2. Cucumber Aloe Body Mist

Cucumber Aloe Body Mist

The pronounceable ingredients list of this body mist is so great – certainly not what you would find at a store! The cucumber, aloe, and lemon combination is so refreshing and uplifting that it feel like your mood is boosted for the entire day. Also, because perfume will make some contact with your skin, the rosewater can actually soften your skin and the aloe can help soothe it as well. The only downside to this recipe is that it has to be stored in the refrigerator, and that it lasts only a week. Plan accordingly by only making a half recipe if you need to.


1 cucumber

1 squeeze of lemon

1 teaspoon aloe vera gel

1 tablespoon rosewater (you can buy at a health food store)


Peel your cucumber and cut it up into little pieces. Place the pieces in a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute.

Cover a small bowl with a cheese cloth and strain the juice into the bowl. I didn’t have a cheese cloth, so I used a napkin and squeezed the juice through using a tight grip.

Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix. I actually put everything back in the blender just to make sure the aloe was thoroughly mixed. Transfer your mixture into a spray bottle and mist away! You can add some distilled water if you want to dilute the mixture a bit. Store this in your fridge so that it doesn’t spoil. It should last about a week.
