Whipped Shaving Cream

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

whipped shaving soapIf you are looking for a great homemade whipped shaving cream recipe, Natures Garden has one for you!  With a wonderfully rich and creamy lather, this thick shaving cream will leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.  In fact, after you make this shaving recipe, you will love it so much that you may never buy the store bought version again.  Plus, since this recipe is a homemade one, you can scent your shaving cream to your liking.  Natures Garden has a wonderful selection of body safe fragrance oils both feminine and masculine, and even a few truly unique ones too.

This light and fluffy cream will give you a close shave every time, and you only need a very small amount of the shaving cream to accomplish this.  Because this homemade shaving cream contains the ingredient Bentonite Clay, it makes the shaving lather slicker, allowing the razor a slippery layer to provide a sleek, nick free shave.  But, the bentonite clay benefits do not stop there.

Bentonite Clay also helps to sweep away impurities on the skin.  It can add a silky, polished feel to a product.  But, for scenting purposes in a finished product, the best benefit of Bentonite Clay is the fact that this clay allows for an even dispersion of scent throughout the whole product; working as a fixative.

Rich and exotic Mango Butter is also another stellar ingredient in this recipe.  Mango Butter is a luxurious butter that melts on the skin allowing for great moisturizing and softening effects.  The addition of this ingredient in your body products is even believed to reduce wrinkle development.

These two powerhouse ingredients together along with a few other necessities produce a whipped shaving cream that is very easy to make, very easy to use, and is a fraction of the cost of store bought kind.

To view the complete whipped shaving cream recipe, you can simply click on this link.  If you are interested in other easy to make, homemade bath and body products, candles, or home scenting products, please visit Natures Garden’s website.  The projects and instructions are listed under the Free Recipes and Classes area, and can be scented in an array of various fragrance oils; so there is something for everyone!

Personalizing Your Pampering Products

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Kristin Rosio- Da Bomb Cosmetics

I have always had a love for bath and body products. I would always make gifts and give them to friends and family as Christmas gifts. As a young teen, I took classes on soap and toiletry making. I went to Cosmetology school after I graduated high school. A few years later I was working with children who had disabilities and part time dabbling with bath bombs and selling them at a local flea market. A few months later, I had a lady ask if I did parties, and little did I know, that she would inspire me to go in that direction. I officially started DBC in January 2012. (I started the research in August 2011). The theory behind DBC is that everyone should be able to create their escape by personalizing their pampering products. It has come with it’s share of triumphs and frustrations, but I enjoy the journey none the less. The more I started showing my products at craft and vendor expos the more positive feedback I received. One day, I had a customer tell me she loved it so much that she would like to sell it. And today, that is where I stand now. Starting another exciting business venture in the world of direct sales. I will begin accepting consultants this year while I keep the integrity of manufacturing the products by hand. This has truly been an amazing experience that I cannot wait to see grow into something more. I will also continue to be the main product developer. That is the best part of my job, its fun and I love developing new products. I also love being able to create a product and still allow the freedom for my customers to personalize it for themselves. The one thing I have learned from this all is to follow your dreams and don’t’ give up.

Candles and Wax Dipped Critters

Friday, May 17th, 2013

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Creatively Handcrafted

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I started candle making over 12 years ago as just a hobby.  I love candles and wanted to give it a try.  I enjoyed making candles, however, life got in the way & I ending up taking a hiatus for about 5 years.  Only making candles for certain people.  I recently restarted with a whole new look, new name and all new candles.

What products do you make and sell?  I make all types of candles as well as wax dipped critters.  Recently I have tried my hand at some soap making & bath melts.  Thanks to Natures Garden for the recipes and ideas to try.

What are your business goals?  My new goals are to build my business with regular repeat customers.  I want to provide a quality product that people can enjoy just as much as I did when I created it.  I am currently working full time trying to get my business restarted.

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I always get my fragrances from Natures Garden.  I find that they are reasonably priced and always excellent quality.  I recently purchased items for bath melts.  I would have never even thought of trying to make anything else but with the recipes it seemed too easy not to try.  I can’t say that I have a favorite because I have not received anything I didn’t like.
