Vegan Lip Balm KitVegan Lip Balm Kit

The Vegan Lip Balm Kit is a recipe that is silky and extremely moisturizing, like many other Nature’s Garden lip balm recipes. Since this lip care recipe includes various oils and butters that are soft and long-lasting, this is a perfect recipe for great lip care. Not only is this silky lip balm perfect for lip care, but this recipe is completely vegan! The lip balm recipe doesn’t use any products that are come from animals. Typically, lip balm recipes use beeswax, so we replaced this ingredient with candelilla wax. This alternative is plant based, but it is still just as great for your lips. Also, this kit creates twenty-four full tubes of vegan lip balm, so you will have plenty of lip balm with even some to share. So, this kit is all around perfect for anyone looking for a great lip balm that happens to have the additional bonus of being entirely vegan!

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Clean and Sanitize

You are going to want to make sure that you are completely prepared before you begin this project. So, you’ll need to gather and sanitize all the necessary ingredients and equipment. First, gather all of the equipment that you will need to complete this project. Also, sanitize your workspace and any other equipment. This will prevent potentially contaminating the lip balm and make the process easier to complete.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Setting up the Double BoilerVegan Lip Balm Kit Setting up the Double Boiler

Before you start make sure you know how to create a double boiler which will be used to melt your oils, waxes, and butters. You will need the two differently sized pots and a stove top. So, take the larger pot and add two or three inches of water. Then, place the smaller pot into the water. Place the double boiler on the stove and you’re ready to use! Once you have prepared your waxes, butters, and oils, place them in the smaller pot. You will then need to turn your oven on a low heat setting. Make sure that you keep a careful eye on the water level and make sure the ingredients don’t get too hot. You do not want to overheat the oils.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Working with the Candelilla Wax and Cocoa ButterVegan Lip Balm Kit Working with the Candelilla Wax and Cocoa Butter

First, you will weigh out a few of the ingredients that will take longer to melt. So, retrieve a gram scale and tare out the weight of a bowl. Then, weigh the appropriate amounts of candelilla wax and cocoa butter into the bowl. After, transfer these ingredients to the small pot of the double boiler and turn on the stove top. While these ingredients are melting move on to the next step.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Working with the Softer OilsVegan Lip Balm Kit Working with the Softer Oils

Next, you will weigh out the remaining oils for the recipe. So, tare out the bowl on the gram scale. Then, weigh out 37 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 35 grams of Castor Oil, and 1 gram of Vitamin E Oil into the bowl. After most of the candelilla wax and cocoa butter has melted, add this mixture of oils to the smaller pot in the double boiler. Make sure that your oils don’t burn as you wait for everything to be melted. Finally, once everything has melted, you can remove the melted oils from the stove top and transfer them into your bowl.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Adding Optional IngredientsVegan Lip Balm Kit Adding Optional Ingredients

Now, you are at a point where you can add in some optional ingredients. These ingredients could be flavoring, lip tint, or stevia sweetener. If you choose to flavor your lip balm, then add 20 drops of the provided Strawberry Sorbet Flavoring Oil. However, you could leave your lip balm plain if you’d prefer. Also, you can add a bit of the Stevia Sweetener to your lip balm. Although it won’t dissolve, adding a small amount shouldn’t be too noticeable. If you choose you can also crush it up a bit to create a finer powder. You also have the option to include a bit more of the provided sweetener to provide a lip scrub feel. Although you can add a lip tint to your melted oils, there is no lip tint included in the kit. After you decide the specifics of your lip balm you’re ready for the next step.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Filling the Lip Balm TubesVegan Lip Balm Kit Filling the Lip Balm Tubes

Finally, you are ready to transfer the melted lip balm to your lip balm tubes. You will want to move quickly to prevent the lip balm from setting up before you are able to transfer. So, take your plastic transfer pipettes and move the melted lip balm into the tubes. Make sure you allow your lip balm time to set up before you move the tubes or add the cap. So, after the lip balm entirely sets up your lip balm is ready to use!

