Homemade Treatment For Dry Skin

If you don't want to take advantage of the B&B Works offer, here is a truly frugal and fantastic "recipe" for a dry skin treatment that works even on the driest of skin. The best part is that all of the ingredients can be found at your local "dollar store". It makes a big batch, so for very little money, you can keep a bottle in every room of your house!
Dry Skin Treatment:
2 (9 ounce) bottles of baby lotion
2 (8 ounce) jars of vitamin E lotion
4 oz. vaseline petroleum jelly
Pour everything into a large bowl and mix with electric mixer until smooth. Pour into lotion pump bottles. (You may want to put the vaseline in the microwave for a few seconds before mixing if it is too stiff)
You could add essential oils to alter the smell if you choose (only recommended if you're using unscented baby lotion, otherwise the smells will clash).
Caution: Not to be used by anyone that has allergies to any petroleum-based products, so make sure if giving as a gift, you know any allergies of the recipient, or you fully note the ingredients)
This stuff works wonders and saves you a ton of money to boot! Give it a know you want to!
