- 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.
- Into a large glass mixing bowl, pour 64 oz. of the Creamy Hand & Body Wash
- Place in microwave and heat product for about 3 minutes. The product must be warm when mixing with the fragrance.
- Since this is a water-based product, you will need to modify the fragrance oil to make it water soluble.
- For the next step, you will need a digital scale.
- Place small glass bowl on scale and tare. Pour in .64 oz of fragrance. Add 3.20 oz. of FO/EO Modifier or until scale reaches 3.84 oz. Blend well.
- Normal directions for the FO/EO modifier is mixing 4:1 with the fragrance oil. We found this fragrance to need a little extra modifying so we mixed this at a 5:1 ratio.
- Add fragrance oil mixture to the warm hand soap. Gently mix so as not to make too many bubbles.
- Add drops of liquid dye until desired color is achieved.
- Fill eight bottles with product about 3/4 full. You will need to leave room for the foamer top which fits down into the bottle.
- Let product cool completely. Place foamer top onto bottle and screw on tightly.
- Repeat above steps to make the remaining half gallon of product.
