25 Ways to Use Peppermint25 Ways to Use Peppermint

We all have our passions. Well for me, at this time of year, it’s peppermint.  There is just something about the smell and taste of peppermint that just makes me feel rejuvenated and excited for the holiday season.  Some love pumpkin…pumpkin carving, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin soaps, the list could go on and on.  And for those who have a love for pumpkin, you can check out ways to use pumpkin here. Others, though, have a passion for peppermint. So, today, we will talk about peppermint and show you 25 ways to use peppermint.

You know that warm feeling you get when it’s snowing and freezing outside and you curl up on the couch with a big fluffy blanket? That is the same feeling I get when I drink a hot peppermint mocha coffee.  I even make my nieces peppermint hot cocoa each year, topped with whipped cream and peppermint pieces.  They have loved it since they were toddlers. They are now teenagers, beginning to drive, growing up and finding their way through life, but I love that they still come over for peppermint mochas and have girl time with their aunt. To me, that is the best feeling in the world.

Peppermint contains the active ingredient, menthol, which is thought to loosen phlegm and soothe coughs. In fact, peppermint tea is believed to relieve the pressure caused by migraine headaches. The leaves of peppermint are frequently added to eye pillow formulas to assist in relieving headaches. Since peppermint produces a cooling and numbing effect on the skin, it is sometimes used in body cream formulations to help with skin irritations.

Almond Body Cream a Closer Look at the Ingredients Used

Almond Fragrance Oil is amazing for a lotion.  It is an almond scent that is similar to a popular brand.  Our almond scented oil is a true almond aroma and a Natures Garden best selling fragrance oil!

Shea butter not only naturally contains vitamins, it also acts a humectant. In addition, it is often used in the medical industry as a base for many ointments due to its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti inflammatory properties.

Sweet Almond Oil is light, moisturizing, and easily absorbed into the skin. This means you will remain moisturized without the extra grease some creams and lotions can leave.

Macadamia Nut Oil is wonderfully nourishing for dry skin, leaving it soft and smooth.  In addition, it is high in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. It also has high levels of antioxidants. Finally, just like sweet almond oil, it is easily absorbed by the skin, without the greasy feel.

Silky Emulsifying Wax is an emulsifier that helps your oils and butters mix with your water based ingredients.  In addition, this particular emulsifier will leave your skin feeling silkier compared to other types of emulsifiers.

Vitamin E Oil is used in this lotion recipe as an antioxidant. So, what exactly does this mean? Oils, like the carrier oils used in this almond body cream recipe, will go rancid and turn brown over time. Natures Garden carries pure Tocopherol T-50 vitamin E oil that is used to slow this process.

Stearic Acid is used in both creams and lotions. Stearic acid acts as a thickener in this product, and in other cosmetic recipes. Without stearic acid, this cream would not have the wonderful thickness that we love.

Optiphen preservative is used to prevent the growth of things like bacteria, yeast, and mold. Now, some believe that vitamin E oil can be used a preservative.  However, vitamin E is not a preservative, it cannot prevent bacteria growth.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Total Recipe Weights for All Ingredients

706 grams Distilled Water

36 grams Macadamia Nut Oil

80 grams Sweet Almond Oil

48 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax

16 grams Stearic Acid

20 grams Shea Butter

10 grams Vitamin E Oil

14 grams Optiphen Preservative

12 grams Almond Fragrance Oil

Almond Body Cream RecipeAlmond Body Cream Recipe Preparations Preparations Prior to Starting

Before you start making your almond body cream recipe, make sure you have everything you need near your work station. This recipe will create five 8 ounce jars of lotion. So, you will want to get five of your 8 ounce jars out, along with five 70/400 straight smooth white lids. Additionally, you are going to want to make sure your work area, packaging materials, and equipment are cleaned and sanitized. At this time you also will want to get out any ingredients you will be using and place them in your work area. Taking these little steps ahead of time will ensure that making this recipe will go as smoothly as possible. Finally, we recommend wearing gloves, a hair net, and an apron when preparing this recipe. So, go ahead and put those on at this time.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 1: The Water PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 1: The Water Phase

First, you will need to prepare the water needed for your homemade lotion. So, you are going to need to weigh out at least 850 grams of distilled water. While the recipe only calls for 706 grams of distilled water, you always want to account for the water that evaporates when you are heating it on your stove top. Remember, it is always better to have too much water than not enough. So, if you are over the 850 grams, that is okay, we will be weighing the portion of the water we will be using for the cream later. Now, go ahead and place the water into a pot and place the pot on the stove. Heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You will need to keep the water at 180 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 20 minutes. The heat will destroy any bacteria that is in the water. After 20 minutes, you can now remove your water from the heat source. Finally, you will weigh out the water that you will be using for the almond cream. So, weigh out 706 grams of the heated distilled water from your initial 850 grams of distilled water.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 2: The Oil PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 2: The Oil Phase

