Give your hardworking hands a special treat by making a batch of homemade goat's milk hand lotion. Thick, creamy goat's milk is rich in nourishing protein and vitamins A and D, which promote strong, supple skin. In addition, the lactic acid in goat's milk acts as a gentle exfoliant, restoring and rejuvenating tired skin by removing dead, dry skin cells. Goat's milk lotion is especially beneficial for sensitive skin and dry, chapped hands.

Pour 1 cup of canned, condensed goat's milk or raw goat's milk slowly into the oil mixture as you blend it with a stick blender. Alternatively, place the oils in a blender. Turn the blender on the lowest speed and slowly pour in the warm goat's milk. Blend until the lotion is thick and creamy.
