|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!

Does it make difference if a doubleboiler is use rather than a microwave. I prefer the doubleboiler
We use the microwave because it uses less energy and because it is convenient. We can typically use a microwave and have our ingredients completely melted in 1 or 2 minutes and when testing several recipes in an afternoon, time is everything. You can use the double-boiler if you prefer as there is nothing wrong with using this method. Have fun!
Quick question, I’ve been through well I think all of the recipes for lotion & to be honest I am really not sure which one to pick. I am trying to find one that is really close to vaseline total moisture conditioning body lotion & another one for my face which is close to Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer – Combination/Oily & so I’ve been told your supposed to used something overnight on your face as well. Well with all that being said I would really like to make my own with out all the crazy chemicals that are in the commercial stuff but would like to stick as close as possible. Any help would be fantastic 🙂
I am not familiar with the product you mention.
I would try one lotion, scale it down to make a small amount, and then give us your comments. This way we can help direct you to something more to your desires.
I am thinking about making this lotion. I make cream and soap quite often but I am looking for a lotion to make that provides a LOT of moisture for my skin and is beneficial in nourishing my skin as well… Would this be a good choice for me? I was also wanted to change up a few of the oils for oils I have already baught from your wonderful company. Please advise.
Depending on the oils you want to exchange, this could be a very nice lotion. I would use Hydrovance or Sodium Lactate as your humectant instead of Liquid Glycerin for a long term moisturizing feel. I hope this helps!
