Homemade Dry Skin Body Butter
Makes 4 1/2 Eight ounce containers
In a large mixing bowl I combined the following, using my hand mixer I blended it well and filled my clean containers. I was a bit concerned the cream would stick to the bowl etc, but clean up was very easy.
- 8 ounces of petroleum jelly with no fragrance
- 8 ounces of Vitamin E Cream (a 2 jar pack-4 oz each can be found at WalMart-around $4)
- 21-28 ounce bottle of body lotion of your choice. I used a formula with oatmeal for sensitive skin
After you have combined your ingredients you can fill the airtight container(s) and you have a fabulous, thoughtful gift for friends and loved ones. Most of us typically think of the women in our lives when we think of gifts like this, however if you use a fragrance-free lotion, this would also be great for guys and gals who garden, or whose hands get very dry.
