We've all done it.

You’re enjoying the water, the sand, the breeze, a nice beach picnic, a dip in your favorite swimming hole, lounging in the baby pool in your corner of the shared yard — but we forget to reapply our sunscreen. Summer’s too much fun for chores! As day turns to night, you’re left dehydrated, inflamed, red, and a little embarrassed. It’s ok, it’s not just you. That's where herbs come in.

We've combined one of our favorite, cooling tinctures, Rose-Colored Glasses, with fresh Aloe Vera to soothe burned skin effectively and fast. If you have an Aloe Vera plant at home, you can cut some off, peel off the skin, scrape the gel out, and combine with RCG in a small bowl. If you don’t have a plant you can order aloe vera gel or pick it up at your local health food store. Keep it in the fridge for extra cool relief.

Cool down.
