1/2 Pound Citric Acid
8oz. Glycerin (veggie based)
1/2 Pound Stearic Acid (veggie based)

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING THIS KIT: To use this kit efficiently you will a good digital kitchen or food weighing scale that weighs down to the .1 ounce and that has a "tare" function.
You will also need some sort of a blending tool. The best one we can recommend is often called: drink blender, blending stick, stick blender, emulsion blender, etc. They are available at any store that is comparable to Wal Mart. You don't need this tool per say, but you do need a stirring aide (like a hand mixer or blender) and this type of tool makes the absolute best types of lotions. Hand stirring a kit together, really isn't an option.
Lastly, while the kit is shipping to you - pick up a gallon of distilled water from any grocery store. Make sure it reads "distilled" on the label, it will help your lotion last much longer. You really cannot use tap water and have your lotion last every long on the shelf.
The amount of supplies in this kit will make approximately 130 oz. of lotion (or 3 batches based on the recipe provided). As a bonus, you will have some ingredients left over which can easily be used in other lotion recipes found online or create your own!
