Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Clean and Sanitize

Make sure that you sanitize both your equipment and your workspace before starting this project. While this is a simple task, performing it before you begin will make the process easier. First, clear off anything you won’t be using from your workspace and sanitize the cleaned area. This will make sure that you have room to work and prevent potential contamination. Next, make sure that your equipment, such as pots or bowls, are sanitized. This prevents possible contamination of your lip balm pots.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Creating the Double Boiler

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Creating the Double BoilerBefore starting you should get your double boiler prepared. This is done to prevent the oils and butters from burning. Although this is used to prevent the oils from being ruined, the water could boil too high and get into the pot. So, make sure that you keep a careful watch on the boiling water. Now, retrieve both your larger pot and your smaller pot. Fill your larger pot with a couple inches of water and place this pot on the stove top. Then, place the smaller pot into the larger pot of water.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Weighing and Melting the Butters and Oils

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Weighing and Melting the Butters and OilsFirst, you will be weighing out the butters, oils, and beeswax for your lip balm. Find your scale and tare the weight of the bowl. Now, weigh out the 26 grams of beeswax, 47 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 20 grams of Shea Butter, 23 grams of Cocoa Butter, and 1 gram of Vitamin E Oil. After you weigh out all these ingredients you can put this mixture into the smaller pot of the double boiler. While you are melting these ingredients, make sure that you are keeping watch to avoid burning.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Stevia

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the SteviaNext, you are going to include the stevia in your oils. While your oils are melting, you will be preparing the sweetener. So, take the powdered stevia sweetener and crush the granules with a spoon. After you have crushed enough of your sweetener, place the stevia in the drawstring tea bag. Place your tea bag into the smaller pot of the melted oils and press on the bag to force the particles of stevia into the mixture. While this sweetener will not dissolve in oil, the particles that escape the tea bag will evenly disperse. This provides the lip balm with a sweetness, but the tea bag prevents the stevia from creating a scrub texture.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoring Oil

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoring OilNow, you will add the Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoring Oil to your melted butters and oils. First, remove the melted mixture from the stove top and transfer the liquid to your bowl. Next, use one of your disposable pipettes to add 20 drops of your flavoring to the melted mixture.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Base of the Lip Balm

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Base of the Lip BalmThen, you are going to add the base to your lip balm pots. This will be the bottom portion of the Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm. You will fill the lip balm pots almost to the top.  Leave about 1/8 of an inch from the top. It is important to make sure that you leave enough room to add the red strawberry topping later. So, take your melted mixture, disposable transfer pipettes, and fill the pots the appropriate amount. Also, it may be more helpful to uncap your lip balm pots before you begin filling, but you can uncap the pots as you go.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Provided Lip Tint

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Provided Lip TintNow, you are going to add the lip tint to your remaining lip balm mixture. Before you add this portion of the lip balm, make sure that you re-melt your remaining butter and oils to allow you enough time for you to work. Next, you will be adding the lip tint to the melted mixture in an amount you see fit to provide a bright red topping for your lip balm. Mix the lip tint thoroughly until the color is even.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Top Layer            

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Top LayerNext, you will be adding the red colored lip balm to your lip balm pots. Before you add the red lip balm, make sure that the sides of the clear pots are cleaned off to make sure that the layers look clean. So, remove any of the lip balm on the sides above the bottom layer. Once you mix the lip tint into the melted butter and oils, you can pipette this mixture onto the partially filled lip balm pots. This will create an aesthetic and flavor of a small strawberry cheesecake.

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Melting the Lip Balm Base

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Melting the Lip Balm BaseFirst, we are going to melt the lip balm base. Take the lid off of the lip balm base jar that you’ve been given. Now, put the jar without the lid into your microwave. You will want to heat your lip balm base in increments of 30 seconds. After this small amount of time, take the jar out and determine if it needs another 30 seconds. At this time, stir the lip balm base. Then, if needed, put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. The time that you will need to microwave will depend on the strength of your particular microwave. Once all of the lip balm base is liquid you will be ready for the next step.

