Have you ever squeezed gel from an aloe leaf? That stuff is gooey! I had to sacrifice three fairly good sized leaves today for a new recipe I tried. It's on page 114 of Organic Body Care Recipes by Stephanie Tourles,
It's called a cleansing cream but doubles as a face and body cream. It has most of the same ingredients in the other recipe I use daily on my face, but instead of cocoa butter it has aloe vera gel and vitamin e oil. Can't go wrong with those ingredients! The best part was that I already had every ingredient, although my aloe plant might not be real happy tonight. 1/4 cup is a lot of aloe! Used lavender, geranium and a bit of ylang ylang essential oils for added benefit.
