Fill the rest of the bottle with aloe vera juice – cooling and healing to the skin – you might even want to keep a bottle ready in the refrigerator/ice chest for a quick cooling mist. Use After Sun Spray as often as you like to relieve the effects of too much sun.
Meghan’s Summer Hair Care Lotion
In a double boiler, gently melt 1 cup Shea Butter. Move to a bowl and use a mixer to blend it with 2 Tbsp Almond Oil. Will need to mix it about 10 minutes until it becomes a lotion. Then gently mix in 5 drops of each of the essential oils:
Melaleuca (Tea Tree) – a strong antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal
Lavender – promotes balance in the body, antiseptic, useful with burns or injury
Rosemary – promotes hair growth, antibacterial, and antifungal
Cedarwood – antiseptic, astringent, reduces oily secretions, psoriasis, calming
Store in a glass jar. Apply the hair care lotion to the ends of hair daily, or apply to the scalp weekly for a deep conditioning treatment. Promotes growth and a healthy glow for your hair. May also be used on psoriasis, eczema, or dry skin.
