9 Ways to Use Lanolin

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Ways to Use Lanolin

Lanolin is one of those products that you don’t think about, but it is in probably some of the most popular skin care products around. It can also be found in cosmetics, first-aid salves and believe it or not in some industrial grade products such as lubricants and rust-proof coatings.

What’s amazing about this stuff is that it is all natural! It is an oil that comes from the wool of sheep and is nature’s “raincoat” for the animals. Lanolin protects them from all the elements around them; from the dampness of rain and snow to the drying effects of the sun. One of the things that I like about lanolin is that even though it is naturally derived from the wool of sheep, it in no way harms them! It is done cruelty-free! In today’s world of animal’s rights that is a pretty important factor!

Lanolin has the amazing ability to hold up to 400 times its weight in water which means, not only is it a super-moisturizer, but it locks that moisture in and will give you baby soft, supple skin.  Lanolin easily absorbs into the skin, but keep in mind, a little goes a long way!  We have below 9 recipes that incorporate Lanolin in the pure form that is an amazing ingredient to blend into lotions or balms, and Lanolin Oil USP Liquid which is less viscous and is wonderful for soaps and shampoos. We at Nature’s Garden hope you enjoy creating some of these for your family, friends, clients or customers! So here you are, 9 ways to use Lanolin in your creations.

 

99 ways to Use Lanolin Beard Balm Recipe ways to Use Lanolin Beard Balm Recipe

Our first recipe is the perfect balm for your men’s line of bath and body products. Beards and mustaches are incredibly popular among guys today. In many cases, you see more hair on their face than on their head, which may mean something, and I haven’t been able to figure it out yet. At any rate, I do have an idea that their beards can get as unruly head of hair! Beard Balm is a perfect way to tame that facial hair!  With skin healthy oils and butters such as, jojoba oil, olive oil and shea butter and lanolin, their skin will be soft and moisturized as well as their beards and mustaches. Then, add in some Cedarwood Virginia Essential Oil for that woodsy, masculine scent and you will have yourself a best seller among your clients with facial hair!

 

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Beard Soap Recipe Ways to Use Lanolin Beard Soap Recipe

The first step to having a good beard is to have a good soap. After all, beard is hair and the first step to having good hair is to have a good shampoo, right?

Our Beard Soap recipe is a good start to beard maintenance. It’s a hot process soap that uses liquid lanolin USP which has the same benefits as the lanolin that comes in the more solid form. You also have the nourishing oils and butters of jojoba, sweet almond, and cocoa butter, to just name a few. Your beard will feel soft and moisturized. Not only does this beard soap clean without stripping but it hydrates your beard, and it will do the same to your skin beneath. We used our Gurjun Balsam Essential Oil for a soft, aromatic fragrance that smells woodsy with a tiny bit of sweetness.

 

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Hydrating Hand Stick Recipe Ways to Use Lanolin Hydrating Hand Stick Recipe

Here’s a “handy” way to keep your hands moisturized and protected without the mess of carrying around a bottle of lotion. Our Hydrating Hand Stick is perfect for keeping in your purse, pocket, or even your kids’ backpacks! With skin happy ingredients like shea butter, olive oil and lanolin oil USP liquid, you can be sure your hands will always be shielded from the bitter winter elements. They will stay soft and hydrated and since the ingredients are easily absorbed into your skin you will not have that greasy feeling some hand lotions leave behind. We’ve chosen our Nectarine & Mint fragrance Oil that has a citrus scent with a light touch of mint. A perfect scent that does not become too overpowering.

 

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Cold Process Shaving Soap Recipe Ways to Use Lanolin Cold Process Shaving Soap Recipe

You would be surprised at how popular shaving soap really is. In all honesty, using shampoo on your beard is a big no-no! Shampoo is designed to strip all the oils and dirt from the hair.  That is all fine and good for your hair, but it’s not so fine and good for your beard. A dry beard is an itchy beard. You will want your beard moisturized and soft, with all those important skin oils still intact!

Our Cold Process Shaving Soap is the perfect gentle wash to keep your beard happy and healthy looking. We’ve used shea butter, apricot kernel oil and lanolin Oil USP liquid to help keep your beard hydrated and soft. Bentonite clay, which is not just for facial masks, gives this soap a nice glide to the lather and helps if you have oily skin. We’ve chosen our Black Ops fragrance oil that smells like the popular men’s cologne. It has a nice masculine scent of citrus followed by a nice woodsy undertone.

