Spritz face lightly with a hydrosol before applying or apply after washing your face while your skin is still damp.  A small amount goes a long way!  About a half dropper full has offered me protection for a day in the sun. 

If making yourself from the above recipe:  Blend your essential oils, stir together your two carrier oils, combine the carriers with the essential oils.  Funnel into glass jars and roll in your hands to blend well.

About Facial Sun Protection Oil

This offers real SPF sun protection without use of any zinc oxide or the toxic titanium dioxide.  I can not guarantee an SPF factor since I am not having it tested.  Both pomegranate and red raspberry seed oils carry a very high SPF, for example raspberry seed oil has been tested to be an SPF ranging from 28-50 (Oomah et al 2000).

Tamanu oil is the oil the Polynesians used for hundreds of years to protect themselves from the sun.  Helichrysum and myrrh also have a reputation to offer sun protection since they both live in dry harsh sunny climates, these plants have learned how to protect themselves from the sun in their environment and they share their oils with us to offer the same protection.  Thank you Myrrh trees and Helichrysum flowers.

Homemade with all safe oils for your face; this oil can also be a nourishing facial oil for daily use.  With essential oils of myrrh and helichrysum it is a powerful skin rejuvenative that is also anti-aging.
