Items needed to custom blend your own luxury shower gel:
* Don't forget to purchase some spout
caps for the larger bottles to work with or if you purchased
jug, to have a lotion
pump to work with as it will make it easier.
1 lb. shower
- ~1/4 to 1/2 oz. fragrance
oil (SOS Concentration) - You will need to adjust for Ultra Concentrate
(to ~1/6 to 1/8 oz.) or Extreme
Concentrate (to ~1/8 to 1/10 oz. or several squirts from an eye dropper)
- FD&C water based colorant (if desired)
- Hand towels (if needed)
- Polysorbate 20
Step 1: Slowly heat a medium to large sized pot
of water for double boiling (if you have a double boiler- then
use that instead).
Step 2: Fill the bottle(s) with shower gel .
Step 3: Put the bottle(s) in the pot and watch very
closely (this will thin the shower gel and make it more manageable).
Do not over boil, as the gel tends to bubble over. WATCH
THE SHOWER GEL CAREFULLY
Step 4: When the shower gel is thin, remove from water.
Step 5: Add your fragrance
oil (equal parts fragrance and equal parts polysorbate), and a couple drops of water based colorant as desired. The polysorbate will solve the emulsification issues, allow the mixture to remain clear and thick.
||1/4-1/2 oz. per lb.
||1/4-1/8 oz. per lb.
||1/8-1/16 oz. per lb.
REMEMBER: To also add the equivalent amount of polysorbate to aid the mixture.
Step 6: Put the cap on, and gently fold mix evenly.

of your body. Then gently rotate the bottle from left to right. DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE or you will get a massive
amount of bubbles and it may break down the consistency permanently.

gel will thicken. We sell HDPE
