Lavender Mint Bath Bomb RecipeLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe

It’s spring time! Well, kind of spring time. We had a couple of nice, warm days here in Ohio. What makes you think of spring? Some of our thoughts turn to spring planting. Others think of spring clothes or just looking forward to the bright colors of Mother Nature. I look forward to warmer weather, sunny days and the fresh smells from flowers and newly cut grass. However, at Nature’s Garden, our creative team starts to think of spring recipes and our Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe is a perfect example. With its soft pastel colors and fresh, crisp fragrance, this bath bomb will make you think and smell spring immediately!

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: The Ingredients

First off, before we get started, let’s talk about some of the ingredients we are using in this recipe. Most of your bath bombs use only two basic “bath bomb” ingredients. Baking Soda, Citric Acid. However, we added an extra ingredient into this recipe, Sodium Cocoyl Isethinate, or SCI. SCI is a gentle sufecant derived from coconut and it is used in a variety of cosmetic recipes. Sodium Cocoyl Isethioniate (SCI) gives your soaps, shampoo, bath bombs and bubble bars their bubble action. Most of all, bath bombs need some skin-nourishing oil added in! We chose Jojoba Oil. This oil has remarkable absorption and moisturizing qualities. This bath bomb is going to leave your skin feeling soft and silky after a nice, long soak in the tub!

Our fragrance oil inspiration is our Lavender Mint WOW.  Anybody in the bath and body business will know that lavender is a popular herb known for the soothing and calming effects it can have. Lavender, which is a very down to earth, natural fragrance, however, it can be a bit overwhelming by itself. With a touch of mint added in you have a wonderfully balanced fragrance that is bright yet subtle, crisp yet soft. This bath bomb is a perfect showcase for this fragrance oil. Lavender Mint WOW is an wonderful verdant scent of earthy lavender flowers and fresh peppermint and spearmint leaves! With soft colors of violet, green and white, this pretty, little bath bomb will be a perfect addition to your spring or summer bath and body line!

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Prepare Your Work Space and Equipment

Before you begin creating you want to make sure your work area and all the equipment you are using is clean. This will prevent any unwanted particles or bacteria from getting into your bath bombs. Also, make sure you have you have enough room to work in. We highly recommend wearing an apron to protect your clothing and gloves, glasses, and a mask. In addition, you will want to have your Witch Hazel bottles in a spray bottle. Witch Hazel is used to help bind ingredients with little to no action so it’s important to have that handy and ready to go. Water will not be helpful in this recipe and as a side note, this recipe is best prepared in a non-humid climate. Like I stated above, bath bombs are activated by water and simple moisture in the air can slightly activate these guys.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry IngredientsLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

Are you ready to get started?  So, in the first bowl is going to be your dry ingredients. Take your scale, making sure it is set to grams, and weigh out 166 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 512 grams Citric Acid, and 1,120 grams of Baking Soda. Then using your gloved hands, mix the ingredients together, breaking up any clumps as you go. Once these are mixed well, set this bowl aside.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet IngredientsLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you can combine the wet ingredients together. So, in a separate bowl, with your scale still set to grams, weigh out 18 grams of Jojoba oil and the 16 grams of Lavender Mint Wow Fragrance Oil. Mix this together well using your mixing spoon or even a whisk.

 

 

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Wet and Dry IngredientsLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Next, we can combine our wet and dry ingredients together. Slowly add the oils to your dry. For the record, if you happen to get a mild reaction when you add the wet to the dry, don’t panic! It will calm down once you get more dry mixed in. Finally, use your gloved hands to mix the ingredients together. You want to be sure the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture. This bowl can be set aside until later.

 

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating the DoughLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating the Dough

Now that your base mixture is combined, you can separate the dough so it can be colored. You are going to separate the bath bomb dough into 3 equal portions and there is no distinct weight for each portion so go ahead and eyeball it. Two bowls will be colored with our FUN Soap Colorants and one bowl will remain un-colored.

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Violet ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Violet Color

Now we can add our colorant! Tare out your scale and to the first bowl, add in 9 grams of Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Then using your gloved hands you will mix the color fully and evenly into your dough until you have achieved a nice, pale violet color. You can set this portion aside for the moment.

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Green ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Green Color

Next, let’s mix the green! Tare out your scale and in your second bowl add 12 grams of Kelly Green FUN Soap colorant. Again, using gloved hands, mix the green colorant in thoroughly and evenly until you have a nice, pale shade of green. Now you can set this bowl aside.

 

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Molding the Bath Bombs

There are many types and shapes of bath bomb molds out there that can be used.  Virtually anything can be used as a bath bomb mold! Silicone molds, soap molds, shallow jars or deep lids.  Shop around your local craft store or even look around your kitchen and let your imagination take over! You can make all shapes and sizes of bath treats, however, please keep in mind that you need the mold to have the ability to release easily. With this recipe, we kept it easy and chose a simple, round plastic fillable Christmas ornament that you can find in any craft store.

