Fun in the Sun

FUN IN THE SUN
 
Tis the season for hot, sunshine-filled days, and we want to soak in every second of it  while staying safe and healthy. Here are our top three necessities for safe, healthy fun in the sun! 
Mineral Sunscreen 
Hands-down, the Young Living Mineral Sunscreen is our favorite sunscreen. It checks all of our boxes -- reef-safe, effective, all natural, great for all skin types, non-nano zinc, won't clog pores. What else is there?! 
  • Quick tip!! Make application easy with this hack!
    • Continuous spray bottle
    • Bottle of YL Mineral Sunscreen
    • 5 Tbl fractionated coconut oil or ClaraDerm Spray
    • 20 drops Carrot Seed essential oil
    • Optional: 30 drops Citronella essential oil
    • Add all items to the spray bottle and shake well!
    • Quick tip!! For easy application (especially with kids!), you can dab sunscreen on the face and blend in with a makeup blending brush! Alternatively, dab the sunscreen onto the brush, then apply to the skin.
LavaDerm After Sun Spray 
LavaDerm After Sun Spray is your first aid kit BFF!! LavaDerm brings relief from the pain and itching of minor burns, cuts, sunburns, scrapes, insect bites, or really any minor skin irritation. Whether or not your skin has seen a little too much sun or wind, this spray will help you feel soothed and refreshed! Apply after a day outdoors for a sigh of relief.
  • Quick tip!! If you need some relief ASAP and don't have any LavDerm on hand, try this DIY After Sun Spray:
    • Small continuous spray bottle
    • 25 drops each Lavender, Frankincense
    • 18 drops each Tea Tree, Peppermint
    • V-6 Vegetable Oil carrier or carrier of choice
Insect Repellent or Insect Repellent Wipes 
No one wants to come in from a wonderful day outdoors with tons of itchy bites from outdoor pests… and you won't have to with the Young Living Insect Repellent! This liquid formula effectively prevents mosquito, flea, and tick bites, so you can enjoy the great outdoors worry free!! 
  • This incredible formula is gentle enough for the little ones, yet effective. It is also available as wipes, which makes application on the go super easy!! 
  • Grab the Insect Repellent bottle and make it into a spray for easy use:
    • Continuous spray bottle
    • Bottle of YL Insect Repellant
    • 3 Tbl fractionated coconut oil or ClaraDerm Spray
    • 20 drops Citronella essential oil
    • Add all items to the spray bottle, but add the insect repellent last (it will not all fit!) 
  • Quick tip! If you live in a state that has shipping exclusions for the Insect Repellant, try the wipes! Still can't order because of limitations? Add a spray top directly to your bottle of Citronella. Also try this DIY Outdoor Spray:
    • Small continuous spray bottle 
    • 25 drops each Citronella, Geranium, Lemongrass, Lavender
    • 20 drops Eucalyptus Radiata, Tea Tree
    • V-6 Vegetable Oil carrier or carrier of choice
  • Note: If you want to use a larger bottle, simply double the recipe. Also if you feel you need a stronger formula or are extremely susceptible to outdoor pests add more Citronella, Lemongrass and/or Geranium!
