My sister and I attempted home made lotion last spring. It was a few steps above "dismal failure"; unless you're a fan of an overpowering, expired flowery perfume scent.
The next batch my sister made was a little runny, and scent-less, in comparison anyway. I solved the runny problem with my pure genius...er..laziness. After changing Luke's diaper I would put lotion on his legs, and never put the lid back on. It dried out to a nice buttery thickness. And then I ran out.
But, I found these.
Have you ever used lotion bars?
