Home remedies for sunburn are easy to make or apply to the body when using essential oils. And essential oils have been used for thousands of years to treat burns, including sunburn successfully!
Did you know that Lavender has tissue regeneration and healing properties that quickly relieve sunburn? Yes, lavender also reduces scarring and minimizes pain associated with sunburn!
What Types of Sun Burns can be Remedied with Essential Oils?
All types of burns will benefit from using essential oils. Sunburn is considered a first degree burn or a minor burn where only the outer skin in damaged. For second degree burns, please see the section on burn home remedies.
What Essential Oils are best for Sunburn First Aid?
Essential oils that have natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain relieving) properties are the best. Home remedies for sunburn include these oils:
My first choices would be Lavender, LavaDerm Spray or Australian Blue. They are all excellent options. Apply them NEAT (undiluted) directly on the sunburn or dilute accordingly.
If it is a large area, or hard to reach place like on your back, then LavaDerm Spray may be a good option. It contains lavender aloe vera and trace minerals; and is very effective for cooling and hydrating the skin which is very important to healing any kind of burn. Keep it in the refrigerator and it will stay nicely chilled and will be super refreshing!
Or, make your home remedies for sunburn!
Here is a recipe for a Sunburn Spritzer:
Place it in a dark glass spray bottle. Shake and spray your sunburn! Please be careful to use the best quality aloe vera you can find. Aloe vera that has synthetics will dry out your skin and will not help your skin heal from the burn!
What Essential Oils do I use to Prevent Peeling?
Peeling usually comes from the fact that the skin has blistered. If a sunburn is that severe, then review the section on second degree burns and follow that procedure.
Usually this happens because the skin becomes extremely dehydrated; and this is where drinking plenty of water and applying LavaDerm can really help. LavaDerm also contains trace minerals that rehydrate the skin. It is an amazing product and I personally always keep it in my beach bag!
Are there Essential Oils that Prevent Sunburn?
Yes, there is essential oil that acts as all natural sunscreen. Best of all, essential oils are organic and chemical free; and don't clog up your skin or harm your body! And you can make a all natural sunscreen oil at home. Click here for natural sunscreen oils that fit in this category.
