Handmade Lotion RecipesHandmade Lotion Recipes

In today’s world, most people like to make their own soaps, bath and body products and even cosmetics. Generally, creating those things are not hard at all. Not only do you know the ingredients that will go in your product, but you can make the product to fit your needs or the needs of your customers or loved ones. Many people nowadays have skin issues that require skin-sensitive ingredients. That is another reason why many people turn to handmade goods. And like we stated before, it isn’t hard to do. Take a look through some of Nature’s Garden handmade lotion recipes. You will see how really simply and easy it is to make lotion. Also, with only a few ingredients, you can make a perfectly beautiful lotion that could rival the most expensive store brands out there in the market!

 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Some Key Ingredients

Before we get started on our recipes, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the key ingredients that you need to make lotion with. Really you can make a lotion with just shea butter and coconut oil whipped together. However, while those things will soften and hydrate your skin, they can separate while sitting when water is added. Another thing, they may not absorb into your skin very well, leaving you feeling greasy and sticky. The following components that we will discuss are key to getting a beautiful emulsified lotion that will not leave your skin feeling tacky and absorb beautifully.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 EmulsifierHandmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 Emulsifier

Our first ingredient is Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, or BTMS 25 Emulsifier is a natural, conditioning emulsifier that can be used in hair and skin care. BTMS is naturally derived from Colza oil. Colza oil is a non-drying oil that is obtained from seeds of the rapeseed plant. It isn’t truly rapeseed oil, but a derivative of it. BTMS can be used in creams and lotions to provide a soft, powdery feel to the skin and is very gentle on the skin and hair.

Handmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and SilkyHandmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and Silky

Next ingredient is our two other emulsifying waxes. We have Emulsifying Wax- Traditional and Silky Emulsifying Wax. While these waxes are not 100 percent natural, they are partial plant based and give wonderful structure to any type of lotion, cream, shampoo or conditioner. Both traditional and silky are self-emulsifying, low odor, highly stable, and highly compatible. Low concentrations of these waxes will improve the consistency and stability of emulsions. Which one do you choose for your product? Which ever you want! So, what exactly is the difference? The only difference is silky will give your lotion a lovely, silky-soft feel to you skin long after the lotion or cream has absorbed.  They can be used interchangeably.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen PreservativeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen Preservative

Preservatives are essential to cosmetic formulations because they kill germs that can make you and your customers very sick. Optiphen is a liquid, paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservative that provides broad spectrum preservation against bacteria, yeast and mold, the presence of caprylyl glycol. It also imparts an exceptional feel to the finished formulation which makes it useful in creams, sunscreens, lotions, cosmetics, body washes and shampoo recipes. This is a definite must have in any of your water based bath and body products that are created from scratch.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Stearic Acid and Sodium Lactate

Stearic Acid is a plant based ingredient that is widely used in bath and body products, soaps and even in candles. For bath and body products, it is a wonderful addition to thicken up your product. In soaps, it is used to harden your bars of soap and to make them last longer. When used in candles, it also helps harden the wax and is perfect for making pillar candles or any type of mold candle. Another option is sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is a natural moisturizer, humectant, and pH regulator. It is used in handmade soaps, lotions, shampoo, and other bath and body products.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Distilled Water

Yes, distilled water is an important ingredient to any of your lotions. You will see in any of our lotion recipes, that we ask you to heat your distilled water up to a specific ingredient and hold it there for 20 minutes. This is to ensure that you have destroyed any bacteria that may have been lingering around in the water.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: The Phases

Also you will notice that each recipe is done in phases. You have your Water Phase, which is where you are heating your water up. The Oil Phase. This is where you will heat and melt any of your butters and oils and waxes to a specific temperature. Next will be the Mixing Phase. Your will then mix together your water and butter and oils with a stick blender to emulsify. Lastly, you have your Cool Down Phase where you allow the lotion mixture to cool to a specific temperature before adding your fragrance oil and Optiphen. Then, you will package up your lotion and label if desired and you are ready to gift everybody you love with some handmade love! Now, let’s talk about our recipes!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Cocoa Dream Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Cocoa Dream Cream Recipe

