Dreama Lotion Recipe: Lotion Making Preparations

Before you begin the Dreama scented lotion recipe, you will want to make a few preparations. To begin, you will want to gather your lotion recipe ingredients. It can be useful to collect what you need before making your bath and body product to make the process easier. Also, sanitize your equipment to make sure your work area is clean. Further, it is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while you prepare this recipe. After you have made these preparations, you will be ready to work on making this homemade lotion recipe!

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Prepare Your Water

First, you are going to want to prepare the water for this recipe. Before you begin, you will need to make sure that you have enough water to make your homemade lotion. This means that you will need at 425 grams of water. However, we would recommend that you add some extra water to your pot to ensure that you have enough water remaining after boiling. Some of the water will evaporate as it is boiling. It is better to have too much than not enough. You will need to heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have your water at this temperature keep the water there for about twenty minutes. Now that your water has been boiled to destroy any bacteria that may have been present, you are ready to create your scented lotion recipe!

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Creating the Double Boiler

Next, you are going to want to create the double boiler for this recipe. While you will still need to stir as the oils and butters are melting, the double boiler will be useful for preventing your cosmetic oils from scorching. To create this device you will need two pots that will fit into each other. In the larger pot, you will add a few inches of water, which will be heated to a boil. Next, place your smaller pot into your pot with water. Now, you will want to heat your water. As long as the water doesn’t boil over into the smaller pot, you are ready to add you cosmetic ingredients to melt.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Prepare Your Cosmetic OilsDreama Lotion Recipe: Prepare Your Cosmetic Oils

While you are waiting for your water to be ready, go ahead and weigh out your oils.  You will need to measure out 48 grams of the Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 24 grams of the Silky Emulsifying Wax, 10 grams of the Mango Butter, 8 grams of the Sodium Lactate, 10 grams of the Argan Oil, and 6 grams of the Vitamin E Oil. These wholesale ingredients are perfect for creating a quality and non-greasy homemade lotion. Then, add these cosmetic oils to the double boiler that you had prepared in a previous step. You are going to want to heat these ingredients to around 140 degrees Fahrenheit and stir periodically to prevent scorching.

 

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Combining Your Oil and WaterDreama Lotion Recipe: Combining Your Oil and Water

Now you are going to want to move quickly to over the next couple of steps. Both your oil mixture and your water will need to be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit when you mix everything together. Once your ingredients reach about this temperature, weigh out your water.  Then, combine these bath and body ingredients in a large mixing bowl. You will need to use a stick blender to combine all of these ingredients. As the mixture emulsifies, you will notice that the lotion mixture will begin to white in color.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilDreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

At this time, you will need to add 12 grams of the Dreama Fragrance Oil to your mixture. This scented oil has beautiful top notes of oakmoss and lilies. This floral scent continues with middle notes of ylang ylang and jasmine. Finally, this fragrance lays on bottom notes of amber, musk, and sandalwood. Of course, you will need to fully incorporate the fragrance oil. You can use the stick blender to ensure that the entire lotion mixture will include this lovely scent.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the PreservativeDreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Preservative

Next, you will want to add the preservative to your homemade lotion recipe. You will need to weigh out 10 grams of the Optiphen Preservative and add it to your lotion mixture. You want to add the preservative when the temperature is between 120-140F.  If the preservative is added at a temperature higher than this, it can burn off.  On the other hand, if it is added a temperature that is too low, it can cause it to separate from the lotion.

The preservative will ensure that your lotion recipe doesn’t become taken over by germs. This preservative protects against bacteria, yeast, and mold. Plus, this ingredient provides an exceptional feel to the finished lotion recipe. Plus, the wholesale preservative available at Natures Garden is paraben-free and formaldehyde-free.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the ColorantDreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Colorant

Also, you are going to want to add the wholesale colorant to your lotion. So, you will need to add 5 drops of the Yellow Da Bomb Soap Dye to your diy lotion. Once you have added your lotion colorant, you will want to fully incorporate this color into your lotion. You can use the stick blender to blend in the color evenly throughout your recipe so that the entire lotion includes a lovely yellow hue.

 

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Mica PigmentDreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Mica Pigment

Lastly, you are going to want to add a bit of the mica dust pigment to your lotion. You may want to add 1 teaspoon of the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment. Of course, this is totally optional.  However, mica will add a shimmer and shine to your handmade lotion. Again, once you have added the mica, you are going to want to add it to your lotion and mix with the stick blender.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Wholesale Packaging SuppliesDreama Lotion Recipe: Wholesale Packaging Supplies

For this cosmetic recipe, you have created a perfect homemade lotion for pump bottle use. So, you will most likely want to use our eight ounce bullet bottles and lotion pumps to package your finished scented lotion recipe. A single batch of this lotion recipe will fill two of our eight ounce bullet bottles. Before you begin to fill the bullet bottles you will need your lotion to cool to room temperature. Then, you are ready to begin filling your eight ounce bullet bottles with the finished lotion. We would recommend that you use a funnel to add your lotion to the bottles. Once your bottle is filled you will need to add the lotion pump lid to finish the recipe.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Finishing TouchesDreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Finishing Touches

Now that you have filled up your bullet bottles, you are ready to add the finishing touches. So, you are going to add a bow to the middle of your bottle. First, you are going to need your green ribbon. Next, you will need to tie a small bow. If you need help learning to tie a bow, then check out How to Tie a Perfect Bow by spruce crafts. Then, you will glue a ring of ribbon around the middle of the bottle and attach your bow to the seam where the two ends meet.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Using Your Scented Lotion

After your recipe is packaged, your scented lotion recipe is ready to use! In fact, you can use your lotion made from scratch as soon as you have finished creating it. Of course, you can leave your lotion pump lids closed and store your finished lotion. Also, you can add these bottles of lotion to your product line and sell your finished homemade lotion.

