health and beauty sundays: cooling aloe vera and lavender body cream

Aloe vera lavender cream


1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup aloe vera gel

5-8 drops lavender essential oil

2-3 drops citronella essential oil


Combine all the ingredients with an electric whisk. Mix until the mixture has a light and fluffy texture.  Store in a sterilised lidded container.


This recipe is particularly useful for those travelling in hot counties and may have mosquito repelling properties. Do not use on broken skin and always seek professional medical advice if you have any doubts. This cream should be stored in a cool, dry place – or refrigerated to keep the texture.