 

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Tinting Your Lip Balm Base

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Tinting Your Lip Balm BaseNext, you will add the lip tint to your melted lip balm base. The color of your lip balm tint will vary between different kits, so you may not get the same shade each time. However, in the kits used for this blog, we had the Prissy Pink Lip Tint. You will want to add several drops of the lip tint with one of your provided pipettes. If you want a lighter shade, then add fewer drops. If you want to create a darker shade, then you may want to add quite a few more drops of the colorant. You can add a few drops and mix it quickly to decide on the shade. Since it will dry slightly different color you can place a drop on a paper plate and see the shade you will get in the end. Overall, the amount of lip tint that you add depends on your own personal preference.

 

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Optional Sweetening Step

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Optional Sweetening StepNow, you have the option to add in some powdered stevia sweetener. If you want your lip balm to be a bit of a gritty texture similar to a lip scrub, then you will want to include this step in your process. The added sweetener will not dissolve and will be suspended in your mixture. Those that would like to create this lip scrub sort of texture, will want to add a fourth of the packet into your mixture. If you are dividing your mixture into two portions, then you will want to add about an eighth to either one or each of your mixtures. However, if you don’t want any lip scrub feeling you don’t have to add the sweetener at all.

 

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Flavoring the Lip Balm Base

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Flavoring the Lip Balm BaseThen, you are going to add the lip balm flavoring to your mixture. There are two different ways you can do this step. Either split your mixture into two or make all of the lip balm products the same. If you are keeping your mixture in one bowl, then you will want to pick one of your two flavorings. Add the entire 6 ml bottle of your chosen flavoring to your lip balm base mixture. Now, mix and you are ready for the next step. However, you can use a bit of both if you’re are indecisive or like each of your flavorings equally. If you are using both, then you will want to split your mixture in half into two different bowls. In one add half of your first flavoring and in the other bowl add half of the second flavoring. Now, mix a both of your bowls.

Next, it is time to add a bit of mica dust to make your lip balm sparkly and pretty! Either take your single batch or your divided batch and add some of the dust. Depending on how sparkly you want it to be, you can add more or less. You don’t need to add all of the mica powder given in your kit, but adding quite a bit shouldn’t hurt your finished product.

Finally, you are going to add the lip balm mixture to your various lip balm tubes and pots. If you have one single batch, take one of your clean pipettes to transfer the lip balm to the containers. You may want to be quick as your lip balm may start to set up. On the other hand, those that have divided their mix into two parts can use the pipettes that were used for the flavoring to transfer the mixture to the containers.

It can remove grease stains and oils, clean cars, corroded batteries, ovens, microwaves, vinyl shower curtains, and it can even remove marks on walls. Baking soda also has deodorizing qualities! It can be used as a replacement for deodorant, deodorize pet bedding, cars, closets, refrigerators, shoes, cutting boards, dishwashers, garbage disposals, trash cans and even stuffed animals just to name a few.

It is also used to treat indigestion and heartburn, it can also be used when removing splinters and for allergic reactions to poison ivy, sumac, and oak. For oral health, baking soda is used as an ingredient in toothpastes to help remove plaque from the teeth. Soaking your feet in baking soda can treat foot fungus and odors.

Natures Garden StoreNatures Garden Store

Marsha and the staff at Natures Garden have been feverously working away at getting the store ready and in tip top shape.

Earlier this year, we started the intense planning and implementing of a store for our wonderful customers to come into and shop.  This was a feat that was easier said than done.  Through months of planning and strategizing, we were able to create a beautiful store on paper that believe it or not contained every item that Natures Garden currently carries.

Then came the week when all of storage and shelving units were put together.  This also included an electrician, a painter, and a small construction crew.  When they were finished, for the first time we were able to see the Natures Garden store becoming a reality.

Next, it was time to stock shelves.  This is where we are now.   Through immense hard work and dedication, the staff at Natures Garden has been steadily plugging away at stocking, pricing, and creating displays for the store.  And, now after all of this time, we are finally beginning to see light at the end of the store tunnel.

Although the store is still a work in progress so to say, we are getting very close.