Our first lotion is our Cocoa Dream Cream!   This is a thick, luscious cream that smells heavenly with our Butter Brickle fragrance oil. A soft, buttery vanilla fragrance that leave you smelling sweet! Sweet almond oil, and cocoa butter will give your skin a reason to be happy! It absorbs beautifully and leaves you feeling soft!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe

Our Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion is a beautiful lotion for any skin! Created with infused waters made from hibiscus flower powder and rosehips flower powder, your skin will thank you for the extra attention. Hibiscus is an herb know for being high in antioxidants and amino acids, and also contain oligopeptides that have been shown to have wrinkle-smoothing properties. Rosehips contain high levels of vitamin C, in addition to vitamins E, A, and D. Rosehips are used in skincare for its high level of antioxidants and anti-aging properties. The hibiscus/rosehip infusion will add a lovely natural pink color to your lotion. For the fragrance we chose our Peach Magnolia Raspberry fragrance oil. This scent smells of juicy raspberries and peaches with a light floral background.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Frappe Mocha Body Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Frappe Mocha Body Cream Recipe

Our Frappe Mocha Body Cream is perfect for those with a coffee addiction! This cream is made with cocoa butter and sweet almond Oil. Both are perfect for making your skin feel soft and silky. As for the water part, however, we created it using a distilled coffee brew. This lotion is not only made with coffee, but the steeped coffee water truly helps punch up the coffee fragrance.

This body cream also comes in a kit size if you are looking for a Christmas gift to give to somebody special!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream Recipe

This cream recipe is a favorite of mine. Natural Face Cream is made with an infusion of calendula flowers.  Calendula is believed to reduce inflammation, reduce acne, and promote healthy skin, which makes this a perfect addition to a night cream. Also, we have included Avocado Oil and Grapeseed Oil. Grapeseed oil does not clog pores, absorbs easily into the skin, does not leave a greasy feel to the skin, and provides the skin with anti inflammatory properties.  It is high in linoleic acid; providing mosturizing effects to the skin. Avocado Oil is a rich, moisturizing oil that is perfect for those with sensitive skin. This lotion is also available in a kit.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion Recipe

Back in the 1970s there was a lotion my grandmother used a lot. It was called Rose Milk lotion and our Rose Lotion recipe truly reminds me of her when I use it. We infused our distilled water with our red Rose Buds & Petals. Rose water is the perfect addition to any skin-care regime. Its use dates back to days of Cleopatra and has many incredible benefits to its use. Rose water is perfect for any type of skin. It has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory and has a load of antioxidants in it. We also used cocoa butter, fractionated coconut oil and meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil is a wonderful, light oil that absorbs easily into the skin, leaving you feeling soft and not greasy! We chose our Fresh Cut Roses fragrance oil to scent this beautiful lotion.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar Recipe

Solid Lotion Bar is a quick and simple lotion that is perfect for those who like to hydrate their skin on the go! Made with shea butter, beeswax and jojoba oil, you have a lotion that absorbs quickly, seals in the moisture and keeps the winter dry skin at bay! This lotion is perfect for gym bags, purses, backpacks. No need to worry about loose caps and possible leakage with this lotion! We scented this lotion bar with our Beautiful Babe fragrance oil. If you are familiar with Estee Lauder’s Beautiful perfume, then you know how good this lotion will smell!  This fragrance is a delicate rose, jasmine and carnations with undertones of sweet melon and plum!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion Recipe

Even though it says Wine Lotion, we did not use actual wine in the recipe. However, we did use our Resveratrol Extract Powder. Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in in the skin of red grapes. This powder is similar in the same properties of red wine, meaning it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and is used in products that fight acne. Also, Resveratrol is used in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cosmetic products. It will provide anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling.

