In our last post we looked at the benefits of Aloe Vera for the skin and why Aloe is so beneficial for anti-aging and skin hygiene. Today we look at how to make face and body creams. Learn 3 of the very best and most luxurious Aloe Vera Cream Recipes that are easily made at home.
These creams take little time to make but they are incredibly good for your skin and extremely cost effective!
In the first recipe I offer a step by step guide for how to harvest your own homemade Aloe Vera Gel. It is really easy, if you have the plants or access to plants!
However if you do not have the plants then you can use store bought 100% pure Aloe Vera Gel.
After each recipe I have listed my recommendations for each of the ingredients.
I have listed 1 product for each ingredient and have ensured I provided a recommendation for all possible options, ie. Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil and Grapeseed Oil.
You only need 1 oil, those listed are the best of 3 options, so choose your favorite – you do not need to purchase them all!
The products give you some great choices and you can depend on the quality!

To Make You Will Need:

½ teaspoon Borax or Sodium Borate (water-softening agent)
10 drops of your favorite essential oil or oils
¾ Cup Aloe Vera Gel
½ Cup Organic Coconut Oil
½ Cup of Sweet Almond or Jojoba or Grapeseed Oil
Aloe Vera Cream Instructions:
Note: If you are intending to use fresh Aloe Vera you can harvest the gel using the instructions from the 1st cream above.
Heat the filtered water and borax in a saucepan until just boiling.
Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
In a second saucepan gently heat the Coconut and Sweet Almond oil until the oils have just liquefied.
Remove from the heat and let cool.
Ensure both of the mixes are the same temperature and then pour the cooled coconut oils into a blender. Turn the blender on at a low speed and very slowly add the filtered water mixture. Take your time and do this slowly. This will give the lotion its creaminess.
Add your choice of essential oil to your Aloe Vera gel and stir well.
Add the Aloe Vera mix to the coconut cream. Again add this slowly and blend on slow speed until you have a smooth lotion.
Pour the lotion into a clean and, preferably, sterilised glass jar. You can store the lotion in the fridge for at least one month.

Remove from the heat and let cool. Pour the cooled coconut and olive oils into a blender or mixing bowl.
Slowly pour the Cucumber and Aloe Vera into the oils and blend on a low speed until you have a smooth lotion.
Pour the lotion into a clean and preferably sterilized jar. Store in the fridge. It will keep for a month.
