GARD Pro Not Registered

Have you ever gotten home from your trip to the spa, a day complete with a whole body massage, and felt like a whole new you?  Forget the smell of lavender that was in the mud room, the cucumber facial or even the pedicure–that wonderful massage is most responsible for your feeling of rejuvenation! But did they use aloe oil on your skin? As good as the expensive, high-quality massage oil that you splurged on for that massage at the spa is, I can show you one better. Aloe oil (that’s right, it’s not just good at giving you silky smooth hair!) can amp up your serene spa experience right at home for less than half the cost and with more health benefits! Learn how to make aloe oil for skin today!

Why the Skin?

Aloe vera oil, a more concentrated form of the aloe vera plant, can–and should–be applied to your skin, as it has many properties that can keep your skin glowing. Applying aloe oil to skin will:

  • hydrate, as aloe vera gel has a high-water content
  • moisturize, as the plant contains many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C and E and zinc
  • rejuvenate by inducing cell regeneration and encouraging blood circulation
  • help reduce the symptoms of many skin conditions including eczema and skin scarring

How to Make Aloe Vera Oil for Skin

Restore your peace of mind while rejuvenating your skin by learning how to make this essential-oil based aloe massage oil.  Here’s how to make your aloe massage an aromatherapy and health-boosting experience:

Things You Will Need:

  • 1/2 cup of aloe vera gel (either straight from the leaf or pre-packaged from a health food store)
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 2-3 drops of essential oil, your choice
  • bowl
  • a pot
  • stove burner

1. Combine your aloe vera gel (after extracting it properly from the aloe leaf, if you are using gel straight from an aloe leaf) and coconut oil in a bowl. The ratio of aloe vera gel to oil should be 1:1.

2. Add 2 or 3 drops of your favorite essential oil to the above ingredients and mix well. May I suggest rose, jasmine, peppermint or even a nice citrus essential oil? The addition of an essential oil will give your aloe massage oil an appealing aroma, which will calm the mind as well as give your oil more health benefits (which vary depending on the oil you choose). So pick out an essential oil (or two) to supplement and maximize the medicinal properties of aloe vera!

3. Heat your mixture in a pot on the stove on low heat for approximately 10 minutes.

4. Let your aloe oil cool before moving forward.

5. Once your aloe vera oil has cooled down, all that is left to do is to slather on that aloe oil! Have the ultimate massage experience by rubbing the oil on your body–your arms, legs, back, or chest. Ah, relaxing and moisturizing!

6. Store your aloe vera oil in a cool, dry place for approximately 2 weeks. Refrigerating your final product will also preserve the ingredients, making their health benefits stay stronger longer!

Aloe Oil Application Tips

Want an even better way to enjoy your aloe massage oil and all of its skin benefits? Use your new homemade aloe produce right after you step out of the shower and are squeaky clean. Your damp skin will better absorb the oil, letting your skin really soak in all the aloe and its wonderful skin benefits!

Another use for your aloe oil? Rekindle the intimacy in your relationship with some aloe oil. I’m not kidding! What makes for a more sensual night with the one you love than having an aloe massage session? Try taking turns giving each other the ultimate back rubs!

So there you have it: how to have a spa day at home. Go ahead and turn on some nice tranquil music, light a few candles and massage away with your aloe oil!

    I’ve had a little aloe plant on my windowsill for only a week now. I’ve kept it in its original plastic pot and placed it in a terra cotta pot. Ive noticed the edges of the leaves have begun to turn brownish in color and start to curl inward. What am I doing wrong? I water it fairly frequently (maybe every two or three days) and I’m not sure if the plant is getting too much/not enough sun.

    • Jenny says

      Too much sun and water. Water it 1 time a week in the summer and less in the winter. Move it to a spot with a little less sun

    Can I use dried aloe Vera leaves instead of the gel so I can prolonged the shelf life of the infuse oil? Would it be as effective?

  6. Phoenix Tear says

    First time on your site and it’s definitely going into my bookmarks.
    I was wondering if adding Vitamin E or a little honey would help to give the finished oil a more stable “shelf life “? I’m looking for a natural way to preserve it so it doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

    I have been using raw Aloe Vera under my eyes and i cant not believe how my wrinkles nearly disappear.
    I started using on my thighs and saw a huge difference how smooth my skin is now. I have used the most expensive creams and never got the same results as Aloe.

  8. Kiannaa says

    Great share! —idea: Try infusing a little dried Rosemary in the mix (then strain through cheesecloth after infusion process). Rosemary will also prolong shelf life. (and you could add some vitamin E caps to help further).

  9. Ellen Kunselman says

    Essential oils should not be heated, you will loose the healing properties if you do that. Allow the aloe and coconut oil to cool down to 77 degrees, then add your essential oils.
