Bronzing Lotion Recipe

Do you desire a soft, sun-kissed glow for your skin without spending innumerous hours sunbathing? If so, then our shimmering bronzer lotion recipe may be just what you’ve been looking for. We’ve included ingredients such as cocoa power and mica to create an natural bronzing lotion that is soft and shines. Not only can you obtain a light summer glow, but a touch of sparkle as well.

Materials need for this recipe:

Sweet Almond Oil

Shea Butter Unrefined

Cocoa Butter Golden Natural

Sun Your Buns Fragrance Oil

SODIUM LACTATE

BTMS 25 Emulsifier

FRACTIONATED COCONUT Oil

VITAMIN E OIL (Tocopherol T-50) Natural

Cocoa Powder

24K Gold Mica

OPTIPHEN – Preservative

Disposable Pipettes

THERMOMETER

8 oz.  White PET Bullet Bottles

White Lotion Pumps 24/410

Distilled Water

Mixing Bowls

Stainless Steel Spoon

Stovetop

Melting Pot

Stick Blender

Scale
Begin by getting your work area ready. You will want to clean and sanitize your area and all of your packaging supplies. We also suggest that you wear you’re a hair net, gloves, and protective clothing while preparing this shimmering bronzing lotion recipe.
DSC_0592First prepare your water.  Some water will evaporate during this process.  For this reason you will want plenty of extra water.  You will need to have 425 grams of distilled water when you make the lotion.  Heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once you water reaches this temperature, keep it there for at least 20 minutes.  Doing this will destroy any bacteria that is in the water.  After 20 minutes has passed, remove the water from the stove top and use a scale to weigh out 425 grams.  To the bowl containing the water add 8 grams of Sodium Lactate.  Once added, mix well to combine the sodium lactate and water.  Set this mixture aside for the moment, you will need it a bit later.

DSC_0594Now, in a separate pot, weigh out 30 grams of the Fractionated Coconut Oil, 28 grams of the Sweet Almond Oil, 28 grams of the BTMS, 5 grams of the Golden Natural Cocoa Butter, 5 grams of Unrefined Shea Butter, 6 grams of Vitamin E.  Melt these ingredients using a double boiler.

 

Once the oils are melted and the temperature has reached around 140 degrees Fahrenheit, work quickly to add 14 grams of Natures Garden’s Sun Your Buns fragrance oil, 10 grams of Cocoa Powder Organic, and 5 grams of our 24K Gold Mica.

DSC_0575

You will once again need to move quickly for this next part.  You want to be certain that the oils and butters are both around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If they are not around the same temperature they may not emulsify.  Using a large mixing bowl, combine the oil mixture and the water mixture.   Using a stick blender, begin mixing.

 

DSC_0577When the mixture has reached 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the optiphen preservative.  Again the temperature is very important.  If you add the preservative when the temperature is too hot, it will burn off.  However, if the temperature is too low, it will separate out of the lotion.  So, at 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add 10 grams of the Optiphen preservative.  Once again, use a stick blender to fully incorporate the Optiphen.

Finally, let your bronzing lotion cool to room temperature and then place it into your white PET bottles and place a white pump on top.

With summer on the horizon, this is perfect for anyone looking for a light golden glow. This shimmering bronzer lotion recipe is perfect for a shimmer and bronze glow without sunbathing. We hope you enjoy making this recipe just as much as you enjoy using it. For even more fragrance fun visit all of our free craft recipes!

bacon-candle-recipeHave you been thinking of what to the dads in your life on Father’s Day? So have we, and that’s why we’ve created this bacon candle recipe. This is a great gift idea for bacon lovers and dads alike. Not only will he adore having his very own bacon candle, but there is no hot wax involved in the creation of this bacon candle. This kid friendly project allows children the enjoyment of making their father a unique bacon scented candle, while you can rest easy knowing they won’t be burned. Plus, what shows you care more than spending time on a one of a kind gift that he’s sure to love?

