Make your own sunscreen


In my search for natural sun screens without all the harmful chemicals I came across this recipe, which I am going to try out on my next beach holiday.



  • 70 g apricot kernel oil
  • 35 g coconut oil
  • 35 g bees wax
  • 100 g distilled water
  • 2 tablespoons zinc oxide
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ oil


  1. combine first three ingredients in a saucepan over low heat
  2. mix gently until well combined, then remove from heat
  3. add distilled water & stir until thick and smooth
  4. add zinc oxide and wheat germ oil.
  5. leave to set and store in a dark coloured glass jar.
