Coconut oil is perfect for smoothing out dry, frizzy hair and it is also good for nourishing dry, split ends. If you have a sensitivity to products that contain a lot of chemicals or fragrances, this is a good, natural alternative to lotion or body cream and of course, it’s perfect for hydrating that itchy, dry skin. Since coconut oil contains Vitamin E, it is also perfect for helping to delay the look of wrinkles.

Both types of coconut oil will give your soap a wonderful, bubbly lather and can also contribute to making your soap hard and white.

9 Soy Candle Recipes 9 Soy Candle Recipes

If you are interested in candle making and are new to the craft, creating a candle may seem like an easy process. Well, it is easy, once you have done some research and Nature’s Garden can help you out. We have 9 soy candle recipes that use the three types of soy wax that we carry. These recipes are fun and creative and are easy to follow. Not only will you see that making your own candle can be easy, but making the world smell good is a very important job!

There are many factors that go into making a candle that will not only burn properly but will have a good hot and cold throw. Once you start doing research on candle making, then it can seem a bit overwhelming. What type of wick do you use? Which one burns the best? What type of wax do I want to use? I know I want soy wax, but what kind of soy wax? What does it mean melt point? When do I add the fragrance? How much color do I add? Not to worry, folks! Nature’s Garden is here for you and can answer all those questions for you.

9 Soy Candle Recipes: The Soy Waxes9 Soy Candle Recipes: The Soy Waxes

Not all soy wax is created equal. There are differences in the melt temperatures, hot and cold throws, and in appearances. Before we get started on our soy candle recipes, let me familiarize you with the different soy waxes we have. We have three types that we will discuss: NG 100% Soy Wax, Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 and Golden Foods Soy Wax 464.

As we all know, Soy Wax is produced from soybeans. It is a pure and natural vegetable wax that is considered kosher. Not only is this wax non-toxic, but it is also biodegradable. In fact, soy wax is very environmentally friendly and is made from a renewable resource. Candles made from soy wax are very clean burning. Something that is of importance in this day and age.  There is a reduction in soot, and due to the makeup of soy itself, the burn time of a soy wax increases. Soy Wax candles will burn slower and cooler compared to a straight paraffin wax candle.

All of Nature’s Garden soy waxes are sold in flake style. Most people find this type easier to work with. Granulated waxes have a tendency to be messier. They are all-natural so you can rest assured that you are going to have a clean burning candle in your home and for your customers. You will also note, that your finished candles may have a rough exterior. They may not look smooth and creamy. Well, it is a natural wax, therefore you will have a more natural finish. If this is not the look you would like it can be easily solved with a few tricks to help give your candles a more professional look!

9 Soy Candle Recipes:  NG 100% Soy Wax (GF 415)9 Soy Candle Recipes:  NG 100% Soy Wax 415

NG 100% Soy Wax 415 is straight soy. There are no additives to enhance the hot or cold throw. Therefore, soy wax is perfect in massage candles or any other type of recipe that is applied to the body. The melt point for 415 Soy is 120-125 degrees Fahrenheit. This higher melt point allows this wax to carry a higher fragrance load. You can also blend this soy wax with other waxes such as beeswax, paraffin or microcrystalline waxes.

9 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 9 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 

Our next wax is our Golden Foods Soy Wax 444. This is a popular seller here at Nature’s Garden. So what makes this wax different? Well, there are soy based additives added to this wax. That still makes it a natural wax, however, these additives help increase pour temperature, helps reduce frosting issues and give a smoother finish to your candle’s appearance. The scent throw, both hot and cold, are improved also. You may also blend this wax with other waxes such as paraffin or microcrystalline waxes. The 444 Soy Wax also has a higher melt point and can hold up to 12% scent per pound, making a stronger scented candle.  However, you should always test as not all fragrance oils can be used at this percentage and may seep.  

9 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 4649 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 464

Lastly, we have our Golden Foods Soy Wax 464. This is a very popular candle wax. While this wax is similar to our Golden Foods Soy Wax 444, the main difference will be the melt point. The 464 Soy wax has a lower melt point and this allows for better glass adhesion in the finished candle. Another difference would be the maximum scent load for this wax which is 10-12% of scent per pound of wax. We do suggest keeping the fragrance percent at 10 to reduce the possibility of fragrance oil seepage.

