All the Ways You Can Use Aloe Jellies – All Year Long!

If you haven’t tried 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. Plus, there are so, so many ways Aloe Jelly can be used!

 

Naturally Soothe a Sunburn

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 Aloe Jelly

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.

We’ve all been burnt by the sun. If you forgot to reapply sunscreen or maybe just missed a spot, keep the Lavender Aloe Jelly nearby. Not only does the Aloe help soothe your red and tender skin, but Lavender essential oil is known for its ability to revitalize and soothe skin, including sunburns and minor cooking burns.

Soothing, cooling and incredibly hydrating, Aloe Jellies are a hidden gem. Try applying Lavender Aloe Jelly to your skin right after a shower, especially right after shaving, to help soothe and hydrate irritated legs. If you’re going on vacation, make sure to pack a seriously skin-soothing Lavender Aloe Jelly to use if your tan turns into a sunburn without warning.

Help Ease 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.

We highly recommend the addition of ½ tsp of Polysorbate 80 to encourage the carrier oil to disperse. However, if you choose not to add an emulsifier, please shake well before each use. To use, spray the detangler into your hair and gently comb through your hair.

*To extend the shelf life of this product refrigeration is necessary.

Instead, you can make your own DIY shampoo that’s more nourishing for your hair, helps with an oily scalp and adds some amazing essential oils. We have a great recipe you can try and see which one works best for your hair!

    1. It is too thick for a rollerball, unfortunately. You’ll have the best luck with a flip-top squeeze bottle.

    1. Our Aloe Jellies already have the necessary emulsifiers and preservatives. So all you have to do is add essential oils! No extra preservatives required.

  1. WOW. Chris thank you so much !!! I am new to this essential oil thing and am a disabled nurse .due to latex allergy and fibromyalgia . Would never have known if I didn’t read your reply. Thanks again just goes to show you you can always learn something new.

  2. I am not sure if people realize that if they are allergic to latex , they might be allergic to shea butter, aloe vera and cocoa butter and coconut. These things all have the same protein in them that latex does and so I cannot use any of them for diy projects even tho I want to. I have experimented and have had a reaction to all of them which is frustrating because most recipes (I have yet to find any that do not) use these ingredients and do not list subs to use instead of them.

    1. Chris, have you tried mango butter? You could easily use mango instead of Shea or cocoa and a tad bit more beeswax for any DIY you want to try. Good luck!
