I don’t adhere strictly to measurements because especially with this formula, you can experiment according to the texture and consistency you prefer. However, you do need two basic ingredients exactly as I describe and picture here to get the buttery texture you need for very dry skin on hands and feet.
Start with the first essential ingredient, which is approximately a ½ cup to 1 cup of Johnson’s Baby Bedtime Lotion (pictured below) and put into a large mixing bowl. This comes in a lavender colored bottle, and it is important that you purchase this particular kind of Johnson's Baby lotion. For a more liquid texture, use more baby lotion; for a thicker, creamier texture, use less.
You can find all of these oils on Amazon or at your local health food store.
Put your hand mixer on low and blend until you see it start to look like softened butter. Then slowly put it up to high for a minute or two. That’s it! You’re done! The resulting scent is one of faint chocolate (to me, anyway). I love the very delicate aroma as it relaxes me.
Pour the mixture in the jar of your choice and you will have a smooth, natural smelling cream for dry feet, hands, or any other body part that could use soothing. I can even put this on my face near my eyes without any stinging, and I usually have great sensitivity to over-the-counter creams when I use them near my eyes.
Give as gifts to family and friends. They'll think you're Martha Stewart and it will take you just a few minutes of prep time to make! Enjoy!
That's my piece for today.
