Further, there are all kinds of other ways that you can perfectly use this herb. If you are interested, then you can continue reading this blog to learn more about the uses of ground pumice stone.

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits? : What is Pumice?

First of all, pumice isn’t really an herb. This cosmetic ingredient is actually a type of rock. This rock will form certain types of magma that are cooling. In the case of this cosmetic ingredient, the pumice stone would be ground up to be used in all kinds of bath and body recipes. But, not all pumice starts out in such a small form. In fact, some of the pumice stones that are formed can be quite large!

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits? : How is Pumice Made?

Simply, the pumice stone is a type of volcanic rock that is formed from cooling magma. But, there is a bit more you can learn about the formation of this special rock. First of all, there is a slight difference between magma and lava. While these two words are very similar, the difference is that the magma is stuck underground and lava flows above ground.  Sometimes the magma will become lava after a volcano eruption. Other times, the magma will cool underground before it gets the chance to make it to the earth’s surface.  In both of these cases, there is a potential for pumice to form. But, the rock that will be formed from magma that rapidly cools under the ground is more common for industrial use.

However, pumice isn’t formed from just any type of magma. These cosmetic rocks are made from magma that is frothy, full of gases, and cooled rapidly.  The gases will form the little holes that we see in the pumice stones. Once the liquid around the gas solidifies it will leave the air pockets that we see in the hardened rock. If the pumice doesn’t form underground, there is one more way that it can be created. You can have pumice form after a volcano erupts. Once the volcano erupts any of the frothy magma that is spewed out has the potential to quickly cool into pumice as it falls back to the earth.

However, this volcanic rock can be found all over the globe, including the United States.  Basically, you can find pumice anywhere there was gas and water in magma that is cooing rapidly. So, many of the volcanoes that form near a coast will likely have pumice being created nearby. You can even find this stone in the deepest depths of the ocean, as there places in the oceanic crust where water sinks below the crust and can lead to pumice!

Green Tea Scrub RecipeGreen Tea Scrub Recipe

Scrubs are incredibly popular these days! They are easy to make and most of the time, they require just a few ingredients. However, Nature’s Garden has a new scrub recipe that would be an amazing addition to your personal collection or to add to your line of bath and body products for your customers. Our green tea scrub recipe is full of skin nourishing ingredients such as green tea powder, argan oil and mango butter. Your skin will be shiny and glowing after just one use! You’ll be pleased to find out that this simple little tea leaf can do wonders for your skin!

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: The Green Tea Rundown

Let’s talk about this amazing green leaf before we get started. Out of all the types of tea in the world, green tea’s history is the longest and most documented beverage across many southeast Asian cultures. As far back as 600 A.D., a most important book regarding tea was written by Lu Yu. His book was called Cha Jing, or Tea Classic. Not only is this book an amazing documentation of the history and culture of China, but it detailed exactly how a cup of green tea should be made and how it should be served. Tea is an incredible part of Asian culture and there are even ceremonies that include serving green tea.

Only recently has green tea been introduced to the western part of the world and in the past decade, green tea has developed quite a reputation as a healthy food. Much research has been done to find out how green tea positively affects the body. Green tea has a huge amount of antioxidants that help fight free radicals. Free radicals damage the skin, causing premature aging or even skin cancer. Another thing, green tea is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Products containing green tea are perfect for those with sensitive skin that may help soothe it. Also, a specific antioxidant in green tea called catechins, is an anti-bacterial agent and this can help with those who suffer from acne and improve the overall appearance of their complexion.

As a side note, Natures Garden sells our herbs for external use only. We do not sell them as food items. The information we provide is for educational purposes only. This information is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease. This information has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Let’s Talk About Some Ingredients

So, we have included some amazing skin loving ingredients in this facial scrub. Let’s talk about a few of them.

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Argan OilGreen Tea Scrub Recipe: Argan Oil

First, is the argan oil. Argan oil is an amazing skin product! This oil is easily absorbed into the skin, making it a fantastic oil to include in your hair care and skincare formulations.  Argan oil also allows the skin to breathe and is used in many acne-fighting formulas.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Mango ButterGreen Tea Scrub Recipe: Mango Butter

Mango butter is a wonderful addition to this scrub! Mango butter is an exotic, luxury oil, which melts on the skin; providing skin softening and moisturizing qualities. It is also said to reduce the signs of aging by reducing wrinkle formation.

