Also, you can use herbs to provide your soaps with a natural green color! Many herbs that come from plants containing chlorophyll will do the trick, but here are a few that we like to use in soaps. First, we have Parsley Leaf Powder. Not only does this herb provide a nice, earthy green color, but it will perfectly nourish your skin with nutrients. Also, you can use Green Tea Powder in any soaps to create a nice green color. Plus, this lovely herb will provide gentle exfoliation to the skin along with beneficial antioxidant properties. Either would be perfect for making some homemade soaps!

While many other herbs can be used to naturally color any bath and body product, the Alkanet Root is for cold process soap only. This means that you, unfortunately, won’t be able to use this to make natural purple MP soap. However, you can create some pretty gorgeous and natural cold process soaps! We at Natures Garden don’t carry this particular herb, but we still thought it was a great one to mention since it can provide a pretty purple color. Also, this can be used in differing amounts to provide a pink or even a blue color!

How Do I Naturally Color Soap?: What is Alkanet

If you are curious to learn more about Alkanet as a natural colorant, then Lovely Green’s Growing Alkanet. Lovely Green uses a touch of this very herb to lightly color her typical lavender soap. It is a natural, light purple hue that is very pretty. The color was especially for a lavender soap! So, you will definitely want to check this herb out.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion RecipeShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe

While gorgeous, sun-kissed skin is sought after by so many of us, it can be dangerous trying to get your skin the perfect color. If you frequent tanning beds or lay out in the sun for too long, then you’re putting your skin at a higher risk of skin cancer. This is due to the excess exposure to the UV light, which is why too much sun can actually become a bad thing. Plus, there are some people that just can’t ever tan. Personally, I fall into this category. No matter how much sun I get, I never can tan. My skin goes from pale, sunburnt, and right back to pale. So frustrating! But, a good bronzing lotion can be a used as a perfect solution to both these problems. These lotions help provide a light, golden color without any damaging UV light. So, we at Natures Garden decided to create the Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe.

This lotion recipe uses cocoa power to provide a natural colorant to create a perfect color for the recipe. This herb is a perfect colorant for a bronzer, as the cocoa powder is a shade that doesn’t leave you looking orange. Furthermore, this homemade bronzing lotion has all the skin nourishing benefits of regular lotion recipes.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion Fragrance OilShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion Fragrance Oil

Our wonderful homemade lotion recipe is easy to create and smells great thanks to this wonderful fragrance oil. NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells similar to a popular suntan lotion.  If you like the smell of Coppertone suntan lotion, this fragrance oil will make you very happy!  This fragrance is a wonderful arrangement of green herbs, jasmine, rose, lavender, and lilac.  This fragrance oil is a summer favorite here at Natures Garden!

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Preparing Your Equipment and Work Space

Before you begin creating your homemade lotion recipe, there are a few things that you may want to do to prepare. These preparations will make the process easier and even make it quicker. First, you will want to clean your equipment and supplies for this recipe, which makes sure that everything is ready for you to use. Also, you may want to clean and wipe down your work space. This will make sure that you have enough room to work on your lotion. Also, we suggest that you wear a pair of gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe. After everything is clean and ready, its time to start creating this lovely lotion recipe.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Preparing the Water

First, you are going to want to prepare the water for your lotion recipe. So, you will need to add some distilled water to your stove pot. You are going to need to boil the water to kill bacteria and make sure your lotion is as clean as possible. After your water is heated, you are going to need 48 ounces. So, make sure that you have more than this amount in your stove pot, as the some of the water will evaporate during the heating process.

