Spinach plants prefer to grow in cooler temperatures. For common spinach, you will want to plant in midsummer. If you have a mild winter, you could even plant in the fall. However, this depends on your climate. Either way, the soil should not be over 70 degrees Fahrenheit for your seeds. However, your spinach is able to survive all the way down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your spinach sprouts are about two inches high, you should thin them to be about three inches apart. After this, all you have to do is water regularly and use mulch to keep them moist. You can harvest the leaves whenever they are big enough, but you should try to cut the outer leaves first. This will ensure that the middle leaves can continue to grow.

One wonderful tip for reducing damage due to leaf miners is to plant radishes. The radishes will not only distract the pests from your spinach, but the roots will continue to grow unaffected! While starting sprouts inside and transplanting them will be less appealing to pests like cutworms, there are other preventative measures you can take. For wireworms, can try to plant carrots nearby to trap these pests. Then, every few days after the carrot has reached maturity you can pull up the carrots, remove the worms, and replant the affected carrot. For flea beetles, you can try to lay reflective mulch or aluminum to ward them off.

Juniper Berry plants are most common in the Northern Hemisphere and they come in a few different varieties. You can tell these varieties apart by their heights, as they are either one and a half feet tall, four feet tall, six feet tall, or twenty-five feet tall. So, these plants can vary from the sizes of small shrubs to large trees. Since they are similar to conifers, they have needles or scales that are useful for helping the plant survive droughts. But, this means that the Juniper plant can’t handle being over watered. If they have wet soil that doesn’t drain well, they will suffer. So, you should never need to water your plant unless there have been severe drought conditions. Although Junipers prefer acidic soil, they can grow in a variety of soil types. Also, they will prefer to be exposed to full sun.

Juniper Berry Benefits: Harvesting Your Juniper Berries

First, make sure that you do in fact have an edible variety of juniper before you begin your harvest. The most common edible variety of juniper is Juniperus communis, but there are many varieties out there that are poisonous or bitter tasting. After you are sure you have the correct tree, you will want to pick the soft berries that are a blue/black color. Make sure that you don’t pick unripe berries as they won’t dry properly. Then, you can dry your berries by allowing them to set inside at room temperature for approximately three weeks. Once the berries are dried you will need to remove any berries that are brown or have viable entrance holes. These berries will have bugs living inside them. Lastly, you can either use your berries immediately or store them in an airtight jar for up to a year.

Juniper Berry Benefits: Caution for Anyone that has Apple Trees

You may want to hold off on planting a juniper berry tree/shrub if you have an apple tree. There is a fungus that can infect your apple tree called cedar-apple rust. It will begin growing on the juniper trees or shrubs first. Then, the fungus can make its way to any of the apple trees nearby.

In fact, you can include this wholesale herb in many different bath and body recipes that will care for your skin and hair. Plus, there are some great medicinal benefits that have been found to be gained from eating this fresh fruit. Further, there are many ways to incorporate this fruit into your diet, through either homemade recipes or even just eating the plain fruit. So, you can use this natural cosmetic blog to find out more about the grapefuit herb and the other properties of grapefruits.

Grapefruit Benefits: Growing ConditionsGrapefruit Benefits: Growing Conditions

First of all, grapefruit trees will require a temperate or tropical climate. These conditions are ideal because these plants need lots of sunlight and warm conditions. In fact, they need it to be relatively warm both during the day as well as at night. So, more tropical regions may be best, but they can survive in temperate regions with some extra care. Also, the grapefruit trees like to have loamy soil that drains well.
Another thing you will want to pay attention to is the amount of space available for your tree to grow. When planting the tree try to pick a place on your land that will provide the most sun, some good winter protection, and at least twelve feet of space from buildings or driveways. After planting, you will want to water your sapling every couple of days. After about a week or so, you can start to water deeply just once a week. However, you may want to water more often during drought periods.

Grapefruit Benefits: Tips for Harvesting Grapefruits

During the first three years, you won’t have a harvest from a grapefruit tree. Instead, your grapefruit tree should direct its energy into growth. So, you may want to remove any small fruits that you see growing before the three year mark. Although you may be eager to try your homegrown fruit, picking these early fruits will ensure your tree grows to be strong. Once your tree is old enough, your fruits will be ready to be harvested in the fall. You will be able to tell they are ripe by their color. If the grapefruits have become a yellow or gold color, then they are ready to pick.

