Supplies You’ll Need to Make This Essential Oil Sunscreen

2, 8 oz Brown Glass Bottles with Pump

These dark glass bottles are great for so many DIY essential oil products. From homemade cleaning products to do-it-yourself beauty and personal care items, they are so useful. I like to have a few empty ones around the house for those last minute essential oil recipes I decide to make.

Organic Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has soo many uses in our house. In this essential oil sunscreen recipe, it provides a skin-nourishing base that’s non-toxic and the perfect carrier oil.

Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

Shea butter is right up there with coconut oil when it comes to its skin-nourishing properties. It’s also an excellent carrier oil and base for homemade sunscreen.

Zinc Oxide Food Grade Powder

Together with the sun-protective essential oils we’ve chosen, the zinc oxide is where you get your SPF protection!

100% Pure Essential Oils

Helichrysum essential oil has natural anti-inflammatory, astringent and antiseptic properties on top of its being a natural sun protectant. Myhrr is fantastic as well with many healing properties.

When it comes to essential oils, I always recommend sticking with a reputable company that provides testing for EVERY batch of oils. You also want to make sure you’re getting pure, unadulterated and undiluted essential oils. The company I trust and recommend is Rocky Mountain Essential Oils.

P.S. I’m an affiliate for these products because I love them and trust their purity!
