www.naturesgardencandles.com/kaolin-clay-powder-cosmetics.htmlWhat is Kaolin Clay Used For?

Kaolin Clay powder is one of Nature’s Garden most popular cosmetic additives we offer.  It can be utilized in a variety of different ways. What is kaolin clay used for? Kaolin Clay, also called China Clay, is a white clay that is found in the soils of hot, moist climates. This clay is perfect for those with sensitive skin or those who are prone to acne breakouts. Kaolin can be used to create mineral makeup such as foundation, eye shadow, and blush. China Clay is also a wonderful thickening agent that is a perfect ingredient for bath bombs. 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. You might just find what you have been looking for!

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For: Using Kaolin Clay for Acne

Many have found that kaolin clay is wonderful for acne and those who have sensitive skin. It is the mildest of clays and is perfect for soaking up oil. Kaolin Clay powder can be used on various types of skin conditions. Whether its rashes or inflammation from break-outs, Kaolin is very good at soothing irritated skin.

Kaolin Clay Powder can be used alone or in combination with other products to help lessen acne breakouts.  Our Tea Tree Soap is a perfect example.

Tea Tree Essential Oil is perfect for penetrating those clogged up pores, loosening up dirt and will help control and possibly prevent breakouts. This soap is quick and simple to make using our Hemp melt and pour soap base as your starting point.

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For: Using Kaolin Clay for Soaps

Kaolin is rich in potassium, titanium and silicon. These elements help to produce the formation of collagen. When wet, Kaolin is smooth, silky and creamy which in turn, will give your soap the same feeling. Kaolin is also helpful in retaining moisture in the body, soaks up dirt and toxins. Your skin will feel deeply cleansed without that tight, dry feeling you can get from regular soap.

We said in the above paragraph that there are a few good reasons to use Kaolin Clay in any type of soap recipe. It can be used as a fragrance fixative. This may help during any cold or hot process soaping as creating soap from scratch can be rough on fragrance oils. Another good reason for using Kaolin Clay is that when you create a paste with it, this will help you to create swirls in melt and pour soap, adding some decorative flair to your soap creations. It is also a good natural colorant to help give some white color to your soap if you wish.

A soft, feminine scent that smells of apples, pears, lily of the valley, jasmine and of course tuberose. 

 

What is Kaolin Used For: Creating Bath Bombs

Kaolin Clay is a good, gentle additive to any type of bath bombs, fizzies or bath cookies. The addition of Kaolin is useful in the fact that it not only a fragrance fixative, but it adds natural color and hardness to the bath bomb.

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.

Our first recipe using arrowroot is our Pink Lemonade Scrub.

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.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe


This entry was posted in facial masks, Fragrance Oils, Free Recipes, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Lavender Face Mask RecipeLavender Face Mask Recipe

Today, we will be showing you how to create a lavender face mask recipe.  This mask is perfect for sensitive skin.  We use both kaolin clay and soothing lavender.  Lavender is a wonderful addition to your skin care routine when you need to revitalize and tone your skin.  To read even more about the remarkable lavender benefits in your bath and body products, click here to see our free lavender class.  Kaolin clay was added, in part, to help cleanse your skin.  However, we will look a little bit closer at each of these ingredients below.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Cosmetic Making Supplies Found at Natures Garden

Lavender Flowers Powder
Kaolin Clay Powder
Vitamin E Oil
Vegetable Glycerin
Disposable Pipettes
2 oz White Double Wall Jar
White Dome Lids 58/400
1 oz Clear PET Bottle
White Smooth Disc Lid 20/410

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Other Equipment You Will Need

Mixing Bowls (one medium and one small bowl)
Scale
Mixing Spoons
Distilled Water

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Total Recipe Amounts

96 grams Lavender Flowers Powder
224 grams Kaolin Clay Powder
24 drops Vitamin E Oil
12 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Weigh Out the Lavender Powder

First, let’s talk a little bit about lavender powder.  Lavender flowers powder has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, healing, and toning properties.  So, it is a perfect addition to a face mask recipe.

Weigh Out the Lavender PowderNow, you will need to weigh out the lavender flowers powder.  So, get your scale out.  You will also need your medium size bowl.  Then, use your scale to weigh out 96 grams of your lavender flowers powder.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Weigh Out the Kaolin Clay Powder

Next, let’s talk about kaolin clay powder. Kaolin clay is also known as China Clay.  It is a white clay that is wonderful for those with sensitive skin.  This type of clay is often used to make mineral makeup.  It is used in cosmetic products like foundation, blush, and even eye shadow.  When used in a bath bomb, it helps to harden them.  In this case, there are two reasons we added it to this recipe.  First, it will help harden the face mask when applied to your face.   In addition, like most cosmetic clays, kaolin clay will help clean your skin and help with removing toxins.

