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!

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.

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.

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.
