barrier on the skin. Lavender oil will not only smell great, it soothes skin and helps to soothe any itching that may occur due to dry skin. Because of these fantastic properties, this mixture will also be helpful with soothing bug bites.