We also included cocoa butter, grapeseed oil and Jojoba Oil. Both of these oils are wonderful for the skin! Grapeseed oil is light and non-greasy feeling on the skin.  Jojoba oil is considered a “liquid wax” and it will lock in the moisture and keeps your skin hydrated. We chose our Shiraz fragrance oil to help round out our “wine theme”. This is a beautiful, light fruity but robust red wine scent! A must try for wine lovers! 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Chamomile Lotion Recipe

Our last recipe for today is our Chamomile Lotion Recipe. This is an easy, basic recipe that is perfect for beginners. We used apricot kernel oil and grapeseed oil. Both are light, absorb-able and non-greasy oils and are perfect when you want a light lotion. This would be a perfect summer-time lotion with no heavy oils or butters. The fragrance oil we chose is the delicate Chamomile fragrance oil. Chamomile fragrance oil smells of freshly picked chamomile flowers with hints of fresh green herbs.

Popular Christmas FragrancesPopular Christmas Fragrances

It’s almost that time of year! Time for Christmas, time for gifts and time for some inspiration to create those gifts. Christmas can sometimes feel overwhelming! From decorating the house, writing out Christmas cards, baking cookies, shopping, Christmas parties, well, the list can go on and on. Plus, trying to think up something fun and unique to give for your friends and family can be intimidating as well. If your a crafter, soaper, candlemaker, then naturally you have the urge to make something for those friends and family. Nature’s Garden has a list of our 10 Popular Christmas Fragrances that we hope will get those creative juices flowing!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Candy Cane Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Candy Cane Fragrance Oil

First up we have our Candy Cane Fragrance Oil. This is a very popular fragrance at Christmas time! This isn’t just a straight up peppermint scent. This fragrance is peppermint, spearmint, with a touch of strawberries, eucalyptus and a nice soft background of vanilla.

Candy Cane fragrance worked perfectly in our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, separation, or accelerating! However, we did experience some discoloring to a brown. You can use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help prevent the oxidation of the fragrance. Also, the scent retention was strong and true throughout the cure time!

This fragrance oil is body safe and would be perfect in all bath and body products. We have a wonderful recipe that uses our Candy Cane Fragrance Oil. Check out our sweet Candy Cane Candle. This candle has pretty pink, red and white layers with a fluffy white topping and some sweet little swirled wafer embeds sitting atop the fluff!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance Oil

This next fragrance oil is lovely all year long, not just at Christmas time! Christmas Cabernet fragrance oil has a true Cabernet scent of cherries and oak. With hints of ginger, vanilla and wine, this is a perfect fragrance to get you into the holiday spirit.

Christmas Cabernet is a soaper’s dream! During our cold process soap testing, there was no ricing, accelerating, or separating. Although it did turn a shade of olive brown, using a Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help prevent this. Also, the scent retention was incredibly strong even after its cure time. This fragrance is also body safe and makes some wonderful smelling bath and body products. It also worked equally well in all soy and vegetable waxes.

If you enjoy making bath and body products, check out our Wine Sugar Scrub recipe. Sugar scrubs are incredibly popular and easy to make. A few simple ingredients such as sugar, olive oil, cocoa butter and grapeseed oil, is all it takes to make up nine 4 oz. jars of this yummy smelling scrub! Your skin will smell amazing and will also feel soft and smooth afterward.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabin Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabin Fragrance Oil

Nature’s Garden’s Christmas Cabin Fragrance Oil is a true best seller during the holiday season. If Christmas had a smell it would definitely be the scent of bayberries, cranberries, cinnamon and orange zest! With one sniff, you can practically picture a pine tree, decorated with garlands of popcorn, cranberries, twinkling white lights and rustic ornaments adorning the branches, sitting in the corner of a cozy cabin, a warm, crackling fire burning in the stone fireplace. This fragrance is a definite must for your Christmas line-up!

Christmas Cabin did perfectly in our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, accelerating, separating or discoloring. Also, the scent retention was nice a strong! This fragrance also was perfect in all candle wax testing and room freshening sprays!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Thyme Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Thyme Fragrance Oil

Christmas Thyme fragrance oil is perfect for those that want a pine fragrance that isn’t overwhelming! Definite top notes of cinnamon, bayberries and apples along with the undertones of pine and thyme. A perfect balance that smells fresh and crisp!

Christmas Thyme is one of the few fragrances that is not body safe, therefore we did no cold process soap testing, nor any testing in bath and body products. However, this is a wonderful scent for those looking for candle fragrances that have wonderful cold and hot throws. This fragrance also makes a perfect room freshener or potpourri and incense.

