Since it is a type of bacteria that could be causing acne, this is a solution that is worth attempting. This is a great oil to try out as this sunflower oil will nourish and protect your skin from some potential issues that can cause acne.

Sunflower Oil Benefits Reduces WrinklesSunflower Oil Benefits Reduces Wrinkles

Sunflower oil is a nourishing cosmetic oil with healthy, fatty acids and vitamins that are nice for keeping your skin healthy. So, your skin can get the wrinkle fighting power it deserves without the clogged pores or nasty breakouts. This way, even the most sensitive skin can utilize sunflower oil to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This oil will sink down into the skin and provide the nutrients that skin needs to be healthy. So, your skin will be moisturized and wrinkles will begin to be smoothed. While you won’t completely lose your wrinkles overnight, this oil is known to reduce these signs of aging over time. This will lead to a complexion that is healthy with less wrinkles or fine lines

Sunflower Oil Benefits Anti-Inflammatory Sunflower Oil Benefits Anti-Inflammatory

Further, you can use sunflower oil to reduce inflammation of the skin. This benefit is derived from the Linoleic Acid in this oil that works along with the benefits that Vitamin E has for the skin. Together, these two ingredients are thought to decrease the inflammation you experience in your skin. So, this oil should help you be able to reduce problems like eczema, rashes, sunburn, acne and any other inflammation based skin disorders. Plus, it is believed that the healthy fatty acid in this oil will promote the development of new skin cells to rejuvenate your skin as you are reducing further inflammation and skin issues.

Sunflower Oil Benefits For Inside the Body

Simply, this lovely oil is derived from the seeds of a bright yellow flower that we all know and love! Sunflower seed oil is used in foods and sunflower seeds are often eaten as a snack. But, eating this plant seems to have some surprising benefits for certain aspects for the body. You can easily add some food grade sunflower oil to a salad to gain its supposed benefits. But, be careful with cooking the oil as it is said that this alters the integrity of many of the nutrients inside the oil. Nevertheless, sunflower oil benefits the inside of the body in addition to the previously discussed benefits for the outside of the body. So, this is really a wonderful oil for your body!

Sunflower Oil Benefits Naturally EnergizingSunflower Oil Benefits Naturally Energizing

While saturated fatty acids are bad for your body, the unsaturated fatty acids are very good for you! In fact, these oils are exact opposites when it comes to the effects they have on the body. While these bad, saturated fats will make you feel more sluggish, the unsaturated fatty acids will actually energize you! Your body needs these nutrients for a variety of functions, so adding this to your diet would be just what your body needs! Plus, it is believed that adding in some good fats can lead to an increase in your energy level!

However, this oil does have a higher amount of Omega-6 than other oils. So, you will want to boost your Omega-3 at the same time to prevent an imbalance of fatty acids. Although this fatty acid is often referred to as “bad cholesterol, a balance of all the healthy fatty acids is important. But, if you have a history of obesity or cholesterol, you may want to consult a doctor about whether this would be a good choice for you.

Sunflower Oil Benefits Reduce ArthritisSunflower Oil Benefits Reduce Arthritis

Due to the anti-inflammatory properties of sunflower oil, this oil may help to reduce many of the symptoms that accompany arthritis. While using this oil will not fix the underlying problem, it might be helpful for relieving some of the painful symptoms associated with this issue. Further, this oil contains nutrients that are said to work well to relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, which is a disorder where the immune system mistakenly attacks the joints as though it were foreign to the body. This disorder causes joint inflammation, pain, and a few other symptoms. So, sunflower oil, in some cases, has helped to lessen the pain of inflamed joints.

Wine Lotion Recipe

Wine Lotion RecipeWine Lotion Recipe

Our next recipe is a wine lotion recipe.  Like many of our customers, I too, love the wonderful aroma of red wine.  This homemade lotion recipe is scented with my favorite of Natures Garden’s wine scents, Shiraz Fragrance Oil.  This lotion contains many skin loving oils and butters like grape seed and jojoba.  So grab a glass of wine and get ready to prepare a couple bottles of wine scented lotion.

