This lotion is incredibly silky with no greasy after-feeling. Your skin will feel soft, supple and hydrated! Perfect for the upcoming winter months!

Aloe Body Cream: What Exactly is AloeAloe Body Cream: What Exactly is Aloe

So what is Aloe exactly? Well, most of us know it is a plant, and the gel that you squeeze from the plant is a must have to help soothe a summer sunburn. However, there are so many other uses and benefits from this spiky looking plant. Aloe barbadensis miller, or Aloe Vera, is a succulent plant that is native to the Mediterranean region as well as East and South Africa area. It is an incredibly adaptable plant and can now be found on just about any continent! Aloe Vera is one of the oldest known plants that has been used medicinally and can be traced back over 6,000 years to ancient Egypt. Ancient carvings contain images of the aloe plant, which they referred to as the “plant of immortality.” It was supposedly given as a gift to deceased pharaohs.

There is more to this plant than the use of its gel for sunburn, though. It contains many nutrients and minerals that are important to the body. Manganese, potassium, magnesium, zinc, copper, calcium, sodium, iron and chromium. Along with these nutrients are many body-healthy vitamins such as niacin, folic acid, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and B12 plus, vitamin C and E. That is a lot of nutrients for such an unpretentious looking plant to have!

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Aloe Vera UsesAloe Body Cream Recipe: Aloe Vera Uses

What can Aloe Vera be used for? Well, there are many uses for this plant! Most know that it is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. The range for medical treatment has widened profoundly in the past ten years. Since it has been developed into a capsule form, Aloe can be used to help treat respiratory disorders such as bronchitis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, or hepatitis. Studies have been done on how Aloe Vera can even be used as a possible treatment for breast cancer!

Topically, Aloe Vera is amazing! Since it is best known for is skin care properties, you can find aloe in all types of bath and body products. It’s rich nutrients and vitamins are perfect to help keep your skin healthy and glowing! Since it is an anti-inflammatory and an anti-fungal, it is perfect for those who suffer from acne or psoriasis. Aloe can even make the skin firmer as well as keeping it hydrated and reducing any wrinkles or fine lines.

Another amazing benefit Aloe Vera has to offer: it is also wonderful to use in hair products. It can help control frizz, add luster and strength to the hair. It also works as a great rinse for oily hair. Aloe is also good to help prevent dandruff or by rejuvenating the hair follicles which helps reduce hair loss. 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Other Uses for Aloe VeraAloe Body Cream Recipe: Other Uses for Aloe Vera

One last thing before we get started on our recipe: Nature’s Garden sells Aloe Vera Powder for external use only. We do not sell it as a food item. The information above is for educational purposes only and is not to be used as medical advice. Now let’s talk about some of the ingredients we will be using in the lotion!

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Argan OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Argan Oil

Argan oil absorbs beautifully into the skin, making it a fantastic oil to include in your haircare and skincare formulations. This luxurious oil allows the skin to breathe and is used in many acne-fighting formulas. It is a perfect addition to this lotion!

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Mango ButterAloe Body Cream Recipe: Mango Butter

Mango Butter is a rich, intensive moisturizer that helps protect the skin from UV rays and is perfect for those who want to help prevent aging skin. It will help soften wrinkles, smooth fine lines and help improve the look of your skin.

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Stearic AcidAloe Body Cream Recipe: Stearic Acid

Stearic Acid is used in all types of bath and body products. When it is used in lotions or creams it acts as a thickener. If we had chosen to not use stearic acid in this recipe, it would not have that thick, creamy texture to it.

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Fractionated Coconut OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Fractionated Coconut Oil

This lovely oil looks different from the regular Coconut Oil, it has the same benefits. The only difference is that the whole coconut oil has had certain components of the oil removed leaving a clear, shelf-stable oil that can be used for many things such as medical, cosmetics or even industrial. Fractionated Coconut Oil also makes a very good carrier oil.

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Orchid Rain Fragrance OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Orchid Rain Fragrance Oil

We chose this fragrance for it’s lovely, fresh spa-like scent! This fragrance oil is a unique combination of fresh orchids, peony, water lily, watercress, aloe vera, and bamboo. Very fresh and clean! The perfect fragrance for this light, moisturizing lotion!

