Ah, summer. Longer days, endless tanning, beach trips, barbecues, pool parties … the list goes on.
Through all the fun and relaxing, there is something most summer activities have in common – long exposure to the sun. It’s very important to protect your skin from the harmful rays. Keep reading for a natural sunscreen recipe.
Did you know that in the U.S., each year over 5.4 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are treated in more than 3.3 million people? 
It’s important to take precautions when you know you’ll be in the sun even for a short amount of time. Stephanie Gerber has created a Green Tea Infused Sunscreen, found in Willow and Sage Summer 2017, that combines green tea, zinc oxide, natural oils and butters to create protection from UVA and UVB rays.
NOTE: Always test a small area of your skin first, to check for sensitivity. Please avoid contact with eyes and approach all oils with extreme caution if you have any skin allergies. Please seek professional advice prior to using essential oils while pregnant or nursing.