Weigh Out the Kaolin Clay Powder
So, go ahead and weigh out the kaolin.  You will add the clay to the same bowl you have added your lavender to.  To your medium bowl, add 224 grams of your kaolin white clay.  Then, mix the two ingredients together.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Add the Vitamin E Oil

The next ingredient we will be adding is vitamin E.  Vitamin E oil from Natures Garden comes in the purest form, this is called Tocopherol T-50.  It is not tocopherol acetate.  Vitamin E oil is an antioxidant and is fabulous for your skin.

Add the Vitamin E OilNext, to your bowl containing the powdered ingredients, you will be adding your pure Vitamin E oil.  So, use a disposable pipette to add 24 drops of the Vitamin E oil right to the powder.  Then, once again, mix the ingredients together.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Packaging Your Facial Mask

For this recipe, we decided to package the powder portion of the mask and vegetable glycerin separately.  We chose to create the facial mask recipe this way for a couple of reasons.  First, creating the facial mask mixture separately without the water you will not need to add a preservative. In addition, you will be able to prepare a quick product for your customers.  This project can be created in just a few minutes.  Each two ounce jar will create approximately 4 facial masks.

Packaging Your Facial Mask:  The Powdered Portion

The Powdered Portion

Now, your powdered portion is complete.  You can begin packaging your powdered portion of the facial mask.  So, use a spoon to fill each of your 2 oz white double wall jars.  You will be able to create approximately 8 jars of facial mask.

Packaging Your Facial Mask:  The Liquid Portion

First, let’s talk about the vegetable glycerin.  Vegetable glycerin is a humectant.  This means it will draw moisture to your skin.  So, we add vegetable glycerin to the facial mask to help leave our skin moisturized.  It is important because, when using a facial mask, you are using ingredients that draw impurities from your skin.  So, adding vegetable glycerin will help to leave your skin feeling moisturized.

The Liquid Portion

Next, we will prepare the vegetable liquid portion of the facial mask.  While yes, water needs to be mixed to a mask, we will not be adding it at this point.  That will come later when it is time to use your mask.  So, we will prepare eight bottles of vegetable glycerin.  To each of your half ounce bottles add 12 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Then, place a white ribbed lid on each bottle.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Using Your Facial Mask

We talked earlier about packaging our mask.  So, in order to use the lavender mask, you will need to mix it.  As we talked about before, by mixing it on an as needed basis, it will prolong the shelf life and make it a very fast project to create.  With that being said, we will now talk about how you can use the mask.  It really is a simple process.  In addition, if you are selling this mask as a product, you can sell the jar and bottle as a set and label it with instructions.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Mixing Your Facial Mask

You will need one of your jars of powder.  Also, you will need one of the bottles of vegetable glycerin.  Finally, you will need your small mixing bowl at this time.

Mixing Your Facial Mask

We will start with the lavender powdered mixture.  First, to your small bowl, add about 1 tablespoon of the powder.

 

 

 

Adding Vegetable Glycerin

Next, you will need your bottle of vegetable glycerin.  Then, add about 1/2 teaspoon of your vegetable glycerin to the powder.

 

 

 

Finally, you will add your distilled water.  Ultimately we added about 2 tablespoons.  Lastly, mix to incorporate all of the ingredients together.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Applying Your Facial Mask

Once you have mixed your ingredients together, simply apply a thin layer of the lavender face mask to your face.  Then, relax and allow the lavender mask to harden.  Finally, once the mask has completely hardened, use warm water to remove the clay mask.

Other Ways to Use Lavender:

Natures Garden also carries a variety of other types of lavender as well.  So, let’s take a look at other ways to use lavender in your products.

Lavender Essential Oils and Lavender Flowers

First, let’s look at lavender essential oils.  We carry a couple of types.  First, of course, is our pure lavender essential oil.  Our lavender 40/42 essential oil can be used in a variety of soap and cosmetic recipes.  In addition to soap, you can use it in anything from powder, to lotion to lip balm to hair conditioners.  The sky is the limit.

Lavandin essential oil is next on our list.  For those wondering, “What is lavandin?”, it is a lavender hybrid.  Lavandin does have an aroma that is similar to a lavender essential oil but is not the exact same scent.  It is still a natural and pure essential oil as well.  It can also be used in a variety of soap and cosmetic products.   On a personal note, I especially love this essential oil mixed with peppermint essential oil.  When mixed 2 parts lavandin to 1 part peppermint essential oil, it smells amazingly fresh and clean!