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Ingredients Available at Nature’s Garden

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You’ll Need

  • Distilled Water
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stainless Steel Spoon
  • Stovetop
  • (2) Pots
  • Stick Blender
  • Scale

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

  • 706 grams of Distilled Water
  • 80 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 36 grams Argan Oil
  • 48 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax
  • 20 grams Mango Butter
  • 16 grams Stearic Acid
  • 10 grams Vitamin E Oil
  • 14 grams Optiphen Preservative
  • 12 grams Orchid Rain Fragrance Oil
  • 25 grams Aloe Leaf Powder

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on preparing your lotion, it’s always best to take a moment to prep your work area. Go ahead and clean and sanitize your work area, equipment and packaging supplies. Also, have your ingredients at an easy reach. This will help streamline your process of making the lotion without having any interruptions. Also, always use cooking equipment that is no longer used for cooking.

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Water Phase

Making any type of body butter, lotion or cream is done in four phases. The first phase is the water phase. You will be preparing your water. We suggest using distilled water. So using a pot that you no longer will be using for food, weigh out 850 grams of distilled water. While you will not need quite this much, some of the water will evaporate. It is always better to have too much water than not enough. Place the pot of water on your stove top. Now heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to keep the water at this temperature for 20 minutes. This ensures that the heat will destroy any bacteria that may be in the water.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Aloe Leaf Powder

While you are waiting for the water to heat up, you can prepare the aloe leaf powder. Go ahead and take a tea bag. Add in the 25 grams of the Aloe Leaf Powder.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Aloe Leaf PowderAloe Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Aloe Leaf Powder

Next, when your water has reached the correct temperature and has been held for the 20 minutes, go ahead and remove the pot from the stove. In a bowl, weigh out 706 grams of the distilled water and add the aloe tea bag to it. You can go ahead and set this bowl aside for the time being. Your water will turn a shade similar to Apple Cider Vinegar.

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Oil Phase

The next phase is the Oil Phase. We will be using the double boiler method for this step. Have 2 pots ready to use. One pot should be able to fit into a larger pot. In the small pot, go ahead and weigh out all the following ingredients: 36 grams Argan Oil, 80 grams of Fractionated Coconut Oil, 16 grams of Stearic Acid, 48 grams of Silky Emulsifying Wax and 20 grams of Mango Butter.

To the second pot, add just a few inches worth of tap water and place it on your stove top. Turn your heat to medium and place the smaller pot inside the larger pot. Next, you will heat the oils and butter to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally until all the ingredients are melted. Once these ingredients have reached the correct temperature, you can remove the smaller pot from the double boiler and turn off your heat. 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Mixing PhaseAloe Body Cream Recipe: The Mixing Phase

Before you get started on the third phase, the mixing phase, you will want to make sure the distilled water you heated earlier is at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Both the water and the oils need to be at the same temperature before you start mixing. If your water has cooled too much go ahead and heat it back to 140 degrees. (Before you combine the ingredients together, you can remove the aloe tea bag from the water.) So once both water and oils are at the same temperature, add them both to a large deep mixing bowl. Next, you will take your stick blender and mix the ingredients together. As you are mixing, you will notice that the mixture is turning white in color. This simply means that your lotion is starting to emulsify

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Cool Down PhaseAloe Body Cream Recipe: The Cool Down Phase

Now you need to check the temperature of the mixture. It should be cooled to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Since you will be adding the Optiphen in, the temperature needs to be below 140 degrees. If Optiphen is added at too high a temperature, the preserving qualities of the preservative may be destroyed.  Now once the temperature of the cream has cooled to the 120 degrees, you can now weigh in 14 grams of Optiphen, 10 grams of vitamin E and 12 grams of Orchid Rain fragrance oil. Then, once again using your stick blender, mix these additions into your emulsified water and oil mixture.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Packaging Up Your ProductAloe Body Cream Recipe: Packaging Up Your Product

As the cream is cooling, stick blend occasionally to ensure that it is emulsifying properly. Also, as your lotion cools, it will thicken up. Finally, after your cream has cooled and reached room temperature, you can place the cream in your jars and place the lids on top! This recipe makes five 8 ounce jars of body cream!