6 mL Bottle of Liquid Lip Tint Coloring (color will vary between kits)

Step by Step Instructions for Making the Homemade Lip Balm Kits

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Other Materials Needed

A Medium Bowl

A Microwave

A Spoon

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Amounts Needed

2 oz of Natural Lip Balm Base

Small Amount of Mica Pigment

2 Lip Balm Tubes with Caps

3 10 mL Lip Balm Containers

3 6 mL Clear Lip Balm Pots with Lids

Either 4 white lip balm pots or 6 daisy lip balm pots

3 Transfer Pipets

A fourth of the Powdered Stevia Sweetener Packet

6 mL of the flavoring oils (either all of one bottle or half of each flavoring)

Portion of the 6 mL Bottle of Lip Tint

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.

Now, just let the homemade lip balm set up at room temperature. It will setup pretty quickly and be ready to use soon! Once they setup, place a lid on each container or lip balm tube.

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask RecipeOur next recipe is one that you are going to love!  An activated charcoal facial mask recipe is just what you need in your life.  I have recently become obsessed with activated charcoal powder.  I will say I have a love/hate relationship with the powder.  I love the way it leaves my skin feeling after using it.  In addition, it has wonderful detoxifying properties.  The benefits of activated charcoal definitely out weight the one bad thing about it.  It can get messy!  However, if you are prepared ahead of time, it is easily remedied.  So, just remember to cover your work area before beginning.  Also, wear an apron and disposable gloves when preparing Natures Garden’s activated charcoal mask recipe.

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Ingredients Available at Natures Garden

Activated Charcoal Powder
Bentonite Clay Powder
Rosemary Essential Oil
Vitamin E Oil (Tocopherol T-50)
Vegetable Glycerin
Disposable Transfer Pipettes
2 ounce Black Double Wall Jars
58/400 Black Dome Lids
1 ounce Black Bullet Bottles
20/410 Black Smooth Disc Top Lids
Natures Garden Apron

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Other Supplies You Will Need

Large Mixing Bowl
Scale (set to grams)
Rubber Spatula
Measuring Spoons (1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon)
Mixing Spoon

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Prior to Starting

First, I highly suggest wearing an apron.  Then, you will want to clean and sanitize your work area.  Also, do the same with your utensils and packaging supplies.  In addition, I recommend covering your work area.  Personally, I would use wax paper or something similar.  Then, when you are finished, you can simply fold up the paper and throw it away.  While the benefits of activated charcoal are well worth the mess, it reminds me of glitter!  It tends to be difficult to clean up and spreads like crazy.

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Total Recipe Amounts

224 grams Bentonite Clay Powder
96 grams Activated Charcoal Powder
192 grams Vegetable Glycerin
32 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
24 drops Vitamin E Oil
2 tablespoons Water  (per mask)

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Mixing the Powdered Ingredients

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Mixing the Powdered Ingredients

 

First, you will need to weigh out your activated charcoal.  Set your scale to weigh in grams.  Then, in a large mixing bowl, weigh out 96 grams of activated charcoal powder.  We added the activated charcoal powder to this recipe due to its natural detoxifying properties.

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Mixing the Powdered Ingredients

 

 

Next, add 224 grams of Bentonite Clay Powder to your bowl.  Then mix together the activated charcoal powder and clay.  I would suggest mixing slowly, you may end up with a mess if you try to move too quickly.  We added bentonite clay powder to the mask due to its ability to clean impurities from the skin.

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Oils

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Oils

 

 

Once you have all of the powder combined we will add the essential oil.  We chose to add rosemary essential oil to this recipe.  So, go ahead and add 32 drops of rosemary essential oil using a pipette.

 

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Oils

 

Then, we will be adding the vitamin E oil.  Use another pipette to add 24 drops of vitamin E Oil (Tocopherol T-50).  We prefer the tocopherol T-50 because it is the purest for of vitamin E.  It is not tocopherol acetate that is often found in capsules.  Finally, mix everything together.  You want to make sure your oils a completely and evenly mixed into the powders.

 

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Packaging Your Mask

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Packaging Your Mask

 

We chose to package the powdered portion of the mask.  This allows you to mix it as you need it.  Also, you can have it mixed ahead of time without having to add a preservative.  In addition to the powder, you will add water, and vegetable glycerin.  First, let’s go ahead and package the powder.  You will need eight 2 ounce black jars.  Fill each jar with the activated charcoal mixture.  Place a black dome lid on each jar.

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Packaging Your Mask

 

 

 

Next, you will need eight 1 ounce black bottles.  Using your scale, weigh out and add 24 grams of vegetable glycerin to each bottle.  Place a black disc lid on each bottle.

