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!
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.)
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)
Gather the ingredients for the lotion. Put the Baby lotion (if you don’t want it to smell like baby lotion, use the scent free and color less kind, since I didn’t think of this when I bought my lotion, I ended up with pink. If you want Lavender fragrance, by that fragrance baby lotion.), petroleum jelly and Vitamin E cream (not oil, the oil makes it really oily) into the mixing bowl. I had trouble getting the baby lotion out of its container. I but the bottle into a sink of hot water (since I was washing out the other jars so that I could use them for the new lotion) and this helped make it thinner and easier to get out of the bottle.
Turn on the mixer and beat it for 5 minutes, scraping down the sides to make sure that everything is well mixed.
