Do-It-Yourself Sunscreen 

Sunscreen Stick with Zinc

Ingredients:

1 oz. oil blend (use any blend of raspberry seed oil, carrot seed oil, wheat germ oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, hemp oil or avocado oil)

1 oz. beeswax (adds waterproof properties)

1 oz. butter blend (shea, mango or cocoa butter)

1 tsp. vitamin E oil

0.36 oz. zinc oxide powder (wear a mask when working with this)

30 drops of essential oils (optional)

Directions:

In a double boiler over low heat, melt the oils, beeswax and butters. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly prior to adding the vitamin E oil, zinc oxide powder and essential oils. Stir until zinc oxide is dissolved. Pour into a push-up or roll-up dispenser. Allow to cool and harden overnight. During times of heavy sun exposure or swimming, reapply often.
