Home Made Lotion




A few years back my good friend Faye gave me this recipe and I have been making it ever since.  It is not greasy, terrific for dry skin, goes along way and I also use it for night face cream.  Make some up and give a bit of it away with the recipe, like my thoughtful friend did.

  Hand and Body Lotion


28-32 oz. bottle of baby lotion (your preferred scent)

2     4 oz. (total of 7-8 oz.) bottles of “Fruit of the Earth Skin Care Cream” (Vitamin E)

7-8 oz. jar / tube of A & D Ointment with Aloe and Vitamin E (not regular petroleum jelly) *It may come as 7-8 oz. in one jar or tube or more containers maybe needed to equal the amount.



Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a hand or stand mixer until fluffy.Home Made Lotion 2Pour into desired jars, or even back into the jars and bottles used to make the recipe.  Disposable containers, 1/2 pint mason jars and small bottles with wide opening all work wonderfully well to give some to a friend, neighbor (if unscented baby lotion is used it is great for men) or someone you want to thank , or to simply let them know you are thinking of them.
