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. Place 48 oz. of water into a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Place 5.0 oz. Hemp Seed Oil into a glass measuring cup. Add 3.2 oz. Emulsifying Wax and 2.56 oz. Stearic Acid. 
  3. Place cup in microwave and heat until stearic and wax are completely melted, about 45 seconds. 
  4. To melted wax mixture, add 5.0 oz. Hemp Butter. Gently stir to allow butter to soften.
  5. Heat bowl of water in microwave for 1 minute. Pour warm oil/butter mixture into the warm water. Product will immediately turn a whitish color.
  6. Using a stick blender, begin to blend. Continue blending until mixture starts to thicken. 
  7. Add 0.64 oz. Vitamin E and fragrance. Continue blending.
  8. Check temperature to be sure lotion is under 176° F. Add 0.66 oz. Optiphen Plus and blend until all ingredients are well incorporated. 
  9.  Pour lotion into bottles. Let completely cool before capping so that condensation does not form on inside of bottle.
  10. Label product according to FDA guidelines.

WSP Questions And Answers

"I bought a saddle pump top for this lotion instead of the top given because the bottle is too difficult to squeeze. But, one of my customers came back to me showing me the top layer of the lotion was discolored and slightly hardened. Could this be the result of oxygen getting in from the new top? Or did I not mix the batch enough?"

"I LOVE LOVE this recipe; however, it seems that if the lotion gets to be about 4 months old, the hemp oil aroma wants to take over. It smells 'old' at only 4 months old, the fragrance is barely registerable. any suggestions? "
