Thank you for finding and sharing this! I love making things myself because I know exactly what's going into it, and I also love that I can use essential oils in this!!

I feel like I am constantly putting lotion on my hands. Maybe there's something in the store bought lotions that actually make my hands drier so I'm then forced to keep applying lotion?? I definitely want to try my hand (hah, get it?) at making my own lotion!

My skin is sensitive and I hate that most moisturizers use parabens and other harmful ingredients, so homemade is definitely something I've been leaning towards! Essential oils are my fav, definitely trying this!

I use so much lotion in the winter season; I am so excited for this budget-friendly option. Can't wait to try out different scents---I think peppermint is a good place to start!
