Silken Linen or Body Powder This combination of ingredients make an excellent silky powder. 1/2 cup of arrowroot powder 1/4 cup of Kaolin Clay 1/4 cup of Corn Starch 15 drops of Fragrance or Essential oil Combine all ingredients and add fragrance to preference. If you are making this as a body powder, you can use a small bit of pink clay to add just a touch of color.
Edible powder Here is a recipe using vanilla and honey powder. 1 cup cornstarch 2 cups of arrowroot powder 2 tb. vanilla powder 3 tb. honey powder Arrowroot Powder: The arrowroot plant tubers are dried, powdered and filtered. Arrowroot can be used as a thickener in cooking and it can be used interchangeably with Cornstarch. What makes Arrowroot good for body and linen powders is the look it gives to the other ingredients. Body powder made with arrowroot almost glows white, a wonderful look. An interesting note, Arrowroot was used by the South American people to heal the wounds made by poison arrows.
Non Greasy Hand and Body Lotion 36 grams Jojoba Oil 36 grams of another light Oil (we use sweet almond) 8 grams of stearic acid 8 grams of glycerin 2 grams citric acid 20 grams emulsifying wax NF 450 grams distilled water fragrance or essential oil to preference 4 grams Germaben II Heat all of the ingredients except the Germaben II and the fragrance, in stages using the microwave. Try not to over heat the lotion, the hotter it is the longer it takes to emulsify. Heat until the emulsifying wax just melts. Let the lotion cool mixing occasionally with a hand blender. When the lotion has cooled add the Germaben II and the fragrance. If you add the Germaben II too early it will lose some of it's effectiveness due to the heat.
What the lotion ingredients are for: Light Oil: Our first assumption is that oil is the ingredient that moisturizes our skin. The real truth is that the water in lotion is the ingredient that adds moisture. The oil in lotion holds the moisture next to our skin. Think back to the commercial that put lotion onto a leaf. After a few minutes the leaf was soft and supple. Try that with oil Jojoba oil sinks into your skin very quickly, too quickly for lotion made with only jojoba oil to be able hold moisture to your skin for long. Jojoba oil is very similar to our bodies own natural oils. This makes Jojoba and excellent oil for lotions. Emulsifying wax surrounds the water molecule so that the oils will bind with the water Glycerin is a humicant. Humicants also help hold moisture to the skin. Vegetable Stearic Acid is a vegetable based thickener used extensively in lotions. Citric Acid moves the ph of the lotion closer to the natural ph of your skin. Germaben II. Lotion is an excellent medium for the growth of yeasts and bacteria. If no preservatives were used, lotions would only be safe for a matter of weeks. With natural preservatives you could extend that time a month or two. Germaben ll is one of the most effective and gentle preservatives. We use less than one percent of Germaben ll in our lotions.
Nancy's Blend This is a blend that I created for a friend of mine that has very bad arthritis in her hands. She wanted something that she could rub in after gardening or just generally a bad day. She has been using this for a few months and she says it does seem to help. Add this blend to 450 ml of your favorite oil and rub in. Lavender eo 15 ml Marjoram eo 10 ml Eucalyptus eo 5 ml Rosemary eo 5 ml Chamomile eo 5 ml Cajaput eo 5 ml
Pat's Salt Scrub 4 cups soybean oil 4 oz sweet almond oil 3 oz sweet orange eo ½ oz avocado oil ½ oz of peppermint eo 1/8 oz of rosemary eo ¼ oz of grapefruit eo Vitamin e or ROE, (be stingy with the ROE, it smells quite strongly) mix all of the ingredients, this makes a lot. measure out how much salt you want to use and pour and mix the above mixture into the salt until it is the consistency that you like. This is a very large recipe., you can cut it in half or more if you don't need as much.
Lip Balm 56 grams Beeswax 70 grams Virgin Coconut Oil 42 grams Cocoa Butter 56 grams clear Jojoba 56 grams Sulfated Castor Flavor to taste This is the best blend that I have tried. Melt all ingredients and heat in the microwave. Add flavor and pour into lip balm tube or lip balm pot. Coloring Tip Try infusing your oils in botanical matter for color. Alkanet has been used for centuries as lip coloring
Lip Gloss 57 grams Beeswax 57 grams Sweet Almond Oil 144 grams Castor oil 1/2 oz of honey Flavor to taste You make this the same way you would for Lip Balm, but this is a much softer product that must be put into a pot as it is too soft to be in a tube. Melt all ingredients and heat in the microwave. Add flavor and pour into lip balm tube or lip balm pot.
Lotion or Massage Bar 86 grams Beeswax 86 grams Cocoa Butter 86 grams Jojoba oil Scent to taste Use a mini deodorant tube container for this. Makes a nice purse size. Melt all ingredients and add fragrance to the level you like. Pour into containers.
Soothing Bath Tea A soothing blend of herbs to sooth you. Try putting these herbs in a muslin bag or a cheesecloth bag and steep in your tub. 2 tablespoons lavender flowers 2 tablespoons chamomile flowers 2 tablespoons calendula petals 2 tablespoons peppermint leaves

Tie in a muslin or cheesecloth bag and rub skin while relaxing in a warm bath. 5 tablespoons ground oatmeal 2 tablespoons powdered milk 2 tablespoons chamomile flowers 30 drops lavender eo Mix all of the dry ingredients and drop lavender eo while blending the mixture.
EO Splash Use this splash after a shower or bath. 100 ml witch hazel 100 ml distilled water 50 ml alcohol 15 ml glycerin 1 teaspoon Polysorbate 20 (tween 20) 50 drops of your favorite eo blend.