Sure, all of Natures Garden products are out and available for purchase; but we are still finalizing some aspects to really knock it out of the park!

The Natures Garden store is currently open and you all are more than welcome to come in and visit.  We still have the fragrance sniffing wall (although it is more of a Fragrance Land), as well as 16 oz, 8 oz, 4 oz, and 1 oz fragrance bottles available to purchase.  All of our soap bases, waxes, butters, oils, molds, and herbs are also out and ready for purchase as well.  We even have our vast array of kits, colorants, flavorings, and essential oils out too and they are all ready for their new crafting home.

One thing is for sure, if you come visit the Natures Garden store, you will not be disappointed.  Just please bear with us as we strive for perfection.

cindy ohio soapers gatheringHello everyone!

Well I made it through my first ever Ohio Soapers Gathering! I have to say, it was great to meet the people who love soaping as much as we do. They are a fantastic group of individuals. I was however a bit nervous being my first gathering, but, upon my arrival the coordinator of the gathering, Jackie Harris greeted me with such warmth how could I not feel welcomed? She was just so thrilled we were able to attend, what a lovely lady she is. I set up my tables and waited for the event to begin. Every one of my booth visitors were just as excited as ever that we had attended the gathering for the day with some of our products. So much so that even those who preordered, bought more stuff while I was there. There was no stopping them!

Our Facebook followers told me how excited they were about the opening of our store and that the pictures were amazing! I told them the pictures don’t do it justice and that they will just have to come down in person. They fully and enthusiastically agreed, saying a road trip is definitely in the near future. Several of my customers that had already been there, raved to the others standing nearby.

Throughout the event there were informative demonstrators. Bobbie Eastman with hair shine, Kim Craig with handmade cream, Kristy Schemrich with laundry soap, and a few others. I am glad they held these demos in the same room, otherwise I would have missed out. Even though I could never get away from the table due to my fabulous customers, I could still hear and gather information from the demos. I even got a few samples!

They had a “garage sale” table which I thought was cute (I should have brought my stuff of odds and ends to sell). These were things the donators couldn’t use anymore but knew someone else could. Then there was a table called the “swap table.” You donate stuff you made, up to 5 things and you received as many in return. How fun is that? I can only imagine what kind of things were made by these amazing crafters. Everyone was so creative, I was in awe!

The door prizes were great too, there was everything from Tickets to Kalahari Water Park, gift certificates, several soaping products, and of course Natures Garden shopping bags and Tshirts! All of the winners were so happy to come away from the gathering with new knowledge, new products, winnings, and a full belly. All in all I believe it was a great success for everyone all around.

natures garden winners
I can’t wait for the next one because I will get to meet a whole new realm of awesome people. Their creativity inspires me and it’s good to know there are people out there using their knowledge for things that are good and can offer information that will help others. Whether it is to teach them, save them money, or inspire THEIR creative juices, soaping is a great artistic field to venture into. The avenues are endless…seriously!

So my friends, if you have never been to a gathering, go! If you know someone who makes soap, learn! If you don’t personally know somebody, come out to our website at naturesgardencandles.com and look at our blogs, show and tells, all of our free recipes, or, check out our starter kits. It may seem intimidating but know we are always here to help…always!

Although I had a blast in Sandusky at the Ohio Soapers Gathering, I was past exhausted! It was a good exhaustion and I came away from it with more then I went there with…I am glad I was a part of it.

Well kids until the adventure, have a fabulous day!

Menthol Crystals


This entry was posted in all natural, All natural shampoo, bath and body, bath products, cold process soap, cosmetic supplies, handmade soap, homemade, homemade lotion, homemade soap, lip balm, lotion, menthol crystals, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

menthol crystalsThe menthol crystals that Natures Garden carries are actually crystallized peppermint essential oil.  These crystals are 100% natural and have a variety of uses when introduced into your products.

Although menthol crystals can be made synthetically, when derived naturally they come from mint oils such as cornmint or peppermint.  Once the extraction occurs, the oil is immediately frozen (cold extraction) which forms the menthol crystals.  These crystals, which look similar to smaller oblong rock crystals, are solid at room temperature but have a melting point of around 107 degrees Fahrenheit.  These menthol crystals which are a white or clear crystalline substance are soluble in alcohol and propylene glycol and they are miscible in oils.

