Basic Lotion and Crème' Making Recipe
Copyright Deborah R. Dolen
These are very important articles for those who
cannot find fragrance free lotion. These
simple instructions give you a Bath and Body Works type lotion.
Mastering lotion making is probably the most
rewarding in all of the toiletry products. One
reason it is, beyond soap, one of the most used. Making lotion has also been one
of the few areas I consistently failed at until I read a simple article one night. I did not believe it could be that easy
and was about to trash the instructions. I
just saw no complicated ingredients. Then
decided to give making lotion one more chance.
I have always like the Bath and Body works sweet almond oil based products,
but they can be $10 a tube. You can
make your own for under $2 including a nice reusable bottle. Other sources seem to sell inferior
non-oil based lotion, or worse, with mineral oil and alcohol!
