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. On a burner over low heat, or in a double boiler, heat the Emulsifying Wax, Stearic Acid, Butters and Oils until completely melted.
  3. Take pan off the heat and add Vitamin E, Fragrance Oil and Phenonip. Stir well. NOTE: the recipe uses 1% fragrance oil for a light cotton candy scent. If you wish to have a stronger scent then you may double the amount of fragrance oil used.
  4. Place pan in fridge or freezer until the edges start to harden against the pan and a layer begins to form on top.
  5. Using a hand mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk mixture until it turns creamy and opaque.
  6. If necessary, put mixture into a larger bowl to mix in sugar.
  7. Add sugar and whisk until completely blended.
  8. Add 1/8 tsp. of Neon Pretty in Pink Powder and whisk until blended. Continue to add and blend until you achieve the desired color.
  9. Add 2-3 ml of Jojoba Beads and whisk until blended.
  10. Scoop into containers. Each container will hold 8 oz. by weight.
  11. We have included a template to print labels for your jars:

"Is it possible to make a larger batch size without any fragrance and then add fragrance to small amounts when needed? If so, would I just slightly warm what I need to mix in the fragrance? I have made this before and love it but I don't want to have to make each time. I have a large enough container to tightly seal for up to a year. Thank you for your response. "
