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.

Ingredients Found At Natures Garden:


Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Mixing Bowls (3)
Mixing Spoon
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.

Incorporating the Reindeer Poo Melt and Pour SoapIncorporating the Reindeer Poo Melt and Pour Soap

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!


Finishing the Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!Finishing the Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!

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!

Reindeer Poo CandleMore Fun With Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

If you enjoy making this bath salts recipe, we have a couple more things that you can make using Natures Garden Reindeer Poo fragrance oil! The first is our Reindeer Poo Candle Recipe, which has two layers to it. The first layer is a blue dyed palm wax, while the second is Joy Wax that resembles the white snow. To top it off, we added reindeer poo along with cute little reindeer embeds! This craft can be fun to make either for yourself or it can be given as a gift.

Reindeer Poo Scented Play DoughThe second recipe that you can try out different from the bath salts is our Scented Play Dough Recipe. This could be a great activity to do with families and children around the holidays. It will create five colored and scented play dough balls to play and make crafts with. The colors we used are red, blue, cream, green, and yellow. The scents that we used with fragrance oils are Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin, Jack Frost, Snowman Balls, Mrs. Claus Cookies, and Reindeer Poo. We hope that these give you a better idea of the different and fun ways that this fragrance oil can be used for the holiday season!

10 Ways to Use Vanilla Powder in Cosmetics: Cooking with Vanilla Powder

Did you know vanilla powder is often used when cooking or baking? Both vanilla extract and vanilla powder are great ingredients that you can use for cooking all kinds of scrumptious desserts and bakery items. Although the use of vanilla extract is more much more common, the powdered vanilla powder is just as useful in the kitchen. In fact, vanilla powder is many times preferred for its more intense and true flavor. In fact, it happens to be my personal preference. This more true flavor is due to the fact that the powder is purer. You see, vanilla powder contains only ground vanilla beans. On the other hand, the vanilla extract is diluted some with alcohol.
