This moisturizer is very good for dry skin. It’s especially effective in winters. Learned to make it from my mother-in-law. Hubby absolutely loves it. Keeps it in office too.
Few of his colleagues tried it and found it so good that they kept helping themselves from his stock. So last year I made an extra bottle for them.
As winters are beginning here, this Sunday we made this cream again and he has taken a bottle to office today…
Raw/unprocessed wax - 100 gms
Olive oil - 200 ml
Mustard oil - 200 ml
Aloe vera leaves - 200 gms
any fragrant oil of your choice - for fragrance
- Remove skin from aloe vera leaves. Chop the fleshy inner parts in to small pieces.
- Pour both the oils in a deep bottomed pan and warm them.
- Now add the wax and chopped aloe vera leaves. Partially cover the pan. The mixture will start to splutter and boil. If the foam starts to come up stir in between.
- Let it simmer for 2 minutes. Then switch off gas. Allow to cool a little. Then strain with a muslin cloth and store in a bottle.
