14 Ways To Use Arrowroot Powder14 Ways To Use Arrowroot Powder

Arrowroot Powder is one of the most versatile products in the market today. It can be used in anything from cooking to all types of bath products, such as, soap, bath bombs, cosmetics,deodorants, lotions and even in cleaning products.  The list of possibilities are endless. Below, we have 14 ways to use arrowroot powder. We hope you are able to be inspired to create some fun, and even some natural products to add to you line of products or even for just your personal use. Before we get started though, let’s talk a little about where Arrowroot Powder comes from and what exactly Arrowroot is.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: How It's Made14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: How It’s Made

Maranta arundinacea, or more commonly known as arrowroot, dates back to more than 7,000 years ago,  when this powder was first discovered as being used in food by the Caribbean Arawak people. This plant is native to tropical areas such as, western Brazil and Guyana. However, this multi functional root is cultivated in such countries such as, Australia, South Africa and the West Indies.

The powder itself comes from the rhizomes, or the roots, of the plant. The roots are first washed, and then cleaned of the paper-like scales. The scales must be carefully removed before extracting the starch because they impart a disagreeable flavor. Once the scales are completely removed, the roots are washed again, drained and reduced to a pulp by beating them in mortars or grinding them with a wheel rasp. The milky liquid that is obtained is then passed through a coarse cloth. The pure starch, which is insoluble, is allowed to settle at the bottom. The wet starch is then dried in the sun or in a drying house. The result is a starchy powder, ready to be packed in airtight containers and shipped.

Arrowroot Powder can be used in everything from cooking, cosmetics to even medicinal uses. Arrowroot is starchy and makes a wonderful natural, thickening alternative to flour or cornstarch. This powder is fat free, gluten free, and low in salt. You can treat sunburns, blemishes and rashes with arrowroot. When used in cosmetics, bath and body products, it works as a thickening agent. It is also good at absorbing moisture and aids in keeping your skin dry.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe

Our first recipe using arrowroot is our Pink Lemonade Scrub. Scrubs are incredibly popular nowadays.  Salt or sugar, pumice or black walnut hulls, scrubs are an easy way to help slough away dead skin cells without being harsh on your skin. This recipe is not only fresh and colorful, it’s full of skin softening ingredients. Sugar is the main ingredient and we all generally have sugar in our house. Cocoa butter, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E and Arrowroot Powder are just a few. The scent inspiration for this scrub was our Raspberry Lemonade fragrance oil that smells true to its name. Tart lemons, raspberries and sugar.

Another skin care product that is all the rage these days is charcoal. Charcoal is awesomely natural at detoxifying and exfoliating the skin. There are so many products out in the market using charcoal in masks, nose strips and scrubs, but it’s easy to make your own! Our Activated Charcoal Scrub is a definite in the natural department. The skin loving ingredients include, shea and mango butter, macadamia nut oil, coconut oil, activated charcoal and of course, arrowroot powder to help bind it all together. We chose our Black Linen & Amber fragrance oil. This scent is a unisex blend of crisp cotton, white blossoms with undertones of musk, amber and patchouli. A very deep, sexy fragrance.

Foaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Clean and Sanitize

Before you begin, make sure that all your equipment and your work space is sanitized. This will prevent possible contamination from using dirty utensils or setting those utensils on a dirty counter top. Also, having your work space tidy will help you create this recipe.  Not only will all your equipment be close and ready to use, but there won’t be anything impeding your ability to work. Now, lets get started!

Foaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Making the Double Boiler

Also, you will want to know how to create the double boiler before we begin. If you already know how to create this melting device, then feel free to begin the recipe. However, those that aren’t sure how to put this together can read through this short step-by-step instruction on how to create a double boiler. We stress this importance because the double boiler is crucial to preventing your butters and oils from scorching.

First, get your small pot and your medium pot. The larger pot will contain the boiling water and the smaller pot will contain the ingredients that you intend to have melting. So, add about an inch of water to the medium pot to start. Then, place your smaller pot inside the medium pot. You will need to adjust the water level so that it is at least touching the bottom of the small pot, but not high enough to boil over into your melting ingredients. Finally, you can turn on the stove top and add your ingredients to the small pot.

Foaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Melting Your Butters and WaxFoaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Melting Your Butters and Wax

First, you will need to melt the necessary ingredients for your scrub. Retrieve the scale and tare the weight of a bowl. Now, weigh out 136 grams of coconut oil 76, 113 grams of sweet almond oil, 62 grams of cocoa butter, 74 grams of shea butter, 50 grams of silky emulsifying wax, 20 grams of olive oil, and 12 grams of beeswax. After, you will be ready to melt your weighed ingredients. So, pour these ingredients into the small pot of your double boiler and set the stove to medium heat. Stir as the butters and wax melts and continue until everything has completely melted.

Foaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Creating Hibiscus Flower PasteFoaming Hibiscus Sugar Scrub Creating Hibiscus Flower Paste

While you wait for your ingredients to melt, you can begin creating the Hibiscus Flower Powder paste. So, weigh out 8 grams of Hibiscus Flower Powder and 20 grams of Vegetable Glycerin into a second bowl. You will need to mix these ingredients together very well until everything has been combined to create a paste consistency. Then, set this bowl aside for later use.

Now, we will be adding a few more ingredients to the larger mixture, which is made of butters, oils, and wax. So, wait for the butters and wax to finish melting. After all the ingredients are melted, transfer these ingredients to a bowl. Now, allow your mixture to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature is important as it prevents the preservative or other ingredients from burning off. Then, it is time for you to add 5 grams of optiphen preservative,5 grams of vitamin E oil, 121 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, and 20 grams of Hawaiian Sea Mist Fragrance Oil to your melted mixture. Be sure to mix thoroughly and incorporate all the added ingredients.

Next, you will add the sugar to the larger mixture of melted ingredients. So, weight out 680 grams of the white granulated sugar in a separate bowl. Then, slowly add the sugar to your mixture while you are whisking. This well incorporate all of the oils into the added sugar to create a well combined sugar scrub mixture.

Then, you can add the Hibiscus Flower Powder paste to the larger mixture. So, retrieve the paste that you have set aside in a previous step. Now, add the Hibiscus flower powder paste to your larger mixture. Again, make sure that you mix thoroughly to disperse the Hibiscus Flower Powder completely. However, incorporating this ingredient may be a bit more difficult as it is a thicker paste. While it may take more work, just keep mixing until the paste is dispersed evenly through the entire bowl.

Finally, you are ready for the finishing touches for your foaming sugar scrub! First, allow your mixture to fully cool to room temperature. After, your will be able to pour your scrub into your nine 4 oz jars. We recommend using a spoon or spatula to scoop the mixture into your jars, but you can transfer the scrub anyway your want to do this.

Once all the sugar scrub mixture is put into the jars you can add the whole hibiscus flowers to the tops. Simply sprinkle a tiny bit on the top of each jar. Then, you can place the lids on the jars to either store or use the scrub. If you wish to use your foaming scrub, just scrub your hands under some warm, running water. Also, you can use this scrub in the shower as well. It will foam, soften you skin, and feel amazing. So, we are pretty sure that you are going to really enjoy this recipe!

Before you begin making our Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe you will want to clean and sanitize your work area. We also recommend wearing protective clothing such as gloves, a hair net, and one of Natures Garden’s adorable aprons. Not only will they protect your clothing, but you’ll look fabulous while making your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting OilsPumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Double Boiler

One more thing before we start, you should know, placing your oils and butter on direct heat can burn your oils. For a double boiler, you will need two pots. Fill one of your pots with water. Place this pot on the stove using low heat. Then, add your weighed out butters and oils to the second pot. Place the second pot in the first pot containing the water.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Weighing-OilsYou will begin by weighing out the following, 136 grams Coconut 76 oil, 93 grams Sunflower Oil, 74 grams Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 62 grams Shea Butter, 50 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax, 20 grams Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 20 grams Pumpkin Seed Oil,12 grams White Beeswax. Now, you should place these ingredients in your double boiler. Allow them to melt.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Colorants

