Many facial lotions on the market today are made with chemical and artificial ingredients that can irritate and damage the skin. For people with sensitive skin types, making your own facial lotion at home may be the only alternative. Homemade facial lotion can be made right in your own kitchen using natural and healthy ingredients. Here is a step-by-step guide to creating your own face lotion using Aloe Vera gel and skin nourishing essential oil.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 Cup Aloe Vera gel
  • 1 Cup Beeswax pellets
  • 10 drops Rose essential oils
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut oil
  • 1/4 Cup Olive oil
  • Double Boiler
  • Blender
  • Pot
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Containers with lids

Melt the beeswax pellets. Fill the base of a double boiler 1/2 full of water. In the top of the double boiler, pour in the beeswax pellets. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the beeswax pellets have melted.

Heat the oils. In a pot, heat the coconut and olive oils. Using a candy thermometer, test the temperatures of both the oils and the wax. When the temperatures are the same, pour them into a blender. Blend the mixture on high for 3 minutes.
