Benefits of Using a Facial Mask on your Skin

Using a facial mask on your skin can provide many benefits for the health of your skin. When you apply this substance to your face, it starts acting right away to pull harmful oils from your face. When you do this, the ingredients whether they be clays, enzymes, or charcoals; penetrate deep into your skin over time. You should know what kinds of skin issues you have before picking a face mask that will work for you. For example, if you have acne or harmful bacteria in your skin, then use Activated Charcoal to draw it out of your skin. You could also go the route of using sheet masks for sensitive skin, and will leave your skin feeling smooth.

Benefits of Using Calendula Flowers in your CosmeticsBenefits of Using Calendula Flowers in your Cosmetics

Calendula Flowers have been known to reduce muscle spasms and reduce fever symptoms in most people. When used in cosmetics, these flowers have been known to reduce inflammation and acne. You can also use these flowers in soap making recipes and lotion recipes. If you also have any burns, you can use soap that is made with Calendula to relieve the symptoms of the burn on your skin. A fun fact about Calendula is that it can also naturally color soap as well. So, if you don’t want to always have to stick to using soap colorant, then you can try this alternative out for yourself. So, if in the near future you are ever wanting to make a homemade DIY project that provides a lot of benefits for your body, then try using Calendula for yourself, and see how amazing you feel afterward.

Before you start making this Facial Mask for Acne Recipe, you want to clean and sanitize your work area. When you are making this recipe, it is recommended that you wear protective clothing, gloves, and a hair net. Working with a bunch of powders, it may also be in your best interest to want to wear a face mask . 

Setting Up and Weighing out the Dry IngredientsSetting Up and Weighing out the Dry Ingredients

Grab a medium sized mixing bowl, and set it on the scale. Tare out the weight of the mixing bowl on the scale to zero grams. You want to weigh out the pomegranate fruit, papaya leaf, calendula flowers, and green tea powders. The order that you weigh these powders doesn’t matter.

Mixing the Dry Ingredients TogetherMixing the Dry Ingredients Together

After adding the previous powders, you then want to add 448 grams of the Rhassoul Clay Powder.  After adding the last powder, you want to mix all of the powders around in the bowl until they are evenly dispersed. If you don’t evenly disperse them, you may not get the full effect of the facial mask all around your face. There are two ways you can mix these. First, you could put on some gloves, and move the powders around with your hands until they are fully dispersed among each other. When you do this, it doesn’t hurt to take your fingers and break up any clumps in the powder. Second, you could take a fork or spoon, and sift through the powders. 

Adding and Mixing the Wet Ingredients into the PowderAdding and Mixing the Wet Ingredients into the Powder

After mixing all of the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl, the next step is to add in the wet ingredients. The first wet ingredient to add to the facial mask mixture is the Vitamin E Oil. Vitamin E Oil is a natural oil that can protect your skin against sunburn damage, and can also be used to counteract inflammation. Use the disposable pipette to add the oil into the mixture. You want to fill up the pipette with the oil, then add 48 drops of the vitamin e oil to the dry mixture. Afterward, you want to dispose of the pipette and get a new one. With the new pipette, fill it with tea tree essential oil. You want to add 64 drops of the tea tree essential oil to the mixture. 

Packaging the Dry Ingredients

When the oils are added to the mixture, thoroughly mix the ingredients together. You want to make sure that there are no clumps leftover in the mixture when you are done mixing it. Like before, it may also help to put on gloves, and go through with your hands afterward and break apart any clumps. The mixture should still be a powdery substance when you are done mixing. Now that the powdered portion is finished, scoop the mixture in the bowl into the four ounce jars. Then, you can close the lids on the jars. You should place a lid on each of the jars as you finish filling them. The lids should easily go on. If you notice that you’re trying to force the lid, remove a little bit of the facial mask mixture, and try again.

Packaging the Vegetable Glycerin

Next, you want to prepare seven 1 oz clear bullet bottles. When preparing these bottles, it wouldn’t hurt to put some decent space in between them to avoid knocking one of them over. In each of these bottles, you want to add 24 grams of vegetable glycerin. You can do this by placing each bullet bottle on a scale, and tare it out to zero. Then after taring the bullet bottle, you can fill up a new disposable pipette with vegetable glycerin and add it to the bottle. When all the bottles are properly filled, you want to place a white ribbed lid on each of the bottles. You should tightly secure the lids on the bottles. This will eliminate the possibility of any leaks.

