Very nice lotion...

I was in need of lotion and had seen some recipes online so I thought I would give it a shot.

So, I made "fortified" lotion. Here is the beginning...petroleum jelly & lotion...

More lotion...
Mixed with Vitamin E, Vegetable Glycerin and Orange Essential Oil added plus some food coloring.
After whipping everything together.
The finished product. It is really nice. I used it and my hands are very soft and it is lotion that has lasted through washing my hands multiple times.
The recipe:
2-15 oz bottles of lotion
9-10 oz of petroleum jelly
2 oz of vitamin E oil (could substitute vitamin E lotion)
4-5 oz vegetable glycerin
10-15 drops essential oil (I used orange essential oil)
food coloring to match essential oil
Mix together with electric mixer until blended. Put in smaller containers.
