Rose Petals Bath Melts Recipe

How have we used coco mango fragrance oil?  Well, we used it in these adorable bath melts.  With the addition of both mango butter and cocoa butter, these bath melts will pamper your skin.  So, when you’re ready to make the Rose Petal Bath Melts, click the link, or picture for the recipe.

 

Coco Mango Fragrance Oil performs pretty well in cold process soap.  It showed no ricing and also no acceleration.  While we did notice slight separation after pouring the batter, the oils did reabsorb.  In addition, it discolors to a milk chocolate. Strong scent retention.  See exactly how it performs by clicking here.

 

When creating homemade candles with Natures Garden’s Coco Mango aroma, we suggest a yellow orange color.  You can achieve this color by using 2 drops of orange along with 2 drops yellow liquid candle dye. However, we should add, this suggestion is based on a 4 pound batch of wax.

 

Grapefruit Mango Fragrance Oil Grapefruit Mango Fragrance Oil

When our perfumist presented Natures Garden with this fragrance oil, we were in awe!  Refreshing, exotic, with just the right amount of Japanese grapefruit.  Grapefruit mango fragrance begins with top notes of Japanese grapefruit, ruby red grapefruit, and mango; followed by middle notes of cucumber and honeydew melon; and sits on a dry down of vanilla. An NG Original Fragrance!

 

Do you make your own candles?  Natures Garden suggests coloring you candles with either liquid candle dye or color blocks.  You can use 4 drops orange plus 2 drops red liquid candle dye.  Alternatively, a small amount of shredded red and orange color blocks can be used.

Now, while this one can be used in a variety of bath and body products, we have found that it does not perform well in cold process soap recipes.  You are welcome to test Grapefruit Mango Fragrance Oil in hot process soap, however we have not tested it in this application.

When you’re coloring your homemade candles using this mango fragrance oil, we suggest a lime color.  You can use 2 drops of yellow with the addition of 2 drops green liquid candle dye to get this color.  Another option is color blocks.  So, you can shred a small amount of green and yellow color blocks into your melted wax for the same color results.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Clean and Sanitize

As always, you should make sure that you are fully prepared to create these amazing and lip softening lip balms. You will want to make sure that you have both clean equipment and enough working space to make the product inside your kit. First, clean all of the equipment you will need that is listed above and make sure that it is nearby. Keeping this equipment readily available will make this process go smoother and quicker. Second, make sure that you have your stove and counter top clean and ready to use. This will not only speed up the process, but help to reduce possible contamination. While this step seems simple, it is crucial for your product that everything is sanitized and ready to use.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Making a Double Boiler

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Making a Double BoilerBefore you begin, we need to make sure that you are comfortable with using a double boiler for melting. This method of melting various things, such as oils or chocolate, is done to reduce the chance of scorching the ingredients. Instead of specifically purchasing a double boiler, you can create something that performs similarly with two differently sized pots.

First, take the larger pot and fill it with water. This pot will sit directly on the stove to allow the water to boil. Next, the smaller pot will be set in the water of the larger pot. The ingredients that you want to melt will be placed into the smaller pot. Once you are ready to melt your ingredients, turn up the stove to boil the water. This will melt your ingredients at a safer temperature, but be sure that you stir periodically and make sure that you water doesn’t boil over. Now, you are ready to get started.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing Ingredients

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing IngredientsFirst, you will weigh two of your ingredients that will take a bit longer to melt. Retrieve the beeswax, mango butter, a bowl, and your scale. Now, tare the weight of the bowl from the scale. Individually weigh your 29 grams of the white beeswax and 17 grams of the mango butter into the bowl. Set this bowl aside for a moment, but not to far as you will use this mixture in the following step.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Melting Ingredients

