Put all the oils in a small blender and mix them for a while. Then store it in a glass bottle. If we heat very lightly and mix for a while we will achieve better homogenization of the mixture. Half an hour before sun exposure, we apply a generous amount of this oil and make a gentle massage. We repeat again after a little while and, we often put and sit in the sun for short intervals. Immediately after exposure to the sun, we need to reapply a small amount as a back-up protection.
