Wait a minute! How do I determine how much fragrance oil and polysorbate I need? That is an easy question.
For today’s post, I’m using a 2 oz PET Bottle, Size 20 (101-1141). We need to simply move the decimal point from behind the 2 to in front of the 2 to get 10 % of the entire bottle.
Example: 2.0 —- 0.20 = 10% of 2 fl oz
Divide the 10% in half for the needed 5% of fragrance oil and the other 5% of Polysorbate. Weigh the needed amount of fragrance oil and Polysorbate, and then fill the bottles. Once the bottles have been filled with the needed amount of our fragrance and Polysorbate mixture, you can add the water.
Wow! That was amazingly easy! Tomorrow we are going to cover making perfumes and body mists, so stay tuned! (Wait! I’m not a radio announcer, so what am I doing?)
Next week is our Bath Tub Pleasure Week! Bath Fizzies for the kids and the kids at heart, bath oils for those leisurely evening baths, and bubble bath for bubbly entertainment! Wow! This is going to be so much fun!
