Making Hand Cream


I think a nice thick hand cream is just wonderful. I like the feel of thick cream, and when applied before bedtime it makes my hands nice. I purchased some Bath and Body Works Hand Cream at Goodwill...but it is so thin and runny. Now, what to do about it. I found this easy method to make my own cream using the thin lotion. I am making use of this recipe to fix the lotion I have, so I am not using Baby Lotion.

16 oz Lotion
8   oz Vaseline
8   oz Vitamin E cream

These things can be found at the dollar store.

Here is a link to the blog that inspired me, and the directions: www.d-and-s-macke.blogspot.com
