What could be more quintessentially summer than a pool party! You can soak in the summer sun while you relax on a floaty, dangle your feet in the water or do a cannonball off the diving board. But as fun as it is to spend time at the pool, your skin might be in need of some extra care. Maybe you spent too much time in the sun without refreshing your sunscreen or maybe the chlorine has left your skin feeling dry and irritated. Treat your skin to this moisturizing and soothing Post Pool Party Soothing Gel. It starts by combining our ultra-soothing Aloe Jelly, which already works wonders for sunburns, with Sunflower Oil, which is packed with vitamins A, B, D, and E for extra skin conditioning. Plus Lavender, Manuka, and Sandalwood essential oils all bring their calming, soothing, and restorative properties to the mix.

Thank you for the recipe. I’ve been using oregano oil to help alleviate sunburn. I look forward to trying this recipe soon.
For the Post Pool Party Soothing Gel, if you have Lavender Aloe Jelly, do you still add the essential oils? Can you sub sunflower for meadowfoam or Almond?
If you have Lavender Aloe Jelly, you can leave out the Lavender Essential Oil and just add the other two oils. And you can definitely substitute Sunflower for either of the carriers you have on hand.
Where you get the vitamin e oil? Which brand?
You can find vitamin E on Amazon!
i got mine at Walmart