Before you get started on creating any of our recipes, follow this link to How to Make Soy Candles. This is a free candle class that can be downloaded or printed. In this class, you can learn about wicks, pour lines, scenting the wax, pour temps and more. And now that we are familiar with the different types of soy waxes, let’s move on to our soy candle recipes and get you inspired to start candle creating!

We scented our candle in relaxing NG Cashmere & Silk Type fragrance oil.

We chose our feisty Hot Pink Pomegranate fragrance oil for this. It’s a bright blend of ginger, pomegranate, citrus and jasmine!

Handmade Lotion RecipesHandmade Lotion Recipes

In today’s world, most people like to make their own soaps, bath and body products and even cosmetics. Generally, creating those things are not hard at all. Not only do you know the ingredients that will go in your product, but you can make the product to fit your needs or the needs of your customers or loved ones. Many people nowadays have skin issues that require skin-sensitive ingredients. That is another reason why many people turn to handmade goods. And like we stated before, it isn’t hard to do. Take a look through some of Nature’s Garden handmade lotion recipes. You will see how really simply and easy it is to make lotion. Also, with only a few ingredients, you can make a perfectly beautiful lotion that could rival the most expensive store brands out there in the market!

 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Some Key Ingredients

Before we get started on our recipes, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the key ingredients that you need to make lotion with. Really you can make a lotion with just shea butter and coconut oil whipped together. However, while those things will soften and hydrate your skin, they can separate while sitting when water is added. Another thing, they may not absorb into your skin very well, leaving you feeling greasy and sticky. The following components that we will discuss are key to getting a beautiful emulsified lotion that will not leave your skin feeling tacky and absorb beautifully.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 EmulsifierHandmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 Emulsifier

Our first ingredient is Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, or BTMS 25 Emulsifier is a natural, conditioning emulsifier that can be used in hair and skin care. BTMS is naturally derived from Colza oil. Colza oil is a non-drying oil that is obtained from seeds of the rapeseed plant. It isn’t truly rapeseed oil, but a derivative of it. BTMS can be used in creams and lotions to provide a soft, powdery feel to the skin and is very gentle on the skin and hair.

Handmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and SilkyHandmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and Silky

Next ingredient is our two other emulsifying waxes. We have Emulsifying Wax- Traditional and Silky Emulsifying Wax. While these waxes are not 100 percent natural, they are partial plant based and give wonderful structure to any type of lotion, cream, shampoo or conditioner. Both traditional and silky are self-emulsifying, low odor, highly stable, and highly compatible. Low concentrations of these waxes will improve the consistency and stability of emulsions. Which one do you choose for your product? Which ever you want! So, what exactly is the difference? The only difference is silky will give your lotion a lovely, silky-soft feel to you skin long after the lotion or cream has absorbed.  They can be used interchangeably.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen PreservativeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen Preservative

Preservatives are essential to cosmetic formulations because they kill germs that can make you and your customers very sick. Optiphen is a liquid, paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservative that provides broad spectrum preservation against bacteria, yeast and mold, the presence of caprylyl glycol. It also imparts an exceptional feel to the finished formulation which makes it useful in creams, sunscreens, lotions, cosmetics, body washes and shampoo recipes. This is a definite must have in any of your water based bath and body products that are created from scratch.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Stearic Acid and Sodium Lactate

Stearic Acid is a plant based ingredient that is widely used in bath and body products, soaps and even in candles. For bath and body products, it is a wonderful addition to thicken up your product. In soaps, it is used to harden your bars of soap and to make them last longer. When used in candles, it also helps harden the wax and is perfect for making pillar candles or any type of mold candle. Another option is sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is a natural moisturizer, humectant, and pH regulator. It is used in handmade soaps, lotions, shampoo, and other bath and body products.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Distilled Water

Yes, distilled water is an important ingredient to any of your lotions. You will see in any of our lotion recipes, that we ask you to heat your distilled water up to a specific ingredient and hold it there for 20 minutes. This is to ensure that you have destroyed any bacteria that may have been lingering around in the water.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: The Phases

