Picture of How to Make Fragrant Hand Lotion for Valentine's Day
I love a good hand lotion and if it really smells good, even better. My husband has really dry skin in the winter and I wanted to find something that would serve his needs.  I came across this recipe on the net, and made it and found it good.  I hope you enjoy it also. So here we go!

Step 1:

Picture of
16 oz. Baby lotion (+/- $4 depending on brand and type)
8 oz. petroleum jelly (+/- $3 depending on brand and type)
8 oz. Vitamin E Cream (the cheapest was $4.00 for two 4oz. jars at Walmart, other wise $5 for 2 oz.)
Fragrance oil ($4 for 0.5 oz. at Local Craft Store, buy the kind made for lotions etc.)
Rubber scrapper
Empty jars (use the ones you emptied, more of the same type can be gotten at Health Food Stores)
Labels (made on your computer using a desk top program)

You may use any fragrance you desire. I am allergic to a lot of fragrances and so is my Hubby. The Victoria Secrets "Love Spell" is one I can use and my Hubby likes. Thanks for comment.
What's wrong with using a small amount of 100% essential oils? I use it for everything, my soaps, creams, and shampoos.
Good idea! Thank you!

Gave some to my Mom and she loves it. Now I have to keep her in supply.

I have been making this creme for a long time. It's awesome! I've never used anything as effective as this creme is for dry skin on my heels. I use it every day, and my feet feel like baby's feet, with a little bit of occasional maintenance every other month, or so.
I have never added fragrance to mine, as it already smells so good from the baby lotion and Vitamin E creme ... but I will try doing that in my next batch (due very soon!). Do you just buy the fragrance oils that they sell at WM (like, in the candle and scented oils section), or where do you buy them?

Also .. the vitamin E creme is available at Dollar General for very little cost.

We don't have the Dollar General around here. MY hubby is loving this lotion for his work worn hands. It really does work. I bought the fragrance a Hobby Lobby in thier lotion, candle making section. Thanks for looking.
