Crafts for St. Patrick's DayCrafts for St Patricks Day

March 17 is a wonderful day if you are Irish. Not many countries have a day dedicated to celebrating their heritage, beliefs and traditions all over the world! Even if you are not lucky enough to have Irish blood coursing through your veins it doesn’t really matter! You can still partake in the fun traditions the Irish have shared with the world! Green beer, corned beef and cabbage, leprechauns and wearing green are just a few ways this amazing country loves to express their heritage loud and clear! 

Crafters are always looking for ways to enhance any kind of holiday or season and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. We at Nature’s Garden have rounded up some crafts for St Patricks Day to help enhance your line of creations. If you are in need of some fresh inspiration to show off your skills as a candle maker, a soaper or all of the above then take a look through a few of these easy, and fun recipes below!

No celebration of your Irish heritage (or just because) would be complete without green beer! So why not a Green Beer Candle? This fun candle recipe uses our gel wax for the beer part and soy wax that is whipped up to give your beer its foamy top! This candle is so innovative and easy! We suggest using a clear beer stein to give your candle that look of realism! We used our Green Irish fragrance oil that is by far one of my favorite scents at Nature’s Garden! An amazingly strong, spicy-sweet scent that works perfectly in all manners of soaping or candle making. It may discolor your product to a lavender color, but if you use a bit of green dye (especially with this recipe) you will not have a problem. This is such an awesome fragrance and the candle is incredibly easy to create!

This Pot O’ Gold Candle looks like it is complicated to make, but it is really as simple as can be.  We chose to use beeswax to create the little rainbow scene and it is really a very easy process. Beeswax is very pliable after it has been melted and it will help make this step of the creation quick and easy. We also chose our Joy Wax for the body of the candle.

  Joy Wax is amazing to work with. It has an awesome cold and hot scent throw, it will burn clean and has a nice satiny finish. Our fragrance oil of choice is Green Clover and Aloe. A fresh, floral scent that reminds me of a warm, spring day after it rains! This fragrance oil works well in all soy waxes and even in air fresheners.

Chocolate Facial Mask RecipeChocolate Facial Mask Recipe

There are a lot of benefits you can get from our chocolate face mask recipe that will really bring out the beauty in your skin! While we knew that cocoa power could be wonderful for skin, we still didn’t have a cocoa recipe that would care for your face. So, we decided to create a real chocolate face mask with cocoa powder! This recipe will leave your skin feeling clean, vibrant, and so soft.  So, check out our fabulous Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe from Natures Garden!

This facial recipe uses all natural ingredients to create a perfect recipe that will care for your face and leave you with a healthy glow! Further, we added vegetable glycerin and Vitamin E Oil to make sure that your skin remains nourished and gorgeous. Since removing toxins in your pores could pull out moisture, we need something to replenish and soften the skin. Plus, we included bentonite clay, which is perfect for creating homemade facials. Whether you are looking for a bentonite clay mask for blackheads, chocolate face mask for acne, or are interested in the other wonderful skin benefits, this is the perfect face mask recipe for you!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Benefits of Organic Cocoa Powder and Other Ingredients

First, cocoa powder is great for your skin! Cocoa contains Omega 6 fatty acids, which can help heal wounds and fade scars. Plus, the cocoa has been known to protect the skin and promote healthy, rejuvenated skin! Furthermore, this ingredient should improve complexion and leave your skin glowing by increasing blood flow and its natural skin protection. Thus, this sounded like a perfect ingredient for an all natural facial recipe!

Additionally, bentonite clay has some healing benefits for the skin, as well! It has been known to help reduce acne as it will help reduce the production of sebum in the skin. Further, some have found this clay to have absorptive properties, which will attract toxins and impurities our of the skin to be easily washed away.

Furthermore, the vegetable glycerin is great for your skin, too! While most of these lovely ingredients focus on pulling out toxins, it is important to make sure that your skin doesn’t get dried out in the process! So, this ingredient is included to help pull some moisture back into your skin. Thus, your skin won’t dry out! Instead, your face will become softer and more moisturized!

Also, Vitamin E Oil is a lovely ingredient for your skin! It is known to hydrate, repair, and protect your skin from damage. So, this ingredient is perfect for producing soft, rejuvenated skin. Plus, many have used Vitamin E Oil to reduce wrinkles and reducing signs of aging.

So, these ingredients will get your skin feeling clean, detoxed, and nourished! It is the perfect mixture to provide your skin with the healthy glow you have been searching for. Plus, all of these ingredients are natural and should be great for more sensitive skin types. Literally, there are five ingredients, including water, that are all naturally derived and great for your skin!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Preparing to Create Your Face Mask

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Preparing the Vegetable Glycerin Portion

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

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Creating the Finished Homemade Facial

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

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Using the Homemade Facial Recipe

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Face Lifting Mask

DIY Face Lifting Mask TipsDIY Face Lifting Mask Tips

Using a face lifting mask for a truly excellent face lift at home will help you cleanse your pores and refresh your skin in a wonderful way. It will take some work but you can really enjoy this after a long and relatively tiresome day. You will need to make use of a blender when you prepare the mask, but all in all it happens to be a fairly easy thing to make if you have the time and inclination. All you need to create your masterpiece are the following materials:

  • A ripe, peeled banana and half an apple should be placed inside your blender, as well as about a teaspoon worth of lemon juice as well and roughly four teaspoons of honey. Once you have this ready, blend it into a smooth mix and pour it into a bowl. You should add some boiled and cooled oatmeal into the mix to complete its transformation. You can use some of the mix to spread it on your face, but you will need to ensure you have the right level of thickness on it to completely ensure you can benefit from using it. You can cover the mix and leave it for later in your fridge to cool down.
  • Once you have that done, you will need to move on to the next step on your list,  properly cleaning your face and finishing the job of keeping your pores freshened up. You can do that by using a cloth soaked in some hot water. Squeeze it out and spread it over your face, allowing its moisture to open your pores, letting the mask do its job more effectively overall. Doing so will help you a great deal as you will notice after you’re done using it.
  • Once the previous step is complete, use a dry and soft cloth to pat you face dry, then spread the mask around your face using your fingers. Since your mixture will harden as it dries out, you should not massage too hard. Do so just enough to ensure the exfoliation of your skin, allowing the mask to clean your face more effectively. The mask will need to stay on your face for the next twenty minutes if you want to easily move on to your next step.
  • Rinsing the mask when you’re done with some lukewarm water should allow you to almost finish the job. You can also use cold water, ice cubes and something similar that happens to be cold to close your pores when you’re done. Pat your face dry and you will deal with this last step.
  • You may also decide to use some toner after you’re done with your face mask, as it will help you remove the residue left after you’re done with it. You will need to restore the pH balance of your skin, so use some cotton balls and apply it to your face to avoid it drying out in the end. Once all of this is complete you can focus on kitchen cleaning and floor cleaning if you managed to spill some of the mask on the floor by accident.
