How to use Castor Oil in Soap

There are a lot of different oils available that you can use to add to your soap recipe. Soap contains fatty acids which these oils make up. One oil that stands out is Castor Oil, and I’m going to explain how to use castor oil in soap. Castor Oil is commonly used in cold process soaps to give it a very lathery feel, and is all around a wonderful product to use. You aren’t only limited to soaps though, castor oil can be used in different cosmetic skin oils, bath products, lip products, and many other different products. Explained below are a lot of different benefits you can get out of castor oil, and some of our recipes that we’ve created using it.

 

Castor Oil Usage Rates in Cold Processed SoapCastor Oil Usage Rates in Cold Process Soap

The basic foundation of making any type of soap is mixing fatty acids, lye, and water. For cold process soaps, or any soap in general, NaOH is the preferred lye compound to use. Castor oil is used in the category of fatty acids, as it is made up of three different acids. The fatty acids are identified below with their percentage amount used in the castor oil composition. It is recommended that 5%-8% of castor oil is used in any cold process or hot process soap recipe. Using anywhere above 10% is known to make your soap really stick and unappealing to use.  Also, to saponify one gram of Castor Oil, you need to add .128-.180mg of NaOH for cold processed soap. Castor oil is also known to have a shelf life of one year after opening.

Ricinoleic – 90%
Oleic – 4%
Linoleic – 4%

Properties of Castor Oil

There are many unique properties associated with castor oil that make it a great oil choice to use in cold process soap. Castor Oil is a humectant, which means that it attracts moisture to your skin. Due to this property, it’s great to use in cold process soap, because it’ll allow you to retain moisture when using.  You can also add castor oil to lip balms and massage oils to create a silky glide. The silky glide will make applying the product way easier. On top of its moisturizing qualities, this oil is also known to provide hair growth stimulation as well. Just add the oil to any of our soap or conditioner recipes to see it’s full effects. Adding this oil to cold process soap will also make it more conditioning, thus allowing your hands to be softer after use.

 

Castor Oil for Soap and CosmeticsBenefits of Using Castor Oil

There are many benefits to using castor oil in any of our recipes. This oil is a thicker oil, so any product that it’s used in will be an excellent moisturizer. There are also a lot of natural fatty acids that make up this oil. This makes the oil great for use with the skin.  Castor oil will not only moisturize you, but will nourish your skin as well. When used in lotions and body butters, this oil is also known to make your skin appear more youthful. This oil can also be used in cosmetics, like for example in mascara. When used in mascara, castor oil is believed to be contributed to growing darker, more full eyebrows over time.

Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil

Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden Soap Making Supplies is the aroma of buttery pound cake. Then, you will find middle notes of orange zest. This orange bakery scent finishes with base notes of vanilla,  creamy coconut, and warm caramel. Anyone who has tasted Deborah’s mom’s famous orange Juice cake will love this one! Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil is not only a Natures Garden original fragrance oil, it’s also a best selling aroma.

Cut the Mango Butter Soap BaseCut the Mango Butter Soap Base

To begin creating our soap recipe, we need to prepare our slab of melt and pour soap base. Any of the white bases sold at Natures Garden will be sufficient for making this soap recipe. We sell 11 melt and pour soap bases, 8 of which are white in color that you can choose from. However, for this soap making recipe, we used the mango butter mp soap base. With your digital scale, weigh out 680 grams of soap for the cakes. This is equivalent to about 30 cubes from the slab. The remaining 10 cubes, or 236 grams, will be used at the end of this recipe.

Melt the SoapMelt the Soap

Next, place the cubes in a microwave safe bowl and melt them in 30-second increments. Stir gently in between each 30-second burst to check if there are any chunks of soap lingering. Once it is in a fully melted liquid state, you can pull the bowl out of the microwave.

Add Fragrance Oil and Color StabilizerAdd Fragrance Oil and Color Stabilizer

In the next step, we are going to add scented oil to our soap. Using the digital scale, you will need to measure out and add 34 grams of the Nature’s Garden Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. In addition to that, you will want to match it up by adding 34 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This step is necessary because some fragrance oils will discolor your products just due to the way they are made or mixed. This fragrance oil, in particular, discolors to a dark chocolate shade due to its vanillin content. Adding in the vanilla white color stabilizer can help us to prevent our soap from discoloring due to the vanilla content. After you add that, stir until it is evenly distributed. 

