DIY (304) –  gift ideas: aloe body lotion

Hi everyone!!!!

You may think that making a body lotion is another impossible feat, but in reality a few ingredients and an old empty jar are enough.

Of course, this too, by removing the label, could become a nice gift idea.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 304



1 cup aloe vera gel – 1 teaspoon + 1 teaspoon beeswax tablets – 1/2 cup almond oil or jojoba oil (or any other liquid oil) – 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil (optional) – 1 teaspoon shea butter (optional) – essential oils of your choice – I like 10 drops of geranium and 5 drops of lime

Add almond oil, coconut oil, beeswax and shea butter or cocoa (if you like), in a bowl and heat it in a bainmarie pot.

Stir occasionally as the ingredients melt.

When all the ingredients are completely dissolved, add vitamin E oil (optional) and all the essential oils or fragrances such as vanilla.

Pour into a glass or tin jar for storage.  Small jars of old creams will be perfect for this DIY project

Use as you would with any other lotion.  This lotion is ultra-moisturizing and more oily than water-based lotions so you won’t need to use as much.  

It also has a longer life than some homemade lotion recipes since all the ingredients are already stable and without need to add water. 

Use within 6 months for the best moisturizing benefits.

Your body lotion is ready.

Just add a label and some decoration to use it as a gift.

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY!!!