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Starting With Your First ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Starting With Your First Color

Next you can start putting these bath bombs together! You may start with any color you wish, however we started with the green dough. Plus you will be using the Witch Hazel now.  Please note, that it is important to not spray the dough with too much of the Witch Hazel. Over spraying can cause the bath bomb ingredients to activate and as a result your bath bomb will not stay together. Now go ahead and spritz your dough with the witch hazel. Using your hands,give it a nice mix. You are looking for the consistency of damp sand. Take one half of the mold. Next, you will take a small amount of dough and press it firmly into the ornament half.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding on the Second Layer of ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding on the Second Layer of Color

Next, we can move onto the second color. Again, chose any color you wish. We went with white. Give the mix a spritz of Witch Hazel and mix it well making sure it is the right consistency. Next, take a small amount and press it firmly on top of the first layer.

 

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding on the Third Layer of ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding on the Third Layer of Color

Next, you are going to spritz your third layer of dough with Witch Hazel so give it a quick mix, making sure it looks like damp sand.  Take a small amount. Add it to the second layer. Fill to the top as full as you can get it without it overflowing. Make sure to press the dough firmly down.

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Second Half of the Mold

Now we are going to work on the second half of the mold. So, repeat the process of layering as we did in the first half.  With your first color, take a small amount and press it firmly into other half of the mold.

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Second Layer of Color

Move on to the second layer by taking a small bit of dough and pressing it firmly onto the first layer.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Third Layer of ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Third Layer of Color

Finally, you are going to finish off the second half of the mold with your third layer of color. So, pull off a small amount of dough and push it firmly on top of the previous layer. Next you will be putting the two halves together. So first, give each half of the mold a light spray of Witch Hazel then press the two halves together tightly. Lastly, you will want to place the bath bombs in an area where they will not be disturbed or roll around and let them rest for at least 24 hours. In addition, make sure that the bombs are in a humid-free zone.  Now you can continue building the remaining molds with the same layering process. This recipe should allow for six medium sized bath bombs.

 

See how easy making bath bombs can be? The ingredients are simple and they can be found in your local grocery store! Plus, the kids can even help with making them since there are no hazardous materials used! With a little creativity and inspiration, the possibilities are endless!  We hope you enjoyed this newest edition to our bath bomb recipe collection. We are sure you will love the scented balance of the soft, earthy lavender and the bright, crisp scent of mint combined. These bath bombs will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Plus, the scent of Lavender Mint WOW will leave your bathroom smelling like a spa!

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb: Dos and Don’ts of Bath Bombs

In conclusion, I have included  a tiny list of reminders on how to treat your bath bombs after they are made!

Do remember to keep them out of the humidity! The littlest bit of moisture in the air can cause your bath bombs to go off into a fizzy display! Not good from a selling standpoint! Consider airtight containers or glass jars with lids as a display option. Furthermore, bath bombs can shrink wrapped or even placed in cellophane bags and tied tightly with a pretty ribbon or twist tie.  You will want to wrap them right away.

Do use your bath bombs withing a few months of making or receiving them. The fresher the bath bomb the better the bubble and fizz!

Do let your bombs completely set up. Do not attempt to take them out of their molds yet! Your bombs should come out of the mold easily. Simply use the tabs at the top of the mold to pull the two sides apart being careful in removing them.

Don’t use craft glitter in any of your bath bomb creations. Always use a cosmetic grade glitter.

Kaolin Clay is a perfect addition to sugar scrubs, salt scrubs and facial masks. Like most clays, Kaolin helps cleanse the skin and remove toxins. If you are creating soap, this clay is useful in being a fragrance fixative.

Below, we will talk about the many ways you can utilize Kaolin Clay powder in many creations. We will also share some popular recipes that use kaolin clay. You may find that if you are having trouble with a recipe you are using, or just wanting to find a new ingredient to enhance an old recipe, give the following a read.

14 Ways To Use Arrowroot Powder14 Ways To Use Arrowroot Powder

Arrowroot Powder is one of the most versatile products in the market today. It can be used in anything from cooking to all types of bath products, such as, soap, bath bombs, cosmetics,deodorants, lotions and even in cleaning products.  The list of possibilities are endless. Below, we have 14 ways to use arrowroot powder. We hope you are able to be inspired to create some fun, and even some natural products to add to you line of products or even for just your personal use. Before we get started though, let’s talk a little about where Arrowroot Powder comes from and what exactly Arrowroot is.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: How It's Made14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: How It’s Made

Maranta arundinacea, or more commonly known as arrowroot, dates back to more than 7,000 years ago,  when this powder was first discovered as being used in food by the Caribbean Arawak people. This plant is native to tropical areas such as, western Brazil and Guyana. However, this multi functional root is cultivated in such countries such as, Australia, South Africa and the West Indies.

