Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Prepare and Sanitize

Before you get started on making your homemade bath and body recipe, you will want to make sure that you are properly prepared. First, you will need to make sure that all the equipment that you will need is sanitized and ready for you to use. If any of your necessary equipment isn’t ready to use, then you will need to clean this equipment with soap and water. Also, you will need to make sure that your work space is clean and free of clutter. Another preparation that you will want to make is gathering all of your necessary ingredients. This will make the process of creating homemade lotion easier and even more fun! Once your ingredients, equipment, and work space are ready to use, then you will be ready to get started with this bath and body recipe.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Double BoilerCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Double Boiler

The last thing that you are going to want to set up before getting started with your cosmetic recipe is your double boiler. Anyone that already has a double boiler can move on to starting this cosmetic recipe. If you don’t already have a double boiler of your own, then you can make your own with supplies that you likely already have at your home. You will need to use two differently sized pots to create your double boiler. You will want to make sure that the smaller pot will fit into the larger pot. So, you can use the larger pot to hold the boiling water. Then, place your smaller pot inside the larger pot. You will need to make sure that the water won’t boil over. Once your water is boiling you will fill your smaller pot with the cosmetic ingredients that you need to melt.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Water Phase

First, you are going to prepare the water phase for your homemade conditioner. Before you weigh out the water for your cosmetic recipe, you will want to boil the water to kill germs. So, you will need to start with at least 850 grams of distilled water. It is important to have extra water before you begin boiling because some of the water will evaporate. You will need to heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit and hold this high temperature for at least 20 minutes. This will help you to destroy any bacteria that could be in the water.

Preparing the Water Phase: Add the Chickweed HerbPreparing the Water Phase: Add the Chickweed Herb

Now, we are going to create a tea using the chick weed herb.  This is just one way to infuse an herb into handmade lotions.  So, we will create a strong tea.  Fill three tea bags with the chickweed herb.  You will need about 3 tablespoons of the herb for each tea bag.  Then, add them to your water as it is boiling.  Chick weed herb is a wonderful herb that is wonderful for dry itchy skin.  American Indians were known for using chickweed for wounds and rashes.  Many use it to help with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and boils.  Chickweed helps with cell-proliferation.  This helps wounds heal faster.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Oil PhaseCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Oil Phase

Next, you are going to be preparing the oil phase of your refreshing body cream recipe. So, you are going to need to weigh out some of your cosmetic oils. You will need to use 16 grams of Stearic Acid, 48 grams of the Emulsifying Wax, 80 grams of Argan Oil, 36 grams of Lanolin Oil, and 20 grams of Cocoa Butter. After you have your ingredients measured, you will be ready to begin melting your scented lotion ingredients. Now, you can add all of these cosmetic supplies to your smaller pot. You will want to occasionally stir your ingredients as they are melting to avoid possible scorching. Once all of your body cream supplies are in a fluid state, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Weighing the Sterilized WaterCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Weighing the Sterilized Water

Once your water has been boiling for at least 20 minutes you will be ready to use your freshly sterilized water. Now, you can remove your water from the heat source, remove the tea bags, and weigh out 706 grams of your sterilized water. You can add this water to your medium mixing bowl. While you need to wait before mixing the cosmetic oils and water, you can move on to the next step in this bath and body recipe.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Mixing Your Oil and Water TogetherCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Mixing Your Oil and Water Together

Before you can mix your cosmetic oils with your prepared tea you need to make sure that these two phases are at the right temperature. The temperature is extremely important to ensure that the cosmetic ingredients emulsify with the water. Otherwise, your finished product will separate and not serve as a good lotion recipe. These two phases should each be at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit before combining the two. Also, you will want these phases to be no more than 10 degrees apart. You can use your candy thermometer to monitor the temperatures. Once you have the correct temperature, you can add both the water and oil to a larger mixing bowl. Then, you can use a stick blender to combine these two phases well. If you notice that your mixture is beginning to turn white as you continue to blend, then you will know that your mixture is emulsifying.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Remaining Cosmetic IngredientsCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Remaining Cosmetic Ingredients