Incorporate the Brown ColorantIncorporate the Brown Colorant

Now, take out a small glass bowl. We are going to mix 4 grams of the Cocoa Powder Organic with 8 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. This mixture is going to form a nice dark brown colorant for our soap. Once it is mixed together and liquefied, add it into the melted soap and stir to incorporate.

Mix in the Other Soap ColorantsMix in the Other Soap Colorants

Next, we need to get the other colorants out for our soap. We used the yellow oxide, orange oxide, and black oxide shades from our FUN Soap Colorants. Take the mixture and add 15 drops of yellow, 8 drops of orange, and 2 drops of black. Then, take a spoon and stir everything evenly together to incorporate the colors with your soap base. After you are finished stirring your soap, the shade should look somewhat similar to our picture to the left. We wanted these to resemble actual orange juice cake, and we liked the shade that this combination of colorants produced. You can always adjust how the color looks if you are not satisfied or would like to make it your own!

Pour the Mixture into the MoldsPour the Mixture into the Molds

Once your melted soap is fragranced, colored, and evenly mixed, you can get the bundt cake silicone soap mold ready. Pour the mixture up to the top of three of the cavities. You will have enough soap to fill up three out of the four bundts.

Spray the SoapSpray the Soap

Now, grab your bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol in it that you prepared earlier in the recipe. Spray your soap in each of the bundts with the rubbing alcohol. This is going to remove any air bubbles that formed. Then, allow some time for all three of the cakes to completely set up before moving onto the decorative toppings!

Remove Soap from MoldsRemove Soap from Molds

Once some time has passed, you can go ahead and remove the soap bundts from their molds. You can either place them on a plate or on the flexible silicone mat from Natures Garden. We decided to use the mat because the next step is going to get a little messy. Place it on a 9″ x 13″ baking pan to give you stability and an easier cleanup. Alternatively, you can line the pan with wax paper, if you prefer.

Melt Down Soap for the IcingMelt Down Soap for the Icing

For the next step, you will need to retrieve the remaining 10 cubes (236 grams) of the melt and pour soap base from the first step. In another microwave safe bowl or glass container, melt the soap down in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. Continue melting until your mango butter melt and pour soap base is in a completely liquid state. Then, add in 11 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance and match it with 11 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Once again, this will help our soap to stay white, which is necessary in order for it to look like icing. Stir well to blend these ingredients. 

Pour Icing onto the SoapsPour Icing onto the Soaps

Now, you will want to use your bottle of rubbing alcohol once again to spray the tops of the bundts. This is going to allow the layer of icing to stick when it is poured over the bundts, as well as for the orange peel to stick in the next step. Carefully drizzle the melted soap base over them back and forth to look like icing. 

Apply the Orange Peel FinishApply the Orange Peel Finish

Since traditional orange juice cake is topped with nuts, we wanted to make sure we depict that in this soap recipe. So, top your soaps off by sprinkling on some pieces of orange peel cut & sifted to resemble the nuts. Orange peel is loaded with vitamins and nutrients that are great for the skin. It can also be used as an anti-bacterial. These qualities make it a great ingredient to add to soap and various other bath or body products. It can be used in bath tea, facial masks, bath salts, shampoo, bath bombs, and lotion. Once the icing has set up and dried, the soap will ready to use!

The Finished ProductThe Finished Product

After you have applied the icing and the orange peel to your soap, they should look like this picture here. The icing will probably have made a mess and spread like ours did. So, once your soap icing has finished setting up, you can remove the excess icing surrounding the soap cakes. It will not take long for the soap to harden and become easier to remove than it would when it is still wet.

Your soap cakes will be ready to use after that! You can set them on the shelves in the shower or the edge of the tub for a nice display. We hope that you had a fun time following along with us making this Orange Juice Cake Soap Recipe.

Pink Sangria Soap RecipePink Sangria Soap Recipe

Fruity beverages always seem to bring an extra sense of brightness into anyone’s life. From the tart taste of lemon to the sweet juiciness of a plum, any kind of fruit can brighten anyone’s day. Nature’s Garden’s Pink Sangria Soap Recipe attempts to bring this same refreshing sensation into anyone’s household. This melt and pour soap recipe is easy for anyone to make. This recipe captures the fruity essence of cherries, oranges, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Below, we mention how you can make your own soap at home that smells just like sangria.

What is Sangria?

