I was sort of having a mini discourse about this in the SKB Rave thread, and I thought it might be useful to post something like this here:

I use all three of these tools for nice evenly and smoothly mixed/fluffy whipped (or homogenized, as they say) potions:

1) Battery operated mini hand held mixer blender for watery 1 oz to 2 oz potions (SERUM-type potions): http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HAND-HELD-DRINK-MIXER-BLENDER-MILK-SHAKE_W0QQitemZ110092059760QQihZ001QQcategoryZ20668QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem This one will also introduce air into your mixture.

2) Magic Bullet blender mixers with different sized cups which will mix and whip creams / thicker potions from 2 oz up to 12 oz depending on the cup size you use: http://cgi.ebay.com/Magic-Bullet-New-in-box-21-Pc-Set_W0QQitemZ280083818526QQihZ018QQcategoryZ20673QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem This one introduces a lot of air into the mixtures and gives you fluffier results

3) Kitchen stick hand mixers for amounts larger than 12 oz (I use this for my shampoos and conditioners) http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-KitchenAid-KHB300ER-Hand-Blender-Mixer-KHB300-RED_W0QQitemZ120086119177QQihZ002QQcategoryZ20668QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem. It introduces less air than option 2 above, so it doesn't make my shampoo and cleanser potions "bubble and boil over".

I would love to hear from other forum members about their mixing tools.

nyonyakay--great thread! Thank you for sharing, I was thinking of investing in a few mixing tools as I venture a little deeper into DIY.