Now that the water and cosmetic oils have been completely emulsified, you are going to want to let your mixture cool. So, you will want to monitor the temperature until it reaches about 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to be careful that you don’t go any lower than this temperature before you add your remaining cosmetic ingredients. Now you will need to weigh and add 10 grams of the Vitamin E Oil, 14 grams of the Optiphen Preservative, and 12 grams of the Cucumber Mint Fragrance Oil to your mixture. Again, you will want to use a stick blender to mix these newly added ingredients into your previously emulsified mixture.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Clean and Prepare

Before you begin creating your own scented lotion recipe, you may want to make a few preparations. First, you will want to gather your supplies for creating this recipe. Although this recipe doesn’t have very many ingredients, it can be useful to collect what you need before making your bath and body product. Also, prepare your equipment to make sure this process goes smoothly. Further, make sure that your equipment is all clean prior to starting to make your lotion recipe. Next, you will want to prepare an area that you can use to work on your cosmetic recipe. After you have made these preparations, you should be ready to work!

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Sanitizing the Water

Now that you have created your double boiler you are ready to sanitize and prepare your water. First, you will need to make sure that you have enough water to make your lotion. So, you will need at least seven and a half ounces of water. However, we would recommend that you add some extra water to your pot to ensure that you have enough water remaining after some of the water evaporates. You will need to heat the water to at least 185 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once you have your water at the proper temperature keep the water at this temperature for at a minimum of five minutes. Now that your water is sanitized, you are ready to create your scented lotion recipe!

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Cooling Your Sanitized Water

Now that any bacteria that may have been living in the water has been killed off, you can use this water to create this cosmetic lotion recipe. Although you needed to heat the water to sanitize it, you will need to cool the water before you can use it. Otherwise, the boiling hot water could potentially break down the lotion base, which would ruin the ingredients in the multi base. So, you will need to wait for your water’s temperature to drop to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. While you wait for the temperature to lower to the proper temperature you can prepare some of your other cosmetic ingredients.

Now that your water has cooled, you are ready to add it to the lotion base. If you didn’t wait for the water to cool down properly, you could’ve potentially ruined the lotion base. This could occur because a multi base can start to break down once it gets too hot. So, you can retrieve your medium mixing bowl to add the sanitized water. Now, use your scale to measure out seven and a half ounces of water. Although your water won’t be scorching hot, it should still be warm enough, at one hundred degrees Fahrenheit, to melt the lotion base as the lotion making ingredients are mixed together.

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Emulsifiers

One of the most important parts of making lotion is the emulsifier. This is the ingredient that keeps everything together because the oils and water that are being mixed would separate otherwise.

You are going to need to boil the water to kill bacteria and make sure your lotion is as clean as possible. After your water is heated, you are going to need 48 ounces. So, make sure that you have more than this amount in your stove pot, as the some of the water will evaporate during the heating process.

Now, you will need to heat your water to at least 185 degrees Fahrenheit. After the water reaches this temperature, you will want to make sure the water holds this temperature for at least five minutes. Once this amount of time has passed, you can remove the pot of water from the heat source. You will need to measure 48 ounces of the water into one of your mixing bowls. At this point, you are going to want your measured water to cool a bit. After your water has cooled you can move on to the next step.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Cooling the Water

Next, we are going to mix the water with the Goat’s Milk Multi-Base Lotion. Before you go to start mixing these ingredients, you need to make sure that your water is at the right temperature. First, you need to let your water cool down. While we needed to boil the water to sterilize it, we can’t immediately use the hot water in this mixture. If we use this hot water with our lotion base, then we are likely going to break down the base. So, you are going to need to cool your water to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit before you can combine this with the base.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Combining the Water and Lotion BaseShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Combining the Water and Lotion Base

Now that your water has cooled to the right temperature you are ready to add the goat milk lotion base to the water. So, weigh 16 ounces of the Goat’s Milk Multi-Base Lotion and add it to your previously measured 48 ounces of water. After you combine these two ingredients you are going to mix them well. You will need to use your stick blender to emulsify these two ingredients together. So, you will want to continue mixing until all the water has been incorporated. If you are wondering when your mixture is finished, then know that you will be able to tell that you are done when the mixture looks like lotion.

