Burns and Bites Spray

Here's a simple spray you can make yourself to help alleviate the pain of sunburn and the itch of insect bites. Ravensara essential oil helps prevent infection as well. Avoid spraying in the eyes. If by accident you do spray it in your eyes, do not use water to wash it out because water will drive the oils further into the eye. Use oil such as almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil.

1 oz. aloe vera gel
1 oz. lavender hydrosol
1 oz. roman chamomile hydrosol
30 drops of lavender essential oil
15 drops of ravensara essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a 4 oz. spray bottle.
Shake and spray as needed.
Keep out of eyes.
Alleviates pain.
Promotes skin healing.
Diminishes itching.

Maybe you should make this and sell it in your Etsy store!
I really like the Bay Rum spray, it has a very unique aroma and is very refreshing as a skin toner.
We make our own air fresheners by putting a few drops of essential oil in distilled water then putting it in the blender. We've come up with some strange combinations but they all smell good!
