First, our Hazelnut Coffee Fragrance Oil is strong coffee scent that is great in both bath and body products and candles. It is the aroma of Arabica coffee beans that are blended with both nutty hazel nuts and creamy vanilla at its base. Not only is this coffee scent fabulous on its own, it is also amazing when mixed with other scents.  I actually accidentally put one of these melts in my burner that already had a Pink Sugar melt in it.  I have to say this is now my go to fragrance for my home.

So, how does Hazelnut Coffee Fragrance Oil do in cold process soap? Well, there is no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. It also had a good scent retention.

8 Argan Oil Recipes8 Argan Oil Recipes

I don’t know about you but, argan oil is one of my favorite carrier oils to use in my bath and body recipes.  When used in soap, argan oil gives the bars a nice rich lather that I absolutely adore.  When used in lotion, it sinks in quickly while still moisturizing my skin.  It leaves it feeling nice and soft.  Many love argan oil in their hair care recipes as well.  In fact, since it is an ultra light oil it is perfect for those with oily hair and those that have oily skin.

In Europe, argan oil is often called “liquid gold”.  This is because of its wonderful skin- loving properties.  These are properties that come from the abundance of nutrients that are found in argan oil.  The skin loving argan oil is made by pressing argan kernels.  Argan kernels are the pits found inside a fruit grown on Argania spinosa trees in Morocco.  So, let’s look at 8 argan oil recipes from Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies.  Perhaps you will find a recipe that you can add to your bath and body line.  Whether you make scrubs, body creams, or handcrafted soap, you are sure to find something you love.

8 Argan Oil Recipes: Green Tea Scrub RecipeGreen Tea Scrub Recipe

First, argan oil is wonderful in handmade scrub recipes.  This particular scrub recipe uses green tea.  The green tea is added right into the scrub.  So, not only does the green tea scrub recipe have the antioxidant benefits of green tea it also has the benefits of argan oil.  Finally, it is the aroma of the wonderful Chubba Dubba Weight Loss Fragrance Oil.  Since this citrus fragrance oil also has notes of green tea, we thought it would be the perfect scent to complement this green tea sugar scrub recipe.  This original fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the blend of citrus notes of Sicilian orange, lemongrass, and lemon slices.  Followed by notes of jasmine, green tea, and Tahitian vanilla.

Cappuccino Coffee Cold Process Soap Recipe8 Argan Oil Recipes: Cappuccino Coffee Cold Process Soap Recipe

Now, this one is for all the coffee lovers out there as well as argan oil lovers.  For the coffee addicts like me, this cappuccino coffee cold process soap recipe uses real coffee.  Are you wondering how the coffee is added to this soap recipe?  Well, a portion of the water used to create the lye solution is replaced with coffee.  In addition, there are coffee grounds incorporated into the soap batter to give the soap exfoliation properties.  Finally, it’s topped with a dollop of “whipped cream” and finished off with whole coffee beans.  It is scented with the sweet and creamy Cappuccino Fragrance Oil.  Natures Garden’s Cappuccino Fragrance Oil is the strong and rich aroma of freshly brewed coffee with heavy cream and sweet sugar.  This is hands down my absolute favorite cold process soap recipe.

Orange Swirled CP Soap Recipe8 Argan Oil Recipes: Orange Swirled CP Soap Recipe

Next, the Orange Swirled CP Soap Recipe was inspired with an orange creamsickle fudge recipe from Inside Brew Crew Life.  This is a swirled soap recipe with orange slice embeds to top it off.  In addition, it is scented with the powerful Blood Orange Fragrance Oil.  This tangy orange scent smells AMAZING!  In addition, the scent holds up very well in cold process soap.  The soap itself has a wonderful, rich lathering property.  So, not only does it smell and look fabulous it is also a great bar of soap.  Finally, the cold process soap is topped off with a melt and pour soap embed.  This orange slice is made from mp soap and also coated with sugar to give a portion of the soap exfoliation properties.

 

Sugar Cookie Whipped Body Butter Recipe8 Argan Oil Recipes: Sugar Cookie Whipped Body Butter Recipe

The Sugar Cookie Whipped Body Butter Recipe is another great recipe that uses argan oil.  This is a body butter recipe that is perfect for dry winter skin.  Not only does it use argan oil, but it also uses moisturizing cocoa butter and shea butter.  We could all use a little extra moisture this time of year.  Not only does it feel amazing on the skin, but it also smells amazing.  This body butter smells of the aroma of Sugar Cookies Fragrance Oil.  This scent smells just like freshly baked cookies right from the oven.  So, create the aroma without the calories and use a body butter instead!

