Summer, and all its many festivities, is in full swing! I love everything that summer brings with it! Cook Outs, Picnics, Adventures, Sunburns…. Wait, so I don’t love EVERYTHING about summer. I definitely don’t love sunburns! My pasty white skin and prolonged exposure to the sun, even with a high level SPF protection, can result is some serious discomfort! Fortunately, I’ve learned a few tricks to help sooth my poor over exposed skin! My favorite? This all natural After Sun Soothing Spray using some of my favorite essential oils!
