The best smoothing body oil is so inexpensive!

Try safflower oil. It softens and moisturizes the body like the most expensive creams. Believe me, I have tried a few expensive ones! The results are just like the high-cost lotions, but safflower oil can be purchased at the grocery store for about $5 a bottle, and there are no scents to compete with your favorite perfume or cause allergic reactions.

It doesn't get any better!

Make own lotion
by: Connie

I use the cheap off brand (like Wallgreen or Walmart) and add to it. Some olive oil, tea tree oil, glycerin and some Vit E oil. (all easily found at Wallgreen..its a little expense to start doing this, but each bottle of oil will last a long long time. I actually first started this by just adding Glycerin then gradually bought the different ones as I went along) It only take a little of each to make a huge difference in the quality of the lotion. Tea tree oil has a "kerosene" smell, but it quickly dissipates. You can also leave out the tea tree oil and add a oil based scent of your choice.
