No matter how cautious we are it seems at least one time per year someone in the family gets a painful sunburn. At Bambu Earth we stay away from chemicals and love to make homemade remedies with ingredients from the earth instead.

Our sunburn soother contains just 3 ingredients that you may already have in your home and will give you some instant sunburn relief so that by morning you'll be feeling great.

What you'll need: 

  • organic raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (we like Bragg)
  • coconut oil, softened
  • lavender essential oil

Wet a large washcloth or hand towel. Add 1 T. organic apple cider vinegar to wet towel and place over burn for instant relief. If you prefer, you can fill up the tub and add 1 c. ACV to water and soak. Your sun kissed skin will thank you!

After your bath or cloth soak, in an empty glass jar, combine 1/4 c. coconut oil and 10 drops lavender essential oil.  (We like Eden's Garden Essential Oils). Rub generously over affected areas.