The powder itself comes from the rhizomes, or the roots, of the plant. The roots are first washed, and then cleaned of the paper-like scales. The scales must be carefully removed before extracting the starch because they impart a disagreeable flavor. Once the scales are completely removed, the roots are washed again, drained and reduced to a pulp by beating them in mortars or grinding them with a wheel rasp. The milky liquid that is obtained is then passed through a coarse cloth. The pure starch, which is insoluble, is allowed to settle at the bottom. The wet starch is then dried in the sun or in a drying house. The result is a starchy powder, ready to be packed in airtight containers and shipped.

Arrowroot Powder can be used in everything from cooking, cosmetics to even medicinal uses. Arrowroot is starchy and makes a wonderful natural, thickening alternative to flour or cornstarch. This powder is fat free, gluten free, and low in salt. You can treat sunburns, blemishes and rashes with arrowroot. When used in cosmetics, bath and body products, it works as a thickening agent. It is also good at absorbing moisture and aids in keeping your skin dry.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe

Our first recipe using arrowroot is our Pink Lemonade Scrub. Scrubs are incredibly popular nowadays.  Salt or sugar, pumice or black walnut hulls, scrubs are an easy way to help slough away dead skin cells without being harsh on your skin. This recipe is not only fresh and colorful, it’s full of skin softening ingredients. Sugar is the main ingredient and we all generally have sugar in our house. Cocoa butter, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E and Arrowroot Powder are just a few. The scent inspiration for this scrub was our Raspberry Lemonade fragrance oil that smells true to its name. Tart lemons, raspberries and sugar.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe

Another skin care product that is all the rage these days is charcoal. Charcoal is awesomely natural at detoxifying and exfoliating the skin. There are so many products out in the market using charcoal in masks, nose strips and scrubs, but it’s easy to make your own! Our Activated Charcoal Scrub is a definite in the natural department. The skin loving ingredients include, shea and mango butter, macadamia nut oil, coconut oil, activated charcoal and of course, arrowroot powder to help bind it all together. We chose our Black Linen & Amber fragrance oil. This scent is a unisex blend of crisp cotton, white blossoms with undertones of musk, amber and patchouli. A very deep, sexy fragrance.

 

12 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Shaving Soap For Sensitive Skin14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Shaving Soap For Sensitive Skin

I love shaving soap. It lasts so much longer than the shaving cream you get in a can. It is super easy to make and with 3 bars, you will have shaving soap for a while. This Shaving Soap For Sensitive Skin uses our Shea Butter Melt and Pour soap. There are no detergents or SLS in this soap which makes it perfect for those that have skin that will easily break out. We used arrowroot powder that will help leave your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. We used a simple fragrance oil for this soap. Our Natural Vanilla Infusion (35 fold) oil. Smells yummy and natural. Perfect for such a simple recipe.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe

Our next recipe is a sugar scrub that uses brown sugar instead of the usual white sugar. No matter! You get the same exfoliating benefits with this Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub just the same as you would with the white. We have used Shea and cocoa butters, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed and Coconut Oil, and some Vitamin E. We used our arrowroot powder to help give this scrub a thickened consistency, but my favorite part is the Vanilla Powder that we used. This powder is the yummiest smelling vanilla you can have!  To double the vanilla impact, we chose our Vanilla Extract fragrance oil that smells exactly like the kind used in baking. Crisp, vanilla with a soft touch of tang to it.

Did you know milk is actually good for your skin? Not just for drinking, but for soaking in? It softens, hydrates, and can soothe irritated skin. This Fizzy Milk Bath is perfect to soak in after a long, hard day at work. We have combined powdered milk, arrowroot powder,  baking soda, and citric acid (for the fizz). In addition, we have added chamomile flowers and lavender flowers. Their fragrance is very calming and relaxing to the soul. The fragrance oil we chose is a popular one here at Nature’s Garden. NG Baby Bee Buttermilk Type. A soft, fruity sweet fragrance that is a duplication of Burt’s Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion.

Both powders are not only perfect for natural coloring, but they have skin healthy properties also.  and since we used our Watermelon Fragrance Oil, they will smell good enough to eat! We suggest you don’t though. This scrub may have sugar in it, but it’s still not edible.

Best Wine Fragrance OilsBest Wine Fragrance Oils

Up until the last 20 years, wine was not very popular. Only in recent years has a “wine-craze” taken over in society. Availability and affordability are the number one reasons why this alcoholic beverage has taken a close second to the sale and production of beer. Nature’s Garden is totally hip to the popularity of “vino”. We have listed below, our best wine fragrance oils.  Some of our fragrances have recipes that incorporate actual wine and of course the fragrance itself to create an amazing bath and body product. How about creating a gift basket of lotion, soap and/or a body scrub all using wine for clients or family members who are wine lovers?  So, go ahead and raise your glass to learning about all our wine-inspired fragrances and their recipes! Cheers!

