  • Once melted, allow to cool for 5-10 minutes
  • Add Aloe gel and zinc oxide and combine well

This recipe is very forgiving.  You can swap out ingredients to get the desired consistency. 
It is very important to use Non Nano Zinc Oxide
Do not use citrus essential oils, they can cause you to burn,
For zinc oxide, use a 10-30% of the weight of the oil mixture.  10% will make the sunscreen 10spf whereas 30% will make it 30spf.  It is not recommended to go higher than 30%
