2009 Stocking Stuffer: Lotion

Did you get your 2009 Stocking Stuffer Kit yet? Yes, it comes with the label template to print out the labels below on your own printer. Make professional-looking candles, lotions and salt scrubs for your friends, family and co-workers and it couldn't be easier! The hardest part will be choosing between our Sweet Kit and our Spice Kit. Check out the Tuesday's post with the salt scrub recipe and Wednesday's post with the candle recipe.

Picture 593This lotion is easy to make as-is but our tips will make it even easier. To start, pour 16 oz. of Beeswax Lotion Base into a large plastic baggie and drop in 2 ml of Fragrance Oil. You have to really shake the bottle to get all the lotion out but even then, some is left in the bottle no matter how hard you shake. Seal the plastic baggie and mush it around with your hands to combine the ingredients. Once fully incorporated, snip off a small (small!) corner of the plastic bag and squeeze the lotion into the containers. Cap ‘em, label ‘em and give ‘em away!

My creationTip: If you want to split up the 2 fragrances between your lotion, just add 1 ml of fragrance oil to 8 ounces of lotion like we did. Works like a charm!
