If you are going to convert Jagua Powder into a gel, it is recommended to use high-quality ingredients to complete your gel process.
Basically, you will only need Xanthan gum, sugar and essential oils of your choice (Lavender, Rosemary Tea, Eucalyptus, etc).
For every 2 gr of Jagua Powder, mix 0.5 gr of Xanthan gum & 5 gr of sugar. Add 24 ml of hot water and mix until the mixture dissolves completely in the water. Jagua powder is 100% water soluble.
Stir until you find the desired consistency; take some generous time to stir it until the thickener does its job. Finally, add the 1.5 ml oil and stir again until you have a uniform gel able to go out the needle. Now you can place the gel in an applicator or in a cone and blow your imagination by making beautiful designs.
Due to the nature of the product, designs created with powder always dry quickly and sometimes they usually create hard layers, this is normal!
