Vanilla Bean – Lightweight Lotion

Scrumptious Vanilla Lotion

This recipe make 64 oz. of lotion. That is 10 bottles at 6 oz. And leaves a few ounces left over to make a tester bottle. When you make lotions the oils may become fluffy and you may find that 6 oz. Of product actually fills an 8 or 10 oz. Bottle. When you make your labels, don’t forget to add the actual weight of the lotion and not the size of the bottle.

What you will need:

  • Sunflower oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • E-wax
  • distilled water
  •  Optiphen
  • Vanilla Bean Fragrance oil
  • Vanilla Stabilizer

Instructions & Notes:

I’m not a huge fan of vanilla, but I must tell you lots of people love it, and there are always people who ask for vanilla at our market tables.

There are dozens of vanilla based choices and the first thing you should know is that anything with vanilla will tint your products brown and over time they grow more brown. This is great if that is the color you are going for, and I don’t mind it, but if you want your lotion to stay white you will need to look for a vanilla stabilizer when you purchase vanilla scented oils.

First, get your gloves and clean your surfaces. Spray down your bottles and pumps with rubbing alcohol.

Heat up your water over the stove. And add your e-wax and oils. Into your simmering water and stand over the simmering pot and stir continuously. Turn off the heat after 10 minutes and continue stirring until it begins to cool. Only add the preservative after your lotion has cooled. Mix with your stick blender and pour into your jars. This will make a very light lotion with a rich moisturizing quality.
