Hand Lotion Ingredient Giveaway – 2 Winners ~ Closed

How to Make Hand Lotion
Today I’m excited to bring you a great giveaway by Mountain Rose Herbs in celebration of my fourth year blogging. Two lucky readers will win all three ingredients to make their own hand lotion: olive oil, emulsifying wax and lavender essential oil. This is a great opportunity to give lotion making a try if you’ve been curious about it. Three and a half years later this is still my favorite lotion to make and use. It’s consistency is creamy smooth and it’s so incredibly easy and economical to make that there really is no need to buy lotion ever again.

Mountain Rose Herbs is a company that I’m proud to promote. If you can believe it, I first heard about them by winning a nettle themed giveaway from a blog four years ago. Scott and I have been regular customers ever since. We always relish receiving their catalogs in the mail and circle and dog ear it up with all our culinary and cosmetic desires. Not only do they carry fine products but they are based out of Eugene, Oregon where I used to go to college, so I feel a special kinship with them.