The sangria is a drink that has originated from Spain. You can mix this drink using red wine and chopped fruit. Traditionally, you could find this drink served in clay pitchers. Now, you can commonly find sangria mixed into wine glasses. No one has been able to find the true origin of the drink, but it can be traced back to Spain, England, and Greece. The drink has been traced back to the 18th century to another similar drink called Sangaree. The Sangaree was a drink served in the Caribbeans and could be served either iced or hot. There are many different combinations that you can put into the Sangria which make it such a unique drink. Traditionally, this drink can be mixed with any fruit that the user desires to put in it. Some of the fruits that are commonly added include blueberries, strawberries, lemon, grapes, pineapple, and many others. Other additions to Sangria that aren’t unheard of are brandy, sparkling water, and liqueur.

Properties of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapProperties of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap is the soap of choice used in the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe. This soap contains a lot of unique properties, which make it the perfect fit for this recipe. This MP soap base has a translucent color to it that allows embeds to easily show when added to this soap. The shininess of the soap also makes for a nice glistening effect on your end product when you are done making it. For example, in this recipe, we used this soap because it allows the vibrancy of the fruit soap embeds to show the best. Another great property of this soap, as with any other melt and pour soap, is that it has a high moisturizing content. This soap contains 99.5% glycerin and deodorized distilled coconut oil.

Berries Mold 
Mini Cherries Mold 
Lemon/Lime Slices Mold 

 

Preparing the Orange Soap EmbedsPreparing the Orange Soap Embeds

The first fruit that will be included in our pink sangria soap is orange slices. So, we will start by creating these embeds. The first step is to melt 60 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Thoroughly melt the soap in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it is a liquid state, stirring in between each 30-second burst. Once melted, add 4 drops of the Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant and 3 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil.  Stir to blend the ingredients together. Make sure that the orange color and the fragrance oil fully incorporate into the soap. Then, pour the orange soap into the orange slices mold.

Setting up the Orange Soap EmbedsSetting up the Orange Soap Embeds

After pouring the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles. You want to allow adequate time for the soap to setup in the mold. Once the soap sets up, remove the embeds from the mold. Finally, you can set the orange slice embeds aside. They will be used in a later step.

 

 

 

Preparing and Setting up the Soap Cherry EmbedsPreparing and Setting up the Soap Cherry Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is cherries. So, the next embeds we need to create are the cherry soaps. To start off, you want to melt 30 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Make sure that the soap is thoroughly melted. Melting the soap thoroughly will ensure that the cherry soap embeds are as smooth as possible. Once the soap has melted, add 3 drops of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant and 1 gram of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Stir the soap thoroughly to completely mix the red colorant and the fragrance oil.  Pour the red soap into the cherries mold and allow enough time to setup. When the soap appears completely hard, remove it from the mold. 

Preparing and Setting up the Blackberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting up the Blackberry Soap Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is blackberries. So, the next soap embeds we will be making for the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe are the blackberries. To start out, weigh out and melt 150 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Completely melt the soap base before moving on. To the melted soap, you want to add 11 drops of the Ultramarine Violet, 2 drops of the Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant, and 7 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Stir the colors thoroughly into the soap until everything is thoroughly blended. Pour the dark purple melted soap into the berries mold. Set aside and allow adequate time for the soap embeds to completely setup. Once setup, remove them from the mold.

Preparing and Setting Up the Raspberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting Up the Raspberry Soap Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is raspberries. Thus, the next soap embeds to make are the red raspberries. To start out, you want to weigh out and melt 150 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Melt the soap base thoroughly before moving on. Next, add 2 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant, 3 drops of the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant, 3 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant, and 7 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Completely stir the soap until all of the colors have blended together. You want to see a solid, uniform red raspberry color when you are done. Also, make sure to completely mix in the fragrance oil as well. Then, pour the red soap into the berries mold. Allow adequate time for the soap to setup and solidify. Once setup, remove the raspberry embeds from the mold.

Preparing and Setting Up the Strawberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting Up the Strawberry Soap Embeds

The final fruit that goes into a sangria is strawberries. Thus, we are now going to create the strawberry soap embeds.  Start out by melting 230 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Since there is more soap base here, allow adequate time for this soap to melt completely. After the soap is completely melted, add 11 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil and 10 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir the soap completely to allow the red color to mix in, as well as the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. Pour the melted red soap into the strawberries mold. Since the strawberries are thicker than the previous fruits that were made, you want to allow more time for these to set up. When you are pulling the strawberry embeds out of the molds, ensure that their centers aren’t liquid anymore. When you are sure they are completely solid, remove the strawberries from the mold.

