Although it’s called Christmas cookie, I use this all year long. My favorite vanilla rich cookie scent I have ever found. Of course, need to stabilize it in mp soap. Divine! 5 stars recommend.”  This cookie scent is a must have fragrance for many, year round.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Prepare the Bath Cookies

We will be preparing two parts when making our bath cookies.  First, we will be making the actual bath cookies.  Later, once they setup, we will be adding our frosting and sprinkle.  So, let’s start with the actual cookie bath fizzy.

Prepare the Bath Cookies: Weigh Out the Dry IngredientsPrepare the Bath Cookies: Weigh Out the Dry Ingredients

We will begin by weighing out our dry ingredients.  So, get out your mixing bowl.  Then, weigh and add 330 grams of your baking soda, 186 of the Epsom salt, 142 grams of your corn starch, 18 grams of Natures Garden’s kaolin white clay powder, and 54 grams powdered milk.  Next, with clean gloves on, use your hands to blend and mix the powders together.  If you notice any lumps in the mixture, be sure to break them up.  Set this bowl aside while we prepare the liquid portion of our recipe.

Prepare the Bath Cookies: Weighing Out and Melting the Wet IngredientsPrepare the Bath Cookies: Weighing Out and Melting the Wet Ingredients

Now, in a clean bowl, we will weigh out our wet ingredients that we will be melting.  So, in this bowl, weigh out 100 grams of your mango butter, 42 grams of your rice bran oil, and 50 grams of your cocoa butter golden natural.

Next, we will be melting the oil and butters using a double boiler.  So, you will need two pots.  One should be larger, the other smaller.  In the larger pot, add a few inches of water.  Then, place it on your stove top to heat.  In the smaller pot, add your butters and oil.  Now, place the small pot inside the large pot on the stove top.  Allow the oil and butter to melt, stirring occasionally.  By using a double boiler it will slowly melt the oils.  This will prevent them from melting too quickly and burning.

Prepare the Bath Cookies: Weighing Out and Melting the Wet IngredientsWhile you are waiting for your oils to melt, we will prepare our Christmas Cookies Fragrance Oil.  Due to the high vanilla content of Christmas Cookies Fragrance Oil, we will be adding Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to the cookie scent.  So, in a small bowl, add 20 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer and 20 grams Christmas Cookies Fragrance Oil.

Next, we will go back to oils you are melting on the stove.  Once these oils have fully melted, place them back in the bowl that you used to weight them out.  Finally, add the Christmas Cookies Fragrance Oil mixture you have prepared.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Adding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry IngredientsChristmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Adding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry Ingredients

Once you have prepared the wet ingredients, you will need both the dry, powdered ingredients in front of you.  I highly recommend wearing clean gloves.  Then, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Mix everything together using your hands.  You want to make sure the entire mixture is fully blended.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Adding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry IngredientsNext, we will be adding the citric acid.  Now, in many cases, we would add the citric acid right along with the dry powdered ingredients.  However, since we added Vanilla White Color Stabilizer we are adding the citric acid last.  You see, Vanilla White is water based.  So, it will activate the mixture causing it to fizz.  We will need to add the citric acid in small increments, mixing as we add it.  So, let’s go ahead and begin adding 151 grams of citric acid.  Add a small amount, then, use your hands to mix it in.  This will prevent the mixture from fizzing to much.  Continue this process until you have added all of the citric acid.  You want to be sure that all of your ingredients are fully combined before moving on.  When you are finished mixing you should have a dough-like consistency.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Preparing the Bath CookiesChristmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Preparing the Bath Cookies

Finally, we will be forming the bath cookies with our dough.  You will first mist your mixture lightly with witch hazel an then mix.  Then, form your cookie.  This is done in the same manner you would make a sugar cookie, for example.  Simply roll the dough between your hands to create a ball.  Then, press to flatten the cookie.  The size you create is entirely up to you.  However, ours were about an inch in diameter before we flattened them.  After forming a cookie you can either place it on wax paper or a silicone baking mat like I used.  When you have used up all of your dough, all you need to do is let your bath cookies setup up for a while.  They will need to completely setup before we frost them.  I allowed mine to set for a little over an hour.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Preparing Our Whipped Frosting

Frosting your bath cookies is a fairly simple process.  It is very similar to frosting a regular cookie.  There is, however, one small difference, you will need to frost them very quickly.  Since we are using soap frosting, your frosting will setup rather quickly once the melt and pour soap is added.  So, just keep this in mind as you are working.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Preparing Your Whipped Soap BaseChristmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Preparing Your Whipped Soap Base

First, we will prepare the whipped soap base that will be used in the frosting.  You want to prepare this portion in a deep mixing bowl.  We will be using a hand mixer for the whipped soap.  For this recipe you will need to weigh out 150 grams of the whipped soap base.  Then, to the same bowl, add 15 grams of Natures Garden’s Christmas Cookies Fragrance Oil along with 15 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  In addition, add 30 grams of your vegetable glycerin and 5 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  While we chose to make our frosting green, you can use another color if you would like.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Preparing Your Whipped Soap Base

