  2. Microwave in 1 minute increments, stirring in between, until lotion is 130ºF. (Do not exceed 140ºF).
  3. Combine Fragrance Oil and Vanilla Color Stabilizer in plastic beaker. Mix well and allow to sit for 2 minutes.
  4. Add 0.10 oz. Forest Green Liquid to heated lotion. Add more color for a darker shade. Add fragrance mixture and stir well.
  5. 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.
  6. Insert gallon pump and pump lotion into each bottle. Fill twelve 8 oz. bottles to 8 oz. by weight, four 4 oz. bottles to 4 oz. by weight and four 2 oz. bottles to 2 oz. by weight. Any remaining product can be divided equally among the bottles.
  7. Allow to cool completely. Apply caps.
  8. Label accordingly.
