How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Creating the Borax Solution

First, you are going to need to create your borax solution for this recipe. While it is the first thing you create for this recipe, it will be the last thing that you will add to your slime mixture. So, you will need to add a teaspoon of the borax to an 8 oz bullet bottle to start. Then, you will add eight ounces or cup of warm water to the bottle (you will want to fill the eight ounce bullet bottle completely without overfilling). Then, you will need to add the smooth disc lid to the bullet bottle. Now, you need to make sure the lid is closed and sealed tight. Then, you will be able to shake the bottle to mix up your borax solution. After the warm water and borax are fully mixed, you can set this mixture aside for a later step.

In the description for each of our fragrance oils, you can find out whether the scent you like can be used in slime.

However, some of our fragrance oils can only be added to candles and can’t be slime scents. These fragrance oils are often these are our spicy scents, like the Cinnamon Buns Fragrance Oil shown in the picture. Although small amounts of spice won’t irritate the skin, fragrances are concentrated to provide a fantastic aroma. So, the spice in strong fragrances can irritate the skin in this higher concentration.

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: How Much Fragrance Can I Use?How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: How Much Fragrance Can I Use?

Once you’ve found your favorite fragrance oil for slime, you need to determine how much of the scented oil to add to your recipe. For this slime recipe, we would recommend that you use about 4 ml (about 5 grams) of fragrance oil. You can measure this amount using a disposable pipette. This will ensure that your amount of fragrance is within the maximum recommended amount to be body safe.

If you want to add even more fragrance to your slime recipe, then you will want to pay attention to the maximum usage rates. As you can see in the picture, the maximum use for lotions is provided. We would put slime in this category with lotion recipes as the slime would stay on your skin for longer periods of time. For our Bubble Gum Fragrance Oil, the maximum amount we could include would be 5% of the total recipe’s weight. So, in this slime recipe, you could a maximum 13 grams of fragrance. If you don’t have a craft scale to weigh this amount, you can easily use a food scale.

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: How Do I Calculate the Amount of Fragrance Oil I Need?

If your chosen fragrance has a different suggested usage rate, you need to determine how much fragrance oil you plan to use. For this example, I will use 5% (which can be converted to 0.05). So, you need to weigh out your glue and shaving cream. You will simply take the weight of your slime and multiply by the percentage of fragrance oil that we suggest. We will use a cup of glue, which should weigh about 260 grams. So, you would multiply this weight by the suggested usage rate for this fragrance oil.

260 g x 0.05 = 13 g

This means that in this case, you will use 13 grams of fragrance oil.

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Adding the Soap Colorant and the Fragrance OilHow to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Adding the Soap Colorant and the Fragrance Oil

Now that you have your colorants and fragrance oils pick out, you are ready to add them to your mixture. You can add in a drop or two of your colorant and mix everything together. Then, you can decide whether you need to add more color. Also, you can use a toothpick to add an amount that is even smaller than a drop. Just dip the toothpick into the colorant and swirl it into your mixture. Once you have a good color, you can add a body safe fragrance oil that you enjoy! Once these are both added, you can mix everything together and move on to the last step!

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Mixing Your SlimeHow to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Mixing Up Your Finished Slime

Now, you are ready to finish mixing your slime. So, you will need your mixture in the medium bowl and the borax solution from before. You will add about one tablespoon to start. Then, begin to mix your slime. We suggest that you use your hands to mix. If you’d like, you can wear disposable gloves while you mix in the borax solution. You will need to add another tablespoon of the borax solution and mix. You will want to continue going back and forth between adding borax and mixing until you reach the right consistency. If the mixture is too sticky, then continue to add more borax. However, you will want to avoid adding too much borax. If you add too much of the borax solution, your slime will be too stiff and not as stretchy. So, make sure you add only small amounts of the solution at a time. 

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Storing Your Slime for Later

After you have gotten the right consistency for your slime, your slime is finished and ready to use! Of course, you can play with and enjoy your finished recipe. When you are ready to put the slime away, you can use an 8 oz clear jar to store it.  Simply put the lid on your clear jars and you can put your slime away for later use. So, your pretty slime with its scrumptious scent will last for another day of fun!

Since this spice is a blend of various herbs, there are many plants that were needed to create this herb wholesale. The essential herbs and spices that are used to create Apple Pie Spice are cinnamon, lemon peel, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. A few of these ingredients can be grown in an herb garden, but many of the spices will become trees. So, most of these spices require more space and effort than other types of herbs. But, we can still discuss how they are grown and harvested.

Apple Pie Spice Uses: Where Do Spices Come From?

First, we have the cinnamon herb, which comes from the bark of the laurel tree. This process is a bit complicated, but it begins by growing the tree for two years. After, the tree is cut down and the following year little shoots will appear. These shoots will have a thin layer of bark on the inside. This bark is collected, dried, and used as the spice we all know and love.

Second, we have lemon peel powder. These lemons grow on trees in warm, full sun conditions. Once the tree is about three years old, it will begin to produce fruit. These fruits are harvested once they are yellow and firm with a slightly glossy appearance. Then, the skin of these fruits will be dried and ground to be used for lemon peel powder.

Next, ginger is a root that can be grown using roots that have visible green “eyes”. These “eyes” will sprout long stems and below the dirt, the root will grow larger. This plant prefers nutrient rich soil that can hold moisture. However, the set up needs to be free draining to prevent over saturating the plant. About eight months after planting, you can dig up the ginger root.

Additionally, cloves are dried flowers that grow on clove trees. These trees prefer a wet, tropical climate and can’t survive below fifty-nine degrees Fahrenheit. These flowers are picked before they have the chance to open. Then, they are sun dried for about five days.

