What goes into making my lotion
Preparing to make lotion. Many steps are taken. I do glove find change them throughout the process.Today is the day I am making lavender lotion. I have taken a few pictures along the way. Every time I start by cleaning of one of my kitchen counter and my stove. I wash my surfaces then spray alcohol to sterilize. I let the alcohol air dry. Then comes the freezer paper I put on the counter and my stove. More sterilizing of all my tools. Once that is completed I then get my ingredients. I carefully measure of the each of the ingredients that needs to be melted. I put in my wax melter to start melting process. Once my ingredients is melting at at the temperature I need I keep it at that temperature for a time. Then the heat is turned off. It then cools to room temperature in a bowl I use for mixing. Then more measuring of the liquid ingredients. The ingredients will be added to the cooled ingredients and mixed with an emulsion blender. The liquid ingredients is added a little at a time. I continue blending it until it is the right consistency. Once I have it I then begin bottling the cream into glass jars.