Finally, our whole lavender flowers not only comes in a powdered version, we also carry dried whole lavender flowers.  These can be used infused in lotions, added to bath bombs, or used to create a lavender bath tea just to name a few.

Lavender Fragrance Oil

First, let’s talk about Natures Garden’s Lavender Flowers Fragrance Oil.  This lavender scent is that of true lavender flowers.

Next, on this list of Natures Garden fragrance oils is Lavender Luxury Fragrance Oil.  This lavender aroma starts with notes of lavender, bergamot, eucalyptus, along with citrus zest.  Then, it is followed by notes of lily and sage.  Finally, it sits on base notes of pine, cool camphor, and clove.

Of course, we couldn’t forget to mention Lavender Martini Fragrance Oil.  This one is unique and extremely popular here at Natures Garden, especially it soap.  I would consider this one a must smell fragrance.  To explain this one, think gin meets lavender with an effervescent pop.

Lavender Mint WOW Fragrance Oil is the perfect combination of both mint and lavender.  This lavender scent brings the two together perfectly.  This fragrance oil really is the balance without one overpowering the other.

Fun Lavender Facts:

Now, let’s talk about lavender itself.  Lavender grows wild in Southern Europe, Australia and the United States.  There are many lavender fields that you can actually visit.  Can you imagine visiting one of these farms and begin engulfed in the aroma of lavender?  To find just a few of these fields, read more on the country living website here.

While Natures Garden sells lavender only for use in soap and cosmetic recipes, it is often used in products like smoothies.  Check out these lavender facts and smoothies from Green Blender.

Another reason to love lavender is for its ability to repel insects like flies, fleas, and mosquitoes.  In addition to the fabulous floral aroma of lavender, they are so easy to grow.  It will make a great addition to your flower garden.  They also attract those adorable little butterflies.  Read more from Natural Living Ideas.

Best Wine Fragrance Oils

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!

Raspberry Cold Process Soap RecipeRaspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe

Today, we will show you how to make our Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe.  We swirled the cp soap then, topped it with raspberry melt and pour embeds.  This cold process soap making recipe uses Natures Garden’s Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.  This scent is a breeze to work with in cold process soap.  It gives you so much time to play.  In addition, it smells so strong and wonderful in the cured soap.  If you have not soaped with this scent, I highly recommend it!

Fresh Raspberry Fragrance OilRaspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil

Before we begin, let’s take a closer look at Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  We have searched literally 10 years for a nice, strong, true fresh raspberry scent that did not have oily green top notes.  This is an extraordinarily fresh raspberry fragrance oil by Natures Garden.  This raspberry scent performs perfectly in cp soap.  It showed no acceleration, no separation, no ricing, and no discoloration.  In addition, it was super strong after curing and is one of my personal favorite fragrance oils to soap with.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Total Recipe Amounts for Raspberry Embeds:

150 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
7 grams Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil
2 drops FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet
2 drop FUN Soap Colorant Neon Pink
3 drops FUN Soap Colorant Tomato Red

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Weigh Out Your Clear Soap Base

Weigh Out Your Clear Soap BaseFirst, we will weigh out and melt 150 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Then, you will need to melt it in the microwave in 30 second increments.  You will want to continue to melt the soap only until it is in a liquid state.  You want to be careful not to over heat the base.  As it is melting, stir the base in between each 30-second burst.

I created one round of berries for this recipe, placing 1-3 berries on each bar.  This recipe created 23 berries which I used on my 9 bars of soap.  If you would like to add more berries on top of your soap, you can create more.  Each additional berry will require about 5 grams of soap.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Color Your MP Soap

Color Your MP Soap
Once you have your soap melted, it is time to add your soap colorant.  You will need to add 2 drops of ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorant, 2 drops neon pink FUN Soap Colorant, and 3 drops tomato red FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, stir to fully incorporate the colorant.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Add Your Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil

Next, it is time to add your fragrance oil.  For this recipe, we are using Natures Garden’s Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.  So, at this time, add 7 grams of your Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Pour Your Soap into the Mold

Pour Your Soap into the MoldFinally, it is time to pour your soap into the mold.  You will need your raspberries/blackberries mold.  Then, pour your soap slowly into each cavity of the mold.  I also suggest using a container with a spout and emphasize slowly, as you can see, I may have overflowed my cavities a bit.  I was trying to take a picture and pour at the same time.  Once you have the soap in the mold, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol if you notice any air bubbles.  Allow them to setup before removing them from the mold.  If you have any overflow like I did, it will just remove very easily by tearing it off.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Lye Solution

