Instructions

  • In order to make your rejuvenating aloe vera cream, cut the leaves into small pieces. Afterward, remove the gel from inside of the plant. You can do this by cutting the leaves in half and scooping out the insides with a spoon.
  • Once you have the aloe vera crystal, put it in an airtight glass container, then add the cocoa butter and almond oil. Also, you can use beeswax.
  • Once you have the container filled, you can then put it into a double boiler. Then, let it sit for a few minutes and wait for the ingredients to soften and melt.
  • When everything is ready, remove the jar (being very careful not to burn yourself) and mix the ingredients together. If you don’t like the texture or see too many lumps, you could use a blender to thoroughly process the ingredients.
  • Once the cream is ready, add the drops of essential oil. While the mixture is still hot, put it inside a container.

Let the cream sit to cool down and put the containers – the ones you won’t be using right away – in the refrigerator. That way, you won’t lose any of the cream’s rejuvenating properties, and it will last longer because natural creams tend to “spoil” before they’re used.

As mentioned earlier, making a rejuvenating aloe vera cream is quite simple. With only a number of natural ingredients that aren’t difficult to find, you can use them to care for your skin care of our skin at night.

So, how does making your own rejuvenating aloe vera cream sound? Have you ever made a different kind of rejuvenating cream? If so, then you know that the satisfaction of making your own cosmetics is absolutely priceless.
