    My husband had psoriasis on his hands. I used this basic formula and added Burgamoot and glycerin and his hands are doing very good. I also gave it to an elderly neighbor who had been going to a wound Dr. For an injury to his leg. It started to heal and he went to Mich and the cold caused it to break open again. The Dr. Advised to keep cream on it to keep it moist. He was going every 3 days back to the wound Dr. I gave him a jar and he told me the wound Dr. Could not believe the difference. The Dr. Wanted the ingredients and my "recipe". I just make a big batch and estimate the amounts to put in until the consistency looks right. I did have to order the Burgamoot online and I did not have the vitamin A cream. My friends all love it and it probably costs me about $6 per jar to make. It is a great gift for Christmas and most likely the receiver will want more. It has a nice fresh smell and several of my male friends use it also. Great stuff.

    I have made that recipe for years, but I really like how silky my hands feel and heal with the vitamin A in the recipe.

    Yes, I thought it looked greasy also, but touched white typing paper... and it leaves no residue or grease. I just can't say enough good about this recipe, the former recipe, with the vitamin E is good, but I feel this really heals, extreme dry, scratchy skin. If you use it when you go to bed, you have no need to worry about grease, it soaks in. It's a thick consistency, so it won't work in a pump. W7sue, I don't know if the recipe is cheaper than what you quote, but if you want a good product, try this.

    Thank you for the advice regarding psoriasis, I have a step daughter and a sister in law that struggle with that rash. Can you share your recipe for your lotion ? I would really appreciate that. Thanks in advance.

    I made that very same recipe for years, that Kath 12 speaks of, but I don't think I 'll ever go back to that one, after trying this recipe with the Vitamin A, just my choice now.

    If you put the baby lotion in the microwave for about 30 seconds, all will mix up nice and smooth then, no using a mixer, just stir.
