To create this moisturizing spray you will need:
1. A 1-2 oz. spray bottle, which can be purchased at target for about $1. You may use a larger bottle if desired. Just follow the ratio guidelines below.
2. A vegetable-based carrier oil such as almond, grape seed, avocado, olive, canola or coconut. I prefer almond or canola.
3. Pure aloe vera juice, which can be purchased at www.mynsp.com/edenessentials, or water. For better absorption and the nourishment plus vitamins and minerals used to protect the skin, aloe vera juice is the better option.
4. Optional – an essential oil of your choice, also available at www.mynsp.com/edenessentials. I prefer cellu-tone. Cellu-tone is a blend of cyprus, geranium, juniper, niaouli, grapefruit, rosemary, thyme and vetiver. It is formulated to tighten loose skin. It has a stimulating fragrance with fruity-floral undertones. Other suggestions are sandalwood and rose, jasmine, or lavender. Patchouli is a wonderful masculine fragrance, which also has toning properties.
Combine 1 part carrier oil and 1 part aloe vera juice (or water) in the spray bottle. Add 1-2 drops of essential oil per oz. of liquid. These essentials oils are very powerful and you do not want to over do it. Replace the sprayer nozzle.
Keep this moisturizer in your shower. After showering and before drying off, shake the bottle well to blend all ingredients. Spray 2-3 spritzes in the palm of your hand and massage the spray into each area of the body. You may need about 15 sprays. Dry off as usual. You will see and feel a pleasant barrier of moisture on your skin and you will experience a healthy glow.
You may also carry this in your purse to moisturize your hands after washing while out and about.