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Melting IngredientsNext, you will melt your weighed ingredients in your newly created double boiler. After you have the double boiler assembled turn on the stove to begin boiling the water of the large pot. Next, retrieve the bowl of white beeswax and mango butter. Empty this mixture into the small pot. Additionally, add approximately 4 to 6 discs of the chocolate wafers. The amount you add is a personal preference in flavoring, so add any amount you choose. Since these three ingredients will take longest to melt, these will be allowed to stay on the stove while the next few steps are done.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing the Remaining Oils

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing the Remaining OilsNow, you are going to weigh out the remaining oils. Take another bowl, a scale, coconut oil 76, the avocado oil, and the vitamin E oil. Tare the weight of the bowl from the scale and weigh your ingredients. You will be weighing out 35 grams of coconut oil 76, 35 grams of avocado oil, and 1 gram of vitamin E oil.

Additionally, it is possible that your bottles of coconut oil 76 may be arrive in solid form, as its melting point is around room temperature. If this happens to occur, then you will need to melt the coconut oil 76 before weighing. You can either place the closed bottles into hot water or place the uncapped coconut oil 76 in the microwave with thirty second intervals to melt. Once everything is weighed into your bowl, temporarily set aside.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Combining Ingredients into the Double Boiler

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Combining Ingredients into the Double BoilerNext, you will be adding the mixture in the bowl to the double boiler. Hopefully, the mixture already in your double boiler has melted a bit. Now, you can add the coconut oil 76, avocado oil, and vitamin E oil mixture to your double boiler.  You will want to be observant and make sure that the ingredients in your double boiler don’t get too hot. If you feel that your ingredients are getting too hot, turn down the heat or lift the small pot for a moment or so. Finally, when the mixture has completely melted you can remove the small pot from the water.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Filling the Lip Balm Tubes

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Filling the Lip Balm TubesLastly, you will transfer the mixture from the pot to the lip balm tubes. Take your transfer pipettes to move your mixture from the pot into the lip balm tubes. You will want to work fast because the mixture will begin to set up as it cools. If the mixture hardens in the pot, then you can reheat the mixture carefully. Additionally, the hardened mixture in the pipettes can be squeezed out into the pot for melting. You should have plenty of pipettes available, but cleaning out the pipettes that you can will help prevent you from running out too soon. Once you have filled all of your lip balm tubes you will need to leave them to set up. They shouldn’t take too long to cool, but make sure not to use or cap your finished products until they are at room temperature.

Green Clay Mask Recipe

Green Clay Mask Recipe

Green Clay Mask RecipeThis green clay mask recipe incorporates the benefits of French Green Clay Powder and Peppermint Leaf extract to create an amazing facial! First, French Green Clay has been known to be perfect for those that have some problems with oily skin or anyone with acne issues. So, this refreshing facial mask utilizes this clay’s ability to pull toxins from the skin to make an amazing facial. Also, peppermint has been known to tighten pores and brighten the complexion. Furthermore, the vegetable glycerin that is included has properties that draw moisture into your skin, leaving it baby soft. Overall, this means that every part of this recipe has a positive impact on your face. Plus, this beneficial facial recipe is quick and easy to create. Not only does this recipe only have a few steps, but all the ingredients and the tea bags are already included in the kit. This easy, homemade takes minutes to create and is absolutely worth the effort. This amazing green clay and peppermint leaf recipe will leave your face feeling clean, silky soft, and glowing!

Green Clay Mask Recipe Things Needed from Natures Garden

Refreshing Facial Mask Kit

Green Clay Mask Recipe Ingredients Included in the Kit

French Green Clay Powder

Vegetable Glycerin

Peppermint Leaves (cut & sifted)

Peppermint Leaf Powder

Fillable draw string tea bags– (for making your peppermint infusions)

12 oz. jar with lid

Green Clay Mask Recipe Other Equipment Needed

Pot for boiling water

Stove top

Scale

Small bowls (four)