But, anyone that prefers their grapefruit on the sweeter side, like me, can leave the fruits on the tree a bit longer. This will allow them to get a bit larger and sweeter. However, use caution, they can be left on the tree for too long. An overripe grapefruit will appear lumpy and should be discarded.

Grapefruit Benefits: Industry Uses

There are all kinds of reasons to use grapefruit in a wide variety of products and recipes. First, you can use the abundance of vitamins and minerals available in this fruit to promote your health. Plus, you can incorporate more grapefruit though all kinds of delicious recipes.

Studies have shown that the vitamins and minerals in grapefruits can be useful when it comes to getting over a cold, protecting against inflammation, and strengthening the protective barrier of your skin. Also, grapefruit can be useful for reducing your risk for diabetes. Diabetes occurs when the body has built up a resistance to insulin, which leads to higher insulin and sugar levels in the blood. So, this fruit has evidence that it can help reduce insulin levels and resistance to help get your body on track.

Another potential benefit of grapefruit is improved heart health. It is thought that the high potassium content in this fruit will relax your blood vessels and arteries. So, grapefruit should be able to help reduce your blood pressure and lessen the risk of heart attack or stroke.

It has been found that the tryptophan in grapefruit is useful for helping you get sleepy and have a great night’s sleep.

However, people on medications should contact their doctor to ensure that there won’t be any interactions. For certain medications, grapefruit can cause overdose or increase side effects. This interaction can occur as grapefruit contains substances that can inhibit an enzyme that is used to metabolize certain medications. So, anyone taking medications like immunosuppressants, statins, Carbamazepine, Indivavir, Bensodiazepines, and many calcium channel blockers should contact their doctor before increasing their grapefruit intake.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?

What is resveratrol and what does It do? Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol that is created by a few different plants. You may know resveratrol best from red wine, but it can be found in other plants, too. For example, the Japanese knotweed contains this herb, too. Whether you consume it from natural sources or get a resveratrol supplement, there are tons of benefits for your body. Plus, there are even benefits that this cosmetic herb can provide for your skin! At Natures Garden we sell the resveratrol extract powder herb for creating skin-loving bath and body products. However, there are many known benefits that this herb can provide for your whole body! Let’s talk about some of the benefits that resveratrol has for you!

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Growing Conditions

There are a few different natural sources that we know of that contain resveratrol. For this cosmetic herb, it can be harvested from two different sources. First, we have the Japanese knotweed that is a hardy plant that is able to survive against a bombardment of pests, fungus and disease in its native environment. Second, we can get resveratrol from the skin of red grapes. Both these plants can be used to extract the same herb. No matter the source, there are many beneficial properties found in resveratrol. If you are interested, you can read below to learn more about both plants.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Red Grape SkinsWhat is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Red Grape Skins

Grapes require an area that is either full sun or gets direct sunlight in the morning. Also, most grapes require a warm climate, which the American grapes being the best for the cold. Their soil should be well draining, deep, loose, and moist due to a light layer of mulch. If you are growing new plants, then you will need to care and protect your plant for about three years before you get a harvest.

Once you get a bunch of grapes, you will know by the color. At first, they will be a bright green and they will turn to a deep, juicy red once they are ready. Just know that your grapes won’t continue to ripen after being picked. If you have grapes that won’t ripen, then you can prune some of the foliage to let more sun in for grapes that aren’t ripening. You can tell when your red grapes are ripe because the color will be a dark red without any visible green. Also, you can taste a few from different bunches to determine whether they are ready.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: The Japanese KnotweedWhat is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: The Japanese Knotweed

The Japanese knotweed, or Polygonum cuspidatum, is a plant that is native to Japan. While this hardy plant is considered a weed in its country of origin, it is not a danger to its native environment. In fact, the resveratrol harvested from it has quite a few beneficial properties. However, when this hardy plant is moved to a new environment it can become an invasive species. Since the plants are native to Japan, they are integrated into the local ecosystem and have a good amount of competition.

However, when this species moves into a new area without the same competition it has a leg up on all the other organisms. This can lead to the native plants in this new environment to go extinct, which can be detrimental to an environment as organisms rely on one another. This animal may be a food source for another or it may have been a predator that would keep the prey population levels steady. So, in areas like the US and many other places, we would consider this plant an invasive species. This means that there is likely a ban on planting this herb if you live in an area other than Japan, China, or Korea.