Menthol crystals have many uses.  They can be found in many industries such as oral hygiene, candies, pharmaceuticals, personal care, perfumery, and tobacco.  They naturally have a strong minty odor to them.  And, their usage percentage in a product can vary anywhere from .2% to 10% depending on the end product that is being formulated.

Menthol contains local anesthetic, antipruritic, analgesic, antispasmodic and anti irritant qualities.  The use of menthol in bath and body products can actually engage the cold sensitive receptors in our skin and provide a cooling sensation.  This same sensation can also occur from inhaling menthol as well as ingesting it.

menthol crystals in oral hygiene
Oral Hygiene:

In the realm of oral hygiene this ingredient is used not only for its refreshing flavor, but also to combat bad breath and can be used in mouthwash and toothpaste.

 

menthol crystals in gumFlavoring and Candies:
Menthol crystals are used to flavor many of our favorite go to minty pleasures.  It is used with the addition of anise to produce the tried and true flavor of licorice.  The crystals are used in peppermint and spearmint chewing gum for their refreshing and cooling feeling when chewed.  And, it is also even used in the production of many hard candies.

menthol crystal usesPharmaceuticals:
For slight throat irritations, menthol crystals can be used in items like cough medicines, cough drops, and throat lozenges.  The addition of this ingredient will cause a soothing and cooling sensation in the inflamed area.

Menthol crystals can be used to alleviate nausea, especially when the nausea is due to motion sickness.  This is because peppermint (which is used in making menthol crystals) is a natural carminative herb, meaning it can settle the digestive system.

Because menthol crystals have antipruritic and anti irritant qualities, they are great for anti itch creams and balms.

When it comes to chest congestion and upper respiratory issues; menthol can work as a decongestant.  The uses in this category for menthol crystals include: rubs, balms, or salves.  Inhaling the minty aroma of these crystals will also help to alleviate the blockages.

For an excellent fever reducer, menthol crystals can be made into wraps to be applied to the head or feet.  These wraps can also be made into balms or cooling gels.

menthol crystals in bath productsBath and Body: (Once made into a liquid form)

Menthol crystals are a great addition to lip balms.

Menthol crystals are a remarkable additive to lotions and creams for their analgesic property.  This provides temporary relief of minor aches and pains, as well as sprains in muscles.  Because menthol is antispasmodic, they can also help to reduce muscle cramping and muscle spasms.

Due of their amazing cooling, analgesic, and anesthetic properties, menthol crystals are extremely helpful in the treating of sunburns and razor burns.  The cooling sensation in gels and shaving balms simulates the feeling of ice providing some instant relief from the pain.  But, menthol can also penetrate deeply to numb the pain area temporarily.

Menthol crystals can even be used in deodorants, hair shampoos, and hair conditioners for their refreshing and cooling sensations.

Adding menthol crystals to soap recipes can enhance your soap for any of menthol’s benefits.  Just make sure the crystals are completely dissolved in the soaping oils and stirred well to reduce skin irritations. 

menthol crystals in perfumes

Perfumery:
Menthol is even used in the perfumery industry.  When dealing with notes of floral, especially that of rose, perfumists will use menthol to produce menthyl esters.  These esters actually accentuate these delicate notes.


Tobacco:

Menthol crystals are used to flavor various tobacco items such as cigarette tobacco, pipe tobacco, and chewing tobacco. 

The shelf life for these crystals is 2 years when stored accordingly.  However, areas with high humidity may experience the hardening and mass joining of these crystals into a solid lump.  This lump may be broken up by lightly hitting it with a mallet.  Also, areas with high levels of heat may melt the crystals.  Menthol crystals are best stored in a tight fitted glass, aluminum, or double lined container.  The crystals should be kept in a cool and dry area away from heat and direct sunlight.

Care should be taken when using menthol crystals in skincare products, as using too much may irritate the skin.
