Aloe vera lotion is most commonly used to treat sunburns, but it has other benefits as well. The next time you get a sunburn, want to treat your dry skin or help diminish fine lines, try making your own aloe vera cream. This easy-to-make mixture will soothe your skin as you rest easy in the knowledge that all the ingredients are fresh and contain no harmful chemicals.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons lanolin
  • Small microwavable bowl
  • Microwave
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
  • 4 tablespoons almond oil
  • Vitamin A capsules
  • Large bowl
  • Blender or whisk

In a small bowl, melt the lanolin and beeswax together in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

Pour the olive oil, aloe gel, almond oil and vitamin A (about 50,000 IU's - break the capsules open) into a large bowl.

Whisk these ingredients until evenly blended. If you want to use a blender, you can.

Add the ingredients from your small bowl, and mix together until smooth. The cream is now ready to be applied.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can store your aloe lotion in a glass jar or resealable container for about a month.
