Hi all. Has anyone, ever made any of these recipes. If so, will you post the results. Thanks - Tina_2

Blue Satin Body Lotion
4 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons soap flakes
I teaspoon glycerine
1 teaspoon witch-hazel
4 teaspoons olive oil
A few drops of blue colouring and perfume

Put the soap-flakes and water in a saucepan and heat.
When the soap-flakes are dissolved, remove from the heat and add glycerine, olive oil and witch-hazel. Stir until it cools and then add the blue colouring and some perfume. Lovely, thin, creamy blue mixture thus made is an ideal, non-greasy, after-bath body lotion which leaves the skin glowing like satin.

Lavender Body Lotion
DIssolve I teaspoon borax in I cup rose water, then slowly add 2 tablespoons of warmed olive oil, beating constantly. When all the oil has been added to the water and it forms an emulsion, add lavender water. (Lavender water is made by infusing a handful of lavender flowers in 2 cups of boiling water.) Let this stand for an hour and then strain and use.

Almond Body Lotion
3 teaspoons lanolin
1 teaspoon almond oil
1 teaspoon petroleum jeUy 1 teaspoon vegetable lard 2 teaspoons glycerine
10 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon soap flakes
1 teaspoon cornflower and perfume or almond essence

Heat the oils and water separately. Remove them from heat and mix them together. Pour the mixture into a bottle and shake vigorously. Now add perfume.
