This luxurious body butter base is full of skin moisturizing oils such as shea, avocado, and rice bran. As if that wasn't enough, we also included calming chamomile extract and vitamin E for even more skin conditioning benefits! This body butter leaves skin hydrated, without a greasy feel.
Our creamy body butter base is unscented, uncolored, and waiting for your personal, customizing touch! As with any lotion base recommended fragrance usage rate is 1% - 2% or about 0.2 oz in 16 oz. of lotion.
We've packaged this base in a wide mouth container making it easy to scoop out and repackage. It is definitely too thick to use with a pump so we recommend a jar for packaging. We love how classy this body butter looks in our 8 oz glass bail jar or short 8 oz plastic bail jar.
To use this lotion base - Warm the lotion base to 130°F in a fully disinfected container (5% bleach water or rubbing alcohol will disinfect your mixing containers). The lotion base will become the consistency of a melted milkshake. Add your fragrance at the recommended usage rate (typically .1 ounces of fragrance per 16 ounces of lotion) and stir until fully incorporated. Pour carefully into your containers. Let the lotion sit until it is room temperature prior to putting the cap on. The preservative system in this lotion starts to degrade at 176 degrees. Please ensure your lotion gets no warmer than 130°F during the heating phase.

I am so happy I tried this! It worked amazing! I added some oils and essential Oils of Geranium Rose and a very very light touch of Electric Bubblegum Mica and OMG! sold both generous 8 oz containers it made in a day! Its a little too thick for my next lotion idea but it is still lovely, luxurious and NOT greasy at all! I also LOVE the Chamomile EXTRACT it makes everyones eyes light up. Dont ever stop making this!
Bought this a while ago and forgot I had it! Mixed it up with several different scents for Christmas gifts! Everyone loved it ! Lavender Grapefruit was the favorite!!!
Will reorder for sure!!! :)
I'm thrilled with this base. My face is sensitive to just about everything, and I was a little hesitant to try this on my face with the additional elements that allow customizing. But I have to say, straight from the jar I experienced absolutely no redness or itching, just lovely soft skin. My kids love it too, they think it smells like blueberries and who am I to argue? I am definitely getting the bigger jar next time, so worth it!
This is so easy to use and absorbs quickly into my skin. I've tried it with several different scents and they've all turned out wonderful. I'd like to try and color this, but am not sure what kind of pigments I should use.... also will this base go bad?
Tried this out, was absolutely amazing on its own, however the batch that I fragranced turned horribly rancid. One was with oatmeal, Milk & Honey, that one smelled rotten after a day, then another batch with lavender vanilla went bad after about 2 weeks. I also did some with the sweetened cranberry fo, and that one seems to be doing just fine.
