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.

 

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Pooch Smooch Solid Shampoo Bar Recipe Ways to Use Lanolin Pooch Smooch Solid Shampoo Bar Recipe

Washing your dog can be such a hassle sometimes. If your dog doesn’t like bath time and you have a large puppy dog, it can start out looking like something out of a wrestling match!

Our Pooch Smooch Solid Shampoo Bar recipe won’t make getting Fido into the tub easier, but it will make the process of soaping them up a little less crazy! With these shampoo bars shaped like cute doggy bones, this is a gentle and easy soap recipe that uses our Oatmeal melt and pour soap, some skin beneficial Vitamin E and Lanolin Oil USP liquid. Your furry friend’s skin and fur will be moisturized, soft and have a nice, clean feel to their fur. 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!

 

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Rejuvenating Foot Balm Recipe Ways to Use Lanolin Rejuvenating Foot Balm Recipe

Feet have it hard, wouldn’t you agree? You stand on them, walk on them, run on them, stick them into heels, tennis shoes, flip-flops. Or you just go barefoot! This happens to be one of my favorite things to do in the summertime! They support you all day, every day. Give your feet a much needed treat!

Give this Rejuvenating Foot Balm a try for those tired dogs! With shea butter, olive oil and lanolin oil USP liquid, it will give your feet some moisturizing protection.  You will have soft, smooth skin that will thank you for giving them a lift. We made it even better by adding essential oils that will help perk up your feet, and your nose too! We’ve chosen Peppermint (Redistilled), Tea Tree Australian, and Eucalyptus Globulus essential oils which are awesome for relaxing your body, soothe sore muscles and help heal skin conditions. After a long day, no matter what it is you do, give this foot balm a try!

March 17 is a wonderful day if you are Irish. Not many countries have a day dedicated to celebrating their heritage, beliefs and traditions all over the world! Even if you are not lucky enough to have Irish blood coursing through your veins it doesn’t really matter! You can still partake in the fun traditions the Irish have shared with the world! Green beer, corned beef and cabbage, leprechauns and wearing green are just a few ways this amazing country loves to express their heritage loud and clear! 

Crafters are always looking for ways to enhance any kind of holiday or season and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception.

This is such an awesome fragrance and the candle is incredibly easy to create!

Bath Bombs For KidsBath Bombs For Kids

As a parent, I know how difficult it can be to get some kids to take a bath. It can literally become a chore for them and for you. Even if they have the tub filled to the top with toys and bubbles, it can still be just a boring chore for them. And while there isn’t anything wrong with bubbles in the bathtub they can also be boring. How about livening up bath time with a fun bath bomb just for kids? Nature’s Garden has created some Bath Bombs for Kids that will surely make bath time a lot less boring and a lot more fun!

The ingredients used in most of the bath bombs are baking soda: a natural deodorizer that helps keep your skin soft and smooth. Citric acid: this ingredient puts the fizz in any bath bomb recipe and also helps the bath bomb produce foam. Each bath bomb has a different oil used that will help keep little one’s skin soft and hydrated after the fun is over.

 

Bath Bombs for Kids Camouflage Bath BombBath Bombs for Kids Camouflage Bath Bomb

Bath bombs don’t have to be all girly! This Camouflage Bath Bomb will be a big hit with little boys right off the bat! The cool camo colors of green, tan, brown and black will catch any little boy’s eye right off.  We’ve chosen Deadly Weapon fragrance oil to turn this kid bomb into a big kid bomb! It has a rugged, masculine scent of spice and leather. Tucked inside the bath bomb, though, is a neat little army guy that will appear when the bath bomb has completely dissolved! How neat would these be to create these as a party favor or to just make for any little man in your life?

 

Bath Bombs for Kids Muddy Pig Bath BombBath Bombs for Kids Muddy Pig Bath Bomb

Muddy Pig Bath Bomb is a totally cute way for kids to jump in the tub to get themselves clean! It’s a bright pink ball with brown, muddy spots all over it, but what’s inside is what gives this bath bomb its name! A tiny, pink toy pig is hiding in the middle, waiting for bath time to be over! We’ve used baking soda, citric acid and apricot kernel oil to keep your little one’s skin soft and smooth. Butterfly Flower fragrance oil is what we chose for this bomb. A light, green floral bouquet with a touch of tang! It’s the perfect scent for any little kid wanting to get clean.

