Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Clean and Sanitize

Before you begin, you will want to make sure everything is sanitized and ready to use for your craft. First, make sure all that the stove and counter top are cleaned off. This ensures that you will have plenty of room to create this scrub. Also, gather all of your equipment and make sure to sanitize every last piece. Further, consider wearing gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net to keep your skin and recipe safe throughout this process.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Making the Double Boiler

Now, you will want to know how to create a double boiler before we begin creating this scrub recipe. If you already know how to create this melting contraption, then feel free to begin the recipe. However, those that aren’t sure how to put this together can read through a brief yet detailed instruction on how to create a double boiler with two household pots. Further, the double boiler is crucial to preventing your butters and oils from scorching, which makes it important to know how to make this device.

Initially, you will find your small pot and your medium pot. The larger pot will contain the boiling water and the smaller pot will contain the ingredients that you intend to melt. First, add about an inch of water to the medium pot to start. Then, place your smaller pot inside the medium pot. You will need to adjust the water level so that it is at least touching the bottom of the small pot, but the water can’t be high enough where it could boil over into the melting oils or butters. Finally, you can turn on the stove top and add your ingredients to the small pot.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Melting The Oils and ButtersMargarita Salt Scrub Recipe Melting The Oils and Butters

First, you are going to be melting the necessary oils and butters for this recipe. So, find a scale and tare the weight of one of your mixing bowls. Now, weigh 136 grams of Coconut Oil – 76, 113 grams of Avocado Oil, 74 grams of Mango Butter, 62 grams of Shea Butter, 50 grams of Emulsifying Wax Traditional, 20 grams of Jojoba Oil, and 12 grams of Beeswax White Pastilles into one of your mixing bowls. Next, you can add these ingredients to your previously prepared double boiler. Make sure to occasionally stir as your ingredients melt to ensure that they don’t burn.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Adding Ingredients After Melting Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Adding Ingredients After Melting

After your oils and butters melt,  you will be creating your colorant to add into the mix. So, weigh out 2 grams of Lemon Peel Powder and 14 grams of Vegetable Glycerin into your small mixing bowl. Then, add the 15 drops of the Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant. Mix the ingredients in this small bowl well enough to incorporate everything and create a paste consistency. Finally, allow the oils and butters to cool to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit and add the colorant paste to your melted oils and butters. Again, mix this well.

Also, you will be adding a few of the remaining ingredients to your mixture. So, weigh 5 grams of Optiphen Preservative, 5 grams of Vitamin E Oil, 121 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, and 20 grams of Margarita Fragrance Oil. Now, stir this mixture to incorporate everything that has been added.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Adding the Dead Sea Salt

Next, you will be adding the finely ground dead sea salt to your initial mixture of all the other ingredients. So, retrieve a second medium mixing bowl and your gram scale. Tare the bowl weight and weigh out 680 grams of the Dead Sea Salt Fine Ground into the new, clean mixing bowl. Then, pour your liquid mixture into your weighed dead sea salt. Also, you should be mixing to incorporate as your pour. Once everything is mixed together well, move on to the next step.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Finishing Touches on the Scrub

After everything is mixed together, it is time to finish up making this salt scrub. First, let your finished scrub cool to room temperature. Next, gather your 4 oz. PET jars and get them ready for transfer. So, scoop up your scrub with your spatula and fill up each of your eight jars. Also, you could pour the scrub into your jars if that method feels more comfortable. Finally, you are ready to add your dome lids. Now, your salt scrub is complete and ready for your to use!

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Clean and Prepare

Before you begin preparing the Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit, you will want to get prepared to make sure that the process goes as smoothly as possible. First, make sure that your equipment and work space are sanitized and ready for you to get to work. This will help you stay organized and prevent your product from contamination. Second, you may want to read over all the steps of the kit. This will help you be aware of the critical temperatures and timing of certain steps. Otherwise, you get your lotion recipe to emulsify correctly or you could burn off the Optiphen preservative. Finally, once you feel that you’re well prepared to create your delicious frappe mocha scented body cream you can get started!

