  • Put on your safety goggles & neoprene gloves, combine your sodium hydroxide & your liquid, stir completely. Set the lye aside and allow it to cool between 100 - 125 degrees.
  • Combine your oils & heat. Temperature of oils needs to be between 100 - 125 degrees. If you are coloring your soap, add it to your oils at this time.
  • When both your lye & your oils are at approximately the same temperature (100 - 125 degrees) you need to combine them. Use precautions to avoid splashing.
  • Stir until the mixture traces. (You can use your stick blender to speed up this process).

Basic Lotion Making Directions.
Combine your distilled water, emulsifying wax, stearic acid, citric acid into an 87 oz bucket & heat in microwave until all waxes & citric are completely dissolved. Weigh out your oils & butters in a seperate 87 oz bucket. Combine the contents of the two buckets & stir with a stick blender until you have reached a complete emulsion. Add your germaben II and fragrance oils and stir again, then pour into your containers. If your lotion is too thick to pour into bottles, warm it for a few seconds to slightly thin it out.

Periodically shake containers over the next 45 min while lotion stiffens. If you are making a cream & putting into jars, allow the cream to completely set up prior to transfering to jars.

Begin stirring the melted mixture in container #1 with your stick blender while slowly adding in the water and glycerin from container #2. You will need to continue blending the mixture with your stick blender for about 10 minutes (give your blender a few seconds to cool down within the 10 minute time alloted, otherwise you may burn up your motor). When you see the butter start to thicken add in your germaben II, (optional) and your color and fragrance oil. Blend these all together so that you have a very smooth and consistent whipped body butter. Transfer the finished body butter into the jars of your choice.

Bath Fizzie Recipes:(for bath fizzies and salt recipes only, print pages 14- 17).

  2.4 oz wt cornstarch
  8 oz wt baking soda
  3.6 oz wt coconut Oil
  0.2 fl oz essential or fragrance Oil
Makes approx. 12 ice cream scoop size balls.

Add your fragrance or essential oils. Make ice cream scoop size balls and place in small cupcake papers. Let the balls dry for about 24 hours, and then store in an airtight container to keep fragrance from dissipating.

Milk Bath Fizzers (from our "Home Spa Retreat".)
  1 tbsp powder milk
  1/2 cup baking soda
  1/4 cup corn starch
  1/2 cup citric acid
  1.5 ounces distilled water
  15 drops or ml favorite fragrance oil or essential oil
***You will need to put your water in a spray bottle.
Mix together all of your dry ingredients. Using your water, spritz your mixture lightly(avoid adding too much water at one time, this will cause your mix to fizz.) Continue misting the mixture w/ water while you stir until all the water is gone. Add your fragrance or essential oil and stir making sure that you have a consistant blend. Your mixture may appear dry, but if you can pick up a handful and mold it together then it is the right consistency. Press your mixture into the bottom of a mold (we used a drawer organizer 9" x 6" x 2"). Your mixture will not completely fill the mold to its top- do not worry you are doing it right. Now let the fizzer blend harden over the next 4-8 hours. Then take something and chip out the fizzers so you have a bunch of random sized chunks. We had enough to fill 2 of our 8 oz clear PET jars and 1 of the 4 oz PET jars. (if you want to color your fizzers use approx. 1/2 of our .15 cc scoops of any of the dyes. Add the dry color to your water.)

Using an Immersion/Stick Blender in Making Cold Process Soap:
The amount of time it takes for your soap to trace will depend on the following:

Combine your oils with your lye solution while stirring by hand. Put your immersion/stick blender in the soap mixture and turn it on to a low setting for approximately 2 minutes. If your soap has not shown any signs of trace, turn off your immersion/stick blender and stir by hand for a minute. Repeat the above steps until your trace stays even, while stirring by hand. Then you are ready to pour the soap into your molds.

Instructions: for using and immersion/stick blender in lotion making:
When making a lotion recipe you will need to follow the steps that are given for that specific recipe. However, when the recipe instructs you to combine or stir your oils and ingredients you can use your immersion/stick blender to accomplish a quick, consistent blend that takes a lot less tie than stirring by hand.
