DIY: vitamin e cream (take 2)


a while back i wrote about a vitamin e cream i had concocted to help in the healing of my newest tattoo. well, it worked so well, i started using it on eczema outbreaks, and it actually helped heal those as well.

that cream was more balm-like, though, and i've been craving a creamier healing moisturizer, so i'm back with another vitamin e cream, and this one is so easy you have no reason not to try it. plus, i've been using it for the last week, and not only do i smell so ridiculously good i have to keep from licking my own skin, but my elbows have never been softer, which is a miracle. seriously, that shit was like sandpaper not even two weeks ago.


you will need
1 cup coconut oil
7-8 vitamin e capsules
optional: 3 tablespoos sweet almond oil

this will make enough for three 125 ml mason jar - adjust to fit any size/quantity!


1. place the coconut oil in a medium-sized bowl.

2. break out your hand-held blender (or warm up your arm for a good beating), and blend on a medium setting for 30 seconds (longer if you're doing this by hand).

2. pierce each capsule and squeeze into the oil. (if you're using the sweet almond oil, or any other type of moisturizing oil, add it in before the vitamin e).

3. gently blend the mixture with a spoon before picking up your hand-held blender again and letting her rip for 30 seconds.

and that's it.

there are a ton of ways you could customize this moisturizing cream - different oils (like avocado or olive) or different essential oils to scent the mixture (i'd probably use sweet orange or grapefruit for a citrus-y blend).


let me know if you try this out! i'd love to hear the results others have with it.

Tried it this morning, and I love it! Once I'd put the mixture into a glass jar I put it into the fridge for a little while to firm up (my kitchen was warm so the oil became quite runny), and now it's perfect.

I'm going to share this recipe to my blog (with a link to your site, of course), if you don't mind?

Vitamin E is very essential nutrient for the health of the skin. It is strongly recommended to use a nourishing cream rich in vitamin E.

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser
compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at
your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer,
it's got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Besides that, wonderful site!

I've been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours
today, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
It is beautiful price sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made
just right content material as you did, the web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

Hi there, hopefully someone'll check this comment as this blog entry is pretty old. I tried this recipe and the ingredients are currently chilling in the fridge. It's hardening however i noticed that the texture when i poke my finger is is not smooth at all, it actually feels a little more like a scrub, but when i apply it it immediately melts.

I blended it as per the instructions so I'm not sure why the texture is coarse and not smooth. Any ideas?
