You have probably heard of the innumerate health benefits of coconut oil and aloe Vera combination. When mixed, these two ingredients even double their effectiveness in the treatment over the skin problems.
In addition, both of the ingredients are commonly added to body lotions.
Aloe Vera is used for:
Soothing skin allergies
Soothing irritated skin
Elimination of aging spots, stretch marks, scars, and acne
Hydration of the skin
Coconut oil is:
Natural moisturizer which slows down the skin aging
Hydrates the skin
Anti-fungal and antibacterial agent
Gives a natural glow
Ingredients you need in order to prepare this gel:
½ cup of solid coconut oil
1/3 cup of aloe Vera gel
essential oil of your choice (lavender, vanilla, rose)
In a bowl, put the aloe Vera gel and the coconut oil and mix them for 5 minutes until you get a thick cream. Then, add in several drops of the essential oil and stir. Next, transfer the cream in a glass jar with a lid and keep it at room temperature.
How to use it:
Use it the same way as you use your body lotion. Apply it after showering, because then the skin pores are more open and the skin are moist.