If you are looking for a recipe to create for those that like potpourri, check out our Christmas Liquid Potpourri Recipe. This recipe uses our DPG solvent and of course, Christmas Thyme fragrance oil. When it’s ready to use, simply pour into your potpourri burner or even an oil burner and let your house fill with the fresh, clean scent of an outdoor Christmas.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance Oil

What in the world is a Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins? This fragrance oil by Natures Garden was inspired by one of our favorite movies of all times – “ELF”.  At one point in the movie, Buddy mentions that he feels like a “Cotton headed ninny muggin”; AKA…an ELF Airhead.  This made us think, “What would a cotton headed ninny muggin smell like?”  Cotton headed ninny muggin fragrance oil begins with sweet, buttery, creamy coconut and vanilla frosting; leading to middle notes of powdery heliotrope and spicy hints; and sits on a powerful vanilla base. A very yummy smelling cotton head you will be!

Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins worked perfectly in our cold process soap testing! With no ricing, accelerating, separating, it soaped beautifully. However, it does discolor to a chocolate brown. The addition of some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer would be perfect to help prevent that. This fragrance oil also tested positive in room fresheners, all candle waxes and in bath and body products!

Have you ever thought of making your own play dough? It’s actually an easy craft that the kids can help out making! With some flour, vegetable oil and warm water, you can have some fun creating when it gets too yucky to play outside! Our Scented Play Dough recipe is made with five different colors and five different Christmas fragrances, one being Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins! This is must try if your kids are looking for something fun to do!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Country Christmas Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Country Christmas Fragrance Oil

Our Country Christmas fragrance oil is a truly fantastic scent that is a blend of bayberries, cranberries, and apples, with spicy nuances of nutmeg and cloves with a top note of orange zests. This is another fragrance oil that makes me picture an old fashioned Christmas in a warm, cozy farmhouse or cabin. 

Country Christmas fragrance oil was not tested in cold process soap due to the fact that the maximum body safeness level was very low. If you do choose to soap with it, please try to stick to the guideline of the percentage we have allowed for. However, this fragrance is perfect in candles, wax melts, and any type of room freshening recipe!

With a country Christmas comes pictures of rustic decorations, home smells and family gatherings. We developed an easy decoration that uses our Country Christmas fragrance! Our Scented Twine Christmas Ornaments are a fun, easy craft to create! Simply wrap twine around an inflated balloon, coat the twine in scented glue, allow to dry. When the twine has hardened, you can pop the balloon and you’re left with a yummy smelling, rustic ornament that will give your tree a down-home look!

This fragrance oil is truly a charming Christmas scent that is filled with surprises to delight all of the senses! Smell the plums, dark cherries and sweet oranges enhanced with peppery woody pine undertones and you will be entranced with the combination!

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy fragrance did very well in our cold process soap testing! There was no accelerating, ricing or separating. It did discolor to a light beige. It also did wonderful in bath and body products, room fresheners and in all candle waxes with strong scent retention all around.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Soap making supplies, Uncategorized, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe

There is something about Autumn and the holidays that make you want to create a warm, cozy home. I suppose it is similar to hibernating. If you are going to spend most of your time indoors during the cold weather, then making your home a snug place to come home to is your hibernation time. There is nothing better than walking in the front door of your home to warmth, family, pets and good smells to make you feel safe and happy to be there! Nature’s Garden’s Pecan Pie Wax Melts recipe will definitely give your home a wonderful, inviting smell of warm butter, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted pecans.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan PiePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan Pie

While any information on how the Pecan Pie came to be is a little sketchy, it is for certain, that it started out as one type of dessert similar to the ingredients that were used and then evolved into a true Southern dessert using staple ingredients that were native to the area. The basis of this pie is sugar, butter, syrup (pre-Karo syrup days, it was cane syrup) and eggs. This is the basic recipe for Chess Pie, which has its own origin. However, the addition of pecans and whoever thought of adding it is a mystery that will never be solved, but let’s thank whoever felt like spicing up their dessert! A personal favorite addition to my pecan pie? Chocolate drizzle and a dollop of ice vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm!  However, our inspiration for this project came from these pecan mini pies from Sugar Hero.  While, of course, our wax melts aren’t edible, her mini pecan pies are simply AMAZING! So, if this wax tart recipe, and sent leaves your belly grumbling, give her recipe a try.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Let’s Talk Ingredients

