TOTAL TIME: 4 hr 10 min
Prep: 10 min
Inactive Prep: 4 hr
2 mature fresh aloe vera leaves
4 fresh marigold flower heads (Calendula officinalis)
16 drops lavender essential oil (1 drop per ice cube)
Peel the fresh aloe leaves to give you a gooey mass of gel. Put into a blender with the marigold flowers and whizz until smooth.
Pour the gel into ice-cube trays, adding a drop of lavender essential oil into each individual cube. Freeze until solid.
Apply a cube directly to the affected area as needed. The ice cubes melt quickly to produce masses of fragrant soothing gel.
Don't forget to have a paper towel or cloth handy to mop up the melted gel; the goo has a habit of going everywhere!
The gel cubes will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months.
