With the summer months fast approaching, most of us are looking forward to getting some much-needed sun and vitamin D. However, there is the one thing we all dread about the warmer weather: the inevitable sunburn. Even with the best sunblock, sometimes a sunburn isjust impossible to avoid. They itch, peel, burn, and just look plain terrible! Fortunately one mom, Rachel from Healthy Treasures, has provided her 24-hour sunburn relief remedy. It’s all-natural, and she’s got the photos to prove it really works.
Rachel provides four recipes, each of them iseffective and only requires the two most important ingredients: lavender oil and peppermint oil. Mix 20 drops of each oil together and add about two ounces of water. Carefully dab onto the sunburned area and just wait. You can combine these two ingredients with aloe vera to create a gel, or your favorite body lotion to create a healing moisturizer.
So how does it work? The peppermint is very cooling, both ingredients are anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and soothing. Rachel’s “before” and “after” photos arestunning.
