Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Having very fair skin and an outdoor job, it seems like I always end up with at least one sunburn every summer. Fortunately, essential oils offer a natural way to help relieve the discomfort and assist healing of the skin.

After cooling my skin with cold water, I apply a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil and (gently!) rub it in. I also keep my own mixture on hand to continually apply during the healing process. This mixture consists of aloe gel (the clear kind), Lavender Essential Oil and Peppermint Essential Oil. I keep this "sunburn" mixture in the fridge and it is very cooling to sunburned skin! Not only does it provide the healing qualities of aloe and Lavender, but also the cooling and pain-relieving properties of Peppermint. Plus, it smells fantastic! This mixture is very safe for kids, too.
