Silken linen or body powder

Silken Linen or Body Powder

This combination of ingredients make an excellent silky powder.  1/2 cup of arrowroot powder1/4 cup of Kaolin Clay 1/4 cup of Corn Starch15 drops of Fragrance or Essential oilCombine 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

Edible powder

Here is a recipe using vanilla and honey powder. 1 cup cornstarch 2 cups of arrowroot powder2 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

Non Greasy Hand and Body Lotion

36 grams Jojoba Oil36 grams of another light Oil(we use sweet almond)8  grams of  stearic acid8  grams of glycerin2 grams citric acid20 grams emulsifying wax NF 450 grams distilled waterfragrance or essential oil to preference4 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

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.