Our Pooch Smooch fragrance oil that inspired this recipe has a light scent of melons and cucumbers. How cute would these look in your line of doggy care products? I say they would look adorable!

Olive Oil Benefits

We at Natures Garden know the importance of understanding your ingredients. Any great business owner or at home crafter should know the properties of their supplies to create amazing products with purpose. Whether you are attempting to soothe your dandruff, clear your pores, or moisturizing your dry skin, you need to be able to choose the ingredients that will help you in your given situations. So, we would like to share with you some great olive oil benefits for all kinds of products and situations. This will give you a better idea of how this oil can work for you and your products. Thus, you will be able to find the perfect blend of ingredients to create something perfect for your situation. So, get informed and start crafting!

Olive Oil Benefits For Your ProductsOlive Oil Benefits For Your Products

Since you are going to want your products to serve a purpose and be the best it possibly can, you will want to understand what your ingredients actually do. While olive oil will provide your products with some amazing properties, not everyone may want these properties for their products. This is simply because each product is made for a different purpose. But, there are quite a few people that can really benefit from products that contain this cosmetic oil. So, check out the properties that olive oil can provide your soap with to see if this is the oil for you!

Olive Oil Benefits in Homemade SoapOlive Oil Benefits in Homemade Soap

First, you can use this cosmetic oil to perfectly craft your homemade soap. Just like any other soaping oil, olive oil has some specific properties that it can provide to your homemade soap!  One type of soap that you can create with this oil is called Castille Soap, which is a bar that only includes olive oil. This bar of soap is occasionally referred to as Baby Soap, as this oil provides a very conditioning and sensitive bar of soap. This bar would be very soft since this soaping oil is full of fatty acids that are great for your skin. Another type of soap that you can create with this oil is called Marseille Soap, which includes 72% or more of Olive Oil in the overall recipe. While these two methods for creating soap recipes that are great for moisturizing, these bars may be considered to be a bit more slippery than a typical bar. So, many soap makers will create soap recipes that use other oils along with olive oil. This way you can have a bar that is conditioning with other qualities that are important to you for soap!

Olive Oil Benefits for Making LotionOlive Oil Benefits for Making Lotion

Also, olive oil is great for nourishing dry skin! This cosmetic oil contains essential nutrients, like Vitamin E, that the skin needs to be healthy. This oil will soften, smooth, and nourish your dry or damaged skin. So, adding this oil to your homemade body lotion would add in this extra moisturizing power. Further, this oil is less likely to clog your pores and is able to sink deep down into the skin. So, your lotion will not just sit on the top layer of the skin with a greasy film. Instead, this oil will nourish the skin all the way down and promote healthy growth. Plus, your lotion would be perfect for more skin types, as your lotion recipe would be more compatible with more sensitive skin type.

Olive Oil Benefits in Homemade ConditionerOlive Oil Benefits in Homemade Conditioner

Also, olive oil is a great cosmetic ingredient for adding to your homemade conditioner recipes. This amazing oil is perfect for moisturized, softened, and healthier hair growth! This oil is especially wonderful for helping soothe brittle or thin hair types, as this oil has been known to strengthen your luscious locks. All you have to do is to add a bit of this cosmetic oil to your homemade conditioner recipe and you will have gorgeous locks in no time at all! The combination of this deeply moisturizing oil with your other typical hair oils is a perfect blend for a more moisturizing conditioner. So, this cosmetic oil is perfect for growing hair that is thick, healthy, and luscious.

Olive Oil Benefits for Lip Care ProductsOlive Oil Benefits for Lip Care Products

The best types of lip balm both moisturize your lips and protect them! So, you will definitely want to add in some olive oil to your own homemade lip balm recipes! This oil is especially wonderful for helping to soothe chapped, dry lips. While this oil alone won’t last quite as long as other oils may, it is a perfect ingredient to pair with a long lasting oil. This oil has amazing moisturizing power that will care for your lips even in the worst, coldest weather. This combined with a few other oils that are just as wonderful will create quite an amazing lip balm recipe!