Spoons

Green Clay Mask Recipe Clean, Sanitize, and Organize

Before beginning to create your refreshing facial mask, make sure you are properly prepared for the process. First, your equipment should be cleaned and ready to use. Make sure that your bowls, pot, and spoons are clean and out on the counter. Also, make sure your counter top and stove have enough room for you to work. While this step may seem to be too simple to need mentioning, it is a very important step in this process and can make the experience infinitely more enjoyable. So, just take a few moments to clean and organize your work-space and equipment.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Things to Remember

Before starting you should know that this recipe will make enough for a single facial. If you are making this recipe for yourself, then following the recipe exactly will be perfect. However, if you are creating facials for something like a girl’s night, then you may want to plan ahead a bit. Depending on how many people you have you could maybe have each person create their own, and just share the steeped peppermint tea. On the other hand, you could try doubling the batch as you go. Either way, make sure that you are aware of how much that you are going to need.

Another thing to keep in mind is the shelf life of this recipe. We recommend that you use this recipe as soon as you create it, but you can store your facial for later use. If you want to create your facials in advance, then make sure to avoid storing for more than one week. Also, you must store this recipe in the refrigerator to prevent spoiling. As there is no preservative added, it is not a good idea to store for longer or leave out for too long. For storing you could use the 12-ounce jar that is included in the kit.  Alternatively, if you would like to extend the life of your facial mask, you can choose to add Optiphen preservative.  If you decide to go this route, we recommend a 1% usage rate.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Begin Boiling the Water

Green Clay Mask Recipe Begin Boiling the WaterBefore starting you may want to set a pot of water on the stove to boil. While you could do this in a later step, it may quicken the process a bit if you start boiling your water before you begin with the steps for this recipe. Waiting for the water to boil will lengthen the time you spend on the tea steeping step, so starting it before you begin could be a real-time saver. Now, let’s get started!

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weigh the Powders and Herb

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weigh the Powders and HerbFirst, we are going to combine the French Green Clay Powder and the Peppermint Leaf Powder into a small bowl. Take your scale, place the bowl on top, and tare out the weight of the bowl on the scale. Now, weigh 24 grams of the French Green Clay Powder and 2 grams of the Peppermint Leaf Powder into the same small bowl. Mix these two powders together and set the bowl aside for later.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weigh the Powders and Herb

Second, you will want to weigh the Peppermint Leaf cut and sifted herb for later use. Take a new bowl and tare out your scale. Now, weight 2 grams of this herb into the bowl. We will be using this weighed herb in the following step.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Steeping the Peppermint Leaf

Green Clay Mask Recipe Steeping the Peppermint LeafNow, it’s time for you to create the peppermint leaf tea. Take the 2 grams of Peppermint Leaf cut and sifted that you have already weighed. Now, scoop all of this herb into one of the provided tea bags. Once your water is boiling you are going to place your tea bag in the boiling hot water. While you can put the tea bag directly into the pot, I transferred some of the water to another small bowl and allowed my tea bag to steep there. I did this to prevent the tea from being too diluted and to make it easier to transfer later. Once your teabag has steeped for long enough, you can move on to the next step.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weighing the Liquid Ingredients

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weighing the Liquid IngredientsNext, you are going to combine the freshly steeped peppermint tea and the vegetable glycerin into a single, small bowl. Take your scale and tare the weight of a small bowl. Now, weigh 18 grams of the peppermint tea and 6 grams of the vegetable glycerin into the same, small bowl. Mix these together well, so you can pour this mixture in a later step.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Combining Powder and Liquid Ingredients

Green Clay Mask Recipe Combining Powder and Liquid IngredientsFinally, you are going to mix the powder mixture from the very first step with the liquid ingredients from the previous step. Take the bowl of French Green Clay Powder and Peppermint Leaf Powder and pour the bowl of Peppermint Tea and Vegetable Glycerin on top of the powders. Now, mix this mixture together well. Your facial is finally ready to use!