Wine Lotion Recipe Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Cocoa Butter Golden Natural
Grape Seed Oil
Jojoba Oil
Sodium Lactate
Silky Emulsifying Wax
Shiraz Fragrance Oil
Da Bomb Soap Dye Red
Da Bomb Soap Dye Blue
Vitamin E Oil
Vegetable Glycerin
8 ounce Clear Boston Round Bottles
White Lotion Pumps 24/410
Thermometer
Resveratrol Extract Powder

Wine Lotion Recipe Other Equipment and Ingredients You Will Need

Mixing Bowls (2)
Scale
Spatula
Distilled Water
Pots (For Double Boiler)
Stove
Ziplock Bag
Scissors

Wine Lotion Recipe Prepare Your Work Area

Before we begin, clean and sanitize your work area and utensils.  You will also need to do the same with the packaging supplies.  We will be using two clear 8 ounce Boston round bottle and two 24/410 white lotion pumps when we create this lotion recipe.

Wine Lotion Recipe Weigh Out Your Ingredients

Wine Lotion Recipe Weigh Out Your IngredientsFirst, in a pot, weigh out 425 grams of water.  You will need to heat the water to 180 degrees.  Hold it at this temperature for 20 minutes.  This will destroy any bacteria.

In a second pot, weigh out 48 grams grape seed oil, 24 grams silky emulsifying wax, 10 grams cocoa butter, 10 grams jojoba oil, and 6 grams vitamin e oil.  Then, melt these ingredients using a double boiler.  Make sure you stir the oil occasionally as they are melting.  While you are waiting, move to the next step.  We will come back to both of these pots when they are ready.

Wine Lotion Recipe Preparing the Other Ingredients

Wine Lotion Recipe Preparing the Other IngredientsIt is best to weigh the other ingredients out ahead of time.  This way you are prepared ahead of time.  This will allow you to move quickly as you are making the lotion.  Temperatures are extremely important to achieve a proper emulsion when creating lotion.  So, using a scale, weigh out the remaining ingredients.  You will need four small bowls as each of the following will go in a separate bowl.  First, weigh 8 grams of sodium lactate.  Then, in the second bowl, add 3 grams of resveratrol along with 12 vegetable glycerin.  Mix these two together well.  In the third bowl, prepare your fragrance oil.  Weigh out 12 grams of Shiraz Fragrance Oil.  In the last bowl, weigh out 10 grams of your optiphen preservative.  Set these aside, we will come back to them.

Wine Lotion Recipe Putting it all Together

Next, we will be combining our water with our oils.  Before we begin we want to be sure to point out a couple of things in regards to your temperatures.  At this point, your temperatures are very important.  You want both the oils and water to be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  If your ingredients are not at the proper temperature you may experience separation.  In addition, the temperature is important when adding your preservative.  You want to add your preservative around 120 degrees if you add your preservative at too cool of a temperature your mixture will separate from the finished lotion.  If your temperature is too hot it will burn the preservative off.
Wine Lotion Recipe Putting it all TogetherNow, we will begin combining our oils and water.  Once both the oils and water have come to the proper temperature, we will need to move quickly.  So, once your water has been heated, remove it from the heat.  You want to let both your oils and water temperatures to drop to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, add 8 grams of sodium lactate to your water.  Make sure you stir in the sodium lactate completely.  Now, add your oils to your water.  Then, use your stick blender to mix them.  Mix until you notice the mixture turn white in color as it emulsifies.  Again, remember to pay close attention to your temperatures.  You do not want the temperature to drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wine Lotion Recipe Adding the Other Ingredients

Wine Lotion Recipe Adding the Other IngredientsNext, let’s add our preservative.  Remember, this needs to be added below 140 degrees Fahrenheit, but at a temperature no cooler than 120 degrees.  When the mixture drops to around 120 degrees add the 10 grams of optiphen preservative.  Additionally, this is when the colorant should be added.  So, at this time add 7 drops of red soap colorant and 3 drops blue fd&c dye.  You will also add the 12 grams Shiraz Fragrance Oil you weighed out earlier.  Mix your ingredients together using your stick blender.  Now you will need the resveratrol extract powder mixture you prepared.  Earlier, we dispersed the resveratrol powder extract in vegetable glycerin so that it can be added to your lotion without clumping.  Finally, at this time, add the resveratrol mixture you prepared earlier.  Once again use your stick blender to evenly and fully mix all of the potion’s ingredients.  Once everything is mixed, allow the lotion to set up.  You will notice the lotion thicken more as it cools.  Once it has set up, you are ready to package it.

