We will prepare six colors of soap for the confetti and streamers portion of  this recipe. Each of the colors will be poured on a piece of wax paper. Once it sets up, we will cut half of the soap for streamers and half for confetti. By pouring the soap on a piece of wax paper, it will allow us to create a very thin layer of soap. We will also add a small amount of vegetable glycerin to give the soap some additional flexibility.

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company

We at Natures Garden have found a wonderful soap and candle creator that we would like to share with you! This creator’s name is Cory and she makes gorgeous cold process soaps, adorable candles, and even more fun recipes! Not only does Cory share some fantastic homemade recipes on her YouTube channel, but she has her very own candle and soap making business! The Sunshine Soap and Candle Company website is full of high-quality products that are unique and beautiful! If you are interested in learning even more about Cory and her candle and soap business, then check out more information below!

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: What is the Company's Mission?Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: What is Sunshine Soap and Candle Company?

Cory shared with us that the Sunshine Soap and Candle Company had come to be 2014.

Further, she has expressed the following as the core beliefs behind this company. “I have a passion for creating beautiful, usable products. I have always been drawn to more natural products, but also really wanted them to look beautiful as well as perform very well. I have always wanted people to smile, feel happy and a bit pampered when
they use my handmade products. The name of my company really epitomizes my idea of happiness. As a native Californian, I am a lover of the beach and the sun. These things make me happy and are reflected in my logo to represent the feelings I wanted people to have when using my products. Today, we carry an array of products you can feel good about like body butters, lotions, night cream, soap, candles and more.”

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: How Did This Business Start?

Today Sunshine Soap and Candle Company sells all kinds of products! This includes homemade candles and soap made from scratch. While this company has lots of wonderfully created recipes now, this endeavor began with Cory’s love for candles and an interest in making them at home!

According to Cory herself, ” A lot of people may not know that that Sunshine Soap and Candle Company started out in 2001 as a candle company only. I was a new college grad and newly married. I was working full time at a local insurance company and needed some
creative outlets. I was really into burning candles and thought I could make them.
That is when I started getting into the art of making candles. Back then, there was
no YouTube, so I did all my research and studying from books and hands on trial
and error. I became obsessed with making the perfect burning candle! Once I got
it down “Twilight Inspirations” was born and I started selling my candle creations.
I LOVED creating products from scratch and customizing items.”

Of course, this interest in candle making has grown over time and has led to even more skill for the craft through experience and experimentation. Plus, we all know that trying out a new craft is fun and can lead to another beloved hobby. In the case of Cory’s company, trying something new led to expanding her company to add even more lovely products!

Cory has shared that, “Over the years my candle making style evolved with changing styles and times. Fast forward to 2013 and three kids later! I became fascinated with soap
making after attending several local markets. I decided to give it a try. As soon as
I tried it, I knew I needed to expand my product line to include soaps. I loved it so
much I couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before! I immersed myself in research and
studying until I came up with soap I could actually feel great about selling.”

Crafts for St. Patrick's DayCrafts for St Patricks Day

March 17 is a wonderful day if you are Irish. Not many countries have a day dedicated to celebrating their heritage, beliefs and traditions all over the world! Even if you are not lucky enough to have Irish blood coursing through your veins it doesn’t really matter! You can still partake in the fun traditions the Irish have shared with the world! Green beer, corned beef and cabbage, leprechauns and wearing green are just a few ways this amazing country loves to express their heritage loud and clear! 

Crafters are always looking for ways to enhance any kind of holiday or season and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. We at Nature’s Garden have rounded up some crafts for St Patricks Day to help enhance your line of creations. If you are in need of some fresh inspiration to show off your skills as a candle maker, a soaper or all of the above then take a look through a few of these easy, and fun recipes below!

No celebration of your Irish heritage (or just because) would be complete without green beer! So why not a Green Beer Candle? This fun candle recipe uses our gel wax for the beer part and soy wax that is whipped up to give your beer its foamy top! This candle is so innovative and easy! We suggest using a clear beer stein to give your candle that look of realism! We used our Green Irish fragrance oil that is by far one of my favorite scents at Nature’s Garden! An amazingly strong, spicy-sweet scent that works perfectly in all manners of soaping or candle making. It may discolor your product to a lavender color, but if you use a bit of green dye (especially with this recipe) you will not have a problem. This is such an awesome fragrance and the candle is incredibly easy to create!

 

Crafts for St. Patrick's Day Pot O' Gold Candle RecipeCrafts for St Patricks Day Pot O’ Gold Candle Recipe

I bet you think creating such a cute rainbow and pot of gold is going to be complicated! This Pot O’ Gold Candle looks like it is complicated to make, but it is really as simple as can be.  We chose to use beeswax to create the little rainbow scene and it is really a very easy process. Beeswax is very pliable after it has been melted and it will help make this step of the creation quick and easy. We also chose our Joy Wax for the body of the candle.

