Directions

This natural face cream's moisturizing abilities come from a combination of two powerful oils from jojoba and coconut. It also contains aloe whose antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds help heal acne, irritations, and other skin damage. Grapefruit, on the other hand, contains compounds that help remove dead skin and revitalize skin layers, leaving your face healthy and beautiful for years to come.

  1. In a double boiler, melt the coconut oil, jojoba oil, and beeswax.(5 minutes)
  2. Take the mixture off the stove and set it aside to cool. You may also place it in the fridge.(30 minutes)
  3. Once it begins turning more solid and opaque, place it a blender and start processing.
  4. As the blender is on, slowly and gradually add the aloe vera gel along with grapefruit essential oil drops. Keep blending until it turns smooth, fluffy, and creamy.(10 minutes)
  5. Transfer the cream to a clean jar and store it in the fridge or in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.
