Homemade Hand Lotion

I have terribly dry skin in the winter.  I absolutely have to put on lotion plus gloves at night to keep them from cracking and bleeding.  This stuff does leave a bit of a greasy residue on your hands so it is best to use it at night.  If you use more of the creams than the oils you probably will have a less greasy feeling mixture. Either way I highly recommend it.  It's healing power is amazing.

Quilters Handcream
Do not use Neosporin for this- use Polysporin.

12 ounces aloe cream or gel
12 ounces Vitamin cream
.05 ounce tube of polysporin
2 tablespoons of petroleum jelly
4 tablespoon baby oil, cream or gel

Mix together with a whisk.  It will whip up nice and creamy.  In order to get into the pump bottle, I put it in a plastic bag and snipped of the corner of the bag.  This made it so much easier to get it into the pump bottle.

I always look for herbal and home made cosmetics because those are free of chemicals and side effects of those chemicals. This recipe is really nice and i wil try to make my own hand lotion now instead of buying one from the market.