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit the Creative Decision

While you are given detailed directions and all the necessary ingredients to create this body cream, you have an opportunity to create one of two slightly different products. You can either create this recipe in one solid mocha colored layer or create a two-layer product. This other layer is meant to look like a whipped topping on top of a rich mocha base layer. The second layer would use a portion of the oils that you have been provided within the kit and divide it to create a white topping layer. Either way you choose, the steps will be given for each in the steps below. Once you have decided, we will begin creating our Frappe Mocha Body Cream.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Boiling Water

Initially, you’ll want to boil about 500 grams of distilled water for twenty minutes. Also, you want to make sure the water reaches at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit for twenty minutes. This step is meant to kill bacteria, which will help to prevent contamination issues in your final product. While we will not use 500 grams of water, some of it will boil off. So, we want to make sure we have plenty of water to allow for this.

For those creating a layered cream: If you are creating a layered cream, you may want to add more water to the pot as evaporation will occur.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Making Coffee

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Making CoffeeSecond, we are going to prepare the coffee filter to create the coffee water for your mocha colored base. Take your strainer, set the coffee filter inside, and add about a half cup of coffee grounds to the filter. Next, we will be pouring the boiled water through the coffee and filtering mechanism. This will be done by placing a medium bowl on your scale. You will then hold the strainer over the bowl and pour the water into the coffee filter. It will then filter the coffee water into your bowl. However, the amount that you will need depends on whether you are making one or two layers. If you chose to create a single mocha colored layer, then filter 353 grams of the boiled water through the coffee. Set the coffee water aside, for now, we will come back to it.

For those creating a layered cream: If you are going to have a whipped topping appearance on your products, you will only need to filter 264 grams of boiled water through the coffee. Take the remaining water and place it back on the heat. Set the coffee water aside, we will come back to it.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Double Boiler

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Double BoilerThis next step requires the use of a double boiler. However, the same effect can be done with one larger pot and one smaller pot. Take the larger pot and add a couple of inches or so of water. Put the smaller pot inside of the larger pot. When adding your oils and butters you will want to add them to the smaller pot. The water in the larger pot will warm up the ingredients, and it will help you to prevent the scorching of your butters and oils.

 

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Oil Phase

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Oil PhaseNow, we are going to heat the oils, butters, and emulsifying wax. Weigh out 48 grams of sweet almond oil, 24 grams of traditional emulsifying wax, 10 grams of cocoa butter, 8 grams of stearic acid, and 5 grams of vitamin E oil. Then, melt them using your double boiler. Once this mixture is melted, you will remove it from the heat and cool it to about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Emulsification

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit EmulsificationNext, you will combine your oil and water for the emulsification phase of the recipe. As the coffee water and oil mixture both approach 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you should get the stick blender, scale, and a large bowl ready. Once both the mixtures are around this temperature you will combine the oil and coffee water, mixing with your stick blender. The amount of oil that you will add depends on the number of layers you intend to create. If you are making a single layer, then simply add all of the oil to the water.

For those creating a layered cream: Now, you will need to separate the amount of the oil mixture if you are going to create a layered cream.You will measure out about 71 grams of the oil mixture into the large bowl. Next, mix the water and oil very well with the stick blender.  The remaining oil will then be used for the whipped portion.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Cool Down

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Cool DownFinally, let the emulsified mixture cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your mixture is at this temperature, you can add the preservative and fragrance oils. If you are making a single layer, add 7 grams of Optiphen, 5 grams of the World’s Best Coffee Fragrance Oil, and 1 gram of the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil.

 

For those creating a layered cream: If this is the base of your dual layered product, then you will add 5 grams of Optiphen, 4 grams of the World’s Best Coffee Fragrance Oil, and a bit less than a gram of the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Whipped Cream Layer (Optional)

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Whipped Cream Layer (Optional)If you have set some of your provided ingredients aside for two layers, then you can prepare your white topping layer. First, make sure that your clear, boiled water and your leftover oil mixture are at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, combine 89 grams of the clear water and the remaining oil. Then, stick blend well to emulsify. Next, let the emulsified blend cool to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit before you add the final ingredients. Now, add about 2 grams of Optiphen, 1 gram of the World’s Best Coffee Fragrance Oil, and the rest of the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil. Finally, blend this well and set the mixture aside until you mocha colored layer has set up.

 

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Filling the Jars

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Filling the Jars

 

Now, retrieve the light mocha colored bowl of your emulsified lotion. Next, once the mocha base has cooled to room temperature, you can scoop the lotion into the jars.  If you are only making one layer, then you can feel free to scoop the base to the top of your jars. Also, sprinkle some of your leftover coffee grounds on top.  Finally, place a lid on top!

