Ingredients Required:
Aloe vera
Extra virgin coconut oil
Lavender oil
Peppermint oil (optional)


Use fresh aloe vera derived from aloe vera leaves for the preparation of this body lotion. For this, carefully scoop out the gel from the aloe vera leaves. If these aren't available, store-bought aloe vera gel can also be used.

Take the gel and blend it in a blender to make it smoother. Then, add two-three scoops of extra virgin coconut oil to this. This type of coconut oil is lighter than the average coconut oil.

It gets absorbed on to the skin more easily. And it also wouldn't transfer on to your clothes and stain them. Add a few drops of lavender oil, or any oil of your choice.

This would make the lotion smell amazing. You can add a few drops of peppermint oil too, if you want. This would only add to a more cooling, tingly effect and it can effectively soothe an irritated skin.

Mix up all the ingredients and store the mixture in an air-tight container.

It will look as good as a store-bought lotion for sure. Store it and use it as you like, ensuring that you do use it after a shower.

There you go, your perfect moisturiser for smooth skin is ready to be used, at less than half the money you would actually spend on it if you'd bought it from a store. Hope you enjoyed this post!
