I can't take credit for this recipe - other than it being on my blog and I have made it - it came from my Aunt Marr Lynn. She gave some of this to my mom as a gift a couple of years ago, and it has become a family favorite and a great little easy homemade gift!
You can find all the ingredients at Dollar General.
2 4oz containers of Vitamin E Skin Care Cream (or facial cream) - this conveniently comes in a 2pk at DG
1 7.5oz jar of Vasoline (Petroleum Jelly)
1 6.5oz bottle of Baby Oil Gel - or Aloe Vera with Baby Oil - unscented
1 11oz bottle of Baby Lotion (unscented, or any scent you prefer)
*You can use the name brands or you can get all generic. DG carries both.
Mix Vitamin E cream, petroleum jelly, and lotion until well combined. Add baby oil gel and mix until well combined. Put in a sealed container of your choice.
What I like to do (because it's my blog):
I like to put this in small mason jars because I think they're cute. One batch of this fills 3 jars perfectly. I like to use the regular pink baby lotion because I like the baby smell. The coco butter baby lotion comes in at a close second for me. You can also use unscented and add the scent of your favorite perfume or just leave it plain.
**This is body butter, so it's going to have a little more grease to it than your typical body lotion - it may not be the thing you wanna throw on in the car and then safely grip the steering wheel. It is perfect for everything else - especially dry hands or feet. Rub this miracle cream on your heals and sleep in some socks and you'll be amazed.
I apologize for the Iphone pictures. My point-and-shoot camera I've had for 10 years died today, which is actually a good thing because I am going to buy a decent camera now. But, because we don't have a money tree in the back yard, you might be stuck with Iphone pictures for a few posts.
