Sometimes those taking my classes bring me gifts. Gifts are never expected but are always appreciated .. especially the ones that have special meaning . . like things people who read the blog know I collect. Homemade gifts are always special too.
Last week a lady gave me a little Glad container of homemade hand cream. This may be TMI but my feet crack . . badly! It’s probably because I hate wearing shoes and am almost always barefooted. I even have a prescription cream for my feet because they crack and bleed and it hurts! I’ve been putting this lotion on my hands, my feet, even my face instead of my usual night cream and I’m telling you . . it’s the best stuff I’ve ever used! My feet feel better than they’ve felt in years. That one little tub of hand cream has been passed around and mom and dad have fallen in love with it too.
The lady gave me the recipe for it and mom and I made a batch last night. Here’s the recipe so you can make some too:
Homemade Hand Cream:
16 oz. baby lotion
8 oz. Vaseline
8 oz. Vitamin E Cream
Mix with electric mixer til it resembles icing.
Put in containers.
So easy to make, inexpensive and wonderful!
