Magic Potion Fragrance OilMagic Potion Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Magic Potion Fragrance Oil is a fruity scent by Natures Garden. This aroma is a fruit blend that creates a delicious and sweet concoction that is perfect for a variety of products. This fragrance oil is quite possibly one of the most unique grapefruit scents I have ever used. My niece and I made a gift basket for her best friend’s birthday. Of course we scented everything, her friend absolutely loved it. Personally, my favorite application for this one, the homemade bath fizzies.  We created layered bath bombs using Nature’s Garden ultramarine violet and neon orange FUN Soap Colorants. They were absolutely adorable! However, this citrus aroma also smells wonderful in the shea butter melt and pour soap base. We also added lotion from scratch and a body spray, using odor eliminator.

Tie Dye Soap

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, cold process soap, cold process soap colorant, cold process soap scents, colorants, creative, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

cup column swirl soapWatching all of the cool Youtube videos on making column swirl soap, we had to give it a try.  We thought that the column concept would make a great tie dye soap.  This soap recipe was our attempt at doing a column swirl soap.  Since we did not have wooden columns at our disposal, we thought we would improvise and try disposable cups.

To make this recipe, the majority of the ingredients and supplies can be found at Natures Garden.  You will however have to have water, lye, and your disposable cups- these items can not be purchased there.

For this soap, the scent that was selected was cannabis flower.  Now, since this scent has a vanillin content of .2%, we also included vanilla white color stabilizer in the recipe.  This decision was made after checking the cold process soap results for discoloration in this fragrance.  We saw that naturally without this additive the bar would discolor to a very light beige.  Considering we did not want our tie dye soap colors affected by this, it was a smart choice.  Also, since the mold that we are using is the 18 bar rectangle grid tray, we also decided to add sodium lactate to our recipe.  Not only will this allow the soap to be removed more easily from the mold, but it will also provide our finished bars with additional moisturizing aspects.

As for the colors in this soap, you can add as many or as few as you want.  Any of Natures Garden FUN Soap colorants will work!

So, lets get started in making tie dye soap.

Here is the recipe:
582 grams of water
215 grams of lye

413 grams of Shea Butter
306 grams of Coconut Oil 76
153 grams of Safflower Oil
107 grams of Rice Bran Oil
245 grams of Olive Oil pomace
184 grams of Meadowfoam Seed Oil
122 grams of Fractionated Coconut Oil
96 grams of Cannabis Flower Fragrance Oil
48 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
63 grams of Sodium Lactate

Now, if you would like to use the same colors shown in the steps, below are the weights.

Tie Dye Soap Colors:
6 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Neon Red
6 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Neon Yellow
6 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Neon Orange
6 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Neon Green
8 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Neon Blue
12 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet

Step 1:  Put on your safety gear:  This would include your safety gloves,  apron, safety mask, and safety glasses.

Step 2:  In your mold, space your 6 disposable cups equally apart from one another.

prepping your mold

Step 3:  In a small bowl, weigh out your lye.  In a separate bowl, weigh out your water.  In a well ventilated area, slowly pour the lye into the water.  Use a spatula to stir slowly.  Avoid breathing in any of the lye water fumes.  Keep stirring the lye water until there are no lye granules are left in the water.    Allow this to cool to 90-100 degrees F.

Step 4:  According to the recipe listed above: in a pot weigh out the Shea Butter and coconut oil 76.  Melt these two ingredients down on low heat until each one is in a liquid state.  Stir.  Then, add the safflower oil, rice bran oil, olive oil, meadowfoam seed oil, and fractionated coconut oil.  Stir again.  Remove from heat.  Then, transfer all of this into a large mixing bowl.

Step 5:  Next, get your 6 mixing bowls.  Assign each bowl a color.  Then, weigh out the appropriate color amount for each bowl.

Step 6:  Using your thermometer, check the temperature of the lye water.  When it has cooled to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, add your Sodium Lactate.  Stir carefully.  Now, once the temperatures of the lye water and the soaping oils and butters are within 5-10 degrees of one another, it is time to move on to the next step.

Step 7:   Now, slowly pour the lye water/sodium lactate into your oils and butters bowl.  Use a spatula to get all of this out and into the other bowl.

Step 8:  Using your stick blender, carefully mix everything together.  You will notice your batter will begin to look creamy and thicken slightly.  Now, stop blending.

Step 9:  Next, add the fragrance oil.

Step 10:  Then, add the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Once added, stick blend to incorporate.

Step 11:
  Now, place 405 grams of the soap batter into each bowl.  Stir each bowl with a spoon.  This will help slow down trace.

Step 12: 
Starting with any one of your colors, begin to pour about half of the batter over 3 cups.  Repeat with a second and third color.  Then, using a new color, pour about half of the batter over the 3 cups that do not have soap over them yet.  Repeat this with your two remaining colors.  Then, with the remaining batter, keep covering different cups.  While you are doing this step, if any cups move, use your spatula to put them back into place.  When all of the pourable batter is out of your bowls, use your spatula to scrape the soap from the cups.  Then remove them.

