Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: The Fragrance BlendRustic Wax Melts Recipe: The Fragrance Blend

You are going to love this aroma for the holidays. The blend of this fragrance oil with the natural herbs added to this product are absolutely amazing! First, the Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil is an exciting Christmas culinary drink scent. The wonderful aroma of mulled apple cider, fresh pineapple, and orange zests surrounded with spicy cinnamon and cloves. Furthermore, the spice notes in this fragrance oil are amplified by the real herbs that will add to the aroma as they are heated. So, these lovely herbs are not there just to look pretty. The whole clove, orange peel c/s, and the cinnamon sticks add some extra and fresh spice aroma to the fragrance to really kick it up a notch!

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Clean and Prepare Work Station

Before you get started on this recipe, you should clean and prepare the area that you are going to be working in. This will prevent any specs of dirt from accidentally getting into the recipe and it will make the entire process more enjoyable for you. First, cleaning and sanitizing the equipment you need and tidying the work space will keep your projects clean and beautiful. Nothing is worse than finding a spec in your design that you didn’t catch before your wax cooled. Plus, having everything ready to go will make your experience more enjoyable and stress-free! This way you can just focus on the fun of crafting.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the Double Boiler

A double boiler is the perfect way to gently heat your ingredients and this method will minimize the risk of scorching your wax. If you don’t know how to create a double boiler, then we will walk you through the simple steps! Since you are melting wax, you can use the pouring pot to hold your melting ingredients. Then, you will want to have a larger pot that the pouring pot can easily fit into with extra room on the sides. Next, add enough water to the larger pot that it touches the pouring pot, but won’t boil over. After, place the pouring pot into the larger pot. Then, add the larger pot to the stove and boil the water.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe Measure the Necessary HerbsRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Measure the Necessary Herbs

First, you are going to want to prepare the various herbs that this recipe will need. These herbs are perfect for adding to the appearance of these melts. You are going to be working with four different herbs in this recipe.  Not only will you need to prepare a mixture of herbs for the middle of the melts, but you will need to get the cinnamon sticks ready for the top of the melts. So, the two herb preparations will be needed at different steps in the process.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Prepare the Herb Mixture

You will need to prepare the mixture of herbs that will be added to the wax melts. So, take a bowl and the scale. Then, weigh out about an ounce of juniper berries, orange peel cut and sifted, and whole cloves each. After, mix these herbs together and set this bowl aside. Later, these herbs will be added to the mold cavities with the wax to create your homemade wax tarts.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Prepare the Cinnamon Sticks

Separate from the bowl of herbs, you are going to want to prepare the cinnamon sticks. You are going to need twenty-four pieces in total. However, you will be breaking each cinnamon stick into smaller bits, so you won’t need a whole lot. You can get about 2-3 pieces from each individual cinnamon stick. You should look at the size of the mold’s cavities and make sure your pieces are small enough to fit on top. Then, set these cinnamon stick pieces aside.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Melting the Candle WaxRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Melting the Candle Wax

Next, you are going to prepare the Pillar of Bliss Wax for these homemade rustic wax tarts. So, take the pouring pot and weigh out about 345 grams of the wax into it. After, you will need to melt the wax completely. So, create your double boiler and heat the pillar of bliss wax. You will want to set the heat to a make sure that the water is boiling. So, you won’t need to turn the stove temperature all the way up. Also, make sure that you stir the wax to help prevent burning.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe Adding in the Fragrance OilRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding in the Fragrance Oil

Once all of the wax melts, you can remove the pouring pot from the heat. Then, you will add a thermometer to the pouring pot. This is to make sure that the wax isn’t too hot when you add the fragrance oil. If it is too hot, then the wax could burn off notes of your fragrance oil. Obviously, you don’t want to ruin this delightful Christmas spice aroma. So, make sure the thermometer is at about 180 degrees Fahrenheit before you add the fragrance. After you reach the right temperature you can pour in 41 grams of the Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil and stir the wax to incorporate the scented oil.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Herbs to the MoldRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Herbs to the Mold