So, knowing about these oils is important for creating the types of bath and body products that you need!

What is a Carrier Oil?: Making Soap Supplies

If you are looking for a good recipe for making soap, then it is going to have some carrier oils in it. Anyone making soap from scratch knows that the carrier oils you choose can influence the quality of your bars. So, these ingredients are essential for cold process soap recipes. You can see specifics on how each oil affects the soap on our Soaping Oil Properties. Even melt and pour soap recipes can benefit by adding some carrier oils to the soap base, which is often done to make the bar more conditioning to the skin.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Lotion Making

Also, our bulk carrier oils can be used to create an amazing homemade lotion recipe. These are the oils that we include to nourish and moisturize your skin. In fact, the oils are what do the majority of the skin care in lotions. While you can use butters along with your oils, they can lead to a thicker cream or even a body butter. So, lighter lotions need key carrier oils to perform effectively!

What is a Carrier Oil?: Using Essential Oils

Although essential oils are natural, they aren’t safe to put directly on your skin. Plus, adding a carrier oil will help hold on to the aroma longer than on its own. So, it is actually beneficial for your scent to mix an essential oil with a carrier oil before applying. One of the best carrier oils for essential oils would have to be Sweet Almond Oil or Argan Oil.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Kinds of Carrier OilsWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Kinds of Carrier Oils

There are many different kinds of carrier oils that you can mix together for your recipes. Depending on your skin type or level of dryness, you may want to have lighter or heavier oils. Also, some oils are better for face lotions or for foot care. So, the blend of carrier oils that you want varies based on your product and its purpose.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Apricot Kernel OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Apricot Kernel Oil

First, we have Apricot Kernel Oil, an oil that is light and excellent for skin care. While this oil is light enough to not block pores, it is conditioning enough to be a luxurious oil for cp soap. It’s great for making lotions that don’t leave a greasy feeling and skin into the skin. Also, its perfect in soap because the oil will sink into the skin quickly to fully moisturize the skin. We’ve used this wonderful oil in many bath and body recipes, including the Chamomile Light Lotion Recipe and the Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Castor OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Castor Oil

Another great oil for your homemade cosmetic recipes is Castor Oil. Not only is this oil thick and perfect for nourishing dry, damaged skin, but this oil is a humectant. This means that oil will pull moisture to it, which will further moisturize your skin as it absorbs. Perfect for creating lotions for feet, like the Natural Salve Recipe , which are often one of the most damaged areas of skin. While this oil would provide some conditioning properties and a rich, creamy lather, it can make your soap sticky. So, avoid adding too much of this oil in your cp soap formulations. By limiting the amount of Castor Oil, we were able use the beneficial properties without as many drawbacks, like with our St Pattys Day Cold Process Soap Recipe as well as many other soaps.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Coconut OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is a great oil for skin that sinks in well and is perfect for scrub recipes like the Foaming Hibiscus Scrub Recipe. Also, this sensitive oil is perfect to add to lip balm supplies for making recipes like the Kahlua and Cream Lip Balm Recipe. For soapmaking, this oil provides a hard bar with a bubbly lather that is cleansing. Many find that adding more than 20% of this oil is drying for the skin, so some people may include more conditioning oils to the recipe or even super fat the formula to include more oils.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Grapeseed OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Grapeseed Oil

Another fantastic oil for bath and body recipes is Grapeseed Oil. This oil is perfect for cosmetic supplies because it is a lightweight moisturizer that is effective without being too greasy for the skin. So, this oil is perfect for creating lotions sensitive enough for the face, like our Natural Facial Night Cream Recipe. Also, this oil is perfect for soap-making, like our Raspberry CP Soap Recipe. This oil is moisturizing, and even anti-acne, for soap but it doesn’t leave a greasy, heavy oil feeling on the skin.

While Jojoba Oil is technically a liquid wax, it is still fantastic for skin care products. This cosmetic ingredient is perfect for everything from lotions like our Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe to lip care products like our Green Apple Lip Balm Recipe. In your soap recipes, this cosmetic ingredient is just as conditioning as luxury oils. But, this oil has a longer shelf life.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Lanolin OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Lanolin Oil

Lanolin Oil is a great cosmetic oil that is wonderful for moisturizing and protecting damaged hair and dry skin. This oil contains very few saponifiables, so it maintains its conditioning properties and provides the bar with a silky feeling. So, we used this wonderful oil in our Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe. Also, you can use lanoin in a solid form, which still absorbs well and is great for protecting damaged skin. This thicker oil has all of the same beneficial properties and can even be used in soaps, like our Beard Soap Recipe.

