Homemade Aloe Vera Moisturizer
Aloe Vera has long been known around here for the product to reach for when you are sun burned. Keeping the skin moist helps with the pain as well as the healing without peeling. We have found that adding a few items to our Aloe Vera Gel turns it into a wonderful moisturizer that can be used as a toner on your face.
This mixture (short of the witch hazel) also comforts a sun burn, will calm angry areas from a rash or scratch, and it helps to calm my eczema areas when they are being difficult.
1/2 cup purified water
3 drops rose essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops chamomile essential oil
3 tablespoons aloe vera gel
1/8 cup witch hazel
Combine all ingredients in a jar and stir until well mixed.
Use as needed with a cotton ball or pour in to a spray bottle.
Make sure to shake it before using as it will settle and separate.
Apply on face and let it absorb. It works great as a toner and will not interfere with your morning facial routine.