Before you are able to pour your melted wax, you are going to add some herbs to the mold. So, you will need to retrieve the small bowl that contains the mixture of juniper berries, orange peel c/s, and whole clove. However, you will not need the cinnamon sticks quite yet. So, leave this fourth herb off to the side. Now add a bit of this mixed herb mixture into each of the twenty-four cavities. We will not need this herb mixture later, so be sure to use it all in this step. You can go back and fill in cavities that don’t have as much as others.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the WaxRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the Wax

Now, you are ready to pour the melted Pillar of Bliss Wax into the mold. So, grab your scented wax and begin pouring your wax over the herbs. You will want to fill each of the twenty-four cavities all of the way up. Be careful not to overflow, but you will want to move to the next step quickly. In the next step you will want the wax to still be liquid in the molds. So, try your best to move quickly on to the next step.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Cinnamon SticksRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Cinnamon Sticks

Now, you are going to add the pieces of cinnamon sticks to the top of the wax melts. You are going to want to move quickly before the tarts begin to set up. If not, you may not be able to get the cinnamon sticks to stay put. Also, we recommend sticking one portion of the herb into the wax melt and have the other part of the cinnamon stick poking out above the wax tart. This way the cinnamon stick can be seen from the top and adds to the rustic charm of this lovely recipe.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Removing from the MoldRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Removing from the Mold

As your pillar of bliss tarts begin to set up, you will start to see how each wax melt will look. While these tarts all include the same ingredients, each one is unique and special, like a snowflake. Once the wax cools completely the wax won’t be transparent anymore, so only the herbs on top will be seen. This will leave you with just a few of these herbs poking through. This is what gives this recipe the gorgeous rustic appearance. Finally, when the wax has completely solidified you are ready to pop the wax melts out of their molds.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Curing Before Use

Although you may be anxious and excited to test out your finished product, those extra few days of curing is exactly what your wax tarts need to be at their best. You can technically use your creation immediately, as there is nothing wrong with them. However, the scent isn’t going to be right until it has a chance to cure! While your wax tarts are finished, you won’t get the absolute best results unless you give the product time to cure. It super easy to do and only takes a couple days. Just let your wax melts sit undisturbed as the fragrance oil settles in your creation. After, you will be so glad that you waited!

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Melted Snowman

One adorable thing that we noticed about this Christmas craft recipe is that it looks like a melted snowman! The cinnamon stick looks like a stick arm. Also, the juniper berries look like the coal for the buttons, mouth, and eyes. Plus, the orange peel looks like the carrot nose! I remember making snowmen with my little brother. We would make our own so we could see which one was better, but we’d end up helping each other anyway. It was always a great way to spend a snow day. While nobody is happy to see their snowman disappear, it’s really all about the fun time that you had creating your snow friend. Just like wax melts, you don’t want to melt your beautiful designs, but they smell too good not too! So, enjoy this super cute wax tart recipe that is perfect for the winter season and the holidays.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Gathering Your Pinecones

Of course, you can try to find some unscented, decorative pine cones at a store. But, it would certainly be more fun to go out and gather this part of the craft on your own. This way you have the chance to find the perfect pine cone for your ornament. This idea is especially great for kids that want to create this craft. Not only is this idea fun for kids, but it can certainly save you money from overpriced, decorative pine cones. That’s one of the beautiful things about creating pine cone ornaments, you can use the same pine cones from your yard!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Preparing the Work Area

After you have gathered all of your ingredients you can start preparing your work station. All you are going to need is a clean, flat area to create your ornament, but you are going to want to lay down something to catch the mess. So, grab either some wax paper or an old newspaper to cover your counter top. You are going to want to lay this down over your work area before you get started. This will protect the counter top from the glue and the fragrance oil. Another bonus is that laying this down will make clean up so much easier. So, you are not going to want to skip this step.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Creating the Scented Pinecone

We are going to start off by creating the pine cone portion of this recipe. Not only will this pretty pine cone ornament use the gold glitter, but this part of the holiday craft will be scented with the perfect Christmas scent, Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil. It is a wonderful blend of pine, apples and cinnamon, bayberry, holly, and a hint of vanilla. So, let’s get started!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Measuring the Liquid GluePinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Measuring the Liquid Glue

Now, we are ready to begin creating these simple Christmas ornaments. You are going to want to begin by measuring the liquid craft glue. We chose to use Elmer’s glue in our project, but any liquid craft glue that dries clear will be perfect! So, portion out about an ounce of glue into a small, glass bowl. This amount may vary slightly depending on the size of both your pine cones and plastic Easter eggs, but this is a good amount to start off with. If you happen to run out before you finish your pine cones, then you can make more later. 

