2. Ratios for Base Mixture

You will first add 3 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel and  1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin. If the oil is not liquid, simply heat for a few moments under warm water and then stir the mixture well. Now add 1/4 cup each of Witch Hazel, grain alcohol and distilled water and mix in a non-metallic bowl until well incorporated. If you plan on using a pump instead of spray, aloe serves as a thickening agent so you may add more. You now have the product base.