Preparing the Soap BasePreparing the Soap Base

Now that all of the fruit soap embeds are done, the last of the soap to melt is the filling of the loaf portion of the soap mold. This portion is what holds all of the fruit soap embeds in place in the soap and represents the pink sangria portion of the soap. To do this, first, weigh out and melt 1650 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Once again, you will need to melt the soap in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Next, add one drop of the Da Bomb Soap Dye and 82 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil to the melted soap base. Stir the ingredients together to completely incorporate the soap dye and the fragrance oil.  We have used the Da Bomb Soap Dye from Natures Garden for this portion. This will allow the clear soap base to maintain a translucent appearance.

Pouring and Finishing the SoapPouring and Finishing the Soap

Get the loaf molds out. Take the fruit molds you made earlier, and add them to the loaf molds. Position the fruit in the molds so they are adequately spaced, and there is a variety in each loaf mold. Adding variety to each soap mold will ensure that they look as colorful as possible when they come out of the molds. Next, pour the soap base from the previous step into the loaf molds, over the fruit embeds. Fill the loaf molds to cover everything inside of it. If you choose, you can spray the soap with rubbing alcohol.  However, we wanted our soap to have a bubbly look so we chose not to spray this portion.

Sangria is a delicious fruity drink that incorporates a bunch of different fruits. There are many other fruity, non-alcoholic cocktails that you can make too at home. My favorite drink out of this list is the Piña Colada. This tropical drink has a Spanish name that translates to Pineapple and Strained (the strains of coconut). Another refreshing drink in this list is the Bahama Mama. This drink is similar to the sangria in which it incorporates a lot of different fruits. The Bahama Mama uses grapefruit, grenadine, orange juice, and a lot of different fruits. Next time the weather gets really hot, try making one of these drinks and refresh yourself.

Watermelon Bubble Bars Recipe

Watermelon Bubble Bars RecipeWatermelon Bubble Bars Recipe

We love using Natures Garden ingredients to play around with and create new and different recipes to share with you all. Today we are going to be highlighting a bath and body recipe that we recently made. It is our watermelon bubble bars recipe, that we made using quality cosmetic ingredients that are great for the skin. This combination of elements in the bubble bar scoops provide skin moisturizing properties both inside and outside of the bath. This is one of our many recipes that uses the surfactant Sodium Cocoyl Isentionate (SCI) as opposed to Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA). We hope that you will feel the difference and enjoy making these adorable mini watermelon bubble bars.

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden:

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)
Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda
Cream of Tartar
Corn Starch
Poppy Seed Whole
Vitamin E Oil
Macadamia Nut Oil
Vegetable Glycerin
Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil
Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant
Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant
Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant 
Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
Safety Gloves
Natures Garden Apron
Safety Mask
Safety Glasses
Flexible Silicone Mat

Other Ingredients and Equipment You Will Need:

Mixing Bowls
Mixing Spoon
Scale
Ice Cream Scoop

Total Recipe Amounts:

205 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
230 grams Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda
112 grams Cream of Tartar
36 grams Corn Starch
100 grams Vegetable Glycerin
12 grams Macadamia Nut Oil
7 grams Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil
5 grams Vitamin E Oil
2 drops Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant
10 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant
10 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
5 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant

Before starting the watermelon bubble bar recipe, we like to remind you that it is important to clean and sanitize your work station area and all of the materials that you will be using. We always suggest that you wear gloves, an apron, safety glasses, a face mask, and a hair net when you are preparing these recipes. Natures Garden sells each one of these other than the hair net, and they are all linked above.

Weigh Out the Dry IngredientsWeigh Out the Dry Ingredients

First, we will prepare all of our dry ingredients. Get out a scale so that we can accurately measure everything out. You will also need a mixing bowl to combine them all together. The first thing we weighed out was 205 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI). Then, we measured 230 grams of the baking soda, 112 grams of the cream of tartar, and 36 grams of the corn starch. These ingredients should all be added into the same mixing bowl. 

SCI versus SLSA

For this watermelon bubble bar recipe we used Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, as you can tell from the list of ingredients. This is one type of surfactant that is often added to bath and body products such as bubble bars, bath bombs, and shampoo bars. There are a ton of recipes up on the website that use this ingredient. It helps to moisturize the skin, which is very beneficial to those who have dry skin. The properties in SCI are gentle and will leave your skin feeling nice and softened.

Another surfactant that is commonly used in bubble bars, bath bombs, shampoo bars, etc. is Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate. Although this will not leave your skin feeling as soft as products with SCI will, the lather and production of bubbles is much greater with SLSA. Both of these are great to use in these products and both provide great benefits to the skin.