Olive Oil Benefits For Homemade Shaving Cream

Another great bath and body product that you can create with this amazing oil is some diy shaving cream. Since olive oil is a moisturizing, thick, luscious oil, it is the perfect choice for protecting your skin as you shave. So, using this oil in either a recipe for shaving cream or shaving soap would be a great idea. Furthermore, a recipe for shaving that includes this cosmetic oil will moisturize and care for your skin. So, you have the benefits of lotion and you won’t have nicks from your razor. It is a win all around!

Olive Oil Benefits For Your BodyOlive Oil Benefits For Your Body

Of course, any great product needs to benefit your body in some way. Luckily, this is one of the reasons why olive oil makes such a great ingredient for your homemade bath and body products. Whether you are making lotion, soap, conditioner, or anything else for your body, this cosmetic oil is sure to have you covered. With its conditioning, softening, and healing properties, olive oil cares for your skin the way it deserves! Obviously, this means that you will be pampered with full moisturizing power and loving care of a sensitive cosmetic ingredient. So, check out the benefits that olive oil has for your body below.

Olive Oil Benefits DandruffOlive Oil Benefits Dandruff

Dandruff is truly a pain to deal with and can be hard to control. While some find dandruff to be gross, this is just what naturally happens when your skin gets too dry. Just like the rest of your skin, your scalp needs to be moisturized and cared for. However, it can be easy to forget this because we expect our natural oils to keep up. But, these oils could be getting stripped due to your shampoo. So, you may need something to rejuvenate your scalp and balance your healthy oils. One way you can moisturize this skin and eliminate your dandruff is to try out some olive oil in your hair care regimen. Just know that it can take a few washes to remove the extra oil from your hair. But, it is absolutely worth it to moisturize your scalp and hair for only a few extra washes!

Olive Oil Benefits Promotes Healthy SkinOlive Oil Benefits Promotes Healthy Skin

Since olive oil contains a variety of nutrients that are perfect for the skin care, it is great for making your skin look vibrant and healthy! So, this is a perfect ingredient for your skin. Not only will this cosmetic oil help you obtain the glowing skin you always knew you had, but this oil is said to soothe and protect against many skin conditions. The nutrients in olive oil are said to help improve issues with acne, or inflammation. Some have even found this oil to protect your skin against psoriasis. However, we can’t guarantee that olive oil can prevent these serious conditions. So, olive oil may be a cosmetic wonder that is perfect for achieving flawless skin.

Olive Oil Benefits for Wrinkles and Sagging SkinOlive Oil Benefits for Wrinkles and Sagging Skin

Repeated use of this cosmetic oil may actually be able to help reduce certain signs of aging! First of all, the moisturizing strength of this oil rejuvenates your skin cells.  Not only does this luxurious cosmetic oil moisturize your skin, but this lovely ingredient contains various vitamins and nutrients that are perfect for beautiful skin. These nutrients include vitamins A and E as well as nutrients that have been known to have anti aging properties. These lovely nutrients can actually help to smooth and lessen any existing wrinkles that you may have! So, this cosmetic oil would be perfect for creating a natural face cream.

Olive Oil Benefits Removing Make Up

Further, olive oil is great for removing all of your stubborn make up. First of all, this wonderful oil is perfect for removing make up from your eyes and is even good enough to remove waterproof mascara. While this product isn’t too harsh for your skin, it is able to dissolve and remove makeup very well!  Also, this cosmetic oil is sensitive enough to use around your eyes. Not only will olive oil function as a perfect makeup remover, but this oil will moisturize your skin, too. This means that you can have healthier, younger looking skin just by removing your makeup at night. So, its something you are already doing, making this cosmetic oil is perfect way to shorten your beauty routine!

Olive Oil Benefits Soft ExfoliationOlive Oil Benefits Soft Exfoliation

Another great way to use olive oil is as a light, natural exfoliating agent. Since this oil isn’t harsh on skin, it would be a perfect way to rejuvenate your face! This oil will lightly remove all the dead, dry skin and reveal the healthy skin below. Thus, this cosmetic oil will leave you with a refreshed face that has all its dry skin removed.

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.

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.

Then, grab your spatula to help you mix in this bowl of ingredients. Again, you are going to need to fold these previously weighed ingredients into your whipped soap base mixture. Make sure that everything is thoroughly mixed together before you move on to the next step. After everything is mixed in well, you are ready to move on to the next step.

After all of your ingredients have been added and mixed in the bowl, you are going to whip the mixture one more time. 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! You can try it out now or just move on to the next step for packaging.

Whipped Shaving Cream

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!
