You will want to apply instantly after you have spent any time out in the sun. It will help to condition your skin. But it is especially important to apply instantly after sunburn. And continue to apply every few hours or whenever the sunburn is causing pain, feels dry or itches. Not only will your skin look and feel amazing, but it will also smell amazing! It is very light but refreshing at the same time. You can store the jars sealed in a cupboard away from sunlight. It actually lasts a long time and still remains potent enough to soothe the skin. Or for some extra soothing store one in the fridge to stay cold. 


Lavender Essential oil is known to be a great healer for all kinds of skin ailments such as bug bites, itching, stretch marks and more. It is also perfect for Sunburns. It calms the skin and helps it heal faster than aloe vera gel alone.

Lavender Essential Oil also reduces the amount of peeling and itching you will suffer after a sunburn if you apply immediately. Frequent use can also reduce the amount of scarring.

Peppermint Essential Oil is an instant soother. It helps stop your skin from continuing to burn. But it also has an instant cooling effect that helps your skin from hurting. It penetrates and soothes the pain.

Together the Lavender and Peppermint oils help the Aloe Vera gel to instantly

Stop the excessive pain from the sunburn

It allows the sunburn to turn into a tan instead of peeling.
