Homemade DIY Sunscreen Recipe:
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure aloe (preferably organic) – it should be globby, like it came fresh out of the plant.
- 20 drops carrot seed oil OR raspberry seed oil – (raspberry seed oil has a higher SPF if that is what you are looking for)
- 5 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 capsules of Vitamin E oil (break open the capsules) or hemp seed oil (2 tbsp)
- 5 drops of Lavender oil
- 2 Tablespoons Zinc Oxide (purchase a non-nano version that won’t be absorbed into the skin. This makes a natural SPF of 20+ or more. Make sure not to inhale the Zinc Oxide- use a mask if necessary!
NOTE: Please omit zinc oxide from the recipe to make a truly natural and toxic free version of this sunscreen, especially during preparation. Zinc oxide can affect the lungs and reproductive system if inhaled. Replace the zinc oxide with 1 tablespoon of avocado oil which helps increase the sun protection factor (SPF).

Nobody wants to get burned, but keep in mind there are many times that we don’t need sunscreen. Most folks are deficient in vitamin D and could use at least 20 minutes outdoors, in the direct sunlight each day to give their body a much needed boost of vitamin d.