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Fragrance OilPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, you are going to be adding in the wonderful fragrance oil. We chose to use our original Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil because it is a strong scent that is perfect for Christmas time. Plus, this aroma is amazing for creating homemade room scents, as it is a strong aroma. So, grab this fragrance oil and the ounce of liquid glue. You are going to add about 1-2 mL of Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil to the glue, which you can measure using a disposable pipette. Then, mix thoroughly to incorporate the scent into the glue.

Now, you are going to take your pine cones and coat the whole thing in the Sleigh Ride scented glue mixture! Although only the edges will have glitter added, you can use the glue everywhere to create a stronger scent for your home this season! The more your add, the stronger the fragrance will be in your home. Just make sure that you create enough to coat the edges and remember that you can mix up more scented glue as you need it. After your pine cone has been covered well, you are ready to move on to the next step of adding the glitter.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Rolling in the GlitterPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Rolling in the Glitter

After your liquid glue has dried we are ready for the glitter! Just sprinkle an amount of this gorgeous gold glitter on your protected work area and roll your pine cones in it. The goal for this method is to cover the outer edges of the pine cone and add some lovely shimmer. Although we did add glue to places that don’t have glitter, we didn’t necessarily waste any of the glue. This scented glue will dry clear and add to the aroma of the overall recipe. So, the extra glue will create a stronger room scenting product for your Christmas Tree!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Preparing the Plastic Easter Eggs

Now, you are ready for the second part of this lovely Christmas craft! While the freshly glittered and scented pine cones are drying, you can prepare the other half of this diy Christmas ornament. You will need to take the smaller halves of the plastic Easter eggs and completely cover them with gold glitter!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding Glue to the Plastic Easter EggsPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding Glue to the Plastic Easter Eggs

Now, you are going to get the plastic Easter eggs ready for the ornament. You are only going to be using the smaller halves of the plastic eggs for these diy pine cone christmas tree ornaments. So, take these halves of the plastic eggs and cover them in unscented glue. You can wipe out and re-add the liquid glue to the same small bowl. Then, just roll or brush the glue onto each of the plastic eggs. After, set these plastic eggs some where that they can be sprinkled with glitter without making a big mess, we chose to use a large glass bowl.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Pour on the Gold GlitterPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Pour on the Gold Glitter

Next, you are going to add the gold craft glitter. Make sure that you move fast enough that the liquid glue doesn’t dry before you’re ready, because you are going to want to have a nice, even coat of glitter. Once you are ready, simply pour the gold glitter on the glue-coated plastic eggs until they have a nice layer of sparkles. Later, these beautiful, glittery plastic eggs will be added to the bottom of the pine cones!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe After the Plastic Easter Eggs DryPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe After the Plastic Easter Eggs Dry

After the plastic eggs have been coated in glitter, just leave them to dry in their place. You are going to want to wait until both the pine cones and the plastic Easter eggs have dried completely. Depending on how thick your coat of glue was, this could take some time before you are ready to move on to the next step. But, it is worth the wait because nobody wants to smudge their glitter! So, take a break and let the glitter get settled as the glue dries.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Finishing Up the Ornament

Now that both halves of your homemade Christmas ornaments have been created, it’s time to put it altogether. So, the next part of this blog will be combining the pieces and putting the finishing touches on your gorgeous holiday decorations.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Gluing the Plastic EggPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Gluing the Plastic Egg

