Almond Oil Lotion

I want to teach you how to make Almond oil Lotion but before that I want to quickly share this with you.
Just recently, a friend of a friend was diagnosed of cancer, skin cancer to be precise. It brought a wave of sadness and worry, because as a product junkie, I knew the handwriting was already on the wall- " Stop the usage of chemical- lade' cosmetics". I decided to take the "desire path" in skin care as other skin care therapist had, and I must confess, its been a worthwhile experience. Why not take this walk with me?

My go-to lotion is my custom made lotion consisting of;

1. Coconut oil, which makes my skin very soft and dissolves make up residue, has long lasting and anti- ageing benefits,

2. Cocoa butter; which fades scars, prevents oxidation of cells and soothening of sensitive skin.

3. Beeswax; used in skincare products to remove unwanted hairs.

4. Glycerine; Cleanser, toner, moisturizer, anti- acne, brightener, sunscreen and scar remover.

5. Sweet Almond oil: To treat eczema and psoriasis and remove sun tan. Almond oil is light and can easily penetrate deep into the skin, softening and breaking down dirts making it a good cleanser.

6.Vitamin E: Acts As a Moisturizer,. Reverses Premature Skin Aging, treats sunburns, lightens Dark Spots, Acts As A Cleansing Agent, heals Dry Fingernails and soothes pain from cold sores.

7.Aloe Vera: Anti- ageing, moisturizing, treating acne.

8. Vanilla: I absolutely love this.

Vanilla Fragrance

Beeswax and the plant waxes help to keep an emulsion from separating into its oil and liquid components, especially in cosmetics and personal care products that require a creamy consistency.

What you need


1/2 cup Almond oil. (Sweet almond).

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup beeswax pastilles.

1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil

2 tablespoon Cocoa butter

10 drops of rosewater

1 tbsp of aloe vera gel.

Coconut Oil
Vanilla fragrance


Sweet Almond Oil


1. Melt your beeswax and butters in a double boiler, then add the liquid oils and allow to melt.

2. Pour these oils into your blender and allow to cool.

3. While that is happening mix together the other liquids. You can use just aloe vera but the glycerine does add an extra silkiness. Aloe vera is great to add for sensitive skins.

4. In the bottom of the blender,it will appear to be setting but when you move the jug you see that it is still liquid though much thicker than when you first poured it in. Don’t let it over solidify, though there may be a small amount on the sides that is set. If so just get a small spatula or wooden chopstick and scrape it down – don’t worry if it looks a bit lumpy at this stage.

5. Now turn the blender on to a low speed and start to pour the waters in in a slow trickle. If the blender gets stuck turn it off, scrape the sides down with a spatula and turn it back on again adding a bit more of the water part at a time till the full amount is incorporated. After which the mixture should have a creamy look.

6. Mix in the vitamin E and pour into your containers.

The health benefit of Almond oil is proven in the 2007 Edition of the Journal of Cosmetics Dermatology thus:

"Topical almond applicaton is capable of preventing structural damage caused by UV irradiation and it was also found useful in deccelerating photoaging process."
