First time making lotion
It was my first time making lotion and was very please with the generous amounts of supplies sent. I had no trouble following the recipe until I got to the preservative and essential oil. I weighed everything in ozs but my scale does not measure .2 Oz. I scrambled to try to convert ozs to grams or even drops and I am not sure if I put enough in. I measured the Ty phenonip and lavender in a tiny plastic OXO brand 2 oz container. First I measured the phenonip and added it and then without washing measured the lavender In the same tiny 2 oz cup. I am not sure what kind of reaction occurred but the container is white and has some sort of scum inside that followed the flow of the liquids almost like it tried to melt. I am now worried about the lotion and I will probably toss. I was going to give for Christmas presence. I wonder if the phenonip , essential oil reacted and melted the plastic. I had already poured the lotion in the bottles and noticed when I went to wash everything.

Hi JoAnn! I'm glad you like this kit! Undiluted essential oils can melt plastic. We recommend keeping your essential and fragrance oils in glass containers. You can read more in the Undiluted Aroma Oils + Plastic Don't Mix post. However, once the correct usage rate of essential oil is diluted in your lotion, it is perfectly skin safe! Also, if your scale doesn't measure .2 oz, you can convert it to mL and use our droppers for precise measuring. It looks like .2 oz is about 6 mL. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Good Lotion but not very nice feeling
Hi, this was my first time making this lotion and i enjoyed it quite a bit, i found the directions very easy to follow, the video was very well done and easy to follow as well but the product itself was not to my satisfaction. The lotion makes my skin very dry, i don't know why but it does, i don't have dry skin at all but i enjoy a good lotion if that make sense, even the cheapest lotion i have ever bought does not let my skin feeling this weird. i followed all the directions to the T, the lotion is of good consistency, smells OK because the fragrances were not that great either, i bottled them without any problem, they look very nice inside the bottle but my skin feels horrible and very dry which i think is the opposite effect when using a lotion :-) For the amount of money paid for the kit, which it was not so expensive but i think you get what you pay for, this is not a very nice lotion, but it looks very nice inside the bottles :-)

Hi Carmen! I'm glad you like the kit! In our tests and recipes, we've found this lotion is very moisturizing for your skin. However, if too much preservative or fragrnace is added, it can cause a dry feeling on your skin. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

Not enough info included
Let me begin by saying I am a Beginner and I have been learning a lot of things through this website. Bramble Berry rarely lets me down, but the information included on the item description and in the package may have missed the mark or maybe my expectations were too high. I expected more specific instructions or a video or a link to another blog for added assistance in making it, describing how many parts of each fragrance to add (to make up the total), disinfecting, pouring, etc - but I found none. Also as Ginny mentioned in an earlier post, the way the bottles need to be disinfected does not jive with my prior knowledge. I was reluctant to disinfect the bottles the way the booklet says because it says to put them in water over 150 degrees. I never subject plastic containers to anything above 135 degrees (max) because from prior experience it warps/melts/ruins them. So I am now researching how to disinfect the plastic bottles before I begin making this lotion.

Hi Hope! I'm sorry this kit wasn't your favorite. The booklet says to bring your tools to 150F if you use well water, but it is not necessary for distilled water. You can also use a bleach solution to disinfect your equipment. To do so, you add 1 oz. of bleach to 1 gallon of water and dunk your equipment in. You may like this How to Make Lotion From Scratch Soap Queen TV episode. It has information about preservatives, ingredients, and step-by-step instructions on making lotion. I'll be emailing you personally to help resolve this issue!