So before we move onto making our Pecan Pie Wax Melts, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the ingredients we are using.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

So anytime a recipe calls for a wax melt,  we will always use our Pillar of Bliss. The reason for that is that Pillar of Bliss is the best wax when we are using a mold for our creation. This wax has an easy release from the mold since it hardens up nicely. Most waxes, such as soy, are often too soft and can often difficult to get out of the mold. Pillar of Bliss is a granulated blend of soy wax (more than 50 percent) and paraffin wax. This wax has excellent scent retention as well as amazing hot and cold throws. 

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle Wax

The next wax we will be using is our Joy Wax Candle Wax. This wax is also a blend of soy, veggie waxes, and paraffin. Joy Wax also has wonderful scent retention along with awesome hot and cold throws. Any time you would like to add a fluffy topping to any of your candle creations, this wax is perfect for that! As you will see, it can be whipped up into a puffy cloud of fluff! It’s perfect for use in dessert candles or wax melts!

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Granny’s Pecan Pie Fragrance Oil

This is one of my favorite home scents to use for the fall (or anytime actually). It has a warm aroma of brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and roasted pecans. This fragrance oil does amazing in all candle waxes that were tested. It also did very well when we tested in Cold Process soap. While it did discolor to a chocolate brown (which I think is a perfect color for a soap when using this fragrance) there was no acceleration, or ricing! It did, however, separate, yet it reabsorbed with no problem. I am sure that this would be a perfect fragrance to add to your fall/holiday line of products.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Ingredients Available at Nature’s Garden

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You will Need

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your wax melts, it is always good to prepare your work area. Clean your work area and also your equipment that you will be using. Make sure that you have all your ingredients and utensils handy and within reaching distance. These few steps will help ensure that your creating will run smoothly and uninterrupted. If this is your first time working with candle wax, you might like to familiarize yourself with how to make candles. Follow this link to get a quick rundown on melting and pour temperatures and also proper temperatures for adding fragrances.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing Your Double Boiler

The first step before starting your wax melts will be to set up your double boiler. If you know the process of setting up a double boiler, you can move on to the next step of prepping your wax. However, if you are unfamiliar with a double boiler, we can explain to you how it is done in a few easy steps.

First, you will need a large pot or even an old cake pan for the outside part of your double boiler. Place this onto your heating element. This can be your stove top or even a hot plate. Next, pour about 3 inches of water into the pot or pan. Then, you will need a smaller pot or a pouring pot, for the inside part of the double boiler. As a side note, it isn’t really necessary, however, it is so much easier pouring melted wax into the molds if your pot has a pouring spout. That is why a pouring pitcher is ideal as the inner part of your double boiler. Next, turn your burner on to medium heat to allow the water to warm up as you are preparing your wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the BasesPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the Bases

First, you will be preparing the bases of the wax melts. For this step, you will need the Pillar of Bliss Wax. On your scale, set your pouring pot and tare out the weight. Weigh out 325 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oilPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oil

Next, place the pouring pot into the larger part of your double boiler and allow the wax to melt to the proper temperature, stirring occasionally. While you are waiting for the wax to melt, you can weigh out the fragrance oil. To a small dish, weigh out 32 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. You can set this aside for the moment. Once your wax has reached the correct melting point, remove the pouring pot from the heat and you can now add in the liquid candle dyes. We are going for a pecan color so you will add in 3 drops of yellow liquid candle dye and 4 drops of brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to incorporate the color thoroughly.

Once the wax has reached the correct temperature for the fragrance oil, you can now add that, once again stirring well to completely disperse the oil throughout the wax.