Now that your homemade lotion has been made, we are ready to add the color to your recipe. I added this at the same time as my water,  You can add it before the water or after, the choice is totally yours.  While this lotion won’t help you get a tan, it is perfect for adding a bit of color to your skin while you moisturize. For this homemade lotion recipe we are using organic cocoa powder to create a natural color for this lotion. So, take 5 teaspoons of the Organic Cocoa Powder and add it to your lotion base mixture. After the cocoa powder has been measured and added to your mixture, you need to mix thoroughly. You will need to make sure to break up any clumps of the herb. Breaking these clumps will ensure that the color is distributed evenly throughout the entire mixture. It may be helpful to use the stick blender again to mix this all together. This will leave your lotion with a light, bronzing pigment that is beautiful and naturally colored.

Next, you are going to want to add the scented oil into your bronzing lotion. This ingredient takes your gorgeous and nourishing lotion and brings it up a notch. So, you are going to measure 1.92 ounces of the NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion Fragrance Oil. You can either weigh this amount in a small bowl or directly into the lotion mixture. Then, you will want to combine the scented oil with your lotion and mix well. Once all of your fragrance oil has been thoroughly included into the lotion mixture. After everything is mixed together you are ready to move on to the next step.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Shimmer and SparkleShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Shimmer and Sparkle

We can’t forget about adding all the shimmer and shine! Our last ingredient for this recipe is going to be the gorgeous 24 K Gold Mica Pigment. This ingredient is going to enhance the gold hue of the natural colorant and leave you sparkling. So, let’s get started! You will need to take three teaspoons of the gold mica pigment and add it to your lotion. Then, make sure that you thoroughly mix the mica into your lotion recipe. After all the sparkle and shine has been completely incorporated, your lotion will be ready to use. If you feel like you need a bit more glam, then you can try adding a bit more mica. However, our recipe has a great amount of shine. So, you should have enough glam for your pretty bronzing lotion.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Packaging You Finished Product

Next, you are going to bottle up your finished homemade bronzer lotion. Since it would be difficult to pour your lotion directly into a bottle from the mixing bowl, we are going to take a different approach to packaging. First off you are going to need to transfer all of your lotion into the gallon Ziplock bag. You can use your mixing spoon or spatula to transfer everything into the Ziplock. After, you are going to seal the bag and use a pair of scissors to cut a small piece off the corner of the bag. However, you may want to set up your 8 oz bullet bottle before cutting the bag. Now can use your Ziplock bag to neatly and quickly fill your bottles. Once you have filled all your clear bullet bottles you can screw the 24/410 lotion pump onto your bottles

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Using Your Finished Product

Finally, your diy bronzer lotion is complete and ready to use! You can perfectly use this lotion to add a bit of color and shimmer to your skin. You will be able to use this delightful cosmetic lotion to add a bronzing glow to your skin. Just remember that this lotion isn’t meant for helping tan, but just adds some color and nourishes your skin. While the lotion is perfect for adding some color to your skin, the appearance isn’t the only benefit that you can get from this lotion base recipe. Our effective lotion base recipe uses wonderful, skin-loving ingredients that create a great lotion recipe. This Lotion Multi-Base uses vitamins and luxurious cosmetic oils. You are sure to love this homemade cosmetic lotion recipe!

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Standards of Beauty Through Time

While it may seem like the standard of beauty that we all know of today is obvious and permanent, there are other ideas on what is beautiful is different through time and in different cultures. I’ve always found it interesting to learn about all the changes in preferences for make up, fashion, and body type. Some ideas of ideal beauty from times and places are even considered unattractive today and vice versa. For example, in the Elizabethan Era pale skin was considered ideal and women would use a white powder, ceruse, to make themselves look paler. So, the idea of tanning or using bronzing lotion would’ve been ridiculous to people of this culture. But, this isn’t the only way that cosmetics were used differently throughout history. There are even more beauty standards throughout history. A Buzzfeed Article called “This Is How Dramatically Women’s Makeup Has Changed Throughout History” talks about a few different appearance preferences that people have tried to achieve through cosmetics.

