In Arizona a few days ago I was negligent about re-applying sunscreen when the kids and I were hanging out by the pool. We came home sporting varying shades of pink and red burned skin. As a mom, this was not one of my prouder parenting moments.
As happens with sunburns, we didn’t feel the full effect until later that evening, when my daughter complained about the heat radiating from her pink thighs.
The homeopathic remedy for sunburn is Belladonna. I dissolved a few pellets in a few ounces of water and gave each of us a teaspoon underneath our tongues to start. The relief from the burning started in minutes.
To take it further, I mixed teaspoons of the remedy water with some shea butter-based lotion and slathered it across the affected areas.
We each enjoyed a comfortable, pain-free night, and our skin was in much better shape the next day, thanks to the Belladonna.