Now that your melted wax is colored and scented, you will be pouring the wax into their molds. With the silicone mini muffin mold in front of you, carefully fill each mold to the top with the melted wax. Once these are all filled, allow them to set up completely until they have cooled. Pop them out of the muffin cavities and place them on a piece of wax paper. You can set these aside for the moment.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan Embeds

Next, you will be preparing the Pecan Embeds. For the embeds, you will notice we are using a mold from Flexible Molds. This company offers many different types of molds to fit any of your soap or candle making needs. They are very durable molds, that will last you a long time! So, to your pouring pot weigh out 50 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax and place it into the larger pot of heated water. Melt this wax down to the proper temperature. While you are waiting for this wax to melt, weigh out 5 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil into a small bowl and set this aside for the moment.

For the color of the pecans, you will only need a small amount. So, using a toothpick to add the color, swirl in a small amount of yellow and brown liquid candle dye. The pecans do not have to be the same exact shade as the bases of the wax melts. It is okay if they are a bit lighter. Stir the liquid color until it is fully blended. Now you can add in the pre-weighed fragrance oil and stir this well also. Next, you will pour the melted wax into the pecan embeds mold carefully. Once again, you will let these set up until cool before removing them from the mold. Since the mold has only 6 cavities, you will need to remelt any of the wax remaining in the pot to pour the second set of pecans.  Set the pecans aside on a piece of wax paper until later.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate DrizzlePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate Drizzle

Next, you will be preparing the chocolate drizzle. For this, you will need the joy wax. In your pouring pot, weigh out 20 grams of Joy wax. Melt the wax completely and then add in 2 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. Then, using the toothpick method, add in both black and brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to fully incorporate the fragrance and color.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Drizzling the Chocolate

Now, you will drizzle the chocolate wax over the bases of your pecan pies. So, using a spoon, dip it into the wax and holding it above the bases, drizzle the wax back and forth over the pies until you have used all the wax, or until you are satisfied with your drizzle.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Whipped Topping

The next step is preparing the whipped topping of the pies. As a side note, if you are using the same pouring pot as in the previous steps, you will want to clean out the pot completely using paper towels. This is only necessary since the whipped topping will be white with no color. Any leftover colored wax may cause your wax to have a tint. So, in your cleaned out pouring pot, weigh out 120 grams of Joy Wax. Place into the heated water and melt, stirring occasionally.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the whipped toppingPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the whipped topping

So once the joy wax has completely melted, remove the pouring pot from the heat source and add in 12 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance and stir this well to combine. For this step, you can use a mixer or even just a spoon. As your wax is cooling down, it will begin to thicken. As it begins to thicken, mix the wax to create a whipped topping consistency. Once you have your wax to whipped consistency, place a dollop on top of each cupcake base.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Pecan Embeds

Next, place a pecan embed on top of each whip topped pie. Press down so the embed adheres to the top snugly. This recipe creates 12 wax melts. Pecan Pie Wax Melts are ready to use! Simply place one in your wax burner and enjoy the warm, comforting aroma that will fill your home!

Now that any bacteria that may have been living in the water has been killed off, you can use this water to create this cosmetic lotion recipe. Although you needed to heat the water to sanitize it, you will need to cool the water before you can use it. Otherwise, the boiling hot water could potentially break down the lotion base, which would ruin the ingredients in the multi base. So, you will need to wait for your water’s temperature to drop to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. While you wait for the temperature to lower to the proper temperature you can prepare some of your other cosmetic ingredients.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Measuring the Fragrance OilShimmering Lotion Recipe: Measuring the Fragrance Oil

First, you can measure out the fragrance for you scented lotion recipe. So, grab and medium mixing bowl and some disposable pipettes. Since our disposable pipettes have measurements along the side, you can use one of these pipettes to measure out 9 milliliters of the Frost and Snowdrops Fragrance Oil. You will love the romantic aroma of this fragrance oil in your lotion recipe. This scent begins with top notes of refreshing winter air that are followed by the aroma of sweet winter flowers. Finally, this fragrance has base notes of iced musk, vanilla, and sandalwood. So, this is a fantastic ingredient that you can add to this lovely bath and body recipe.

These ingredients are included to nourish and care for the skin in various ways.

We include up to 1% of this preservative in our formulations. Although you can use up to 5% of this preservative safely, you can use 0.1 to 0.2 percent of Germall Plus to effectively preserve your lotion.

