10 Ways to Use Safflower Oil10 Ways to Use Safflower Oil

Most of those that are on a special diet low in fat and cholesterol could probably tell you that safflower oil is awesome for cooking with. It’s light, odorless, colorless and it lets the taste of your food shine through. However, safflower oil is also amazing in cosmetics, hair care products and in soap! Since it is so light, it absorbs easily with no greasiness and it locks in that moisture to keep your skin hydrated and healthy looking. Safflower oil is high in linoleic acid and in oleic acid, both excellent for fighting acne and helping regenerate new skin cells to help keep you looking young and fresh. It’s also amazing in hair care products or even as an oil treatment for your hair. Safflower oil helps keep your hair soft, shiny, moisturized and also improves hair growth. Below Nature’s Garden has developed 10 ways to use safflower oil in your personal routine!

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare You Work Area

Prior to starting it is important to be prepared. You will really want to make sure your work space is clean and sanitized before you begin creating your bubble bars. We also recommend wearing an apron, your safety gloves, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe. Having a clean and sanitized work space will assure to keep your Galaxy bubble bars nice and clean. In addition, get out any ingredients or equipment that you will be using and place them in your work area. Having everything you need at an arm’s reach will help the process go more quickly and smoothly.

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Dry IngredientsGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to weigh out your dry ingredients. In total, you will have four dry ingredients you will be weighing out. You can use measuring cups but we recommend using a scale that will allow you to weigh in grams. In a mixing bowl, you will want to add 460 grams of baking soda, 410 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, 72 grams of corn starch, and 224 grams of cream of tartar. Next, you want to mix together all the ingredients. This can be done with a mixing spoon, but we always find it easier to use our hands. Also, use your hands to break up any clumps you may find throughout the powder mixture. Clumps will not be your friend during this process.

If you have never used sodium cocoyl isethionate or SCI for short, you should definitely give it a try! Sodium cocoyl isethionate will leave your skin feeling super soft. Also, sodium cocoyl isethionate is great for sensitive skin. We highly recommend giving sodium cocoyl isethionate a try. It is a wonderful SLS alternative that truly is amazing!

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Wet IngredientsGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Wet Ingredients

Next, you are going to be preparing your wet ingredients. For this step, you will have a total of three wet ingredients. So, get your bowl of dry ingredients and tare the weight on the scale. Alternatively, you could weigh these ingredients in a separate bowl before adding it to the dry ingredients. This could be helpful for those worried about pouring too much, as it could alter your recipe. So, in a large mixing bowl, blend 200 grams of your vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the safflower oil, and 14 grams of Natures Garden’s Grape Happy Camper Fragrance Oil.  Once again, while you can use the volume measurements above, we highly recommend using weighted measurements.  By weighing your ingredients in grams, you will get a more accurate measurement and an overall better outcome.

Now, add your wet ingredients to the mixing bowl containing the dry powdered ingredients. Once again, go ahead and use your hands to mix the ingredients. Also, make sure you get all the clumps out. Keep mixing the wet and dry ingredients until you get a dough like consistency. You want to make sure your dough is not too crumbly. If it becomes crumbly, you can add a little bit more vegetable glycerin. However, you want to be very careful when adding the vegetable glycerin. If you end up adding too much vegetable glycerin, your dough will become too wet and the recipe may not dry properly. Make sure you are super careful when measuring and mixing your dry and wet ingredients.

 

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Separating Your DoughGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Separating Your Dough

Next, we are going to separate the bubble bar dough you just made into three bowls. So, you will need three of your mixing bowls. In a later step, we will be adding a different colorant to each bowl. Although for now, you just need to make sure while separating the dough into three bowls, the are equally divided to include 1/3 in each bowl. They don’t have to be exactly even, just a rough 1/3 in each bowl will work. However don’t let your big mixing bowl go too far, you’ll need it again in a later step. Now for the fun part! Start getting excited!

Next, we will be adding color. In each of the three bowls, you will be adding one of Natures Garden’s three FUN Soap Colorants. In the first bowl, add five grams of neon blue FUN Soap Colorant. Then, use your hands to mix the blue colorant into the bubble bar dough. Now, with clean gloves, add five grams of Natures Garden’s ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorant to the second bowl. Lastly, in your third bowl, add five grams of the neon pink soap colorant.  While wearing clean gloves, mix the colorants into the final bowl of dough. Once you have mixed each portion of dough, roll them into a ball and place each one back in their bowl. Remember you may need to change gloves for each color. This will prevent the colors from mixing with each other prematurely.

Now, you will need the large bowl you were using earlier in the recipe. Go ahead and place your pink bubble bar dough, blue dough, and purple dough ball in your large bowl. Place them next to each other in the bowl but not directly on top of each other. Then, press down on the dough balls to flatten each color dough ball completely. You can overlap slightly as you press on each ball. The goal is to fill the bowl completely.  When we begin scooping we will scoop across the bowl to allow us to get a little bit of each color.

Next, scoop the dough using your small stainless steel scooper. While scooping the dough with your stainless steel ice cream scooper, make sure you get a little bit of the pink dough, the blue dough, and the purple dough color in the ice cream scoop. Then, release each scoop onto a piece of parchment paper or on your silicone baking mat. This recipe will make about thirty of the small ice cream scoops.

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Let's Add Sparkle!Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Let’s Add Sparkle!

Now, let’s add some sparkle! We used Natures Garden Diamond Dust Mica Pigment to add some shimmer to the Galaxy bubble bars. This will give your handcrafted bubble bars a silvery white sparkle. While this is totally optional, we thought it was the perfect finishing touch to really give the bubble bars the true Galaxy feel. So, sprinkle your bubble bar scoops with Natures Garden diamond dust mica powder. While making the recipe, we used about two grams of diamond dust pigment. But you can use as much or as little as you would like.

 

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Allowing Them to SetupGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Allowing Them to Setup

Finally, you will just need to let your bubble bars setup.  I know you want to use them right away, but you will need to be patient. It can take a few days and in some cases as long as a week for them to setup.  While setup will not take as long a typical rolled bubble bar, for us they just took a few days. It all depends on the environment they are setting up in. You will know they are ready when they feel completely dry.  If you try to pick your bubble bars up too soon, they may fall apart in your hands. So, make sure you allow a few days for the bubble bars to completely harden before moving them or packaging them. Your finished product should turn out like the picture shown. Look at how awesome and vibrant the colors turn out! The diamond dust mica powder adds a great look to these bubble bars.

So, I crumbled one into a bowl, here is a picture of a finished Galaxy bubble bar in a little water. When using your bubble bars at home, crumble a couple of your hardened scoops under your warm running bath water.
