Homemade Lotion w/Aloe Vera

Homemade Spa Recipe for homemade body lotion with Aloe Vera that will leave your skin soft and moisturized.


* 1 cup aloe Vera gel
* 1 teaspoon lanolin
* 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
* 1/3 cup coconut oil
* 1/2 to 3/4 ounce beeswax
* 3/4 cup almond oil
* 1 teaspoons essential oil


Combine the aloe Vera gel, lanolin and vitamin E oil in a food processor. Microwave the coconut oil and beeswax in a glass bow over a pot of simmering water. Stir the almond oil in the wax mixture. Slowly add the hot wax mixture to the aloe Vera mixture while the food processor is running on low. You are using the same principle as making mayonnaise. The mixture will turn white and creamy. Add your favorite essential oil and just pulse it in. Do not over blend. Pour the body lotion in a glass jar and let it cool.

Good Article on Aloe Vera. Really Excellent.
Aloe vera is one with multipurpose benefits as well as for skin lotion. Actually I recently got in touch of Aloe Vera and Aloe Vera based product and also using an Aloe Vera Skin for my skin lotion which is also effective.
