The Sun is not our enemy but our friend. The action of sunlight on our skin is essential for carrying out many essential tasks in our body. The skin being porous absorbs the Sun’s rays but when blocked by chemicals such as sunscreens is prevented from doing its job effectively.

When the body is hydrated naturally with a diet high in natural raw foods, we find that the Sun’s heat does not cause sun burns. Sun burn is also an effective signal for us to know when enough is enough and get out from the Sun into shade.

Sunblocks and sunscreens prevent this from happening.

However, if you would still want to prevent sunburns, follow these steps-

  • Go out when the sun rays are not so harsh. Morning and evening times are best.
  • Use mechanical barriers like hats, long sleeved clothing and sunglasses.
  • Use aloe vera gel, pure organic virgin coconut oil or a mix of both before stepping out in the Sun or to soothe sunburns.

If you would like something pre-made try this recipe and let us know how it went.


  • Aloe vera gel:¼ cup
  • Coconut oil:1 tbsp
  • Essential oil like Lavender: about 10 drops
  • Glass spray bottle


  • Add ingredients in a glass spritzer bottle
  • Shake before each use.
  • Please be aware that since it is a natural recipe, the SPF may not be all that great. It is still advisable to do a mechanical barrier as explained earlier.