Prepare Your Lye SolutionNow, you will prepare your lye solution.  First, weigh our 323 grams of distilled water.  Next, in a separate bowl, weigh out 116 grams of lye.  Then, slowly add the lye to the water.  You never want to add the water to the lye. Stir to completely dissolve the lye.  Set your lye solution aside for the moment and allow it to cool.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Prepare Your Oils

Prepare Your OilsWhile you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, prepare your oils.  In a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 212 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 128 grams of Avocado Oil, 42 grams of Grapeseed Oil, 85 grams of Cocoa Butter, 85 grams of Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 128 grams of Shea Butter, and 170 Sunflower Oil.  Then, melt your oils.  Once your oils are melted, set them aside to cool.  We want to allow both our soaping oils and our lye solution to cool to 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit.  You need their temperatures to be within 10 degrees of each other.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Colorants

Prepare Your ColorantsWhile you are waiting for your temperatures to drops, go ahead and get your colorants prepared.  First, we will prepare our titanium dioxide.  This will be used to create the white portion of the soap.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 7 grams of titanium dioxide.  Then, mix them with a small amount of your soaping oils that you prepared.  Stir to create a paste like mixture.  This will help the titanium dioxide disperse more easily in your soap batter.  Next, you will need another small bowl.  To this bowl, add 6 grams of the neon pink soap colorant, 3 grams of tomato red colorant, and 7 grams of the violet colorant.  Use a mixing spoon to mix the colorants together.  Set your colorants aside, we will come back to them.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Sodium Lactate

Next, we will also prepare the sodium lactate.  Sodium lactate is added to the soap to help harden it a bit.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 43 grams of sodium lactate.  Set this aside for now.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Before you begin putting together your soap batter, we have one last thing to prepare.  So, you will need one more small bowl.  In this bowl, we will add our Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil.  To the bowl, add 64 grams of the fragrance oil.  Also, set this bowl aside for later.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Preparing Your Soap Batter

Preparing Your Soap BatterNow, we will begin preparing our soap batter.  First, to your cooled lye solution, add your 43 grams of sodium lactate.  Slowly, stir your lye solution to incorporate the sodium lactate.  Next, add your lye solution to your soaping oils.  Then, use a stick blender to emulsify.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Add Your Fragrance Oil

Add Your Fragrance Oil

At this time, you will want to add your fragrance oil.  So, to your soap batter add the Fresh Raspberry Fragrance Oil that you weighed out.  Then, use your stick blender to incorporate the scent.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Separate Your Soap Batter

Separate Your Soap Batter
Now, we will begin separating the soap batter.  While we will be creating three colors, we will be separating it into four bowls.  So, to the first bowl, add 300 grams of soap batter.  Next, in the second bowl, you will also need to add 300 grams of soap batter.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe: Color Your Soap Batter

Color Your Soap BatterOne bowl containing 300 grams of soap batter will remain uncolored.  The second bowl that contains 300 grams of soap batter will be white.  So, to this bowl, add the titanium dioxide mixture you prepared.  Then, use your stick blender to incorporate the colorant.  Now, the white batter will need to be separated into two portions.  We will need to separate out about 100 grams of soap.  So, add 100 grams of the white batter to a small bowl.  You will use this portion in a later step to top your soap.  You can set it aside for now.  The remaining white soap will be swirled into the main portion of your soap.  To the larger portion of the soap, add your raspberry colorant that you prepared with the red, pink, and purple FUN Soap Colorants.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Creating the Soap

Finally, it is time to add the soap batter to the mold.  So, with your mold in front of you, you will begin creating your soap.  Pour the soap in vertical strips in the mold.  While most of your strips should be pink, some you will use the white and uncolored soap batter.  Continue this process until you have filled your mold.

Creating the SoapOnce you have filled your mold, you are ready to swirl your soap batter.  You will need your wooden skewer.  Then, place the tip wooden skewer into the soap batter.  Move the skewer in a circular motion to create swirls throughout the soap.  When you are happy with your swirls, remove the skewer from the batter.  Lastly, very gently tap your soap mold on your table top to remove any air bubbles.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Topping Your Soap

Topping Your SoapFinally, we will begin topping the soap.  You will need to wait for your white soap batter to thicken.  You want it to be at a frosting-like consistency.  Then, add it to your decorating bag or Ziploc bag.  Cut your corner.  Place a small dollop of soap in the center of each bar of soap.

 

 

Finally, it is time to use the raspberry mp embeds you prepared earlier.  Place your raspberries directly on top of the white dollop.  You can use 1-3 raspberries for each bar of soap.

Raspberry Cold Process Soap Recipe:  Curing Your Soap

Now, allow your soap to setup for about 24-48 hours before removing it from the mold.  Then, cut your soap.  Lastly, allow the raspberry cold process soap to cure before using it or selling it.

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: 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.