Once both the plastic Easter eggs and the pine cones have completely dried, you are ready to combine the two finished pieces. You will be hot gluing the plastic Easter eggs to the bottom of each of the pine cones. So, you are going to want to start off by warming up your hot glue gun. After the glue gun is ready, you will add a line of glue to the inner perimeter of one of the plastic eggs. Quickly, move on to the next step before the glue dries.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Combining the Plastic Easter Eggs with the PineconesPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Combining the Plastic Easter Eggs with the Pinecones

Finally, you are ready to combine the two pieces of your diy ornament. This step will be pretty simple, but you need to be gentle to make sure your don’t accidentally remove the glitter. So, place your plastic egg half over the bottom of your pine cone. Then, hold the two pieces together for a few moments so the hot glue has an opportunity to dry. Then, repeat the gluing and combining steps with each of the remaining pine cones. Together, the pine cone and the small, plastic egg halves will create a wonderful, sparkly ornament for your Christmas Tree!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Hanging Your DIY Christmas Tree OrnamentsPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Hanging Your DIY Christmas Tree Ornaments

Now that your homemade ornament has both its halves put together, you need to get your craft ready to hang up on the Christmas tree! So, grab either the twine or the ribbon and let’s get started. Since we chose to use the twine, we will refer to it as such during this step. Just know that you will be using the hanging device that you chose. Now, you can take your nearly finished ornament and loop the twine around the top of the pine cone. Make sure to secure the twine around the ornament. Then, make a smaller loop at the top of the twine to make sure your new Christmas decorations can be hung up on the tree this year.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Sleigh Ride

Not only is creating some homemade Christmas crafts with our Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil a fun way to celebrate this season, but taking an actual Sleigh Ride would be absolutely perfect. Nothing compares to riding on a horse drawn sleigh through the snow on a gorgeous winter day. Every year my hometown would have a Christmas festival with crafts in the library, lights down main street, hot chocolate, and the beautiful horse-drawn sleigh. There was nothing more magical than a ride in the sleigh with a warm hot chocolate and light, fluffy snow drifting from above. This lovely tradition is just one of the many that makes Christmas so wonderful!

While you can find lovely sleigh rides all throughout the United States, this website has some of the absolute best sleigh rides around.

There are a lot of benefits you can get from our chocolate face mask recipe that will really bring out the beauty in your skin!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Preparing to Create Your Face Mask

Since you are creating a product for your face, it is very important that you make some preparations to ensure there are no contaminates. Otherwise, you could end up with dirt or debris in your recipe. So, we want to prevent this as best we can. First, clean and sanitize your bowl and mixing spoon. This is most important as these utensils will have direct contact to your facial. Next, sanitize your work space. While this won’t touch your facial, anything on the counter could indirectly reach the recipe as you set down the mixing spoon between uses. Thus, cleaning both the equipment and your work space will keep your homemade facial safe enough for your to use without worry!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Weighing the Bentonite Clay PowderChocolate Facial Mask Recipe Weighing the Bentonite Clay Powder

First, we are going to prepare the Bentonite Clay Powder for your facial. So, retrieve your medium sized mixing bowl and the scale. Also, you should set your scale to grams. Then, you will tare the weight of the bowl and weigh out 224 grams of your Bentonite Clay Powder. After, you will be ready to add the next ingredient.

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Weighing the Organic Cocoa PowderChocolate Facial Mask Recipe Weighing the Organic Cocoa Powder

 

Next, we are going to be preparing the Organic Cocoa Powder for your facial recipe. This ingredient will be added to the same mixing bowl that now contains your bentonite clay powder. So, you are going to have to tare the weight of this filled bowl and add in 96 grams of the organic cocoa powder to the bowl. Be sure to mix these two ingredients together enough that everything is evenly dispersed.

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Vitamin E OilChocolate Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Vitamin E Oil

Now, we are going to add the pure vitamin E oil to your powdered mixture. Retrieve your bowl containing the bentonite clay and organic cocoa powder. Also, you will need a disposable pipette to add this ingredient. Now, you will use the disposable pipette to add the 24 drops of the Vitamin E Oil to the bowl of your powder mixture.

