Natural Remedies for Sunburn

Posted · Add Comment

Continuing our discussion on the benefits of the sun… what do you do if you get burned?

Well I haven’t been sunburned in a long, long while. But if I do return a little pink from an activity there are a couple of solutions.

Sunburn Spray
You Will Need:

  1. 1/3 cup witch hazel (where to buy witchhazel)
  2. 3 tablespoons pure aloe vera gel (I like to use aloe from my plant. You can buy gel here)
  3. 10 drops of pure lavender essential oil (my preferred brands)
  4. 10 drops of pure peppermint essential oil
  5. 4 oz (or larger) spray bottle (you can find those here)

Aloe Vera
We keep an aloe vera plant in the summer and we just pluck a leaf off and use the aloe juice to rub on any part that is feeling a little “over done.”

Apple Cider Vinegar
Mix it 1 part ACV to 2 parts water and mist it on the burned area. You will smell like a vegetable salad, but it will take the heat out.

Head over to and share your fav remedy.
