Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath SaltsBubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts Recipe

The best time of the year is almost here! Spending time with family and exchanging gifts is always a huge part of the holidays. We at Natures Garden wanted to bring some joy to the holiday season this year and show you some fun recipes that you can create with your family! Our Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts recipe is the perfect Christmas craft to make for yourself, a family member, or a friend. These bath salts smell minty and refreshing while leaving your skin feeling super soft and silky. What could be better than that? Let’s get started on making these Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!

Dead Sea SaltDead Sea Salt

In this recipe, you will be using Natures Garden’s Dead Sea Salt High Minerals Fine Ground salt. Dead Sea Salt is a dry, white crystal. This type of salt is named after the Dead Sea, which is found in Israel. The Dead Sea is made up of 29% salt, compared to a 4% salt content in oceans. It is known both for the health and medicinal benefits it brings, as well as the therapeutic effects and benefits it has. Each of these come from the minerals Dead Sea Salt consists of.

Benefits of Dead Sea Salt

Many properties and minerals that are beneficial to the human body can be found in Dead Sea Salt. These are magnesium, zinc, calcium, bromide, and potassium. Magnesium can help combat aging and stress and can calm the nervous system. Zinc is an anti-inflammatory, which soothes skin and helps reduce itching and any inflammation. Calcium can prevent water retention and increase circulation in the body. Bromide helps to reduce built up muscle retention. Lastly, potassium can provide energy to the body.

These minerals make it possible for Dead Sea Salt to be used in many different cosmetic products: soap bars, salt scrubs, bath bombs, air fresheners, and bath salts, which is what we will be discussing today. It is great for skin care treatment as well, including eczema, acne, psoriasis, and wrinkles. Natures Garden sells many other salts to make products from, including Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, and Hawaiian black salt. Now that you have a better understanding of the type of salt that will be used in this recipe, we can get into more details of the other ingredients involved.

Diamond Clear Melt Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapPour Soap

Another ingredient that we will be working with is the one of our mp soap bases. Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap is made up of 99.5% glycerin and coconut oil that has been purely deodorized and doubly distilled. These ingredients ensure that it is highly moisturizing with superior lathering qualities. All of our soap is gluten free, are not tested on animals, and do not contain any sort of animal fats. This soap is extremely easy to work with because all you have to do is melt it, add fragrance, add color, pour into molds, and take them out once they have cooled.

 

Reindeer Poo Fragrance OilReindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

Our Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil is a scent that is original to Natures Garden.  This is one of our best selling fragrances! Since Christmas time is coming up, this is a great scent to add to your creations to bring in the true feeling of the season. It is a complex note fragrance, which means that there are multiple layers to the scents that it emits. The opposite of complex note fragrances are single note fragrances, such as strawberry. A single note fragrance has only one scent throughout it, with no variation between layers, which is very unlike this one. The top notes of Reindeer Poo are apples and pears. The middle notes you will experience are eucalyptus, pine, and geranium. The base notes of this fragrance include vanilla, cedar wood, and patchouli. Eucalyptus and pine really give off the smell of a Christmas tree and are the most prominent in this oil. When they are all combined, it creates a holiday-filled scentsation.

Ingredients Found At Natures Garden:

BUBBLING REINDEER POO BATH SALTS RECIPE

Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Mixing Bowls (3)
Mixing Spoon
Spatula
Microwave
Cake Pan
Wax Paper

Total Recipe Weights:

120 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
186 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate- SCI
744 grams Dead Sea Salt
52 grams Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil
10 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorants
6 drops Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant

Before you start on making this recipe, it is important to make sure you have a clean and sanitized work area. Also wash your hands and sanitize all of your packaging materials. We also suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Preparing the Melt and Pour SoapPreparing the Melt and Pour Soap

Preparing our melt and pour soap is the first thing we are going to do for this recipe. We want to color it brown in order for it to be used as the poo portion of our final product. Use a scale to weigh out 120 grams of the diamond clear melt and pour soap. Then, you are going to melt the soap base in the microwave in 30 second intervals, until it is in a liquid state.  Once it has had enough time to fully melt, add ten drops of the black oxide colorant and six drops of the brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Our soap colorants do not take too much of an application to create the pigment you are looking for. In fact, 1/2 ounce of our liquid soap colorants will cover ten pounds of soap! After it has been added, stir your new mixture to incorporate the colorants fully.

Incorporating Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance OilIncorporating Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

Next, you are going to add six grams of the Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil. Then, once again, mix everything together to blend the fragrance oil. Let’s get into the specific properties of this fragrance!

Pour the Soap Into Your MoldPour the Soap Into Your Mold

Now, we are going to pour the melted soap base, in a thin layer, either onto a pan that is lined with wax paper or into a silicone mold.  We decided to use the four cavities of the silicone 4 loaf soap mold.  Allow the soap enough time to get mostly setup.  You will need to give it time to set up without waiting too long, or it will no longer be warm.

