Are you loving all those DIY anti-cellulite creams, but you’re not a fan of coffee? This is just what you are looking for!
Grapefruit is one of the most effective essential oils to fight cellulite. And it’s the star ingredient of this easy lotion!
What you’ll need:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup aloe vera gel
12 drops of grapefruit essential oil
Melt 1/4 cup coconut oil in the microwave on a low setting. It shouldn’t be hot, just barely melted.
Add 1 cup of aloe vera gel to a jar (or something with a lid on it).
As much as I love it fresh from the plant, I recommend using store bought aloe vera gel. You can find it at most drugstores and health stores. They contain (natural) preservatives that will help prolong the shelf life of your lotion.
Add your melted coconut oil to the aloe vera gel. Then add your grapefruit essential oil. I added 12 drops but you might use more or less depending on your preference.
It’s time to shake things up!
I’ve had my personal struggles with aloe vera lotions in the past, but I have finally found the perfect method to mix the oils with the gel.
Put a lid on your jar/container. Start shaking the jar as if your life depends on it. Just until your lotion has a smooth consistency.
Give the coconut oil some time to harden and it’s ready for use! You can keep it in the fridge for an extra refreshing lotion.
