How To Make Lavender Body Gel with Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera if course is very well-known for its soothing qualities and this is why it is the main ingredient in most lotions for sunburnt or damaged skin.

Aloe Vera is such a simple ingredient. We can actually just snap off a leaf from the common house plant and apply the oozing moisture from the inside of the leaf directly to our skin. But we cannot use the house plant to make ingredients as it would go off too quickly.

So most Aloe Vera ingredients are actually dried and often made into a concentrate with added preservatives. This is how we most commonly add Aloe Vera to our skincare products and it does work well. We can easily make creams and lotions and even gels by adding gelling agents or even Xanthan gum, or in this case, the Konjac root powder.



Ingredients for Aloe Vera and Lavender Body Gel

  • 2 teaspoons or 10ml aloe vera concentrate
  • half a teaspoon or 2.5ml of calendula oil
  • half a teaspoon or 2.5ml of rosehip seed oil
  • 100ml basic gel, recipe below
  •  20 drops lavender essential oil

Basic gel ingredients

  • half a teaspoon or 2.5ml glycerin
  • 20 drops of preservative
  • 85ml spring water
  • 1g konjac glucomannan powder or xanthan gum 


Equipment

  • small glass jar
  • metal mixing spoon
  • whisk
  • 100ml bottle with pump

The Next Step To Making The Lavender Body Gel

Step Two

Now we need to add in the main ingredient. Add in the lavender oil and stir gently. We want to make sure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. So keep stirring for a little longer than you might imagine, to be sure.

Step Three

To finish making the lavender body gel, all we need to do is add it to a bottle with a pump dispenser. For an extra cooling effect on sunburnt skin, make sure to keep your lotion in the fridge.
