Aloe Vera happens to be my go-to solution for sunburn problems. With its multi-beneficial properties, this plant is much more than just a mere house decorative. Its succulent, jaggy leaves infused with clear gel works magically on sunburns, bug bites and many other skin irritations. Today I will tell you guys, how to whip up your very own Aloe lotion at home. Sounds luxurious, doesn’t it? I bet, once you start using this homemade lotion, you will never want to buy a branded one from that drugstore again!

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Aloe Vera gel
  • Extra-virgin coconut oil
  • Essential oils of your choice (it is optional; but I love using lavender or sandalwood oil)
  • A mixing bowl
  • A blender
  • A whisker
  • A glass container for storing

Method:

  • Scoop out all the gel from two thick Aloe Vera leaves and blend it well
  • Now pour half a cup of extra-virgin coconut oil in a bowl
  • Add the blended Aloe Vera gel to this
  • Start whisking the concoction with a hand whisker for about 15 minutes, until you get a cottony, frosting-like consistency
  • Add a few drops of essential oil if you like, and mix well
  • And your magic lotion is ready
  • Transfer your whipped cream into a glass container and store it in the refrigerator. It will last you for a month

Rub it all over your body before sleeping, turn the AC on and allow the moisture to lock into your skin. Happy Pampering!
