This cream has only a few ingredients, no dyes, no chemical preservatives, no scents. Its non greasy and leaves face feeling well moisturized. It can also be uses as a primer for makeup; a little on a cotton ball to clean off stubborn eye makeup too.

And its really, really cheap.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup aloe vera gel
  • 3/4 ounce beeswax (make sure you get the kind for cosmetics and not candles) Some of those come scented.
  • 1/4 cup almond oil
  • 1/4 cut coconut oil or olive oil
  • 10 drops of your favorite essential oil

Please note that essential oils are serious business Please take into account the oil you are using and its affects. Also, be sure to test the oil on your skin ahead of time to note any allergic reactions.

  • Chocolate/soap melter or double boiler
  • Blender

Method:

Start by melting the beeswax and coconut oil in the almond oil using the double boiler.

Leave it to cool. This is important!

On a separate container mix the essential oil into your cup of Aloe Vera Gel.

After the oils (beeswax+coconut oil +almond oil) have cooled, pour the melted oils into your blender and fire it up.

That’s it and you’re done. Store some in a small container for your vanity, and put extra in the fridge. Keep in mind that lotion has a shelf life. Don’t use anything that looks/smells/feels wrong.

*Note: Not everyone one of us are lucky to have coconut oil in our facial moisturizer without a breakout. If you fit the bill, then replace coconut oil with olive oil or any other carrier oils of your choice. If you have matured skin, it would be great if you could get hold of some Tamanu carrier oils, as its great for matured skins and is non-greasy.