 

 

 

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Mixing Together the IngredientsChocolate Facial Mask Recipe Mixing Together the Ingredients

After your three ingredients have been added to the mixing bowl, it is time to blend it all together. You will need to mix everything well enough that each ingredient is dispersed evenly throughout the mixture. You are going to want the beneficial qualities of each ingredient in every facial, so be sure to mix well! This is the final time you will mix these ingredients before packaging, so make it count!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Packaging the Facial PowderChocolate Facial Mask Recipe Packaging the Facial Powder

Next, the powdered portion of this facial recipe is complete. You should make sure that everything is mixed fully! Now, you can scoop your completed mixture into the 4 oz jars. So, carefully transfer this fluffy powder to fill each of the jars. Then, put the lid on each of these filled jars. When you are finished, each of your four 4 oz Clear PET Jars should be completely filled.

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Preparing the Vegetable Glycerin Portion

After, you will be packaging the other portion of your facial mask. So, take your 1 oz Clear Bullet Bottles and fill each one with about 24 grams of the Vegetable Glycerin. Then, place one 20/410 White Disc Top Lids on each of the filled 1 oz bottles. Now, you can pair up each jar with one bottle. Each pair should be proportioned well enough to have the correct amount of ingredients to make about eight facials!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Creating the Finished Homemade Facial

Later, you will need to mix the powder and the Vegetable Glycerin together to use your facial. So, when you are ready to use one of your homemade facials retrieve a small sized mixing bowl. Now, you are going to combine your ingredients. Take a tablespoon of the powdered mixture, two tablespoons of water, and about a half teaspoon of the Vegetable Glycerin. After, you will mix this all together well until it is all the same consistency.

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Using the Homemade Facial Recipe

Finally, your facial is ready to use! Apply a thin layer of the chocolate facial to your face and let the magic begin! Now, just sit back and relax as this recipe takes care of your skin. Maybe even grab some real chocolate, which we would recommend the scrumptious Lindt chocolates, to pair with your chocolate facial as you wait. The moment is yours, so make it worth every second!

As the mask sits on your face it will begin to harden and tighten a bit. After the facial has entirely hardened you will find no more wet spots on your facial, so it is ready to come off. Now, you can wash off this chocolate facial recipe with some warm water. Finally, your face should feel refreshed and look rejuvenated!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Why We Wait to Mix in the Vegetable Glycerin

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Why would I wait to add the Vegetable Glycerin?”. I mean it seems like it would be so much easier to just mix everything now, as you already have all your crafting equipment out and ready. Then, you’d have it all ready to go when you need it. However, there are a few factors that make the nature of mixing the facial ingredients more complicated.

After you mix your ingredients, the shelf life will be short. Without a preservative, you will only have a shelf life of one week. Further, this is only the shelf life of a week if it is kept in the refrigerator. So, unless you intend on making a ton of facials immediately, this is not going to end well. If you make all of your facials now, then you will have to use all thirty two individual facials within a single week! Otherwise, the facial will begin to host bacteria and other undesirable organisms that you will not want anywhere near your face.

If you didn’t want to use it all right away, then you could add a preservative to your recipe. Now, adding a preservative is fine and will make the mixed facials last longer, but this is not your only option. There is an easier and more realistic method that will keep this facial all natural where you won’t lose most of the product. There is no need to heat your ingredients and wait for the proper temperature to add the Optiphen. Just wait to mix in the vegetable glycerin and the water until it is time to use the facial. We promise it is an easy way to make your recipe last so much longer!

Plus, all natural cosmetic businesses can sell the mixed powder and vegetable glycerin in a small kit with instructions. Each kit would contain one jar and one bottle, which would produce eight individual facial masks. In addition, this is a project you can put together in minutes! Plus, all you need to do is explain the proportion of mixing the powder, water, and vegetable glycerin! Not only will this be easier to produce, but your facial will be entirely all natural! So, your customers will feel safe using this preservative free recipe on their face. Everybody wins!

