No, this is not pink icing! It is homemade hand and body lotion.
Among younger moms, there is a trend toward homemade household and beauty products. I love this interest in making products that are healthier as well as less expensive.
My daughter has made her own hand and body lotion from a website she found online. It is outstanding. And, you only have to use a tiny bit to make your hands feel soft.
8 ounces of baby lotion
8 ounces of Vitamin E Cream (not oil – not ointment )
8 ounces of Vaseline.
I actually made a smaller batch. I bought a 4 ounce jar of Vitamin E Cream. I emptied that into a mixing bowl and then used the container to measure out equal amounts of baby lotion and Vaseline.
Use a hand mixer to whip it all together. Make sure all the chunks of Vaseline are well mixed in. Find some great containers for your homemade hand lotion.
I actually took some to a small group of ladies today and we were all massaging it into our hands and enjoying a very subtle baby lotion fragrance.
I found the instructions for this on Judy Laquidira’s website, Patchwork Times. Check it out! www.patchworktimes.com
Thanks to all you young moms who are posting such great recipes on the internet.
