Gels - Making an Aloe Vera Gel
I recently checked a book from the library titled Soap, Bubbles and Scrubs by Nicole Seabrook. It has some interesting recipes but I have to confess that some of the recipes called for a pre-made base and the book does not contain any recipes for the reader to make. If the reader is supposed to purchase these items, the resources are all for the United Kingdom. So I guess for those who live in the United States will have to try to find similar items from sources such as Brambleberry or others. But one of the recipes called for a gel base. Luckily I found this recipe from a posting from Point of Interest called Gels-Making an Aloe Vera Gel. So if you have a recipe that calls for a gel, then you may want to try using this one.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
