Natural Sunscreen

Hi. I’m Dr. Carolee Johnson with Quantum Techniques. Today I would like to show you how to make a natural sunscreen that’s about an SPF 20. It’s that time of year when we’re going to be out in the sun and getting sunburned. The sunscreens that are out there have so many chemicals and toxic substances and once you put them on your skin they are in your bloodstream in 20 seconds. A lot of people don’t test good for that type of sunscreen because the chemicals that are involved. It will test bad as a contactant and so if we’re going to go and play out in the sun then we need to have something safe.

Previously I created a video about how to make a natural lotion ( that uses 1/4 cup of olive oil, and I like the Kirkland Organic. You want to make sure that your olive oil is pure olive oil and it’s not cut with some cheaper oil that doesn’t test good for your skin. Olive oil is a nutritive and it goes into the skin and actually helps to feed and heal the skin. In addition, I use wheat germ oil because of the natural vitamin E content, so I use a 1/4 cup of it, and then I include a 1/4 cup of fresh raw aloe vera leaf right from the plant. I’ll just cut that up and dig that gel out of there. So what you come up with when you blend those ingredients together is a mayonnaise-type substance. This is the only lotion that I use on my skin after a bath or anytime. Then to make it into a sunscreen I add a 1/4 cup of non-nano zinc oxide which is pharmaceutical grade.

I stir all of the ingredients together and it’s really simple – I have the lotion made! Then I just put that into a covered jar and store it in the fridge. This sunscreen needs refrigeration because it uses fresh oil, which tends to oxidize in light and in heat, and the aloe vera should also be refrigerated.

One thing that I want to point out is, I’ve been to the beaches on Maui and some other islands and on just about every beach you’ll see a sign that says don’t use sunscreen if you’re going to go into the water because it kills the marine life. They know how toxic sunscreen is because it actually has an effect on the environment and kills the marine life in the ocean. If you were to take a couple of tablespoons of sunscreen and stir that into your saltwater fish tank those fish aren’t going to survive. The same effect occurs with a lot of people slathering on hands full of sunscreen and then going into the ocean. We know that those substances, those chemicals, are toxic. For that reason alone we should want to create our own sunscreen that has natural elements, including natural zinc oxide, which is healing to the skin, and use it instead of the chemical-laden sunscreens marketed to the masses. This natural sunscreen has an SPF 20 and it does work. I hope that that helps you through the summer and have a great day!

Thanks to Quantum Techniques she feels she can do a much more complete job in healing. My Personal Testimony: I struggled with my health nearly all my life. After giving birth to my last child, my health completely failed, and the future looked grim. I started working with natural healing after going to doctors and finding that they could do nothing for me. I cured myself of uternine turmors with herbs, live nutrition, hydrotherapy, clean air and sunshine. I also strengthened my ailing heart and kidneys the same way. However, I never regained my strenth and vitality until I met an angel straight out of heaven named Beth Daniel... and then my fortune changed! Quantum Techniques allowed me to find the underlying cause to the constant fatigue and the kidney and heart trouble that never would completely heal. When I came to Quantum Techniques for treatment, I was much too thin and still very weak. I had already tried everything else including other alternative methods and raw food. These natural methods were very helpful, but something was definitely missing. Being able to find the underlying causes made all the difference in regaining complete health and strength, and getting back to normal weight. I was also able to finally rest from the constant bouts of anxiety that had plagued me. Now instead of lying in bed feeling weak and miserable and scared, I enjoy hiking and swimming in natural hot springs with my husband and children, and running a cattle ranch on the desert's modern wild west along the old Pony Express Trail.
