Lavender Essential Oil for Sunburn

Here are several reasons to use lavender on burned skin:

  • Burned skin is hot and tender to touch, lavender essential oil has healing effects that can help to soothe the pain and inflammation that comes with a sunburn.
  • Try lavender and peppermint oil together for an even more powerful soothing blend.
  • It has regenerative properties that promote new skin growth. Use lavender and tea tree mixed to gently cleanse sun damaged skin.
  • Lavender will also keep the skin clean and reduce the risk of infection due to its antiseptic action.
  • It has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that help to speed up skin healing.
  • Use lavender with the carrier oil you have on hand, mix together, apply to sunburned skin.

While lavender essential oil is the top choice for sunburns, here are a few other essential oils for burns:

  • Roman Chamomile essential oil
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Tea Tree essential oil
  • German Chamomile essential oil

Remember, if using essential oils in the sun, use caution with photosensitive oil. These oils can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun.

How to Make a Cooling Compress with Lavender Oil

Take the heat and sting out of a sunburn with an anti-inflammatory lavender cooling compress. Applying an ice-cold compress with healing oils after sun exposure can bring relief.

Cooling compresses also work well for bruises, insect stings and bites, headaches, swelling, and other injuries.

Ingredients for Lavender Oil Compress

  • 6 drops Lavender Oil
  • 1 teaspoon sweet almond oil
  • Washcloth or towel
  • Bowl with cold water
  • Ice Cubes

How to Make Essential Oil Compress

Step 1: Fill the bowl with cold water and ice cubes.

Step 2: Blend 1 teaspoon sweet almond oil and 6 drops lavender essential oil together. Add oil blend to the bowl of water and ice.

Step 3: Soak the washcloth in the bowl to make a cooling compress. Remove the washcloth and squeeze out the excess water.

Step 4: Place compress on the sunburned area. Leave in place until it reaches body temperature.

Repeat step #3 & #4 a few times as needed.

You may want to use peppermint oil in the sunburn compress for the cool menthol affect. It is best to only use 3 drops of oil as it is a stronger essential oil. You can also use fractionated coconut oil as an alternative carrier oil.

When complete, follow up by applying aloe vera gel to the burned skin. Aloe vera gel is soothing and healing to sunburns, plus it keeps the skin moist.

I like to keep my aloe vera gel in the refrigerator, it improves the shelf life and it is also really refreshing when applied to sun-exposed skin. You may want to try Aloe Vera Gel Ice Cubes too.
