Hand Lotion

Posted by Donna:


I'm breaking the rules today. I decided to post a recipe for homemade hand lotion. Since Christmas is quickly approaching, I may also, periodically, post a homemade gift idea. The hand lotion recipe was given to me by a very dear friend at church. I've made this several times and given it as a gift. The first three items can be purchased at the Dollar Store.


1 bottle baby lotion

1 jar Vitamin E Skin Cream

1 jar Vaseline (only use half of it)



1 bottle Aloe Vera 100% Gel---This is a clear gel. (This has to be purchased at Wal-Mart) Use 1/4 to 1/3 of the bottle.


Whip the four ingredients together. I put my lotion in small, round plastic containers I bought at Wal-Mart--found in the travel container bins. These containers work great to give as gifts. One of my co-workers loved to put the lotion on her hands; then, put on plastic gloves to moisturize her hands.


I'll share another homemade lotion with you later that's great for your complexion and good for dry hands.

Have you ever added essential oils for scent? I am curious how that would affect the texture. Thanks!

I haven't added essential oils; so, I'm not sure about the texture. I did fail to post that when using the lotion, it only takes a small amount.
