Kailua Bay

June Swap Lotion


This formula was one I whipped up for all the devoted swap fanatics who joined me to swap soap in June. It was apparently well received, almost all of them have contacted me for the recipe, they want more. The lotion itself is a light, fast-absorbing formula scented with our new "Kailua Bay" fragrance oil. This scent is absolutely one of my very favorites, it sold out in the first two weeks we had it. One whiff and you'll be hopelessly addicted. No Kidding!

This was made on the blog on January 12th 2010.




Weigh all ingredients into a microwave-safe container except the Germaben II and your scent. Heat until oils and waxes have completely melted. Using your immersion (stick) blender, mix until you have created a creamy emulsion, it will resemble warm milk. Let this cool slightly, then carefully add Germaben and fragrance oil. Pour into desired containers and gently shake periodically as they cool to prevent separation from occurring.


This is a good base recipe and you can easily swap out the fragrance to add your own creative touch. Good Luck & Enjoy!


This recipe makes approximately 32 fl oz of cream.
