In this video you will find the recipe and tutorial for our Egyptian Mist light weight summer time lotion.
- Rosy Pink Layered Lotion
This recipe is a favored base recipe for a light lotion. The grape seed is a very light oil chock full of anti-oxidants and absorbs well into the skin. With a light summer recipe, you want to use oils that absorb more than oils that ride on top of the skin because people will pull them out on the go while they’re in the middle of the day and they don’t want to feel sticky and wet for more than just a few seconds. Grape seed is a good oil for fast absorption. The fragrance we use here is a dupe of a very popular brand. It is a very floral bouquet smell.
What you will need:
- 9.6 oz. of Grape seed oil
- 3 oz. of jojoba oil
- 3 oz. of e-wax
- 46 oz. of water
- 1 oz. Of Optiphen or Germall Plus
- 1 oz. of Love Spell Fragrance oil
- 1/8 th teaspoon of pink mica
Instructions & Notes:
First, sanitize your work station. Wear your gloves. Melt your waxes and oils together in a pot on the stove. Boil your water for sanitary reasons. Blend the two together and mix for several minutes. Allow this to cool below 140 degrees before you add your fragrance and preservative. The cooler the better.
Now, separate your mixture into two bowl and add the pink mica to one bowl. Mix well. Now pour your mixtures into plastic cake icing bags and seal the tops well. This can get messy so you want to work slowly and carefully. You do not need to put a metal tip at the end of your icing bag. Snip the end of one bag with a very small hole. By small, I mean only one or two millimeters. The thickness of your lotion will vary and it may be a very runny liquid at this stage. If it is too thick then cut a slightly larger hole. Pipe about 2 inches of lotion into the bottom of each bottle. Now, when you finish pinch and twist the end of the bag. Twist the ends and pinch then shut with a clamp or clothespin. If you don’t when you set it down it may untwist and pour out all over the table, so place your bag down correctly. Now repeat this step with the other batch and fill 2 inches into the bottle. Repeat in alternating colors until you have no more lotion left in your bags. Cap the tops and label accordingly.
