Burn Bliss Sun Relief Essential Oil DIY

It happens to most of us — we spend the day outside, soaking up the sun and having a great time, when all the sudden, that familiar, uncomfortable burn begins. Inevitably, anyone around you has to confirm your fear: “Whoa! Nice sunburn!”

While it’s easy to get caught up in the immediate and cosmetic discomfort of a sunburn, remember that the real damage done to your skin can take months for your body to repair. While the pain of a sunburn can last about a week, it actually takes your skin months to fully heal itself and protect that freshly exposed and sensitive skin.

Since a young age, we’ve all been taught how to stay safe in the sun, but it’s almost too easy to forget or just not take the time to do it. Prevention is key to avoid a sunburn, so let’s go over some inexcusably easy steps to take to keep your skin safe. Ladies —  before you spend the day in the sun, start your sunburn prevention by donning that big floppy hat and flowing maxi skirt. These help protect the often forgotten areas of the lips, ears, back of neck, and backs of knees — keep them covered to keep them safe! And guys, keep that ball cap on for face protection.

Also, sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. Apply it as often as the product recommends it or as often as you need it. And as soon as you feel the redness, it’s time to take action! Reduce the damage being done to the skin’s cells by covering up and giving your skin the chance to heal as quickly as possible.

Try this luxurious DIY to pamper your sunburned skin and start feeling better!

  1. i was just wondering about this! Also, do you have a bug bite itch relief blend (either DIY or available for purchase?) Bonus if it’s kidsafe. We’re trying to ward off bites altogether but they sneak through sometimes and my 6 year old needs some itch relief.

  2. I love that you are providing these diy natural recipes on the blog – I just mixed up a batch before I was this but will try this next!

  3. Definitely making this for using when my granddaughter is here. She is fair skinned and burns so easily. This smix for her.ounds like the perfect

  4. This sounds like a great item to make and keep on hand for the summer months and luckily I have everything on the list. Could anyone tell me how long these will keep for and should I keep them in the fridge for the longest possible shelf life as well? Thank you 🙂

  5. This sounds absolutely delightful and soothing. I think I’ll steep myself a bath and sip some lavender tea after my next go ’round with the sun! 🙂

  6. What a great recipe! Have everything I need except the sandalwood! Maybe I can get a bottle during CAM. Would this be safe with kids? My granddaughters came back from beach with sunburn even though they used sunscreen. I purchased the organic calendula petals and lavender buds from Amazon.
    Also, could I use empty tea bags if I don’t have muslin?
    Thanks for a great recipe! Love Plant Therapy!

  7. Thats an awesome recipe…now to look for some of this stuff. With my husband being very Irish, he burns so easily that we go thru so much sunscreen and aloe each summer to relieve the burn.

  8. That sounds so relaxing. Thanks to your blog posts and the mothers day set, you have made me a lover of aromatherapy baths.

    1. That is so wonderful, Tiffany! Thank you for sharing — we so glad you are enjoying aromatherapy baths 🙂

  9. I need to make this! Tonight! We were at the waterslides all day today!! Great timing! Thank you Plant Therapy!!!!

  10. Looking forward to trying this sunburn relief! Want to be able to go for my hikes and not have to put on sunscreen with chemicals, but often get a little red by the end of the day. Hope this works!

    1. Black tea leaves you can buy at any grocery store in the tea section. Lavender buds can typically be found at local health food stores.

    2. Amanda. I get my black tea from Harney & Sons… really nice teas and they have free shipping just like Plant therapy. I’ve purchased Lavender on Amazon. I made sure to look for food grade. It was $13.99 for 8 oz which is a lot. I mix it with chamomile flowers for a relaxing tea. Also, I use it in soap making. I’m definitely going to try this recipe as soon as I get some Calendula petals.
