This recipe is from my wife Angel, who loves to make food, home and body care recipes that support people’s journey to optimal health.

All-Natural Sunscreen Ingredients:

1 c raw unrefined shea butter

2/3 c coconut oil

20 drops Myrrh essential oil

30 drops Carrot Seed essential oil

20 drops Lavender essential oil

(optional) 2 tbsp zinc oxide powder ( a couple of tablespoons per cup of oil/moisturizer) (Be sure not to inhale.)

Natural Sunscreen Directions:

Mix raw unrefined shea butter with coconut oil with a mixer on medium speed until it looks whipped and creamy. (Add in optional zinc oxide powder and mix well.)

Add in essential oils. Blend together on low speed.

Place sunscreen in a glass jar with a lid.


SPF Breakdown:

These are the minimal ranges of each of these oils

Raw unrefined shea butter: 5 SPF

Coconut oil: 6 SPF

Carrot Seed essential oil: 28 SPF

Myrrh essential oil: 15 SPF

(Lavender essential oil: Great for soothing and repairing skin)

*Carrot Seed oil is an antioxidant and protects skin cells naturally. Aside from making sunscreen with this oil the medicinal benefits are amazing. It is great for digestive issues and for healthy joints. (1)

*Myrrh essential oil also has powerful cleansing properties. It also promotes a healthy and smooth complexion, while promoting emotional balance. (2)

*Lavender essential oil is known for its calming effects on skin irritation, its soothing properties, and its ability to restore skin. (3)

 This recipe does not expire!

Additional Notes:

*This great D. I. Y. recipe is NOT waterproof. Please reapply as needed.

*I recommend you reapply this sunscreen every two hours.

*This recipe makes an overall SPF of 28. However, please note that, as with any D. I. Y. recipe, the science will not be an exact match as products purchased in a store that have been industrially made and scientifically scrutinized.

Please use caution and test this on yourself on a less sun-intensive day before using it on your fair-skinned child or baby. Though there is less of an exact science behind this recipe, the benefits of a toxic-free and chemical-free sunscreen far outweigh the risks, though.

    I’m confused about the Zinc ~ I’ve read similar articles before that suggest you wear a mask when handling the zinc. If it’s unsafe to inhale, how is it safe for your skin?

      Hey Patti,

      The zinc oxide is completely non-toxic, people have been using it as a sun block for a long time. Perfectly safe!

    I have all but Carrot seed oil and Zinc oxide, at present can you use another oil in its place?
    Thank you for posting.

    The carrot oil provides the greatest SPF, so it is a key part of the recipe!

    There is a huge difference between carrot seed essential oil and carrot seed oil. Essential oils have no known SPF value. Carrot seed oil possibly having an SPF is associated with 1 isolated study. This topic has been widely discussed and researched in the EO field. I would encourage you to reach out to Robert Tisserand to discuss further. The protection in this recipe comes from the zinc oxide not any of the essential oils.