Wine Lotion RecipeWine Lotion Recipe

Our next recipe is a wine lotion recipe.  Like many of our customers, I too, love the wonderful aroma of red wine.  This homemade lotion recipe is scented with my favorite of Natures Garden’s wine scents, Shiraz Fragrance Oil.  This lotion contains many skin loving oils and butters like grape seed and jojoba.  So grab a glass of wine and get ready to prepare a couple bottles of wine scented lotion.

Grape Seed Oil
Jojoba Oil
Sodium Lactate
Silky Emulsifying Wax
Shiraz Fragrance Oil
Da Bomb Soap Dye Red
Da Bomb Soap Dye Blue
Vitamin E Oil

8 ounce Clear Boston Round Bottles
White Lotion Pumps 24/410
Thermometer
Resveratrol Extract Powder

Wine Lotion Recipe Other Equipment and Ingredients You Will Need

Mixing Bowls (2)
Scale
Spatula
Distilled Water
Pots (For Double Boiler)
Stove
Ziplock Bag
Scissors

Wine Lotion Recipe Prepare Your Work Area

Before we begin, clean and sanitize your work area and utensils.  You will also need to do the same with the packaging supplies.  We will be using two clear 8 ounce Boston round bottle and two 24/410 white lotion pumps when we create this lotion recipe.

Wine Lotion Recipe Weigh Out Your Ingredients

Wine Lotion Recipe Weigh Out Your IngredientsFirst, in a pot, weigh out 425 grams of water.  You will need to heat the water to 180 degrees.  Hold it at this temperature for 20 minutes.  This will destroy any bacteria.

In a second pot, weigh out 48 grams grape seed oil, 24 grams silky emulsifying wax, 10 grams cocoa butter, 10 grams jojoba oil, and 6 grams vitamin e oil.  Then, melt these ingredients using a double boiler.  Make sure you stir the oil occasionally as they are melting.  While you are waiting, move to the next step.  We will come back to both of these pots when they are ready.

Wine Lotion Recipe Preparing the Other Ingredients

Wine Lotion Recipe Preparing the Other IngredientsIt is best to weigh the other ingredients out ahead of time.  This way you are prepared ahead of time.  This will allow you to move quickly as you are making the lotion.  Temperatures are extremely important to achieve a proper emulsion when creating lotion.  So, using a scale, weigh out the remaining ingredients.  You will need four small bowls as each of the following will go in a separate bowl.  First, weigh 8 grams of sodium lactate.  Then, in the second bowl, add 3 grams of resveratrol along with 12 vegetable glycerin.  Mix these two together well.  In the third bowl, prepare your fragrance oil.  Weigh out 12 grams of Shiraz Fragrance Oil.  In the last bowl, weigh out 10 grams of your optiphen preservative.  Set these aside, we will come back to them.

Wine Lotion Recipe Putting it all Together

Next, we will be combining our water with our oils.  Before we begin we want to be sure to point out a couple of things in regards to your temperatures.  At this point, your temperatures are very important.  You want both the oils and water to be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  If your ingredients are not at the proper temperature you may experience separation.  In addition, the temperature is important when adding your preservative.  You want to add your preservative around 120 degrees if you add your preservative at too cool of a temperature your mixture will separate from the finished lotion.  If your temperature is too hot it will burn the preservative off.
Wine Lotion Recipe Putting it all TogetherNow, we will begin combining our oils and water.  Once both the oils and water have come to the proper temperature, we will need to move quickly.  So, once your water has been heated, remove it from the heat.  You want to let both your oils and water temperatures to drop to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, add 8 grams of sodium lactate to your water.  Make sure you stir in the sodium lactate completely.  Now, add your oils to your water.  Then, use your stick blender to mix them.  Mix until you notice the mixture turn white in color as it emulsifies.  Again, remember to pay close attention to your temperatures.  You do not want the temperature to drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wine Lotion Recipe Adding the Other Ingredients

Wine Lotion Recipe Adding the Other IngredientsNext, let’s add our preservative.  Remember, this needs to be added below 140 degrees Fahrenheit, but at a temperature no cooler than 120 degrees.  When the mixture drops to around 120 degrees add the 10 grams of optiphen preservative.  Additionally, this is when the colorant should be added.  So, at this time add 7 drops of red soap colorant and 3 drops blue fd&c dye.  You will also add the 12 grams Shiraz Fragrance Oil you weighed out earlier.  Mix your ingredients together using your stick blender.  Now you will need the resveratrol extract powder mixture you prepared.  Earlier, we dispersed the resveratrol powder extract in vegetable glycerin so that it can be added to your lotion without clumping.  Finally, at this time, add the resveratrol mixture you prepared earlier.  Once again use your stick blender to evenly and fully mix all of the potion’s ingredients.  Once everything is mixed, allow the lotion to set up.  You will notice the lotion thicken more as it cools.  Once it has set up, you are ready to package it.

Wine Lotion Recipe Packaging the Lotion

Wine Lotion Recipe Packaging the LotionLastly, we will be placing our lotion into the 8 ounce lotion bottles.  I have found it easiest to do this using a zip lock bag.  So, place the lotion in a ziplock bag.  Then, cut the corner.  We will be using the bag sort of like you would a decorating bag.  Once you have cut the corner, you can place the opening over the opening of the bottle.  Squeeze the bag gently to add the lotion to the first bottle.  Then, fill the second bottle.  Finally, place a white lotion pump on each bottle.  Your wine scented lotion is now complete!
