Homemade Lotion Recipe : How To Make Homemade Body & Hand Lotions

Dry Skin Homemade Lotion Recipe

Put 1 tablespoon castor oil, 1/2 cup mineral oil, 1/2 tablespoon codliver oil, and 2 tablespoons lecithin in the blender. Now prepare a gelatih mix by dissolving 1 tablespoon gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Then add 1/4 cup boiling water to the gelatin and let it sit until cool. Add 1/2 cup of this gelatin to the blender mix. Blend until thoroughly mixed. (Keep the gelatin water you have left. You will want to make other lotions with it.) This lotion is good for thick, rough, flaking, and chapped skin.

For skin that is wrinkled, add the juice of 1 or 2 leaves of an aloe vera plant and 1 PABA tablet (1000 mg) to the blender mix. (If sensitive to PABA, omit it.) To clear the skin of freckles, add 1/4 cup of lemon juice. If desired, add scented oil to the mix.

Flax Seed Skin Homemade Lotion Recipe

Soak 4 tablespoons cracked flax seed for 24 hours in 2 cups of warm water. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Strain off the flax seed and add 6 tablespoons of glycerin and 2 cups of vinegar. Bring just to boiling point and remove from heat. Several drops of scented oil may be added at this time, if desired. Beat extremely well as the glycerin has a tendency to separate. This is a very good lotion for treating dry skin.

Hand Lotion Recipe

I use this all over the body. Melt 1 cup solid vegetable shortening, 2 tablespoons anhydrous lanolin, and 1/4 ounce of beeswax. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of olive or almond oil and 1/8 ounce of scented on. Mix well and let cool. When the mixture has cooled and is solid, stir it well. If too stiff, add more oil. If too soft, add more melted beeswax. One way to test the texture is to place one tablespoon of the lotion in the refrigerator. After the mixture has cooled completely, check for thickness. Put in attractive jar and use daily.

Caution: Please test for allergic reactions to the lanolin. If you have allergic reactions to wearing wool, chances are you will have a reaction to the. use of lanolin. If you are sensitive to the lanolin, leave that out of the recipe and substitute almond oil for the olive oil.

Rose Water Skin Lotion

Mix 1/3 cup of rose water, 1/3 cup glycerin, 1/3 cup lemon juice and shake well. Use after your bath. This will help to heal sun­damaged skin. This is a good lotion if you do a lot of outdoor chores.

Violet Lotion Recipe

This lotion has lots of vitamin A, so you know how good it is for the skin. There is no better oil for our skins than almond oil. It, smoothes, softens, and feeds the skin, and it's great for under the eyes. Place 1/2 cup of fresh violet leaves and 1/2 cup violet flowers in a stainless steel pan. Cover the herbs with almond oil. Place the pan on very, very low neat and leave to steep for about 6 hours, covered. Strain off the flowers /leaves and add 1 ounce of melted beeswax to the almond oil. Stir until mixture is creamy. Test for firmness. If too stiff, add a little more almond oil. Pour into pretty jars and use daily.