Did you know? Wine has been around for centuries! Dating back as far as 4100 B.C. the world’s oldest winery was discovered in Armenia. There are basically 5 types of wine; Red, White, Rose, Fruit and Mead (which is a honey wine). These types of wine are based on the grapes that were used to create. Each wine is named after the type of grape that was used to create it.

Best Wine Fragrance Oils: Burgundy Rose

Our first wine fragrance is Burgundy Rose. With this fragrance oil by Natures Garden, romanticism, luxury, and culture combine to produce this luxurious fragrance blend. Sensual burgundy rose with fresh white floral nuances, blend with exquisite burgundy wine, and warmed by precious musk and apple wood. Finally, this rose fragrance can withstand the saponification process without losing its authenticity.

This fragrance did well in our cold process soap testing. There was no ricing, separating or discoloring. There was some accelerating so soaping at room temperature is strongly suggested. The scent held up nice and strong throughout its cure. Burgundy Rose also did well with candles and in bath and body products.

We have a wonderful recipe that uses this romantic fragrance oil. Our Burgundy Rose Bath Milk Soak recipe incorporates powdered goat’s milk. Oat Straw powder with an added touch of rose petals to help boost the floral fragrance. Oat Straw is know for it’s skin rejuvenating and softening properties so it is a perfect addition to this recipe.

Best Wine Fragrances: Cabernet Sauvignon Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Cabernet Sauvignon Fragrance Oil

Cabernet Sauvignon is a very popular seller here at Nature’s Garden. Our fragrance oil is the essence of a sweet aroma of wild grapes enhanced with hints of strawberries and sweet sugary notes with a light alcoholic background. A wonderful aroma of red sweet Cabernet wine. 

This fragrance oil had a decent test run in cold process soap. There was no ricing or accelerating, however, we did experience separating when we placed the batter in the mold. It did combine back together as it solidified. Due to the fact that this fragrance oil has a high vanillin content. We suggest using our Vanilla White color stabilizer to help prevent this. This fragrance oil did well in other bath and body products and in all our candle wax testing.

Do you know? The wine itself is a bold and assertive full bodied wine, best paired with any type of meat dish, barring the spicy ones. Grilled meats and vegetables, hearty stews and meaty types of fish, such as Ahi Tuna or Swordfish, go well with this wine.

 

Best Wine Fragrances: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil was designed to capture not just the wine itself, but also the essence of the Christmas season. Cabernet has a classically deep, red color and displays a lovely bouquet of berries and oak. A full-bodied wine with good varietal character and power, it offers rich cherry flavors with excellent balance and a long finish. We have combined this lovely aroma with hints of Christmas time, and created our version of Christmas Cabernet.

Christmas Cabernet did very well in our cold process soap testing. There was no ricing, separating or accelerating. This fragrance oil has a slight vanillin content. It caused our soap to discolor to an olive/tan color. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer would be helpful in preventing discoloring.

We liked this scent so much that we created a beautiful Wine Sugar Scrub recipe that not only has Christmas Cabernet as the star fragrance, but we also used a splash of real wine to help enhance the skin loving qualities of this scrub. This recipe is chock full of moisturizing components such as, cocoa and shea butter, olive oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil and Vitamin E. That’s just the beginning! Your skin will be soft, supple and moisturized, not to mention smelling sweet and yummy!

Do you know? Cabernet is a type of grape that is used in red wine making. The addition of Sauvignon came from an accidental cross-breeding of the wine grapes; Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon was born!

 

Best Wine Fragrances: Merlot Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Merlot Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden has velvety nuances of plums, apples, red raspberries and strawberries which  combine with a light alcoholic and spicy background.

Merlot did wonderful in our cold process soap testing! A soaper’s dream come true! No ricing, separating, or accelerating and no discoloring! The fragrance stayed strong and true throughout it’s cure.

Best Wine Fragrances: Merlot Fragrance OilThis fragrance oil is perfect in our Wine Cold Process soap recipe! This soap has skin loving oils such as, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil and Sunflower Oil. We also incorporated wine in the recipe to be used as part of the water portion! A perfect addition for a true wine inspired soap!

Do you know?  Wine (and grape juice) contain a high content of Resveratrol? Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in the skin of red grapes that has excellent antioxidant qualities. When used in cosmetics, this micronutrient can help protect the skin from UV damage, and reduces the occurrence of age spots. Resveratrol also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and is used in products that fight acne. This amazing product is used in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cosmetic products, and provides anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce swelling.