Hair Conditioner for BrunettesHair Conditioner for Brunettes

Today we will talk about a hair conditioner for brunettes.  We have talked about a daily conditioner for blonde hair and even a hibiscus conditioner for red heads but for those with brown hair, have you ever added tried a coffee rinse? Well at Natures Garden, we thought, why not add it right to a conditioner so it can be used as needed. This handmade conditioner is made with actual to help enhance your natural brown hair color. In addition, we added some wonderful oils. We used both apricot oil and sesame oil.  However, the best thing about making your own products is being able to customize and control the ingredients.  This will allow you to customize your conditioner to both your customer’s needs, as well as your own.

Scissors

Freshly Brewed Coffee

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Total Recipe Weights

425 grams Brewed Coffee
25 grams Vegetable Glycerin
25 grams BTMS 25
10 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
10 grams Sesame Seed Oil
26 grams Jamaican Vanilla Cafe Fragrance Oil
5 grams Optiphen Preservative
5 grams Vitamin E Oil

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Jamaican Vanilla Cafe Fragrance Oil

For this conditioner recipe we used Jamaican Vanilla Cafe Fragrance Oil.  How does Jamaican Vanilla Cafe Fragrance Oil smell?  It smells AMAZING! This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a harmony of rich roasted Jamaican coffee and sweet vanilla beans making this scent a delightful temptation.  An NG Original Fragrance!

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Preparations

First, prepare the area where you will be working. You will want to clean your work area. In addition, you want to both clean and sanitize your packaging supplies that you will be using. We also suggest wearing protective clothing such as gloves, an apron, and a hair net while preparing your hair conditioner.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Achieving the Proper Emulsion

At this time, we should talk about the importance of temperature when preparing this recipe. There are a few reasons why temperature is important.  I would like to point this out for those that have never made this type of recipe. It is important to know this before you begin so that you are properly prepared.  First, your temperature is important in order to create a proper emulsion. You want to make sure the temperature of both your coffee and your oils are around 140 degrees Fahrenheit when you blend them. If they are not at the correct temperature, your conditioner can completely separate.

In addition, it is important when adding your preservative. If you add your preservative when your conditioner is too hot, your preservative will burn off.  If your emulsion is too cool the preservative will separate out of conditioner. You want to add your preservative at a temperature below 140 degrees Fahrenheit, but you do not want it to get below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Coffee for Your Hair

In this hair conditioner recipe we used freshly brewed coffee. Coffee is often used in natural hair dyes.  It helps cover grays and add dimension to brown hair. In addition, you don’t have to use harsh chemicals to color your hair. We all know that hair dye, whether it be from the store, or the salon, isn’t really that great for our hair.  I mean sure we look and feel amazing, but think about the damage that it can do to our hair.  Is it really worth it?

 

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Preparing your CoffeeHair Conditioner for Brunettes: Preparing your Coffee

Next, we will prepare our coffee.  There really are two different ways you can do this. First, simply make a pot of coffee.  However, it is still important that the bacteria is destroyed.  So, make sure your coffee stays around 180 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

Another option is to basically create a tea using coffee grounds.  This can be done by adding coffee grounds to a tea bag or two and adding it to your water. So, first, fill your tea bag.  Then, on your stove, heat your distilled water. You want to heat the water to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  While you will only need 425 grams of water, make sure you add plenty of water. You will need to hold the temperature at this temperature for 20 minutes.  Some of your water will evaporate during this time. However, it is important that you heat for twenty minutes to destroy any bacteria.  Add you tea bag to your water. Allow the teabag to steep to create a very dark coffee water. This will create the coffee that will be used in your conditioner.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Choosing Your OilsHair Conditioner for Brunettes: Choosing Your Oils