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: That’s All For Now

We hope you enjoyed this new recipe from us at Nature’s Garden. This cream is thick, luscious and leaves your skin feeling silky and soft with absolutely no greasy after feeling! These would make perfect gifts to make for your friends, family or to add to your line of bath and body products.

These trees are ideal in climates that are in zone 7-12, which have short winters and low humidity. Also, they prefer areas of full sun. Your pomegranate trees will need about 20 feet diameter to be able to grow into. However, you can trim your tree to keep it more of a shrub size and you will only need about 10 feet. If the winter is too frigid and your trunk was damaged, it is possible to train new suckers to replace the trunk. Although this plant can survive a drought, this will cause a smaller harvest. On the other side, too much water due to over irrigating, heavy summer rain, or high humidity can result in fruits cracking or other problems. Plus, uneven water can result in issues, too. So, you will want to find a perfect balance for watering.

While it is not necessary to prune your tree, it may help increase your harvest. When your pomegranate tree is about a year old, you can prune some of the trunks. You will want to keep somewhere between one and six of these trunks. Since pomegranates naturally grow in bush form, there will be plenty of suckers to choose from. Just be warned with pruning you can reduce your harvest. This is because your harvest will mostly come from new shoots growing off of branches that are older than a year.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?

What is resveratrol and what does It do? Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol that is created by a few different plants. You may know resveratrol best from red wine, but it can be found in other plants, too. For example, the Japanese knotweed contains this herb, too. Whether you consume it from natural sources or get a resveratrol supplement, there are tons of benefits for your body. Plus, there are even benefits that this cosmetic herb can provide for your skin! At Natures Garden we sell the resveratrol extract powder herb for creating skin-loving bath and body products. However, there are many known benefits that this herb can provide for your whole body! Let’s talk about some of the benefits that resveratrol has for you!

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Growing Conditions

There are a few different natural sources that we know of that contain resveratrol. For this cosmetic herb, it can be harvested from two different sources. First, we have the Japanese knotweed that is a hardy plant that is able to survive against a bombardment of pests, fungus and disease in its native environment. Second, we can get resveratrol from the skin of red grapes. Both these plants can be used to extract the same herb. No matter the source, there are many beneficial properties found in resveratrol. If you are interested, you can read below to learn more about both plants.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Red Grape SkinsWhat is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Red Grape Skins

Grapes require an area that is either full sun or gets direct sunlight in the morning. Also, most grapes require a warm climate, which the American grapes being the best for the cold. Their soil should be well draining, deep, loose, and moist due to a light layer of mulch. If you are growing new plants, then you will need to care and protect your plant for about three years before you get a harvest.

Once you get a bunch of grapes, you will know by the color. At first, they will be a bright green and they will turn to a deep, juicy red once they are ready. Just know that your grapes won’t continue to ripen after being picked. If you have grapes that won’t ripen, then you can prune some of the foliage to let more sun in for grapes that aren’t ripening. You can tell when your red grapes are ripe because the color will be a dark red without any visible green. Also, you can taste a few from different bunches to determine whether they are ready.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: The Japanese KnotweedWhat is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: The Japanese Knotweed

The Japanese knotweed, or Polygonum cuspidatum, is a plant that is native to Japan. While this hardy plant is considered a weed in its country of origin, it is not a danger to its native environment. In fact, the resveratrol harvested from it has quite a few beneficial properties. However, when this hardy plant is moved to a new environment it can become an invasive species. Since the plants are native to Japan, they are integrated into the local ecosystem and have a good amount of competition.

However, when this species moves into a new area without the same competition it has a leg up on all the other organisms. This can lead to the native plants in this new environment to go extinct, which can be detrimental to an environment as organisms rely on one another. This animal may be a food source for another or it may have been a predator that would keep the prey population levels steady. So, in areas like the US and many other places, we would consider this plant an invasive species. This means that there is likely a ban on planting this herb if you live in an area other than Japan, China, or Korea.

Whether you are looking for a cosmetic herb for your products or a supplement to promote your health, resveratrol is a good antioxidant to try out.

One of the most important parts of making lotion is the emulsifier. This is the ingredient that keeps everything together because the oils and water that are being mixed would separate otherwise.