Now, you will need to heat your water to at least 185 degrees Fahrenheit. After the water reaches this temperature, you will want to make sure the water holds this temperature for at least five minutes. Once this amount of time has passed, you can remove the pot of water from the heat source. You will need to measure 48 ounces of the water into one of your mixing bowls. At this point, you are going to want your measured water to cool a bit. After your water has cooled you can move on to the next step.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Cooling the Water

Next, we are going to mix the water with the Goat’s Milk Multi-Base Lotion. Before you go to start mixing these ingredients, you need to make sure that your water is at the right temperature. First, you need to let your water cool down. While we needed to boil the water to sterilize it, we can’t immediately use the hot water in this mixture. If we use this hot water with our lotion base, then we are likely going to break down the base. So, you are going to need to cool your water to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit before you can combine this with the base.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Combining the Water and Lotion BaseShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Combining the Water and Lotion Base

Now that your water has cooled to the right temperature you are ready to add the goat milk lotion base to the water. So, weigh 16 ounces of the Goat’s Milk Multi-Base Lotion and add it to your previously measured 48 ounces of water. After you combine these two ingredients you are going to mix them well. You will need to use your stick blender to emulsify these two ingredients together. So, you will want to continue mixing until all the water has been incorporated. If you are wondering when your mixture is finished, then know that you will be able to tell that you are done when the mixture looks like lotion.

Now that your homemade lotion has been made, we are ready to add the color to your recipe. I added this at the same time as my water,  You can add it before the water or after, the choice is totally yours.  While this lotion won’t help you get a tan, it is perfect for adding a bit of color to your skin while you moisturize. For this homemade lotion recipe we are using organic cocoa powder to create a natural color for this lotion. So, take 5 teaspoons of the Organic Cocoa Powder and add it to your lotion base mixture. After the cocoa powder has been measured and added to your mixture, you need to mix thoroughly. You will need to make sure to break up any clumps of the herb. Breaking these clumps will ensure that the color is distributed evenly throughout the entire mixture. It may be helpful to use the stick blender again to mix this all together. This will leave your lotion with a light, bronzing pigment that is beautiful and naturally colored.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, you are going to want to add the scented oil into your bronzing lotion. This ingredient takes your gorgeous and nourishing lotion and brings it up a notch. So, you are going to measure 1.92 ounces of the NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion Fragrance Oil. You can either weigh this amount in a small bowl or directly into the lotion mixture. Then, you will want to combine the scented oil with your lotion and mix well. Once all of your fragrance oil has been thoroughly included into the lotion mixture. After everything is mixed together you are ready to move on to the next step.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Shimmer and SparkleShimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Adding the Shimmer and Sparkle

We can’t forget about adding all the shimmer and shine! Our last ingredient for this recipe is going to be the gorgeous 24 K Gold Mica Pigment. This ingredient is going to enhance the gold hue of the natural colorant and leave you sparkling. So, let’s get started! You will need to take three teaspoons of the gold mica pigment and add it to your lotion. Then, make sure that you thoroughly mix the mica into your lotion recipe. After all the sparkle and shine has been completely incorporated, your lotion will be ready to use. If you feel like you need a bit more glam, then you can try adding a bit more mica. However, our recipe has a great amount of shine. So, you should have enough glam for your pretty bronzing lotion.

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Packaging You Finished Product

Next, you are going to bottle up your finished homemade bronzer lotion. Since it would be difficult to pour your lotion directly into a bottle from the mixing bowl, we are going to take a different approach to packaging. First off you are going to need to transfer all of your lotion into the gallon Ziplock bag. You can use your mixing spoon or spatula to transfer everything into the Ziplock. After, you are going to seal the bag and use a pair of scissors to cut a small piece off the corner of the bag. However, you may want to set up your 8 oz bullet bottle before cutting the bag. Now can use your Ziplock bag to neatly and quickly fill your bottles. Once you have filled all your clear bullet bottles you can screw the 24/410 lotion pump onto your bottles

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Using Your Finished Product

Finally, your diy bronzer lotion is complete and ready to use! You can perfectly use this lotion to add a bit of color and shimmer to your skin. You will be able to use this delightful cosmetic lotion to add a bronzing glow to your skin. Just remember that this lotion isn’t meant for helping tan, but just adds some color and nourishes your skin. While the lotion is perfect for adding some color to your skin, the appearance isn’t the only benefit that you can get from this lotion base recipe. Our effective lotion base recipe uses wonderful, skin-loving ingredients that create a great lotion recipe. This Lotion Multi-Base uses vitamins and luxurious cosmetic oils. You are sure to love this homemade cosmetic lotion recipe!