 

Bath Bombs for Kids Cow Pie Bath BombBath Bombs for Kids Cow Pie Bath Bomb

Cow Pies don’t sound like a good way to get clean! Well, of course, it’s not THAT kind of Cow Pie, but a Cow Pie Bath Bomb! Using the base mix of baking soda, citric acid and apricot kernel oil, your little cowboy or cowgirl will have soft, squeaky clean skin when it’s all said and done. And to keep them in the bath without getting bored a surprise awaits them when the bath bomb has fizzled itself out! A tiny little cow that can hang out in the bathtub with them while they bathe! We chose the fragrance oil Hayride to compliment this farm-inspired bath bomb. A sweet balsam and cedar wood scent to remind you of time spent outdoors!

 

Bath Bombs for Kids Superman Bath FizziesBath Bombs for Kids Superman Bath Fizzies

Not all bath bombs have to be round in shape. You can mold them into anything or any shape you want! For our Superman Bath Fizzies, we used a mini ice cream scoop and don’t they look just like scoops of Superman Ice Cream? Make sure your kiddos aren’t tempted to take a nibble! With their bright colors of blue, red and yellow they are definitely eye catching! And as they fizzle away in the bathtub, you can smell our Strawberry Soda Pop fragrance oil, that reminds you of fizzy bubbles, strawberries and sugar! This bath fizzie will make bath time a sweet experience!

 

Bath Bombs for Kids Dinosaur Egg Bath BombBath Bombs for Kids Dinosaur Egg Bath Bomb

I don’t know too many little boys who are not fascinated at some point with dinosaurs. They’re amazing creatures of the past that make some of us happy that they no longer exist. So if you have a little boy or even a little girl that loves dinosaurs, this Dinosaur Egg Bath Bomb would be a perfect bath time treat for them. On the outside, it looks like a dinosaur egg, and each layer reveals a new color as it melts away in the bath water until out pops a baby dinosaur that was waiting to hatch! The fun part is not knowing what kind of dinosaur is hiding inside. Kids can have fun guessing which type of dinosaur will appear before the bath ends! To help give this bath bomb a tropical feel, we chose Bermuda Triangle fragrance oil. An excellent fruity blend of melons and citrus fruit with the sweet tang of McIntosh apples!

Snakes in the Grass Bath Fizzies do not look like your typical bath bomb, but that’s okay! You get the same reaction in your bath water just like you would with a regular bath bomb. We got creative using Hawaiian Black Salt for the dirt and little white candy ball sprinkles added in to make it look more like potting soil! Hawaiian Black Salt also makes a wonderful exfoliator that is both gentle and beneficial to the skin! Even kids’ tender skin! The fragrance oil we chose was Mr. Pepper MD which smells incredibly similar to the always popular soda pop, Dr. Pepper.

Neapolitan Candle RecipeNeapolitan Candle Recipe

Did you know that Neapolitan ice cream originated in the late 19th century in Italy? Most likely in the city of Naples. Italy was actually the originator or all ice cream, or gelato if you will. Neapolitan ice cream was actually inspired by Spumoni. Spumoni is a three flavored ice cream that used pistachio, cherry and chocolate ice cream with a fruit and nut layer in between. So why vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate? When ice cream made it’s way to the states these were the most popular flavors at the time. And in elementary school, do you remember sampling freeze-dried Neapolitan Ice Cream that the astronauts were able to take with them into space? I can remember! The texture was crumbly and it melted quickly the minute it touched your tongue, but I’ll stick to the regular Neapolitan ice cream thank you very much! Who doesn’t love this classic flavor?  You have three yummy flavors all in one bite! Today, Nature’s Garden is sharing with you their Neapolitan Candle Recipe. An eye-catching layered candle recipe to mimic this classic, old-time ice cream.  When you have finished creating this fun new candle, check out an easy recipe for Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich Cake! It’s truly magnifico!

