Making Hand lotion/ Body lotion

wavy_womanwavy_woman Posts: 19Registered Users
My favorite hand cream is very expensive. I would love to be able to make some myself. It has various oils in it, bees wax and honey, and jojoba butter and roesmary. I really love what the honey does for my skin. I hate in on my hair but it makes my skin glow.

Anyone know where I can find a hand cream recipe with a butter and honey and oils in it.

Thanks, Amanda

    I really liked some of the recipes they have here, the ones i tried turned out really well.
    They give you a really good starting point, then you can try adding in other mix ins.

    Those body butter recipes look delicious.
    --I'm located in Western PA.   --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.   --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.   --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    hey! its me again!
    I happened to come across this site while looking for a good after sun soother recipe (if anyone has one lets hear it!)

    they have ingredients like you were talking about-with honey etc. here is the site:
    http://www.bestincosmetics.com/homemade-cosmetics/lotions.htm

    For example: Banana and honey, or honey and orange, jasmine lotion, etc.

    hope this helps!