Using the Facial Mask for Acne Recipe

Now that all of the ingredients are completely made, the next step is to use the facial mask. Before using the face mask, make sure to clean up your work area when you are done, as there are a lot of products that were used that could’ve gotten everywhere. To use the facial mask, you want to first get a small mixing bowl. In this small mixing bowl, you want to add one tablespoon of powder, two tablespoons of water, and about 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin. After adding these ingredients in the bowl, mix them well to get a complete consistency. After you are done mixing these ingredients together, the facial mask is ready to use and apply to your face.

A Side Note for this Recipe

As a side note, here at Nature’s Garden we choose to package the powder separately from the Vegetable Glycerin in our facial mask for acne recipe. Since we don’t have to create the mask with water, this will eliminate the need to add a preservative to it. The reason behind this is that microorganisms and bacteria thrive and live in water induced environments. To eliminate this threat when packaging the face masks, we use vegetable glycerin packaged separately instead, so preservatives aren’t needed. You customers can then mix up the facial masks as needed. This efficient solution will allow your customer to interact more with how they want their facial masks. They can add more water if they would like a thinner mask and less water to make a thicker consistency You can make about 8 facial masks from each of the 4 oz jars. 

We hope that you enjoy your facial mask recipe, and all of the benefits that come along with using it. This recipe cuts deep into the skin, and as you can see it uses a lot of different powders. This recipe will absorb a lot of those harmful oils that cause acne on your face. The facial mask will also leave behind smooth skin where it was applied. This face mask will clear the skin on your face and have you looking fresh again.

Other Uses for Tea Tree Essential OilOther Uses for Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree Essential Oil is a natural oil that is used in this facial mask for acne recipe, and there are many other uses for it besides for acne relief. This article called “How Does Tea Tree Oil Help the Skin?” goes in depth about different uses for this natural remedy. Tea Tree Oil is also a great natural oil to use on your hair and nails. If you ever have issues with dry, itchy skin, Tea Tree Oil on it to alleviate the itchiness. It is also known that Tea Tree Oil can be used to expedite the time that it takes wounds to heal. When you use it, make sure to add a drop of Tea Tree Oil to a wound healing ointment, and apply that directly to the cut. Tea Tree Oil can also be used to aid in hair growth.

Herbal Make-Up RecipesHerbal Make-Up Recipes

If you love make-up, this blog is for you! Today we will be introducing to you our eye shadows that Melissa, our team member, has recently created. These homemade eye shadows are made from natural cosmetic clay, powders, and mica pigment. The ingredients that make up the powders used to create these shadows are full of nutrients and contribute many things to our body and health, which makes them even better to use in the cosmetics industry. There are eight different eye shadows we have created that all use a variation of the powders available at Natures Garden. On our website, you can check out each of the ingredients we used to make these, which will all be linked in this blog. You can also check out these herbal make-up recipes in full detail on our site!

Arrowroot Powder

Before we begin teaching about and creating these eye shadows, I wanted to talk about some of the ingredients that are present in every one of these make-up eye shadow recipes. There are a couple of items that are in each of these eye shadows, but this one is very important. That ingredient is arrowroot powder. It derives from St. Vincent and is extracted from tropical tubers. For example, the woody shrub cassava or the arrowroot plant. This powder is can be used both in cooking and in the cosmetic industry. There is no flavor to it and it serves as a thickener in soup, for instance. Arrowroot is white with a silky texture and is used in most deodorants, body powders, some make-up foundations, and eye shadows.

Diamond Dust Mica Pigment and 24K Gold Mica Pigment

Another important element to these eye shadows that is present in all of them are these two mica pigments. One of them is the diamond dust mica pigment and the other is the 24K gold mica pigment. They each add shimmer to whatever product you add it to. We use these in bath and body products as well as these eye shadows. These pigments are safe to use in items made for the lips, eyes, face, and nails. It can even be added to gel wax or glycerin soap to give them a pearly appearance. The diamond dust gives a silver color, while the 24K gold is, unsurprisingly, a gold shimmer.