Next, weigh out all of the following ingredients: 80 grams of stearic acid, 48 grams of silky emulsifying wax, 80 grams of sweet almond oil, 36 grams of macadamia nut oil, and 20 grams of shea butter. You will be melting the oils, butters, and waxes using the double boiler method. You will need two pots, one larger than the other. Next, in the larger pot, add a few inches of tap water. Now, place the larger pot, containing the water, on the stove top over medium heat. Then, place all of your oils, butters, and waxes you weighed out into your smaller pot. Finally, put your smaller pot filled with all your weighed out ingredients into the larger pot containing the water. This will create a double boiler. Lastly, melt and heat your cream ingredients to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to stir occasionally as you are melting the ingredients.  Stirring will prevent scorching of the oils. In addition, it will ensure an even temperature throughout the waxes, butters, and oils.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 3: The Mixing PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 3: The Mixing Phase

Once the temperatures of your water, along with your oil, wax and butter mixture are both at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit, place them both into a deep mixing bowl. For this bowl, the deeper the better so you don’t lose any of your mixture as you are blending. Now, use your stick blender to blend your water and other ingredients together. You will need to mix very well. You will find that while stick blending the ingredients, the mixture will turn white in color. This is a great sign. It means your almond body cream is starting to emulsify. Continue to stick blend until your lotion begins to emulsify.  Then, in the next step, we will be adding a few more ingredients.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down Phase

Last, are entering the final phase, phase 4. We refer to this as the cool down phase. During this phase, your handmade body cream will really begin to take shape. Allow your mixture from phase 3 to cool to 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature of the cream has cooled to this temperature, you will be adding a few more ingredients. However, first, I would like to point out the importance of temperature.  When it comes to adding you preservative, it is extremely important to pay very close attention and add it at the correct time.  If you add a preservative at temperatures above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the preservative will burn off.  This will leave your finished product unprotected.  A preservative prevents the growth of bacteria in the product.  Now, if you add the preservative below 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you may notice the preservative will separate from the lotion or cream. So, just remember to pay close attention to those temperatures and your cream will turn out perfectly!

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down Phase

Now, since your temperatures are correct, you are ready to add the last few ingredients. You are going to need to add 14 grams of your optiphen preservative,10 grams of vitamin E oil, and 12 grams of Natures Garden’s Almond Fragrance Oil. Once these are added, you will once again, use your stick blender to mix your ingredients together. You want to make sure you have all three ingredients mixed thoroughly and evenly into the body cream. As your almond body cream cools, it will continue to thicken to a cream consistency. You will want to stick blend the body cream periodically as the almond cream is cooling. Each time you stick blend the cream, it will get thicker. Once your almond cream reaches room temperature, it will be a thick luscious body cream.

Finally, now that your almond body cream has cooled and reached room temperature, fill each of your five 8 ounce jars and place the smooth straight lid on top of each of the jars. There are a few different ways you can fill the jars. When we created our cream, we used a bowl with a spout. So, we just simply slowly poured our cream right into the jars. Another option is using a spoon to scoop the almond body cream into each jar. Alternatively, you can also use a Ziploc bag, cutting the corner to create a decorating bag, and fill the jar that way. This homemade cream recipe will make approximately five of the 8 oz jars.

When creating this body cream, we used our Almond Fragrance Oil but you can always use another body safe fragrance oil if you would like.

You will just need to add a couple drops at a time until you get the color you are looking for! Alternatively, you can infuse herbs to naturally color your homemade cream lotion.

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe

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

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Ingredients Available at Natures Garden

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

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Other Supplies You Will Need

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

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Prior to Starting

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

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Total Recipe Amounts

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

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Mixing the Powdered Ingredients

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Mixing the Powdered Ingredients

 

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

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Mixing the Powdered Ingredients

 

 

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

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Oils

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Oils

 

 

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

 

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Oils

 

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

 

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Packaging Your Mask

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Packaging Your Mask

 

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

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Packaging Your Mask

 

 

 

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

 

 

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

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

 

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Using Your Mask

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe Using Your Mask

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

Activated Charcoal Facial Mask Recipe My Results

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

Bath gels, bath oils, lotions, scrubs, and perfumes, are only some of the great bath and body products that can include up to 5% of this fragrance oil. If you want to add soap dye to your bath and body products, then we would suggest that you use orange and yellow liquid soap dyes for this fragrance oil.  Just know that you should never use candle dyes in any of your body products. They will stain your skin.

Further, cold process soaps are one kind of soap that can be made successfully with this aroma. Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this fragrance oil is absolutely perfect for making soap. A batch of soap that uses this scent will have no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. Also, the soaps will not have any discoloration and a strong scent will be retained. Additionally, both hot process soap recipes and melt and pour soap recipes can successfully incorporate this scent.

Peach Magnolia Raspberry Fragrance Oil Lotion RecipeIf you love our Peach Magnolia Raspberry Fragrance Oil, then we’re pretty sure you’re going to love our Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe, too! This scrumptious and super cute lotion is moisturizing and even naturally colored! The pink hue in this lotion is all due to the natural red pigment in the hibiscus flowers whole that we infused into the recipe.
