Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub RecipeChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe

Today we will be showing you how to make a chocolate bath butter scrub recipe.  This recipe was inspired by a cookies and cream parfait recipe that we found from Homemade Hooplah.  They looked so delicious, I just had to turn them into some sort of bath and body product.  This way, I could have chocolate indulgence with none of the calories.  So. I decided to make a chocolate bath butter scrub using Natures Garden’s Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe:  Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Whipped Soap Base
Organic Cocoa Powder
Vegetable Glycerin
Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
Epsom Salt
Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil

70/400 White Straight Smooth Lids

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe:  A Closer Look at Some of the Ingredients We Will Be Using

Before we begin, we will take a closer look at some of the ingredients we will be using today.  Our chocolate soap recipe is a fluffy whipped soap scented with our Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil. Below, is an in depth look at the key ingredients in this soap recipe.

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance OilChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil

The first ingredient we will talk about is the scent.  Better Than Sex Cake fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells like German chocolate cake that is blended with semi-sweet chocolate chips and laced with crunchy toffee bits to create this decadent treat.  Vanilla creme and butterscotch syrup create a luscious undertone, while hints of almond and coconut complete the yummy blend.  An NG Original Fragrance!

Top Notes:  almond, coconut
Mid Notes:  toffee, chocolate
Base Notes:  butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate cake

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Whipped Soap BaseChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Whipped Soap Base

In this recipe, the whipped soap base is used to create the creamy layers of our bath butter.  This soap base can be used to create your own bath frosting, shaving soap, foaming body butter, and foaming sugar scrubs.  Simply whip our base with a mixer, add scent and colorant, and spoon into jars.  Our rich, luxurious-feeling whipped soap base leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.  This whipped soap base is bright white in color and does not substantially deflate after packaging.

When using fragrances in the whipped soap base, we suggest using 1-5% of a body safe fragrance oil in your finished product.  Additional carrier oils can be added to this base, but we do not suggest adding any more than 5%.  When making foaming sugar scrub, please note that some of your sugar will dissolve in the base.  Fragrance oils can and may discolor your finished product.  When using fragrance oils with a vanillin content higher than 1%, you may want to consider using vanilla white stabilizer to reduce discoloration.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Organic Cocoa PowderChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Powder

Now, let’s talk about the natural colorant we used.  Cocoa powder is a wonderful brown colorant for soap, lotion, and other cosmetics.  In fact, I personally use it in my natural makeup recipes.  Organic cocoa powder is a fabulous addition to your cosmetics and soap recipes.  Cacao beans are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E and pantothenic acid.  They are also rich in the following minerals:  magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium.  Cocao beans contain caffeine, which is actually beneficial to the skin.  How does chocolate lip balm sound to you?  Chocolate facial masks?  Yummy!

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vegetable GlycerinChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin

We used the vegetable glycerin in the recipe to help mix our cocoa powder into our soap base without clumping.  We often use it when using natural powdered colorants to recipes for this reason.  However, vegetable glycerin is also used in other types of recipes.  For example, it can be added to melt and pour soap.  When added to melt and pour soap, it will give the soap some flexibility.

Vegetable glycerin is a clear, odorless, sweet-tasting liquid with a thick syrup-like consistency.  It is used in formulations of cosmetics, soaps, shampoo, herbal remedies, toothpaste, lotions, and other household items.  Vegetable glycerin is soluble in both alcohol and water; however insoluble in oil.  Vegetable glycerin is a humectant, which draws moisture to the skin.  It is added to lotions during the water phase in improve the emollience of the product.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: FUN Soap ColorantsChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: FUN Soap Colorants

This soap recipe uses Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants.  In fact, we use two of them.  We use both the brown oxide and the black oxide to color our Epsom salt.  These soap colorants are easy to use and stay true to color even when added to a product.  These vibrant soap colors are my personal favorite to work with when making soap!

So, what exactly are the FUN Soap Colorants?  They are pigments which are dispersed in vegetable glycerin. They come in oxides, aquamarines, and even some neon colors, just to name a few.  No chemical preservatives added.  All of our FUN Soap Colorants are considered to be VEGAN. Using liquid soap pigments which have already been dispersed in vegetable glycerin helps to prevent pigments from clumping in your soap.  All of these soap colorants work well in melt and pour soap, and cold process soap.  They are non-bleeding, perform well in high ph environments, and do not morph during the saponifcation process.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Epsom SaltChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Epsom Salt

Epsom salt can be used in many different products and industries. It can be used for hair care, medicinal purposes, skin care, cosmetics, bath and body products, gardening and cleaning products. It is used as a bath salt to help relieve stress and help to soothe sore muscles.

