Homemade Sunblock

We finally made our own sunblock on Friday and used it at the swimming park! It worked pretty well.

I made a double batch of this:

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup Coconut butter
2 TBS of Zinc Oxide Powder

I have heard you can also use carrot seed oil for SPF as well. We don't have that oil on hand. This seemed to work pretty good on myself and the kids. I purchased the Zinc Oxide powder from Ebay. I would recommend using a protective examining mask while mixing it to ensure not to inhale the powder. We applied it before going swimming and used it for about 2 hours. We didn't get to the park until about a quarter to six but it really seemed to help me to not feel so sick and hot from the sun's intense rays and we     didn't burn. I will have to try it at a earlier time and see how it works then.
