This natural burn relief spray recipe was created for a friend with breast cancer to help soothe the pain caused by radiation treatment and promote healing. However, you'll find this burn relief spray also works great on run of the mill sunburns.

This natural burn relief spray recipe was created for my dear friend, Bambi Godkin, who is currently fighting breast cancer, to help soothe the pain caused by radiation treatment and promote healing. However, you’ll find this burn relief spray also works great on just straight forward, run of the mill sunburns.

Like my natural neem butter recipe, which I also created for Bambi, my natural burn relief spray recipe also includes both arnica infused oil and neem oil. Arnica, like neem oil, not only has analgesic properties, but it also helps with inflammation. Arnica infused oil is commonly used in products to help relieve pain caused by sprains, bruises and other injuries. However, keep in mind it should not be used in open wounds.

Natural Burn Relief Spray Recipe

Ingredients:

2.75 oz. arnica infused fractionated coconut oil
.8 oz. shea nut oil
.1 oz. 100% neem oil
.1 oz. vitamin E oil
23 drops lavender essential oil
8 drops tea tree oil
8 drops peppermint essential oil
6 drops patchouli essential oil

Instructions:

To make this natural burn relief spray, you’ll begin by making your Arnica infused oil. I infused mine in fractionated coconut oil to keep this natural burn relief spray recipe from feeling greasy. Simply fill the bottom half of a mason jar with Arnica flowers then cover with fractionated coconut oil. Seal and store in a cool, dark location, turning occasionally for several weeks. Or you can speed up the process by gently heating the fractionated coconut oil and Arnica flowers in a double boiler for an extended time on the stove over low to medium-low heat. Then strain with cheesecloth before use. (See how it’s done in this post on how to make a homemade chamomile balm.) Alternately, you can also purchase Arnica Herbal Oil which is made with Arnica infused olive oil and a touch of vitamin E.

Using a digital scale weigh out the arnica infused oil, shea nut oil, neem oil and vitamin E into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Stir to combine.

Next, use a graduated transfer pipette to add the essential oils. Mix again to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, then use a funnel to pour into a 4 oz. glass bottle.

Screw on a fingertip mister, then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

To use, simply spray onto affected area and gently massage into skin.

I have sort of a love/hate relationship with my bathroom. On one hand, people do some pretty disgusting things in there and I’m usually the one who ends up cleaning it. On the other hand, a properly maintened bathroom can be a place of refuge. Especially on days like today where I had to bow out of work due to fibro pain. A tub full of hot water and some Epsom salts certainly can do a lot to not only reduce the level of pain I’m having, but relax my mind at the same time. So for those of you who don’t run screaming from your bathroom, but choose rather to turn it into an oasis, here a few simple, DIY bath and body projects you can whip up for loving your skin and calming your mind. And, once you get started you may never want the pampering to end, so I suggest starting a panty in a cool, dry location full of staples you may need including all natural Castile soap, organic salts and butters, organic herbs and essential oils and more from Mountain Rose Herbs.

After Sun Skin Care Recipes

It seems as if a large number of my friends on facebook have been posting about some rather serious sunburns as of late. Of course, the best way to prevent this is to lather on the sunscreen BEFORE you go out in the sun. In case you forgot though, or the sun was being extra tricky that day, I thought I’d share some after sun skin care recipes on caring for your sunburns.

Many years ago I created a Sun and Skin Soother Cream as an after sun cream. I shared the recipe for this handmade cream on my blog a few years back and transferred it over to my new blog when I moved it in 2009. You can still find that recipe here.

My Sun and Skin Soother Cream was the original idea behind my Lavender and Peppermint Foot Cream Recipe before I expanded on it and changed a few things. If you want a richer after sun cream, you can use my Lavender and Peppermint Foot Cream Recipe with a few changes. Depending on how sensitive your skin is you may want to omit the peppermint essential oil and the tea tree oil. The remaining ingredients of the recipe will make an extra nourishing cream that will really moisturize and help relieve your burn. The shea and cocoa butters, vitamin E, and avocado oil will penetrate and moisturize your parched skin and help it to heal while the glycerin and beeswax will help lock that moisture in. The addition of lavender essential oil and aloe butter will help to soothe the burn and the Restorative Skin Oil is just the icing on the cake though it is optional as well. You can find that recipe here.

If you’d rather opt for an after sun lotion, Soap Queen has a great recipe for making a Healing, Soothing Sunburn Lotion. Note that this particular recipe, however, does require a scale as you’ll be weighing your ingredients rather than measuring them out. It yields five 4oz. bottles so you can make some for yourself, your family and your friends to carry with them and slather on whenever the burn gets to be too much.
Healing, Soothing Sunburn Lotion Recipe
(Recipe courtesy of Soap Queen Blog.)
 
Ingredients:
18 oz. Aloe Vera Water
1.2 oz. Shea Butter
1.7 oz. Sweet Almond Oil
1 oz. Avocado Oil
1.2 oz. Emulsifying Wax
1 oz. Stearic Acid
.2 oz. Phenonip
.1 oz. German Chamomile
.1 oz. Lavender Essential Oil

You can also buy the Lotion Kit here and substitute the water portion with Aloe Vera (gel) Water.

Tools:
Digital scale
Stick Blender
one 16 oz. wide-mouth container
one 32 oz. wide-mouth container
Five 4 ounce bottles

Why German Chamomile? German Chamomile has a high azulene content. Azulene helps calm skin inflamation and decrease redness. Lavender is useful for helping to reduce the sting in the burn and the aromatherapy properties may help to provide emotional stability during the painful sunburn recovery period. Aloe Vera Gel (water) is a well known healing and soothing plant for all kinds of common skin issues, from cuts to bruises to sunburns.
