Pumpkin Sugar Scrubs

Pumpkin Spice ScrubsWhat a fun time I had with the Pumpkin Sugar Scrubs Recipe as my first solo attempt at melt and pour homemade soap making.  We have a wide variety of pumpkin products such as molds, pumpkin fragrance oils, pumpkin powders, and even pumpkin recipes to satisfy your craving for this seasonal scent.  For now, I’m all about making melt and pour soaps and learning all I can about the different products here at Natures Garden, learning the techniques, and trying out the fabulous recipes.  I decided that making small, solid pumpkin sugar scrubs as my first official project was appropriate for this time of year.

I am brand-spanking-new to the wonderful world of soap making and part of the fun is figuring it out! I did some research on Pinterest and looked over a couple of our solid sugar scrubs recipes before coming up with this ridiculously fun recipe:

Ingredients used:                                                                                            

 

Tools needed:Silicone Soap Mold - 24 Mini Pumpkins

I included turmeric and carrot powder in the recipe both for their coloring properties and skin-loving benefits.  As this was my first attempt to make this recipe, I carefully prepped my work area and laid out all of the ingredients and tools I would need for this recipe.   Below is the step-by-step instructions that I followed:

Step 11. Place the silicone pumpkin soap mold off to the side.
2. Measure out your powders! I did this by placing one of my glass measuring containers on the scale, taring it to 0, then adding my powders one at a time (tare in between the powders if you’d prefer not to do any math).
3. Add 30g vegetable glycerin to your small glass bowl with your powders and stir until it is thoroughly mixed and you have created a paste free of lumps.  Place to the side.
4. Measure out your sugar and place to the side.
5. Measure out your oils.
6. Cut 175g of your melt and pour base and place in you microwavable bowl.
7. Microwave your soap in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, making sure it is melted. If you have a more powerful microwave, you can do it for shorter bursts of time.
8. Once that soap is completely melted, add your Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance oil and your sweet almond and pumpkin seed oil; stir thoroughly.
9. Then pour your powder paste and add your 20 drops of orange oxide into the bowl all while its wet.Step 4
10. Then add the sugar and stir, stir, stir.
11. Once you’ve completely mixed your soap, oils, and sugar pour mixture into the mold and allow the little pumpkin bars (this recipe makes about 24) to set up for 4 hours. Ta-da!

Things got a little weird for me around step 11.   As I was mixing the mixture, it began to harden.  As you will see in the picture, I attempted to pack the mold versus pouring.  I decided to go ahead and re-heat it in the microwave for another 30 seconds.  When I took it out, it was a thick liquid that I stirred with the spatula (just to remix) and then began to poor into the mold.  It poured beautifully into each mold.  As excited as I was that this project seemed to turn out just right , I immediately decided it was time to put them to the true test.  I used a couple of these and they worked really well!  The bar held its shape despite the fact that anytime you add water to sugar, it breaks it down.  I hope you have as much fun as I did using this recipe.

fragrance oils1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:  My Name is Teri Lang Patterson and my company is Body Systems Skincare Co.

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I began making natural bath products for my family in 2000 when my allergies were so bad that I just couldn’t find great products “on the shelf.” In 2002 I was let go from my main job at an Advertising Agency and that’s when I decided to turn my hobby into a business.

3. What products do you make and sell?  Over these 10+ years we’ve sold a variety of bath/body products but finally realized the importance of simplifying. My husband calls this my “Gordon Ramsey Kitchen Nightmares'” problem of trying to carry too many products and scents to try to satisfy too many customers, like failing restaurants on the popular tv program. When chef goes to a restaurant that’s failing and finds a menu book of 100+ entrees and freaks out. Over the last 2 years we’ve tested out various fragrances from Nature’s Garden and settled on 9 main fragrances to simplify our Retail Line. We offer Scrubs, Lotions, Wash, Bombs & Salts in our main line plus some balms and specialty products. Our wholesale line of bulk professional products for spas’ use, allows for customization which we also depend on Nature’s Gardens vast inventory

4. What are your business goals?  Balance. Yes this sounds odd. When I first started the company over 10 years ago it was all about acquiring accounts and completing sales. That’s all fine and good until you wear yourself out. Our first wholesale account was MGM Properties in Las Vegas and I was working over 18 hours per day the first few years. I’m also a Fitness Instructor and at that time was also teaching up to 11 classes per week…with no problem! Because I didn’t keep my business/health/family in balance I suffered physically and wore myself out. Now I have a new perspective on “Success”. We’ve taken the first step in simplifying our main line, revamping our most popular products and next we’ll be enhancing our wholesale program. Success now means happy customers with happy AND healthy company owner!

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  We use a variety of fragrance oils for our main retail line but also maintain staple fragrances for our bulk professional line. We have begun to focus on Custom Products & Private Labeling options and we couldn’t do this without the dependability of NG’s vast inventory of fabulous fragrances!