Here are the ingredients you will need:

Pillar of Bliss Wax- 10 Pounds

Bacon Fragrance Oil

Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- BROWN 1oz.

Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red 1oz.

CD Candle Wicks (100 wicks)

Disposable Pipettes

1- 16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
(3) Ziplock bags for mixing colored wax
Hot Glue Gun
Disposable Spoons
Pencil

Scale

Toothpicks

Bacon-Candle-Step-1Using a hot glue gun, glue two CD-12 wicks to the apothecary jar.  Make sure they are place equally apart in the candle jar.
For the next step you will need three ziplock bags.  In each of the 3 bags, weigh out 120 grams of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.

 

Now, add 12 grams of Nature’s Garden Bacon Fragrance Oil to each bag.
Next, we are going to color the wax using Natures Garden Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. This candle colorant will be added straight to the ziplock bag just like you did with the fragrance. In the first bag add 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red and 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Brown.  This will be used for the darker red color.  Bag two will be used as the light pink color.  Dip a toothpick tip into the red spectrum candle dye and place the dye into the wax.  Dip the toothpick one more time into the red candle dye and work into the wax.  Lastly, dip another toothpick into the brown dye one time and incorporate into the wax.  The third ziplock bag will remain uncolored.  Shake each bag well.  Make sure all of the color and bacon fragrance oil is fully dispersed.

Bacon-Candle-Step-9Bacon-Candle-Step-10

 

 

 

 

Now, it is time to begin creating your candle.  We suggest using disposable spoons for this.  We will simply be layering the wax to create a bacon like look.  Start with the uncolored Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Place the wax along the bottom of the jar.  You will want to make a thin line of uncolored, bacon scented wax.  Directly on top of the uncolored wax, place a layer of the light pink wax.  On top of the light pink granulated wax, place a thin layer of the dark red wax.  Continue layering the wax until your jar is completely full.  Be careful when filling your jar.  You want to make sure the wicks remain centered as you fill the candle container.  Once you have filled the jar, use a pencil to curl the candle wicks.

IMG_0194Shadowing Natures Garden

The past couple of weeks we have had two high school seniors shadowing Natures Garden.  These two wonderful ladies, Kacie and Caitlyn, have been an absolute blast! We’re very sad to see them go but their time here was definitely well spent. Not only did they get the opportunity to see how we operate at Natures Garden, but they made some pretty cool projects along the way. Now, I’d like to share some of what these lovely girls have been working on during the past couple weeks.

Prior to starting any projects we needed to know what types of fragrance oils the girls liked most. This way we could have them making all sorts of projects with their favorite scents! Therefore, we had them go to the fragrance bar, which is located in the Natures Garden store, to smell all sorts of our delightful fragrance oils. After smelling everything that they could, Kacie and Caitlyn each picked out ten of their favorite scents. They also picked out some of their favorite recipes from our recipe box. Finally we could begin on the real fun, turning these fragrances into your very own soaps, candles, or anything else you can imagine.IMG_0153fragrance-barIMG_0154

 

 

 

 

The first project the girls tried out was the Hydrangea Candle Recipe. They used one of their shared favorite scents, Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil, and they both turned out great. Not only was their first project a complete success, but we were all pretty impressed with these candles and their colors choices.

Another beautiful creation was done using the Easter Confetti Soap Recipe. This fairly simple melt and pour recipe turned out to be a very lovely loaf. Not only did their soap loaves look fantastic but the Pink Orchid and Amber Fragrance Oil had their bars smelling amazing as well.confetti-soap1confetti-soap

 

 

 

 

One recipe that the girls were especially excited for was bath bombs. These bath time delights were made using, one of Kacie’s favorite fragrances, County Apple Fragrance Oil. Although the girls used the Orange Dreamsickle Bath Bomb Recipe, they gave it a slight twist by adding pink!bath-bombs2bath-bombbath-bombs-3

 

 

 

 

Next, the girls even learned how to make their own soap from scratch! They did an awesome in the pot swirl using the World Peace Cold Process Soap Recipe. The colors were vibrant and amazing just like the scent that was used, Fruity Rings Fragrance Oil.

world-peace-soap2

world-peace-soap3

 

 

 

 

Another method they learned in soap making was how to do hot process soap. The Purrs and Paws HP Soap Recipe was used to create these loaves and NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil was added as well. The loaves had glitter added and turned out to be quite pretty.