Green Clay Mask Recipe Results

After trying out the Natures Garden Refreshing Facial Mask myself, I’ve fallen in love with this recipe! Not only does the mask smell of delicious peppermint, but made my face feel amazing. Before trying this recipe, I was a little skeptical about whether this would work for me. While I have some problem areas, such as my nose, that are overly oily, my cheeks have been dry from a combination of my face cleanser and the cold, windy weather. However, I was extremely impressed with this recipe! It worked wonderfully on my nose but still left my cheeks feeling smooth and soft. The thing that made this refreshing facial mask kit even more amazing was that I have enough left to create nine more masks! I may even try to get one of my friends to retry this recipe with me. Even though many of my friends aren’t super crafty, this recipe is one that is super easy and delightful to use when it’s finished!

While activated charcoal is not exactly the same as soap, adding this cleansing powder to a scrub can make it more than just your average scrub. So, creating this recipe, Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe, is the best of both worlds! Not only do you get the exfoliating and nourishing power of an average scrub recipe, but there is the added benefit you get from adding activated charcoal.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe

Activated Charcoal Scrub RecipeAnd so my obsession with activated charcoal continues.  Our next activated charcoal bath and body recipe is an activated charcoal scrub recipe.  This homemade scrub recipe includes Natures Garden’s activated charcoal powder, shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil just to name a few ingredients.  Let me tell you this emulsified sugar scrub recipe is fantastic.  It left my skin feeling soft and silky!  I will be making this one again for sure.

Now, if you haven’t made your own emulsified scrub before, no worries, I will walk you through each step!  You might be asking yourself, what is an emulsified scrub?  How is it different from a regular sugar scrub?  Well, an emulsified sugar scrub contains, in this case, Natures Garden’s traditional emulsifying wax.  This ingredient will emulsify, or mix, the oils with the sugar without any separation.  Have you ever made a scrub only to later have the oil separate out and sit at the top of the jar?  This is likely to happen without an emulsifier in the mix.  This tutorial will show you exactly how to avoid that problem.  In addition, it has activated charcoal included.  Activated charcoal is known to be a fabulous detoxifying agent.  It is currently my favorite ingredient to add when creating handmade soap and cosmetic recipes.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Before You Begin

Before you begin, you will want to prepare your supplies and equipment.  Clean and sanitize your work area, all of your packaging material, and utensils you will be using.  Additionally, you will want to wear an apron, a hairnet, and gloves when preparing this activated charcoal recipe.  Also, go ahead and melt your coconut oil 76.  Coconut oil will be in a solid state at temperatures above 76 degrees but will be liquid below that temperature.  So, it will be pretty easy to melt it.  Place your bottle of coconut oil in a bowl of warm tap water.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

 

First, you will need your scale.  Then, with you scale set to grams, weigh out 128 grams of your macadamia nut oil, 83 grams of shea butter, 70 grams mango butter, 63 grams emulsifying wax traditional, 23 grams jojoba oil, and 14 grams of white beeswax pastilles.  Then, use a double boiler to melt the oils, butters, and waxes.  While you are waiting for them to melt move to the next step.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Prepare the Other Ingredients

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Prepare the Other Ingredients

 

You will once again need your scale and a large mixing bowl.  Also, you will need the sugar.  Next, weigh out 765 grams of white granulated sugar.  Go ahead and set this aside for the moment.  You will need it in a future step.

 

 

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Prepare the Other Ingredients

 

Now, we will prepare the activated charcoal.  Before we add the activated charcoal to the scrub, we are going to add vegetable glycerin.  This will help your charcoal powder disperse evenly throughout the scrub without clumping.  So, use your scale to weigh out 6 grams of activated charcoal.  Then, add 16 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix the ingredients until you have a smooth paste like consistency.  Also, set this off to the side, we will come back to it.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

Next, once the oils have melted, remove them from the heat.  Then, let the temperature drop a bit.  You want the temperature of the oils to come down to between 120 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, add 6 grams of your Optiphen Preservative.  Mix well to incorporate the Optiphen.  I should note, the temperature is extremely important for this step.  If it is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. If it is below 120 degrees, the preservative will separate from the scrub.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

 

Then, add 17 grams of arrowroot powder.  Mix the arrowroot powder into the oils thoroughly.  Next, add 6 grams Vitamin E Oil, 20 grams of Black Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil.  Again, stir to incorporate all of the ingredients.