8 Argan Oil Recipes: Argan Soap RecipeArgan Soap Recipe

Who doesn’t love cold process soap?  Creating handmade cp soap can be both an artistic statement and great for your body.  This argan soap recipe will be just that.  It is a beautifully swirled cp soap recipe that uses Kulu Bay Fragrance Oil.  The colors are a perfect representation of both the crisp water and warm sandy shores.  Kulu Bay scent is both invigorating and crisp.  It is also a Natures Garden Original fragrance oil.  It definitely allowed us to create a cool bar of soap that packs that rich lather from the argan oil.  The argan oil cold process soap was created using an in the pot swirl technique.  You will need to move quickly when making this soap recipe.  However, the results are totally worth the extra effort.

Sour Watermelon Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe8 Argan Oil Recipes: Sour Watermelon Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe

So, we talked about the green tea sugar scrub, now let’s talk about a solid sugar scrub.  The Sour Watermelon Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe is a solid sugar scrub that has become very popular with our clients.  Not only will this scrub recipe exfoliate your skin, but it also has melt and pour soap added.  This solid scrub is packaged in a clamshell container.  So, once created, you simply place a label right on the clamshell container.  Each cube is the perfect size for a single use sugar scrub.  This solid scrub uses the fruity Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil.  It smells just like the sweet watermelon candy.  Now, we know there is the addition of sugar in most scrubs, right?  This solid scrub is not only unique because it is solid it also includes poppy seeds for even more exfoliation.

After a few weeks, the veins have been known to shrink due to calendula. It has also been known to help with acne problems and can help prevent dermatitis.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe8 Argan Oil Recipes: Aloe Body Cream Recipe

Finally, we have this aloe body cream recipe that contains argan oil.  Out of all of the body cream recipes I have created, this is my favorite.  I believe this is because of the added argan oil as well as the infusion of aloe powder.  This body cream is the perfect way to help heal your skin.  In addition, this aloe body cream uses Orchid Rain Fragrance Oil.  This spa like aroma is the one of a kind combination of fresh orchids, peony flowers, water lily, watercress, aloe vera, and crisp bamboo.  This aloe lotion recipe sinks into your skin perfectly.  Aloe is also high in antioxidants, vitamin C, and other minerals which allow the skin to heal faster.  As many of you know, aloe is often used on sunburned, or inflamed skin.  This is in part because aloe vera powder contains salicylates.  Salicylates are known to help relieve pain.

Other Ways to Use Argan Oil

Now, a couple of other ways to use argan oil that we haven’t talked about.  First, is in your handcrafted hair care recipes.  Argan oil is perfect for those with oily hair.  Since it is a lighter oil it will sink right into the hair follicle without leaving behind more excess oil.  In addition, since it is able to penetrate deep into the hair it will help to repair any damage. So, you can get the right level of moisture and shine exactly where you need it.  It is also great for your cuticles.  With clean, polish free nails, a drop of argan oil rubbed into your nails and cuticles will help moisturize and refresh your cuticle beds.

Learn a little bit more about argan oil and its benefits in your handcrafted bath and body recipes here.  While Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies carries argan oil for soap and cosmetics use only, there are many other ways food grade argan oil can be used.  For example, it can also be used when cooking.  In fact, argan oil is considered a staple food pantry item in Morocco.  While it is often heard to be used in cosmetic recipes like hair care products and skin care products in the United States, in Morocco, it is so much more.  Read more about using food grade argan oil in your food recipes at the Food Republic’s website.

What are the ingredients for soap making?What are the ingredients for soap making?

Here at Natures Garden, we are often asked, “What are the ingredients for soap making?”.  We know it can be overwhelming at first.  Whether you have never made soap before or transitioning from creating melt and pour soap to taking on cold process soap.  Anything new can be a challenge at first and we are here to help you along the way.  Below, we will go through what ingredients and supplies are needed for each type of soap

What are the ingredients for soap making?: Melt and Pour Soap

First, we will talk about melt and pour soap.  This is a basic soap making method.  When using melt and pour soap, the saponification process is already done for you.  Natures Garden carries two pound slabs in several varieties.  Each slab is easy to cut and easy to use.