Shimmering Bronzer Lotion Recipe: Standards of Beauty Through Time

While it may seem like the standard of beauty that we all know of today is obvious and permanent, there are other ideas on what is beautiful is different through time and in different cultures. I’ve always found it interesting to learn about all the changes in preferences for make up, fashion, and body type. Some ideas of ideal beauty from times and places are even considered unattractive today and vice versa. For example, in the Elizabethan Era pale skin was considered ideal and women would use a white powder, ceruse, to make themselves look paler. So, the idea of tanning or using bronzing lotion would’ve been ridiculous to people of this culture. But, this isn’t the only way that cosmetics were used differently throughout history. There are even more beauty standards throughout history. A Buzzfeed Article called “This Is How Dramatically Women’s Makeup Has Changed Throughout History” talks about a few different appearance preferences that people have tried to achieve through cosmetics.

Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, comes from the rhizomes (or roots) of a herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family. It is native to India and Southeast Asia.  In Asia, turmeric is known as “manjal” or even “kasturi manjal”. Much like its cousin the ginger root, Turmeric can be grated and used fresh. Turmeric rhizomes, when not used fresh, will be boiled in water, dried in hot ovens, and then they are ground into the powder that we are all familiar with.

This perennial plants can grow up to over 3 feet tall. It has cylinder-type roots that range in color from yellow to orange. Heavy branches grow up from the roots.

In fact, Turmeric has been used in medicine for thousands of years and is a major part of Ayurveda or Siddha (Indian traditional medicine). This powerful herb is used to treat problems such as, indigestion, throat infections, common colds, or liver ailments. Turmeric can also be used topically to cleanse wounds or treat skin sores.

These properties actually work to reduce brain inflation, which is believed to be the main cause of Alzheimer’s Disease. So, essentially, turmeric can work to delay the onset of this horrible disease.

So you see, this bright, yellow orange colored powder is incredibly versatile in any type of form. Let’s now move onto our recipe!

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Ingredients that Nature’s Garden has to offer

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You Will Need

  • Mixing Bowls (you will need one)
  • Scale
  • Mixing Spoons

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

  • 96 grams Turmeric Powder
  • 224 grams Bentonite Clay Powder
  • 24 drops Vitamin E Oil
  • 96 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Turmeric PowderTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Turmeric Powder

So let’s begin now with our turmeric face mask! First, we are going to start with the turmeric powder. So, get your scale out. You will also be using a medium sized bowl. Have your scale tared out. Then, go ahead and weigh out 96 grams of your turmeric powder.

 

 

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Bentonite Clay PowderTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Bentonite Clay Powder

First, let’s talk about Bentonite Clay Powder. Bentonite is a wonderful addition to any face mask! This type of clay, when used in face masks, helps clean impurities from the skin. When used in soaps, bentonite is good at treating oily skin. Also, when used in bath bombs, it helps harden them. In addition, bentonite is useful in thickening lotions.

So, now we are going to weigh out the bentonite. You will add the clay to the same bowl you have your turmeric powder in. Tare out your scale and to the medium bowl, add 224 grams of bentonite clay. Next, mix the two ingredients together until everything seems evenly dispersed.

 

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Add the Vitamin E OilTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Add the Vitamin E Oil

The next ingredient we will be adding is Vitamin E. Vitamin E from Nature’s Garden comes in the purest form, is also known as Tocepherol T-50. This is not tocopherol acetate (the form found in many vitamin E capsules).   Vitamin E is a wonderful antioxidant and is fabulous for your skin.

So, to the bowl containing the powdered ingredients, you will be adding your Vitamin E oil. Using a disposable pipette you will add 24 drops of the Vitamin E oil right on top of the powder. Finally, use a spoon or spatula to mix the ingredients together.

