DIY: Aloe Face Moisturizer
This non-greasy moisturizer can be used as a face primer or a night cream. The recipe is simple to make, but be sure you allow yourself enough time for the different steps. Plan on a relaxing cup of tea during the cooling stage, perhaps?
1 cup Aloe Vera Gel
¾ oz Beeswax (grated from the bar)
¼ cup Sweet Almond Oil
¼ cup Coconut Oil
10 drops of your favorite Essential Oil(s)
Place Beeswax, Coconut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil in a double boiler.
Heat until melted, mixing with a whisk.
Pour the mixture into a blender and allow to cool before you start to blend.
Mix your Essential Oil(s) into the cup of Aloe Vera Gel.
Slowly pour the gel into the blender as it whips.
Store a small amount in a glass jar and keep the rest in the fridge.
