Straight from my class notes. I'm a nerd like that and kept all of my notes in a cute little notebook.
You can use just about any type of solid/liquid oil combinations here.
We chose to use 3 oz of coconut oil with 6 oz of canola oil.
Our super advanced method of melting the beeswax in the coconut oil and canola.
Next up was heating the water, just enough to get to body temperature.
Then we had to wait until the wax/oil mixture cooled to body temperature. That part took forever. We finally figured it out that if we took the wax/oil mixture to a cooler room in the house, they would cool off much faster than in the hot kitchen with the stove going and the wood stove cranking out some incredible heat.
We chose to use 4 oz jelly jars, but you could use just about any size jar - plastic or glass.
The 4 oz jelly jars were fairly inexpensive and were found at a local hardware store which meant they were readily available.
Jill mixed the oil/wax mixture with water and you get this creamy lotion.
We also added this Allantoin. We couldn't remember why we had it, but a quick internet search came up with this about it:
Sounded good to us, so we added it in.
Next up, add in your scent. We had plenty to choose from, but went with Toasted Coconut Oil,
Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Coconut Lime Verbena, Energy (a very orangey type of smell),
and then Grapefruit and Pink Sugar.
And to get the oil into the lotion, we used these little pipettes.
Using at least 30 drops of fragrance oil for each batch of lotion.
Then we topped each of the jars with a little Christmas Embellishment.
And labeled each jar.
And there you have it, our collection of yummy lotions.
