Pear-ly Spring Souffle

Spring is here! While this means that our weather can be warm in the afternoons and we use the air conditioners in our cars, the mornings are still chilly and require the use of the heaters in our cars. πŸ™‚ To help keep the skin moisturized with the varying temperatures, I formulated this light souffle to be enjoyed at any time of day.

While pears are actually my favorite fall time treat, I couldn’t resist using the Juicy Pear Fragrance Oil in this souffle. The fresh, crisp and green scent is reminiscent of spring in the high mountain valleys of Northern Utah. The chilly morning air, the scents of new plants growing, damp earth and so many more scents make up mornings here, but Juicy Pear mixes the sweet smell of pears with the of home. I think you will agree with me if you could smell mornings here! What do your mornings smell like?

Weigh all ingredients except the additives (Optiphen, Liquid Silk, Vitamin E Acetate, Orchid Extract, Pumpkin Seed Extract, Juicy Pear Fragrance Oil and color) 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 additives once the temperature drops enough that you don’t feel like you are burning your hands when moving the mixing bucket. Blend until completely mixed. Pour into jars and allow to cool completely. Cap the jars.

Notes: This recipe makes about 7 ounces of lotion. I made this recipe for our Spring Fling Swap that ended in March. This souffle is actually fluid enough that you could put it in lotion bottles with a disk top or pump. The

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
