For this project you will need:
Lotion Base (available at both the North and South)
Bottles (available at both the North and South)
Caps (available at both the North and South)
Coconut Scent (available at both North and South)
Bronze Mica (available only at the North location)
Because our lotion base is so thick, I have to gently warm it in the microwave or heat the gallon by placing in a sink of very hot tap water to be able to pour it into my bottles using a funnel. You can also use a cake decorator squeeze funnel, or a zip-lock bag with a corner cut off if pouring cold. If making full gallon batches, our gallon pumps are the easiest way to fill bottles. Do not heat the lotion base over 100* F. Add 1 oz of fragrance per gallon of lotion base or follow the chart located on this page for smaller amounts: http://www.candlesupply.com/BBfochart.html
You can also "customize" your base by adding 1/2 oz per gallon of any fixed oil! Soybean oil works great!
Happy Lotion Making!