 

 

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

 

Now, we will put everything together.  You will need the bowl containing the sugar.  Slowly pour the oils into the bowl of sugar.  Use a spatula to mix the sugar and oils.

 

 

 

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Putting it All Together

 

Once they are mixed together, add the activated charcoal you prepared earlier.  Then, stir the activated charcoal into the mixture.  Finally, allow the scrub to come to room temperature before moving on to the next step.  The activated charcoal scrub will thicken as it cools.

Lastly, we will be adding the scrub to the jars.  You will need four of your 8 ounce black double wall jars.  In addition, you will need four black dome lids 89/400.  Use a spatula or spoon to scoop the scrub into the 8 ounce jars.  Then, place a black dome lid on top of each jar.

 

 

Finally, when using your scrub, scoop a small amount of the activated charcoal scrub out of the jar.  Then, apply it to your face and use your fingers to scrub away.  Then, simply rinse the scrub off with warm water and a washcloth.  We hope that you enjoy Natures Garden’s activated charcoal scrub recipe.  For even more cosmetic, soap, and candle recipes, check out our recipe box.  Also, let us know what you have been up to!  Post pics of your handmade projects on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Clean and Prepare

Before you begin preparing the Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit, you will want to get prepared to make sure that the process goes as smoothly as possible. First, make sure that your equipment and work space are sanitized and ready for you to get to work. This will help you stay organized and prevent your product from contamination. Second, you may want to read over all the steps of the kit. This will help you be aware of the critical temperatures and timing of certain steps. Otherwise, you get your lotion recipe to emulsify correctly or you could burn off the Optiphen preservative. Finally, once you feel that you’re well prepared to create your delicious frappe mocha scented body cream you can get started!

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit the Creative Decision

While you are given detailed directions and all the necessary ingredients to create this body cream, you have an opportunity to create one of two slightly different products. You can either create this recipe in one solid mocha colored layer or create a two-layer product. This other layer is meant to look like a whipped topping on top of a rich mocha base layer. The second layer would use a portion of the oils that you have been provided within the kit and divide it to create a white topping layer. Either way you choose, the steps will be given for each in the steps below. Once you have decided, we will begin creating our Frappe Mocha Body Cream.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Boiling Water

Initially, you’ll want to boil about 500 grams of distilled water for twenty minutes. Also, you want to make sure the water reaches at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit for twenty minutes. This step is meant to kill bacteria, which will help to prevent contamination issues in your final product. While we will not use 500 grams of water, some of it will boil off. So, we want to make sure we have plenty of water to allow for this.

For those creating a layered cream: If you are creating a layered cream, you may want to add more water to the pot as evaporation will occur.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Making Coffee

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Making CoffeeSecond, we are going to prepare the coffee filter to create the coffee water for your mocha colored base. Take your strainer, set the coffee filter inside, and add about a half cup of coffee grounds to the filter. Next, we will be pouring the boiled water through the coffee and filtering mechanism. This will be done by placing a medium bowl on your scale. You will then hold the strainer over the bowl and pour the water into the coffee filter. It will then filter the coffee water into your bowl. However, the amount that you will need depends on whether you are making one or two layers. If you chose to create a single mocha colored layer, then filter 353 grams of the boiled water through the coffee. Set the coffee water aside, for now, we will come back to it.

