100% Natural Homemade Body Moisturiser

Homemade Moisturiser

I used the recipe below to make about 2 cups of moisturiser for about €5 which is absolutely delicious on the skin. If you’re looking for an easy-to-make, affordable, 100% natural moisturiser look no further.

How to Make 100% Natural Moisturiser

  • Using a double boiler to melt half a cup of almond or grape seed oil and 20g of beeswax (typically half a bar) that has been either grated or cut into small pieces.
  • Mix 1 cup of aloe vera gel, a teaspoon of almond of Vitamin E oil and essential oils (optional).
  • Once the beeswax is melted in the almond oil, remove the mixture from the heat and place on a tea-towel on a counter or table.
  • Whisk or blend the aloe vera gel mixture into the oil / beeswax mixture bit by bit.

This recipe is an edited version of one that I found on a website Remedies and Herbs, which no longer exists.

I have been able to make this recipe completely zero waste by buying refills of almond oil and aloe vera gel in their original containers from Bomar.ie in Wicklow.  I’ve also successfully sourced ‘naked’ beeswax from a local beekeeper but if you don’t have one close to you I’ve seen it unwrapped in most health shops for about €3.

    1. I get a good 4-5 months out of a jar, especially if I used essential oils in it. I usually make two jars, one of which I keep in the fridge until the first one is used up. I only moisturise once a week, which is probably why it takes me so long to get through a jar.
