  • Bottle with lid



  • Pour all the ingredients into a very clean or sterile bottle and shake to combine.


To use, test in a discrete spot to check for irritation. Wash the affected area, shake bottle to combine ingredients and gently apply the lotion (if treating sunburn, wait until the heat has cleared from the skin before using this lotion).
Store in the fridge, as the cool temperature will help soothe, too.
The raw honey means this is not suitable for babies under one year of age.
