I have a recipe for hand lotion made from products found at Dollar General, but don't know the quantity of the products to use. Does anyone know the recipe?

I use the same formula; only put the vaseline in the microwave for a bit to partially melt it. It blends with the baby lotion and vitamin e cream better that way. I love this stuff and so do all my friends and family

@ninny123 I use 1-4oz. tube of creamy vaseline, 1 oz. bottle of any baby lotion & 1-4oz. jar of vitamin E cream. Not at all greasy. The scent will be determined by the scent of the baby lotion. The scent only lingers a very short time.I don't need a mixer. I use a large bowl & a large spoon. I purchase all ingredients at either Dollar General or Dollar Tree for $1 each.

This is the original recipe I copied years ago. I have made it many many times, however I only make a half batch because it makes so much. I don't find the exact brands called for, but adapt accordingly. The last time I even poured a Tbsp of Vit E oil in that I happened to have. I mix with my mixer till it is very creamy. I then store it in the Vaseline and Vit. E jars - which by now I have quite a supply of. Before that I bought some small plastic storage containers.

My doctor approves of this very much because it has no alcohol in it to dry the skin, so it does nothing but moisturize my very dry skin.

Note: In the recipe they comment about 10 minutes of stickiness, but I really never had that problem. Admittedly, it is oilier than most lotions, but it can be rubbed in.

Miracle Hand & Body Lotion

1 Bottle of Baby Lotion, Sleepy Time, Chamomile and Lavender, $ Store Brand (16 ounces)

1 Jar of Delon Vitamin E Creme (16 ounces)

1 Jar of Petroleum Jelly, $ Store Brand (16 ounces)

Mix all together with an electric mixer and put in jars or in those plastic food storage containers. I can live with 10 minutes of stickiness after a shower for the feeling it gives me all day long.

I use cheap lotion as a base and add a jar of the dollar store vitamin e moisturizer creme and add 2 tablespoons of glycerin works better than the Vaseline.

I know this isn't homemade, but go to the body shop and buy either there passion fruit body butter or blueberry. It is amazing and I never had a better product.

I would not use crisco on your skin it is fatty and can absorb into your blood stream.Try olive oil!

You can make your own special hand cream by just getting unscented lotion and adding a few drops of your own essential oils, such as lavender, etc. to the lotion. Unscented lotions sometimes are cheaper than scented.

This homemade hand cream (or body cream, whichever you prefer) is so much better than any other hand cream you can buy. It is so easy and so inexpensive to make too. I go to Dollar General and buy everything I need to make it. Recipe follows:

  • 2-4oz. jars Vitamin E cream
  • 1-8oz. jar Vaseline
  • 1-16 oz. bottle baby lotion

Mix with electric mixer till smooth and store in jars with lids.

Note: If you think the smell of the baby lotion is too strong, you might be able to find unscented lotion.

Do not store in a metal container. Be sure to reuse the containers or use glass/plastic. (01/31/2008)

Use unscented lotion and add the essential oil of your choice. (02/01/2008)

Homemade Cheap and Easy Hand Cream

Some people object to mineral oil (even though it seems to be in every commercial skin cream), because it dissolves important vitamins and hormones, and then your body excretes them.

Instead of baby oil, which is just scented mineral oil, you can use any cooking oil: soybean, canola, corn, olive, etc. I've made hand cream with cooking oil and it turned out fine. I liked the fact that it was inexpensive, unscented and had no polysyllabic chemicals in it. (02/01/2008)

If you heat the Vaseline a little in the microwave, it mixes so much easier and doesn't have lumps of Vaseline in the lotion. (03/10/2009)
