Cin's "Homemade Hand and Body Cream"
RECIPE USUALLY YIELDS APPROXIMATELY 50 TO 60 OUNCES
- (1 lb) jar of aquabase or hydrobase (you have to order from a pharmacists)
- (4 oz) bottle of glycerin
- 1 oz
- baby oil gel (or baby oil)
- 3 oz
- aloe vera (clear gel)*
- 4 oz
- vitamin e (clear gel)
- 3 1/2 c

I use old antique AVON jars as they make nice gift jars. Just wash them out with mild soapy water, rinse well and dry completely before filling with lotion-cream.
If it ends up on the thin side, then I call it "LOTION", if thicker (as it usually is) I call it "CREAM"...depends on the base you can find to use.
I loved Unibase best BUT it has been discontinued, so we can not get it anymore. Therefore I have been using Aquabase instead for some time now.
It is a base the doctors and nurses used to mix their medication creams with.
