HOMEMADE: After Sun Spray

Aloe, Lavender

Having an aloe plant in my home is a must. After a long summer day being outside and enjoying the beautiful weather, I come home and instantly head to our plant for some fresh aloe to put on my body. The gel texture feels great and calms any burn I may have received from the sun.

I recently went to my favorite local aromatherapy shop and picked up some lavender oil. Lavender (like aloe) has calming properties and is helpful for burns. Now instead of just aloe, I use a homemade after sun spray with lavender that feels lighter on the body and is a bit more refreshing. The lavender and aloe mixed together smells amazing! Find the recipe below and make you own homemade after sun spray.
