MYO Suntan / Sunscreen Lotions & Sunburn relief recipes
Natural Protection Cream Recipe
3 tbsp. unrefined sesame oil
1 tbsp. unrefined avocado oil
unrefined jojoba oil
1 tbsp. walnut or almond oil
1 tbsp. shea butter
1 tsp. beeswax
1 tsp. soy-lecithin liquid
aloe vera gel
2 tbsp. rose or lavender water
1/2 tsp. borax powder
20 drops carrot-seed essential oil
3-5 drops coconut fragrance oil (optional)
Melt the first 4 oils, butters and beeswax in a double boiler over medium heat until just melted. Add the soy-lecithin, and stir to blend. Remove from heat.
In a small saucepan, gently warm the aloe vera gel and rose or lavender water, and stir in borax powder until dissolved.
Remove from heat.
When the oil and water mixtures are still warm to the touch and about the same temperature, set the small saucepan into a bowl of ice. Drizzle in the oil mixture while mixing rapidly with a small whisk; a cream will quickly form.
Add carrot-seed essential oil and coconut fragrance oil, if desired; blend thoroughly.