Next, we have Macadamia Nut Oil, which is an oil that is light and perfectly absorbs into the skin. This non-greasy oil is perfect for creating lotions, like our Almond Body Cream Recipe.

Another great oil that skins into the skin beautifully is Meadowfoam Seed Oil. Not only does this oil work to repair damaged skin, but it has a long shelf life due to its high level of antioxidants. So, it worked wonderfully in our Honey Vanilla Lip Balm Recipe. Also, this cosmetic oil can be used to superfat soap, reduce rancidity, and increase the fragrance’s lifespan. So, this oil was a great addition to our Raspberry CP Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Olive Oil

Olive Oil is often a top choice for soapers, because it is very conditioning, helps harden the bar, and creates a mild bar of soap. While some soapmakers may use only olive oil in Castille soap or mostly olive oil in Marseille soap, it makes the bar a bit slimy and barely has a lather. So, many soapers will combine this oil with others to create a great soap recipe, like in our Creamy Cocoa Craziness Cold Process Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Palm OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Palm Oil

Next, we have another great oil for creating soaps, which is Palm Oil. This soap making ingredient creates a hard, white bar that has a rich, creamy lather. We have used this wonderfully cleansing oil in many recipes, like our Calendula Swirl Soap Recipe and our Beer Cold Process Soap Recipe. 

You may find that your cosmetic oil has solidified, this is because the melt point is slightly above room temperature. Luckily, this is easy to fix. All you have to do is set your bottle in a bowl of warm water until the oil melts again.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can I Make Soap Without Using Lye?

Since the mp soap base has already been made, you can create melt and pour soap without worrying about the lye. If you are wondering “What is the difference between melt and pour soap and cold process soap?”, then this is a big difference. While melt and pour is pre-made and can be remelted, cold process soap is made from scratch using lye.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can Melt and Pour Soap Be Used Right Away?

Since mp soap was already made and the saponification process has already taken place, you don’t have to wait to use your soap. As soon as the melt and pour soaps have hardened in the molds, you can pop them out and use them!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Where Do I Find the Melt and Pour Soap IngredientsCommon Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Where Do I Find the Melt and Pour Soap Ingredients?

You can find the soap base ingredients in two places. The first place is online, as each mp soap base has the ingredients listed in the description. Also, these ingredients can be found on the label of the base itself.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What Soap Making Supplies Do I Need to Make Melt and Pour Soap?

Most importantly, you will need a microwave or double boiler and mp soap. Also, you will need a cutting board, knife, a microwave safe dish, spoon, rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, and a soap mold. If you want fragrance, color, or herbs you will need to have these out, too .

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Melt Soap Into a New Bar?

Melt and Pour soap can be melted using a double boiler on a stove top or a bowl in the microwave. Just make sure that you use 30 second intervals to warm the soap int the microwave. Otherwise, it may get too hot and your soap will be ruined. Also, make sure that you are watchful when melting soap on the stove. While a double boiler on medium heat will help to protect your soap, you don’t want to heat it too much longer after it is liquid.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Much Soap Will I Need for My Mold?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Much Soap Will I Need for My Mold?

For every ounce by volume that your mold is you will need 31 grams of soap by weight. So, let’s go to the Soap Mold page and pick one. I choose Ollie Octopus,which says it holds 4.5 ounces in the description. So, we are going to take  4.5 times the 31 to give us 139.5 grams

Formula: (Weight Needed Per Ounce) x (Ounces Mold Holds) = Total Weight

Equation: 31 grams per ounce  x  4.5 ounces = 139.5 grams of soap

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Get My Melt and Pour Soap Out of the Mold?

Sometimes your soap may get stuck in the mold. You can place the mold in the fridge for a short amount of time. Once the chilled soap mold is removed, the soaps should pop out fairly easily.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What Temperature Should I Pour Melt and Pour Soap?

Melt and Pour soap should be poured in a liquid state, which should be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. So, you can pour your soap once it has all completely melted.

