Foaming Hand Soap:  Make your own foamer!   This recipe makes enough foamer to fill one of our 6 oz. frosted foamer bottles.  You will need to adjust the recipe for larger batches.  Fill foamer bottle with 3/4 cup of Imagine Base.  Add 2ml-4ml body safe fragrance oil (easily done by using one of our transfer pipettes).  Add 4 drops of liquid soap dye

Rinse-Free Shampoo:  Imagine foaming base has been used in scented form as a Rinse-Free Shampoo in hospitals across America for many many years!  It helps to clean your hair, and does not leave your hair greasy-looking.  The following recipe makes enough rinse-free shampoo to fill our 8oz.

Shampoo/Body Wash:  This shampoo recipe is the kind of shampoo that will need to be rinsed out of your hair once it is used.  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 4 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 2 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Bath Gel:  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 6 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 4 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Bubble Bath:  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), Mica Pigment, and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 4 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye and 1/4 tsp. mica pigment mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 4 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.  The mica pigment allows your bubble bath to become more opaque.

Magic Potion Body Spray:  We have created a very neat product that we have not seen on the market yet:  A body spray that looks like gel in the bottle, but sprays onto the skin like regular body spray.  This is made possible by thickening our Imagine Base with xanthan gum.  Xanthan gum has a property called pseudoplasticity.  When the gel encounters high shear forces, such as agitation or spraying out of a bottle, the gel will thin out.  However, once the shear forces are removed, the product will gel up once again.  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 3 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 4 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Icy Glitz Shampoo/Bath Gel:  This shampoo recipe is the kind of shampoo that will need to be rinsed out of your hair once it is used. The addition of menthol crystals to this shampoo base allows for a cool, fresh feeling on your scalp and body!   For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Crushed Menthol Crystals.  Step One:  Create your cooling, thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 60 seconds, add 1/8 teaspoon of crushed menthol crystals.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 4 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Amazing Layered Bath Gel:  We created another product that we have never seen anywhere...Layered Bath Gel!  That's right, you can put numerous colors of bath gel in the same bottle!!!  This product provides skin hydrating, and a nice smooth glide for shaving.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 9 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Divide this mixture into a separate container for each color of bath gel you plan to make. Add 3 drops of soap dye of your choice to each container, mix by hand.    Allow completed mixtures to set up for about 30 minutes.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, divide 2-4 ml. of body safe fragrance amongst the containers, and mix by hand.  Pour mixtures, one by one,  into an 8 oz. bottle, layering the colors as you desire.  To create a Tye Dye look, gently agitate the 8 oz. bottle. 

Monster Snot Hand Soap for little boys: We created another product that we have never seen anywhere...Monster Snot Hand soap!  We think little boys, and grown-ups who refuse to grow up will love this stuff!   This product provides skin hydrating, and a nice smooth glide for shaving.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 8 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.   Add 3 drops of green soap dye to container, mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 2 ml. of body safe fragrance to the containers, and mix by hand.  Pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.

3.5 21 Imagine Base

Soap Frosting and Body Butter

3 Imagine Base

Reviewer: from Lynn, MA US

Just used the Imagine base. The body butter came out great. Lots of nice whip, my testers liked it better than the shea butter I make (with shea and fractionated coconut oil). The soap frosting is a nightmare. I whipped it and turned around to get the pastry bag to fill it and the frosting was already hard! Directions say to work fast but there is no way you can frost anything with this. Any suggestions to add something so it doesn't harden so quickly?

Solid Bubble Bath

5 Imagine Base

Reviewer: from Glenmont, NY US

I have always had issues with my solid bubble bath sweating glycerin, so I tried using this instead, and WOW! What a huge difference! My bubble bars came out so much better! I used: 1 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup cream of tartar, 1/2 cup SLSa, 1/8 cup Imagine base and just a half teaspoon of glycerin for pliability, scented with buttercream FO. It made (6) 2 ounce bars that I shaped into marshmallows.

This was a perfect sub for the glycerin! Love it and can't wait to make more stuff!

Loved the versatility

4 Imagine Base

Reviewer: from Minnesota US

I just made 5 items with this and so far the foaming soap works great, but the bubble bath didn't make many bubbles, and the few it did, dissappeared fast, but when I used the rest up on my daugher's hair, it lathered up nicely. She smelled great!

Wonderful product, but very drying to the skin...

2 Imagine Base

Reviewer: from Chicago, IL

Easy product to make (whipped body butter), however, tried the product on my skin & after 5 minutes, my skin felt tight & dry & looked ashy. Perhaps someone could recommend an additive to hydrate & moisturize the skin...would love to use the product as I think it's amazing...would give it 5 stars if I could reduce the "skin drying"...any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks!

Not good for bubble bath

3 Imagine Base

Reviewer: from Warren, CT US

Made bubble bath with this according to the recipe on the imagine base page. It does not work very well. There were no bubbles in the water. Sure, it smelled great, but what's a bubble bath without bubbles? I ordered some SLS to see if it helps to add it. I hope so. I hate to waste a gallon of this.
