This week’s been focused on salty things. We did a salt scrub fragranced with Sea Salt Fragrance Oil, a Soleseife (salt brine) soap, and today we’ll do a salty scented lotion, again using Sea Salt Fragrance Oil.
The lotion will have water instead of salt, of course, and I’ll have to add an emulsifier and a preservative. Otherwise, the two formulas will be pretty much the same.
Join me in making this salty-scented lotion.
What You’ll Need
71% Distilled Water
12% Grapeseed Oil
8% Liquid Shea Oil
3% Emulsifying Wax
2% Squalane Oil
0.5% Liquid Germall Plus
0.5% Sea Salt Fragrance Oil
100-gram Test Batch
71 grams Distilled Water
8.52 ounces Distilled Water
Weigh all ingredients but preservative and fragrance oil into a microwave-safe container.
Heat using short time bursts of 30 seconds, stirring after every heating, until all components of the mixture have melted. Use a stick blender to blend until an emulsion is reached.
Allow the lotion to cool to below 120 degrees F before adding preservative and fragrance oil. Stick blend again to combine the preservative and fragrance.
Pour finished lotion into bottles, label, and enjoy. Leave the caps off the bottles until the lotion has cooled to room temperature to avoid condensation inside the bottle.
This smells so nice! I tried it after using the Sea Salt Scrub on my hands, and it was perfect! My hands felt like they’d had a day at the spa! Now if only I could do something about my super dry, cracked cuticles. Maybe next week I’ll make something to treat them to some moisture.
