|Everybody has a scent or two that brings fond memories to mind. Peach is one of the scents that triggers fond memories for me. Every fall, my family cans peaches and it usually takes an entire day to can enough peaches to last until the next fall. It is always a day filled with fun, giggles and the warm smell of peaches. Naturally, not all of the peaches make it into the jars as canning is always lots of work and makes us very hungry!
Sometimes the Peach Fragrance Oil alone can be too sweet and fruity when you don’t want to smell like a ripe peach. This is when the strong floral notes of Honeysuckle come out to play and tame the peach into a light scent perfect for a daily body lotion that doesn’t take all day to rub in! I hope you enjoy this Honeysuckle Peach Lotion as much as I do!
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients except Germaben II and fragrance oils into the microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add Germaben II and fragrance oils once the temperature drops below 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Blend until completely mixed. Pour into bottles and allow to cool completely. Cap the bottles.
Notes: This recipe makes approximately 65 fl oz of cream, so make sure you mix all of your ingredients in a container large enough for the whole batch. We don’t want to make any more messes than we already do!
This blend of 2 parts Peach Fragrance Oil to 1 part Honeysuckle Fragrance Oil will smell like a 50/50 blend of the fragrances. If you would like a stronger peach scent, you can increase to 3 or 4 parts of Peach Fragrance Oil.
Enjoy! Next week, we will make more lotion and some fun batches of soap, so stay tuned!
