Martha's Lotion

Grandma2Martha emailed in asking for help formulating a lotion for her skin. She has spent her break spending time with her grandchildren and loving every minute of it! She wrote saying “The last several days have been a blizzard of joy. We have made gingerbread houses and demolished them, we have played every card/board game in the house and we have flattened the snow by our boots and sleds. I have loved this but my cheeks are wind burned, dry and flaking. Help!” Let’s go make a lotion that is just perfect for Martha and her grandkids!

Weigh everything except the Liquid Germall Plus into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until everything is liquid. Using an immersion blender, mix until emulsified. Allow to cool. Mix every so often during cooling to make sure it doesn’t separate. We will want the mixture to be cooler than 120ºF before we add our preservative. Mix well. Put the lotion into bottles or jars. Enjoy!
