There are many herbs that you can use to exfoliate your body. Some are more on the abrasive side and others are more delicate, but they all can be used to remove the outer layer of junk on your skin that you just don’t need. Although you can find all of the herbs you need under the Herbs & Spices tab of the NG site, we would like to share some of our favorite herbs to use as exfoliants in our homemade bath and body recipes. Depending on certain properties, like hardness, the exfoliating herbs may have different levels of effectiveness.

Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Poppy Seeds Whole

On great herb that you can use to create strong scrubs is the Poppy Seeds Whole. These seeds are hard enough to get a good scrub, which is perfect for feet and hands. Also, many people prefer this to salt for their more abrasive scrub recipes because you can use less and get similar results. This means less scrubby feeling with the same benefits. If you want to try this herb in soaps, then check out our Peppered Poppy Seed Cold Process Soap Recipe.

Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Juniper Berries Whole

Another fun herb that you can add to your homemade soaps is Juniper Berries Whole. These seeds are similar to the poppy seeds in abrasiveness, but they are a bit larger. The size can be used for a different appearance or to increase the exfoliation slightly. While the poppy seeds have a hard protective shell, these larger berries are hard and will be able to exfoliate a bit better. You could use this herb in your feet scrubs instead, or you could even add some of these berries to a recipe that used poppy seeds, too.

Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Calendula Flowers Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Calendula Flowers

Also, you can use Calendula Flowers in your handcrafted soaps for a lovely, light exfoliant. This is perfect for providing a lighter exfoliation for the body.

We included this lovely herb in our own recipes like the Lavender Luxury Cold Process Soap Recipe where we sprinkled Lavender Flowers Whole and Rose Petals Pink on top to provide a surface for exfoliation. Just note that incorporating this flower buds into your cold process soap recipes could result in the lavender turning a brown color. They are still good to use, but they may not match your colors.

Also, you can add on of our cosmetic salts to provide an exfoliant in your homemade soaps. These are on the abrasive side so be sure that you are using your soap on an area that is not sensitive.

We have used fine ground salt in recipes like the Total Hot Man CP Soap Recipe and it turned out great!

While there are many wonderful cosmetic grade ingredients at Natures Garden that you can include in your home made soap recipes, there are some ingredients you can find around the house that are perfect for exfoliation.

One way that you can have a soap that exfoliates naturally is by adding oatmeal. Embedding a bit of this ingredient into your soap will help you to scrub dead skin and toxins from your skin. Plus, you can change the intensity of the scrubbing power by different amounts of grinding. This means that coarse ground oatmeal will be more scrubby than fine ground oatmeal, which would be very mild.

Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Coffee Grounds

Another way to naturally exfoliate is by adding fresh ground coffee to your recipe. We did this in our Coffee Melt and Pour Soap Recipe and it turned out great.  Not only do the coffee grounds provide some mild exfoliation power, but the scent blends beautifully with the fragrance oil. We included a Fresh Brewed Coffee Fragrance Oil along with the real coffee ground and was blown away by the authenticity of the scent.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Sanitize and Prepare

Before you begin creating your soap, you will want to make sure that your equipment and work space are ready. So, clean off and sanitize a table or counter top that you can work on. Also, make sure that your equipment, including your microwave, is clean and ready to use. Another important preparation of Melt and Pour Soap is getting the spray bottle of rubbing alcohol ready to use. Finally, we would suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust Layer

First, we are going to create the Graham Cracker Crust Layer for our melt and pour soap. This will be the first layer that we will pour and it will be the bottom layer of our pistachio pudding soap. Also, you will want to get your soap mold ready before we begin melting this first layer. This way your soap won’t set up before you can get the mold ready.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Crust Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
6 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting the Ingredients

Now, you are going to need to weigh the 95 grams of cocoa butter melt and pour soap base. Once you have your soap ready, you are going to use the microwave to melt you soap using 30 second intervals. You will need to check and stir to ensure that your soap doesn’t boil. Once your soap is in a liquid state you are ready to move on to the next step.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

After your soap has melted you are going to add the scented oil. So, weigh and mix in the 4 grams of Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil. Also, you will need to add 4 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is because the fragrance oil may cause some discoloration in your soaps. So, we will use some color stabilizer to make sure that our soap stays looking bright and scrumptious. Once they are both added you will need to mix until they are fully incorporated.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Finishing the First LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Finishing the First Layer