 

Best Wine Fragrances: NG Napa Valley Harvest Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: NG Nappa Valley Harvest Fragrance Oil

NG Nappa Valley oil by Natures Garden is a beautiful duplication of the Yankee candle scent.  This fragrance is reminiscent of the cultural heritage surrounding Napa Valley, and the effervescence of rich, aged wine. The scent is a complex blend of aged wine, lilac, vanilla, violets, and lilies, with a light musky base note. A definite complex fragrance that is very pleasing to the nose!

NG Nappa Valley Harvest is a winner when it came to our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, separating, or acceleration. It did discolor to a light butter color so you may chose to use our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help prevent this. This fragrance also did very well in our bath and body product testing and in our candle wax testing!

Do you know? September through November is when the actual Napa Valley Harvest season is. Harvest season is a busy, bustling time with the season’s harvest being brought in and new batches of wine that are being made. Visitors not only get to sample the varieties of the wines that are made, but you can also participate in the picking and the smashing of the grapes!

 

Best Wine Fragrances: Shiraz Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Shiraz Fragrance Oil

The pronunciation of Shiraz is taken from the original name “Syrah” but for one reason or another, Australians adopted the well known term Shiraz.  The aromas and flavors of Shiraz vary with wine style and region, but are usually blackberry, plums, and pepper in varying degrees dependent on growing conditions.  Natures Garden’s Shiraz fragrance is reminiscent of this prestigious wine.

Shiraz Fragrance Oil did beautifully in our cold process testing. With no accelerating, ricing, seperating or discoloring, it is another soaper’s dream! The scent stayed true and strong througout it’s cure time. Shiraz also did well in all our candle waxes and in bath and body products. With a fragrance oil that does so well, we had to create a recipe with it!

Best Wine Fragrances: Shiraz Fragrance OilOur Wine Lotion recipe is loaded with some amazing skin loving ingredients. Jojoba oil, Cocoa Butter, and Vitamin E to name just a few. Of course we did include our Reservatrol Powder which you know is a wonderful for aging skin!

 

Best Wine Fragrance Oils: Tuscan Wine Fragrance Oil

If you’ve ever dined at an Italian restaurant and drank wine from a flask that was wrapped in straw, you’ve enjoyed Tuscany Chianti wine.  Natures Garden’s Tuscan Wine fragrance is a true luxury fragrance beginning with top notes of black grapes, strawberry, and red wine; followed by middle notes of white flowers and sweet cinnamon; and sits on dry wood notes.

Tuscan Wine did beautifully with cold process soap testing. It had no ricing, separating or accelerating. It did discolor to an olive brown, so Vanillin White Color Stabilizer may be used to help prevent this. The scent retention during and after its cure time was amazing and strong!

Do you know? The straw wrapped wine bottle of Chianti is called a “Fiasco” which in Italian means: bottle or flask.

 

White Zinfandel Wine Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: White Zinfandel Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden has the aroma of fruity dry pink wine with undertones of red raspberries, currents, strawberries and rose petals with a light alcoholic background. Zinfandel is the type of grape that is used to make this incredibly popular wine. The “White” part is actually a method of making the wine itself, hence the name White Zinfandel.

 

White Zinfandel tested positive in cold process soap making. With no acceleration, ricing or separation, it is a good soap to play with! No discoloring either which makes this fragrance oil perfect! The scent retention in all bath and body products, candle waxes and even in soaping stayed very strong and true with no fading!

Best Wine Fragrances: White Zinfandel Fragrance OilNature’s Garden created this fun Wine Gel Wax candle recipe using our popular White Zinfandel. This candle is incredibly easy to make using wine glasses as your container and our red Spectrum candle dye. You will have some fun candles to display for any kind of celebration in no time!

Do you know? Back in 1975, Sutter Home’s White Zinfandel experienced a failure which resulted in the White Zinfandel as we know it today? The original wine had a “stuck fermentation” which is a problem that occurs when the yeast in the wine dies out before consuming all the sugar. This accidental juice was set aside and several weeks later, the winemaker tasted it, preferring the result, which was sweet and pink. It was originally called Cabernet Blanc, but eventually the name White Zinfandel was adopted.

 

Best Wine Fragrance Oils: Muscadine Fragrance Oil

Muscadine is a fragrance oil by Natures Garden that is rich in a  wonderful aroma of fresh grapes, blackberries, and woodsy base notes. Much like the wine itself.

This fragrance oil did well in our cold process soap processing. There was no accelerating, separating, or ricing. Despite the fact that there is zero vanillin in the oil, it will discolor to a dark cream. Vanilla White Color stabilizer will not prevent this from happening. Muscadine also did well in candles and in bath and body products for scent retention.

