Recipe Directions

  1. 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.
  2. In a large glass measuring cup, empty 40 oz. of Liquid Suspension Soap Base.
  3. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from oven and stir slightly.
  4. In a small glass container, measure out 24 ml of fragrance oil. Add 1/2 teaspoon of basil powder and mix until well blended in.
  5. Add to liquid soap base and mix gently with a wire whisk.
  6. Place one 8 oz. bottle on a digital scale and tare to zero. Pour liquid soap into bottle until scale reaches 9 ounces. Continue with remaining 3 bottles.
  7. With remaining product that is left in bowl, pour excess into an empty amber bottle and set aside for later.
  8. Repeat above steps to make next 4 bottles of product pouring the excess liquid soap into the partially filled bottle.
  9. For last 5 bottles, pour remaining 48 oz. liquid soap into bowl.
  10. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from oven and stir gently.
  11. Add 3/4 teaspoon of basil powder and a little under 1 oz. (28.5 ml) of fragrance.
  12. Pour product into remaning 5 bottles and topping off the partially filled which will be the 14th bottle of product.
  13. Let product cool completely before placing pumps on bottles. The dip tubes will need to be trimmed to fit the length of the bottle.
