Natures Garden's MASSAGE Lotion:  Clearance: Once this base is gone we will not be restocking it as the manufacturer has went out of business.  Unscented, uncolored.  No SLS, no phthalates.  Our massage lotion base can be used on people who are highly sensitive to many lotions on the market.  You are welcome to use the lotion base as it is, or you can color and fragrance the lotion.  If you desire to scent your lotion base, you will need to refer to the IFRA statement for the specific fragrance that you desire to use.  For massage lotions, you will want to refer to category #4  on the IFRA sheet for each fragrance you want to use to find out the maximum amount of fragrance that can be used in a finished product.    Please note that usually only 1% of fragrance is typically used in a massage lotions; while non-massage lotions will range from 1-5% fragrance level.  Attention: This lotion base is a thin lotion base.  All sales are final. 

How to make scented & colored lotions:  Add soap dye to the lotion base to color it.  Never use candle coloring for this.  Add your fragrance oil to the lotion, and mix. 

What to do if a fragrance oil makes your base too thin:  Sometimes a fragrance oil can thin a finished shampoo, bath gel, lotions.  If this happens, you will need to use a product called xanthum gum to thicken your product.  Xanthum gum is an all-natural thickener, and a little xanthum gum goes a long way.  Xanthum gum is used in a range of .1 to 1% of the overall mixture.  Start with only 1/2 tsp of xanthum gum, and add it to 1/4 cup of room temperature distilled water.  Use a hand mixer, and mix the water/xanthum gum on high speed for about 5 minutes.  Xanthum gum can clump up, so it is important that you mix it into the water thoroughly.  Quickly add the mixture to your  base and stir.  If you wait too long to add the xanthum gum mixture to the  base, you will end up with a product that looks like tapioca pudding.  Allow the product to set up.  This should thicken your  base.  While our xanthum gum was formulated to work in transluscent gel products, there are times that the fragrance itself may cloud the mixture. 

Massage Lotion Ingredients:  Purified Water, Stearic Acid, Mineral Oil, Triethanolamine, Cetyl Alcohol, DMDM Hydantoin, Glycerin , Isopropyl Palmitate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

I love this lotion base! It works perfectly with fragrance oils! A great body lotion, not just for massages.

Nice lotion - but awful for massage

3 Massage Lotion

Reviewer: from Seattle, WA

We ordered this as a massage lotion since the stuff we normally keep on hand from another supplier was on backorder. Not impressed. When they say in the description that this is a thin lotion, you have to understand that when warmed in a lotion bottle warmer it becomes the consistency of milk, and has more skid than glide when used in a massage. Our therapists finally refused across the board to use the stuff for massage.

On the other hand, this actually works really well as a basic hand lotion base. It feels silky on the skin, not leaving any greasy residue (part of the problem with it trying to be a massage lotion and failing). Customers love it. So now we'll just be using it for a different purpose than planned.

Love Love It

5 Massage Lotion

Reviewer: from Silver Spring, Md. USA

Love this base. It is so silky on the skin, sulfate free, and takes oils and scents very well. Also, like it because it is not too thick or greasy. Been looking for a lotion base with level of thickness for years. Because it is not too thick or greasy, it is easy to work with. This base is a winner.

Gtreat Massage Lotion

5 Massage Lotion

Reviewer: from PARKERSBURG, WV US

I sell this on my website and my customers love it. I add a little bit of grapeseed oil to it and fragrance. I bottle it up in the 8 ounce PET bottles with a lotion pump, attach a tag on it with a pretty ribbon, and sell. This leaves a soft smooth feeling on your skin without any greasy feeling.I haven't had any problems mixing it with FO either. I will be ordering a case of this soon. Please keep this in your line of bases NG. I love it.