Finally, nutmeg is produced from a nutmeg tree, which creates yellow fruits that are similar to apricots. Inside the fruit are purple/brown seeds that are covered in a red skin. The skin, which is used to make mace, is removed and the seed can be ground into nutmeg.

Lemon Peel BenefitsLemon Peel Benefits

There are many lemon peel benefits that you can use to benefit your body. Both the Lemon Peel Cut and Sifted and the Lemon Peel Powder from Natures Garden are perfect for nourishing your body inside and outside. You will love all the ways that you can use this bright citrus herb in your life. Not only can use this herb to enhance your food recipes, but you can use this herb to create lovely bath and body recipes. So, let’s get into all the benefits and properties of lemon peel.

Lemon Peel Benefits: Growing ConditionsLemon Peel Benefits: Growing Conditions

Lemon trees require a warm climate and are quite sensitive to the cold. The tree will become inactive below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the fruit dies after being exposed to lower than 28 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. So, they will need protection from frost, which can be helped by ensuring that your tree has enough water. Additionally, lemon trees should be provided with full sunlight. While these trees are temperature sensitive, they are able to tolerate many different types of soils. However, these trees will prefer soil that is slightly acidic and well-draining. Further, you should plant your tree in a hole that is slightly shorter than the root ball. Then, replace the dirt and tamp firmly. 

For those in the United States, anyone that doesn’t live in a climate like Florida or California may want to plant your lemon tree indoors. As long as the pot is fairly large and the soil is well draining, the tree should be comfortable as an indoor plant. However, a typical lemon tree has the potential to grow to be 20 feet tall, so you will likely want to prune your tree as it gets too large.

However, the lemons require hot summers to develop the fruit. So, it may be less likely for an indoor tree to produce fruit if you don’t bring your plant outside in the summer. Luckily, there are dwarf lemon tree options, like the Meyer lemon, that are more likely to bear fruit. Since your plant will be inside, it is unlikely that pollinators, like bees, butterflies, and other bugs, can get to your plant. Instead, you can use a paintbrush or cotton swab to rub pollen within the flower. This increase your chance of fruit and lead to a better harvest.

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Emulsifiers

One of the most important parts of making lotion is the emulsifier. This is the ingredient that keeps everything together because the oils and water that are being mixed would separate otherwise. Since oils are non-polar, they only want to mix with other non-polar substances. But, we want these non-polar oils to mix with polar water. Similarly, polar water only wants to mix with other polar things. So, we need an ingredient that has both polar and non-polar parts, which is what we call an emulsifier! As you can see this single ingredient is quite crucial.

Or, your batch may just light lotion that doesn’t require a thickener like stearic acid or sodium lactate. It is all dependent upon the type of lotion you are creating.

How Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Stearic AcidHow Do You Make Scented Lotion?: Stearic Acid

What Type of Scrub Should I Use?What Type of Scrub Should I Use?

What type of scrub should I use? There are many different ways to create a homemade scrub. So, it all depends on what you are looking to exfoliate. In tough, damaged areas you may want a more exfoliating agent. But, you are going to want a gentle exfoliant for sensitive areas, like the face. Further, there are many different kinds of herbs that you can include in your scrub recipes to tailor the scrub to match your needs. For example, you may want to use poppy seeds or salt for a foot scrub for feet with dry, callused skin. If you have less dead skin on your feet, however, then you may want to use sugar or another herb. Plus, there are scrubs that are emulsified and scrubs that are not.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified vs Not Emulsified ScrubsWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified vs Not Emulsified Scrubs

First of all, there are two main types of body scrubs. One type is called an emulsified scrub. This uses an emulsifying ingredient that combines the oils with the other ingredients in the recipe. So, there are no oils seeping out of the recipe. However, there is another type that is not emulsified. While the oils and scrubbing ingredient are still mixed together, the oils aren’t connected to the rest of the recipe. So, you may have to mix the scrub again sometimes as the oils will seep out of the loose mixture and make it more difficult to grab all the ingredients.

What Type of Scrub Should I Use: Emulsified Homemade Salt ScrubWhat Type of Scrub Should I Use?: Emulsified Homemade Salt Scrub

First, you can create some fantastic emulsified salt scrubs. The emulsified scrub blends the ingredients together to make sure that the oils and salt don’t separate. This will ensure that you don’t have oil collected on the top or the bottom of your salt mixture. Also, this scrub, due to the salt, is slightly more abrasive than sugar scrubs and can be used on areas of the body that have a lot of dry skin. So, anyone looking for a tough exfoliant will love this scrub. This scrub would create one of the best hand scrubs and a fantastic salt foot scrub!

How to Use Aroma Beads: Important to Know

While these recipes can be fun, you should be aware of how fragrance oils need to be handled. First, fragrance oils can eat through finished surfaces, painted surfaces, or plastic surfaces. So, be aware of where you set your aroma beads to soak! If the fragrance seeps out onto an unprotected surface it could lead to damage. We like to leave our aroma beads on the back of the toilet in the bathroom as it can’t damage porcelain. Also, fragrance oils should be kept away from children and pets, as they may try to eat the fragrance. If your child does ingest a fragrance, contact poison control immediately.

How to Use Aroma Beads: Can I Use Soap Colorants?

No, you can’t use soap colorants in your diy aroma beads. Also, you can’t use food coloring in these recipes. Both of these colorants are water soluble and the aroma beads will not absorb them as well as they would for a candle colorant. So, using either food coloring or soap colorants would lead to your finished product leaking color until all the color is gone. This will look bad, make a huge mess, and ultimately be a waste of supplies.