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Clean and Sanitize

Before you begin creating your own conditioner you should make sure that you clean all of your equipment as well as your work space. This will ensure that your finished product is safe to use. All you need to do is wash and sanitize your bowls, mixer, and other equipment with soap and water. This is a simple preparation that may save you the heartache of accidentally getting your product dirty. While this won’t always ruin your product, you want to keep your conditioner, as well as any other body product, as clean as you possibly can.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Creating the Double Boiler

Also, you will need to know how to create a double boiler for this recipe. This is simple to do once it is learned. So, grab your smaller pot and the larger pot. Make sure that the small one will fit comfortably inside the large one. Then, add water to your larger pot. The water level should be just high enough to reach the bottom of the small pot. Just be careful not to have the water too high, as this could boil over into the smaller pot. After your water level is right, you can heat the water on the stove top. Once the water reaches a boil, add your small pot in, which will contain the ingredients that you wish to melt. By placing your ingredients in a double boiler it prevents the oils from burning that can occur from direct heat.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Preparing the WaterHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Preparing the Water

Now, you are going to boil some distilled water. You can have this heating as you fill your tea bag. This way you will save time! So, fill your medium sized pot with plenty of distilled water. You will need at least 425 grams of boiled water, so make sure that you have more than this amount in your pot. Remember, a portion of this water is going to evaporate. This means that you are going to have to add more than the amount you need. Once your water reaches a boil watch the temperature. You will need the water to be at or above 180 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. This will destroy any bacteria that may be in your water.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Melting Your Butters and OilsHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Melting Your Butters and Oils

While your water is boiling, you can weigh out your butters and oils. So, grab your small bowl and the scale. Now, weigh 25 grams of the Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams of the BTMS 25, 20 grams of the Safflower Oil, and 5 grams of the Vitamin E Oil into your small bowl. Melt these ingredients in a double boiler. After this all melts, set on low so it doesn’t drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You are going to need these melted and between 120 and 140 degrees when your Hibiscus Flowers infusion is at a similar temperature.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Recipe Filling the Tea BagHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Filling the Tea Bag

Next, you are going to fill up your tea bag with an herb. To do this you need to get the Hibiscus Flowers Whole and a single tea bag. Then, scoop your Hibiscus Flowers into the tea bag until it reaches almost the top. Just make sure that you are able to close the tea bag after it is filled. You want to have enough of your dried flowers in the bag to create a Hibiscus Flower infusion, but not too much. If you can’t securely close the tea bag, then your conditioner can end up with small bits of flowers. While this won’t hurt your recipe, you will have little chunks in your product. So, just make sure you can shut your tea bag all the way!

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Weigh Out the Distilled WaterHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Weigh Out the Distilled Water

After your water has been at or above the specified temperature for 20 minutes, you will separate out the portion that you need. So, grab your deep bowl or container and your scale. Also, make sure that your scale is set to grams. Now, weigh out 425 grams of your boiled water into your chosen container. This will be used to create the Hibiscus Flowers infusion and will act as the water phase for your conditioner. So, it is important to weigh out the right amount. Furthermore, those that ran out of boiled water can just boil some additional water the same way as before. It is a bit time consuming, but is worth the effort as it will reduce contamination.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Creating the Hibiscus Flowers InfusionHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Creating the Hibiscus Flowers Infusion

Now, you are ready to make your herbal infusion! This is where you create a sort of tea with your herbs. So, the properties of the herbs can be transferred into the water. Thus, you can utilize all the benefits of Hibiscus Flowers without including the actual flowers or the powder. Simply add the filled tea bag to your water. Then, let the bag of Hibiscus Flowers Whole soak in the water, which will begin to turn to a reddish hue! Make sure to leave the tea bag in the water until the infusion has reached the right temperature.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Checking the TemperatureHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Checking the Temperature

The temperatures of both the oil based ingredients and water based ingredients are extremely important for the next few steps. Let’s go over this a bit before we move on so that anyone who has not made this type of product before can understand the importance. Before you can combine your oils and water they must be between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. It must be above 120 degrees so the oils and water will properly emulsify, or mix together. You do not want your oils and water in the conditioner to separate once it is finished. However, the temperature can’t be above 140 degrees or the Optiphen Preservative will burn off. So, make sure to keep an eye on the temperature of your mixture. 