Also you will notice that each recipe is done in phases. You have your Water Phase, which is where you are heating your water up. The Oil Phase. This is where you will heat and melt any of your butters and oils and waxes to a specific temperature. Next will be the Mixing Phase. Your will then mix together your water and butter and oils with a stick blender to emulsify. Lastly, you have your Cool Down Phase where you allow the lotion mixture to cool to a specific temperature before adding your fragrance oil and Optiphen. Then, you will package up your lotion and label if desired and you are ready to gift everybody you love with some handmade love! Now, let’s talk about our recipes!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Cocoa Dream Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Cocoa Dream Cream Recipe

Our first lotion is our Cocoa Dream Cream!   This is a thick, luscious cream that smells heavenly with our Butter Brickle fragrance oil. A soft, buttery vanilla fragrance that leave you smelling sweet! Sweet almond oil, and cocoa butter will give your skin a reason to be happy! It absorbs beautifully and leaves you feeling soft! This cream is also sold as a kit. It would be a perfect way to start learning how to make lotion since you don’t have to commit to large quantities of ingredients. The Cocoa Dream Cream kit is also perfect as gift for somebody who loves to make their own bath and body products!

Plus, we chose our bright, fresh Cucumber Splash fragrance oil. This is a perfect fragrance for lotion or even soap! It smells like spring!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Tropical Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Tropical Lotion Recipe

If you are looking for something more lighter to apply to your skin, try our Tropical Lotion Recipe.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe

Our Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion is a beautiful lotion for any skin! Created with infused waters made from hibiscus flower powder and rosehips flower powder, your skin will thank you for the extra attention. Hibiscus is an herb know for being high in antioxidants and amino acids, and also contain oligopeptides that have been shown to have wrinkle-smoothing properties. Rosehips contain high levels of vitamin C, in addition to vitamins E, A, and D. Rosehips are used in skincare for its high level of antioxidants and anti-aging properties. The hibiscus/rosehip infusion will add a lovely natural pink color to your lotion. For the fragrance we chose our Peach Magnolia Raspberry fragrance oil. This scent smells of juicy raspberries and peaches with a light floral background.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Frappe Mocha Body Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Frappe Mocha Body Cream Recipe

Our Frappe Mocha Body Cream is perfect for those with a coffee addiction! This cream is made with cocoa butter and sweet almond Oil. Both are perfect for making your skin feel soft and silky. As for the water part, however, we created it using a distilled coffee brew. This lotion is not only made with coffee, but the steeped coffee water truly helps punch up the coffee fragrance. For the fragrances, we chose both Fresh Brewed Coffee- World’s Best and our Chocolate Fudge Fragrance oil. If you didn’t want a Frappe Mocha before, you will after you smell this body cream! This body cream also comes in a kit size if you are looking for a Christmas gift to give to somebody special!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream Recipe

This cream recipe is a favorite of mine. Natural Face Cream is made with an infusion of calendula flowers.  Calendula is believed to reduce inflammation, reduce acne, and promote healthy skin, which makes this a perfect addition to a night cream. Also, we have included Avocado Oil and Grapeseed Oil. Grapeseed oil does not clog pores, absorbs easily into the skin, does not leave a greasy feel to the skin, and provides the skin with anti inflammatory properties.  It is high in linoleic acid; providing mosturizing effects to the skin. Avocado Oil is a rich, moisturizing oil that is perfect for those with sensitive skin. This lotion is also available in a kit.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion Recipe

Back in the 1970s there was a lotion my grandmother used a lot. It was called Rose Milk lotion and our Rose Lotion recipe truly reminds me of her when I use it. We infused our distilled water with our red Rose Buds & Petals. Rose water is the perfect addition to any skin-care regime. Its use dates back to days of Cleopatra and has many incredible benefits to its use. Rose water is perfect for any type of skin. It has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory and has a load of antioxidants in it. We also used cocoa butter, fractionated coconut oil and meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil is a wonderful, light oil that absorbs easily into the skin, leaving you feeling soft and not greasy! We chose our Fresh Cut Roses fragrance oil to scent this beautiful lotion.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar Recipe

