  • Before you begin, sterilize your tools and take precautions to avoid inhaling any mica powder. Consider using a dust mask and be sure to work in a well-ventilated area.
  • Using a small funnel, combine the rose water and vegetable glycerin in your sterilized spray bottle.
  • Slowly add the aloe powder in small increments. (If you add too much at once, it will clump.) Before adding more powder, shake to dissolve any clumps. After all of your aloe powder is combined, add the leucidal liquid.
  • Add the mica powder to your spray bottle. Take care when opening your container, as mica easily becomes airborne. Please add the mica last, as pouring anything on top of mica will cause it to fly into the air.
  • Put the spray nozzle on your bottle and shake to disperse the mica.


Before working with mica, please see my note on safety precautions above this recipe.
