All Natural Aloe Vera and Almond Oil Moisturizer

We’ve written about the benefits of Aloe Vera before, check out our previous post on the Amazing Health Benefits Of Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera can also rejuvenate fibroblast cells in the skin, which helps keep skin looking young, and also protects against UV radiation which damages the skin. Our Aloe Vera and almond oil moisturizer will not only keep the skin soft and supple, but will help to tighten up the skin and remove wrinkles.

Aloe Vera isn’t the only amazing ingredient however, almond oil also has lots of great properties: it is rich in vitamin E and D, soothes irritated skin, relieves dry and chapped skin and helps delay the ageing process.

These two ingredients together form a wonderfully simple moisturizer recipe that is a must for everybody!

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons Aloe Vera gel (We use this brand, as mentioned in Shocking Truth About Aloe Vera Products )

2 tablespoons of Coconut oil (Where to buy)

1 teaspoon liquid Vitamin E Oil (However, if you use the Genuine aloe vera that we recommend, they add small amounts of pure vitamin E to the aloe, so you can save buying extra)

2 tablespoons Almond oil

You want to make sure that you buy high quality natural ingredients, such as the ones that are recommended, as manufacturers can be sneaky! Read our post on the Shocking Truth About Aloe Vera Products for more information.

Method:

Simply take a clean cup or bowl and add the Aloe and oil in, then mix it well.

Melt the coconut oil (slowly) and add it to the mixture.

That’s it! As simple as that, you have a moisturizer that you can use regularly for normal skin.

Some people like to combine the mixture with essential oils, however, we prefer to keep them out of daily moisturizers as they can often leave you smelling too strongly whilst out and about.

    Can I substitute the Almond oil with a different oil, like Jojoba, Olive or Grape seed oil?

    • Natural and Healthy Living

      Of course! Jojoba or olive is better for the skin than grape.

    How long is the shelf life?

    • Natural and Healthy Living

      This will last many months, depending on the aloe vera you use. Fresh aloe vera from the plant goes bad after a few days, but the aloe in our recipe contains citric acid (natural) which stops in going bad. Thanks Zoe.

    Is this an emulsion? Will the oils and Aloe gel blend? I’ve just tried so many emulsions and have lost lots of ingredients, so I thought I’d ask before doing so again:)

    • Natural and Healthy Living

      It’s mixed pretty well for us, but it you find it doesn’t mix well (depending on the aloe you use) i.e crap aloe vs quality aloe, then you can just leave it out.

    I read in the previous comments about the citric acid persevering the mixture but if you add some lemon juice to preserve fresh Aloe from a plant will that do the same thing?

    Hi,
    When I made the aloe vera moisturiser, after a couple of hours the coconut oil solidified again. Is this normal?

    • Natural and Healthy Living

      This is very normal, yes.

    Does this need to be kept in the refrigerator?

    • Natural and Healthy Living

      Aloe vera in a moisturizer certainly lasts longer in the fridge but totally up to you!
