Our 2 easy moisturizing body cream recipes to treat your skin naturally!
Apart from homemade body scrub, DIY body moisturizer is another nourishing treatment that helps you enjoy flawless beautiful skin. This is especially important in the summer when the majority of the skin is exposed to the sun and extra hydration is needed. This summer, we recommend that you swap products sold on the market, which are very often full of chemical substances, for a natural treatment that is worth it. Here are our two ideas to prepare without delay.
DIY moisturizer for non-greasy and light body to prepare in 20 minutes
To concoct this natural body moisturizer, first get the following ingredients:
- 1/2 cup distilled water
- 1/2 cup pure Aloe Vera gel
- 1/2 cup beeswax pellets
- 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil
- 1/4 cup jojoba oil
- 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
- 16 drops of essential oil of your choice
Combine distilled water with aloe vera gel in a bowl and set aside. Next, place the beeswax and oil in a double boiler and heat until the beeswax is melted. Heat the water/aloe vera mixture to about the same temperature as the beeswax. To do this, use either a water bath or a microwave. Then, put the beeswax and oil in a food processor and let cool for a few minutes.
Turn on the robot and very slowly pour the water/aloe vera mixture into it. Keep pouring until the mixture begins to emulsify. Stop occasionally to scrape the sides of the bowl. Continue blending and pouring for 15 minutes or until you are satisfied with the consistency of your homemade body moisturizer. Finally, incorporate the vitamin E oil, as well as the essential oils and mix well. Divide moisturizer into containers and use for up to 3 months.
The Best Natural Body Moisturizer Contains Shea Butter
The benefits of shea butter, you probably already know them: this precious ingredient deeply hydrates the skin while keeping it young thanks to the vitamins A, D, E and F in content. Here’s why shea butter should be an integral part of the composition of the best body moisturizer! Find out how to prepare one in the following paragraphs.
The ingredients needed:
- ½ cup shea butter
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup sweet almond oil

Melt the shea butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil in a double boiler over medium heat. Then add the essential oils and stir to mix well. Transfer to a bowl and put in the fridge to chill. Let the mixture cool completely until the oils solidify. Once the mixture has completely cooled, whip it using a hand mixer. Pour your homemade body moisturizer into a clean mason jar and close with a lid. If desired, attach a pretty label with the name and/or ingredients of your moisturizer. Thus, this one will also make a good original gift for your mom or friend.