Now, we will also be preparing the oils portion of this recipe. We here at Natures Garden used avocado oil for our conditioner.  As I said earlier, we created these conditioners for each hair color, customizing them to the hair care needs of one of the members of Natures Garden’s Creative Team.  In this case, Deborah chose apricot kernel oil and sesame seed oil.  While these are the oils that she chose, and by the way loved, you can customize your conditioner for your hair needs. You can use a total of 20 grams of oil in any combination that you feel will suit you. It will require testing of course to perfect the conditioner to your needs. You can read about the oils for various hair types here. Whether your hair is thick or fine, oily or dry, you will find the perfect oil for you!

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Choosing Your OilsHair Conditioner for Brunettes: Preparing Your Oils

Next, you will need to prepare the oils that you will be using in this recipe. We will us a double boiler to melt your oils on the stove top. So, you will need to get your large pot and add a few inches of water. Then, heat the water over medium heat.  You can allow the water to heat as you are preparing your oils.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Choosing Your Oils

 

 

 

 

Now, you will need your small pot. In this pot, weigh out and add 25 grams Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams BTMS 25, 10 grams Sesame Seed Oil and 10 grams Apricot Kernel Oil. Then, place your small pot inside the larger pot of water on your stove.  Allow your oils to melt, make sure you are stirring occasionally as they are melting.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Mixing Your Oils and Herbal Tea Together

You want to move quickly through the next couple of steps as this is where the temperatures are very important in order to achieve a proper emulsion. So, get a deep mixing bowl.  Then, weigh out 425 grams of the coffee.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Mixing Your Oils and Herbal Tea Together

 

In addition, remove your melted oils from the heat.  Then, allow the temperature of both the oils and your coffee to drop to about 140 degrees Fahrenheit before moving on.

 

 

 

 

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Mixing Your Oils and Herbal Tea Together

Next, at this time, go ahead and add your oils to your coffee. Finally, use your stick blender to emulsify your ingredients.  You should notice the color of your mixture will start to change.  You want to continue to mix, ensuring that your conditioner is completely blended. However, be careful not to allow the temperature of the mixture to drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Adding the Final Conditioner Ingredients

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Adding the Final Conditioner Ingredients

Finally, we will be adding just a few more ingredients to our mixture.  We need to add scent, a preservative, and vitamin E oil.  As we talked about earlier, all three of these ingredients need to be added at a temperature no cooler than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, add 26 grams of your Jamaican Vanilla Cafe Fragrance Oil, 5 grams Optiphen Preservative, and 5 grams Vitamin E Oil. Then, once again, use your stick blender to incorporate all of the ingredients fully. Continue to stick blend the mixture until your are sure everything is completely blended.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Cooling the Conditioner

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Cooling the Conditioner

Once you have stick blended your conditioner fully and completely, the only thing left to do is wait.  You want you conditioner’s temperature to drop to room temperature.  You will notice that your conditioner is still very thin.  As the conditioner for brunettes cools, it will begin to get thicker.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Packaging Your Conditioner

Now, once your handmade conditioner has reached room temperature, you are ready to package your conditioner.  We chose the 8 ounce Boston round bottles to package our conditioner.  However, you can use whichever bottle you choose.  If you choose these same bottles, you will need two of them.  We do offer a variety of bottles and lids available to package your brunette conditioner. Next, get your bottles out at this time. Set them in front of you so that you are prepared to place your conditioner into the bottles.

First though you will need your gallon sized Ziploc bag.  Next, place your conditioner in the bag.  If you would like, you can place the gallon bag inside a small bowl.  Then, wrap the opening of the bag around the bowl.  This will keep the bag open while you add the conditioner to the bowl. This makes it a lot easier when putting my conditioner into the bag.  Once you have filled your bag, remove as much air as possible. Then, go ahead and close the bag.

Next, we will cut the corner of the bag.  You just need to cut the corner a bit to create a hole.  All we are doing is basically creating a decorating bag.  We will line the hole in the bag up with the opening of our bottle to fill it.  Go ahead and fill your bottle with the conditioner.

