This Nourishing Homemade Lotion is very 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.
I think you’ll really enjoy this moisturizing homemade creamy lotion; my family and I sure do for dry patches and all kinds of skin issues.
There is a great download of this recipe for you in the PRINTABLE LIBRARY.
Nourishing Homemade Hand and Body Lotion
26-30 oz. bottle of your favorite lotion This would work well– just make sure to order 2 bottles to make enough ounces (your preferred scent, I really like unscented)
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) THIS would work great, purchase enough ounces
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.
