Fun in the Sun with Essential Oils

I created this graphic to remind everyone about the particular oils that will make your skin sensitive to sunlight: angelica, bergamot, German chamomile, grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange, and tangerine.  Also be aware of the blends that contain these oils.

But I also wanted to share the good news that carrot seed oil has a natural SPF of 38-40!  That's amazing, if you ask me!  Mix it with some coconut oil.  I've also heard that some get by with just coconut oil and lavender.

If you do get sunburned, lavender is great for healing!

Get your vitamin D, but stay safe!  And stay away from chemical sunblock products!
