Before you begin creating your skin loving shaving soap recipe, you need to make sure that you are fully prepared to create bath and body products. First, you are going to want to get together all of the supplies and ingredients that you will need to create this product. You are not going to want to have to stop working half way through your project to look for a mixer or a clean bowl. Plus, locating everything prior to working ensures that you will have everything you will need to finish your recipe. You don’t want to be half done and realize you are missing a key ingredient. So, get together everything you need and set it all near your work space.

Not only do you want to have a fun time creating this project, but you are going to want to make sure that your body product is clean. While this seems obvious, mistakes can happen if you are not prepared prior to working. So, you should make sure all of your equipment is cleaned and sanitized before you begin working. This means washing the bowls, mixing utensils, and the hand mixer. Furthermore, you will want to clean the surface of your work space. This can prevent contamination of your product from setting down your spatula between mixing stages. So, cleaning your equipment and work space will ensure that your product will

First, you are going to weigh out a few of the ingredients that you are going to need in a later step. So, retrieve the shea butter, the Strike a Pose Fragrance Oil, the Optiphen Preservative, and one of your small sized bowls. Then, tare out the weight of the small bowl on your scale and add your ingredients. You will need to include 12 grams of the shea butter, 4 grams of the Strike a Pose Fragrance Oil, and 4 grams of the Optiphen Preservative. Now, you are going to set this bowl aside for a later step. We weighed these ingredients first because it will be easier to mix in later if it is pre-measured and ready to add to the mixture.

Next, you are going to prepare your whipped soap base. So, retrieve your deep mixing bowl and the container of whipped soap base. Now, tare the weight of the bowl on the scale. Then, weigh out and add in 454 grams of this Whipped Soap Base. After, you are going to have to whip your weighed soap base. So, grab your hand held mixer and begin whipping the soap base. Continue whipping the whipped soap base with your hand held mixer until your whipped soap base begins to look like a bowl of fluffy whipped vanilla frosting. Once you get your soap base to this frosting like consistency, you can stop mixing, you are ready to move to the next step.

Then, you are going to add the Rose Clay Powder into your freshly whipped soap base. So, take one of your small mixing bowls and weigh out the rose clay powder. Remember that it should be 4 grams of this powder. Now, retrieve your spatula and the bowl with your mixture. You will begin to fold this powdered pink clay into your whipped mixture. You need to make sure that everything is mixed together very well. Also, be sure that you scrape the sides of your bowl as you work. Paying attention to this will make sure that you have incorporated any of the powder that may have collected on the edges.

Everything should be folded well and mixed together, but you will need to whip the batter one more time. So, grab your bowl and the hand held mixer. Now, you are going to need to whip your mixture for the final time. This will be the last time before you will package up your finished Whipped rose clay shaving soap, so be sure to mix well. Once your shaving soap mixture is at the whipped frosting consistency, again, you can stop. Now, your product is ready for you to use!

Before you begin making our Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe you will want to clean and sanitize your work area. We also recommend wearing protective clothing such as gloves, a hair net, and one of Natures Garden’s adorable aprons. Not only will they protect your clothing, but you’ll look fabulous while making your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting OilsPumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Double Boiler

One more thing before we start, you should know, placing your oils and butter on direct heat can burn your oils. For a double boiler, you will need two pots. Fill one of your pots with water. Place this pot on the stove using low heat. Then, add your weighed out butters and oils to the second pot. Place the second pot in the first pot containing the water.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Weighing-OilsYou will begin by weighing out the following, 136 grams Coconut 76 oil, 93 grams Sunflower Oil, 74 grams Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 62 grams Shea Butter, 50 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax, 20 grams Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 20 grams Pumpkin Seed Oil,12 grams White Beeswax. Now, you should place these ingredients in your double boiler. Allow them to melt.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Colorants

While you are waiting for your oils to melt, you can go ahead and prepare your colorants. You will need three small mixing bowls. While we will also be using Natures Garden’s Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, this will not be needed until later in the recipe. For now, we will just be preparing the powders that are needed for coloring. Once you have prepared them, you can set them aside, we will come back to them.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Orange LayerBowl One: The Orange Layer

To your first mixing bowl, weigh out and add grams of orange peel powder. Then, to the powder, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. Now use one of your mixing spoons to stir the ingredients. You are looking for a paste like consistency. Just make sure you have removed any lumps in the powder. Creating a paste allows the powder to disperse better, or more evenly in your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Brown LayerBowl Two: The Brown Layer

In the second mixing bowl, weigh out and add 4 grams of your pumpkin pie spice blend. Again, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. You want to mix them again with a clean spoon to create a paste.

Bowl Three: The White Layer

To bowl three, we will just be weighing out the titanium dioxide. You simply need to weigh out two grams of titanium dioxide oil dispersible. Since we will be adding this to our oils, you do not need to create a paste with this one.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Other Ingredients

Next, once your oils have melted, remove them from the heat. You will need to watch the temperature closely. This step is extremely temperature sensitive. The reason for this is, the optiphen. Optiphen is a preservative used to prevent bacteria in the scrub. While typically optiphen is only added to products that contain water, we chose to add it because scrubs tend to come in contact with a lot of water. It needs to be added at 120 degrees. If it is added at a higher temperature, above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. However, adding it below 120 degrees Fahrenheit will cause separation.

