    Ingredients:

      1.25 grams citric acid
      10 grams liquid glycerin
      10 grams stearic acid
      20 grams emulsifying wax
      75 grams sweet almond oil (or avocado oil, golden jojoba oil or any oil of choice)
      2.5 grams Freeze Dried Aloe Powder (100x)*
      375 grams water
      3.75 grams Germaben II
      2.5 grams Fragrance oil (we used Spicy Lime Fragrance Oil)

    Instructions:

    Combine all ingredients (except Germaben II and fragrance)in a microwave safe container. Heat until waxes are melted and can easily be mixed. Using an immersion blender, mix until all ingredients are emulsified.

    Add Germaben II and fragrance. Pour into containers.

    Notes & Comments:

    This lotion is very light. I will keep its shape somewhat but not for long periods of time. It is an easy recipe and can be completed in about 30 minutes. Makes 16 fluid ounces.

    Enjoy! Tina

    * If using the 200x strength of the Aloe powder cut this amount in half. The aloe powder can easily be omitted.