 

 

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Green Tea PowderGreen Tea Scrub Recipe: Green Tea Powder

Well, we all know how amazing green tea can be for the skin. Green tea powder is an excellent addition to cosmetics and soap due to its antioxidant properties and gentle exfoliation. However, it also is a wonderful, natural colorant for any type of soap making! When used in melt and pour soap you will get a nice green color. In cold process soap, you will have an olive color to your soap.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Sugar

Did you know sugar can actually be good for your skin? I found that fact very interesting. First, sugar is a natural humectant which means it helps hydrate your skin and then keep that moisture locked in. Second, sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that helps promote new cell growth. Lastly, sugar is an excellent, natural exfoliant that is gentle to the skin.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Chubba Dubba Weight Loss Fragrance Oil

Chubba Dubba Weight Loss Fragrance Oil has an interesting story behind the creation of it. Before designing this fragrance, Nature’s Garden did research to find out which aromas helped to decrease appetite.  They then had their perfumist create this blend using high concentrations of essential oils. This fragrance oil is an aromatic blend of Sicilian orange, lemongrass, lemon slices, jasmine, green tea, and Tahitian vanilla. While we do not make any health claims pertaining to this fragrance, we believe that you will truly enjoy this enlightening blend.

Why Chubba Dubba though?  We named this fragrance chubba dubba because this is how we respond to cute chubby babies. So, while this may seem like a funny name for a fragrance oil, it smells yummy in any kind of bath and body product!

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started with making your scrub, you will need to take a few steps to ensure your creating will go smoothly. First, give your work area, along with your packing materials, and equipment a good cleaning and sanitizing. Also, we strongly suggest wearing protective clothing, gloves while you are preparing this recipe. One more thing to be sure of, have all your equipment and ingredients at an arm’s reach. This will help you move along with no interruptions.

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Using The Double Boiler

In the first step of this recipe, you will want to set your double boiler up. If you do not have a double boiler, you can create one simply by taking a smaller size pot and setting it in a larger size pot. You will then add a couple of inches of water to the larger pot. You can go ahead and turn your burner on to medium. By the time the water has heated up, you will be ready to add the waxes and oils in for melting.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Weighing out the Oils, Waxes and Butters

Now you will weigh out the oils, waxes and butters. Place you small on the scale and tare out the weight. To the smaller pot, weigh out 136 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil, 113 grams Argan Oil, 68 grams Shea Butter, 68 grams Mango Butter, 45 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax and 9 grams of White Beeswax.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Melting the Oils, Waxes and Butters

Once you have all the oils, waxes and butters weighed out, take the pot and place it in the larger pot or pan with the heated water.  Allow the contents to melt at a gentle heat, stirring occasionally. Once they are completely melted you can remove this pot from the heat.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Prepping the Green Tea Powder and Vegetable Glycerin

While you are waiting on all the oil and waxes to melt, you can do some prep work with the other ingredients. First, you will start with the green tea powder and vegetable glycerin. So in a small bowl, weigh out 6 grams of green tea powder and 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. You can set this bowl aside for the moment.

 

 

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Prepping The SugarGreen Tea Scrub Recipe: Prepping The Sugar

Next, you can prepare the sugar. In a large mixing bowl, go ahead and weigh out 680 grams of granulated sugar. You can also set this aside for the time being.

 

 

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Prepping the Fragrance Oil, Vitamin E and OptiphenGreen Tea Scrub Recipe: Prepping the Fragrance Oil, Vitamin E and Optiphen

One last step that you can prepare is the fragrance oil, vitamin E and the optiphen preservative. In a small bowl you can weigh out the 5 grams of Optiphen,  5 grams of vitamin E , 9 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer and the  9 grams of Chubba Dubba Weight Loss fragrance oil. Chubba Dubba Weight Loss has some vanillin in it so we are using the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer as a precaution to the fragrance oil turning the scrub brown in color. Also, we have included a preservative, Optiphen. This will allow you to prepare the recipe ahead of time without the issue of it going bad. Go ahead and stir this mixture to combine everything together and set it aside as well.

