  3. Add fragrance and stir well. 
  4. Using funnel, pour half of the heated lotion back into the gallon jug. Screw cap back onto gallon jug and shake well until thoroughly incorporated. Repeat, adding the remaining heated lotion.
  5. Insert gallon pump and pump lotion into each bottle. Fill fifteen 8 oz. bottles to 8 oz. by weight. Any remaining product can be divided equally among the bottles.
  6. Allow to cool completely. 
  7. Trim dip tubes to fit bottles and twist on pump tops.
  8. Label accordingly. 
To Use: Massage onto skin as often as needed.