Hair Conditioner for Brunettes: Packaging Your ConditionerOnce your bottle is full, place a lid on top.  We used the white pump tops. Once you have placed a lid on top you are finished. Your conditioner for brunettes is now ready to use!  Simply wash your hair then use the conditioner as you would your normal hair conditioner.  We have found that the longer you leave it on before rinsing, the better results you will see. While the results aren’t permanent, they will stay for a bit and with regular your hair should stay a lovely brown color.

 

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this hair conditioner for brunettes. Did you know that we have a wide variety of candle making, soap making, and cosmetics making recipes found in our free classes and recipes box? We would love to see all of the wonderful creation you have been working on.  Tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.  You can also post pictures of your finished handcrafted candles, soaps and cosmetics on our Facebook page.  Be sure to follow us on our social media pages as well.

Almond Body Cream a Closer Look at the Ingredients Used

Almond Fragrance Oil is amazing for a lotion.  It is an almond scent that is similar to a popular brand.  Our almond scented oil is a true almond aroma and a Natures Garden best selling fragrance oil!

Shea butter not only naturally contains vitamins, it also acts a humectant. In addition, it is often used in the medical industry as a base for many ointments due to its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti inflammatory properties.

Sweet Almond Oil is light, moisturizing, and easily absorbed into the skin. This means you will remain moisturized without the extra grease some creams and lotions can leave.

Macadamia Nut Oil is wonderfully nourishing for dry skin, leaving it soft and smooth.  In addition, it is high in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. It also has high levels of antioxidants. Finally, just like sweet almond oil, it is easily absorbed by the skin, without the greasy feel.

Silky Emulsifying Wax is an emulsifier that helps your oils and butters mix with your water based ingredients.  In addition, this particular emulsifier will leave your skin feeling silkier compared to other types of emulsifiers.

Vitamin E Oil is used in this lotion recipe as an antioxidant. So, what exactly does this mean? Oils, like the carrier oils used in this almond body cream recipe, will go rancid and turn brown over time. Natures Garden carries pure Tocopherol T-50 vitamin E oil that is used to slow this process.

Stearic Acid is used in both creams and lotions. Stearic acid acts as a thickener in this product, and in other cosmetic recipes. Without stearic acid, this cream would not have the wonderful thickness that we love.

Optiphen preservative is used to prevent the growth of things like bacteria, yeast, and mold. Now, some believe that vitamin E oil can be used a preservative.  However, vitamin E is not a preservative, it cannot prevent bacteria growth.

36 grams Macadamia Nut Oil

80 grams Sweet Almond Oil

48 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax

16 grams Stearic Acid

Almond Body Cream RecipeAlmond Body Cream Recipe Preparations Preparations Prior to Starting

Before you start making your almond body cream recipe, make sure you have everything you need near your work station. This recipe will create five 8 ounce jars of lotion. So, you will want to get five of your 8 ounce jars out, along with five 70/400 straight smooth white lids. Additionally, you are going to want to make sure your work area, packaging materials, and equipment are cleaned and sanitized. At this time you also will want to get out any ingredients you will be using and place them in your work area. Taking these little steps ahead of time will ensure that making this recipe will go as smoothly as possible. Finally, we recommend wearing gloves, a hair net, and an apron when preparing this recipe. So, go ahead and put those on at this time.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 1: The Water PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 1: The Water Phase

First, you will need to prepare the water needed for your homemade lotion. So, you are going to need to weigh out at least 850 grams of distilled water. While the recipe only calls for 706 grams of distilled water, you always want to account for the water that evaporates when you are heating it on your stove top. Remember, it is always better to have too much water than not enough. So, if you are over the 850 grams, that is okay, we will be weighing the portion of the water we will be using for the cream later. Now, go ahead and place the water into a pot and place the pot on the stove. Heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You will need to keep the water at 180 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 20 minutes. The heat will destroy any bacteria that is in the water. After 20 minutes, you can now remove your water from the heat source. Finally, you will weigh out the water that you will be using for the almond cream. So, weigh out 706 grams of the heated distilled water from your initial 850 grams of distilled water.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 2: The Oil PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 2: The Oil Phase

