DIY: How to Make Aloe Vera Oil for Face, Hair Growth, Skin, Scars, Sunburn & Stretch Marks
This Aloe Vera oil has multiple benefits and it can be used on face, scalp, scars, stretch marks, sun burn and for hair loss. Making Aloe Vera oil at home is very easy and can be done in a matter of minutes, but only the soaking part takes time. This Aloe Vera oil is a must for mothers, who have young children at home, as they heal small wounds and scars very quickly. Aloe Vera is very gentle on the skin and can be used for all skin types. I used to massage my son with fresh aloevera, when he was just a few months old, as he had very dry skin. Aloe Vera is perfectly called "Wound healing plant" as it is famous for treating small burns and cuts. One thing I like about this oil is that it keeps well for years. This oil prevents acne, if used as a face massage oil, before bath. It can be massaged into the scalp for treating scalp infections and it also prevents dandruff. This oil is also amazing for treating stretch marks and sun burn. I have used coconut oil to make this Aloe Vera oil, as coconut oil also helps in healing. This oil has a strong smell of Aloe Vera, which some might not like. I don't mind the smell because I know how effective this oil is. But if the smell is bothering you, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil after straining the oil. Try using virgin coconut oil for making this oil. You can make a big batch of this oil and use it year round and it is ideal both for adults and for children. To make this Aloe Vera oil, take a fresh Aloe Vera leaf and cut of the thorns on both sides of the leaf. Wipe the greenish juice with a tissue and cut it into very small pieces. Take the cut Aloe Vera in a dark bottle and top it with coconut oil till it is full immersed. Keep it in a cool, dark place for 2 months. Strain and your homemade Aloe Vera oil is ready!
1. Cut a fresh Aloe Vera leaf from the plant. When you cut the leaf from the plant, you will find slimy green juice on the surface of the leaf. Wipe away the juice completely with a tissue.
2. Cut the thorns from the sides of the leaf and cut into small pieces.
3. Add the cut pieces into a dark bottle. Add the virgin coconut oil to the cut pieces, till the pieces are fully immersed.
4. Close the bottle tightly. Keep it in a dark place for at least 2 months. Strain and your homemade Aloe Vera oil is ready!
Use only fresh Aloe Vera leaf.
Don't wash the leaf in water, use only a tissue or a soft cloth to clean it.
Use a dark colored bottle to store the Aloe Vera oil.
