Soothe sunburned skin & dandruff

Calm and soothe sunburn and dandruff. Hair, skin and body. My own homemade recipe for soothing a sunburned skin and calming dandruff is with organic avocado oil, tea tree oil and lavender oil.
I only use organic and pure oils and products as the non organic cheap items are mainly  synthetic and will not contain the healing, soothing and moisturizing properties the skin needs.


4 tbs avocado oil
4 drops lavender oil
4 drops tea tree oil

Preferrably only mix enough for one treatment but if you want to prepare more make sure you keep it in an amber glass bottle and store out of sunlight to protect the essential oils.

- For sunburn: Apply to the sunburned areas avoiding eyes and intimate areas.

- For dry dandruff and a flaky scalp: Use every 5-7 hair wash. First wash your hair with a mild and hydrating organic shampoo, then apply the mixture to the scalp gently massaging. Leave in for 3-5 minutes before you rinse thoroughly. If your hair is long use a conditioner but make sure to not apply it near the scalp.

The avocado oil is a great moisturizer, the lavender soothes and calms the skin down while the tea tree is a disinfectant as well as a soothing agent. has a great variety of certified organic miessence personal care products which is what I mainly use. They stock hair care and essential oils suitable for this recipe. The avocado oil or a similar moisturizing oil can be found in your local health shop.
