Recipe Directions

NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  1. Add the essential oils and Aloe Vera Gel into a Pyrex measuring cup and stir together.
  2. Place bottles into the clean measuring cup to hold them upright, and place on scale and tare to zero.
  3. Pour the contents of the measuring cup into a clean plastic bag or pastry bag. Squeeze all of the excess air out and snip the corner of the bag. Fill each bottle to 1.95 oz. Any remaining product can be divided equally.
  4. Place caps on bottles and label product accordingly.