Melt and Pour Soap: Types of Melt and Pour Soap Bases

Goat’s Milk
Yogurt
Cocoa Butter
Oatmeal
Soya Milk
Shea Butter
Hemp Oil
Honey
Mango
Diamond Clear
SLS Free Clear Glycerin

Melt and Pour Soap: Melting the Soap

So, melt and pour soap, or mp soap will first need to be cut.  We cut the soap into small pieces prior to adding it to a bowl and melting it.  This will allow the soap to melt evenly.  Melt and pour soap can be melted in a microwave oven or in a double boiler.  So, you will need to either have a microwave or a double boiler to make melt and pour soap.  You will also need a cutting board, knife, and at least one mixing bowl.  Once melted, it is ready to be scented and colored.

Melt and Pour Soap: Adding Color

While you can simply melt the soap and pour it into a mold, many choose to add color.  There are a few ways you can color your handmade soap.  Which colorant you choose is a personal choice.  Once your soap is melted, you simply add the color and stir.  Read below for more information on a couple of the types of colorants that you can use.

Adding Color: FUN Soap Colorants

First, Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants can be used.  These colorants are pigments dispersed in vegetable glycerin.  These colorants will give you a nice vibrant color in both clear soap bases and white soap bases.

Adding Color: Da Bomb Soap Dyes

Next, we will take a closer look at the Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  These handmade soap dyes are water based.  These soap colorants work wonderfully in melt and pour soap.  In a white base, they will give you a nice pastel-like color.  However, in a clear base, they are true to color and very bright.

Melt and Pour Soap: Scenting the Soap

You have a couple of options when scenting your soap.  The first choice is whether or not to scent your soap.  You can leave it unscented if you would like.  Although, you can also add a wonderful aroma to the soap.  This aroma can either come in the form of body safe fragrance oil or body safe essential oil.  Either way, you choose to go, the scent simply can be added to the melted soap and mixed right in.  You will find more details on scenting options below.

Scenting the Soap: Essential Oils

Essential oils are natural oils that are plant based.  Natures Garden carries pure essential oils that pure and unadulterated.  They are not diluted in any way.  This option is a perfect addition to your handmade soaps.  While essential oils will be single note scents, you can always create your own blend by mixing them together.  This will make the scent a little more complex.

Melt and Pour Soap: Choosing a mold

Once you have melted, scented and colored your soap, you will simply need to pour it into the mold and allow it to setup.  It is just that simple.  Let’s look at some of your mold options in a little more detail.

Choosing a Mold: Embed Molds

Embed molds will be smaller molds just like the molds that you would use when making chocolate candies.  They are the perfect size for creating guest soaps.  They are also the perfect size to use for embeds or even to top a soap loaf.

Choosing a Mold: Silicone Molds

Silicone molds are really easy to work with.  Since they are super flexible, removing the soap from the mold is a breeze.  They are durable and withstand high heat.

Choosing a Mold: Mold Market Molds

Natures Garden also carries Mold Market Molds.  These molds are made of a heavy duty plastic.  So, they will hold up pretty well.  They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and will help you create some unique handmade soap.

Melt and Pour Soap: Additional Options

When it comes to melt and pour soap, we have technically answered the question, “What are the ingredients for soap making?”.  However, there are a few additional options that you may like to know about.

First, let’s talk about rubbing alcohol.  This can be a melt and pour soap maker’s best friend.  Rubbing alcohol can be sprayed on melt and pour soap to release air bubbles once it is poured into the mold.  It can also be sprayed in between layers of soap to help them adhere to each other.

Next, herbs and clays can be added to soap.  These can be powdered or cut.  While herbs will oxidize over time, each herb will bring a different benefit to your soap.  The powdered herbs can be mixed with vegetable glycerin before being added to your soap.  Many will often use the powdered herbs or clays not only for the benefits of the powder but also as a natural colorant.  The cut herbs are often used not only for the benefits the herbs possess, but also for exfoliation or to add decorative touches.

What are the ingredients for soap making?: Cold Process Soap

Cold process soap is a method in which you are starting completely from scratch.  If you are new to making soap from scratch, you will want to read our soap making safety class.  This will walk you through the basics, as well as safety precautions.   You will also want to read over our beginner’s soap making class, Cold Process Soap Class 101.  You always want to wear safety gear and have vinegar close by when making soap from scratch.  So, now that you have read about soap making safety and read our soap making 101 class, let’s look at the ingredients and supplies needed.

Cold Process Soap: Supplies

While there are several ingredients needed for cold process soap making, you will also need supplies and safety gear.  So, below, is a list of supplies you will need for cold process soap making.  However, you want these supplies to be dedicated only to soap making.  You never want to use any of these supplies to come into contact with your food once they have been used for soap making.