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Adding the Fragrance, Vitamin E and Optiphen

Once your oils have completely melted and you have removed the pot from the heat, you will be adding the last three ingredients. However, it is important to wait for the temperature of the oils and butters to drop before doing so. You want the temperature to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the correct temperature to add the Optiphen too. If it is added at a higher temperature, then the heat may destroy any of the preserving qualities of the Optiphen. So when the butters and oils have reached the correct temperature,you can go ahead and add in the prepared fragrance mixture.

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Adding the Oils Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Adding the Oils

Now we are going to add the melted oils to the sugar. Take your bowl with the sugar that has been pre-weighed and add in the oil/fragrance mixture. Mix these together combining everything thoroughly.

 

 

 

 

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Adding in the Green Tea MixtureGreen Tea Scrub Recipe: Adding in the Green Tea Mixture

Next you will be adding in the green tea mixture you prepared earlier. So go ahead and add this to your sugar/oil mixture. stir this well to disperse everything evenly.

Green Tea Scrub Recipe: Adding Your Scrubs to the Jars

Lastly, you will divide your scrub into their jars.  However, before you add your facial scrub to the jars, you will need to allow it to come to room temperature. Once it has reached that point, you can now divide the scrub into seven 4-ounce jars. Add your lid on top and they are ready to use!

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blood Orange Fragrance OilOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blood Orange Fragrance Oil

Before we get started, did you know? The Blood Orange is actually native to Italy and their dark, red coloring comes from anthocyanins, an antioxidant that is more common in flowers and fruit, but not citrus fruit. What do blood oranges taste like? These oranges have a unique flavor compared to other oranges, with a strong raspberry-like flavor with undertones of citrus.

Now let’s talk a little about the fragrance oil. Blood Orange fragrance oil works wonderfully in cold process soaping. There is no discoloring, separating or ricing. Also, there is no accelerating so you have time to play when using this citrus fragrance oil in cold process soap. Plus the fragrance will stay strong through it’s cure time! The scent is a perfect orange scent! Bright, crisp and tart with a touch of floral in the base note is the best way to describe this fragrance. We know you will love this scent whether you use it in bath and body products or even in candles! It has a lovely, strong cold and hot throw!

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Before You Start Soaping

Before you get started on your soap making, it is always best to clean and sanitize your work area! Make sure you have washed and dried all your equipment and packing materials. Another good tip is to have all your ingredients and supplies within reaching distance! This helps ensure that as you are working everything is ready and on hand to make the process move smoothly. We strongly suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, face mask and safety glasses. Last but not least, if you are new to cold process soap making click here for basic soap making class. Also, before attempting to make any type of cold process soap, please become familiar with Soap Making Safety Class.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepping the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepping the Embeds

Our first step is preparing the orange slice embeds. You will need to make a total of 16 orange slices and for this your will be using a mini lemon/lime mold from flexiblemolds.com. These molds are perfect for soaping and even candle making. They are durable and clean up quick and easy! So go ahead and chunk up your Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Next,  weigh out 145 grams. After adding the soap chunks to a microwavable bowl and placing it in your microwave, melt the soap using 30 second intervals, stirring the soap each time, until it is completely at a liquid state.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the fragrance and colorOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the fragrance and color

Now that you have your soap melted, will be adding the Blood Orange fragrance and color. So, next, you will weigh out 7 grams of Blood Orange fragrance oil and 3 drops of Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, adding it to the melted soap. Stir this well, making sure the color and fragrance are well blended.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the Embeds

The last step is pouring the soap into the mold. Have your mini lemon/lime mold ready and add the soap to each cavity of the mold. Once you have all the soap poured,  you will now go ahead and spritz the top of the soap with the rubbing alcohol you have ready in a spray bottle. This will help to release any air bubbles. You will let this sit until cool and firm.  You will need to make a total of 16 orange slices.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Removing the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Removing the Embeds

So now that your orange slice embeds are set up, go ahead and remove them from the mold. Next, you will once again use the rubbing alcohol. Spritz your orange slices and sprinkle them with the sugar. The sugar will give your orange slices a candied look!

