Sunburn season is upon us. I have the pastiest, most albino looking kids in the world. So slathering them regularly with sunscreen is a must. I am proud to say that my son has never been sunburned and my daughter…well only once. We learned the hard way that if you spend all day bent over building a sand castle in bikini , your buns get burned were your suit pulls down a little. Now, I make sure to pull down her waist band n inch or so and spray her buns. She hates it, (totally embarrassing) but better than blistered buns. Anyways, I am super good about remembering to reapply the kids sunscreen regularly, but I often manage to forget myself. Ahhhh, the life of a mom! So sometimes I get a little tender from the sun. This awesomely refreshing aloe spray is great for soothing that sun kissed skin or even just too cool off after working outside on a hot day.
How to make it:
1 1/2 tsp. lime juice
2 tsp.aloe vera sap
1/2 cup water
A few drops of peppermint oil (DIY Peppermint Oil)
1.Cut a few leaves off your aloe plant and squeeze into a table spoon measure until you gather 2 tablespoons worth of sap
2.Mix the sap with the water, lime juice and peppermint. poor into a spray bottle. Shake well before spraying.
