Dry Skin Body Cream recipe
1 cup Aloe Vera Gel
1 tsp Vitamin E Oil
1 tbsp Beeswax
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp Apricot kernel oil
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp Sweet Almond oil
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Camellia Oil
1/2 tsp Clary Sage Essential Oil
1/2 tsp Ylang Ylang Essentail Oil
1/2 tsp Geranium Essential Oil
Place aloe vera gel and vitamin E oil in a blender or food processor and blend. Place 1/3 cup carrier oils and beeswax in a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup, microwave on high for 20 seconds and stir. Repeat in ten second blocks until beeswax is fully melted (You can also heat by using a hot water bath).
Stir in remaining carrier oil(s), reheating if necessary. Run blender at low to medium speed, and then pour in melted oils in a thin stream. As the oils are blended in, the cream will turn white. As soon as you have a mayonnaise-like consistency, stop motor, add essential oils and pulse blend to mix in essential oils. Do not over blend or add if mixture is hot or you will destroy the integrity of the essential oils.
Transfer cream to glass jars while still warm because it thickens quickly. There, now you have just created the very best moisturizer for dry skin ever. Apply a small amount of cream to your body after you bathe and feel the difference. You will love it.
Now go have fun and relax.
