Remarkably Wicked Body Cream 2


Cooled cream on my finger

As October approaches, I am finding that lunch conversations here at the office are revolving around fall and more specifically, Halloween. They are planning costumes for kids, themselves and spouses. They talk about decorations they have planned and some of their favorite candies to have. Let me tell you, our team has some great ideas. All of their planning has been infectious so today I wanted to make a body cream that was part of the Halloween Spirit. Come join me!

Weighing Waxes

Weighing Waxes

This cream rather fluid. It is easily rubbed into the skin, making it prefect as an every day cream. It isn’t greasy or heavy. Rather it leaves the skin feeling soft and dewy. This light cream is perfect for the office because it doesn’t make the skin greasy, allowing me to handle papers right after I apply it. It even handles the dry skin on my knuckles with ease. Wow! I think I want a big jar all to myself!

Adding Oils

Adding Oils

Weigh everything except the preservative and fragrance oil into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until everything is liquid. Using an immersion blender, mix the solution well. Allow it to cool to below 120° F before adding the Liquid Germall Plus and Wicked Fragrance Oil. Stir well. You want to make sure that the preservative is mixed into the lotion completely.

Scoop the lotion into a bag so you can pipe it into your jars. I find that using a bag saves me time, reduces clean up and prevents wasted product. Particularly when working with a lotion that is fluid like this one. Bags are a huge help! I highly recommend them.

Cap and label the jars of cooled lotion. Enjoy being Wicked!

I’m a twenty something happy, animal loving, curious experimenter. I love reaching back into history and trying old recipes for cosmetics or foods. I’m constantly asking “Why?” My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.
