Aloe lotion parfait

I love this lotion as gifts. I use Baggie to color and scent, then insert a cookie decorating end piece in Baggie and cut off a small corner of the Baggie. I put the brambleberry bottle onto a tile that has a piece of earthquake "clay" on it so that bottle doesn't move and insert the cookie decorating end in bottle and squeeze the bag. I made several of these as Xmas gifts and had some left over. The bottle in my shower used the same scent, but was pink. I squeezed in the leftover "yellow colored" lotion. It looks like a parfait to eat and is still striped. Lovely. Will make some future got in stripes to match some soaps. Fun.

adding oils to aloe lotion base

I love this product! Recently I was asked to make lotion with hemp seed oil. I saw the same questions in the reviews but not the answer. What percentage of oil? And do you heat it to a certain temp? I'd really appreciate a response.

Hi Shari! I'm so glad you love our Aloe Lotion Base! All of our Bramble Berry lotion bases, including this one, have been formulated to accept up to about 5% of additional oils, extracts, or fragrances by weight, including small amounts of silicones like Cyclomethicone. The easiest way to add in oils is to bring a measured amount of your lotion base up to about 110-130°F until it begins to liquefy (almost like a melted mixture). Add the calculated amount of "extras" then stick blend until smooth. Finally, pour into bottles and let sit, uncapped, for 24 hours.

Wonderful base

To be clear, this product description states it is sold by volume. To other reviewers who want to insult BB's integrity, please read the description. I love how easy it is to create a small batch of lotion in whatever scent inspires me that day.

Excellent product but can I make it thicker?

I love using the aloe lotion base as aftershave but I'd like to make it a little thicker. Can I add a little Shea Body Butter or Beeswax Lotion Base to thicken it?

I'm not sure how much this base will be able to be thickened but if you want to give it a try I would start with a hard butter, like Cocoa Butter.

crafter

It absorbs very quickly into the skin leaving a very light slippery smoothness to it. I make my lotions from scratch, never used a base before but wanted to try them out to see if I could save myself some time. All in all, its a pleasant lotion, very light and absorbs quickly. It leaves my hands smooth but not greasy, with a little bit of slip to them giving them the extra moisturizer they need.