Safety Gloves
Plastic Safety Goggles
Digital Scale
Stick Blender
Stainless Steel Stock Pot or Bowl
Small container or bowl to mix colorants
Long handled plastic spoon or spatula
Mixing bowls (dishwasher safe so you know it withstands heat)
A kitchen thermometer
Freezer Paper (used to line molds and protect your work surface)
Paper towels (to clean up small spills)
Bottle of Vinegar (used in case of lye or raw soap coming in contact with skin)
Soap Mold

Cold Process Soap: Ingredients

Next, let’s talk about the actual ingredients used for cold process soap making.  Cold process soap is created using lye, water, and a combination of oils.  However, it really isn’t as simple as throwing it all together and hoping for the best.  First, you will prepare a lye solution.  Separately, you will prepare your oils.  Then, wait for them to come to the correct temperature before combining them.  Finally, you will begin pouring the batter into a mold.  Once it has setup up, after 24-48 hours, it can be removed from the mold.  It is then allowed to cure before using. Let’s look a little closer at each of these below, as each phase has to be done in a certain manner.

Ingredients: Lye Solution

In order to create a lye solution, there are two ingredients you will need.  You will need distilled water and lye.  Lye is also known as sodium hydroxide.  The water is first weighed out.  Then, the weighed our lye is added to the water.  It is important that the water is never added to the lye.  You always want to add the lye to the water.  If you do it the other way around, it can create a volcanic effect.  The lye is added slowly, stirring as it is added.  Then, the lye solution is set aside so that it can cool.

Ingredients: Soaping Oils

Next, you will need soaping oils.  However, the combination of oils you use is extremely important.  Each oil will saponify a certain amount of lye.  If you use the wrong combination of oils, you could end up with a lye heavy bar of soap.  So, before creating your soap and choosing your oils, you will need to determine your recipe.  You can use one of Natures Garden’s soap making recipes, or create your own.  However, if you choose to create your own, make sure you run the recipe through a soap calculator to make sure that the recipe will work.  We recommend using soapcalc.  You should know that some oils will create a harder bar, others softer.  In addition, some oils will slow trace, others will speed up trace.

Once you choose and weigh out your oils, you melt them and allow them to cool a bit.  You can melt the oils using a double boiler.  We recommend allowing both your lye solution and soap oils to come to around 100 degrees Fahrenheit before combining them.

Ingredients: Scenting the Soap

You can also choose to scent your soap with either a body safe fragrance oils or essential oil.  However, the scent you choose can affect your soap batter.  So, we have created videos to show you exactly how each of Natures Garden’s fragrance oils will perform in cold process soap.  In addition, you can find our most popular cp soap scents here.  You can also use essential oils in your soap.

Ingredients: Coloring the Soap

When it comes to coloring your soap, we recommend using the FUN Soap Colorants.  These colorants will come through beautifully in cold process soap.  We have also created videos showing you the range of shades you can get with the FUN Soap Colorants.  While we talked about the Da Bomb Soap Dyes for melt and pour soap, we don’t recommend them for cp soap.  While, yes, they are safe to use in any type of soap, they will morph, or change color during the saponification process.  During saponification, the cp soap batter reaches high temperatures and the Da Bomb Dyes will not stay true to color.

Ingredients: Choosing a Mold

You have a few options when it comes to a soap mold.  I like silicone molds.  They are easy to work with and hold up extremely well to the high temperatures of the saponification process.  Also, the soap comes out of the molds very easily.  However, you can also use a wooden mold.  In addition, some heavier plastic molds will work.  Although this isn’t true of all plastic molds, they must be able to withstand the high temperatures.

What are the ingredients for soap making?: Hot Process Soap

The last method we will talk about is hot process soap, also known as hp soap.  This method is also done from scratch.  The same safety precautions taken when making cold process soap should be taken when creating hp soap.  So, make sure you read both the cold process 101 class and the safety precautions I linked to above in the cold process section.

So, what is the difference?  Hot process soap can be created using a crockpot.  Of course, this would need to be a crockpot used only for soapmaking, not food once it used for soap.  Crockpot soap will not have as long of a cure time as cold process soap.  This is because the heat from the crockpot speeds up the saponification process.  However, the same recipes, fragrance oils, molds, and colorants can be used.

What are the ingredients for soap making?:  Additional Ingredients

There are a few ingredients that can be used in any type of soap.  First, Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  This ingredient will lessen the discoloration that can be caused by vanillin that is in some fragrance oils.  Sodium lactate is often used in various soap making methods as well.  It is a natural moisturizer that will help harden the soap.  Sodium lactate is used in both cold process and hot process soap.  We also talked earlier about herbs and clay in melt and pour soap.  They can also be used when making soap from scratch.

