Homemade Lotion

Here is a recipe for a body cream that will not only keep your skin moisturized , it will save you  money. 

The following items are what you will need to make your own luxurious body cream:

I purchased the Vitamin E cream at Dollar General.  It’s mild scent is perfect for combining with other fragrances without ill effects and is very reasonably priced at my Dollar General.  Combine the 16 ounces of Vitamin E with a 13 ounce container of Petroleum Jelly and 27 ounces of your favorite smelling baby lotion.  Be sure to use a glass bowl and metal spoons to eliminate any lingering lotion smells/taste.  The empty glass jar is where I will store the lotion once it is completely mixed.

(I now have a rubber spatula dedicated to this project, because it is so marvelous!) 

Once all of the ingredients are combined in a glass bowl use an electric hand mixer to whip them together.  Mix until the consistency is like thick frosting.

Are you feeling pampered yet?  😉 

Once these items are mixed together, scoop your homemade lotion into the glass container of your choice. 

I would recommend a glass jar with a large mouth to make using the lotion easier.  These ingredients filled 1.5 jars. 

For best results apply this luxurious lotion after a bath or shower to wet skin.  Towel dry and enjoy the softness! This stuff is the best!
