There is nothing better than natures goodness
It is so comforting to know exactly what you are putting on your skin.
I have been making my own Aloe Vera cream for a few years now, it is just too simple and easy and GOOD not to share it with you!
1 Cup Pure Aloe Vera Gel - I choose Australian Made (aloeveraaustralia.com.au)
2 TBS Rosehip Carrier Oil - choose quality Australian Made (Nessentials is just one)
You can use a different carrier oil such as Jojoba or Argan oil - I use Rosehip oil because is high in vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is a natural retinoid that helps fight aging, and both vitamins can help reverse the effects of the sun on your skin.
Essential Oils of choice - 12 - 18 drops per TBS carrier approx
Some I use which are excellent for skin particularly face are
- German Chamomile
- Ylang Ylang
Method: Add your essential oils to your carrier oil before you add to the Aloe Vera. I use a hand held kitchen blender to whip into a beautiful cream in seconds, you can also hand whip though. Keeps very well and I live in a hot and humid climate, you can refrigerate if you wish to aid in further cooling affect to the skin if you're using more as a first aid cream.
Let me know if you give this a try - enjoy x
