Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Whole Flowers and HerbsNatural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Whole Flowers and Herbs

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. Plus, this herb has some added benefits of nutrients that are useful for nourishing the skin. We used this lovely herb in our Calendula Swirl Soap Recipe, which is both for decoration and to provide a soft exfoliation for the body.

Next, we have a fragrant herb that is great for exfoliation, which is the delightful Lavender Flowers Whole. These flower buds provide a more gentle exfoliation that would be perfect for the body. So, your body will feel and smell great! 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.

Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Cosmetic SaltNatural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Fine Cosmetic Salt

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. You can use Hawaiian Black Salt Fine Ground, Himalayan Pink Salt Fine Ground. or Dead Sea Salt High Minerals Fine Ground to add some nice exfoliating power to your homemade recipes. 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. If you don’t have a specific herb in mind, then you might as well try out the idea with something from home. There are even some instances where these house hold ingredients pair perfectly with your fragrance oil. Take a look at our ideas for homemade exfoliants and see what you think!

Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Oatmeal Natural Exfoliants for Soap Making: Oatmeal

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.

Next, you can use some granulated sugar in your various homemade soap recipes. While this ingredient won’t make your scrubs as abrasive as a salt scrub, the sugar is great for exfoliation!

Begin with four heat safe bowls.  Place 219 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in each bowl.  Use a microwave to melt the soap.  We recommend melting the soap base 30 seconds at a time until it is completely melted.

 

 

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-RecipeOnce it is melted, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s Salt Water Taffy Fragrance Oil to each bowl.  Stir well to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.

In the first bowl, add three drops of the neon blue soap colorant.  To the second bowl, add two drops of the neon pink colorant.  The third bowl will need four drops of the neon orange colorant.  In last bowl, place three drops of the neon green soap colorant.  Stir each bowl well to incorporate the colors.

Once the color is mixed,  pour your soap.  Pour each color into its own cavity of the mold.  Once the soap has setup, you can go ahead and remove the melt and pour soap from the mold.  Cut it into three equal sections.

Lastly, it is time to wrap your soap.  Using scissors, cut strips of parchment paper.  They need to be 6 inches long and 7 inches wide.  Wrap the soap with the parchment paper and use a twist ties to close the sides.  It will look similar to wrapped piece of salt water taffy.
