Natural Body Care Recipe's


In this article we learn about creating a few natural body care products at home. Making your body care products gives you complete control over the ingredients used in the preparation of the product. This is an excellent opportunity to reduce chemicals and synthetics by using products straight out of your kitchen. And remember that it is only through education, reading, that we can learn how to avoid those harmful chemicals and live a healthier life. This is also a good opportunity to save money on body care products. Remember to check for sensitivity to the home made products by testing a small square of skin on the forearm. Check out the following natural body care recipes for body lotion, body creme, and hand cream.

Rosewater & Glycerin Lotion

Beautify dry skin with this home made natural lotion recipe.

2 tablespoons glycerin
2 tablespoons corn flower (cornstarch)
� cup distilled water
2 tablespoons rosewater

Mix the above ingredients together in a microwave proof bowl. Heat the mixture until boiling about 1 to 2 minutes in the microwave on High (stirring every 30 seconds). The lotion should look clear. Next, stir thoroughly, cool completely. Wait till the lotion is cool and then pour the lotion into a clean container with a lid. If the lotion is too thick add in a few drops of water to thin out the lotion.

Stretch Mark Cream

Reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the body with this natural body care formula.

1/4 cup cocoa butter
1 tablespoon wheat germ oil
1 teaspoon light sesame seed oil
1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
2 teaspoons grated beeswax
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the above ingredients together. Heat the mixture until it has melted completely. Take the mixture and stir well and add the vanilla extract. Allow to cool and then store clean jar with a lid.

� cup Vaseline
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons glycerin
1 tablespoon liquid lecithin

Melt the Vaseline in heat proof microwave bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and heat again until the mixture is smooth and well mixed. Pour into container with a lid.

Many of the natural ingredients included in the body care products are available at local health and food stores.
