I make this hand cream a lot, and give to friends who love it. My recipe calls for 2 jars of Vit. E cream and only 3/4 of the vaseline and 1 bottle of baby lotion. Buy everything at Dollar General. Mix in a bowl with your mixer, put in tightly sealed jars. VIOLA ! It also does WONDERS for your nails, and dry feet. Love this stuff.
