    This is from Pinterest and Barb's daughter made some. It's good stuff:

    16 oz. baby lotion
    8 oz. petroleum jelly
    8 oz. vitamin E cream

    You can mix it up with your mixer and put it into containers. It's better to have an extra container or two because it makes a lot. This is really great for dry skin weather, even down here where we have more humidity.

    4 oz mill creek Vit E, 20,000 units Vit E
    Open 2 softgels of grape seed extract and
    squirt them into Vit E and a great moisturizer
    antioxidant cream.

    Petroleum jelly is pretty heavy and clogging, I
    would think...

    The one I make I use on my face and neck only....

    The one you posted looks good for a whole body....thanks

    I thought the same thing about the PJ because using too much on the skin can clog lymph nodes. I wondered whether one could substitute some other kind of oil, like olive oil, in a lesser amt. This cream is thick and rich and since it has twice as much baby lotion and another 8 oz. of vitamin E cream, perhaps the amt. of PJ would not be too much. I know that unless I have something with oil in it, my skin just stays dry and wrinkly looking, even down here in the jungle.
