To Keep or Give…That Is The Question

Hey All,

Today I will share two recipes with you that work great! and are super easy to make! Enjoy for yourself or give as gifts! x0x0x0

First A Lotion Potion

Here’s what you need to make about a 12 oz batch of lotion: 1-cup pyrex glass measuring cup, 2-cup pyrex glass measuring cup and a medium saucepan.

Components: 

  • 1/4 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup liquid glycerin
  • 1/4 cup emulsifying wax (available at craft stores or look for it online)
  • 2-3 drops essential oil (pick your favorite)

The How To:

  • Fill your saucepan with tap water and set it on medium-low.
  • Combine the oil and emulsifying wax into the heat-proof 1-cup measurer. 
  • Place the 1 cup pyrex measurer inside the saucepan (the water in the saucepan will act as a hot water bath)
  • Heat until melted in the saucepan water bath.

Put on another saucepan or tea kettle to boil at least 1 cup water for the next step.

  • Fill the 2-cup pyrex measurer with the boiling water
  • When the oil/wax mixture has melted, pour the oil/wax into the boiled water and add the glycerin.
  • Your lotion should now have the consistency of skim milk.
  • Let it cool slightly, stir with a spoon 
  • Add your essential oil(s) now.
  • Pour the lotion into a bottle while it’s still warm and pourable. 
  • Leave the lid off to let it cool completely, but occasionally place the lid on and give it a good shake to help blend the mixture.

Voila! There you have great handmade lotion! You’re welcome 🙂

Sweet N Salty Scrub Body Polish

  • 1 cup Epsom salts or fine grain sea salt 
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup carrier oil (sweet almond oil or olive oil)
  • 5-10 drops essential oil(s)
  • 1-3 drops food coloring (optional)

The How To:

  • Stir salts and sugar together until evenly blended.
  • Add the carrier oil while mixing next add the essential oil(s) until thoroughly blended.

Add food coloring, if desired and stir until color is even throughout. Spoon into glass containers with a tight-fitting lid. Use and enjoy or give as gifts! 🙂