The Eye Shadow Recipes

Activated Charcoal Eye Shadow
Bee Pollen Eye Shadow
Beet Root Eye Shadow
Black Walnut Eye Shadow
Cocoa Powder Eye Shadow
Hibiscus Eye Shadow
Rose Clay Eye Shadow
Spirulina Eye Shadow

Activated Charcoal EyeshadowActivated Charcoal Eye Shadow Recipe

First, we used activated charcoal powder to create this eyeshadow The other ingredients that are used to create these darker shadows are arrowroot powder, the diamond dust mica pigment, and the 24K gold mica pigment. Activated charcoal powder is the key to creating darkly pigmented products such as cosmetics, soap, face masks, and scrubs. It is a fine black powder that typically comes from hardwoods, coconut shells, or bamboo. By processing and heating the materials from these plants at high temperatures, it will turn into char.

The activated charcoal powder provides consumers with a natural way to color soap and other creations black without turning them into an unwanted gray color. A little of this powder goes a long way, which is why we only used either 1/8 teaspoon or 1/2 teaspoon to make the eye shadows you see here. This recipe will give you six 10 milliliter jars of eye shadows, which are all in different shades and luster.

Bee Pollen EyeshadowBee Pollen Powder Eye Shadow Recipe

In this recipe, you will use arrowroot and bee pollen powders. The bee pollen powder that we sell is rich in many vitamins. In fact, it contains elements that are good for you such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E. It also contains 22 amino acids, 27 mineral salts, carbohydrates, hormones, and over 5000 enzymes. Other benefits include treating acne and being an anti-inflammatory agent and antibiotic, making it useful when it comes to cosmetics.

Vitamin A is useful for maintaining a healthy immune system, aiding in good vision, and promoting development and growth. Vitamin C also helps the immune system, can help heal wounds, maintain bones and teeth, and repair body tissue. The brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system, bones, and teeth are supported and maintained by vitamin D. Lastly, vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect your eyesight and helps fight off infection, making it vital to the immune system. Another way that bee pollen powder can be used is in our Royal Honey Bee Cold Process Soap recipe.

Now that you have learned all of the amazing properties that bee pollen contains, you will be even more excited to create these eye shadows that use it! This recipe provides you with three 10 milliliter jars and with three separate shades.

Beet Root EyeshadowBeet Root Eye Shadow Recipe

This recipe uses the key ingredient in the title of its name: beet root powder. It is a beautiful shade of maroon that comes from the root vegetable, beets. Beets derive from the Mediterranean region and were first cultivated in Italy. It has many enriching nutrients and benefits to the human body. There is vitamin B5, vitamin C, glycine, beta carotene, magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, tryptophan, and tyrosine. Beet root powder helps the liver to metabolize fats, reduces blood pressure, and reduces low density lipoproteins in the blood.

Although it does have the strong scent of beets, by applying fragrance oil or essential oil to other items you make, that can be corrected. Some of our other recipes that use beet root powder are Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss recipe, Berry Bewitching Bath Brew recipe, and our Candy Cane Facial Mask recipe. The powder is extremely versatile in bath and body products both for its properties and for the color it gives these creations. All of this makes this such a great product to work with!

Black Walnut EyeshadowBlack Walnut Eye Shadow Recipe

Now this eye shadow recipe utilizes arrowroot powder and black walnut hulls powder. This powder is used in a variety of industries. From cooking, hair products, cosmetics, medicine, as well as bath and body, this is great for all of it. Massage oils, bath bombs, make up, and face masks are among the common formulas that integrate this powder. Some benefits that it has are treating eczema, acne, psoriasis, and inflamed tissue.

The powder gives the eye shadows their rich color for more dark and smoky make up looks. The recipe will give you three 10 milliliter jars of these eye shadows in a dark brown, a bronzed tan, and a gray tone. A really cool and different type of recipe than most of the ones that we have shared is the Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair on our website. It also uses this black walnut hulls powder, which helps intensify your natural dark brown or black hair.

Cocoa EyeshadowCocoa Powder Eye Shadow Recipe

The main ingredient in this set of eye shadows is our organic cocoa powder, which originates from the Netherlands. It is made from cacao beans, which contain vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Vitamin B1 is involved with preventing complications with the brain, heart, stomach, intestines, muscles, and nervous system. Fats, carbohydrates, and proteins are broken down by vitamin B2. Every part of the body needs vitamin B3 to function properly. It can lower cholesterol, help with brain function, and ease arthritis pain. Another important nutrient, vitamin B5, creates red blood cells, synthesizes cholesterol, and maintains a healthy digestive tract. If you are curious, check back to the Bee Pollen eye shadow to refresh your memory on the benefits that vitamins A, C and E offer. Cacao also contains caffeine, which is beneficial to the skin as well.