For those creating a layered cream: If you are going to have a whipped topping appearance on your products, you will only need to filter 264 grams of boiled water through the coffee. Take the remaining water and place it back on the heat. Set the coffee water aside, we will come back to it.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Double Boiler

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Double BoilerThis next step requires the use of a double boiler. However, the same effect can be done with one larger pot and one smaller pot. Take the larger pot and add a couple of inches or so of water. Put the smaller pot inside of the larger pot. When adding your oils and butters you will want to add them to the smaller pot. The water in the larger pot will warm up the ingredients, and it will help you to prevent the scorching of your butters and oils.

 

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Oil Phase

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Oil PhaseNow, we are going to heat the oils, butters, and emulsifying wax. Weigh out 48 grams of sweet almond oil, 24 grams of traditional emulsifying wax, 10 grams of cocoa butter, 8 grams of stearic acid, and 5 grams of vitamin E oil. Then, melt them using your double boiler. Once this mixture is melted, you will remove it from the heat and cool it to about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Emulsification

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit EmulsificationNext, you will combine your oil and water for the emulsification phase of the recipe. As the coffee water and oil mixture both approach 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you should get the stick blender, scale, and a large bowl ready. Once both the mixtures are around this temperature you will combine the oil and coffee water, mixing with your stick blender. The amount of oil that you will add depends on the number of layers you intend to create. If you are making a single layer, then simply add all of the oil to the water.

For those creating a layered cream: Now, you will need to separate the amount of the oil mixture if you are going to create a layered cream.You will measure out about 71 grams of the oil mixture into the large bowl. Next, mix the water and oil very well with the stick blender.  The remaining oil will then be used for the whipped portion.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Cool Down

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Cool DownFinally, let the emulsified mixture cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your mixture is at this temperature, you can add the preservative and fragrance oils. If you are making a single layer, add 7 grams of Optiphen, 5 grams of the World’s Best Coffee Fragrance Oil, and 1 gram of the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil.

 

For those creating a layered cream: If this is the base of your dual layered product, then you will add 5 grams of Optiphen, 4 grams of the World’s Best Coffee Fragrance Oil, and a bit less than a gram of the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Whipped Cream Layer (Optional)

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Whipped Cream Layer (Optional)If you have set some of your provided ingredients aside for two layers, then you can prepare your white topping layer. First, make sure that your clear, boiled water and your leftover oil mixture are at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, combine 89 grams of the clear water and the remaining oil. Then, stick blend well to emulsify. Next, let the emulsified blend cool to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit before you add the final ingredients. Now, add about 2 grams of Optiphen, 1 gram of the World’s Best Coffee Fragrance Oil, and the rest of the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil. Finally, blend this well and set the mixture aside until you mocha colored layer has set up.

 

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Filling the Jars

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Filling the Jars

 

Now, retrieve the light mocha colored bowl of your emulsified lotion. Next, once the mocha base has cooled to room temperature, you can scoop the lotion into the jars.  If you are only making one layer, then you can feel free to scoop the base to the top of your jars. Also, sprinkle some of your leftover coffee grounds on top.  Finally, place a lid on top!

 

 

Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit Filling the Jars with Topping

 

For those creating a layered cream: Be sure to leave some room, about

half an inch, for the top layer. First, wait for the white topping layer to cool down to room temperature. Then, once this layer is at the right temperature, scoop this layer into the top of the jars. Also, you can sprinkle some of your leftover coffee grounds onto the top of your lotion product. Finally, place a lid on top of your jar!

We hope that you enjoy Natures Garden’s Frappe Mocha Body Cream Kit as much as we have.  Personally, I love this cream recipe! It doesn’t leave oily residue on your hands, but has a wonderful softening effect on the skin. Between the intoxicating scent and the moisturizing power, this recipe has easily become my absolute favorite lotion! So, I need to let all my fellow coffee lovers out there know that this is a recipe that you do not want to pass up! Also, for more kits available from Natures Garden, click here.

