Soothe Your Sunburn with Aromatherapy: Tips for Sun-Kissed Skin

We all love basking in the sunshine, but sometimes, despite our best efforts to follow sun-safe advice, we might get a little too much sun. If you're dealing with mild sunburn, aromatherapy can offer some relief. Of course, if you have severe or extensive sunburn, or if you're experiencing other symptoms, be sure to seek medical advice. For those with mild sunburn, here are some tips on how to use Delune Pure Essential Oils to help soothe your skin.

Aromatherapy for Mild Sunburn

Lavender and/or peppermint essential oil in a cool compress or tepid bath

To soothe mild sunburn, try adding lavender or peppermint essential oil to a cool compress or a tepid bath. Remember to dilute the essential oils before adding them to the bath. Peppermint oil should not be used for children under 3 years, while lavender hydrosol is a safe option for young children.

Nourishing Body Oil for Post-Sun Exposure

A healing body oil can be applied after sun exposure to nourish and rejuvenate your skin. In a base of macadamia, sesame, or apricot kernel oil, add essential oils of geranium, lavender, and chamomile.

Prevention is Better Than Cure

Of course, it's always best to prevent sunburn in the first place. Follow these sun-smart tips:

  • Slip on protective clothing
  • Slop on sunscreen
  • Slap on a hat
  • Seek some shade
  • Slide on sunglasses

By using these aromatherapy tips and sun-safe practices, you can enjoy the sunshine while keeping your skin healthy and protected. Happy sunbathing!
