I really intended to save this post until the holiday season because this lotion would make a great and easy gift.
But, it is too good of a formula not to share with you now.
This past Christmas a coworker handed out small tubs of this stuff. I used it all up immediately and had to ask her what it was because it was stupendous!
Here is her recipe:
DIY Body Lotion
2 “tubs” vitamin E cream (4 oz. each)
1 “tub” Vaseline (13 oz.)
1 “bottle” lavender baby lotion (15 oz.)
Whip together in your stand mixer until creamy.
I had the hardest time finding vitamin E cream and finally had to order it from Swanson’s. (It was cheaper, too.) I used a store brand for the petroleum jelly and and the baby lotion.
I used the empty jars to repackage the finished product.
Really, this stuff is golden. I have the driest skin, especially in the winter.
I started using this lotion everyday and my alligator skin has disappeared. (Grumpiness, maybe not so much.)
If you try this, please let me know what you think.
