DIY Soothing Sunburn Spray

We recently had some friends visit us from the midwest and one of them got a really bad sunburn after hiking in the desert. I was completely out of aloe vera so I was bummed I couldn't help them out.

After doing some research I created an awesome sunburn soothing spray, so if you're burned after visiting the beach this will help you heal naturally.

(I wish I had this on hand when my guests were here.)


  • 4-ounce spray bottle
  • 1-ounce 100% aloe vera gel
  • 12 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 1/2-ounce witch hazel
  • 2 1/2-ounces distilled water

Refrigerate and shake before applying. (Be sure to test a small amount in the crook of your arm for 24 hours, in case of allergies)

This recipe should soothe and cut down on the healing time.
