What You’ll Need:
18.6 oz. Distilled Water
.75 oz Sodium Lactate
1.2 oz. BTMS-50
.5 oz Isopropyl Myristate
2.4 oz Cyclomethicone
.3 oz Optiphen
.3 oz Tapioca Powder

ONE: In a heat safe container, combine distilled water and sodium lactate. Set aside.
TWO: In a separate container, combine BTMS-50 and Isopropyl Myristate. Set aside.
THREE: Heat both containers with the distilled water and BTMS-50 in the microwave on 1 minute bursts until both reach between 150 – 160°F. Once both containers have reached 150-160°F, pour the BTMS-50 mixture into the distilled water mixture and stick blend for 1-2 minutes.
FOUR: In a separate container, combine the Tapioca Powder, Optiphen and Cyclomethicone. Stir mixture until fully incorporated.

SIX: Add the Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil and stick blend to fully combine.
SEVEN: When the lotion drops below 110°F, pour it into bottles. Let the bottles sit overnight without a cap (otherwise condensation can form inside the bottle).