Break Up Any Clumps in the MixtureBreak Up Any Clumps in the Mixture

Getting back into the steps of the recipe, we need to put gloves on if you have not already done so. With the gloves on, use your hands to break up any clumps in the dry powder mixture. The baking soda tends to contribute the most to this clumping. It is important to break any and all of these up in order to avoid having them in the finished product. Once all of the clumps are broken up and gone, go ahead and use your hands to mix the ingredients together seamlessly.

Adding the Liquid IngredientsAdding the Liquid Ingredients

Now, we are going to have to grab a separate mixing bowl. The wet ingredients will need to mixed individually before they can be combined with the dry ones. Using the scale once again, we need to accurately weigh out each of our liquid ingredients. First, we will measure out 100 grams of the vegetable glycerin. Then, we will add to that 12 grams of the macadamia nut oil, and 5 grams of the vitamin E oil. Mix all of them together.

We decided to use macadamia nut oil for its conditioning properties. We wanted these bubble bars to feel good on the skin and condition it, which is why this oil is perfect to use. This is an oil that is nourishing and moisturizing to the skin while avoiding making it feel oily. For this reason, it is often used to make lotion recipes, massage oil recipes, and hair care products such as conditioner. We also commonly use this in some of our cold process soap recipes as well, like our Peppered Poppy Seed and Strawberries and Champagne soaps. 

Incorporate the Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance OilIncorporate the Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil

In the next step, we will weigh out and add the 7 grams of our Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil. The notes in this fragrance oil bring together a combination of pineapples, oranges, and juicy watermelon. Another project that we created using this same fragrance oil is the Sour Watermelon Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe. These include oils that are great to add to skin care products like this one. After you have added the fragrance oil in, mix all of your liquid ingredients together again.

Combine the Liquid Ingredients with the Dry IngredientsCombining the Liquid Ingredients with the Dry Ingredients

In this step, you will need to take the mixing bowl that has the wet ingredients and combine it with the mixing bowl that has the dry ingredients. Add the liquids to the bowl containing the dry ones. Once again, using your hands to mix the ingredients together will work better than using other utensils. Then, you will need to take out two additional mixing bowls. Divide the dough you just formed into three equal portions. Put each one of these parts into separate bowls.

Adding in the Neon Pink ColorantAdding in the Neon Pink Colorant

For the next step, we can set the first bowl aside. We will be keeping this portion of the dough white, so it will not need any colorant added to it. Take the second bowl of dough and add to it 5 drops of the tomato red FUN soap colorant and 10 drops of the neon pink FUN soap colorant. 

Forming the Pink Ball of DoughForming the Pink Ball of Dough

Once it has been added, thoroughly mix in the colorants using your hands. Continue to mix until the dough is completely covered in the pink colorant. If you are unsatisfied with color, you can add in a few more drops. We added enough for it to be a pink shade. However, adding more of the tomato red color will make it look more like a true watermelon. Once you like how it looks, you can form the dough into a ball and roll it with your hands. Set the second bowl aside for a moment.

Adding in the Kelly Green and Neon Green ColorantsAdding in the Kelly Green and Neon Green Colorants

Now, you will need clean gloves. Take the third and final mixing bowl to create the green portion of your bubble bars. You will need to add 10 drops of the neon green FUN soap colorant and 2 drops of the Kelly green FUN soap colorant. 

Forming the Green Ball of DoughForming the Green Ball of Dough

When you have added in the green colorants, mix them thoroughly into the dough just as you did with the pink portion. Use your hands until there is no longer any white dough visible. Once again, if you would like the dough to be a darker shade of green, add more of the Kelly green, since it is the darker of the two green colorants. When you are satisfied with the color, form it into a green ball.

Combine the Three Mixtures TogetherCombine the Three Mixtures Together

Then, you can pack the three mixtures of the bubble bar dough into the same mixing bowl. We will explain the way that we laid it in the bowl. First, place the white portion in the center. Put the pink portion on one side of the white dough, and the green portion on the other side of the white dough. It does not matter which one of them is on the left or right of the white. Use your hands to press down on each of the balls of dough. Press each of them tightly into the bowl. This is going to make it easier to scoop in the next step. 