A Variety of Molds

There are so many different molds to choose from at Natures Garden! If you wanted to make this recipe even more fun, you could use something besides the silicone 4 loaf soap mold to let your soap form in, such as embeds. We sell some different molds that can make this recipe even better for the holidays! Some of the options that we have are our Christmas Tree and Bulbs Embed Mold, Small Cross Embed Mold, Ornament Embed Mold, and our Gingerbread Man Mold Market Molds. Using any one of these molds could take these bath salts or other candle and body product recipes you are creating to the next level! We have many other non-holiday molds to choose from as well, you can find all of our soap molds here.

Shaping the MP SoapShaping the Soap

Now, use your hands to rip the molded soap into strips that are approximately ½” x 3”. We would not suggest using a knife to slice the soap because you do not want it to look too perfect or pristine. By ripping it, it looks more natural. After you have ripped your soap into these strips, roll them up and place them between the palms of your hands. Then, roll them between the palms of your hands rapidly to give them the look of natural poo. Keep repeating this process until all of your soap has been used.

Creating the Powdered Snow PortionCreating the Powdered Snow Portion

Finally, we will create the powdered portion of this recipe! First, you will need two bowls.  One will remain white in color, while the other will be colored blue.  To make the powdered portions, start by adding 372 grams of Dead Sea Salt to each bowl. Then, add 23 grams of Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil. Finally, you will need to add 93 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate to each bowl. This is a sodium salt ester or a fatty acid that derives from coconut oil. It creates a wetness, it solubilizes oils, and reduces surface tension. It can also be used to help with the property of foaming, which makes this product helpful.

Add the Blue Colorant to the Bath SaltsAdd the Blue Colorant to the Bath Salts

Next, you are going to add four grams of the Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant.  Use your hands to combine the contents of each bowl separately. Start with the bowl that will remain white in color. Mix each of the bowls until all of the contents are fully mixed and ensure that each of them are free of any clumps.

Incorporating the Reindeer Poo Melt and Pour SoapIncorporating the Reindeer Poo Melt and Pour Soap

Now, we will add to our mixture the reindeer poo that we rolled out and formed.  Make sure that you save a few of these pieces for the top of the jars when the bath salts recipe is completed. You will want these for the final look to turn out perfectly!

 

Finishing the Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!Finishing the Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!

Finally, we will begin adding our mixture to our jars. This recipe creates enough product to fill four 8 ounce jars. This is a perfect amount of bath salts because you can give three as gifts and keep one for yourself! Begin by scooping a layer of white powder mixture into your first jar. Then, add a layer of blue.  Continue layering until you have filled your jar.  Lastly, place a few of the pieces of poo on top.  Then, move on, filling your remaining jars.

Your homemade bubbling reindeer poo bath salts are now ready for you, friends, and family to use!  When you are ready to use them, simply place a few scoops from the jar under your warm running bath water, it will break apart and create a bubble bath!

Reindeer Poo CandleMore Fun With Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

If you enjoy making this bath salts recipe, we have a couple more things that you can make using Natures Garden Reindeer Poo fragrance oil! The first is our Reindeer Poo Candle Recipe, which has two layers to it. The first layer is a blue dyed palm wax, while the second is Joy Wax that resembles the white snow. To top it off, we added reindeer poo along with cute little reindeer embeds! This craft can be fun to make either for yourself or it can be given as a gift.

Reindeer Poo Scented Play DoughThe second recipe that you can try out different from the bath salts is our Scented Play Dough Recipe. This could be a great activity to do with families and children around the holidays. It will create five colored and scented play dough balls to play and make crafts with. The colors we used are red, blue, cream, green, and yellow. The scents that we used with fragrance oils are Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin, Jack Frost, Snowman Balls, Mrs. Claus Cookies, and Reindeer Poo. We hope that these give you a better idea of the different and fun ways that this fragrance oil can be used for the holiday season!

Bay Rum FragranceBay Rum Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Ahoy, mateys! Rum is commonly thought of as the drink of choice of pirates. And why wouldn’t it be? They made careers off of rum-running: transporting alcohol overseas to colonies where drinking was prohibited. Pirates often consumed rum as bumbo- a drink made from rum, water, sugar, and nutmeg or cinnamon.

Bay Rum, more specifically, is a product with high-alcohol content made in the Caribbean using rum and the leaves or berries of the appropriately named bay rum tree. It’s often used in aftershave, cologne, and lotions (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, you can use this fragrance oil to make your own). Not as pirate-y, but I already wrote most of this post with pirates in mind, so I’m gonna leave it as is. And surely, pirates had to shave their faces, too? (Unless their pirate name had the word “beard” in it.) Why not with bay rum-scented products?

What Does Bay Rum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

It be a spicy, cultural blend of crushed cloves, cinnamon sticks, patchouli, and crisp pine needles, with a sweet orange freshness.

