Homemade Natural Sunburn Relief (After-Sun) Spray

June 3rd, 2013 | Posted by Angela Roberts in Going Greener | Homeopathic Remedies

My family lives in Florida.  I am married to a surfer and we have five beach loving children.  We try to avoid sunburns but sometimes they simply happen.  I like to treat my families sunburn naturally.  I have several homemade natural sunburn remedies that help to provide relief from nasty sunburns but one of our favorites is my homemade natural sunburn relief spray.Homemade Natural Sunburn Relief Spray


I keep this sunburn relief spray on hand at all times.    The ingredients are rose water, aloe vera, witch hazel, and lavender.   Witch hazel is great for healing damaged skin so treating a sunburn with it can lessen your skin’s healing time.  The lavender essential oil not only provides relief it also helps to prevent peeling which can allow you to keep your tan!  Rose water is great for healing and soothing sun burnt skin.  And aloe vera includes power anti-inflammatory agents that instantly cool sun burnt skin.    Aloe vera also include aloectin B which stimulates the immune system.   This spray provides instant relief and begins healing your damaged skin instantly.

 Sunburn Relief Spray:

  • 1/4 cup rose-water (or distilled water)
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel (the pure stuff not the green goo at the drug store!)
  • 1 tablespoon of witch hazel (with NO alcohol)
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil

Combine all of the ingredients in a spray bottle and apply as needed.

I really hope that you and your family don’t suffer from sunburn but if you do I highly recommend using this sunburn relief spray if you do.  Make sure if you head to the beach stick this spray in your cooler!
