I will admit, I have a lotion obsession.
Inherited from my parents… passed on to friends… we are all obsessed with lotion!
At the peak of my obsession, one could find my stash of lotion bottles in my car, purse and desk at work.
I think at one point I owned the entire collection of lotion from both CVS and Walgreens! I love the different smells, textures, even the bottles!
So it should come as no surprise that making homemade lotion is one of my favorite past times.
My close friend and I started making them together, and it quickly became our ideal Friday night activity! (we obviously no longer care about being cool)
