Most lotions contain alcohol which is drying to the skin and or Parabens that are added for shelf life. Recent studies show parabens can even cause cancer.


Silky Aloe Vera Body Lotion

1 cup aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon lanolin
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 to 3/4 ounce beeswax
3/4 cup almond oil
1 ½ teaspoons essential oil


Use a blender (or food processor) to mix the aloe vera gel, lanolin, & vitamin E oil.

Microwave coconut oil & beeswax in a glass container on high 30 seconds, and stir.

Repeat heating in 10-second blocks until fully melted.

Stir in almond oil, reheating if necessary.

Run blender or processor at low to medium speed, then pour in melted oils in thin stream.

As the oil is blended in, the cream will turn white and blender’s motor will start to grind.

As soon as melted oils are added and you’ve achieved mayonnaise-like consistency, stop the blender, add essential oil and pulse-blend.

Do not over blend.

Transfer cream to glass jars while still warm – the lotion will thicken quickly.

This lotion absorbs well and leaves no residue on skin.

Makes two cups.

Store in glass containers away from heat and sunlight.