Next, weigh out all of the following ingredients: 80 grams of stearic acid, 48 grams of silky emulsifying wax, 80 grams of sweet almond oil, 36 grams of macadamia nut oil, and 20 grams of shea butter. You will be melting the oils, butters, and waxes using the double boiler method. You will need two pots, one larger than the other. Next, in the larger pot, add a few inches of tap water. Now, place the larger pot, containing the water, on the stove top over medium heat. Then, place all of your oils, butters, and waxes you weighed out into your smaller pot. Finally, put your smaller pot filled with all your weighed out ingredients into the larger pot containing the water. This will create a double boiler. Lastly, melt and heat your cream ingredients to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to stir occasionally as you are melting the ingredients.  Stirring will prevent scorching of the oils. In addition, it will ensure an even temperature throughout the waxes, butters, and oils.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 3: The Mixing PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 3: The Mixing Phase

Once the temperatures of your water, along with your oil, wax and butter mixture are both at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit, place them both into a deep mixing bowl. For this bowl, the deeper the better so you don’t lose any of your mixture as you are blending. Now, use your stick blender to blend your water and other ingredients together. You will need to mix very well. You will find that while stick blending the ingredients, the mixture will turn white in color. This is a great sign. It means your almond body cream is starting to emulsify. Continue to stick blend until your lotion begins to emulsify.  Then, in the next step, we will be adding a few more ingredients.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down Phase

Last, are entering the final phase, phase 4. We refer to this as the cool down phase. During this phase, your handmade body cream will really begin to take shape. Allow your mixture from phase 3 to cool to 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature of the cream has cooled to this temperature, you will be adding a few more ingredients. However, first, I would like to point out the importance of temperature.  When it comes to adding you preservative, it is extremely important to pay very close attention and add it at the correct time.  If you add a preservative at temperatures above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the preservative will burn off.  This will leave your finished product unprotected.  A preservative prevents the growth of bacteria in the product.  Now, if you add the preservative below 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you may notice the preservative will separate from the lotion or cream. So, just remember to pay close attention to those temperatures and your cream will turn out perfectly!

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down Phase

Now, since your temperatures are correct, you are ready to add the last few ingredients. You are going to need to add 14 grams of your optiphen preservative,10 grams of vitamin E oil, and 12 grams of Natures Garden’s Almond Fragrance Oil. Once these are added, you will once again, use your stick blender to mix your ingredients together. You want to make sure you have all three ingredients mixed thoroughly and evenly into the body cream. As your almond body cream cools, it will continue to thicken to a cream consistency. You will want to stick blend the body cream periodically as the almond cream is cooling. Each time you stick blend the cream, it will get thicker. Once your almond cream reaches room temperature, it will be a thick luscious body cream.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Packaging Your ProductAlmond Body Cream Recipe Packaging Your Product

Finally, now that your almond body cream has cooled and reached room temperature, fill each of your five 8 ounce jars and place the smooth straight lid on top of each of the jars. There are a few different ways you can fill the jars. When we created our cream, we used a bowl with a spout. So, we just simply slowly poured our cream right into the jars. Another option is using a spoon to scoop the almond body cream into each jar. Alternatively, you can also use a Ziploc bag, cutting the corner to create a decorating bag, and fill the jar that way. This homemade cream recipe will make approximately five of the 8 oz jars.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Using the LotionAlmond Body Cream Recipe Using Your Handmade Cream

When creating this body cream, we used our Almond Fragrance Oil but you can always use another body safe fragrance oil if you would like. In addition, we chose to keep the body cream its natural color. However, you can add color if you wish to. If you do decide to color this recipe, you will want to use one of our Da Bomb Soap Dyes. You will just need to add a couple drops at a time until you get the color you are looking for! Alternatively, you can infuse herbs to naturally color your homemade cream lotion. There are just so many options, you can truly make this craft unique to you!  The sky is the limit!
