If you haven’t tried one of our Aloe Jellies yet, you’re missing out! Not only are they another amazing way to enjoy your essential oils, but they have incredible benefits of their own. They are soothing to the skin, moisturizing, cooling, and safe to use on sensitive skin. Let’s take a look at some of the amazing uses for Aloe Jelly.
First things first, if you’re lucky enough to have an Aloe plant in your home, you might be tempted to use it as a carrier for your essential oils. But because it is water-based, fresh Aloe Vera will not properly emulsify your oils, which could result in neat application of your oils. Aloe Jelly, on the other hand, makes a perfect base for your favorite oils as it contains emulsifying and thickening agents.
Soothe the Sunburns
Aloe has long been a remedy for sun-burnt skin… and for good reason! Applying Aloe Jelly to your tender and burnt skin will be incredibly soothing, cooling, and moisturizing. It can give you much-needed relief when you need it the most. Plus, you can combine it with the skin-loving benefits of essential oils. Lavender, one of the most versatile oils out there, is incredibly soothing for the skin. You can use our pre-diluted Lavender Aloe Jelly or use this amazing DIY Sun Soother recipe.
The goodness doesn’t stop there! If your skin is irritated from something like shaving or waxing, reach for the Lavender Aloe Jelly!
Bug Bites, Poison Ivy… OH MY!
Calling all outdoorsy people! If you’ve spent any time hiking, camping and enjoying the great outdoors, you know just how much bug bites and itchy skin can absolutely ruin the experience.

Ease those Sore Muscles
There can be a number of reasons for sore muscles: exercise, yard work, or maybe you just slept wrong. Whatever the reason, Aloe Jelly is the perfect way to use essential oils to provide relief. Our Muscle Aloe Jelly has the perfect combination of essential oils to create a wonderful icy-hot effect. Plus it’s pre-diluted and ready to go.
