Rainbow Bath Salts Recipe: Weighing Out The Dead Sea SaltRainbow Bath Salts Recipe: Weighing Out The Dead Sea Salt

First, you are going to need to weigh out the proper amount for the Coarse Ground Dead Sea Salt. This salt will be separated and used to create the layers in the bath salt recipe. Each of these layers will need to start out with an equal portion of the Dead Sea Salt to each of the five mixing bowls. So, the total amount of the Dead Sea Slat, which is 904 grams, will be divided into 216 grams of sea salt for each bowl. While you can go through the process of mixing and coloring each bowl individually, it may be faster to weigh out the salt for each of the five portions during this step.

Next, you are going to mix the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCl) into each of your five mixing bowls. This will provide your gorgeous bath salt recipe with some luscious and fun foaming properties. This is sure to make you bath product more fun and bubbly. So, let’s start adding this ingredient to measured the Dead Sea Salt. Since you will be using a total of 176 grams of SCl, each of your five mixing bowls will need about 35.2 grams. After you measure out this ingredient you are going to mix the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate and the Dead Sea Salt together well. This will make sure that each scoop into your bath contains both of these ingredients and will lead to an even better bath product.

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 3
Step 1
:  Begin with cleaning your work area.  Also, clean and sanitize the supplies you will be using.  I would also suggest wearing a Natures Garden apron to protect your clothing, as well as a hair net and gloves.  Set out your lip balm pots, so they are ready to be filled.

 

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 4
Step 2: 
Once you are prepared, get your scale out.  In a microwave safe bowl, weigh out 3.35 ounces of our all natural lip balm base.

Step 3:  Next, in your microwave, melt the lip balm base.  You want to melt it slowly.  We suggest heating it in 30 second intervals, stirring as you heat it.  Heat only until your base is liquefied.  I should note, another option is to melt the base in a double boiler.  However, we chose to use our microwave.

Step 4:  Now, in the second bowl melt your white chocolate wafers.  We use seven chocolate wafers.  The chocolate is used as a sweetener in our Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe.  Again, melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.

Step 5:  Once both the base and chocolate are melted, add the chocolate to the base.  Stir well to incorporate the white chocolate in your lip balm.

Easy Lip Balm

easy lip balm Easy Lip Balm

Making your own lip balm is one of the easiest things to do.  By using Natures Gardens all natural lip balm base, you can quickly create your own lip balm.  With a few other supplies such as lip balm containers, flavoring, lip tints, and sweetener; you can take your lip balm to the next level.

To make your very own flavored lip balm using the all natural base, here is what you have to have:
All Natural Lip Balm Base
Lip Flavorings– now this list contains 24 different flavorings to choose from.  But, if you are wondering which flavorings are the most popular right now, they are: Juicy Watermelon, Strawberry Sorbet, Tropical Paradise, and Frozen Margarita.
Powdered Stevia (optional) but here is what you want to sweeten your lip balm or you can sweeten your lipbalm using chocolate wafers or white chocolate wafers.
Lip Tints (optional) but here if you want to tint your lips
Microwavable Bowl
Stirring Utensil
Pipettes (optional) but a great way to transfer the liquid lip balm to its container before it hardens
Containers–  this link will show a variety of lip balm containers from sticks to tins

Now, when it comes to actually making the lip balm, here are the steps:

1.  Scoop out some of the all natural lip balm base.  Place this into your microwaveable bowl.  Place the bowl into the microwave.  Heat in 30 second increments until melted.  If you are going to sweeten your lipbalm using chocolate wafers, you will want to melt the chocolate along with your lip balm base.

2.  Once the lip balm is melted, carefully remove it from the microwave.  If you are tinting your lip balm, add some colorant now and stir.  Obviously, the more colorant you add, the darker your lip balm will be.

3.  If you are adding stevia, you will want to crush it down even finer.  Because the stevia will not dissolve but only suspend in the lip balm the finer you can get it the better.  Once added, stir.