Valentines Day Kisses Melt And Pour Recipe Final Product

Three kissing lips soaps will be produced for each color that is created. These steps will walk you through the hues that we chose to create. If you wish to get creative, then feel free to mix and match your lip colors to customize your own set of kisses!

Valentines Day Kisses Melt And Pour Recipe Creating Mica Pigments 

Initially, we are going to prepare the soap pigments that we will need later on. Rather than using any of our soap dyes, we are going to use mica to color our melt and pour soap. Not only will this allow us to achieve gold and silver pigments, but the soap will sparkle as well! So, let’s prepare our diamond dust and 24K gold mica pigments and then get to soaping.

Next, we are going to use the 24K gold mica to create a color for our melt and pour soap. So, weigh out approximately 4 grams of vegetable glycerin and 2 grams of 24K gold mica into one of the smaller bowls. Now, mix these ingredients thoroughly to integrate all of the mica powder and spread out any clumped mica. Once you have a nice liquid gold paste prepared, set the bowl aside.

Now, we are going to use the diamond dust mica to create a different pigment for our melt and pour soap. First, weigh 5 grams of vegetable glycerin into another small bowl.

Mango Tangerine Foaming Bath Whip RecipeFirst, you will need your scale and one of the deep mixing bowls.  You will be weighing the ingredients in grams.  Make sure your scale is set to weigh in grams.  Place the bowl on the scale.  Then, tare the scale out.  Add 454 grams of Natures Garden’s whipped soap base to the mixing bowl.  Set this mixing bowl aside, we will come back to it.

Mango Tangerine Foaming Bath Whip Recipe Prepare the Powdered Sugar

Next, we will prepare the powdered sugar.  You will need your second mixing bowl.  First, weigh out 250 grams of powdered sugar.  For the moment set this aside.  We found it easiest to weight both of these at once so it is ready when we need it.  We will come back to it in just a few minutes.

Mango Tangerine Foaming Bath Whip Recipe Whip the Base

Mango Tangerine Foaming Bath Whip RecipeNow, back to the first bowl.  Get out your hand mixer.  To the bowl containing the whipped soap base, add 15 drops of the red soap colorant and 15 drops yellow soap dye.  Also, add 35 grams of Natures Garden’s Mango Tangerine Fragrance Oil.  Use your mixer to mix the ingredients together.  Be extra careful, you want to make sure everything is thoroughly mixed.  Use the mixer to continue to whip the soap base.  Keep on whipping until you have reached a whipped frosting consistency.

Mango Tangerine Foaming Bath Whip Recipe Packaging Your Whipped Body Frosting

Finally, let’s package the whipped frosting.  You will need the seven jars you prepared earlier.  Also, go ahead and get the lids.  Use your spoon to scoop the body frosting into the jars.  Once you have filled the seven jars, place a lid on each jar.

Once you have finished your frosting, you can use it right away.  Simply scoop a bit out of the jar.  Then, use it just like you would a body wash.  Once you have made your bath whip, be sure to show us how yours turned out.  Post a picture of your finished product on our Facebook Page.  Or, you could tag us on Instagram @ngscents.  We hope that your enjoy your Mango Tangerine Foaming Bath Whip as much as we do!

NG Cashmere & Silk Type Fragrance Oil CP Soap DiscolorationNot only is this scent good for melt and pour soaps, it will work very well in cold process soap recipes. Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have proved to us that this fragrance oil is fantastic for this method of creating soap. First of all, this scent will work perfectly for a batch that will be used to create swirled soaps. A batch that uses this scent will have no ricing, no separation, and no acceleration. While this scent has quite a few floral notes and floral scents typically accelerate, we have observed no acceleration with this fragrance oil!  The final soap will maintain a nice and sweet strong floral scent and the bars will discolor to a dark chocolate hue. Due to the 2.7% concentration of vanillin, it is possible to reduce some of the discoloration by adding vanilla white stabilizer.
