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!
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.

Since I had my little baby, I have to wash hands so much more often than any other time. My hands soon became so dry and so chapped. No matter how much cream I used before my night sleep, the second day they were still horrible. Also, cream on your hands is not safe if the baby puts them in their mouth. Cream left on bottles when feeding baby is not safe either.
I apply white vinegar and glycerin blended liquid to both hands, even dry parts of body, the result is much better and quicker. Not only both hands feel better moisturized, they are safe for kids. The proportion between white vinegar and glycerin is 5:1.

A very simple homemade hand lotion recipe.
Combine the two ingredients in an 8 ounce bottle and shake well. Store in a cool, dark place.

How can I make my hand lotion batch not so greasy? I made a some using baby lotion, vitamin E, and Vaseline; it is the Dollar Tree DIY project for hand lotion.
Normally homemade hand lotion is made out of beeswax, shea butter, and sweet almond oil. Afterwards you add your essence oil to this. Your ingredients are really greasy and even if you cook this, you'll still have a lot of grease in your hand lotion.
Personally, I don't see how you can use products from the dollar tree to accomplish what you want to do.
There are so many formulas to choose from and it seems that everyone has their favorite. Dollar Tree products can be used to make DIY lotions.
Dollar stores often have quality products for a bargain price, saving you even more when you combine them to make your own lotion. This is a page about Dollar General homemade hand lotion.
