99 Ways to Use Lanolin Ways to Use Lanolin

Lanolin is one of those products that you don’t think about, but it is in probably some of the most popular skin care products around. It can also be found in cosmetics, first-aid salves and believe it or not in some industrial grade products such as lubricants and rust-proof coatings.

What’s amazing about this stuff is that it is all natural! It is an oil that comes from the wool of sheep and is nature’s “raincoat” for the animals. Lanolin protects them from all the elements around them; from the dampness of rain and snow to the drying effects of the sun. One of the things that I like about lanolin is that even though it is naturally derived from the wool of sheep, it in no way harms them! It is done cruelty-free! In today’s world of animal’s rights that is a pretty important factor!

Lanolin has the amazing ability to hold up to 400 times its weight in water which means, not only is it a super-moisturizer, but it locks that moisture in and will give you baby soft, supple skin.  Lanolin easily absorbs into the skin, but keep in mind, a little goes a long way!  We have below 9 recipes that incorporate Lanolin in the pure form that is an amazing ingredient to blend into lotions or balms, and Lanolin Oil USP Liquid which is less viscous and is wonderful for soaps and shampoos. We at Nature’s Garden hope you enjoy creating some of these for your family, friends, clients or customers! So here you are, 9 ways to use Lanolin in your creations.

 

99 ways to Use Lanolin Beard Balm Recipe ways to Use Lanolin Beard Balm Recipe

Our first recipe is the perfect balm for your men’s line of bath and body products. Beards and mustaches are incredibly popular among guys today. In many cases, you see more hair on their face than on their head, which may mean something, and I haven’t been able to figure it out yet. At any rate, I do have an idea that their beards can get as unruly head of hair! Beard Balm is a perfect way to tame that facial hair!  With skin healthy oils and butters such as, jojoba oil, olive oil and shea butter and lanolin, their skin will be soft and moisturized as well as their beards and mustaches. Then, add in some Cedarwood Virginia Essential Oil for that woodsy, masculine scent and you will have yourself a best seller among your clients with facial hair!

The first step to having a good beard is to have a good soap. After all, beard is hair and the first step to having good hair is to have a good shampoo, right?

Our Beard Soap recipe is a good start to beard maintenance. It’s a hot process soap that uses liquid lanolin USP which has the same benefits as the lanolin that comes in the more solid form. You also have the nourishing oils and butters of jojoba, sweet almond, and cocoa butter, to just name a few. Your beard will feel soft and moisturized. Not only does this beard soap clean without stripping but it hydrates your beard, and it will do the same to your skin beneath. We used our Gurjun Balsam Essential Oil for a soft, aromatic fragrance that smells woodsy with a tiny bit of sweetness.

Here’s a “handy” way to keep your hands moisturized and protected without the mess of carrying around a bottle of lotion. Our Hydrating Hand Stick is perfect for keeping in your purse, pocket, or even your kids’ backpacks! With skin happy ingredients like shea butter, olive oil and lanolin oil USP liquid, you can be sure your hands will always be shielded from the bitter winter elements. They will stay soft and hydrated and since the ingredients are easily absorbed into your skin you will not have that greasy feeling some hand lotions leave behind. We’ve chosen our Nectarine & Mint fragrance Oil that has a citrus scent with a light touch of mint. A perfect scent that does not become too overpowering.

You would be surprised at how popular shaving soap really is. In all honesty, using shampoo on your beard is a big no-no! Shampoo is designed to strip all the oils and dirt from the hair.  That is all fine and good for your hair, but it’s not so fine and good for your beard. A dry beard is an itchy beard. You will want your beard moisturized and soft, with all those important skin oils still intact!

Our Cold Process Shaving Soap is the perfect gentle wash to keep your beard happy and healthy looking. We’ve used shea butter, apricot kernel oil and lanolin Oil USP liquid to help keep your beard hydrated and soft. Bentonite clay, which is not just for facial masks, gives this soap a nice glide to the lather and helps if you have oily skin. We’ve chosen our Black Ops fragrance oil that smells like the popular men’s cologne. It has a nice masculine scent of citrus followed by a nice woodsy undertone.

Our Pooch Smooch Solid Shampoo Bar recipe won’t make getting Fido into the tub easier, but it will make the process of soaping them up a little less crazy! With these shampoo bars shaped like cute doggy bones, this is a gentle and easy soap recipe that uses our Oatmeal melt and pour soap, some skin beneficial Vitamin E and Lanolin Oil USP liquid. Your furry friend’s skin and fur will be moisturized, soft and have a nice, clean feel to their fur. Our Pooch Smooch fragrance oil that inspired this recipe has a light scent of melons and cucumbers. How cute would these look in your line of doggy care products? I say they would look adorable!

