Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need: Deep Mixing Bowl, Small Mixing Dish, Mixing Spoon, Scale, Distilled Water, Funnel, Hand Mixer
In a mixing bowl, weigh out 525 grams Ritzy Bath Gel.
To your mixing bowl, add the Tropical Rendezvous Fragrance Oil and Da Bomb Soap Dye. Slowly stir to blend the ingredients together.
Prepare your Xanthum Gum slurry. In your second empty small mixing bowl, add 2 grams of Xanthum Gum with 55 grams of room temperature distilled water. Using your hand mixer blend the ingredients. Xanthum gum can clump up, so it is important that you mix it into the water thoroughly. It will turn to a gel consistency.
Next, add a small amount of the Xanthum Gum slurry to your shampoo. The amount that you will add will depend on how thick you would like the shampoo to be. We added about 4 teaspoons of the slurry to ours. However, some may prefer a thicker consistency. So, we created enough slurry in this recipe to allow for that. We recommend adding a small amount first and mixing it in with your mixing spoon. Then, slowly add more until you are happy with the consistency.
Next, you are ready to add the shampoo to your bottles. Place a funnel on your first bottle and fill the bottle. Keep in mind you will be adding a pump so leave room for the dip tube. You want to stop pouring right about where the bottle begins to change shape. Repeat this process to fill your second bottle.
Finally, you will need the lotion pumps. Using scissors, trim each tube to fit the length of the bottles. Place a pump on each bottle.
