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.

What is Spinach Powder Used for? At Natures Garden we use herbs, like Spinach Leaf Powder, for creating all sorts of lovely cosmetic products. This powered herb is perfect for adding to your homemade soap supplies, lotion making supplies, and supplies for many more wonderful cosmetic recipes. Not only can you use spinach as a natural colorant, but it is full of great properties and nutrients for the entire body. You can eat fresh leaves of spinach and you can use the spinach in a powdered herb to nourish your body inside and out!

Spinach plants prefer to grow in cooler temperatures. For common spinach, you will want to plant in midsummer. If you have a mild winter, you could even plant in the fall. However, this depends on your climate. Either way, the soil should not be over 70 degrees Fahrenheit for your seeds. However, your spinach is able to survive all the way down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your spinach sprouts are about two inches high, you should thin them to be about three inches apart. After this, all you have to do is water regularly and use mulch to keep them moist. You can harvest the leaves whenever they are big enough, but you should try to cut the outer leaves first. This will ensure that the middle leaves can continue to grow.

One wonderful tip for reducing damage due to leaf miners is to plant radishes. The radishes will not only distract the pests from your spinach, but the roots will continue to grow unaffected! While starting sprouts inside and transplanting them will be less appealing to pests like cutworms, there are other preventative measures you can take. For wireworms, can try to plant carrots nearby to trap these pests. Then, every few days after the carrot has reached maturity you can pull up the carrots, remove the worms, and replant the affected carrot. For flea beetles, you can try to lay reflective mulch or aluminum to ward them off.

What is Spinach Powder Used for?: Tips for Making Your Spinach Last

Here are a few tips on how to store your leafy, food grade spinach. First, you will want to pick out yellow and wilted leaves. Plus, you shouldn’t store things like, tomatoes, apples, or melons nearby, because the spinach is sensitive to the chemicals that these fruits produce. Also, make sure that you don’t wash your spinach before storing and you will want to add a paper towel to your container. These will both help keep the moisture levels down and prevent premature wilting.

While this will help you keep your spinach fresh longer, you don’t want to have to store spinach long. Studies on folate in spinach have shown that about half of this vitamin’s amount was gone after seven days. If you have a lot of spinach grown, then you can try freezing to extend your storage time to about two or three months. Check out How to Store Spinach by Garden Guides to learn more tips on making your spinach last!

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.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Measuring the Fragrance OilShimmering Lotion Recipe: Measuring the Fragrance Oil

First, you can measure out the fragrance for you scented lotion recipe. So, grab and medium mixing bowl and some disposable pipettes. Since our disposable pipettes have measurements along the side, you can use one of these pipettes to measure out 9 milliliters of the Frost and Snowdrops Fragrance Oil.

Finally, this fragrance has base notes of iced musk, vanilla, and sandalwood. So, this is a fantastic ingredient that you can add to this lovely bath and body recipe.

We include up to 1% of this preservative in our formulations. Although you can use up to 5% of this preservative safely, you can use 0.1 to 0.2 percent of Germall Plus to effectively preserve your lotion.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Sanitized WaterShimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Sanitized Water

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.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Mixing the Cosmetic Ingredients TogetherShimmering Lotion Recipe: Mixing the Cosmetic Ingredients Together

Next, we are going to emulsify these three cosmetic ingredients to create our scented lotion. So, you will need to use a stick blender to mix these ingredients thoroughly. Once all of your ingredients have been blended together fully, you will be finished with the mixer. Although your mix of cosmetic ingredients will be a bit thin at this point, the scented bath and body recipe will thicken as this the ingredients cool. Since we have a few more ingredients to add, your lotion should be ready to scoop into the wholesale cosmetic jars once everything has been combined.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Mica DustShimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Mica Dust

Finally, you are ready to add the shimmer and shine to your scented lotion. So, you can use a measuring spoon to add two teaspoons of the diamond dust mica powder to your lotion mixture.

This will leave you with a finished product that glistens like sunlight off the fresh blanket of powdery snow!

Aloe Body Cream: What Exactly is AloeAloe Body Cream: What Exactly is Aloe

So what is Aloe exactly? Well, most of us know it is a plant, and the gel that you squeeze from the plant is a must have to help soothe a summer sunburn. However, there are so many other uses and benefits from this spiky looking plant. Aloe barbadensis miller, or Aloe Vera, is a succulent plant that is native to the Mediterranean region as well as East and South Africa area. It is an incredibly adaptable plant and can now be found on just about any continent! Aloe Vera is one of the oldest known plants that has been used medicinally and can be traced back over 6,000 years to ancient Egypt. Ancient carvings contain images of the aloe plant, which they referred to as the “plant of immortality.” It was supposedly given as a gift to deceased pharaohs.

