Fighting Dry Skin Eczema, Psoriasis, rashes? Here is a lovely Aloe Vera Rose home remedy that helps ease some of the symptoms.
With the cold weather this winter I thought this recipe might come in handy, something fun to make while in hibernation mode, that will help give your skin a little extra TLC. I discovered this recipe From The Nerdy Housewife, one of my favourite places i go to find DYI Home Natural remedies. Iâ€™ve also started a new Healing with Herbs Board on Pinterest with more Home Made Natural Remedy Recipes. I think this is a great way to be creative, save money, and use healthy natural non toxic products. Keep Warm and Hydrated! Â
To make the Aloe Rose Gel you will need
- 1 part aloe vera gelÂ ( pure 100 % aloe vera gel with no additives )
- 1 part fresh rose petals
Use 1/3 cup aloe vera gel, blend it with 1/3 cup petals. ( You can pack up the measuring cup pretty tightly with flowers, but you don’t have to be overly precise with this )
Place the petals and aloe vera gel in a mini food processor. Blend them together thoroughly. You’ll notice that it gets a little frothy in the process, but that’s not a problem.
After blending, strain the now pink aloe juice from the rose petal pieces. Because the mixture is so thick, you’ll need to rub it through a mesh sieve or something similar. Squeeze and press on the petals to get every last drop of goodness out.
Storing Your Aloe rose Gel
Store your finished aloe rose skin soother in the refrigerator. It should stay fresh for a week or so. For longer storage, freeze the gel in ice cube trays, then store individual cubes in the freezer for future use.
Aloe rose skin soother can be used for:
- bug bites
- dry skin
- razor burn
- minor cuts and scrapes
- radiation burns