  Joy Wax is amazing to work with. It has an awesome cold and hot scent throw, it will burn clean and has a nice satiny finish. Our fragrance oil of choice is Green Clover and Aloe. A fresh, floral scent that reminds me of a warm, spring day after it rains! This fragrance oil works well in all soy waxes and even in air fresheners.

Along with the basic ingredients of bath bombs, baking soda, citric acid and corn starch, we have incorporated French Green Clay that is incredibly nutritious to the skin plus it will give some gentle exfoliation.

Natural Soap Colorants: Katie Makes Soap Part 2

Natural Soap ColorantsHi, there! It’s me, Katie, again. I’ve already told you about my first attempt at soapmaking. and guess what? I made more soap! Or at least tried to. This time I decided to experiment with natural soap colorants in melt and pour soap. (Different soap processes can affect natural colorants differently, but you’re generally OK with melt and pour- read the pages on the colorants for more information.) I wanted to make a color gradient with natural soap colorants, and I had the following powders: Red Moroccan Clay Powder, Orange Peel Powder, Carrot Powder, Rose Clay Powder, and Lemon Peel Powder. I used red clay, orange peel, and carrot in my first soap, and I got rose clay and lemon peel for a pink lemonade soap idea that I had (didn’t work out, going to try again- that blog will be coming soon!).

So, when you want to disperse a powder evenly in soap for coloring purposes, you want to ‘wet’ it with vegetable glycerin. Soap loves glycerin. I got a two pound slab of Shea Butter Melt and Pour, and first cut it in half because I was using a 1lb loaf mold. Then- lucky me- that slab was divided evenly into 20 squares- five rows of four- and I had five powders- so I separated my melt and pour base into five cups of four squares each. Then I measured out 0.1 oz of each powder into separate lil glass bowls. (One tenth of an ounce is the smallest amount [in ounces] that my scale would register.) I added 0.1 oz of veggie glycerin to each of my fruit and veggie powders, but the lemon peel powder was not mixing well- so I added more! I used 0.2 oz veggie glycerin for my fruit and veggie powders. I had to beat out the lumps of the carrot powder but with the extra veggie glycerin, it ended up being a very thin liquid. The others were more like pastes. I added 0.1 oz of veggie glycerin to my clay powders and that was enough to turn them into a workable texture. Woohoo! Here are my powders lined up:Powders

Out of habit, I had originally thought the lemon peel mixture would be the lightest- yellow, right? But it was actually a light brown. Hmm. Well. My eyes didn’t lie. So I lined the powders up this way since it seemed to be the most aesthetically pleasing- looked like a gradient and that’s what I was going for.

This time, I used the microwave for my melting and wow, that was so much faster and easier than trying to use the stove. I still wasn’t 100% sure on my carrot, orange, and lemon powders being in the correct order for a proper gradient (lemon = yellow, right, brain?) so I put my four squares each of melt and pour (cut up, of course, for easier melting) into three glass containers with spouts and thoroughly stirred in my powder-glycerin mixtures.

Natural Soap Colorants

Lemon was clearly the darkest of the three. It was a close call between carrot and orange, but orange was definitely closer to the color of the lemon powder soap. Well, alright. I had to melt them again because melt and pour isn’t really designed for stopping and taking photos and then I began pouring them into the mold one layer at a time. I poured my carrot layer first and sprayed the top with rubbing alcohol to get rid of air bubbles. I let that sit for.. I’m not sure exactly- about half an hour? It was only 1/5 of a pound so it didn’t take too terribly long to set up. Then I sprayed the top of that layer with rubbing alcohol (it evaporates out- so no worries there) and poured the next layer, sprayed it with rubbing alcohol, and let it set up. I repeated these steps for all five layers.

Natural Soap ColorantsI let the soap sit for a while before I popped it out of the mold to admire it, and then waited even longer before I cut it. I ended up with five ~1″ thick bars. I just cut it on a cutting board with a big knife- nothing fancy, so it’s not exact. And behold these beauties: the dark spots in the middle layers are likely spots where my powder clumped up but the carrot powder also seemed to settle into little specks on the bottom. I like it. It’s super cute. The lemon layer is also the most malleable, the other layers are quite hard and the lemon layer has a small bit of give. This bar smells slightly citrus-y near the lemon and orange layers, but overall, no overwhelming scent – I was more focused on the appearance anyway. It lathers like a dream, though. <3

Natural Soap ColorantsWhat did I learn? Well, the concentration of your powder is very important in determining coloring. That failed soap I mentioned above? I used the same amount of rose clay powder (and veggie glycerin to color an entire pound of it and you can really tell the difference 5x colorant concentration makes. The red clay layer actually looks closer to the solid-colored soap. Interesting. I think if I made another gradient soap, I would pick one colorant and do the different layers in different concentrations. No guess work when it comes to the proper order that way. It’s also been brought to my attention that certain non-clay powders may have the tendency to oxidize and eventually turn brown. I think they worked well in this soap not to mention the added benefits, but I may stick with clay for colorants in the future.

Here’s my first soap side-by-side with my second soap. So cute! Different combinations and different concentrations make different colors. I can’t wait to experiment with this further!
