My favorite time of year.
Where the air is humid and things are moist.
The sun and I have a respectful relationship.
First off, I am a Heliophilia.
This means a desire to stay in the sun. A lover of sunlight….
With this mountain living I have been doing I am searching for ways to nourish my skin when I go to the beach.
This past ten days I have been in mosquito and sun land.
Here’s a new recipe for sun and bugs inspired by Bauman College.
You are going to love it!
*1/2 cup of spring water
*2 tbsp. of pure aloe vera gel (fresh from your garden is best)
*10 drops of organic tea tree essential oil
*10 drops of organic peppermint essential oil
*topical vitamin E oil
*5 drops of lavender essential oil
You will find that the peppermint will soothe the skin while the tea tree oil will help with itching. Aloe is essential for moisture and helps with any pain you might have if you are burned! Vitamin E is the best for healing any bites from the buggies and is full of antioxidants so all those free radicals and environmental damage that the sun can cause by boosting your collagen and preventing wrinkles! Magic.
Mix it up and put it in a spray bottle and use it daily (multiple times is great!) I love it as a facial toner to spritz a few times a day. Let me know how you are enjoying yours.
