There are tons of moisturizers available in the market but they also contain synthetic ingredients. Here is a recipe for an all-natural coconut oil face and body moisturizer-
Coconut oil- Moisturizes and nourishes skin. Heals dryness and keeps skin healthy and plump.
Aloe gel- Soothes skin, nourishes and softens.
Vitamin E oil- Softens and moisturizes skin. Also works as a preservative in the recipe.
Lavender essential oil- Softens skin and also works as a fragrant in the recipe.
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/2 cup aloe gel – How to make fresh aloe vera gel
- Few drops vitamin E oil
- Few drops lavender essential oil
In a bowl, add aloe vera gel. Commercial aloe gel works great in this recipe as it has emulsifying agents but if you are using homemade/fresh aloe gel, you might want to blend the final product in a blender.
Add in melted coconut oil, vitamin E oil and lavender oil and mix or blend.
Store the final product in a jar and use it on damp skin after a bath.
If you stay in humid weathers, you can also add in ,melted bees wax to keep the product creamy.
The product will last for about 1 month in cool and dry place if you use commercial aloe gel. In case of fresh aloe, the shelf life of product is 3-4 days in refrigerator. READ MORE – Coconut Hair Spray for dry, frizzy and damaged hair
