How I Make Lotion and Package It

In this broadcast we are making homemade lotion and testing out our new manual lotion filling machine.

Many times I have made liquid soap, body butter, lotions and creams and the packaging takes a lot of time. I also ended up wasting a lot of product because I was using piping bags and some of the product would remain in the bag or all over the table from my unsteady hand. I am a member of a buying group and when the opportunity to buy this manual filler came up I jumped on it!

What do you use for filling and packing liquid products?

    Where did you purchase the filler machine?

    • Zakia Ringgold

      I’m part of a pre-buy group for soap supplies and unique packaging. Link is in the description.

    I really enjoyed your video and so much great information. I made hand lotion on time before a few years ago and never really thought it would go. But all of a sudden people who I gave it to are raving about it and want more. So now I am making it a family home-based business. I sure would like it if you could answer a few questions for me if you have time.

    • Zakia Ringgold

      Sure shoot me a message on Live Soap School website.

    Thank you for sharing this video, I am in the process of buying the same machine and was wondering: what is the thickest consistency you have tried filling? I work with Shea Butter creams. Have you tried filling creams yet?

    • Zakia Ringgold

      I have a pretty thick body butter and it works like a charm. You won’t be disappointed

    Hi! When you put your mason jars in the crock pot to infuse your oil, do you put the lids on the mason jars first?

    • Zakia Ringgold

      Yes as I don’t want it to be too hot to the touch

  8. Valerian Steele

    For the jasmine fragrance, is that an oil or a hydrosol?

    • Zakia Ringgold

      Essential oil. If I get some jasmine I will make a hydrosol

  9. Sabrina Laporte

    Hey what’s the link to the machine?

    • Zakia Ringgold

      Sabrina Laporte it was brought in a soap makers prebuy and imported from China. Right now with COVID they are no longer available. Try searching lotion filler on eBay some people have been able to find them there

    That machine is super awesome. It made that nightmare of waking up with 100 orders that nobody knows me from not so scary LOL. Also I realized that nightmare is slightly delusions of grandeur LOL. I love that you use rosewater it’s one of my favorite water based ingredients when I have to use them

    • Zakia Ringgold

      Yes indeed but it’s ok to have delusions of grandeur they are the ones that turn into reality ❤️
