Getting into lotion might be fun down the line, but the idea of adding yet another process so soon is making my eyes cross! A pre-made spray sounds like my speed.

You have saved my sanity. Thank you!
Your welcome!

Don`t forget what I said about shimmer in the lotion bar, it is really easy to add, and makes a super pretty bar! What I forgot to mention in my post is that;

1) I add shimmer RIGHT before I pour the mix into the mold (mould?)
2) Store the molds (moulds...lol) in the fridge before the making of the bars, that way they start to set up faster and the shimmer wont sink to the bottom as fast (not that it sinks fast anyway, shimmer floats easily around in the mix as long it isn`t a grainy type, but you don`t wat to use that anyway)

PS! If it helps, I use the Super Sparkles from Nurture Soap, (silvery white) but she changed the name to Biodegradable glitter now, but it is exactly the same as what I have on hand here. It is also in gold.

Good luck!

Thank you so much!! I'm going to try this!!!

I have some King Midas gold mica and some Pearl with violet tone, both from Brambleberry. I'll give those a try for now and put the Super Sparkles on my wishlist - because that sounds gorgeous!!

I'm so excited, thank you!

If you do a lotion bar you probably don't have to buy any extra ingredients like emulsifiers or preservatives. I've made lotion bars, I think I used a recipe from Wellness Mama and I love it.

The lotion bar is amazing!! My king midas mica doesn't come through with a shimmer, so I'm going to need some more sparkling stuff, but the experience is incredible!

Thank you, MySoapyHeart!

They make their own products, so if there are problems the can answer, any questions. If memory serves me right the chemist and wife are the owners. Plus they are within 50 miles of me so I can pickup. I will mention most of their fo's are not cp friendly