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: The 3 Fragrance OilsFor this candle recipe, we will be using three different Nature’s Garden fragrance oils for the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla layers of your homemade candle. For the chocolate layer, we have chosen German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil. It smells of rich chocolate cake with hints of pecans, vanilla, and coconut.

Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil

The last oil is Vanilla Insanity fragrance oil. The strongest vanilla scent that we offer!  It is a sweet vanilla scent with notes of French Vanilla, creamed butter, cotton candy, maple sugar, and of course, vanilla beans.

All three of these fragrances will blend and compliment each other as your candle burns through the layers. You will have a house smelling of an Italian bakery!

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare wax for the Strawberry Embeds Part 1

We will be using our Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax for our embeds.  Pillar of Bliss is a soy and paraffin blend that has wonderful scent retention as well as a wonderful cold and hot throw. To work with Pillar of Bliss, melt the wax to a temperature of 195 degrees F and add your color. Let the wax cool to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your fragrance and let it cool to 175 degrees Fahrenheit before pouring into your molds. When melting any kind of wax, though, we suggest the double boiler method. Place on your stove, an old cake pan or pot with at least a 1/2 inch of water, place your pouring pot inside the cake pan or pot to create a double boiler.

For our Neapolitan Candle Recipe, we need to first prepare the strawberry embeds that will top your candle. Using a double boiler, melt 2 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax.

Prepare the Strawberry Embeds:  Adding the Candle Dye

Prepare the Strawberry Embeds:  Adding the Candle DyeYou always want to be careful adding candle dye to your creation. Our Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye is concentrated and a little can go a long way.  Always start small to test the color you are trying to achieve. We suggest using toothpicks for this process. So take a toothpick, dip into the green Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. Now you dip the toothpick into the melted wax. Mix to incorporate the color.

 

Then you fill only the leaf portion of the strawberries embed mold. Let this cool down and harden.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the wax for the Strawberries Embed Part 2

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the wax for the Strawberries Embed Part 2Next, we need to prepare the red wax for the strawberries. Using your double boiler, melt 10 grams of Pillar of Bliss, stirring to help with the melting process. Take your toothpick, dip it into your red Spectrum Liquid candle dye and add it to your melted wax.  Next, add 1 gram of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil and stir to incorporate it. Now you can add this melted wax to into the remaining portion of the strawberry cavity. Allow this to setup before removing from the mold. Set your strawberry aside to top your candle later.

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan Embeds

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan EmbedsNow we are going to work on our pecan embeds. First, you need to weigh out 20 grams of Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Then, using your double boiler melt the wax, stirring occasionally. Once this has melted, use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of brown Spectrum liquid candle dye and yellow Spectrum liquid candle dye. Stir to incorporate this and then pour into your pecan embed mold.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan Embeds
You will make 6 pecans total. Allow your pecan embeds to cool and setup.  Once they have setup, remove your pecans from the mold and set them aside
.  We will need them when we begin topping our candle later.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepping your Candle Jar

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepping your Candle JarNow you will want to prepare your candle jar. First and foremost you will need to have the correct size wick for your jar of choice. Prior to ordering wicks, measure the diameter of your jar. The size of your wick depends on the diameter of your jar. We are going to use 2 CD-10 size wicks. CD wicks are our most popular candle wicks. They are easy to work with and give a nice, clean burn for your candle. If you need further assistance with figuring out your wick size, check the description of the wicks for size recommendations based on the diameter of your jar. Once you have chosen your wick, you will use your hot glue gun to firmly adhere the wicks to the bottom of your container. Simply dab a bit of glue to the bottom of the metal part of your wick and press it firmly to the bottom of your jar. Repeat the process for the second wick. Keep in mind that as your candle cools, adjust your wicks so that they are straight and stay centered.

