I tried this the other day it works really good. I wanted to test on myself before I used it on the kids.

Ingredients

Directions

Put all ingredients in a glass bowl on top of a pan of boiling water and melt all ingredients together, stirring often. Allow to cool and put into empty bottle. Store in a cool dry place or in the fridge.

This may feel good after sun, but is NOT useful as a sunscreen!

I read in a book about making your own sun tan lotion. We all know how expensive it can be to purchase at the store. I was wondering if anyone knows the recipe for it? Is it really safe to use, or am I better off paying for it at the store? Thank you so much!

I would be careful, though. Your health is not something to skimp on!