Muscadine grapes are considered America’s “first grape”. They are commonly grown in the hotter, dryer regions of the States. The resulting wine from muscadine grapes result in a sweet, red wine mostly for the reason that winemakers may add sugar to the wine. This wine is known to have a taste of ripe banana, apple, lime peel plus a scent of rubber cement. Wait! What? Rubber Cement? Well, they do say Muscadine wine is an acquired taste so there you go!

Giraffe Bubble Bar RecipeGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe

Did you know? The CEO of Nature’s Garden, Deborah Ward and her love for giraffes is the inspiration behind this creative and unique bubble bar? Bubble bars are a fun way to have a nice long soak in a warm tub. Simply, crumble up your bubble bar into some warm water and enjoy the abundance of bubbles that fill your tub! Whether you create this for personal use, friends and family or are just looking for a new addition to your line of bath and body products, we at Nature’s Garden hope you will enjoy creating our newest recipe to join the bubble bar family! Enjoy our Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe!

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Let’s talk About the Ingredients

Before starting on our recipe, we’ll talk about some of the ingredients we are using. The first ingredient is what gives the bubble bar its bubbles! Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, or SCI.  This gentle surfactant is derived from coconut. It is a foaming and cleansing agent that will leave your skin silky and smooth!

Baking soda is best know for it’s cleaning and deodorizing properties. This gentle alkaline is amazing at leaving the skin soft and smooth, as well as your hair too!

Cream of tartar will give your product a light and fluffy feeling. It acts as a stabilizer and helps the other ingredients adhere to each other.

Corn Starch is the perfect ingredient to help sooth irritated skin and it also leaves your skin soft! The fragrance we chose was our Cucumber Fragrance Oil. This is a popular seller here at Nature’s Garden. True cucumber scent with an undertone of violet.

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Other Ingredients Needed

  • Mixing Bowls (you will need 2)
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Parchment Paper or Silicone Baking Mat
  • Scale
  • Knife
  • Rolling Pin

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Total Weights and Amounts

  • 410 grams (2 cups) Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
  • 460 grams (2 cups) Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda
  • 224 grams (2/3 cup) Cream of Tartar

  • 6 drops Red Oxide Fun Soap Colorant

Note: While we give you both weight and volume measurements, we highly recommend using a scale as the weight measurements will be more precise amounts.

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Prepping Your Supplies and Work Area

As with any recipe you should always prep your supplies and work area. This helps in creating your craft without stopping to look for your ingredients. First thing is to clean your work space and ensure that you have enough room to work and lay your dough down. Next, give your utensils and scale a quick clean with some soap and water. Lastly, have all your ingredients ready for measuring and withing easy reach! For sanitary reasons go ahead and put your rubber safety gloves on.  Just a few preventative steps will help things move along smoothly!

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry Ingredients

Our first step will be measuring and combining our dry ingredients. You will need a large mixing bowl and your scale. Set your scale to grams.  Next, weigh out 410 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 460 grams of Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda, 224 grams of Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of Corn Starch. Give these ingredients a nice mixing with your hands, breaking up any clumps as you go.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet Ingredients

Next comes the wet stuff! You will need another mixing bowl ( or you can simply add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl) and your gram scale. Now weigh out 200 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 24 grams of Sesame Seed Oil and 14 grams of Cucumber Fragrance Oil.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Let’s add the wet and dry ingredients together! If you have mixed your wet ingredients separately go ahead and dump them in with your dry. If you add your wet straight to the dry you can start mixing with your hands making sure that you are breaking up any lumps as you go. Mix until you have the right consistency (you should have a nice, smooth workable dough). If your dough is to crumbly after mixing together, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. Be careful to not add too much or the bubble bar will not set up properly.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

The third step in our recipe will be separating the bubble bar dough. For this you will need your 2 mixing bowls. You will divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Each portion will be a different color. We have included a color chart to help you achieve the correct color for the spots and the “skin” of the giraffe.

Bowl 1:

  • Brown Oxide- 6 drops
  • Orange Oxide- 3 drops
  •  Black Oxide- 6 drops
  •  Red Oxide- 6 drops

Bowl 2:

  • Yellow Oxide- 3 drops

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Brown Colored PortionGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Brown Colored Portion

Now that your dough is separated, let’s start adding color.  We will work on the spots and inner color of the bubble bar. To the first bowl, add your 6 drops of Brown Oxide, 3 drops of Orange Oxide, 6 drops of Black Oxide and 6 drops of Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. With your gloved hands mix the colorant into your dough until you have achieved an orange brown color.  Roll the dough into a ball and set it aside, for now.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Yellow Colored PortionGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Yellow Colored Portion

Next, let’s create the “skin” color of the giraffe. For this you will add 3 drops of Yellow Oxide FUN Soap colorant to your second bowl of dough. With clean gloved hands mix this colorant into your dough until you have a nice, pale yellow color. 

