Virgin Coconut Oil is great for sunburns (any kind of burn for that matter). If you mix Lavender and/or Eucalyptus essential oil in with VCO it will take the sting and heat out, helps prevent blistering and peeling. My friends and family laughed and thought I was crazy but now all come to get the "Burn Cream"
I started using Virgin Coconut Oil and I love it. I usually sunburn the first time I lay out in the sun, then peel, then I tan afterwards. I usually lay out without sunscreen or tanning lotion. So, I decided to put VCO on my body and layed out in the sun for four hours. I burnt a little, but nothing compared to usual. I also applied VCO twice a day after that and didn't peel at all, but it turned into a great tan. I will use VCO forever. P.S. I also started taking it internally 3X a day-yummy.