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Combine Your Two MixturesHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Combine Your Two Mixtures

Next, you will combine your water based mixture and your oil based mixture. So, you can go ahead and add your oils to your hibiscus flower infusion. After all your melted oils have been added to your water based mixture you are ready to move on to the next step. But, you need to move quickly at this point to make sure the oils and water emulsify properly.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Emulsifying ProcessHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Emulsifying Process

Now, you are going to use the stick blender to mix everything together. Quickly grab your hand held mixer and blend your water and oil based mixtures together. As you work the mixture should start to become a creamy sort of consistency. Also, you will notice a light pink color. This is the emulsification process, which is where your oils and butters combine to form a single mixture. If you have mixed well at the right temperature, then your mixture should not separate into oil and water. After you feel that you have blended everything together well, check the temperature of your mixture.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Adding Fragrance and Optiphen PreservativeHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Adding Fragrance and Optiphen Preservative

Once your mixture has reached about 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you can add in your fragrance oil and the optiphen. So, pour in 26 grams of the NG Viva la Juicee Fragrance Oil and 5 grams of the Optiphen Preservative. Now, mix these ingredients into your conditioner well. You should use the handheld mixer or stick blender again to make sure these ingredients are fully incorporated. After, your mixture will be complete! All you have to do now is allow your conditioner to cool to room temperature.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Filling Your BottlesHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Filling Your Bottles

Finally, you are ready to package up your Hibiscus Conditioner Recipe! So, grab your gallon Ziploc bag. Then, fill up your Ziploc with your entire homemade hair conditioner. Get your 16 oz. White PET Bullet Bottles ready. Then, put the corner of your bag over the bottle and cut the tip with your scissors. Now, fill up your bottle and be careful not to go to fast as it is easy to overfill your bottle. Also, you can lightly tap your bottle on your work surface to reduce air bubbles and better fill your bottle. After your bottle is filled, you can put on your White Lotion Pumps 24/410. Now, your conditioner is finished!

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Using Your ProductHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Using Your Product

Now that your product is completed it is ready to use! Your conditioner is very simple to use. Just use your homemade conditioner the same way that you would use any store bought conditioner. This diy daily conditioner can be used every day and would be perfect for an everyday moisturizer. Like any conditioner, it will work better if you leave the product in longer. For example, you can leave the conditioner in your hair as you shave or wash the rest of your body. This will allow the ingredients to sink deeper into your hair.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Before Using Your Homemade ProductHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Before Using Your Homemade Product

Personally, I used this product in my own hair and loved the results. I naturally have strawberry blonde hair. While my hair is mostly blonde, I have some red hair sprinkled in. I wanted to use this recipe to bring out my red hair and lead to a more of a red tint. So, I used my homemade hibiscus conditioner every night for a full week. The only thing that I changed is swapping out my own store bought conditioner with this homemade hair care product! I love the scent and enjoyed how much softer my hair felt. However, I focused mostly on the impact the Hibiscus has on the color of my hair.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner After Using the Product for a WeekHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner After Using the Product for a Week

This hair product worked exactly how I wanted it to! The lovely Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner was perfect for achieving the color that I wanted. While this conditioner recipe won’t dye your hair bright red, it is perfect for bringing out the natural beauty of red hair! While I am not a full redhead, I do have enough highlights to notice a change in this part of my hair. Using this conditioner brought out the natural red tones in my hair and led to a deeper red tint to my hair. I truly love this conditioner!

The Vegan Lip Balm Kit is a recipe that is silky and extremely moisturizing, like many other Nature’s Garden lip balm recipes.

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.

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!

A Spoon

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Amounts Needed

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.

 

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Shimmer and Shine

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.

 

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Adding the Lip Balm to the Containers

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Adding the Lip Balm to the Containers

 

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.

 

Homemade Lip Balm Kits Using Your Lip Balm

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 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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