There is more to this plant than the use of its gel for sunburn, though. It contains many nutrients and minerals that are important to the body. Manganese, potassium, magnesium, zinc, copper, calcium, sodium, iron and chromium. Along with these nutrients are many body-healthy vitamins such as niacin, folic acid, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and B12 plus, vitamin C and E. That is a lot of nutrients for such an unpretentious looking plant to have!

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Aloe Vera UsesAloe Body Cream Recipe: Aloe Vera Uses

What can Aloe Vera be used for? Well, there are many uses for this plant! Most know that it is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. The range for medical treatment has widened profoundly in the past ten years. Since it has been developed into a capsule form, Aloe can be used to help treat respiratory disorders such as bronchitis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, or hepatitis. Studies have been done on how Aloe Vera can even be used as a possible treatment for breast cancer!

Topically, Aloe Vera is amazing! Since it is best known for is skin care properties, you can find aloe in all types of bath and body products. It’s rich nutrients and vitamins are perfect to help keep your skin healthy and glowing! Since it is an anti-inflammatory and an anti-fungal, it is perfect for those who suffer from acne or psoriasis. Aloe can even make the skin firmer as well as keeping it hydrated and reducing any wrinkles or fine lines.

Another amazing benefit Aloe Vera has to offer: it is also wonderful to use in hair products. It can help control frizz, add luster and strength to the hair. It also works as a great rinse for oily hair. Aloe is also good to help prevent dandruff or by rejuvenating the hair follicles which helps reduce hair loss.

One last thing before we get started on our recipe: Nature’s Garden sells Aloe Vera Powder for external use only. We do not sell it as a food item. The information above is for educational purposes only and is not to be used as medical advice. Now let’s talk about some of the ingredients we will be using in the lotion!

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Fractionated Coconut OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Fractionated Coconut Oil

This lovely oil looks different from the regular Coconut Oil, it has the same benefits.

  • Distilled Water
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stainless Steel Spoon
  • Stovetop
  • (2) Pots
  • Stick Blender
  • Scale

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

  • 706 grams of Distilled Water
  • 80 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 36 grams Argan Oil
  • 48 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax
  • 20 grams Mango Butter
  • 16 grams Stearic Acid
  • 10 grams Vitamin E Oil
  • 14 grams Optiphen Preservative
  • 12 grams Orchid Rain Fragrance Oil
  • 25 grams Aloe Leaf Powder

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on preparing your lotion, it’s always best to take a moment to prep your work area. Go ahead and clean and sanitize your work area, equipment and packaging supplies. Also, have your ingredients at an easy reach. This will help streamline your process of making the lotion without having any interruptions. Also, always use cooking equipment that is no longer used for cooking.

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Water Phase

Making any type of body butter, lotion or cream is done in four phases. The first phase is the water phase. You will be preparing your water. We suggest using distilled water. So using a pot that you no longer will be using for food, weigh out 850 grams of distilled water. While you will not need quite this much, some of the water will evaporate. It is always better to have too much water than not enough. Place the pot of water on your stove top. Now heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to keep the water at this temperature for 20 minutes. This ensures that the heat will destroy any bacteria that may be in the water.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Aloe Leaf Powder

While you are waiting for the water to heat up, you can prepare the aloe leaf powder. Go ahead and take a tea bag. Add in the 25 grams of the Aloe Leaf Powder.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Aloe Leaf PowderAloe Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Aloe Leaf Powder

Next, when your water has reached the correct temperature and has been held for the 20 minutes, go ahead and remove the pot from the stove. In a bowl, weigh out 706 grams of the distilled water and add the aloe tea bag to it. You can go ahead and set this bowl aside for the time being. Your water will turn a shade similar to Apple Cider Vinegar.

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Oil Phase

The next phase is the Oil Phase. We will be using the double boiler method for this step. Have 2 pots ready to use. One pot should be able to fit into a larger pot. In the small pot, go ahead and weigh out all the following ingredients: 36 grams Argan Oil, 80 grams of Fractionated Coconut Oil, 16 grams of Stearic Acid, 48 grams of Silky Emulsifying Wax and 20 grams of Mango Butter.