4.   Next, add a few drops of flavoring, and then stir again.

5.  Finally transfer your lip balm into its packaging.  Allow the lip balm to fully set up (which will not take too long).  Once your lip balm is firm, it is ready to use.

Making your own flavored lip balm is just that simple.  A great project to do with kids at birthday parties, sleepovers, or on a rainy day; this craft is simple, takes very little time, and is super easy to clean up.

Now, if you are interested in making your own lip balm from scratch, there are also other free recipes available on the Natures Garden website.  To view these recipes, you can simply click on this link.  Offering quite the variety, some of Natures Gardens more popular recipes are: Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm RecipeVegan Lip Butter, and the Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss Recipe, but there are many more to choose from.

Lotion Recipe


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath and body fragrances, bath products, colorants, cosmetic recipe, emulsifing agent, Fragrance Oils, homemade, homemade lotion, lotion, Natures Garden, soap dyes, sodium lactate and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Homemade Tropical Lotion RecipeThis amazing Tropical Lotion Recipe is filled with skin loving and moisturizing elements.  But, not only does this lotion sink right into your skin, it smells like a tropical paradise.  Just the perfect thing to snap you out of the winter blues, and get you ready for summer!

To make this lotion, there are some supplies you will need.  To heat and melt the oils/butters, you will be using a double boiler method on your stovetop.  You will also need a larger mixing bowl to combine the water and butters/oils, as well as a stick blender to encourage the emulsification process.  Other than that, the rest of the supplies are pretty standard:  a scale, a mixing spoon, a spatula, and a funnel (optional).

As for the rest of the ingredients in this lotion recipe, they can all be found at Natures Garden.  You will also be able to find the bottles and lids to package your lotion in by clicking on this link.

Here is the lotion recipe to make (2) 8 oz. bottles:
Water Phase:
425 grams Distilled Water
8 grams Sodium Lactate
Oil Phase:
24 grams BTMS 25
10 grams Mango Butter
28 grams Rice Bran Oil
30 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
6 grams Vitamin E Oil 
To Scent and Preserve:
10 grams Optiphen Preservative 
12 grams Papaya Dragon Fruit Fragrance Oil 
To get the same color pictured, you will need:
5 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye Yellow
7 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye Blue

It is suggested before starting this recipe to prep your area with all of the supplies that you will need.  Also, clean and sanitize your work area as well as your packaging materials.

And now, the steps:

The Water Phase:
Step 1:  Using your scale, weigh out at least 525 grams of distilled water.  Even though you will only be using 425 grams for this lotion recipe, you want to account for evaporation while heating.  Place your water in a pot.  Place the pot on the stove top.  Heat the water to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once the water hits that temperature, hold it there for 20 minutes.  This step will eliminate any bacteria that may be in the water.

heat your distilled water

Step 2:  When the time has elapsed, remove the water for the stove top/heat. Weigh out 425 grams of the water.  Then, add the sodium lactate.  Stir and set aside.

The Oil Phase:
Step 1:  Grab a larger pot.  Place a few inches of tap water into this pot.  Put this pot on to the stove top on medium heat.  Now, weigh out and combine the following:  Mango Butter, BTMS, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, and the Vitamin E.  Place all of the ingredients into a smaller pot.  Then, place this smaller pot in to the larger one.  This is the double boiler method.  As the ingredients melt, stir occasionally.  Heat the ingredients in the smaller pot to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Mixing Phase: Get ready to move!
Step 1: Double check that your water and your oils are both around 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, in a large mixing bowl combine the oil mixture and the water.

Step 2:  Using your stick blender, begin to emulsify.  This will become apparent when your mixture turns white in color.

The Cooling Phase:
Step 1:  Now, allow your mixture to cool.  The temperature that you are looking for is 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your lotion is this temperature, add the Optiphen preservative, colorant, and fragrance oil.  Once again, using your stick blender, mix.
