Sunburns can be painful and slow to heal. Lavender essential oil can help with mild burns, including sunburns and may help minimize peeling. Lavender is one of the few essential oils that does not need to be diluted with a carrier oil and can be applied directly to skin by gently dabbing it on with a cotton ball.
For a do-it-yourself skin soothing soak in the tub, combine one cup powdered milk with 10 drops lavender essential oil in a jar, shake and pour into lukewarm bath water.