Scoop Out the Bubble BarsScoop Out the Bubble Bars

Now, we have reached the fun part of forming the cute ice cream scoops! Get your flexible silicone mat out and place it on the counter next to you so that it is ready when you need it. Take out a stainless steel ice cream scoop and use it to scoop out the bubble bar dough. Start on the pink side of the bowl and work your way over to the green dough scooping across the bowl. Having the pink on the top is going to create the look of a watermelon. Make sure that you include all three of the colors in each of the scoops. As you dig them out, place the scoops onto your flexible silicone mat. 

Finishing Your Bubble BarsFinishing Your Bubble Bars

After all of the scoops are on your mat, you can bring out the poppy seeds. Sprinkle the poppy seeds onto these sour watermelon candy bubble bars to top them off. The amount that you choose to use is completely up to you and however you would like them to look. The poppy seeds are meant to resemble the seeds in watermelons. We sprinkled ours onto the pink portion of the bubble bars since that is the part where real watermelon seeds are. After they are topped off, you will need to give them some time to set up. Allow your watermelon bubble bars to sit undisturbed from anywhere between 24 and 48 hours. 

After you have waited long enough and checked that they have hardened up, your watermelon bubble bars will be ready to use! When you are ready to take them into your bath, all you have to do is simply crumble a couple of the scoops under your warm running bath water.

How to Use Kaolin Clay

How to Use Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay

If you have very sensitive skin, and need a recipe that will work with it, then check out these recipes by Nature’s Garden. We will talk about kaolin clay benefits, and different attributes that make up this wonderful clay. There are a lot of different minerals that make up kaolin clay that make it productive in any skin application. There are also a lot of different applications for this clay as it can be used in bath bombs, powders, and soap applications. The application for the clay is going to depend on it’s mineral composition. The best part about this clay is that it’s naturally occurring as well. So, you get the benefits of 100% natural minerals being present in the clay powder. We hope you enjoy learning about and seeing bath and body recipes involving this wonderful substance.

 

What is Kaolin Clay?

Kaolin Clay is a white, soft clay powder that is commonly used for people with sensitive skin. This clay is a type of silicate that was named “Gaoling” by the Chinese, then later adapted as “Kaolin” by the French. This clay is derived from the mineral called Kaolinite which is a soft, white, earthy mineral found from within the ground. In the United States some of the largest deposits of Kaolinite can be found in central Georgia. There’s a town in Georgia called Sandersville that is known as the “Kaolin Capital of the World”. Kaolin clay is commonly used in both cosmetics as well as soaping. This clay has the ability to harden different bath products as well as cleanse the skin.

 

Uses for Kaolin Clay outside of Cosmetics and Soap

While Natures Garden sells kaolin clay for use only in cosmetics, it has benefits in other industries as well. Kaolin Clay can be mixed with water to create a poultice for treating minor wounds. Another interesting use for Kaolin Clay is as a fruit fly repellent. All you need to do is add 2 tablespoons of Kaolin Powder for every 12 ounces of water into a water bottle. Afterwards, go around and spray any areas where you don’t want fruit flies. When Kaolin Clay is made, it’s tested for mineral content afterwards to see if it can be used for cosmetic, medicinal, or industrial purposes. Usually, Kaolin Clay is more commonly used in cosmetics though.

 

How to use Kaolin Clay in Different Cosmetics

Kaolin Clay poses a lot of different benefits when used in cosmetic recipes. For example, in bath bombs, Kaolin Clay is known to be a good color fixative which allows the color to show and not fuse within the bath bomb. It also acts as a hardening agent for bath bombs. When used in any bath fizzes or bath bombs, kaolin clay is a great way to soften the skin once you get out of the bathtub. Kaolin Clay is even used in deodorant recipes. When used in deodorant, this clay may help detoxify the skin underneath as well. You can also take advantage of the natural mineral makeup of this clay and use it in eye shadows, foundations, and blushes. This will allow you to get the true color that you’d desire.

 

How to use Kaolin Clay in Different Soaps

When used in soap, this clay is wonderful for those with sensitive skin. Kaolin Clay is rich in potassium, titanium, and silicon which when wet, will give your soap a smooth, silky, and creamy feel. Kaolin clay is also useful in retaining moisture when applied. The direct result of this is skin that is left moisturized and not so tight when you are done cleaning it. Also, this clay can be used to exfoliate your skin, leaving it smooth and clean.

 

Using Kaolin Clay to Help With Acne

When you use Kaolin Clay in body products, it not only can help some fight acne, but will do so in a smooth way that isn’t painful to your natural skin. This white clay, when used in soaps, is really good at picking up any oils. Some people will use this clay for types of skin conditions. Examples including: acne, skin irritations, skin inflammation, and dry flaky skin.

