How To Make Bath & Body Products
Bath & Body products are very popular and easy to make! They are great to use in gift baskets by themselves, or with matching candle products!

You Will Need:

Hand & Body Lotion, Protein Hair Conditioner


  1. Add 1/2 to 1oz. of Lotion safe fragrance oil to 1 gallon of base.
  2. Add liquid Bath & Body dye in drops until desired color is achieved. Stir thouroughly.
Since lotion is so thick, you may need to heat the lotion slightly (set jug in sink of hot water, keep under 100 degrees) to aid in pouring if using a funnel. It will thicken back up once it cools. Or you can use a cake decorator squeeze funnel, or a ziplock bag with a corner cut off if pouring cold. If making full gallon batches, our gallon pumps are the easiest way to fill bottles.

*Tip: Make a soy lotion by adding just 1/2 to 1 oz of soybean oil to a gallon of lotion base!

Aloe Hair & Body Wash, Bubble Bath, Liquid Hand Soap


  1. Add 1/2 to no more than 1oz. of soap safe fragrance oil to 1 gallon of base.
  2. Add liquid Bath & Body dye in drops until desired color is achieved. Stir thouroughly but gently.
  3. Pour into bottles with a funnel, or use our gallon jug pump.
*Caution: Heating or adding too much fragrance oil can cause gel to become thinner! Some fragrance oils can cause clouding in clear liquid bases. Always make a small test batch to determine which fragrances work well in each formula.

Hair & Body Protein Mist


  1. Add 1/4 to no more than 1/2oz. of lotion safe fragrance oil to 1 gallon of base.
  2. Add liquid Bath & Body dye in drops until desired color is achieved. Stir thouroughly.
  3. Pour into bottles with a funnel.
Shake well before using!
This product has a milky appearance so clouding is not an issue.
*Caution: Adding more than the recommended amount of fragrance oil may cause seperation.

Lip & Body Balm


Lip Balm:
  1. Just melt the base in the microwave on a low setting until it liquefies completely.
  2. Add your flavor oil (not fragrance oil!) and stir well (amount depends on manufacturer, average use is 3-6% or 1/2 to 1oz per pound). Sweetner is optional with non-sweetened flavor oils or essential oils (our Kiss Kwenchers flavor oils are pre-sweetened for you).
  3. Pour into lip balm tubes, tins or pots, and allow to harden.
Lotion Bars:
  1. Just melt the base same as above, and add approx. 1 oz. of a lotion safe fragrance oil per pound of base, and stir well.
  2. Pour into soap bar mold or into push-up sticks and allow to harden.
This base can also be whipped and packaged in jars or tins as a body butter or balm.
