Minimum SPF 25
Available from the Spring Equinox to the Autumn Equinox, this sunscreen is designed to be used when sunlight overtakes darkness during the perennial wheel.
The sun is a delectable source for vitamins and minerals that is blocked by mainstream sunscreen. Conscious sun bathing should be done early in the day, so the body has a chance to absorb much needed vitamin D. However, due to our modern day world, sometimes we need protection, especially when out in the sun’s midday peak. This all natural sunscreen is made with the kindest ingredients to protect and nourish you from the sun’s strongest rays. It also has cell-regenerating properties that work with the intelligence of the body’s inner mechanisms, allowing deep skin reparation to happen simultaneously.
Mainstream chemical sunscreens wreak havoc upon our body’s skin cells and poison the waterways of the planet. The carcinogens in these products are becoming known as substances that actually increase disease and skin cancer because of their free-radical generating properties which increases carcinoma risk by altering the intelligence of the cells.
This blend is crafted with non-nano zinc that sits on your skin, instead of entering your body, leaving your liver free to not have the burden of sifting out toxins. It has plant healing botanicals that offer the benefit of skin hydration while combatting hyperpigmentation. As a bonus it smells divine, not like the sunscreen beach scent we all know. This lightly tinted sunscreen is at least SPF 25. Reapplication is recommended if you’re sweating in the sun. When in the cooler water, the ingredients solidify slightly, allowing it to remain on your skin longer, making it perfect for water lovers. It is also kind to the ocean and its inhabitants.
As a bonus, this sunscreen doubles as a diaper cream! It is kind enough to be used on our little one’s skin and bums, helping soothe rashes and inflammation and protect from the sun’s rays. It can also be used during pregnancy (beyond 16 weeks to be safe).
2 oz jar
How to use: Place anywhere the sun will hit if you are out between 9:30 and 4. If you are sweating reapplication is necessary. If using in the ocean, the ingredients will solidify slightly on your skin and provide a great barrier so you can play in the water for quite a while! Always use the sun responsibly, there is a reason animals burrow under during the heat of the day. When using the sun intelligently, her medicine is best before the sun is too high in the sky. This one is truly for the human that still has to get stuff done during the day!

Summer practices connect one with the greater sphere in community through contact with others and with nature, especially floral nature. They are a way to integrate self in relationship to the world, to understand the balance between what is wild and what is cultivated, and to use these insights from the unkempt garden of the Earth to plant one’s own curated garden of dreams. Summer practices are for the practitioner to understand that Eden is a paradise we create together, so all can partake in the Earth’s bountiful and abundant nature. All summer practices harness the heat of the sun so as not to get burnt, but rather to use the sun’s energy to pause in the fullness of one’s creation.
