Green Goddess Sunscreen by Wendyl Nissen.

75ml sesame oil
45g coconut oil or cocoa butter
15g beeswax
120ml water
2 tbsp zinc oxide powder
1 tbsp wheat germ oil
1 tsp citric acid (from supermarket baking aisle)
20 drops lavender oil

In a double boiler (or put a bowl over boiling water in a saucepan) melt the oils and the beeswax together. Take off the heat and add the water, mixing with an electric mixer until thick and creamy. Then add the zinc oxide, wheat germ oil, and citric acid. Stir then add the lavender oil. Over time this will start leaching water, just drain it off.
