  1. now this is EXACTLY what I wanted. It only took me 4 hours to find. (I feel sooooo stupid) Thank you kindly, J

  2. Just made a batch of hand lotion. Nice. Thanks for the recipe. I had all the ingredients and saved little jars for years just cuz they are cute. I put them to use.

  3. I made this, but once it cooled to room temp, and has been sitting for a couple days, it’s way too hard for me to get anything out of the jar. What can I add to make it softer?

    1. Holly – I like mine a little thicker but if it’s too thick, I would heat it up and add more almond oil or add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to soften it up some. Thank you!

    1. Yes, it does melt to become more of a liquid – It takes some time but I would keep heating and stirring it until it melts completely. Thank you!

  4. I’ve been looking for a simple DIY hand lotion recipe to try and yours sure seems to fit the bill. One thing that got my attention after researching DIY lotions is shelf life. I know the easy answer is simply not make too much, but one of my underlying concerns on that topic is the likelihood of unknowingly creating a petri dish of unmentionable little nasties. DIY lotions containing water seems to be especially susceptible to eventual germ growth which is why yours stands out as potentially much better.
    Your (or other’s) thoughts on keeping DIY lotions safe for fam and friends?
    Thanks much,
    Deb

    1. Hi Ella – This will last to the soonest expiration date of the products you used to make the hand cream as long as it’s stored in a cool dry place. Thank you!