 

 

Now, I know what you are thinking… Why didn’t they just put it in a couple of larger jars?  Well, this is because we have many customers reselling their handmade cosmetic products.  So, if you are using the mask for personal use, go ahead and use a larger jar if you would like to.  You can find all of the other jars that we carry by clicking here.  Then, simply mix the mask as you need it.  Since you have not added the water, you will not need a preservative.

For those business owners reselling their products, there are a few benefits to packaging with one jar of powder and one bottle of vegetable glycerin.  First, it is much quicker to create.  It will cut down your labor time.  When preparing eight 2 oz jars it took less than 10 minutes, this also included taking pictures of each step. You will not need to distill your water, add a preservative, and mix everything together.  In addition, there will be much less to clean up.  I wanted to also add that you will get about four masks from each jar.

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Using Your Mask

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Using Your Mask

First, you will need to mix your mask.  In a small bowl, add one tablespoon of the powder.  Then, add one teaspoon of the vegetable glycerin.  Finally, add about two tablespoons of water.  Mix everything together until it is smooth.  If you need to, you can always add a bit more water if you find it is not smooth.  Then, spread a thin layer over your face.  Allow your mask to harden completely.  This should only take about 10 minutes.  Finally, remove the activated charcoal mask gently using warm water and a washcloth.

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe My Results

Personally, I loved this mask.  I believe it is my favorite of all that I have tried.  It left my skin feeling clean and refreshed.  Also, the addition of rosemary essential oil left me feeling relaxed and stress free.  Now, I will say, I have what most would call normal skin.  It is neither oily or dry and tends to be blemish free…most of the time anyways.  So, I can’t say whether it would help with blackheads or acne like I have read in articles online.  However, we would love to hear how it leaves your skin looking and feeling.

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

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

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.

Smelly Jelly Kit Prepare and Sanitize

Make sure that you have sanitized your work space for this project so you have enough room to work and simple mistakes will be easier to avoid. Additionally, you will want to have all of your supplies and ingredients nearby and easily accessible to avoid time sensitive mistakes. Make sure that you have all of the supplies needed for this kit cleaned and ready to use. Also, have all of the ingredients that are not included in your kit ready and nearby. While this recipe is fairly simple, you can be led to create an imperfect productive by using dirty utensils or leaving your half finished product to search for ingredients.

Smelly Jelly Kit Making Instructions

Once you complete the first step you will want to make sure that you work quickly. Since many of the ingredients will need to disperse evenly, they need to be added before the smelly jelly crystals absorb all the water. This is so you are able to mix your ingredients well before the crystals swell entirely and make it more difficult to mix. Otherwise, you may have some issues with your finished product, whether it be that the fragrance didn’t disperse or that the color is concentrated in only one area of the jar. Thus, we’d recommend that you read through all the directions to understand what you will be doing and make your process slightly faster.

We should also note, when cleaning up make sure you do not put any smelly jelly crystals down your drain.  You want to place any lingering crystals in your garbage can.  Smelly jellies can hold up to 400 times their weight in water.  While they are biodegradable, they can clog your drain just because of the amount of water they can absorb.  So, just use caution.  Should you accidentally get some in your drain, simply pour table salt down your drain.  This should help to unclog it.

Smelly Jelly Kit Hydrating the Smelly Jelly Crystals

Smelly Jelly Kit Hydrating the Smelly Jelly CrystalsThe first step is to add the warm water and the smelly jelly crystals to one of the jars. Initially, we are going to fill up one of the six smelly jelly jars with the smelly jelly crystals. Now, add two teaspoons of the smelly jelly crystals one of your jars. Next, take your scale and make sure the units are set the units to ounces. Set the jar of smelly jelly crystals on the scale and tare your scale. Now, weigh 10 ounces of warm distilled water into the smelly jelly jar.

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding Liquid Soap

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding Liquid SoapSecond, you are going to want to add some liquid soap to the mixture. So, add in a few drops of clear, unscented liquid dish soap. You want the soap to be clear to avoid altering the color of dye you will choose later on. Also, you want the soap to be unscented to prevent an undesirable scent blend with your chosen fragrance oil.

