Home Made Sunscreen

Prep Time:

15 mins

Cook Time:




1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons shea butter (optional)

3 ounces beeswax (optional)

1 teaspoon carrot seed oil (SPF 38-40)

1 teaspoon red raspberry seed oil (SPF 28-50)

2 teaspoons peppermint essential oil (SPF 7)

1 teaspoon lavender essential oil (SPF 6)


In a pot or crockpot put in the bees wax and shea butter, allow to melt.  The add the rest of the essential oils and oils and mix well.  Pour into a cointainer (glass preferrably).  

It is liquid in heat.  You can choose your carrier between bees wax and shea butter or use both.   I prefer to not use peppermint in it if your going to apply to your face. 

You can even just do carrot seed oil by itself.
