Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Step 1: While we only need 425 grams of water for this recipe, you will want to prepare more as you will have some evaporation. Heat your water to 180F to destroy any bacteria. You will need to hold the temperature here for 20 minutes.
Step 2: While you are waiting, weigh out and melt your oils. Use a double boiler to melt the meadowfoam seed oil, mango butter, emulsifying wax, argan oil, and vitamin e oil.
Step 3: Back to the pot containing the water. Weigh out 425 grams of the water. Add the sodium lactate to this bowl. Mix well to incorporate.
Step 4: Next, when both your water and oils are around 140F use your stick blender to mix them. Make sure you mix very well. You will notice the mixture turn white in color as it emulsifies.
Step 5: Once the mixture drops to around 120 degrees add the optiphen preservative, yellow soap dye, and Dreama Fragrance Oil. Mix well. Please Note: You do not want to add the preservative below 120F degrees as it will separate.
Step 6: Allow the mixture to set up and come to room temperature. Then, place the lotion into your bullet bottles. Lastly, place a lid on top of the bottle.
Step 7: Now, use ribbon to decorate your bottle. Simply wrap the bottle with the ribbon and use a hot glue gun to hold it in place. Then, create a bow and hot glue it onto the bottle.
Your Dreama Scented Lotion is now ready to use! Enjoy!