To the second pot, add just a few inches worth of tap water and place it on your stove top. Turn your heat to medium and place the smaller pot inside the larger pot. Next, you will heat the oils and butter to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally until all the ingredients are melted. Once these ingredients have reached the correct temperature, you can remove the smaller pot from the double boiler and turn off your heat. 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Mixing PhaseAloe Body Cream Recipe: The Mixing Phase

Before you get started on the third phase, the mixing phase, you will want to make sure the distilled water you heated earlier is at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Both the water and the oils need to be at the same temperature before you start mixing. If your water has cooled too much go ahead and heat it back to 140 degrees. (Before you combine the ingredients together, you can remove the aloe tea bag from the water.) So once both water and oils are at the same temperature, add them both to a large deep mixing bowl. Next, you will take your stick blender and mix the ingredients together. As you are mixing, you will notice that the mixture is turning white in color. This simply means that your lotion is starting to emulsify

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Cool Down PhaseAloe Body Cream Recipe: The Cool Down Phase

Now you need to check the temperature of the mixture. It should be cooled to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Since you will be adding the Optiphen in, the temperature needs to be below 140 degrees. If Optiphen is added at too high a temperature, the preserving qualities of the preservative may be destroyed.  Now once the temperature of the cream has cooled to the 120 degrees, you can now weigh in 14 grams of Optiphen, 10 grams of vitamin E and 12 grams of Orchid Rain fragrance oil. Then, once again using your stick blender, mix these additions into your emulsified water and oil mixture.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Packaging Up Your ProductAloe Body Cream Recipe: Packaging Up Your Product

As the cream is cooling, stick blend occasionally to ensure that it is emulsifying properly. Also, as your lotion cools, it will thicken up. Finally, after your cream has cooled and reached room temperature, you can place the cream in your jars and place the lids on top! This recipe makes five 8 ounce jars of body cream!

So, let’s lets talk about your lotion making supplies and see what you need for a homemade lotion recipe!

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Easy DIY Lotion Recipes

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: How to Make Lotion from Scratch

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. Since oils are non-polar, they only want to mix with other non-polar substances. But, we want these non-polar oils to mix with polar water. Similarly, polar water only wants to mix with other polar things. So, we need an ingredient that has both polar and non-polar parts, which is what we call an emulsifier! As you can see this single ingredient is quite crucial.

Another important ingredient for home made lotion making is the thickener. While some recipes will be just fine without one, others really need a thickener. But, it is all about the consistency that you prefer. If you are looking to make a butter or cream, then you will want something thicker. Or, your batch may just light lotion that doesn’t require a thickener like stearic acid or sodium lactate. It is all dependent upon the type of lotion you are creating.

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Stearic AcidHow Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Stearic Acid

Since Stearic Acid is a thickener, it can be used in lotions to create a more creamy, luxurious lotion. This is useful for recipes that are nearly perfect but are a little too runny. We recommend that you add no more than 3% of this ingredient in your overall recipe.

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Sodium Lactate

Depending on your needs you may prefer one these over the other.

So, you can combine one of these cosmetic ingredients with your butters and oils to create the perfect lotion recipe that will nourish and moisturize your skin!

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Vegetable GlycerinHow Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Vegetable Glycerin

You can use Vegetable Glycerin in your recipes to add some extra moisture to your skin. This ingredient is clear, odorless, and has a syrup consistency. Plus, it is soluble in water.

Fragrance oils are great, but you can’t use whatever amount you want. In fact, each fragrance can only be used in a certain amount to be considered body safe. The highest amount we will ever recommend will be 5%, but the IFRA sheet may allow more depending on the scent. However, there are some scents that may use less than 5%.

Another important ingredient for homemade lotion is Optiphen Preservative. This will allow you to keep your lotion for longer, as it will kill germs and prevent bacteria growth. So, this is crucial for anyone selling or storing their product. But, anyone using this for their own products will still benefit as this ingredient will expand the lifespan of your product. While you can add this to your lotion recipes made from scratch, Germall Plus is already in the multi lotion base lotion and soy body butter. So, you do not need to add a preservative to the pre-made lotion bases.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion RecipeShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe

While gorgeous, sun-kissed skin is sought after by so many of us, it can be dangerous trying to get your skin the perfect color. If you frequent tanning beds or lay out in the sun for too long, then you’re putting your skin at a higher risk of skin cancer. This is due to the excess exposure to the UV light, which is why too much sun can actually become a bad thing. Plus, there are some people that just can’t ever tan. Personally, I fall into this category. No matter how much sun I get, I never can tan. My skin goes from pale, sunburnt, and right back to pale. So frustrating! But, a good bronzing lotion can be a used as a perfect solution to both these problems. These lotions help provide a light, golden color without any damaging UV light. So, we at Natures Garden decided to create the Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe.

