You can buy rose water at pharmacies or health food stores and sometimes Wal-Mart and Target carry it. Glycerin is available at pharmacies and health food stores but craft stores such as Michael's carry it too. You can also add a few drops of your favorite floral essential oil scent if you would like to.



Place ingredients in a glass or plastic bowl and stir really well. Using a funnel; pour lotion into your choice size of glass or plastic bottles.

Just add bubble bath, candles and some Yani. Oh no... I can feel my estrogen level rising.

I have wanted some lotion that had my favorite essential oil in it (pikaki) but didn't want to pay for the overpriced lotion in the scents/bath/etc. stores.

I have very dry skin and have bought so many different brands of lotion (some pretty pricey.) This seems to work better than any of them. Enjoy!


(All these ingredients are Dollar General brand)

  • 1 petroleum jelly
  • 1 aloe vera lotion (green bottle)
  • 2 pink baby lotions
  • 2 vitamin E creams


Mix with mixer

You can repack in the jars you emptied or buy new ones if you can find them.

I would like to make the dollar general hand lotion and was wondering if you found out the size bottles of the ingredients. Thanks for your help.

For a small gift I put the cream in the small (squatty) pimento jars with a ribbon ties around the lid. I use them mainly for little tokens of appreciation for the nurses in my doctor's office. They all tell me they love it because they are washing their hands many, many times a day. Also give to my hairdresser.

I apply white vinegar and glycerin blended liquid to both hands, even dry part of body, the result is much better and quicker. Not only both hands feel better moisturized, they are safe for kids.
