Stir to combine.


Continue mixing the aloe vera gel and jojoba oil until the mixture becomes creamy and cloudy.

Adding tea tree

Add 4 drops of tea tree oil and 4 drops of rose tree oil to the mixture.


Mix it all together and transfer it to an airtight container.

Note: You can substitute jojoba oil and also essential oils for any other oil that best suits your skin type.

I recommend you use pure aloe vera gel that is free of paraben, sulfate, color, and fragrance.

You can also use fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf but it won't emulsify and you will need to make a fresh batch every day before you apply.