While you are waiting for your oils to melt, you can go ahead and prepare your colorants. You will need three small mixing bowls. While we will also be using Natures Garden’s Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, this will not be needed until later in the recipe. For now, we will just be preparing the powders that are needed for coloring. Once you have prepared them, you can set them aside, we will come back to them.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Orange LayerBowl One: The Orange Layer

To your first mixing bowl, weigh out and add grams of orange peel powder. Then, to the powder, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. Now use one of your mixing spoons to stir the ingredients. You are looking for a paste like consistency. Just make sure you have removed any lumps in the powder. Creating a paste allows the powder to disperse better, or more evenly in your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Brown LayerBowl Two: The Brown Layer

In the second mixing bowl, weigh out and add 4 grams of your pumpkin pie spice blend. Again, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. You want to mix them again with a clean spoon to create a paste.

Bowl Three: The White Layer

To bowl three, we will just be weighing out the titanium dioxide. You simply need to weigh out two grams of titanium dioxide oil dispersible. Since we will be adding this to our oils, you do not need to create a paste with this one.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Other Ingredients

Next, once your oils have melted, remove them from the heat. You will need to watch the temperature closely. This step is extremely temperature sensitive. The reason for this is, the optiphen. Optiphen is a preservative used to prevent bacteria in the scrub. While typically optiphen is only added to products that contain water, we chose to add it because scrubs tend to come in contact with a lot of water. It needs to be added at 120 degrees. If it is added at a higher temperature, above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. However, adding it below 120 degrees Fahrenheit will cause separation.

Once your oils reach the magic number of 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the following ingredients, 18 grams Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil, 5 grams optiphen preservative, 5 grams vitamin E oil, and 15 grams arrowroot powder. Mix well to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding SugarNext, add your white granulated sugar. Mix thoroughly, incorporating the sugar completely into the oils. Then, divide the mixture into three equal parts. This will mean you will be adding approximately 394 grams of the mixture to two empty bowls, leaving the remaining in your current mixing bowl.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Colorants

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Pumpkin-ColorantNow, let’s add some fun to the scrub! Colors! Remember those colorants we prepared earlier, this is when you will need them. Go ahead and get them. In your first bowl, add the titanium dioxide oil dispersible, this will be your white layer. Mix well to fully incorporate the powder. Now, to bowl two, add the pumpkin pie spice blend paste to your sugar mixture. Stir the paste into the sugar scrub until it is fully dispersed. Finally, to bowl the last powder add the orange peel powder blend, along with two drops of the neon orange Fun Soap Colorant. Again, mix well to incorporate the colorant evenly.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding the Scrub to Your Jars

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe LayeringFor the next portion of the pumpkin scrub recipe, you will need to allow the mixtures to come to room temperature. Also, be sure you do not see any oil sitting at the top of the product before moving to this step. Once you are ready, we will begin adding the sugar scrub to the jars. You will need seven four-ounce jars clear PET jars. Also, have seven 58/400 white dome lids ready.

We began layering our scrubs with the brown, pumpkin layer. However, you can begin with whatever color you choose. Another option would be to create more layers. While we only created three layers, you can make as many layers as you wish. So, here is how we created our layered scrub. You will begin by filling each of the seven jars 1/3 of the way full with the brown portion of the sugar scrub. Now, fill another 1/3 of the jar with the white portion of the scrub. Finally, top the jar off with the orange portion of the scrub. Once your jars are filled, whip away any residue on the jars. Then, place the white dome lids on top.

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this emulsified Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe with us. Let us know what you think! Also, we would love to see how you have created your body scrubs. Show us your pictures by tagging us on Instagram @ngscents.

There was no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation.  Cured soap had a good scent retention and discolored to a dark chocolate!  Because of this drastic discoloration, we do not recommend using a colorant for your soaps.  As a reminder, do not use candle dyes in your bath and body products.

Adding this fragrance to your scent collection can expand all of your scented product lines!  Handcrafted perfumes, body sprays, and lotions will all perform wonderfully when incorporating this fragrance at 5% of your total recipe.  Also, household cleaning supplies can be created using a maximum fragrance usage of 5%.
