  • Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water and put over medium heat. 
  • Combine the first 5 ingredients in a glass measuring cup and place it into the saucepan.  The water should only go about halfway up the sides of the cup.  You don't want your measuring cup to float.
  • Stir occasionally until the beeswax is completely melted.
  • Carefully remove the cup from the hot water and stir in the carrot seed oil, raspberry seed oil, and lavender essential oil.
  • Now blend in the zinc oxide until no lumps remain.
  • Finally, scoop your homemade sunscreen into the bottles.
  • Congratulations! Enjoy your homemade sunscreen!