This recipe produces eye shadows in three shades, including a mustard yellow, a cocoa brown, and a shimmery light gold color. The cocoa powder gives a natural brown color to your products without having to use colorants or dyes. This makes many great recipes because of the natural color and the nutrients it provides for the skin. Some other ones that use this organic cocoa powder are the Shimmering Bronzing Lotion recipe and Hot Fudge Brownies Cold Process Soap recipe from Natures Garden.

Hibiscus EyeshadowHibiscus Eye Shadow Recipe

Now we are getting more into the pink and rosy shades, which are my favorite! These eye shadows are made by combining Hibiscus Flower Powder with arrowroot powder, diamond dust mica pigment, and 24K gold mica pigment. There are three shades: a deep mauve, a light rosy silver, and a medallion yellow color. You can create countless eye make up looks with these neutral shades. Natures Garden also makes other recipes that contain this are the Firming Facial Mask and the Foaming Hibiscus Scrub.

In addition to the eye shadow recipe, hibiscus flower powder gives natural color to cosmetics. The natural red pigmentation is brought out by infusing the flowers in oil. Other skin care and hair care products use them as well. When added to shampoos and conditioners, the flowers prevent dandruff, thicken hair, and reduce the loss of hair. They are a natural cleanser, which makes them ideal for the skin. In skin care, the hibiscus flowers cleanse, soothe, and soften the skin and body. They are high in amino acids and antioxidants, which helps to prevent acne and has been shown to smooth out wrinkles.

Rose Clay EyeshadowRose Clay Eye Shadow Recipe

Additionally, these Rose Clay eye shadows are beautiful! They are my favorite shades out of all of the ones that were created. The recipe makes three 10 milliliter jars. There is a rose gold shade, a light bronze shade, and a rose tinted caramel shade. They are useful for everyday natural make up looks. Both of the mica pigments bring out a strong shimmer in the rose gold color, which is really pretty. This recipe uses our Rose Clay Powder, which is a shade of pink that is on the lighter side. Our products gain natural colorant from the rose clay.

This is another powder that is super versatile. Some other things it can be used for are mud baths, facial masks, melt and pour soap recipes, cold or hot process soap, bath bombs, and sugar and salt scrubs. It is a natural clay that has kaolinite in it, which is the most abundant clay mineral, and is used in ceramics and pottery. Rose clay can reduce inflammation and skin irritation, draw out toxins within the skin, and gently exfoliate. Sometimes it can be difficult to find products that are good for sensitive skin, but rose clay is one of them. Also, we have used this to make our Sandalwood Bath Bomb recipe and the Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap recipe.

Spirulina Eye ShadowSpirulina Powder Eye Shadow Recipe

Finally, for our last recipe in this blog, we will be talking about our Spirulina eye shadow. It contains Spirulina Powder, which is abundant in vitamin B12, vitamin F, natural beta carotene, and iron. Vitamin B12 prevents tiredness, making DNA, and keeping the nerve and blood cells in the body healthy. Vitamin F retains moisture in the skin, and beta carotene creates healthy skin and boosts the immune system. Finally, iron provides energy and helps us to focus. Additionally, the Seaside Spa Scrub recipe and Castile Hot Process Soap recipe are also made using spirulina powder. However, the eye shadow shades you will get out of this recipe are olive green/brown, darker teal, and a shiny light silver-teal color.

These eye shadow recipes are made with natural powders that contain an abundance of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that are amazing for the skin, hair and nails. There are many benefits to the ingredients in these eye shadows that add a bonus to getting a cute make up look out of them.

14 Ways To Use Arrowroot Powder14 Ways To Use Arrowroot Powder

Arrowroot Powder is one of the most versatile products in the market today. It can be used in anything from cooking to all types of bath products, such as, soap, bath bombs, cosmetics,deodorants, lotions and even in cleaning products.  The list of possibilities are endless. Below, we have 14 ways to use arrowroot powder. We hope you are able to be inspired to create some fun, and even some natural products to add to you line of products or even for just your personal use. Before we get started though, let’s talk a little about where Arrowroot Powder comes from and what exactly Arrowroot is.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: How It's Made14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: How It’s Made

Maranta arundinacea, or more commonly known as arrowroot, dates back to more than 7,000 years ago,  when this powder was first discovered as being used in food by the Caribbean Arawak people. This plant is native to tropical areas such as, western Brazil and Guyana. However, this multi functional root is cultivated in such countries such as, Australia, South Africa and the West Indies.

