DIY Natural Sunscreen Bars

  • 1/2 cup shea butter
  • 5 Tbsp beeswax
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp Zinc Oxide
  • 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 3/4 tsp essential oil (avoid citrus oils which increase photosensitivity)

Directions: First combine the shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax in a glass bowl placed over a hot pot of water or use a double boiler. Heat on low until the ingredients are melted and fully incorporated. Remove from heat and stir in the zinc oxide, the essential oil, and the vitamin E oil. Pour into silicon molds and place in the fridge to cool for about 30 minutes. Pop out and store in tins or an airtight container. Store at room temperature.