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Lye Solution

Now you will be starting the lye portion of your soap. First, you will weigh out 260 grams of distilled water in a bowl. Next, using a separate bowl, you will weigh out 95 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. Now, set your lye solution aside for the moment and allow it to cool.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your OilsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Oils

At this time, you will prepare your oils while you are waiting for the lye solution to cool. In a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 68 grams of Apricot Kernel Oil, 68 grams of Argan Oil, 68 grams Avocado Oil, 171 grams Coconut Oil-76, 34 grams Grapeseed Oil, 102 grams Shea Butter, 68 grams Palm Oil, 68 grams Olive Oil Pomace, and 34 grams Macadamia Nut Oil. Next, you will melt your oils and once your oils are melted, you will set them aside to cool. You will want to allow both the soaping oils and the lye solution to cool to room temperature. You want the temperature to be within 10 degrees of each other.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your ColorsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Colors

So while you are waiting for your temperatures to drop, you can move ahead and prepare your colorants. First, you will prepare the titanium dioxide. This will be used for the white swirls of soap. In a small bowl, weigh out 5 grams of titanium dioxide. Then, mix that with a small amount of the soaping oils you have prepared to create a paste-like mixture. Mix this well. This will help the titanium dioxide to disperse more easily into the soap batter. You can set this aside for now.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the Sodium Lactate

Next, we will be moving onto the sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is used in cold process soaping to help harden the soap and allow a better release from the soap mold. So, in a small bowl, weigh out 16 grams of sodium lactate and set this aside for the moment.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance OilOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Before we get started on our soap batter, you will want to have your fragrance weighed out and ready to add. So, in one last small bowl, you will weigh out 51 grams of Blood Orange fragrance oil. Set this aside also.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Mixing the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Mixing the Soap Batter

Now we are ready to prepare the soap batter. Your oils and lye solution should be at the temperature stated above. So to the cooled lye solution, add your 16 grams of Sodium Lactate. Carefully, stir your lye solution to incorporate the sodium lactate. Now, slowly add the lye solution to the soaping oils. Then, using your stick blender, emulsify the ingredients together.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding in the Fragrance Oil

Once you have emulsified your soap batter, you will add in the fragrance oil. So to the soap batter, add the 51 grams of Blood Orange Fragrance Oil that you weighed out previously. Then, use your stick blender, incorporate the scent into the batter.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap Batter

Next, we will separate the soap batter for the two colors. So, into your first bowl, weigh out 272 grams of the soap batter into a separate bowl and add in the 5 grams of titanium dioxide we weighed out earlier. You can go ahead and stick blend this to combine.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Coloring the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Coloring the Soap Batter

You will not need to weigh out the remaining batter since this will be one color. So, to the soap batter that is left, add the 1 gram of Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant. Now you can stick blend this to combine.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blending the ColorsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blending the Colors

Now we are ready to combine the two colors together. So to the orange soap batter, add in dollops of the white soap batter. Once you have all the white added into the orange bowl, you will begin to swirl directly in the bowl. You can do this using your spatula, or even a wooden skewer, swirling the white batter into the orange batter.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the SoapOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the Soap

Now you are ready to pour your soap into the mold. Have the mold set in front of you and pour the swirled batter into the mold. Then, gently tap the mold on the table to help remove any air bubbles that may be trapped in the batter and smooth the surface of your soap.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Topping the SoapOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Topping the Soap

Finally, we are ready to add our orange slice embeds to the top of our soap! Take your orange slice melt and pour embeds and arrange them evenly across the top. We found that if we added the slices to the four corners first, it helped keep the other slices evenly spaced out.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Curing Your Soap

When you make any type of cold process soap, you will allow the soap to set up for about 24-48 hours before removing it from the mold. Once you have removed it, cut the soap equally into 16 pieces. Lastly, you will allow the Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap to cure before using or selling.