This herb is a perfect colorant for a bronzer, as the cocoa powder is a shade that doesn’t leave you looking orange. Furthermore, this homemade bronzing lotion has all the skin nourishing benefits of regular lotion recipes.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Preparing Your Equipment and Work Space

Before you begin creating your homemade lotion recipe, there are a few things that you may want to do to prepare. These preparations will make the process easier and even make it quicker. First, you will want to clean your equipment and supplies for this recipe, which makes sure that everything is ready for you to use. Also, you may want to clean and wipe down your work space. This will make sure that you have enough room to work on your lotion. Also, we suggest that you wear a pair of gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe. After everything is clean and ready, its time to start creating this lovely lotion recipe.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Preparing the Water

First, you are going to want to prepare the water for your lotion recipe. So, you will need to add some distilled water to your stove pot. 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.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Natural BronzerShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Natural Bronzer

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.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

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.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Clean and Sanitize

It is imperative that you make sure your equipment and work area are clean and ready to use. First, make sure all the supplies that you will be using are sanitized and nearby for you to use when needed. Also, you should sanitize the area you will be working on, including the stove top. This way you will have a more pleasurable experience making your body butter and prevent any possible contamination of your finished product.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Creating a Double Boiler

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Creating a Double BoilerBefore you get into creating your lotion you will need to create a double boiler. Now, take your large pot and add water. You will need to add several inches. You will want enough water in the large pot to touch the bottom of the small pot. Begin heating the water on your stove top over medium heat. I should mention, you will want to make sure that you don’t have too much water in your large pot. If you have too much water in the pot, then you may have some water get into your oils. Make sure you keep an eye on the water level as you melt your oils and butters. Later, you will set the small pot into the large pot to melt your oils and butters.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Weighing Out Your Ingredients for Melting

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Weighing Out Your Ingredients for MeltingFirst, we are going to weigh out some of our ingredients. Take your scale and tare the weight of a medium-sized mixing bowl. You will need your Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Grapeseed Oil, and Apricot Kernel Oil. Weigh out and add 156 grams of the Cocoa Butter and 155 grams of the Shea Butter to your bowl. Next, weigh and add 24 grams of the Grapeseed Oil and 65 grams of the Apricot Kernel Oil to the same bowl. Set this mixture aside for now.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Melting Your Ingredients

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Melting Your IngredientsNext, you are going to melt the ingredients that you prepared in the previous step. You will need to use the double boiler you began creating earlier to melt your oils and butters.  Melting them in your double boiler will prevent scorching of the oils.  So, place your weighed out ingredients into your smaller pot.  Then, place the smaller pot into the larger pot.  Melt the mixture fully before moving to the next step.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Adding the Remaining Ingredients

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Adding the Remaining IngredientsNow, you are going to add your few remaining ingredients to the mixture. After your butters and oils are completely melted, pour the mixture back into your medium sized bowl. Then, you can add in your Vitamin E Oil and the Black Raspberry Fragrance Oil. So, tare the weight of the filled bowl on your scale. Next, add 4 grams of the Vitamin E Oil and 10 grams of the Black Raspberry Fragrance Oil to your bowl of melted butters and oils.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Cooling the Mixture

Then, you will be cooling your mixture to get it to thicken. There are two possibilities for you to do this step. The first option is that you could place the medium sized mixing bowl into a bowl full of ice. Alternatively, you could place the covered bowl into the fridge.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Whipping the Mixture

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Whipping the MixtureNext, you are going to whip your mixture into a body butter. After your mixture of oils and butters was cooled for 20 minutes you are going to remove it from the fridge, or ice and mix it. So, retrieve your cooled mixture and use the hand mixer for a few minutes. Then, place the bowl back in the fridge or the ice bath for 20 more minutes. Repeat these steps until your mixture looks white and as creamy as whipped butter. Also, this will take a few cooling and mixing cycles until this point is reached.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Packaging Your Body Butter

Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Butter Kit Packaging Your Body ButterFinally, you can fill your jars with the finished body butter. Now, open your four jars to get ready. Take your metal spoon and start scooping the body butter into the jars. Be sure to pack the body butter in well and avoid the possible air bubbles.