Also, the girls helped create a couple new recipes that will be coming soon! The first recipe is a melt and pour soap recipe that we really hope you’ll enjoy. The second recipe is new a lotion recipe that we are very excited to share with you.

It was great to have Kacie and Caitlyn working with us on all of these fun projects. It seems that these ladies got everything that they needed out of shadowing Natures Garden and have a better understanding of Nature’s Garden and what goes on here. They are both very funny and wonderful girls and we hope that they come back to visit us in the future! We would like to wish them the best of luck as they graduate from high school and prepare for college.  It truly was a pleasure to work with the two of you!

Bailey-Favorite-FragrancesBailey Favorite Fragrance Oils

Hello everyone, my name is Bailey! I work at Natures Garden during my summer breaks and have greatly enjoyed my time here. Although I may not work the entirety of the year, I still feel as though I’m part of the Nature’s Garden team. I’ve had quite a bit of fun here and have enjoyed being a part of many recipes. While working here I’ve found the following fragrances to appeal to me far more than any others.

 

Sun Ripened RaspberrySUN RIPENED RASPBERRY FRAGRANCE OIL

This fragrance oil begins with top notes of ripened raspberries, red delicious apples, and oranges; followed by middle notes of ylang ylang, rose, greenery, and tagette; well-rounded with base notes of vanilla beans.

With this fragrance oil, elegance is the first word that comes to mind when describing this upscale, complex fragrance blend.  A beautiful arrangement of sophisticated florals including peony petals, muguet lily and silk flowers (mimosa flowers), floral sandalwood and floral musk, with effervescent top notes of fresh peach, mandarin, and neroli blossoms.  This fragrance is similar to the scent of caress daily silkening.

Peppermint Patty

 

PEPPERMINT PATTY FRAGRANCE OIL

This fragrance oil is the aroma of creamy peppermint and vanilla with a strong down of bitter sweet chocolate.

 

There are a plethora of amazingly scented fragrances here at Natures Garden. Although these are definitely my ten favorite, there were many that made it very difficult for me to decide. Not only is there a wide variety of fragrances, but there’s an abundance of recipes and ideas that can be made into your favorite scents. In fact, I used one of my favorite fragrances, Lemon Sugar Fragrance Oil, in my spotlight project, Cold Fashioned Lemonade Soap. This was a blast for me to come up with and create. I hope you all have as much fun with your favorite fragrances as I do with mine!

Begin with four heat safe bowls.  Place 219 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in each bowl.  Use a microwave to melt the soap.  We recommend melting the soap base 30 seconds at a time until it is completely melted.

 

 

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-RecipeOnce it is melted, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s Salt Water Taffy Fragrance Oil to each bowl.  Stir well to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.

In the first bowl, add three drops of the neon blue soap colorant.  To the second bowl, add two drops of the neon pink colorant.  The third bowl will need four drops of the neon orange colorant.  In last bowl, place three drops of the neon green soap colorant.  Stir each bowl well to incorporate the colors.

Once the color is mixed,  pour your soap.  Pour each color into its own cavity of the mold.  Once the soap has setup, you can go ahead and remove the melt and pour soap from the mold.  Cut it into three equal sections.

Lastly, it is time to wrap your soap.  Using scissors, cut strips of parchment paper.  They need to be 6 inches long and 7 inches wide.  Wrap the soap with the parchment paper and use a twist ties to close the sides.  It will look similar to wrapped piece of salt water taffy.
