It makes your skin really smooth.


  • 1/2 cup petroleum Jelly
  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 1/2 tsp. almond oil

I don't like the idea of using a petroleum product on my skin. I'll stick with plant based oils such as coconut oil, which is a great hand lotion.

Thanks so much for this recipe. I have heard that Crisco is excellent for skin. I can't wait to try it.

I don't like petroleum on my skin, either. Remember, anything you put on your skin, gets absorbed into your body. Crisco is also hydrogenated, which does damage to cell structure. Stick to vegetable oils that don't rot easily.

One small container of dollar store retinol face cream or night time moisturizer whip it up in a bowl with a wire whisk and put in jars you can add fragrance and soap safe dye for color easy to make just as nice as store bought expensive creams.
