Love this lotion! I have made it with creamy petroleum jelly and it changes the consistancy a little bit but it is still a great lotion. Gave as Christmas presents 2011 and people still talking about it Christmas 2012. Great stuff!!!

My mom got this recipe a few years ago from a friend (Tish) who is a retired physical therapist. Health care workers wash their hands many times a day and their skin gets so dry. This lotion is fabulous; not too greasy and smells wonderful! Mom can go through at least a quart of it a year. She's almost out, so guess what she's getting for Mother's Day?! BTW, we call it "Tish Creme".

I put this together about a year ago and have been using it on my face and hands. Wonderful. Making more today.

I made a 1/2 batch of this and had to use Vitamin e oil because I couldn't find the lotion and maybe that's the reason this is a little greasy. I don't like it on my hands but it's great for feet and legs! Love it!

Very good lotion, but the petroleum jelly didn't mix up well. Also, no amount given for the jelly. I put in small jars and gave as gifts, everyone loves it.

Amazing!! I made this for my grandma before her first chemo treatment and couldn't be happier! It made a lot more than I'd planned on and isn't like most lotions that just dry up instantly so we'll have some around for quite awhile. Thanks a ton!!

Love it! So nice and creamy and fluffy. I've been using it for 4 days now. It's great to slather over dry arms and legs after stepping out of the shower. It really keeps my skin soft. This will make lovely gifts.

Wonder lotion! I originally planned to make this recipe for my DH who has dry/cracked hands. I have had a huge patch of very thick calloused (sp) skin on one of my elbows. I had been using Lubriderm-which didn't even touch it. I have been trying to apply this 2x a day-a.m. and before I go to bed. After the second day the area was actually getting sore-no I don't mean that being negative, the area that was under layers of thick skin was Finally getting air. This lotion penetrates! I am on my 5th day using this and the area that covered my whole elbow has been drastically shrunk, I only have a tiny area and I'm sure if I posted this on my 7th day the area will be gone. I halved this recipe. I used 2 1/4 oz. liquid vitamin E, 9 oz. baby lotion and 4 oz vaseline. Using liquid Vitamin E does pull away from the lotion and vaseline so I just shake the container.
