What’s a better way to help soothe a sunburn than Aloe? Peppermint E.O. of course! Peppermint essential oil is thought to be soothing and cooling. Hungarian Lavender blends wonderfully with Peppermint, and adds an extra touch of healing. This spray works wonders to help soothe and calm minor sunburns. For us Washingtonians who so rarely see the sun, it is a much needed addition to our cosmetic arsenal!
What You’ll Need:
10 oz Aloe Vera Liquid
2 oz Cucumber Water
3 mL Optiphen ND
10 drops Peppermint 2nd Dist. E.O.
5 drops Hungarian Lavender E.O.
(3) 4 oz Blue Glass Spray Bottles **Available only at Otion**