For those questioning why soap is added to a room scenting creation, know that there is a legitimate reason. Adding the liquid soap is done to help the fragrance oil adhere better to the smelly jelly crystals. While this may cause soap bubbles to form later, these should pop over time. However, I don’t recommend shaking your final product as it will create an abundance of soap bubbles. Plus, I have not found shaking assist in dispersing color or fragrance after the smelly jelly crystals have completely absorbed the water.

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the Dye

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the DyeNext, we are going to add the soap dye and the fragrance oil to the smelly jelly jars. While not all kits will be exactly the same, there is an order to the random chance of what you will receive. For colorants, you should receive two different pigments to color your creation from a pool of red, blue, or yellow. Also, you will receive four one ounce bottles of different fragrance oils. While the scents included change, they are guaranteed to all be the Natures Garden quality you know and love. Plus, who doesn’t love a little surprise now and again?

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the Fragrance Oil

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the Fragrance OilNow, make your creative choices and get ready to include the scent and color into your jars. Take your measuring spoons and weigh one and a half tablespoons of one of your provided fragrance oils. Next, take one of your provided dyes and add a few drops into the smelly jelly jar. Now, mix up your ingredients with a spoon to evenly disperse the color and fragrance oil.  It is important to mix the dye and scent before the smelly jelly crystals completely swell or you may have patchy and uneven distribution. While some further distribution may occur with some help from time and gravity, it’s not guaranteed that the distribution will be perfect after missing the correct timing.

Smelly Jelly Kit Letting the Crystals Swell

Finally, you are going to let your finished product sit undisturbed for about 15 minutes. This will allow the smell jelly crystals to absorb the remainder of the water, fragrance oil, and dye. If you notice a lighter portion on the side of the jar you can attempt to cap and turn the jar on its side. While this only has a chance of correcting the problem, the dye that hasn’t been absorbed could potentially sink to this patch and even things out.

Smelly Jelly Kit Creating the Remaining Smelly Jelly Jars

Smelly Jelly Kit Creating the Remaining Smelly Jelly JarsNext, you are going to repeat these steps with the five remaining smelly jelly jars. The steps will be the same for each jar with the only alterations being the color of dye or type of fragrance oil. I’d suggest that you do each jar separately to prevent uneven distribution due to the timing. If the smelly jelly crystals swell before you add the other ingredients, then it will be difficult or even impossible to evenly distribute the scent and color in your jar.

Smelly Jelly Kit Packaging and Using Your Product

Afterward, you are likely going to want to store some of your six finished smelly jelly jars. Now, you should take one of the white, flat circles and pop it into one of the gold lids. Since these lids have slits in them, you will require the white seal to help close the smelly jelly jar for storage. This method of sealing your jars should store the product well. Further, any smelly jelly jars that you are ready to use can be set up similarly. Simple remove the white seal from the jar and replace the lid. Since the lid has slits, replacing the gold lid will still allow you to use the smelly jelly jar.

Our recipe combines the sweetness of a delicious crème brulee dessert with the qualities that you’d expect in quality lip care.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe Other Ingredients You Will Need

Scale

Microwave Safe Bowls

Brown Sugar

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Total Weights and Amounts That Will Be Used

4 Ounces of the Natures Garden All Natural Lip Balm Base

1 Ounce of Brown Sugar

20 drops of Crème Brulee Flavoring

5 White Chocolate Wafers

10 Clear Jars with White Set 10 ml.

3 Microwave Safe Bowls

1 Disposable Pipette

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Melting the Lip Balm Base and the White Chocolate Wafers

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeInitially, you will need to find a scale that will measure in ounces. Be sure the units are set to the ounce measurement. Now, you will need a microwave safe bowl.  Then, use your scale to weigh out 4 ounces of Natures Garden’s all natural lip balm base. Next, you are going to melt the lip balm base. You can use a microwave for a minute or so to melt the lip balm base, but make sure that your lip balm base doesn’t get overheated. Remove the bowl from the microwave after a minute has passed and stir the lip balm base to determine whether it is entirely melted or needs to be microwaved longer. You shouldn’t do intervals much longer than a minute. Doing so could cause the base to overheat.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeSecond, you will need to prepare the addition of the white chocolate wafers. Add 5 of your white chocolate wafers to a different microwave safe bowl. You will want to melt the chocolate in the microwave, but the chocolate will not need to be heated for very long. It should only take about thirty seconds for the wafers to melt. It is important that the chocolate is not burnt to preserve the taste for the lip scrub. So, if you need to microwave the chocolate longer make sure you are watching it carefully.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Combine Base Ingredients

