    How to relieve and heal a sunburn: 1. Brew a pitcher of black tea (3 or 4 Earl Grey tea bags, let it get black). 2. Let it cool, till it's warm/lukewarm temp. (NOT hot) 3. Take a rag and dunk it into the tea and dab it on the sunburn (shower is a great place to apply). 4. DO NOT rub or rinse off the tea, let it soak into the skin. 5. Once it's dry, repeat as necessary.

    Sun burn relief. Earl Grey Tea. I think you can use regular black tea but Earl Grey works better because it has bergamot in it and that is also a helpful essential oil.

    Sunburn Remedy Brew 3 - 5 bags of black tea in a pitcher until water is black. Once cooled to warm/room temp dunk a rag into the tea & dab it onto the sunburn. DO NOT WIPE IT OFF! Leave it on to be absorbed in your skin. Once dry, reapply as necessary but never wash it off. Do this before bed to give it time to work its magic. In the morning the sunburn should subsided or all gone, but remember: the sooner you can apply the tea after you get the burn, the quicker and more effective it will be.

    sunburn "cure". Steep a large amount of black tea, let the water cool to warm, dip a cloth in the tea water and bathe your sunburn, leave the tea on your skin, do as many times as you wish, don't dry the tea off. put on old pj's n go to bed. Should be better the next am.
