Don’t you wish I could get my act together and put everything in one blog post? Never going to happen! 🙁
If you have Dollar General stores around you, that’s where we got the Vitamin E Cream. Other places have it, but that’s where the lady who gave me the recipe said she got hers and that’s where we got ours.
If you’re lucky, and if you love lavender like I do, you can find lavender baby lotion at Wal-Mart or Walgreens — some of the larger type stores. It’s actually called “bedtime lotion” . That’s enough to give the lotion a good lavender smell. When I’m home and making a batch for just me, I’ll probably add a drop of lavender E.O., but if you use the regular pink baby lotion, it will smell a bit like a baby. In fact, when we came home with the container the lady had given me, my niece’s 6 year old smelled it, looked at her 2 year old brother and said “Hey, he used to wear this!”
There’s an unscented baby lotion, one with aloe and Vitamin E, a cucumber/melon, one with shea and cocoa butters . . and more!
And, if you’re looking for cute containers, be careful of the size of the hole at the top. Some of the ones I got have a hole too small and if I use the smallest of funnels, the hole in the funnel is too small to get the lotion through. I’m going to save all my empty pump and squeeze containers from soaps and creams I have at home and they’ll be great for my use as well as for giving away.
Now . . I’m off to a quilt show all day! 🙂
