Natural Sunburn Relief

Natural Sunburn Relief.

Last Saturday, our church went on a canoe trip! Domingo, Jorryn and I joined in the fun and canoed for the first time together. We had a great time paddling down river, laughing, and splashing. It was a great time until Saturday night, when I realized how burnt my legs were. I was lobster red and s.o.r.e! After taking a Motrin to help with my soreness, I started lathering on a number of products to find some relief on my tender skin. I was a little surprised at what helped!


Life-Flo Organic Pure Coconut Oil made a huge difference on my burn! I used it multiple times a day and it helped relieve the pain plus heal. I was amazed at the results! It still took a few days to heal, but it provided quick relief to the burning and relieved the redness. I would definitely try it out if you’re suffering from a burn this summer!

    Yikes! What a sunburn! Always use a high SPF. Thanks for the info about the coconut oil – I never knew it could help a sunburn, I always relied on aloe vera for that. I wonder if it would help my psoriasis???

    This sounds like a great product. Hopefully I will never need to use it to relieve the pain of a sunburn. I make sure to wear sunscreen whenever I’m going out and I try to avoid sun exposure by wearing hats.

    Thanks for the tip! I know coconut oil has many good uses! It worked wonders on my son when I was cloth diapering him to treat and keep rashes at bay. I did not know it could be used for sunburns.

    I sooo could have used this a few weeks ago, I think I had a sunburn for like two weeks, the aloe didn’t do much, I’ll definitely keep this in mind next time!

    I really love coconut products. I have a natural orange based sunscreen right now and coconut shampoo. And this coconut sunburn relief looks like a great product!

    I have tried Aloe gel with mixed results. This seems like a better option! I know the best is to use sunscreen and try to avoid a sunburn but sometimes it just happens. Thanks for sharing!

    I use coconut on my dry hair but I have never thought about using it for sunburns.
