DIY All Natural Sunburn Treatment

It's easy to whip up this all natural DIY Sunburn Relief Spray

At some point this summer, you may find yourself in the same boat we did: you need a sunburn treatment for sunburn relief.

This is the first summer my girls have been venturing to the pool on their own.  Before they left, I said, “You have to wear a rash guard. Here’s money for lunch.” What my teenagers heard was, “blah. blah. blah. Here’s money for lunch.

They’ve both learned I wasn’t kidding about that whole rash guard thing ~ and it took the proverbial “hard way.” Red shoulders for the both of them.

Mothers. We really do know a thing or two! {But it’s hard to gloat when you’re babies hurt. So I didn’t. I plan on gloating next year when I say, “Remember what happened last year when I told you to wear a rash guard and you didn’t? Wear your rash guard. Here’s money for lunch.”}

How can you treat a sunburn naturally? What really works? This natural sunburn remedy will relieve and soothe the sting of a bad sunburn.

Sunburn Relief Spray

You will need:

  1. Mix together all 3 ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake well.
  2. Spray onto the burned area as often as needed.
  3. Keep refrigerated and use within two weeks. Keeping it refrigerated adds to the cooling.

Also, you’ll want to make sure you are drinking 3 cups of green tea a day while you have your sunburn.

The natural antioxidants in green tea will help with the healing.

Consider trying my Spiced Green Tea, Green Tea-quila Sunrise or Green Tea Mock-Jito for a delicious way to drink it. Don’t let the names fool you. They are all family friendly.

With your leftover lavender essential oil, make my DIY Yoga Mat Cleaner. I tell ya, I’m gonna market the stuff. I end up spraying the whole classes’ mats! Make it and you can be the most popular kid in class too!

  1. I love this, thank you so much for sharing.

  2. What happens if you use gel instead of juice? I thought I had aloe vera juice, but all I have is gel.

  3. This is great! I am so sad when I see commercial bright green aloe gel products in everyones cupboards as it usually contains antifreeze… personaly I use a piece of my aloe vera plant to rub on skin for the burn and dab cold tea to slow down the skin from peeling… great post
