Yesterday was a beautiful fun day filled with plenty of sunshine ☀️!
Well, the sunshine felt so good…
But I let something very important skip my mind. 😔
It wasn’t until I was putting my little red headed – freckle faced boy to bed that I remembered! I was gazing into his sweet sleepy eyes when I noticed the red flush to his cheeks! Guilt hit me like a ton of bricks!
It doesn’t matter that it’s Febuary! That boy needed sunscreen on his face… And I forgot!
I vowed to make a fresh batch of sunscreen first thing in the morning… And I did just that!!
I melted 1/2 a cup of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of beeswax together on low heat.
I removed the pan from the fire and let it cool for about five minutes.
Then I stirred in 2 Tablespoons of Zinc.
Then I added 1 Tablespoon of Jojoba oil, 1 Teaspoon of Carrot Seed oil, and 1 Teaspoon of Red raspberry oil.
The sunscreen fit perfectly into my small wide mouth mason jar!
I will put this jar in a Ziplock bag and throw it (gently) into my purse.
*Apply often about every 2 hours! If swimming – every 1 1/2 hours.
*If the spf doesn’t seem high enough (as in skin is still pinking – you can add more zinc!)
*Everyone’s skin is different – this recipe may need tweaking to fit you and your family!
