Homemade Skin Smoothing Body Cream

A semi – homemade skin smoothing body cream. A hydrating and smoothing mixture of petroleum jelly, Vitamin E cream, silkening lotion with baby oil, and Macadamia Oil.

I keep this huge mason jar on my bathroom counter. It’s perfect for applying all over the body, right after a shower. A little bit goes a long way.

Homemade Skin Smoothing Body Cream

I’m calling it a cream, because it’s a little more oily than standard lotion. The Macadamia Oil is awesome stuff! It has a nutty and earthy scent. When it’s mixed with the other products in this recipe, the scent isn’t very strong. This recipe for homemade skin smoothing body cream works GREAT! It really keeps our skin smooth and hydrated. 

Here’s what I used:

  1. 1 (7.5 oz.) container petroleum jelly (purchased at a local grocery store) 
  2. 1 (4 oz.) container vitamin E cream  (purchased at a local grocery store) 
  3. 1 (18 oz.) silkening with baby oil lotion (purchased at a local grocery store) 
  4. 1/4 cup macadamia nut oil – (bought on Amazon)

I used a rubber spatula to scrape the petroleum jelly into a bowl, and microwave for 20 seconds. Add in the Vitamin E cream, silkening lotion, and macadamia nut oil. Whisk everything together until thoroughly combined. The mixture may appear gritty or grainy, but it feels smooth to the touch. It will rub on the skin very smoothly. Remember, start with a small amount and rub that onto your body.

Here’s how I made the lid: I used the dispenser from the silkening lotion bottle, and the lid from the vitamin E cream container. With very sharp kitchen shears, I made a hole in the center of the vitamin E cream lid. I spun the kitchen shears in a circle repeatedly, until I had a big enough hole. I trimmed the end of the dispenser (the part that goes into the lotion) until it was the right length, and would fit in the mason jar. It works perfectly to dispense the homemade cream!


Homemade Skin Smoothing Body Cream

  • 1 (7.5 oz.) container petroleum jelly (purchased at a local grocery store) 
  • 1 (4 oz.) container vitamin E cream  (purchased at a local grocery store) 
  • 1 (18 oz.) silkening with baby oil lotion (purchased at a local grocery store) 
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nut oil – (bought on Amazon)

Step One: In a large mixing bowl, empty out the petroleum jelly, and heat in the microwave for 20 seconds(This helps loosen the petroleum jelly and make it easier to mix). Scrape in the vitamin E cream, pour in the silkening with baby oil lotion, and the macadamia nut oil. Whisk all the ingredients together, until completely combined. Pour the homemade skin smoothing body cream into desired containers. 

Note: The homemade cream may look grainy or clumpy, but it will apply smoothly on your body.

I used a regular mouth quart mason jar.

      Thank you Kathy! It really is smoothing for your skin. It also helped with my poison ivy rash.
