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. All ingredients should be weighed to ensure lotion comes out correctly.
  3. In a plastic beaker, weigh 0.64 oz. of Hot Cocoa Fragrance Oil with 0.64 oz. of Vanilla Color Stabilizer for Lotions/Washes. Set mixture aside.
  4. In large bowl, weigh and add Soybean Oil, Mid Chain Triglycerides Liquid, Macadamia Nut Butter, Cocoa Butter and Palm Oil. To this add 4.0 ounces of emulsifying wax.
  5. Place bowl in microwave and heat for about 1 minute. This should be just enough to warm all ingredients and melt the emulsifying wax.
  6. Remove from microwave and gently stir to make sure the wax has completely melted.
  7. Measure 22.4 oz. of water into a bowl and heat in microwave for about 1 minute. Pour warmed water into bowl with oil/butter/wax mixture. 
  8. With hand mixer or stick blender, begin to blend water/wax mixture. 
  9. Continue to mix, scraping sides of bowl with spatula.
  10. Once lotion has thickened, add fragrance mixture, vitamin E and Optiphen Plus preservative.
  11. Continue to mix. Lotion will become light and airy with mixing.
  12. Remove 8 oz. (1 cup) of lotion and place in separate bowl. To remaining lotion, add Gingerbread Brown and Caramel Brown Butterscotch Mica Powder to color. Mix color in well.
  13. Using a cake decorating piping bag or Decorator Pro, fill each bottle with colored lotion filling about 3/4 full.
  14. Pipe uncolored lotion on top of lotion in bottle (dividing between 4 bottles).
  15. Cut dip tube to length of bottle and place on top.
  16. Label product accordingly.

"Hi, I made this last night and my daughter made the apple cider. Both recipes are very similar, almost exact. Her's separated terribly and both of ours has the color sitting at the bottom. Any ideas what went wrong? We used the colors the recipe called for. Thanks, Lynda"