 

 

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Filling the Jars with Topping

 

For those creating a layered cream: Be sure to leave some room, about

half an inch, for the top layer. First, wait for the white topping layer to cool down to room temperature. Then, once this layer is at the right temperature, scoop this layer into the top of the jars. Also, you can sprinkle some of your leftover coffee grounds onto the top of your lotion product. Finally, place a lid on top of your jar!

We hope that you enjoy Natures Garden’s Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit as much as we have.  Personally, I love this cream recipe! It doesn’t leave oily residue on your hands, but has a wonderful softening effect on the skin. Between the intoxicating scent and the moisturizing power, this recipe has easily become my absolute favorite lotion! So, I need to let all my fellow coffee lovers out there know that this is a recipe that you do not want to pass up! Also, for more kits available from Natures Garden, click here.

Wine ScentCabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance OilFragrance Oil Spotlight

Cabernet Sauvignon has a long history that was first introduced in  the year 1820.  After decades of experimentation, the general view of Cabernet Sauvignon has improved as more winemakers find ways to complement their native grape varieties with Cabernet as a blending component.  The grape itself is small with seeds, and has a thick black skin.  It has a not too sweet grape flavor that is inviting and pleasurable.  When it comes to this wine scent, our customers were astounded with the performance of Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance in their products.  There is no strong “alcohol” scent and they are left with a wonderful grape aroma that is surprisingly delightful, full bodied, and completely high in demand when it comes to wine scents.

What does Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance Oil smell like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the sweet aroma of wild grapes enhanced with hints of strawberries and sweet sugary notes with a light alcoholic background. A wonderful aroma of red sweet cabernet wine.  An NG Original Scent!

Insulating Soap

insulating soap In an earlier blog post, we discussed how insulating soap to promote gel phase was a matter of personal choice. Whether you insulate or choose not to, your soap will still be soap.

When it comes to whether you choose to insulate or not, really there are only two factors that will change. The first is the amount of cure time. Due to the fact that the saponification process is slowed down by the prevention of gel phase, your soap may need extra cure time before use. On the other hand, promoting a full gel phase for your soap means an accelerated saponification process with a normal cure time. And, the second difference is an aesthetic one.

The finished look of your soap will differ slightly based upon whether you choose to prevent gel phase or encourage it. By preventing gel phase (sticking your molded soap in the fridge or freezer), your finished soap will have a matte look to it. By promoting gel phase, your finished soap will have a slight translucent, shiny look to it. Again, however, please remember regardless of which method you choose either method results with finished soap.

When making soap, it is important to remember that the gel phase occurs during the saponification process. While your soap is in the mold, the various soaping ingredients react with the lye mixture, and heat is used to help the acceleration of the whole saponification process. When choosing to promote gel phase during saponification, it can be accomplished through means of insulation.

Insulating your soap means wrapping the soap with various layers in an attempt to keep the heat within the soap. Because the saponification process is endothermic (meaning the process pulls heat from its surroundings), keeping the soap insulated is the best means to successfully promoting gel phase throughout your whole soap. It will also help to prevent a partial gel. If you remember, a partial gel is where the center of your soap achieves gel phase, but the outside areas do not. This typically occurs because the outside of the soap looses heat in a quicker fashion therefore inhibiting the ideal environment for a full gel phase to occur.

Through the means of insulation, you can provide your soap with its ideal environment (heat wise).  And, when it comes to insulation for your soap, there are many different items you can use.  These items would include: newspaper, cardboard, blankets, towels, etc.  Practically, you can use any layer type material that will keep the heat in the soap (but never aluminum foil).

Many soapers will use various items in combination such as: wrapping the soap with saran wrap (especially if the soap has a decorated top), then covering it with newspaper, surrounded by towels, and finally placed under a box. There really is no limit for insulation. And, many believe that over insulating can never be done. Remember the key to insulating, if you are choosing to promote the gel phase; is to keep as much heat in the soap as possible.

However, please note: If you are soaping a recipe that does contain sugar or dairy products, you may want to go a little on the lighter side of insulating due to the fact that these items in your recipe will increase heat during the saponification process. Extreme insulating in these examples may cause the ingredients to “burn”, possibly resulting in discoloration and an off smell in your finished soaps.  It can also cause your soap batter to begin to bubble out of your mold.  You do however have the choice of preventing the gel phase for these types of recipes, and sticking your molded soap in the fridge or freezer.