Step 13:  Now, using your spatula, scrape the colored bowls.  Then, splatter this soap over the mold.

Step 14:  When all the soap is in the mold, insulate it and allow it to harden for 24 hours.

Step 15:  After 24 hours, remove your soap from the mold.  Carefully, using a knife or a mitre cutter, slice the soap bars.  Once all of the soap is sliced, allow it to fully cure.

How to Properly Exfoliate

lip scrub

When you are exfoliating your body from head to toe, don’t forget about your lips! Using a lip scrub like Natures Gardens Natural Sugar Lip Scrub will do the trick at leaving your lips completely soft and kissable; to match the rest of your freshly exfoliated body.

 

How to Properly Exfoliate

In order to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant, exfoliation must be done; especially as we age.  The keys to remember here are to have an exfoliating tool like a loofah or wash cloth, your exfoliating scrubs (one for body, one for face) and moisturizer ready.

The best time to start the exfoliation process is before a shower or bath.  By rubbing down your body before getting it wet, you will be able to remove dead skin cells, therefore allowing the new skin cells to be cleaned and pores unclogged.

Never exfoliate if you have skin that is sunburned, areas with cuts, or open wounds.  Exfoliating these areas will be very painful for you.

If you are interested in making some great exfoliants for your skin, check out Natures Garden’s Scrub Recipes for some awesome do it yourself scrubs containing some great exfoliants.

Steps for Exfoliating Your Skin:

1. Using a loofah (for oily skin), wash cloth (for sensitive skin), exfoliating gloves (for normal skin), or bath pouf; wipe your body down from head to toe.  This should occur before you step into your shower or bath.  The goal of this step is to remove or loosen any dead skin cell in order to properly exfoliate your skin.  In order to properly exfoliate the soles of your feet, you may want to use a pumice stone since typically the skin here is much harder.  This is done in a circular motion, and be careful not to press to hardly.

2.  Next, step into the tub and wet your body.

3.  Then, apply your exfoliating body wash or scrub to your exfoliating medium (loofah, cloth, gloves, etc).  When you are ready to start washing your body, you will want to do this is a small circular motion.  Although it is not necessary, using a body brush is the easiest way to exfoliate those hard to reach places of your body.  If you are exfoliating your face too, make sure you use a facial exfoliant.  Body exfoliants and facial exfoliants vary in the amount of gentleness for your skin.

4.  When you are ready to rinse, use lukewarm water.  Once all of the cleanser/lather is rinsed off, you will want to do one more final rinse with the coldest temperature water that you can take.  Using the cold water will help to close your pores that were just exfoliated.

5.  Finally, step out of the tub and immediately apply your body lotion.  You still want your skin to be damp.  Since you just exfoliated, you will want to make sure it is a moisturizing lotion.  Since exfoliating your body can be drying process, you want to make sure you are allowing your skin to stay healthy and hydrated.

A great body lotion recipe which is very healthy for your skin is Natures Gardens Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion.  The herbs used in this recipe are rich in skin loving benefits.

One of the best facial cream recipes is Natures Gardens Natural Facial Night Cream.  This cream also has super nutrient herbs that are wonderfully healthy for your face.

Happy Exfoliating!

Fragrance & Fun for Everyone

Inspire, Create, and Dominate!

Beautiful Handmade Glycerin Soaps

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, creative, Fragrance Oils, handmade soap, Natures Garden, soap, soap fragrances and tagged , , , , , , , , , , on by .

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name: Teresa (Kathy) Rojas, Key West by Palms Soaps

I was raised in tropical Key West, Florida amongst many tropical fruits and beautiful colors and my soaps reflect these scents and colors.

Having always loved glycerin soaps and finding them getting horribly expensive I started creating them for myself.  I learned how to make handmade glycerin soap by researching online, joining groups and trial and error.  After my friends, family and co-workers kept asking me what I was wearing (it was my soap) or where did I get the beautiful soap in my bathroom and could I make some for them I started the process of correct labeling and packaging and started my business Key West by Palms Soaps.  Key West for where I was raised and Palms after our dog that we had recently lost to old age.

My soaps are created in small batches and with only the highest quality ingredients.  I produce something for everyone; men, women and children.  Key West by Palms Soaps also offers wedding/shower favors and wholesale orders.  Throughout each year we donate our product to many charitable contributions.

During the winter months you will find us all over South Florida at vendor events where customers can see and smell what we have to offer.

Our priorities are to provide beautiful, wonderfully smelling soaps that our clientele will be elated that they purchased from Key West by Palms Soaps.

Many of our bars are one of a kind in that once the loaf is sold we do not recreate the same thing over and over again.  Only a few of our bars are recreated and that is because of demand.  Custom requests are honored at no additional charge and are always welcomed.

We only purchase our fragrance oils from Nature’s Garden and would not shop anywhere else because of their quality and prices.

I only use Natures Garden fragrance oils – attaching a photo of your Juicy Couture Type fragrance oil.