Top Notes:  orange, apple
Mid Notes:  cinnamon, clove, cool mint
Base Notes:  pine, cedarwood, vanilla, musk, patchouli

How Do Our Customers Use Bay Rum Fragrance Oil?

Black candle colorant only comes in liquid dye form. Don’t color your candles with crayons unless ye be lookin’ fer trouble–it’ll clog the wick!

Robust room scents! This seafaring scent comes across nice and strong in arrroma beads and the maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this complex accord in bath oils, bath gels, and soaps is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance caused slight acceleration of trace, but no ricing, no separation, and discolored to a light butterscotch. Scent retention was wonderful. This fragrance has a 0.3% vanillin content, so it may slightly discolor your bath and body products. If ye’d like to defend against this, try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use black and blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. You can also try activated charrrcoal as a natural black soap colorant. Never color ye bath and body products with candle dye- ye’ll color yerself!

Balsam and Cedar FragranceBalsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We already met our buddy the balsam fir- a.k.a. the Christmas Tree. So what’s the deal with cedar? Cedar wood is used in all sorts of amazing applications from building ships, houses, log cabins, fences, furniture, canoes, and even guitars, to bug repellent. Smells great, too! California incense-cedar is the primary type of wood used for making pencils. This kind of explains why I loved holding pencils under my nose as a kid- cedar wood smells fantastic. And pencil mustaches are cool, too. :{o (That’s a mustachioed smiley. Try holding a pencil between your upper lip and your nose to see what I’m talking about: pencil mustache.)

What Does Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam.  This fragrance is composed of top notes of  orange, raspberry, and plum;  middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth;  base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This fresh forest fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is gel wax compatible! That means you could make some gel candles with embeds (check out our Christmas tree embed molds). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this woodsy aura in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our candle coloring recommendations are 5 drops green plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of green and brown color block into your melted wax. Never color your candles with crayons; it will clog the wick.

Room scents! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sophisticated scent in potpourri and incense is 50%. It comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this complex accord in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance caused slight acceleration in CP soap, but no ricing and no separation. It retained a very strong scent and cured bars discolored to a lavender/tan color. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0%, but there are over 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that can lead to the discoloration of products. Products with high vanillin contents tend to discolor to varying shades of brown, but this one has a tiny bit of purple (I personally think it’s a pretty cute color). Our coloring recommendations are to use green and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. If you’d like to go for a more earthy tone and add some extra nutrients- check out our natural soap colorants. Just be sure to read the descriptions because different soap processes cause different reactions with your herbs and can affect the intended color of your soap. Also- feel free to check out our tree-shaped soap molds!

Body products without the bath! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this interesting aroma in lotions and body-sprays is 5%. It performed perfectly in perfumes.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this evergreen aura in cleaning products is 5%.

Autumn Woods FragranceAutumn Woods Fragrance Oil Spotlight

It’s almost Autumn and I am elated! Fall is by far my favorite season. One of the best things about this (soon-to-be) time of year is the changing colors and falling of the leaves. And what’s better than taking a walk through the woods on a brisk autumn day? I love the crunch, crunch, crunch of the leaves underneath my feet. It’s also easier to breath. Take a deep breath of that cool, crisp autumn air and you basically have this fantastic fall fragrance!

What Does Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is a walk in the woods with the smell of crisp leaves under foot and fresh pine with berries falling off the trees.

Top Notes:  Lemon, Orange, Lime, Blackberries
Mid Notes:  Carnation, Rose, Muguet
Base Notes: Pine, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Eucalyptus leaves

How Do Our Customers Use Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil?

All kinds of creative ways! Firstly, they make delightful decorative candles. This earthy aura performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 4 drops of yellow plus 1 drop of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of yellow and brown color block into your melted wax. As cool and creative as it may sound, do NOT color your candles with crayons–it will clog the wick!

Secondly, they make some super room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this full-bodied fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%. This autumn aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. We’ve also got an awesome Autumn Leaves Potpourri Recipe made with Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil, cute little leaf molds, and shiny gold mica pigment! A beautiful fall decoration that exudes a wonderful scent.

If you’d like to do some autumn-cleaning, the maximum recommended usage percentage for this seasonal scent in cleaning products is 5%.

Thirdly, bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this complex accord results in no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and nice, strong scent retention. It discolors CP soap to a tan color. This is possibly due to the 1.84% vanillin content of the fragrance. Vanillin has the tendency to discolor bath and body products. If you’d prefer, you can try to combat this with Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, but please remember you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use yellow and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. You can also try natural soap colorants for some truly earthy tones, but pay close attention to the information on the page- some soapmaking processes can alter the desired color of your final soap. Experimenting is always okay! But never color your bath and body products with candle colorants- that is one experiment to avoid.

And finally, body products outside of the bath! This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body-sprays it 3.95%.

Wear this fragrance on your body or use it to fill rooms with scent- you will certainly feel all the fragrant fun of fall!