 

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Do I Have Bubbles in My Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Do I Have Bubbles in My Melt and Pour Soap?

Although making air bubbles is unavoidable, you can get rid of them by spraying lightly with rubbing alcohol. These are often air bubbles that form when you pour, so you can release them by spraying right after you pour. However, bubbles that are a light-yellow color are fragrance oil and won’t go away by spraying. This is either due to adding too much fragrance oil or not mixing thoroughly.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Homemade Soap So Oily?

One reason that you soaps would be oily is that they contain too much oil. So, you can try reducing the amount of the fragrance oil and/or the carrier oil that you are adding to your soaps. If your bars look like they are sweating, then it could be due to not wrapping the soap soon enough. Since your soap contains an ingredient, vegetable glycerin, that pulls moisture to it, it will pull moisture out of the air to create “sweat”. But, you can lessen your chances of this by wrapping your soaps right after they are out of the mold.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Melt and Pour Soap Dissolving So Fast?

While a softer bar of soap is great for nourishing the skin, it is more likely to dissolve quickly in water. So, you can add some extra oil to your soap to moisturize. However, adding too much will make your bar very soft and it will dissolve quickly in the shower.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Swirl Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Swirl Melt and Pour Soap?

While it is possible to swirl mp soap, it is a bit trickier to swirl compared to cp soaps. On its own melt and pour soap won’t swirl. Instead, the colors will mix before the soap hardens. So, you need to add a cosmetic powder, like clay, fruit, or veggie powders. This will slightly thicken the soap and create tension between the two colors that are gong to create the swirl. We did this in our own Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe!

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Melt and Pour Soap Lather?

There are a few possible answers to this question. First off, soap can loose its lather due to an excess of oils and herbs being added to the bar. Also, some types of our soap base use ingredients that naturally lather better.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why is My Soap Not Hardening?

If your melt and pour soap isn’t hardening, then it could be due to adding too much oil. Whether the culprit is fragrance oil, carrier oil, or both, it is most likely that this excess oil is to blame. Another possibility is that the soap was overheated, which resulted in a break down in the soaps that prevents it from working properly.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Can You Use Essential Oils in Melt and Pour Soap?

Of course! Many essential oils can be used in soap making and the rules for using them safely are just like the ones for fragrance oils. So, you need to check the IFRA sheet to determine usage rates and figure out whether the specific essential oil is body safe. You can find this IFRA statement on the page of each individual essential oil that we carry. Many are body safe scents, but some are not considered safe for prolonged skin contact.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Color Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: How Do I Color Melt and Pour Soap?

We have soap dye, soap colorants, and powdered herbs that can be used to color your homemade soaps. The soap dyes are great for solid color soaps, but tend to bleed when used in layered soap. Also, the white soap base will provide a more pastel color and the clear soap will give a more true color. The FUN Soap Colorants are vibrant colors that are more true in all soap bases. Lastly, the natural form of coloring soaps is cosmetic herbs, which are perfect for a rustic or natural look. Just be aware that herbs can oxidize over time and cause discoloration of the soap.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Soap Frosting Setup on My Melt and Pour Soap?Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: Why Won’t My Soap Frosting Setup on My Melt and Pour Soap?

If you are making cupcake soap wholesale, then the frosting is a pretty big deal. You are going to want to use the whipped soap base, melt and pour soap, and vegetable glycerin. The soap base allows the frosting to harden on the cupcake, while the vegetable glycerin allows for a little flexibility.  If you are curious and thinking, “How do I make melt and pour soap frosting?”, then check out our Soap Frosting Recipe to see how we make the frosting for our soap cupcakes. While the recipe goes into more detail, basically it is equal parts of mp soap base and whipped soap base with 5% of vegetable glycerin and fragrance oil all whipped into a frosting consistency.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: I Would Like to Know If Most Recipes are Showing Oils Measured in Weight Ounces Or in Fluid Ounces?

In our soap recipes we will use weight ounces. We do this because weight ounces are more accurate than fluid ounces. So, we highly recommend weighing your ingredients using a gram scale. This will allow you to be precise in your measurements and prevent accidental mix ups.

Common Melt and Pour Soap Questions: What is the Best Way to Wrap Melt and Pour Soap?

There are a few different ways that you can package your finished soaps. We prefer to use shrink wrap, but you can use ziplock bags, or a decorative box.
