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, pour out 32 oz. of the Basic Lotion.
  3. Place in microwave and heat for about 1-2 minutes, taking out after 1 minute to stir. Product should thin out and become pourable, but DO NOT BOIL.
  4. To the thinned out lotion, add 4 teaspoons or 20 ml of fragrance oil. Stir gently to incorporate.
  5. Add 2 teaspoons of the Sparkle Dark Gold Mica Powder and stir until completely blended in.
  6. Pour into 7 lotion bottles. If lotion has thickened, place back in microwave for about 1 minute. Or, you can use a pastry bag to fill bottles. Product does not have to be thinned if using this.
  7. Continue with another 32 ounces of lotion and follow above steps.
  8. If using a pastry bag to fill bottles, a larger amount of lotion can be made at a time. If heating and thinning product, it is easier to make smaller batches for ease of pouring into bottles.
  9. Continue until desired amount of lotion has been made. Let lotion completely cool.
  10. Once all lotion has cooled, caps can be placed on bottles. Placing caps on warm lotion will result in condensation forming inside bottles.
  11. Label product accordingly.