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free ChristmasOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free Christmas

Most of us in today’s world, have the idea that Christmas has to be picture perfect. We watch the movies on the Hallmark Channel and expect our Christmas to be just like on TV.

However, we don’t live our lives scripted. It’s always important to remember that the Christmas tree doesn’t have to look like Martha Stewart decorated it. Our Christmas cookies do not need to look like they came straight out of Bon Appetit magazine. Christmas is a beautiful time to simply spend with loved ones. Those will be the memories that your children can cherish and remember when they grow older. It’s not about how perfect the ornaments were hung on the tree. It’s about the memory you have of each ornament that you hang on those branches. It isn’t about how perfectly edged the icing was on the cookies. It’s about how awesome those cookies tasted no matter how much icing Junior glopped onto the snowman shaped cookie.

Enjoy your holidays! Take some shortcuts when it comes to having friends or family over. It’s okay to have something that’s not made from scratch! Homemade gifts don’t have to say you don’t have the funds to buy elaborate gifts. If you create things for certain people in mind, then you have given something to somebody that says, “I took my time and love to make you something I knew you would enjoy.” That type of Christmas is perfect in every way. Follow this link to read up on how to have a stress free Christmas before you start running in a million directions!

 

 

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is our Candy Cane Candle Recipe. This is truly a fun candle to have on your tabletop during the Christmas season. This is a simple candle to create. We used our awesome Joy Wax. Joy Wax is a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is easy to work with, even if you’ve never made candles before. Our Joy Wax has a wonderful hot and cold throw. It has a nice creamy finish and sets up beautifully in your containers. The candy cane candle is layered in pink, red and white with a fluffy, whipped wax topping! Yes, you can create fluffy whipped toppings with this wax. To complete the “candy” theme of the candle, we placed two swirled candy embeds made from our Pillar of Bliss. Pillar of Bliss is also a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is perfect for creating embeds or wax melts. It hardens up nicely to allow for easy release from molds.

We have scented the candle in our Candy Cane fragrance oil. This scented oil is a yummy blend of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, strawberries and vanilla. This fragrance is a must for any type of Christmas projects you have in mind!

This face mask has some wonderful skin therapy ingredients such as Kaolin Clay, Rose Clay, Beet Root and Hibiscus Flower Powder. We also used some Peppermint Essential Oil and Vanilla Powder for fragrance. It is a yummy smelling combination! Your skin will be glowing and refreshed after just one use! While we did layer it to have the look of a candy cane, the powders and clays will combine once you start using it, however, it will still smell divine. Just like a stick of peppermint candy!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath CookieOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath Cookie

You just have to have cookies at Christmas time! It’s a necessary thing. So how about some cookies at bath time? Our Christmas Bath Cookies look and smell yummy enough to eat, and are perfect to entice little ones to take a bath! These bath cookies are very similar to bath bombs. The fizz and bubble and will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good! We have used cocoa butter, mango butter, kaolin clay powder, and baking soda to name just a few of the ingredients. Your skin is going to feel amazing after your bath! We chose our Christmas Cookies fragrance oil that smells exactly like a freshly baked, buttery Christmas Cookie! Of course, cookies need frosting, right? Our “frosting” is our whipped soap that we used some of our FUN Soap colorant. With some Christmas colored sprinkles to top it off, your bath cookies are complete!

For the confetti part, we used some melt and pour with added vegetable glycerin. This helps make the soap more pliable allowing you to easily cut the colored part of the soap into little squares to resemble the confetti. For the pretty whipped topping, we used our Whipped Soap base and sprinkled some more confetti soaps on top. Our fragrance of choice is our Fruitcake Fragrance Oil. This scent smells of candied fruit, cake, sugar and vanilla! Mmmmm! This recipe makes one 4 pound loaf and then can be sliced up and wrapped for gift giving!

I know one of my favorite things to have is a fire in my fireplace. Not just at Christmas time, but all winter long! Getting a fire started can be intimidating. Most people will use a fire starter log, but they can get expensive if you have a lot of fires during the winter season. Create some of our Christmas Wreath Fire Starters and you will be happy you did. This recipe will make 11 cupcake size fire starters and the best thing about these? They are scented! Fire starter logs won’t give you that! We made these starters using Pillar of Bliss and our Christmas Wreath Type fragrance oil.
