You can choose from a variety of essential oils to add to your Natural Sanitizing Blend depending on the scent or benefits you want to experience. Floral oils are calming and support skin while citrus oils add an extra cleansing effect.

5. Natural Sunscreen

Did you know...essential oils themselves don’t offer SPF protection or meaningfully filter UV rays? 🤔 BUT pairing them with other ingredients, you can make a great, all-natural DIY sunscreen! 

The sunscreen recipe on our Outdoors Luxe Labels pairs Lavender and Frankincense with Red Raspberry Seed Oil and Non-Nano Zinc Oxide to help keep your skin happy and healthy in moderate sun exposure. 😎☀️ 

Lavender and Frankincense help support healthy skin by support a healthy inflammatory response and recovery to exposure to the elements while Raspberry Seed Oil and Non-Nano Zinc Oxide provide sun protection. 

Blended with a base (Virgin Coconut Oil, or dōTERRA's unscented lotion work great), and stored in a 2 oz jar, this sunscreen is perfect for on-the-go-use. Definitely a great DIY to keep on-hand for your outdoor adventures!

NOTE: As always, with any suncare or skincare product (even ones you make yourself), make sure to test on a small patch of skin before use and play it safe!
