Nourishing Home Made Lotion
Easy to make and so silky smooth for your skin!
A few years back my good friend Faye gave me this recipe and I have been making it ever since. It is not greasy, absorbs really well and terrific for dry skin. A little goes along way and I also use it for night face cream. I think you’ll really enjoy this moisturizing homemade creamy lotion; my family and I really do.
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)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a hand or stand mixer until fluffy.
Pour 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 to a friend, neighbor, a thoughtful way to send appreciation along, or to simply let someone know you are thinking of them.
