Today I will tackle a few more of the requests from my mountain of requests for our Quick Gifts from Your Cupboard blog post! Let’s go take a gander at the recipes I’ve come up with!
Karen commented, “I rec’d a jar of cream made with your cream base. I love the feel, weight and texture (incredibly smooth). I want to make a body cream similar. Ideas?”
I think I have the formula for you! Since you have the Veggie Emulsifier, I adjusted the Rooibos Body Cream recipe for you. I have also given you the option of choosing your fixed oil so you can choose an oil out of your soaping cupboard that you enjoy on your skin.
18% Sunflower Oil or Apricot Kernel Oil or Avocado Oil
7% Veggie Emulsifier
4% Stearic Acid
3% Hydrovance or Sodium Lactate
2% Shea Butter, Refined
0.5% Liquid Germall Plus
0.5% Fragrance of Choice
Anne wrote, “I’d like to see a minty foot cream recipe.”
Based on the e-mails that Anne and I passed back and forth, I’ve come up with one recipe that I think will meet her requirements. This is more of a foot salve, and not very greasy if used in small amounts. This is a recipe that would be best put in small jars as a little will go a long way!
32% HMP Shea Butter
30% Aloe Butter
10% Soy Wax
8% Cherry Oil
5% Anhydrous Lanolin
2% Black Currant Oil
1% Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil
8% Calendula Extract
2% Orchid Extract
1.5% Chamomile Extract
0.5% Peppermint Essential Oil
I have still more formulas that I’m working on! If there is something you would like help with, please feel free to send us a message through the Contact Us page! I’m having fun with all the formulas!
Can’t wait to make this! My stuff should be arriving soon.
My box arrived yesterday and we made two body creams today. I love the light feel; it is SO nice. Thanks for the recipe. I have really enjoyed the “request” series and saved all the info.
I’m glad to hear this!
