A Lavender Fleur Body Cream Valentine Gift

A Lavender Fleur Body Cream Valentine Gift

After making the Strawberries & Champagne lotion yesterday, I decided that one little gift for the ladies wasn’t enough. To mix up the scent options, I dug through the blog fragrance collection and found a bottle of Lavender Fleur. I discovered that it brought back some great memories!

Did you know that two of my first blog projects in 2009 featured this fragrance? If you want to take a ride with me back, you can read about Foaming Fruity Layers Part 2 and Valentine Soaps. I decided to reevaluate my original opinion of this fragrance and make something new. (I wasn’t fond of it at all back then!)

I think I’m now in love with Lavender Fleur! It’s a lovely blend of fresh lavender blooms and green cucumber with a twist of orange and a hint of white lily. This concotion is calming to the soul and a perfect treat. I can’t help but think that this would be perfect as part of a specialty line of spa type products!

Q.S. means quantity sufficient. I added a few drops of premixed color until I felt there was enough color to give the body cream a pretty pink tint. To get my premixed colors, I mixed 1/2 tsp of dry dyes with 1 fl oz of water to get my pink/red and blue colors. I used approximately 3-4 drops of the liquid Purple Raspberry color and 4-5 drops of the liquid Grape color to achieve my purple tinted lotion.

Are you ready to get started? Open the pail of Body Cream Base. Add the fragrance. (This is about half of a 1 fl oz bottle and is considered a light usage rate.) Using a large spoon or spatula, stir in the fragrance. To help make sure it has been mixed well, I add a few drops of color to help color the base. Stir well. You will know that you are finished when there aren’t any more white spots!

Fill your desired containers. I love using disposable pastry bags that are filled with the mixed lotion and then filling my jars. It keeps the mess to a minimum and speeds up the filling process.

What projects are you working on for Valentine’s Day? We’d love to see what you are mixing up!