Now that your water has cooled, you are ready to add it to the lotion base. If you didn’t wait for the water to cool down properly, you could’ve potentially ruined the lotion base. This could occur because a multi base can start to break down once it gets too hot. So, you can retrieve your medium mixing bowl to add the sanitized water. Now, use your scale to measure out seven and a half ounces of water. Although your water won’t be scorching hot, it should still be warm enough, at one hundred degrees Fahrenheit, to melt the lotion base as the lotion making ingredients are mixed together.

Next, we are going to emulsify these three cosmetic ingredients to create our scented lotion. So, you will need to use a stick blender to mix these ingredients thoroughly. Once all of your ingredients have been blended together fully, you will be finished with the mixer. Although your mix of cosmetic ingredients will be a bit thin at this point, the scented bath and body recipe will thicken as this the ingredients cool. Since we have a few more ingredients to add, your lotion should be ready to scoop into the wholesale cosmetic jars once everything has been combined.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Mica DustShimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Mica Dust

Finally, you are ready to add the shimmer and shine to your scented lotion. So, you can use a measuring spoon to add two teaspoons of the diamond dust mica powder to your lotion mixture. Once you have added this cosmetic ingredient, you will need to thoroughly mix this ingredient into your scented lotion recipe. This will leave you with a finished product that glistens like sunlight off the fresh blanket of powdery snow!

Next, you are going to add the lovely coloring to your scented lotion recipe. So, you will need to be adding a cosmetic colorant to your mixture of cosmetic supplies.

In order to get the right shade of blue, you will need to add just four drops of our Blue Da Bomb soap dye to your cosmetic mixture. After you have included this wonderful dye, you will need to mix this cosmetic ingredient into your recipe until you have reached the perfect frosty blue color for this magical winter season.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Packaging Your Finished ProductShimmering Lotion Recipe: Packaging Your Finished Product

At this point, you can either pour or scoop the lotion mixture into your cosmetic jars. After pouring your mixture, you will find that you will be able to fill two of our eight ounce jars.

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: A little Bit of Pumpkin HistoryPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: A little Bit of Pumpkin History

Pumpkins have been a part of history for quite sometime. In fact, they were a staple in early American diets and not in pumpkin pie! The oldest evidence of pumpkins were in pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 B.C. and were found in Mexico. Then, only the seeds were eaten as the pumpkins flesh was too bitter to be eaten. However, with cultivation, pumpkins began to develop a sweeter taste and became a Native American staple. Pumpkin was dried, stewed, baked and roasted. When the pumpkin had been hollowed out, they could be used as a water vessels, storage containers or even bowls.

Pumpkins were such a large part of some Native American food culture. They were actually part of a growing process the Indians called “The Three Sisters”. The sisters were corn, pumpkins and beans. These vegetables were planted together, each one benefiting the other as they grew. Nowadays, pumpkins are a natural fall icon, used mostly for Jack O’ Lanterns, or fall decorating. These pumpkins are mass produced and not edible in the least, although there are still pumpkins grown strictly for eating. These are smaller, denser and sweeter tasting and perfect for those Thanksgiving pumpkin pies and cakes!

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepare Your Double Boiler

You will be using a double boiler to melt your waxes and butters, so you will want to get that ready. If you are familiar with how a double boiler works, you can skip this part and move on to the next step. If not, we can give a quick tutorial on setting one up. Double boilers are easy to create. You will need 2 different sized pots, preferably ones that you no longer use for cooking. One pot should be smaller than the other, so that it can fit inside the larger one. In the larger pot, place a few inches of water. To the smaller pot, you will add your waxes and butters. Then you will place the smaller pot into the larger pot to allow the butters and waxes to melt.

Once you have the outside pot heating on the heat source, you will weigh out the wax, oils and butters to the smaller pot. Place your clean pot on the scale, tare out the weight and weigh in 57 grams of Palm Oil, 42 grams of Mango Butter, 113 grams of Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 6 grams of White Beeswax and 15 grams of Pumpkin Seed Oil.

 

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Melting the Wax, Oils and Butters

Place the smaller pot inside the larger pot. Now you will melt the oils, butters and wax on a gentle heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is melted and combined. Once everything is nicely melted, you can turn off your heat and remove the inner pot and set it aside for the moment.
