Homemade Sun Shield

Homemade Sunshield

2 oz Coconut Oil (fractionated coconut oil or melted over low heat in pot)

1 oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 oz Aloe Vera Juice

10 drops Helichrysum 

8 drops Lavender

6 drops Peppermint

5 drops Roman Chamomile 

1 Tbsp. Zinc Oxide

Place all ingredients into a large spray bottle and shake bottle well to mix ingredients thoroughly. Spray on skin every 1-2 hours as needed for sun protection.


  1. This looks fabulous. Wish I'd known about it long ago!

  2. Wow, I have all of that. I am looking forward to trying this. I made my own cream last year, but spraying it on is so much easier. Thanks so much for sharing this on Oil me up Wednesday at My Lamp is Full

  3. Are there substitutes for the helichrysum and chamomile? I don't have either of these yet and we're going camping next week.
