Did you know the Aloe plant has more than two hundred helpful compounds in it?

What does that mean to you?

It means that a piece of an Aloe plant contains most of the important nutrients and anti-aging properties we need. There have been thousands of studies done all over the world. This research has proven that this plant has ingredients that act as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral.

Sunburn is just the beginning of a long list of ailments Aloe Vera can help to heal. That list also has eczema, psoriasis, acne, bruises, and cuts, on it.

Now let's start talking about how to make an Aloe Vera moisturizer for your face and your body.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp sweet almond oil
  • 1/3 cup aloe vera gel
  • 2 tbsp apricot kernel oil
  • 1 tbsp jojoba wax/beeswax (I used jojoba)
  • 10 drops essential oil (I used orange and lemon)
  • a double boiler or a glass bowl and a pan
  • a glass jar with a lid
  • a mixer

Heat the wax and the oils together until the wax melts

Gather all your ingredients before you begin, and make sure to read over the directions.

  1. Combine all the oils - the sweet almond oil, the jojoba wax, and the apricot kernel oil - together in a glass bowl.
  2. Get your double boiler out and place water in the bottom ... if you don't have a double boiler, you can make your own with a pan and a bowl that can be placed in the oven so it can stand the heat. Fill the pan half way with water.
  3. Set the bowl in the pan or the top of the double boiler on the bottom of the cooker. Pour your ingredients into the top of the boiler.
  4. Let the water heat on low and keep it on until the wax melts.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat
  6. Let everything cool until it reaches room temperature.
  7. Add the essential oils you've chosen to the aloe vera gel.
  8. Slowly and carefully, pour the gel into the mixture of oil while using a hand mixer to stir the ingredients.
  9. Keep the mixer on until the mixture is whipped and has a buttery consistency.

Now it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor, spread that mix on your face, your arms, your legs and let your skin soak up that magic moisturizer.