Once you have all of your ingredients in the mixing bowl, we will begin whipping the soap frosting.  So, get out your hand mixer.  Then, use your hand mixer to beat the soap base to a whipped frosting consistency. Once you have your soap frosting at the correct consistency set it aside while we prepare the melt and pour soap.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Preparing Your Melt and Pour Soap Base

Now, while we do have a lovely whipped frosting that we just prepared, without the addition of melt and pour soap, the frosting will not harden.  If the frosting does not harden, we will not be able to package our bath cookies.  So, in order to harden our frosting, we will be adding some cocoa butter melt and pour soap. We will be preparing this mp soap base in a separate mixing bowl.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Preparing Your Melt and Pour Soap BaseFirst, in your empty mixing bowl, weigh out 150 grams of your cocoa butter soap base.  Then, melt the soap base in the microwave.  You will need to melt your soap base in 30 second intervals.  Melt the base only until it is in a fluid state.  Be especially careful not to over-heat the mp base.  Once your soap is melted, you are ready to move on and begin putting everything together.  As you continue to move through the next few steps you will want to work quickly.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Putting the Soap Frosting TogetherChristmas Bath Cookies Recipe: Putting the Soap Frosting Together

Now, quickly get your bowl containing the whipped soap base.  To this bowl, add your melted cocoa butter soap.  Then, use your hand held mixer to combine the two together.  You want to mix on a low speed.  Continue to mix until you have a fluffy frosting consistency again.  Then, your whipped frosting is ready.  You are ready to frost your cookies

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Frosting the Bath CookiesChristmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Frosting the Bath Cookies

Finally, we will frost our bath cookies.  You will frost your bath cookies in the same manner you would a regular edible cookie.  The only difference is that you will have to work quickly so that your frosting does not setup before you are finished.  So, frost each of your cookies with your green frosting.

Once all of your Christmas bath cookies have been frosted, it is time to add sprinkles.  Sprinkle each cookie with a dash of sprinkles.  We chose to use red, green, and white sprinkle.  While you can choose to use whichever sprinkles you would like, we prefer the type pictured to the left.  We have found that this type of colorful sprinkle does not bleed as easily onto the frosting like others will.

Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe:  Using Your Christmas Bath Cookies

Your Christmas bath cookies are very simple to use.  All you have to do is add a bath cookie or two right two your warm bath water.  Then, lay back and relax your holiday troubles away.  The bath cookies will fizz like a bath bomb and have the added benefit of cocoa butter, mango butter, and rice bran oil.  We have also added Epsom salt to help you further relax.

We hope that you enjoy this Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe as much as we enjoyed making it with you.  For even more Christmas fragrance fun check out all of our free Christmas crafts.  Don’t forget to show us your creations.  Post pictures of your finished creations on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.

Santa Hat Candle RecipeSanta Hat Candle Recipe

Everyone knows recognizes jolly ole Saint Nick in his festive red suit, eating those yummy snacks we leave each year.  We all know he loves his cookies.  So, here at Natures Garden, we were inspired by both Santa’s wardrobe and those delicious treats.  This cute candle idea that you can give as gift or to decorate your home this holiday season.  Our Santa Hat Candle Recipe also smells delicious.  It just so happens to use our Santa Snack Fragrance Oil.

Santa Hat Candle Recipe Ingredients Needed From Natures Garden:

Santa Hat Candle Recipe Other Ingredients Needed:

Scale
Spoon
Mixing Bowl
Ziplock Bag or Decorating Bag
Scissors
Pots (For Double Boiler)

Santa Hat Candle RecipeSanta Hat Candle Recipe Creating the Cupcake Bases:

First, you will need the cupcake mold.  In addition, will need two votive wick pins.  Place one wick pin in the center of each cavity of the cupcake mold. Use a scale to weigh out 7 ounces of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.   Next, melt the wax using a double boiler method to 195 degrees as we described in one of our candle classes.

For the cupcake base you will need to include 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye.  In addition, add 1 drop of our spectrum black liquid candle dye.  Stir to fully incorporate the color.  When the Pillar of Bliss wax has cooled to about 180 degrees you can go ahead and add your fragrance oil.  Use your scale to weigh out and add 0.7 ounces of Santa Snacks Fragrance Oil.  Stir thoroughly to  blend the fragrance oil with the wax.  When the temperature reaches 140 degrees, pour the wax into the cupcake Mold Market mold.  The temperature is very important because you do not want to melt the mold.  Let the cupcake bases to set up. Then, remove them from the molds once they harden.

