This is the best lotion I have ever used!!! I usually have very dry skin, rough elbows, chapped, cracked heels & dry, brittle fingernails. Since I have been using this at least once a day my skin has been so soft, my fingernails are growing and my heels aren't a bit chapped or cracked. My daughter-in-law Lisa & I experimented with the lotion recipe that is on Pinterest and this was the best combination we came up with that had the best consistency and felt the best on our skin. I suggest everyone to at least give it a try.

Lotion Recipe
1 - 27 oz. Bottle Johnson's Shea & Cocoa Butter Baby Lotion
1 - 13 oz. Jar Petroleum Jelly
3 - 4oz Jars Fruit of the Earth Vitamin E Cream
Blend until well mixed & smooth with hand mixer.