This fragrance oil uses a complex blend of floral notes all combined with base of musk.

Tea Tree Soap Recipe Using Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay: Tea Tree Soap Recipe

Finally, we will look at the Tea Tree Soap Recipe. This melt and pour soap recipe not only uses kaolin clay, it also uses Natures Garden’s pure tea tree essential oil. In this hemp mp soap making project, we show you how to use the white clay to allow you to swirl melt and pour soap. One half of the soap is scented and simply colored. The clay is added to other half of the soap. By adding the clay to half of the soap, it will make this portion a slightly thicker consistency. This creates a tension barrier, preventing the two colors of soap from mixing together. Instead of blending together, it creates swirls within each bar of soap.

 

Kaolin Clay comes from Kaolinite, which is a naturally occurring mineral. I’m going to discuss the process of how they extract these minerals. Understanding Kaolin Clay uses, also involves understanding where it comes from. This koalin clay article was used as a basis to understand the operations involved in mining this mineral. You can find the largest deposits of Kaolinite in the United States in Georgia. By itself, Kaolinite serves little to no purpose when extracted as a raw material. Before they start drilling for this material, land analysts research the land and make calculations on where the best location would be to find deposits. Afterwards, they drill 200 foot deep holes. They drill around 50-100 holes for every 100 acres to get a reasonable sample. This sample set will allow the miners to understand the quality of the Kaolinite in the area.

Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath SaltsBubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts Recipe

The best time of the year is almost here! Spending time with family and exchanging gifts is always a huge part of the holidays. We at Natures Garden wanted to bring some joy to the holiday season this year and show you some fun recipes that you can create with your family! Our Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts recipe is the perfect Christmas craft to make for yourself, a family member, or a friend. These bath salts smell minty and refreshing while leaving your skin feeling super soft and silky. What could be better than that? Let’s get started on making these Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!

Dead Sea SaltDead Sea Salt

In this recipe, you will be using Natures Garden’s Dead Sea Salt High Minerals Fine Ground salt. Dead Sea Salt is a dry, white crystal. This type of salt is named after the Dead Sea, which is found in Israel. The Dead Sea is made up of 29% salt, compared to a 4% salt content in oceans. It is known both for the health and medicinal benefits it brings, as well as the therapeutic effects and benefits it has. Each of these come from the minerals Dead Sea Salt consists of.

Benefits of Dead Sea Salt

Many properties and minerals that are beneficial to the human body can be found in Dead Sea Salt. These are magnesium, zinc, calcium, bromide, and potassium. Magnesium can help combat aging and stress and can calm the nervous system. Zinc is an anti-inflammatory, which soothes skin and helps reduce itching and any inflammation. Calcium can prevent water retention and increase circulation in the body. Bromide helps to reduce built up muscle retention. Lastly, potassium can provide energy to the body.

These minerals make it possible for Dead Sea Salt to be used in many different cosmetic products: soap bars, salt scrubs, bath bombs, air fresheners, and bath salts, which is what we will be discussing today. It is great for skin care treatment as well, including eczema, acne, psoriasis, and wrinkles. Natures Garden sells many other salts to make products from, including Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, and Hawaiian black salt. Now that you have a better understanding of the type of salt that will be used in this recipe, we can get into more details of the other ingredients involved.

Diamond Clear Melt Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapPour Soap

Another ingredient that we will be working with is the one of our mp soap bases. Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap is made up of 99.5% glycerin and coconut oil that has been purely deodorized and doubly distilled. These ingredients ensure that it is highly moisturizing with superior lathering qualities. All of our soap is gluten free, are not tested on animals, and do not contain any sort of animal fats. This soap is extremely easy to work with because all you have to do is melt it, add fragrance, add color, pour into molds, and take them out once they have cooled.

 

Reindeer Poo Fragrance OilReindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

Our Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil is a scent that is original to Natures Garden.  This is one of our best selling fragrances! Since Christmas time is coming up, this is a great scent to add to your creations to bring in the true feeling of the season. It is a complex note fragrance, which means that there are multiple layers to the scents that it emits. The opposite of complex note fragrances are single note fragrances, such as strawberry. A single note fragrance has only one scent throughout it, with no variation between layers, which is very unlike this one. The top notes of Reindeer Poo are apples and pears. The middle notes you will experience are eucalyptus, pine, and geranium. The base notes of this fragrance include vanilla, cedar wood, and patchouli. Eucalyptus and pine really give off the smell of a Christmas tree and are the most prominent in this oil. When they are all combined, it creates a holiday-filled scentsation.

