Pear Lotion and Soap

I got an Anjou Pear sampler with my order I have also had a request for pear scented lotion so it worked out, I made a batch of lotion and a soap earlier and most of the sample is gone. I made a bit of the lotion as spiced pear by adding a few drops of bay rum. Tomorrow I will experiment with Pumpkin spice and Peppermint.

Mango Lotion

I made it a little bit thin side on accident, I believe my mistake was I originally used about 20 oz of distilled water and about 1.5 oz of mango butter and wasn’t paying enough attention. If I were to make it again I would do so as follows.

1.5 oz Almond Oil

.5 oz Avocado Oil

1 oz Sunflower Oil

2 oz Mango Butter

1.5 oz Emulsifying Wax

3 ml Jojoba Oil

10 drops Vitamin E

16-18 oz Distilled Water

3% Fresh Mango Fragrance

1% Preservative

 

Mix Almond, Avocado, Sunflower Oils in a double boiler with the Mango Butter and Emusifying Wax and melt clear. Remove from heat, pour into bowl, let oils cool slightly, add Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E. Heat Distilled Water in microwave and add to bowl slowly while whisking constantly until all water is added. Mix for several minutes to ensure  proper mixture of oil and water. Place bowl in fridgerator for five minutes to cool, wisk, then return to fridge for another five minutes.

Remove bowl from fridge and add Fragrance and Preservative, pour into containers while it is still warm, it will thicken up as it continues to cool.