Solid Lotion Bar is a quick and simple lotion that is perfect for those who like to hydrate their skin on the go! Made with shea butter, beeswax and jojoba oil, you have a lotion that absorbs quickly, seals in the moisture and keeps the winter dry skin at bay! This lotion is perfect for gym bags, purses, backpacks. No need to worry about loose caps and possible leakage with this lotion! We scented this lotion bar with our Beautiful Babe fragrance oil. If you are familiar with Estee Lauder’s Beautiful perfume, then you know how good this lotion will smell!  This fragrance is a delicate rose, jasmine and carnations with undertones of sweet melon and plum!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion Recipe

Even though it says Wine Lotion, we did not use actual wine in the recipe. However, we did use our Resveratrol Extract Powder. Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in in the skin of red grapes. This powder is similar in the same properties of red wine, meaning it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and is used in products that fight acne. Also, Resveratrol is used in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cosmetic products. It will provide anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling.

We also included cocoa butter, grapeseed oil and Jojoba Oil. Both of these oils are wonderful for the skin! Grapeseed oil is light and non-greasy feeling on the skin.  Jojoba oil is considered a “liquid wax” and it will lock in the moisture and keeps your skin hydrated. We chose our Shiraz fragrance oil to help round out our “wine theme”. This is a beautiful, light fruity but robust red wine scent! A must try for wine lovers! 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Chamomile Lotion Recipe

Our last recipe for today is our Chamomile Lotion Recipe. This is an easy, basic recipe that is perfect for beginners. We used apricot kernel oil and grapeseed oil. Both are light, absorb-able and non-greasy oils and are perfect when you want a light lotion. This would be a perfect summer-time lotion with no heavy oils or butters. The fragrance oil we chose is the delicate Chamomile fragrance oil. Chamomile fragrance oil smells of freshly picked chamomile flowers with hints of fresh green herbs.

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free ChristmasOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free Christmas

Most of us in today’s world, have the idea that Christmas has to be picture perfect. We watch the movies on the Hallmark Channel and expect our Christmas to be just like on TV.

However, we don’t live our lives scripted. It’s always important to remember that the Christmas tree doesn’t have to look like Martha Stewart decorated it. Our Christmas cookies do not need to look like they came straight out of Bon Appetit magazine. Christmas is a beautiful time to simply spend with loved ones. Those will be the memories that your children can cherish and remember when they grow older. It’s not about how perfect the ornaments were hung on the tree. It’s about the memory you have of each ornament that you hang on those branches. It isn’t about how perfectly edged the icing was on the cookies. It’s about how awesome those cookies tasted no matter how much icing Junior glopped onto the snowman shaped cookie.

Enjoy your holidays! Take some shortcuts when it comes to having friends or family over. It’s okay to have something that’s not made from scratch! Homemade gifts don’t have to say you don’t have the funds to buy elaborate gifts. If you create things for certain people in mind, then you have given something to somebody that says, “I took my time and love to make you something I knew you would enjoy.” That type of Christmas is perfect in every way. Follow this link to read up on how to have a stress free Christmas before you start running in a million directions!

 

 

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is our Candy Cane Candle Recipe. This is truly a fun candle to have on your tabletop during the Christmas season. This is a simple candle to create. We used our awesome Joy Wax. Joy Wax is a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is easy to work with, even if you’ve never made candles before. Our Joy Wax has a wonderful hot and cold throw. It has a nice creamy finish and sets up beautifully in your containers. The candy cane candle is layered in pink, red and white with a fluffy, whipped wax topping! Yes, you can create fluffy whipped toppings with this wax. To complete the “candy” theme of the candle, we placed two swirled candy embeds made from our Pillar of Bliss. Pillar of Bliss is also a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is perfect for creating embeds or wax melts. It hardens up nicely to allow for easy release from molds.

We have scented the candle in our Candy Cane fragrance oil. This scented oil is a yummy blend of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, strawberries and vanilla. This fragrance is a must for any type of Christmas projects you have in mind!

While we did layer it to have the look of a candy cane, the powders and clays will combine once you start using it, however, it will still smell divine. Just like a stick of peppermint candy!

The fizz and bubble and will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good! We have used cocoa butter, mango butter, kaolin clay powder, and baking soda to name just a few of the ingredients.