Wine Lotion Recipe Packaging the Lotion

Wine Lotion Recipe Packaging the LotionLastly, we will be placing our lotion into the 8 ounce lotion bottles.  I have found it easiest to do this using a zip lock bag.  So, place the lotion in a ziplock bag.  Then, cut the corner.  We will be using the bag sort of like you would a decorating bag.  Once you have cut the corner, you can place the opening over the opening of the bottle.  Squeeze the bag gently to add the lotion to the first bottle.  Then, fill the second bottle.  Finally, place a white lotion pump on each bottle.  Your wine scented lotion is now complete!

Bronzing Lotion Recipe

Do you desire a soft, sun-kissed glow for your skin without spending innumerous hours sunbathing? If so, then our shimmering bronzer lotion recipe may be just what you’ve been looking for. We’ve included ingredients such as cocoa power and mica to create an natural bronzing lotion that is soft and shines. Not only can you obtain a light summer glow, but a touch of sparkle as well.

Materials need for this recipe:

Sweet Almond Oil

Shea Butter Unrefined

Cocoa Butter Golden Natural

Sun Your Buns Fragrance Oil

SODIUM LACTATE

BTMS 25 Emulsifier

FRACTIONATED COCONUT Oil

VITAMIN E OIL (Tocopherol T-50) Natural

Cocoa Powder

24K Gold Mica

OPTIPHEN – Preservative

Disposable Pipettes

THERMOMETER

8 oz.  White PET Bullet Bottles

White Lotion Pumps 24/410

Distilled Water

Mixing Bowls

Stainless Steel Spoon

Stovetop

Melting Pot

Stick Blender

Scale
Begin by getting your work area ready. You will want to clean and sanitize your area and all of your packaging supplies. We also suggest that you wear you’re a hair net, gloves, and protective clothing while preparing this shimmering bronzing lotion recipe.
DSC_0592First prepare your water.  Some water will evaporate during this process.  For this reason you will want plenty of extra water.  You will need to have 425 grams of distilled water when you make the lotion.  Heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once you water reaches this temperature, keep it there for at least 20 minutes.  Doing this will destroy any bacteria that is in the water.  After 20 minutes has passed, remove the water from the stove top and use a scale to weigh out 425 grams.  To the bowl containing the water add 8 grams of Sodium Lactate.  Once added, mix well to combine the sodium lactate and water.  Set this mixture aside for the moment, you will need it a bit later.

DSC_0594Now, in a separate pot, weigh out 30 grams of the Fractionated Coconut Oil, 28 grams of the Sweet Almond Oil, 28 grams of the BTMS, 5 grams of the Golden Natural Cocoa Butter, 5 grams of Unrefined Shea Butter, 6 grams of Vitamin E.  Melt these ingredients using a double boiler.

 

Once the oils are melted and the temperature has reached around 140 degrees Fahrenheit, work quickly to add 14 grams of Natures Garden’s Sun Your Buns fragrance oil, 10 grams of Cocoa Powder Organic, and 5 grams of our 24K Gold Mica.

DSC_0575

You will once again need to move quickly for this next part.  You want to be certain that the oils and butters are both around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If they are not around the same temperature they may not emulsify.  Using a large mixing bowl, combine the oil mixture and the water mixture.   Using a stick blender, begin mixing.

 

DSC_0577When the mixture has reached 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the optiphen preservative.  Again the temperature is very important.  If you add the preservative when the temperature is too hot, it will burn off.  However, if the temperature is too low, it will separate out of the lotion.  So, at 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add 10 grams of the Optiphen preservative.  Once again, use a stick blender to fully incorporate the Optiphen.

Finally, let your bronzing lotion cool to room temperature and then place it into your white PET bottles and place a white pump on top.

With summer on the horizon, this is perfect for anyone looking for a light golden glow. This shimmering bronzer lotion recipe is perfect for a shimmer and bronze glow without sunbathing. We hope you enjoy making this recipe just as much as you enjoy using it. For even more fragrance fun visit all of our free craft recipes!
