Total Recipe Amounts:
16 ounces Soy Body Butter Multi-Base Lotion
48 ounces Distilled Water
1.25 ounces Cancan Type Fragrance Oil
0.5 ounces Argan Oil
4 tsp Diamond Dust Mica Pigment
4 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye- Blue
9 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye- Red

Clean and sanitize your workstation and all of your packaging materials and utensils. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, gloves, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
 
Step 1:  First, weigh out 48 ounces of distilled water.  If your water is not distilled, you will need to prepare your water. First, you will need to weigh out your water.  Make sure to include plenty of extra water so that you have at least 48 ounces when your water is finished heating as some of it will evaporate during heating.  Now, heat the water to at least 185 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the water hits this temperature, hold it there for a minimum of 5 minutes. Remove the water from the heat source and weigh out the 48 ounces.
 
Step 2:  Next, you will need to allow your water to cool.  Your water temperature should be around 100 degrees Fahrenheit when working with the multi-bases.  If the water is too hot, it can break down ingredients in the base itself.  
 
Step 3:  Once the water is at the proper temperature, add the entire container of the soy body butter base.  Then, using your stick blender, mix the ingredients together. As the mixture cools it will continue to thicken.
 
Step 4:  Finally, we will add the remaining ingredients to your lotion, add the Cancan Type Fragrance Oil, argan oil, Da Bomb Soap Dyes, and Diamond Dust Mica.  Once again, mix the lotion to incorporate all of the ingredients.
 
Step 5:  Once your lotion has cooled, place it in the 8 ounce clear bottles.  You can use a funnel to do this, or even a Ziploc bag with a hole cut in the corner to act as a spout.  Once filled, place a white disc lid on each bottle.
 
Step 6:  Now, you can decorate your bottle.  Cut bling ribbon to the size of the circumference of your bottle.  Then, use a hot glue gun to adhere the ribbon. Lastly, glue a pink acrylic rhinestone to the center of the ribbon.
 
Your soy lotion is now ready to use!
