Silky Aloe Vera Skin Care Body Lotion

Aloe vera is used in many skin care products due to its ability to stimulate healthy cell growth and also to repair damaged tissues. It contains anti-inflammatory properties and burn healing effects.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup Aloe Vera gel
  2. 1-teaspoon lanolin
  3. 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  4. 1/3-cup coconut oil
  5. 1/2 to 3/4 ounce beeswax
  6. 3/4 cup almond oil
  7. 1 teaspoons essential oil

Procedure:

  • Use a blender (or food processor) to mix the Aloe Vera gel, lanolin, & vitamin E oil.
  • Microwave coconut oil & beeswax in a glass container on high 30 seconds, and stir.
  • Repeat heating in 10-second blocks until fully melted.
  • Stir in almond oil, reheating if necessary.
  • Run blender or processor at low to medium speed, and then pour in melted oils in thin stream.
  • As the oil is blended in, the cream will turn white and blender’s motor will start to grind.
  • As soon as melted oils are added and you’ve achieved mayonnaise-like consistency, stop the blender, add essential oil and pulse-blend.
  • Do not over blend.
  • Transfer cream to glass jars while still warm – the lotion will thicken quickly.
  • This lotion really absorbs well and leaves no residue on skin.
