Size, and contains 150 mg. Of CBD per bottle. This is a premium lotion recipe that should be priced at a minimum of $25 per bottle.
What you need:
- 16.5 oz. Distilled Water
- 6 oz. Avocado oil
- 6 oz. Sunflower Oil
- 1.7 oz. E-wax
- 0.25 oz. Optiphen preservative
- 1 cup of dried Arnica Petals
- 1 cup of dried Calendula Petals
- 6 drops midseason orange essential oil
- 4 drops geranium essential oil
- 4 drops eucalyptus essential oil
- 750 mg CBD isolate powder
The first step in making this lotion is to prepare the infused oils. First fill 2 glass mason jars separately with 1 cup of dried arnica flower petals, and 1 cup of dried calendula flower petals. Cover the arnica petals with 6 oz. of avocado oil and place a lid on the glass jar. Cover the calendula petals with 6 oz. of sunflower oil, and place a lid on the glass jar. Fill a crock pot about half full with water and set the temperature to low. Place the glass jars in the water for 4 – 5 hours. (If your crock pot has a mild heating element, set the temp. to medium) Be careful not to cook the oil or let it boil. Remove the glass jars and allow them to cool to room temperature. Once cool, place a cheese cloth over the top of the glass jars and strain the oil apart from the organic flower material. Discard the remaining petals. Make sure the oil is thoroughly strained.
Bring the distilled water to a simmer over the stove top. Blend the oils, e wax, and water with a stick blender until it has completely emulsified. This can take several minutes. Allow the e-wax to be thoroughly incorporated to prevent separation between the oils and water once the product has settled.
Add the CBD powder, and essential oils. Continue to blend until the lotion is completely incorporated. Pour into 4 oz. Bottles while the cream is still warm and thin. This will thicken as it cools and settle into a lotion texture. Label accordingly.