 

Turmeric Face Mask recipe: Packaging your Facial MaskTurmeric Face Mask recipe: Packaging your Facial Mask

For this recipe, we decided to package the powder portion of the face mask and the vegetable glycerin separately. We chose to create the facial mask recipe this way for a couple of reasons. First, creating the facial mask mixture separately without the water you will not need to add a preservative. In addition, you will be able to prepare a quick product for your customers. This recipe can be made in just a few minutes. Each 2 ounce jar will create approximately 4 facial masks.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: The Powdered Portion

Now that your powdered portion is complete, you can begin packaging this portion of the facial mask. So, using a spoon, fill each of your 2 ounce white double wall jars and place a lid on each jar.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: The Liquid PortionTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: The Liquid Portion

The next part of our recipe is the vegetable glycerin. Vegetable Glycerin is a humectant, meaning, it draws moisture to your skin. So by adding vegetable glycerin to this recipe, your skin will be left feeling soft and hydrated.

Next,we will prepare the liquid portion of the facial mask. Water, while it is an ingredient in the recipe, will not be used until you are ready mix and apply the face mask. So, we will prepare eight 1/2 ounce bottles for the vegetable glycerin. To each bottle, add 12 grams of the vegetable glycerin and cap them with the white ribbed lids.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Using Your Facial Mask

As we talked about previously, by mixing this mask on an as needed basis, it will prolong the shelf life and can be made quickly when needed. With that being said, let’s talk about using the mask. It is really a simple process. Also, if you are selling this mask as a product, you can sell the jar and bottle as a set and label it with instructions.

Just follow this link to Allrecipes.com to see just how many types of dishes turmeric is used in.  There are literally hundreds of recipes that incorporate turmeric in them.  One very popular and well-known way to use turmeric is always curry!

Our next recipe from Natures Garden is a bubbling bath salts recipe.  With St. Patty’s Day right around the corner, we really thought you would enjoy this recipe.  We’ve scented it with Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil and added a couple different types of cosmetic salts.  In addition, we added some fun layers to give our layered bath salts some added interest.  Finally, we’ve added sodium cocoyl isethionate, which just happens to be my absolute favorite ingredients.  If you have tried adding it to your products yet, you are missing out.  SCI will leave your skin so soft and silky, it is AMAZING!  I consider this ingredient a must have for those creating their own bath and body products.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Dead Sea Salt High Mineral Fine GroundBubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Dead Sea Salt High Mineral Fine Ground

The Dead Sea is known for its Dead Sea salt; which is said to help heal the body.  Dead Sea salt contains the following beneficial minerals:  Potassium, Magnesium, Bromide, and Calcium Chloride.  The magnesium found in Dead Sea salt helps to calm the nervous system, and helps combat aging, water retention, and stress. Potassium provides the body with energy.  Bromides help to reduce muscle tension.  Calcium increases circulation, and helps prevent water retention. Dead Sea salt is used to make scented bath salts, in some cosmetics, and to make soap salt bars.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

410 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate- SCI
420 grams Dead Sea Salt
60 grams Hawaiian Black Salt Coarse Ground
41 grams Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil
4 grams Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams of 24K Gold Mica Pigment

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Weighing Out the Hawaiian Black Salt

To begin, you will need a small bowl.  Then, weigh out 60 grams of the coarse Hawaiian Black Salt.  I chose to leave this portion scent free.  Since it is black, I worried the oil might cause the activated charcoal that is naturally present in the salt to bleed into other layers.  So, simply weigh out the salt and set the bowl aside.  We will need it when we begin layering our bubbling bath salts recipe.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Weighing Out the Dead Sea Salt

First, you will need a deep mixing bowl.  You will need to weigh out 420 grams of the Dead Sea salt.  If you notice any clumps in the salt, use your hands to break them up.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Adding the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate

Now, we will be adding the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, or SCI, to the mixture.  So, tare out your scale and add 410 grams of the SCI.  Again, if you find any clumps, be sure to break them up.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Adding the Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil

The next step is adding the fragrance oil.  You want to add your fragrance oil directly to the same mixing bowl.  So, to your mixing bowl, add 41 grams of Natures Garden’s Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil.  Then, using your hands, mix the ingredients together.  Continue to mix until everything is evenly and fully combined.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Separating the Bath Salts

