|I had such a great time with the Rose Hydrosol Lotion, I just had to make it with Jasmine Hydrosol. Jasmine is a scent that makes me think of spring and with the warm weather we were having, I am fighting a severe case of spring fever. Waho! Spring is on the way!
I have been wondering about the affects of Dry Flo in a lotion and decided to test it out. I have never used Dry Flo before so I decided not to change my formula except adding the Dry Flo. I wanted to be able to compare it to something I had made before and really determine how Dry Flo affected the texture of the finished lotion.
I made a test batch to test different percentages of Dry Flo. In that test batch I used water instead of a hydrosol, saving the hydrosol for the finished product. I tested a range of Dry Flo percentages to determine what was too much, too little and just right. (Goldilocks would be proud.) Then, I selected my favorite. Tomorrow, I will show you what I did, and the results of my test batches. This will allow you to test your own formulation in small amounts. In the mean time, come join me in the test kitchen to try this fabulous lotion! See you there!
Collect needed items:
Weigh all of the ingredients except Optiphen and the Dry Flo into a microwaveable container. Heat until all of the ingredients are melted. Using an immersion blender, mix until blended. Allow the solution to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the Optiphen and the Dry Flo. Stir occasionally while waiting for the mixture to cool. You do not want your lotion to separate. If you wish to add any color, now would be the time. Mix the preservative and Dry Flo into the lotion until well blended. Allow the lotion to cool to room temperature. You may now put the lotion into containers. The 500 gram batch is about 16 fl oz so you can make four 4 fl oz bottles, two 8 fl oz bottles or any variation you desire. Enjoy!