BUBBLING REINDEER POO BATH SALTS RECIPE

Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Mixing Bowls (3)
Mixing Spoon
Spatula
Microwave
Cake Pan
Wax Paper

Total Recipe Weights:

120 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
186 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate- SCI
744 grams Dead Sea Salt
52 grams Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil
10 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorants
6 drops Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant

Before you start on making this recipe, it is important to make sure you have a clean and sanitized work area. Also wash your hands and sanitize all of your packaging materials. We also suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Preparing the Melt and Pour SoapPreparing the Melt and Pour Soap

Preparing our melt and pour soap is the first thing we are going to do for this recipe. We want to color it brown in order for it to be used as the poo portion of our final product. Use a scale to weigh out 120 grams of the diamond clear melt and pour soap. Then, you are going to melt the soap base in the microwave in 30 second intervals, until it is in a liquid state.  Once it has had enough time to fully melt, add ten drops of the black oxide colorant and six drops of the brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Our soap colorants do not take too much of an application to create the pigment you are looking for. In fact, 1/2 ounce of our liquid soap colorants will cover ten pounds of soap! After it has been added, stir your new mixture to incorporate the colorants fully.

Next, you are going to add six grams of the Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil. Then, once again, mix everything together to blend the fragrance oil. Let’s get into the specific properties of this fragrance!

Pour the Soap Into Your MoldPour the Soap Into Your Mold

Now, we are going to pour the melted soap base, in a thin layer, either onto a pan that is lined with wax paper or into a silicone mold.  We decided to use the four cavities of the silicone 4 loaf soap mold.  Allow the soap enough time to get mostly setup.  You will need to give it time to set up without waiting too long, or it will no longer be warm.

A Variety of Molds

There are so many different molds to choose from at Natures Garden! If you wanted to make this recipe even more fun, you could use something besides the silicone 4 loaf soap mold to let your soap form in, such as embeds. We sell some different molds that can make this recipe even better for the holidays! Some of the options that we have are our Christmas Tree and Bulbs Embed Mold, Small Cross Embed Mold, Ornament Embed Mold, and our Gingerbread Man Mold Market Molds. Using any one of these molds could take these bath salts or other candle and body product recipes you are creating to the next level! We have many other non-holiday molds to choose from as well, you can find all of our soap molds here.

Shaping the MP SoapShaping the Soap

Now, use your hands to rip the molded soap into strips that are approximately ½” x 3”. We would not suggest using a knife to slice the soap because you do not want it to look too perfect or pristine. By ripping it, it looks more natural. After you have ripped your soap into these strips, roll them up and place them between the palms of your hands. Then, roll them between the palms of your hands rapidly to give them the look of natural poo. Keep repeating this process until all of your soap has been used.

Creating the Powdered Snow PortionCreating the Powdered Snow Portion

Finally, we will create the powdered portion of this recipe! First, you will need two bowls.  One will remain white in color, while the other will be colored blue.  To make the powdered portions, start by adding 372 grams of Dead Sea Salt to each bowl. Then, add 23 grams of Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil. Finally, you will need to add 93 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate to each bowl. This is a sodium salt ester or a fatty acid that derives from coconut oil. It creates a wetness, it solubilizes oils, and reduces surface tension. It can also be used to help with the property of foaming, which makes this product helpful.

Add the Blue Colorant to the Bath SaltsAdd the Blue Colorant to the Bath Salts

Next, you are going to add four grams of the Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant.  Use your hands to combine the contents of each bowl separately. Start with the bowl that will remain white in color. Mix each of the bowls until all of the contents are fully mixed and ensure that each of them are free of any clumps.

Now, we will add to our mixture the reindeer poo that we rolled out and formed.  Make sure that you save a few of these pieces for the top of the jars when the bath salts recipe is completed. You will want these for the final look to turn out perfectly!

Finally, we will begin adding our mixture to our jars. This recipe creates enough product to fill four 8 ounce jars. This is a perfect amount of bath salts because you can give three as gifts and keep one for yourself! Begin by scooping a layer of white powder mixture into your first jar. Then, add a layer of blue.  Continue layering until you have filled your jar.  Lastly, place a few of the pieces of poo on top.  Then, move on, filling your remaining jars.

Your homemade bubbling reindeer poo bath salts are now ready for you, friends, and family to use!  When you are ready to use them, simply place a few scoops from the jar under your warm running bath water, it will break apart and create a bubble bath!
