Recipe type: DIY Beauty
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup aloe vera gel (like this)
  • ½ cup coconut oil (like this)
  • 2 tablespoons jojoba oil (like this)
  • 1.5 tablespoons beeswax pastilles (Can also use ¾th of a 1 oz bar of beeswax, diced finely or grated)
  • 5-8 drops essential oil like lavender or geranium (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat coconut oil, beeswax, and jojoba oil in a modified double boiler, stirring occasionally to make sure contents combine.
  2. Once liquid, pour mixture into glass blender and allow mixture to completely cool (about 1 - 1.5 hours.) Once the mixture has cooled, take a spatula and scrap down the sides of the blender to loosen the contents.
  3. Turn blender on low and slowly pour aloe vera gel into the mixture, stopping occasionally to allow contents to combine.
  4. If contents get "stuck" in the blender, continue to scrap down the sides of the blender and whip mixture by hand until light, fluffy texture forms.
  5. Once aloe vera has been mixed in, blend 5-8 drops essential oil into lotion.
  6. SPECIAL REMINDER! It's incredibly important to allow mixture to completely cool in blender before adding aloe vera gel. Also, you'll get the best results using a natural aloe vera gel. Aloe vera juice or homemade gel will not work the same.