Santa Hat Candle RecipeSanta Hat Candle Recipe Separating and Whipping the Wax: 

Next we will be created the part of the candle that looks like Santa’s Hat.  We will be using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Since this is a container wax, it is softer and also easy to whip and pipe.  Using a double boiler, weigh our and melt 10 ounces of Joy Wax. When your wax reaches 200 degrees, remove 3 ounces of wax.  Put this wax in a separate, small mixing bowl.  We will be using this white portion of wax for the white parts of the Santa hat. Let the temperature drop to about 175 degrees, before adding 0.3 ounces of Santa Snacks Fragrance Oil.

Allow the wax to set up slightly.  You want the wax to be at a slush consistency.  Whip the wax with a spoon or fork.  Put the wax on top of the base of each cupcake.  You want it to look like the white portion of Santa’s hat.  However, you should save about ½ ounce of wax. This waxs will used for the two white balls that go on the top of each Santa hat.  Set the remaining wax aside, we will come back to it.

Santa Hat Candle RecipeSanta Hat Candle Recipe Piping the Wax:

 

The remaining Joy Wax will be colored red.  We will use it in the red part of the Santa hats.  Allow the remaining wax to reach 200 degrees.  Add 4 drops of Spectrum Liquid Red Candle Dye.  Also, use a toothpick to add a small amount of black liquid candle dye. Use a mixing spoon to blend the colorant in with the candle wax.  Let the temperature of the Joy Wax to drop to 175 degrees before adding 0.7 ounces of Santa’s Snacks Fragrance Oil.  Stir well to blend.

Now, we will be piping the wax.  You will need a decorating bag or a ziplock bag. Once the wax has a frosting like consistency, place it in a ziplock bag. Then, cut the corner of the bag so you can pipe the wax.  Pipe the wax in a circular motion on top of the cupcake.  You want the wax to look like Santa’s hat, sort of a triangle shape.  This means wider at the base, and narrower going up.

Santa Hat Candle RecipeSanta Hat Candle Recipe the Finishing Touches: 

For the finally part you will need to wear gloves.  Using the white wax you saved earlie, create two white balls by rolling it in the palms of your hands. Place these white balls on top of the red wax. Once the candles have set up, remove the wick pins and thread the wick through the candle.  Your candles can now be used or given as Christmas gifts to your family and friends.

Balsam Fragrance


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Soap making supplies, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Balsam FragranceBalsam Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Balsam fir trees, native to northern North America, are evergreen trees that thrive in cooler environments. You may know them better as… CHRISTMAS TREES. That’s right, balsam fir trees are your seasonal superhero’s secret identity. It takes about a decade for these trees to reach ideal Christmas tree height- 6 or 7 feet- but they can live to be up to 200 years old and grow up to 60 feet in height. Can you imagine how many presents would fit under that tree?!

What Does Balsam Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fresh pine balsam aroma is great for Christmas time, or all year round. Use by itself, or for mixing creative new scents for your line.

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam Fragrance Oil?

They design delightful decorative candles! Balsam Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring suggestion for candles made with this wonderful pine scent are to use 4 drops green plus a little black liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of green color block into your melted wax. Black candle colorant only comes in liquid candle dye. Please remember that our liquid candle dyes are VERY CONCENTRATED and as someone who likes to mix colors for painting and various craft applications, let me tell you that you only need a tiny amount of black color to make something darker. Itty bitty tiny little bit of black. You can always add more, but I recommend using the tip of a toothpick, dipping it in your dye, and then dipping it in your wax. Also- never use crayons to color your candles; it’ll clog the wick.

They scent rooms without using wax! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fresh fir fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%. It came across nice and strong in aroma beads. You could also modify our Glamour Aroma Bead Air Freshener Recipe, use Balsam Fragrance Oil instead of I’m Too Sexy Fragrance Oil and use Christmas-tree-shaped (or any Christmas shape your heart desires) cookie cutters to make cute little Christmas ornaments! Remember, though, that once you use baking tools to make a recipe with fragrance oils, do not use them again in cooking applications. Even minute residue from your recipe could make you sick if you eat it. Set your fragrance fun equipment aside from you cooking equipment; better safe than sorry!

They also invent amazing bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this simply spectacular scent in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 3.5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this amazing aroma performed perfectly in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and very, very strong scent retention. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0% so it is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products. Our coloring suggestions are to use green and black soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. (Don’t forget what I said above about using black in a color mix!) We’ve also got some natural soap colorants that you’re welcome to try! We’ve got a handful of natural green soap colorants, and for black: activated charcoal. Be sure to read the pages on the powders- some soapmaking processes may affect the intended color of your soap. (You can also read-up on the nutrients and other benefits of these natural colorants!)

Check out our Christmas tree soap molds for festive holiday soapmaking!

They create body products for outside of the bath! This fresh pine aroma performs perfectly in perfumes, and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body-sprays is 3.5%.

They even come up with cool cleaning products. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fragrance in cleaning products is 3.5%.
