Natural Sunburn Remedy Recipe using Sanatio Naturalis Essential Oils.
We all know we shouldn’t get burnt but somehow, sometimes we get caught out and get our skin red and sore and burnt raw. If this happens to you there are some natural remedies you can try.
A natural cooling agent, Peppermint oil works as a pain killer and provides relief for tender sunburn with its cooling sensation. Diluted with Aloe Vera or other oils, it can be applied topically as a paste directly onto the burnt skin for immediate relief. And your sun burn will heal faster too, due to Peppermints antimicrobial properties, it speeds up skin healing, allowing your body to recover faster.