Another trick that you can do to make pouring your wax easier is to warm your jar beforehand. Simply turn your oven on to the lowest temperature, place the container on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. You do not want your jar hot, Just warm and still easy to handle without burning yourself. Warming your jars prior to pouring into them will help the wax adhere to the jars better.  This will help eliminate the wet spot look.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate Wax

Let’s talk Joy Wax. Nature’s Garden Joy Wax is a blend of soy and paraffin that is amazingly easy to work with. It melts beautifully and sets up smooth and creamy. You also get an awesome cold and hot scent throw! When working with Joy Wax, we suggest melting to 200 degrees F. You can add your candle dye at this temperature, but allow it cool to a temperature of 170-175 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your fragrance. When your wax has cooled to 160-165 Fahrenheit you can pour your wax into your container of choice.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate WaxWeigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt using your double boiler. Once this has melted you will need to add a tiny amount of brown Spectrum liquid candle dye using your toothpick. You are going for a chocolate color. Mix this to blend well. When your wax has cooled to the suggested 170 degrees F you may now add 9 grams of German Chocolate Fragrance Oil. Stir well to incorporate the fragrance.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate Wax

 

Next,  pour the candle wax into your prepared jar.You need to allow this wax to cool and set, adjusting your wicks so they stay centered in your candle jar.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the First Layer of Strawberry Wax

Next, melt 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt in your double boiler. Once again, using a toothpick, add a tiny bit of red liquid candle dye to your melted wax and blend well. You are going for a pink color for this layer.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

 

 

Allow the wax to cool to the suggested temperature and then add 9 grams of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil. Stir this to blend the oil and wax well.

 

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

 

 

Pour this candle wax directly on top of your chocolate layer and allow this layer to cool adjusting your wicks as it sets up before moving on.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare The First Layer of Vanilla Wax

Now we are going to create the vanilla layer of our candle. Once again, weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt in your double boiler.

Once this has fully melted and cooled to 170 degrees, add 9 grams of Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil. Stir well to blend the fragrance and melted wax.

Pour the white wax directly on top of the pink wax and once again, allowing this layer to cool and harden, adjusting your wicks straight before moving on.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Chocolate Layer

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Chocolate LayerNow, it’s time to work on the second half of the candle. We will start with the chocolate layer. Weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt the candle wax in your double boiler. Once it has completely melted, add the brown Spectrum liquid candle dye using the toothpick method. Stir to incorporate the colorant and once the wax has cooled to the correct temperature, add 9 grams of German Chocolate Cake fragrance oil and stir well to combine. Pour this wax on top of your cooled and set strawberry layer. Allow this to cool and set up before moving on.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Strawberry Layer

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Strawberry LayerNext, it’s time for the second strawberry layer. Weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt the Joy Wax in the double boiler. Once that has melted completely you can add in your toothpick of red Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and mix to combine. Once again, allow the wax to cool before adding in 9 grams of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil and mix well. Pour this strawberry layer onto the chocolate layer and allow to cool and harden before moving on.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped WaxNeapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

Next comes the “whipped cream” for your candle. First, weigh out 150 grams of Joy Wax and once again, melt it in your double boiler. Once this is completely melted and cooled, add 15 grams of Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil and stir well to incorporate the scent. Carefully pour into your mixing container and allow this melted candle wax to begin to setup. Now, begin whipping the wax to a frosting-like consistency.

 

Next, top your candle with the whipped wax giving it the look of a whipped cream topped sundae and then place your strawberry and pecan embeds on top for the final touch! You may want to use your candle right away, but it is suggested to allow your candle to cure for about 3 days.  Then, trim your wicks to about 1/4″ before burning your homemade candle.

So would you like a cool looking cake to go along with your cool looking candle? Check out this very easy recipe for Neapolitan Ice Cream from Food Network. This amazing looking dessert is created with yummy layers of ice cream sandwiches, strawberry and mint chocolate ice cream and topped off with a chocolate hard shell topping.

15 Best St. Patrick's Day Fragrance Oils15 Best St. Patrick’s Day Fragrance Oils

Traditionally, spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 21, but to me the unofficial start to spring is St. Patrick’s day. I think the reason for that is St. Patrick’s Day color is green and the official “flower” is the shamrock and to me that says spring is arriving! What started out as a religious feast day in the 17th century has turned into a worldwide celebration of parades, wearing o’ the green, music, dancing and of course eating corned beef and cabbage! (My personal favorite!) So let’s celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with some fresh new fragrances to add to your line of soaps. Here are Nature’s Garden’s 15 Best  St. Patrick’s Day fragrance oils.
