Bug Repellant Sunscreen Recipe

Spring is Here and so are the Bugs and the Sun ! I like to garden in the Spring, but I really don't like dealing with those annoying flies and too much sun. This sunblock I developed myself, is all natural, made with the finest ingredients and is actually beneficial to your skin. I like to call this my miracle sunblock Smile The Sunblock has about an SPF 24-30 and is semi waterproof too.
Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond oil (or combo with another oil)
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Beeswax (add less if you want it creamier)
2 Tablespoons Zinc Oxide
2 Tablespoons of Neem Powder
2 T Jojoba Oil
20 drops of Essential Oil (Optional)



NOTE: avoid using citrus oils, such as bergamot, orange, lemon or lime. They may cause unpleasant skin reactions when exposed to the sun. They also reduce a sunscreen's effectiveness.

The Beeswax makes it semi waterproof but it should be reapplied after exposure to water.

Directions:

1. Put all ingredients except the Zinc Oxide and Neem Powder in a glass jar.

2. Place the glass jar in a pot of water on a stove and bring to a boil.

3. Let the wax melt and the oils heat up.

4. Once the wax has melted, carefully remove from the boiling water

5. Add the Zinc Oxide and Neem Powder and stir, and then pour into storage container and let cool before applying.