Next, we will begin separating our bath salts.  You will two additional bowls.  In the first bowl, add 208 grams of the salt mixture.   To the second bowl, you will also add 208 grams of the salt mixture.  The remaining salt mixture can stay in the same bowl.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Coloring the Bath Salts

Our layered bubbling bath salts recipe will be colored in four different ways.  First, we will use a FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  Then, we will leave one layer its natural color.  Our third layer in the foaming bath salts will be colored with a shimmering 24K gold mica pigment.  Lastly, our final layer is our Hawaiian black salt.  Hawaiian black salt is naturally colored with activated charcoal, so we will not need to color that layer either.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Coloring the Green Bath Salts

We will begin with the bowl of our largest portion of bath salts.  Your largest portion of the bath salts will be colored with the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  So, to the largest portion of bath salts, add 4 grams of the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant.  Then, use your hands to mix the colorant completely with the salt mixture.  Also, make sure the mixture is free of any clumps.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Coloring the Gold Bath Salts

Next, you will begin coloring your gold bath salts.  So, in the bowl containing one of the two smaller portions of bath salts, we will add mica.  To this bowl, add 4 grams of your 24K gold mica pigment from Natures Garden.  Then, mix the mica into the bath salts using your hands.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Uncolored Bath Salts

Next, you simply need to know that the remaining smaller bowl of uncolored bath salts will be left as it is.  However, I do suggest mixing the the bath salts with your hands at this time.  As you are mixing, check for any clumps.  If you find clumps break them up before we begin layering our bath salts in our jars.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Coarse Hawaiian Black Salt

Finally, since Hawaiian black salt is already black in color, we will not need to do anything with the salt.  It is naturally perfect just the way it is!

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Prepare Your Jars

Before we begin packaging our layered bath salts, we will need to prepare our jars.  This recipe will make four 8 ounce jars of bubbling bath salts.  So, go ahead and get your 8 ounce jars out at this time.  Place all four in front of you.  You do not need your lids at this time.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Layering the Bubbling Bath Salts

Now, we will begin layering the bubbling bath salts.  While we use four different colors, most colors will be used multiple times.  We used two layers of green, two layers of white, and two layers of gold.  The black will be layer a single layer right in the center of the jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The First Green Layer

We will begin with our first green layer.  Start by putting a layer of green bath salts on the bottom of each of your jars.  When looking at your jar, this layer should be about 1/4″ wide.  Once each of your four jars has a green layer, you are ready to move to the next layer.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The First White Layer

Our next layer will be the uncolored bath salts.  This layer should be about half as thick as your green layer.  Go ahead and place a white layer directly on top of your green layer.  Place a white layer in each jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The First Gold Layer

Now, you will add your first gold layer.  The gold layer should be just as thick as the white layer.  So go ahead and add a layer of your gold bath salts to each jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Black Salt Layer

Finally, you will be adding the black salt layer.  The layer of black salt should be right in the center of your jar.  So, go ahead and add a thin black layer to each jar.  You will end up adding 15 grams of Hawaiian black salt to each jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Second Gold Layer

Next, we will be adding our second gold layer of bath salts.  So, add a second layer of gold bath salts to each jar, directly on top of the black layer.  This layer should be the same thickness as your first gold layer.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Second White Layer

Now, we will be adding the second white layer.  So, go ahead and add a second layer of white bubbling bath salts.  Again, this layer should be the same thickness of your first white layer.  Remember, add a layer to each of the four jars before moving on.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Second Green Layer

Finally, we will add our second green layer.  This is the layer that will fill the remaining portion of our jars.  Once you have filled all of your jars, go ahead and place one of your black lids on top of each jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe:  Using Your Layered Bath Salts

Lastly, let’s talk about using your bath salts.  Bath salts really are simple to use.  While many bath salts are simply composed of various salts, like Epsom Salt, Dead Sea Salt, or even Himalayan Pink Salt, this particular recipe is a little bit different.  Our bath salt recipe includes SCI.  So, in order to get the best results, you want to add a few scoops of the bath salts directly under your warm running bath water.  As you can see, not only will you get the benefits of the salts, you also will enjoy a wonderful bubble bath!