Once your oils reach the magic number of 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the following ingredients, 18 grams Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil, 5 grams optiphen preservative, 5 grams vitamin E oil, and 15 grams arrowroot powder. Mix well to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding SugarNext, add your white granulated sugar. Mix thoroughly, incorporating the sugar completely into the oils. Then, divide the mixture into three equal parts. This will mean you will be adding approximately 394 grams of the mixture to two empty bowls, leaving the remaining in your current mixing bowl.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Colorants

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Pumpkin-ColorantNow, let’s add some fun to the scrub! Colors! Remember those colorants we prepared earlier, this is when you will need them. Go ahead and get them. In your first bowl, add the titanium dioxide oil dispersible, this will be your white layer. Mix well to fully incorporate the powder. Now, to bowl two, add the pumpkin pie spice blend paste to your sugar mixture. Stir the paste into the sugar scrub until it is fully dispersed. Finally, to bowl the last powder add the orange peel powder blend, along with two drops of the neon orange Fun Soap Colorant. Again, mix well to incorporate the colorant evenly.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding the Scrub to Your Jars

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe LayeringFor the next portion of the pumpkin scrub recipe, you will need to allow the mixtures to come to room temperature. Also, be sure you do not see any oil sitting at the top of the product before moving to this step. Once you are ready, we will begin adding the sugar scrub to the jars. You will need seven four-ounce jars clear PET jars. Also, have seven 58/400 white dome lids ready.

We began layering our scrubs with the brown, pumpkin layer. However, you can begin with whatever color you choose. Another option would be to create more layers. While we only created three layers, you can make as many layers as you wish. So, here is how we created our layered scrub. You will begin by filling each of the seven jars 1/3 of the way full with the brown portion of the sugar scrub. Now, fill another 1/3 of the jar with the white portion of the scrub. Finally, top the jar off with the orange portion of the scrub. Once your jars are filled, whip away any residue on the jars. Then, place the white dome lids on top.

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this emulsified Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe with us. Let us know what you think! Also, we would love to see how you have created your body scrubs. Show us your pictures by tagging us on Instagram @ngscents.

Boston Tea Party FragranceBoston Tea Party Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden was inspired by our very own American History.  On December 16, 1773, the colonists protested against taxation without representation by the British Government;  they were throwing shipments of tea into the Boston Harbor.  This was a key event that lead to the American Revolution.  In 2009, groups of Americans, in cities all over the USA, began throwing modern-day Tea Party Protests to denounce government spending, taxation, and the erosion of our constitution.  Although these protests were not commonly reported on the news, they are indeed gaining in momentum.  Due to the love we have for our country and for our constitution, we here at Natures Garden decided to create a fragrance called the Boston Tea Party.

Cannabis Rose Fragrance Cannabis Rose Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Cannabis Rose Fragrance Oil has been reviewed by our customers and the reviews are in!  One customer stated “If you’re looking for a nice grownup rose scent with a touch of a little something extra then this would suit you just fine”.  Did you know?  The plant name cannabis actually came from the Greek Kannabis.  So in staying with the Greek theme, there are several myths that tell the legend of the rose.  The rose was created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers.  She used the body of a lifeless nymph to house the flowers.  She then asked Aphrodite to give the flower beauty and a name, Dionysus to add nectar, giving the flower a sweet scent, and the three Graces to give it charm, brightness, and joy.  Finally, Apollo was asked to shine on the flower, allowing a beautiful bloom.  As for a rose having those pesky thorns, thank Cupid for that.  It is said that one day, busy cupid stopped to smell a rose.  Unknown to him however, a bee was hidden inside.  The agitated bee flew out of the rose and stung cupid.  In a fit of anger, he pulled out his arrow, and shot the rose.  Ever since, thorns have appeared on roses.

Caramel FragranceCaramel Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Caramel is often regarded as a staple for nearly every single delectable dessert. Whether it is drizzled over a cheesecake or gushing out of an oven fresh brownie, caramel never seems to disappoint a crowd. Heck, it has even been known to transform healthy foods into tasty treats that are worthy of the biggest sweet tooth. Not only can you sweeten the deal on a big green apple, but caramel has a scent just as delicious as its taste. The Caramel Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is so true to this decadent aroma, that you might just think you opened a fresh bottle of homemade caramel syrup.

What Does Caramel Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Natures Garden’s Caramel Fragrance Oil is a buttery, toffee caramel aroma.  Great to use by itself or to mix for creative fragrance blends.

How Do Our Customers Use Caramel Fragrance Oil?

Whether you’re a seasoned soap maker or one of the new soapers on the block, our Caramel Fragrance Oil is a great fragrance to use for your soap making recipe. This candy scent can be added to bath oils, soaps, and bath gels at a maximum recommendation of 5%. The Natures Garden cold process soap testing results have shown that our caramel fragrance oil works well in homemade soaps. Not only did this fragrance produce a perfect pour, but there wasn’t any ricing, acceleration, or separation. A bar using this scent has the potential to discolor to a beige and will maintain a light scent retention. However, a lighter bar is possible for those who desire one. Since the vanillin content is 2.6%, vanilla white stabilizer can be used to achieve a lighter bar. Further, we recommend using brown soap colorant and orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for this fragrance. Never use candle dye in any body products.

Homemade scenters may find our Caramel Fragrance Oil to be a perfect addition to any candle, perfume, or cleaner. First, candle makers may add this fragrance to either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax at a maximum usage of 10%.  This sugary scent performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and soy wax. Also, it is nice and strong in both aroma beads and soy wax. We suggest using 2 drops brown liquid candle dye and 1 drop orange liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or to shred a small amount of a brown color block and an orange color block into your melted wax. Remember, crayons aren’t sufficient substitutes for colorants and will clog your wick. Second, those making lotions, perfumes or cleaning products can use up to 5% of this fragrance oil.  Also, this fragrance will perform perfectly in perfumes. Lastly, do-it-yourself room scenters can use this scent at a 50% usage rate for potpourri, reed diffusers, or incense.

So what are you waiting for? Natures Garden’s Caramel Fragrance Oil is a delectable scent that not only works well in soaps, candles, and a multitude of other delightful homemade products, but it smells great too!