Next, we are going to add the FUN Soap Colorants to the melted soap. For this layer you are going to need 6 drops of the Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops of the Brown Soap Colorant to create the perfect graham cracker crust color. Once these pigments are fully mixed, then you are ready to pour this layer into the square soap mold. Also, remember to spray with rubbing alcohol after this layer has been poured. Once the crust layer has completely set up you are ready to work on creating the next layer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: White Cream Cheese Layer

The Cream Cheese Layer is going to be the second portion you will need to create and pour. While this layer won’t have any color added, the rest of this layer will the same as the bottom crust layer. So, this next layer will be the same size and scent as the previous layer we created.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: White Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting Your Soap

Next, you are going to heat the 93 grams of melt and pour soap. Again, you will want to use the microwave in 30 second intervals. Remember to mix your melting soap, which will help prevent boiling. After your soap base is melted, you are ready to add the scent and color stabilizer.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting Your SoapPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting Your Soap

Now that your soap is melted you are ready to add the fragrance oil! So, take 4 grams of the Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil and stir it into your melted soap. Also, you will need to include 4 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to ensure that this layer stays uncolored. Otherwise, you could have some discoloration due to the Vanillin in this fragrance. Since this layer is meant to be a cream cheese color, it won’t look right if the fragrance discolors the soap.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Pouring the Soap

Then, you are going to pour the second layer into your square soap mold. Since you waited to mix this layer until the first layer has set up, you should be ready to pour this layer. First, lightly spray your crust layer with rubbing alcohol. This will help your layers stick to one another. Now you can pour this into the mold and lightly spray the top of this layer with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. Before moving on to the next step, allow this layer time to set up completely.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Pistachio LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Pistachio Layer

Next, we are going to be creating the pistachio layer. This vivid green layer will be the same size as the other two layers, but it will be a different color and use a different kind of melt and pour soap base. But, this portion will be created using a similar process as before.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Green Layer’s Weights and Amounts

93 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
2 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Melting the Soap

Similarly, you are going to need to melt 93 grams of melt and pour soap. However, this layer will use Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap instead of the white soap base we have used before. This will provide a brighter appearance for the pistachio layer. Also, you will still need to melt this soap using 30 second intervals in the microwave and stirring between heating periods.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, we are going to be scenting the third layer of the dessert soap recipe. So, add 4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil to your freshly melted soap. Also, we will need to include 4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer because this fragrance oil has a slight discoloration. If we didn’t use a color stabilizer, then the soap may appear more dull or even slightly brown. While this wouldn’t hurt the cleanliness of the bar, it could make it look less like pistachio pudding.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Coloring and Pouring the Soap

Now you are going to be coloring your liquid soap. So, put two drops of the Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant into the soap. You will want to mix well to blend in the ingredients from the previous step. Once it looks like everything is evenly dispersed, you will need to pour this soap into your soap mold. Just remember to spray with rubbing alcohol before and after you pour this layer to make sure your layers stay together and to release air bubbles.

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping LayerPistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping Layer

Lastly, we are going to be creating and adding the topping to our pistachio pudding soap! This will include both the whipped cream fluffy and the toasted, sliced almonds. The whipped cream topping will be made with a whipped soap base. Also, we will use citrus peel herbs to stand in for the sliced almonds.

 

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Whipped Topping Layer’s Weights and Amounts

46 grams Whipped Soap Base
4 grams Pistachio Pudding Cake Fragrance Oil
46 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 grams Vegetable Glycerin
4 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Pistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting the Whipped Soap BasePistachio Soap Making Recipe: Scenting the Whipped Soap Base

Vanilla Valentine Fragrance Oil plays with temptation while creating rousing room scenting products.  Those creating homemade air fresheners can incorporate up to 50% of this fragrance oil in their projects.  You can use this sweet fragrance oil in incense and smelly jelly recipes.  Also, if you are creating reed stick diffusers, you will enjoy this vanilla scent.  This fragrance oil was also found to create strongly scented aroma beads.

Candles and wax tarts can be made using up to 10% fragrance with vegetable and paraffin wax.  It does nicely in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and Pillar of Bliss.  Additionally, we have found both the hot and cold scent throw to be phenomenal in 100% soy wax candles.  We find that the natural color of our waxes represents this aroma well, therefore we do not recommend a colorant.  If you do wish to color your candles, you may use a small amount of liquid soap dye or shredded color blocks.  Do not use crayons to color your candles, they will clog your wick.