The powder itself comes from the rhizomes, or the roots, of the plant. The roots are first washed, and then cleaned of the paper-like scales. The scales must be carefully removed before extracting the starch because they impart a disagreeable flavor. Once the scales are completely removed, the roots are washed again, drained and reduced to a pulp by beating them in mortars or grinding them with a wheel rasp. The milky liquid that is obtained is then passed through a coarse cloth. The pure starch, which is insoluble, is allowed to settle at the bottom. The wet starch is then dried in the sun or in a drying house. The result is a starchy powder, ready to be packed in airtight containers and shipped.

Arrowroot Powder can be used in everything from cooking, cosmetics to even medicinal uses. Arrowroot is starchy and makes a wonderful natural, thickening alternative to flour or cornstarch. This powder is fat free, gluten free, and low in salt. You can treat sunburns, blemishes and rashes with arrowroot. When used in cosmetics, bath and body products, it works as a thickening agent. It is also good at absorbing moisture and aids in keeping your skin dry.

 

14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe14 Ways to Use Arrowroot Powder: Pink Lemonade Scrub Recipe

Our first recipe using arrowroot is our Pink Lemonade Scrub. Scrubs are incredibly popular nowadays.  Salt or sugar, pumice or black walnut hulls, scrubs are an easy way to help slough away dead skin cells without being harsh on your skin. This recipe is not only fresh and colorful, it’s full of skin softening ingredients. Sugar is the main ingredient and we all generally have sugar in our house. Cocoa butter, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E and Arrowroot Powder are just a few. The scent inspiration for this scrub was our Raspberry Lemonade fragrance oil that smells true to its name. Tart lemons, raspberries and sugar.

Prior to starting, we recommend wearing an apron, gloves, and a hair net.  Also, clean and sanitize your work station.  In addition, do the same with your mixing utensils and other supplies you will be using.  You will need to prepare a bottle of rubbing alcohol.  Fill your bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a fine mist sprayer on top.  Make sure you have all of your supplies and equipment out and ready to begin.

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Prepare Your Colorant

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Prepare Your ColorantFirst, we will prepare our colorant.  The colorant will be used in the first layer of melt and pour soap.  For this step you will need a small mixing dish, a mixing spoon, your scale, activated charcoal, diamond dust mica pigment, 1/8 teaspoon measuring spoon, and finally your vegetable glycerin.  Now, make sure your scale is set to weight in grams.  In the small mixing bowl, add 1 gram of activated charcoal, 14 grams of vegetable glycerin, and just 1/8 teaspoon of your diamond dust mica pigment.  Lastly, mix them all together until you have a smooth consistency.

Once your clear base is melted, add 26 grams of Blackened Amethyst Fragrance Oil.  Then, add the activated charcoal soap colorant you prepared.  Finally stir the base to completely mix the fragrance and color throughout the melted soap.

 

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Pouring the First Layer of Soap

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Pouring the First Layer of SoapNext, you will need your bottle of rubbing alcohol, your melted soap base, and your small rectangle tray soap mold.  Now, pour the melted soap into the mold.  You will want to pour slowly, avoiding the edges of the mold.  I always find it easier to pour in the center to avoid splashing the edges of the mold.  This is important because it is a layered mp soap.  If you get the charcoal soap along the edges of the mold, it will show up on the edges of the next layer.  Once the soap is setup, you will be able to see the dark soap on the clear layer.  When you are finished pouring your melted soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol.  Rubbing alcohol will release any air bubbles in the soap.  Finally, allow the soap to setup completely before moving to the next step.

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Preparing and Pouring the Second Layer of Soap

The next layer will be a completely clear layer of soap.  However, we chose to add poppy seeds to this layer.  Not only does it look awesome, it also acts as an exfoliant.  So, for this step you will need your mold containing the soap, poppy seeds, clear melt and pour soap, your scale, microwave, and rubbing alcohol.  First, you will need about 7 grams of poppy seeds.  Then, to soap setup in the mold, spread a thin layer of poppy seeds.  You will want to make sure the poppy seeds are evenly dispersed throughout the mold.

