The Importance of a Preservative Part 2

Yesterday, I showed you a picture of a lotion that did not use a preservative. That was really gross. Today, I would like to show you this same recipe with using a preservative. This is a really enjoyable recipe that I hope you try. I will be sending these to shipping but don’t worry, I will only send the ones that contain the preservative. Safety first!