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Getting Ready to Roll the Layers

Now that our dough is separated and colored, we are ready to start rolling the layers. For this step you will use your silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Dust whichever you have chosen to use with some baking soda. This will help keep the dough from sticking when it is time to roll the dough. You should also dust your rolling pin with some baking soda to help prevent sticking.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First Layer

Our first layer will be the yellow layer. Go ahead and take your yellow dough ball and lay it in the center of the surface of your mat or paper. Now roll your ball into a flat, rectangular shape.  You will want this layer about 1/4 inch in thickness.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second Layer

Next up is our Orange brown layer. Before you start rolling, however, you need to pull of about 30 grams of the dough and set this aside. This portion will be for the spots. Place the remaining dough in the center of the yellow rectangle dough and start rolling this layer out. You may add some baking soda to your rolling pin before you start to prevent sticking. Roll this layer out to the size or as close to the size of the yellow layer and at 1/4 inch thick. Once you have finished, you will be all set to move onto rolling the bubble bar dough into a loaf.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling Up The Bubble Bar

Now that your layers are rolled out, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. Turn your silicone mat or parchment paper so that the mat or paper is vertical. Lift up on the edge of the paper or mat that is closest to your body. Begin to carefully roll the dough in the same way you would a pumpkin roll. Slowly roll the dough evenly as you go, watching to make sure everything stays lined up.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spotsGiraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spots

Now that your dough is in its rolled up completely, we will begin using the orange brown colored dough we set aside to create our “spots”. Giraffe spots are not perfect in size and shape. This is the look you will want to go for. Pull off irregular size pieces of the reserved dough and add it to the yellow portion of your bubble bar. (Having trouble getting a good pattern in your head? Try Googling “giraffe” and find a pattern you can follow!)  Once your loaf is completely covered you will be ready to slice it up into individual bars.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished ProductGiraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished Product

Let’s cut this loaf into slices! This recipe will make about 8 slices, depending on how thick you choose to slice your loaf. Using a sharp knife, slice the bubble bar into 1-2 inch slices. Once your loaf is completely sliced, lay the portions out on a flat surface to set up. Our bubble bars took approximately 48-72 hours to set up completely. This may take longer, depending on the climate of your  environment.

Your Giraffe Bubble Bar is ready to use! When it’s bath time, simply crumble a slice of bar under warm, running bath water and enjoy the bubbles that will froth up into your tub and have a nice, long soak! You will emerge from your bath smelling sweet, fresh and feeling soft and clean!

 

Did You Know?Did You Know?

Have you ever looked at the beauty of a giraffe? I mean, really watched them when you visit a zoo?  They are amazing creatures! Majestic in their movements, they roam the open grasslands in small groups. A giraffe’s height is both an advantage and a disadvantage. While towering at a height ranging from 14 to 18 feet tall they have the ability to spot predators. Their height helps them eat from the leaves of trees since the disadvantage in their height is bending down. It is incredibly difficult for them and it leaves them in a vulnerable state to be attacked.  Luckily, giraffes only need to drink once every several days since most of their water intake is from the leaves they consume. They can also run a steady 35 miles an hour over short distances and comfortably at 10 miles per hour over longer distances. 

Giraffes are truly beautiful animals and their eyelashes! They are to die for! Another fun giraffe fact is that a group of giraffes are called a tower! Kind of fitting, right? Towers usually consist of females and babies, however genders will vary and they can come and go as they please.

Giraffes Can’t Dance! Maybe they can! Follow the link to listen and watch this adorable read-along. Take a 15 minute break to listen to a fun story written by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees, about inspiration and perseverance!

Nature’s Garden has created some yogurt soap recipes that will give your skin the ability to shine with glowing results. Enjoy these fun recipes that we have created! These recipes use our wonderful yogurt melt and pour soap base which will give you a wide array of amazing soap to create!  We hope you enjoy this list of soaps that hopefully will inspire you to create! First, let’s talk about why yogurt is such an amazing melt and pour soap base.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap BaseYogurt Soap Recipes: Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base

Let’s talk about the type of soap we will be using! If your are new to the world of soaping follow this link to the page on our website that will give you the full rundown how to use all of our melt and pour soap bases. The following recipes will be using our Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base. If you are new to the soapmaking world, melt and pour is an awesome way to get started. This soap will let you, the soap maker, focus on the aesthetic that will make your soap your own!  It allows you to familiarize yourself with techniques of handmade soapmaking using colorants, fragrances, and soap molds. This soap base is very versatile! It can be melted and remelted without losing any of its quality! This can be very helpful if you are trying to create a fancy soap that has multiple steps!

