One of my favorite homemade thick body creams to make when my skin is really dry and itchy is my homemade lemon lavender body cream.
This homemade body cream is super moisturizing and hydrating and is sure to heal up any kind of dry itchy skin fast, and best of all, it is very simple to make.

- 6 drops of lavender oil.

How To Make Homemade Lemon Lavender Body Cream
Now, the way you make my homemade lemon lavender body cream is by dumping the 1 cup of Vaseline, 1 cup of vitamin E cream, ½ a cup of soften shea butter, ½ a cup of soften cocoa butter 5 drops of lemon oil, and 6 drops of lavender oil into your medium mixing bowl.
Then, you will take the wire whisk and combined all the ingredients together to form a thick moisturizing lemon lavender scented body cream that will be slightly greasy in texture.
After, you will simply scoop the body cream into your plastic container and cover it with a lid until you are ready to use it.
The best time to use the homemade lemon lavender body cream is right after a bath just before bedtime, because like I said, it is a little bit greasy and it does take a few minutes to absorb into the skin.
The best way to apply it is to take a handful of the body cream and massage it directly into your skin and body from head to toe until it begins absorbing into the skin.
The homemade body cream is even excellent to use on dry hands and feet, but I wouldn’t recommend you to use it on your face because it might make your face slightly oily which then would cause a breakout of acne.
I wish all of you who make my homemade lemon lavender body cream a very easy time making it, and I hope those of you who use it love the way it moisturizes and softens your dry itchy skin.
I know my homemade lemon lavender body cream worked well for my dry itchy skin, and I definitely know I would recommend anyone to make this homemade body cream and to try it before buying a store brand body cream that could dry out the skin even more.
I wish you all the best of luck with moisturizing and softening your skin so it can be beautiful and soft again.
