Aloe Vera Moisturizer
a wonderfully rejuvenating DIY skin care recipe
Sharon shares her favorite natural skin care recipe for an enriched Aloe Vera Moisturizer.
Sharon explains that her grandmother always used plain old extra virgin olive oil as a natural moisturizing treatment. But she likes adding aloe because it is not only rich in nutrients, it has significant healing properties.
It's the gel that is expressed from a leaf of the aloe vera plant that contains the most beneficial properties which include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants.
Because of her sensitive skin, Sharon started adding the gel expressed from her aloe vera plant to a little bit of olive oil to help condition her skin and take advantage of the healing properties of the aloe vera.
She thinks everyone should have an easy to grow aloe plant!
Then you'd have an endless supply of 100% aloe for your skin care recipes, burn treatments, and wound healing.
Sharon says this homemade skin care recipe works like a charm! It makes her skin is soft and smooth. It also has helped keep her dry skin and eczema under control too.
- 1 tablespoon of quality extra virgin

large leaf from an aloe vera plant

morning and night