 

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Soap Frosting

Let’s set the scene! There is a plain loaf of soap sitting on your table looking kind of sad. It’s plain looking on top! It needs something! How about a fluffy mound of “whipped cream”? An easy and quick way to do this is our Soap Frosting made with whipped soap base and yogurt melt and pour soap! This versatile recipe can be scented with your fragrance oil of choice or even colored with a FUN soap colorant. Since it’s frosting though, we chose Buttercream Fragrance Oil. A yummy blend of buttercream and vanilla! Now your soaps have a beautiful topping that looks like you could dip your finger in and take a lick!

 

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Rainbow Zebra Print Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe

Our first recipe is a fun creation for those that like to get creative! We used yogurt melt and pour soap and some FUN soap colorants in Teal, Yelp Yellow, Neon Pink and Neon Blue! To create the fun Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe you will all you do is a simple trick of tilting your mold from one side to the other and allowing the layer you have poured to set up almost completely. You will definitely get a soap pattern that has a look of intricate layering. Only you will know the trick! We scented this soap with our best selling scent,  Amazingly Grace fragrance oil! This soap is scented with a light citrus tone sweetened with rose, violet, jasmine. 

So, what do you think?  Are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripes? Actually they are black with white stripes! Their stripes are camouflage from predators. Zebras are hard to distinguish if they are in large groups. The stripes act as a natural sunscreen to protect their skin from the African heat and sun.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe

This next recipe is a wonderfully feminine creation! Our Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap uses a combination of Yogurt melt and pour, plus our whipped soap base to help give the soap a fluffy, white topping! You are going to create 4 differently colored soap bases. Each soap base will have a beneficial clay added to it. The clays we chose to use are Rose Clay, French Green Clay, Kaolin and a personal favorite of mine: Vanilla Powder which is the yummiest smelling powder! These natural cosmetic clays will help exfoliate and nourish the skin along with removing impurities from your skin pores. The fragrance oil was our fragrance of the month in February, Moonlight Tuberose! This fragrance oil is a delicate blend of rose and greenery. Sprinkle some whole Jasmine flowers on top to give your soap an extra lovely touch!

Did you know? The tuberose is a night blooming flower native to Mexico. Louis XIV of France loved the tuberose. He had hundreds of them planted in the gardens at Versailles. The scent was overpowering! Gardeners grew the tuberoses in clay pots where they were planted directly into the ground. To keep the perfume-y air consistent, new plants were placed in among old plants on a daily basis.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Leprechaun Hat Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Leprechaun Hat Soap Recipe

Here’s an adorable soap to enhance your spring time or St. Patrick’s Day line of soaps! This recipe uses our Diamond Clear and Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Bases, 3 FUN Soap colorants and a little ingenuity! Our Leprechaun Hat Soap Recipe will be a wonder to look at and people will be impressed by your talents! The fragrance we chose is our Apple Happy Camper fragrance oil. This oil smells just like a green apple Jolly Rancher. Bright, tart and sweet!

Did you know? Leprechauns were thought to be dressed in red and not green? Poets and writers stated in their musings that the rascally leprechauns where seen wearing a variation of “red dress”.

Yogurt Soap Recipes: Banana Pudding Soap RecipeYogurt Soap Recipes: Banana Pudding Soap Recipe

Here is an ingenious soap that looks like you could eat it! Banana Pudding Soap is completely made using Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap base.  Our graphic artist, Afshan created this recipe.  She created the banana slices and vanilla wafers using molds from Flexiblemolds.com. These molds are wonderful to work with and can be used multiple times. She scented this fun and unique soap with our Old Fashioned Banana Pudding fragrance oil. It smells of true banana pudding! Vanilla wafers, bananas and meringue topping! The whipped topping for this particular recipe did not use the Soap Frosting recipe. We chose to whip up some imagine base with the yogurt soap base with a touch of vegetable glycerin to give the batter some flexibility.

Did you know? Banana Pudding is actually a dessert that developed in the south, around the early 1900s?

Please feel free to make the real thing! You will want one after you get a whiff of this soap! Using Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap for the cupcake and the “cream cheese” topping is just part of the creation. We used our yummy Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcake fragrance oil that smells of chocolate cake, vanilla, buttercream and coconut! We even grated a small bit of unscented soap base to help give it that “coconut” touch!

Did you know? Around 1873, William A. Lawrence, a Chester, New York dairyman, was the first to mass-produce cream cheese. In 1872, he purchased a Neufchâtel (neufchatel is actually a french cheese that is soft, slightly crumbly mold-ripened cheese) factory and shortly thereafter, by adding cream to the process, was able to create a richer cheese that he called “cream cheese”.

Our fragrance oil of choice for this recipe is Flower Child; a very earthy scent of patchouli and sandalwood! This soap would make a good companion to our Hippies & Hemp Cold Process soap!

Did you know? The term “flower child originated in San Francisco in the summer of 1967. “Flower Child” originated as a synonym for “hippie”.