Then, weigh out and melt 258 grams of your clear soap base.  Once melted spray you previous, setup layer, with rubbing alcohol.  Your rubbing alcohol not only helps release air bubbles, it will also help the soap adhere to the previous layer.  Once you have sprayed your soap, go ahead and pour the melted clear soap right on top.  Finally, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Then, let the mp soap setup completely before moving on.  You will notice some of your poppy seeds will stay in between the layers of the soap, and some will float and disperse throughout your clear layer.

I would also like to point out one final thing.  You will notice we chose not to scent this soap layer.  When working with a clear soap base, some fragrance oils can cloud the base.  We did not want to risk obstructing the visual effect of the poppy seed.  So, we chose to leave it unscented.  However, our final soap still has a nice strong blackened amethyst aroma.

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Cutting the Soap

Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe Cutting the SoapIn this step you will need your setup soap and a mitre box cutter.  First, flip your mold containing the soap over on a table.  Then, press gently on the bottom of your rectangle soap mold.  Your soap should come out of the mold without any trouble.  Now, notice the lines in your soap?  These lines make cutting the soap a breeze.  Simply use the soap cutter to cut along the lines.  Once your soap is cut, you will have fifteen 2 ounce bars of activated charcoal soap.

Bay Rum FragranceBay Rum Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Ahoy, mateys! Rum is commonly thought of as the drink of choice of pirates. And why wouldn’t it be? They made careers off of rum-running: transporting alcohol overseas to colonies where drinking was prohibited. Pirates often consumed rum as bumbo- a drink made from rum, water, sugar, and nutmeg or cinnamon.

Bay Rum, more specifically, is a product with high-alcohol content made in the Caribbean using rum and the leaves or berries of the appropriately named bay rum tree. It’s often used in aftershave, cologne, and lotions (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, you can use this fragrance oil to make your own). Not as pirate-y, but I already wrote most of this post with pirates in mind, so I’m gonna leave it as is. And surely, pirates had to shave their faces, too? (Unless their pirate name had the word “beard” in it.) Why not with bay rum-scented products?

Balsam FragranceBalsam Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Balsam fir trees, native to northern North America, are evergreen trees that thrive in cooler environments. You may know them better as… CHRISTMAS TREES. That’s right, balsam fir trees are your seasonal superhero’s secret identity. It takes about a decade for these trees to reach ideal Christmas tree height- 6 or 7 feet- but they can live to be up to 200 years old and grow up to 60 feet in height. Can you imagine how many presents would fit under that tree?!

What Does Balsam Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fresh pine balsam aroma is great for Christmas time, or all year round. Use by itself, or for mixing creative new scents for your line.

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam Fragrance Oil?

They design delightful decorative candles! Balsam Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring suggestion for candles made with this wonderful pine scent are to use 4 drops green plus a little black liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of green color block into your melted wax. Black candle colorant only comes in liquid candle dye. Please remember that our liquid candle dyes are VERY CONCENTRATED and as someone who likes to mix colors for painting and various craft applications, let me tell you that you only need a tiny amount of black color to make something darker. Itty bitty tiny little bit of black. You can always add more, but I recommend using the tip of a toothpick, dipping it in your dye, and then dipping it in your wax. Also- never use crayons to color your candles; it’ll clog the wick.

They scent rooms without using wax! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fresh fir fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%. It came across nice and strong in aroma beads. You could also modify our Glamour Aroma Bead Air Freshener Recipe, use Balsam Fragrance Oil instead of I’m Too Sexy Fragrance Oil and use Christmas-tree-shaped (or any Christmas shape your heart desires) cookie cutters to make cute little Christmas ornaments! Remember, though, that once you use baking tools to make a recipe with fragrance oils, do not use them again in cooking applications. Even minute residue from your recipe could make you sick if you eat it. Set your fragrance fun equipment aside from you cooking equipment; better safe than sorry!

They also invent amazing bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this simply spectacular scent in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 3.5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this amazing aroma performed perfectly in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and very, very strong scent retention. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0% so it is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products. Our coloring suggestions are to use green and black soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. (Don’t forget what I said above about using black in a color mix!) We’ve also got some natural soap colorants that you’re welcome to try! We’ve got a handful of natural green soap colorants, and for black: activated charcoal. Be sure to read the pages on the powders- some soapmaking processes may affect the intended color of your soap. (You can also read-up on the nutrients and other benefits of these natural colorants!)
