Making Your Own Hand Lotion

  • 1 cup glycerin
  • 1 cup rosewater


  • 10 drops (or about 1/8 teaspoon) essential oil fragrance, such as lavender
  • 1/4 teaspoon (or more) vitamin E oil

Put all ingredients into glass or plastic bottles. Portion out the ingredients according to the ounce capacity of the bottles you are using. Shake well until all ingredients are completely combined.

If using scent, shake well several times a day for two to three days before giving or using. If using a fragrance, pick one that smells good combined with roses because of the rosewater.

Don't use metal containers or utensils; they taint the lotion and change the acidity.

Glycerin, rosewater, and vitamin E oil are available at most drugstores. Essential oil fragrance are available at specialty fragrance, bath or herb shops. One tiny bottle costs a few dollars and will scent many quarts of lotion.
