DIY Lotion with Easy Lotion Base

Creating lotions isn't always an easy task. We knew this when developing our Easy Lotion Base which is why we set out to create a simple, quality lotion base. Rich in Vitamin E and made using Sun Flower Oil, our Easy Lotion Base has a light velvety texture that leaves the skin feeling silky. Gabby shares with us some simple steps in making your own personal lotions.

The folks at Stephenson Personal Care invited me to try their Easy Lotion Base I was (as usual) thrilled to give it a whirl! Their Easy Lotion Base is made with sunflower oil and enriched with vitamin E, so it’s great for the skin and suitable for all skin types. It doesn’t require any thickening, flows smoothly out of a pump dispenser and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily or greasy.

The best part? You only need THREE ingredients to create a huge range of lotions!

YOU NEED:

  • Stephenson’s Easy Lotion Base
  • Soap Colorant
  • Fragrance Oils of your choice
  • Here’s how I made four different lotions with just Easy Lotion Base, fragrance oils, and liquid colorant.

First, scoop out your desired amount of Easy Lotion base and place it in a small mixing bowl before adding your fragrance oil. The amount of fragrance oil to add will depend on the oil you’re using; my fragrance oil called for five drops of oil per ounce of lotion base. Stephenson’s Easy Lotion Base can be blended with a range of additional oils and it holds a scent very well.

Next, toss in your colorant. I used a liquid colorant that I’ve used in the past to color melt-and-pour soap, but it seemed to work just fine for lotions as well. Check the packaging that your colorants come in to see if it will work with lotion base.

I made four different lotions from my base and gave each one a difference scents. I recommend Brambleberry.com for purchasing fragrance oils and lotion-friendly colorants, but they can be purchased from a number of different online retailers. I picked mine up from a local craft store.

And that’s all there is to it, friends!