Feet have it hard, wouldn’t you agree? You stand on them, walk on them, run on them, stick them into heels, tennis shoes, flip-flops. Or you just go barefoot!

After a long day, no matter what it is you do, give this foot balm a try!

Using 200 Varieties of NG Fragrances

fragrance oils1.     What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Taleda Giallanza – Bliss Body & Bath ~ Scentsational Sundries for Mind Body & Spirit

2.      Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I’ve been making body products for my massage business for about 10yrs, starting with body butters, adding salt scrubs, sugar scrubs, black sea mud for detox wraps and sea algae toning wraps. Making the products I used on my clients was inevitable; I didn’t like the feel of name brand creams/butters/oils or the lengthy list of ingredients including a lot of preservatives and chemicals.  Also, I found it embarrassing to ask my clients if they’d care to wipe down before they dressed and left; that was a waste of my money and their time. So I began teaching myself the fun but precise art of crafting homemade body products for use on my massage patrons. My aromatic butters, the vast variety thereof and knowing they wouldn’t have to wipe off greasy oily goo from the bodies or risk staining their clothes was the seal on the deal. Their appreciation of my efforts encouraged me; when I fell into making many of my products Organic & Vegan word spread and I found more and more appointments booked via referrals. Their obvious approval of my Path took a turn when they began asking “Can you make me a jar of this butter? How much would you charge for a big jar of this scrub? I simply love your scentsational sundries!” And so, here I am using their words as part of my business name byline.

3.      What products do you make and sell?  Well, the question really is: What DON’T I make and sell!!  I don’t do CP or any other type of soap except M&P. I want too but my love affair with M&P hasn’t run its course and quite frankly I simply don’t have any room left for supplies!  Let’s see we’ll start with the bath/shower then move to the body starting with the head: all types of M&P soap, bath bombs, bath bomb melts, shower fizzers, bubble bath, bath oil, bath milks, 2 types of hair masques, for the face: 4 face cleansers, 4 toners, 4 serums, 3 day creams, 3 night creams, 4 different bases for about 200 different (so far) body butters, butter salt scrubs, butter sugar scrubs, body mud masques, body sea algae masques, yogurt body puddings, super skin conditioners with a lanolin base, heavy duty foot balms, cracked foot creams, foot baths/soaks, body splashes or spritzers, men’s shaving soap mugs, men’s face splash, Mother Earth Face Powders (most of the powders come from Nature’s Garden), Cleo Milk Powders, lip gloss flavored, non-flavored, Aromatherapy Oils, Feng Shui Oils and another type but I’m not telling!  I’m learning how to make bronzers as Spring is here and Summer is coming!  Did I leave anything out? LOL … having a sense of humor is vital in our business otherwise what’s the point?
 
4.      What are your business goals?  To rely on my body product business as my only source of income which means being successful enough that I may retire from Massage Therapy.

5.      What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  Well, I counted all the Fragrance Oils and Essential Oils I have, (I try to keep a current list), and the last date was March 6th, 2013 ending total of 260. I’d safely say that 200 of them came from Nature’s Garden, about 30 of them I blended NG’s FOs to create my own blends and the rest from another supplier that I of course blended up with NGs FOs to make even more aromas. You simply can’t have too many, in my humble opinion anyway.  Nearly all the A-Z powders I have (Botanical, Clays, Foods, Fruits, Herbs, Muds) came from Nature’s Garden.  I LOVE the Yogurt Base – I call it Pudding – because to me when I whip mine up, that’s exactly what it looks like and feels like, and my clients agree.  The only thing that hasn’t worked out for me is when I fall in love with one of your FOs and then you discontinue it – I am left wondering what the heck to do!
 
Your Website: I don’t have a website per say at the moment I do own my domain name thru GoDaddy.  Of course I’m Trademarked. I mainly sell thru my massage spa room, thru Etsy and thru word of mouth that trickles around Facebook.  I just discovered Storenvy and I am selling there; I started a Blog thru Google and WordPress and my massage website also is home to my products. I am really all over the place, like FOs, you simply can’t be in too many places! Sadly due to time, I haven’t developed any place I am selling to its full potential; that also is a goal of mine.