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeNow, you are going to combine the lip balm base, white chocolate, and Crème Brulee Flavoring into the bowl with the lip balm base. Once the white chocolate wafers and lip balm base are both melted, you can add the white chocolate to the liquid lip balm base. Next, using a pipette, add 20 drops of Creme Brulee flavor oil into the bowl of melted base. Quickly and thoroughly mix these ingredients together.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Separate the Top Layer From Base Mixture

Next, you will separate a portion of the base for later use. Since you will need to create a top layer for your crème brulee lip scrub, some of the lip balm base mixture needs to be separated out. So, grab the scale from before and make sure the units remain on ounces. Take your bowl containing the melted base. Weigh out 1 ounce of this mixture into a separate microwave safe bowl. This 1 ounce of lip balm base will be used as the top layer in a later step, but you can set it aside for now.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Pouring the Bottom Lip Balm Layer

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeYou will create the bottom layer of the lip scrub in this step. Your bottom layer will be creme brulee flavored lip balm.  Take your ten 10 ml. clear jars and line them up. You will need to pour the remaining 3 ounces of base lip balm mixture carefully to create a clean bottom layer in the jars. So, try to limit the lip balm getting on the sides of your jars as much as humanly possible. The jars should be filled with this base layer to just under two thirds of the way to the rim of the lip balm jar. This should leave you with about a third left to include the top layer. It is not extremely important whether you get this proportion perfectly accurate, but make sure you will have enough room for a thinner top layer to be added on in a later step.

While it is easier to just avoid getting the lip balm base on the sides of the jar to begin with, we all know that accidents can happen. Luckily, these splashes and misses that cling to the lip balm pot can be cleaned up. Simply take a toothpick and carefully remove excess white lip balm that is above the level of the layer. This will prevent streaks of white from being visible after the top layer is added. Be careful not to poke the toothpick into the layer around the edges, as this will be seen later through the clear jar.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Creating the Top Layer

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeNext, you are going to create the top layer. At this point, it is likely that the mixture you set aside for the top layer has hardened. While you will need to re-melt this portion of the base, this step will be quick and it is important that the base layer is set up before you begin. So, you may want to wait a minute before starting this step. However, use your own discretion. If the bottom layer looks like it is already set up, then there is no need to delay.

Next, retrieve the 1 ounce of the lip balm base mixture you previously set aside. Your top layer cannot be reheated once the sugar is added. The sugar has the potential to melt or burn, which would ruin the lip scrub. Now, you can reheat this mixture in the microwave in thirty second increments. Weigh out 1 ounce of your brown sugar, add it to the base and stir. These combined ingredients will begin to make the mixture feel thick, don’t panic you still have some time. Take a spoon and scoop the top layer into the 10 ml. jars. We suggest scooping slightly more than you need, pushing down lightly to push the layers together, and smoothing the excess off the top. Once you have filled the jars, feel free to smooth out the tops. Finally, your lip scrubs are complete!

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Using the Scrub

When you use this brown sugar scrub simply place a bit on your lips and scrub away.  The exfoliation of this recipe comes from brown sugar scrub, which is intended to remove any chapped skin to create more smooth, luscious lips. Our all natural lip balm base provides the moisturizing power that your lips need this time of year. The brown sugar offers a gentle exfoliation that your lips are sure to love!  You can then follow this sugar scrub up with a little bit of the bottom lip balm layer.  We are sure you will find this recipe just as delightful as we have. The scrumptious taste of this lip balm recipe comes from our Crème Brulee lip balm flavoring and a touch of white chocolate wafers. The combination of these lovely ingredients creates a lip scrub recipe that is super cute and perfect for the winter season!

We hope that you love this recipe and enjoyed creating your own Crème Brulee Lip Scrubs. It both looks and smells like a delicious dessert with an added benefit of tasting delicious. I probably shouldn’t lick the scrub off right after putting some on, but I just haven’t been able to help myself. Plus, the recipe creates quick a bit of lip scrubs, which is perfect for sharing with loved ones or saving for the holidays. Since Christmas is right around the corner, you could use these tasty lip scrubs as stocking stuffers or small gifts for your friends and family. This creation would definitely be a great gift, but I couldn’t really blame you for saving all ten for yourself.

Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub Recipe: Preparing Your Supplies and Work Area

Begin by preparing your packaging supplies and work area.  You will want to begin with a clean work station and supplies.  Also, sanitize your packaging jars and lids along with utensils and your work area.  We also recommend the use of an apron, hair net, and glove while making the Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe.  For this layered sugar scrub recipe you will need eight jars and lids.  We used the 4 ounce jars and Natures Garden’s white dome lids 58/400.

Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub Recipe: Melting Your Oils, Butters, and Waxes

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Melting Your Oils, Butters, and WaxesFirst, you will need a scale.  Set your scale to weigh in grams.  Weight out 113 grams avocado oil, 136 grams of coconut oil 76, 74 grams of our cocoa butter deodorized, 20 grams of our jojoba oil, 62 grams of Natures Garden’s mango butter, 50 grams of silky emulsifying wax, and 12 grams of white beeswax pastilles.   Once you have weighed them out, melt them in a double boiler over low heat.  As they are melting, stir occasionally.  However, you can move on to weighing out your other ingredients while you are waiting.

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Preparing the Other Ingredients

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Preparing the Other IngredientsFirst, we will weigh out the sugars for this scrub recipe.  This layered sugar scrub uses two types of sugar.  The brown layer uses brown sugar.  The white layer uses white sugar.  So, you will need two medium size mixing bowls.  To the first bowl add 340 grams of white sugar.  In addition, to this bowl, add 10 grams of vanilla powder.  Mix well so the vanilla powder disperses evenly throughout the white sugar.  In the second bowl you will only need to add the brown sugar.  However, you should use your hands to break up any clumps you notice in the brown sugar.

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Preparing the Other IngredientsAlso, will prepare the apple pie spice blend.  We chose to use the apple pie spice because it contains cinnamon in the mix.  We thought this would go along nicely with the cinnabun type scent.  Prior to adding it to our scrub, we will mix it with a bit of vegetable glycerin.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 10 grams of Apple Pie Spice Blend Powder.  Then, to the same bowl, add 26 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Use a spoon to mix the ingredients together.  You will end up with a paste consistency.  Set this aside, we will come back to it later.

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Preparing the Other IngredientsFinally, we will prepare the remaining ingredients. I prepared these each in separate bowls so that I had them weighed out in advance.  This made it easier to just add quickly when my oils were ready.  Weigh out 11 grams of Optiphen, 4 grams  of titanium dioxide, and 7 grams of vitamin e oil in three separate bowls.  In another bowl, I mixed the fragrance along with the vanilla white.  For this recipe we used two different fragrances.  We added 14 grams of Vanilla Silk Fragrance Oil and 9 grams of Cinnabun Type Fragrance Oil.  In addition, I added 23 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  We will come back to these once the oils are finished melting.

Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub Recipe: Combining the Body Scrub Ingredients

Now that the oils have finished melt, remove them from the heat.  Let the temperature of the oil drop to around 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  At this time add the Optiphen preservative, pure vitamin e oil, and the fragrance oil mixture.

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Combining the Body Scrub IngredientsNext, separate the oils into two separate bowls.  One bowl will be used for the white portion, the other for the brown layer.  You will need about 250 grams of oil in each medium size bowl.  In the first bowl, add 4 grams of the titanium dioxide.  Mix well to incorporate.  In the second, add the apple pie spice blend mixture.

Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub Recipe: Adding the Sugars

Vanilla Cinnamon Scrub Recipe: Adding the SugarsNow, to the bowl containing the brown colored oils, add the brown sugar.  Use a spatula to mix the sugar into the oils.  To the bowl containing the titanium dioxide, add the white sugar mixture.  Again, stir with a spatula to mix in the sugar.  Allow both  of the mixtures to set up at room temperature.  Then, you can move to the next step.

Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub Recipe: Layering the Body Scrub in the Jars

IMAG2466_1For this portion I found it easiest to use a mixing spoon.  Lastly, begin by adding a layer of the brown portion to your jars.  This recipe will fill eight jars of the four ounce clear jars.  Then, add a white layer with the portion of the scrub containing the white sugar.  Repeat this process until each jar is filled.  Finally, place a lid on each jar.  We chose to use the white dome lids for this recipe.
