DIY Sunscreen with Essential Oils

Well it's June 1 and we're already out spending most of our days outside in this gorgeous weather we've been having. For the first time I started experimenting with a DIY sunscreen with some of my oils and really love the way it came out! It's very simple to make and is completely customizable to a variety of oils you have on hand. Here is the handy chart I used as a reference guide when making mine:
I filled a 2oz amber glass spray bottle with:
- 3/4 coconut oil (which has an SPF of 4)
- 1/4 sesame oil (which has an SPF of 6) 
- 4 drops lavender eo (SPF 6)
- 4 drops peppermint eo (SPF 7)
- 10 drops carrot seed eo (SPF 30-40!).

 
It smells great and the peppermint has additional benefits to your circulatory system and amazing benefits for your muscles and skin tone. And  of course, best of all, this is 100% natural!! So I have no guilt spraying and rubbing this all over me and my pregnant belly. BUT, because of the coconut oil, I do not put this on my face. Coconut oil is comedogemic, meaning it can clog your pores, so I'm still on the hunt for a good (natural) facial sunscreen, let me know if you have any recommendations! 
Happy & Safe tanning and fun in the sun!