Many skin care benefits that are associated with the usage of Epsom salt. It is great for exfoliating the skin, smoothing out rough patches, and for preventing wrinkles. It also treats sun burn and helps to get rid of acne. Also, by rubbing it on your skin after taking a shower, it helps to make your skin smooth and silky and also takes away dead skin cells.

Feet ailments can be treated using Epsom salt as well. Soaking your feet in hot water mixed with Epsom salt helps to take away foot odor and foot fungus. It can also help to relieve the problems caused by athlete’s foot and also treats gout.

Epsom salt has many anti-inflammatory properties. Athletes can use it in ice baths after work outs to help with inflammation problems.Facial pores can be treated with Epsom salt as well. It has many exfoliating properties which work hard to give the pores a nice deep clean.

For hair care, adding Epsom salt to conditioners gives the hair extra volume. It also helps to remove excess oils from the hair. You can also make a mixture of water, Epsom salt and lemon juice that when used on the hair before showering, it will help to make hairspray easier to remove.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vanilla White Color StabilizerChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

We used Vanilla White Color Stabilizer in this recipe to prevent our white layer from turning brown.  Vanilla White basically helps to lessen any discoloration that is cause by a vanilla content.  Since the Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil has a vanillin content of 6%, it would certainly discolor our white whipped soap base.

Natures Garden’s Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is a patent pending fragrance technology designed to be added to aqueous bases that have color stability problems resulting from vanillin and other aromatic ingredients which tend to oxidize and cause browning.  For the first time, water based formulas can be stabilized by including a small amount of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Phthalate-Free.

So, what products can Vanilla White be used in?  Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can be used such products as liquid soap bases, bar soap bases, glycerin soap bases, cold process soap, hot process soap, shampoos, conditioners, fabric softeners, detergents, air fresheners, and lotions; essentially any product that is not anhydrous.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped SoapChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped Soap

Will begin by preparing the brown chocolate portion of our bath butter.  This portion will be colored using Natures Garden’s organic cocoa powder.  In addition, we will scent the whipped soap with Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, add 353 grams of the whipped soap base.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped SoapNow, we will prepare our natural brown colorant.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 6 grams of the organic cocoa powder.  Then, to the same bowl, add 34 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix to completely blend the two ingredients.  By mixing our cocoa powder with vegetable glycerin before adding it to the whipped soap base, it will prevent it from clumping.

Next, add the brown colorant you prepared to the whipped soap base.  Then, you will need your hand mixer.  Use your hand mixer to mix the whipped soap base to a frosting-like consistency.

Use your hand mixer to blend the ingredients together.  Keep mixing until you reach that fluffy frosting consistency.  Set this bowl aside as well, we will come back to it too.

Next, we will prepare the Epsom salt.  The Epsom salt will be the center layer in your bath butter.  It will be colored a black brown color.  It is meant to mimic the Oreo cookies in the dessert that inspired this creation.  In a clean bowl, weigh out 170 grams of Epsom salt.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Epsom Salt

 

Now we will begin coloring the Epsom salt.  So, you will need both Natures Garden’s brown oxide and black oxide.  Then, add 4 grams of the black oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 2 grams of the brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant.

 

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Epsom SaltFinally, you will want to wear a pair of gloves.  Then, using your hands, mix the colorants into the Epsom salt.  You want to make sure that the salt is completely colored and you can see no white.  Now, you can set the bowl aside for a moment.

Finally, we will begin packaging the bath butter.  We will be adding a couple of chocolate layers, a couple white layers, and layer of Epsom salt.  So, you will need to have all three bowls in front of you.  You will also want a spoon for each bowl.  In addition, you will need four of the 8 ounce clear jars.  First, we will begin with our chocolate layer.  Add a couple spoonfuls of the chocolate whipped soap to each of your 8 ounce clear jars.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter
Now, add a layer of the white whipped soap to each jar.  This layer should be about half as thick as the previous chocolate layer.  You want to add it directly on top of the chocolate layer.  However, you want to be careful not to get any of the base on the sides of the jar.  If you do, you will be able to see it in the next layer.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter

Our next layer will be the Epsom salt layer.  This layer will contain about 40 grams per jar.  When you initially add this layer it will look like it is too much.  However, once you add the remaining layers on top, it will go down a bit.  So, add about 40 grams of salt to each jar.

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter
Now, simply finish layering your whipped soap.  On top of the Epsom salt, add another layer of white.  Then, a layer of chocolate.  Finally, a dollop of white on top.  Ultimately, you can layer your whipped soap in whatever manner your would like.

Natures Garden StoreNatures Garden Store

Marsha and the staff at Natures Garden have been feverously working away at getting the store ready and in tip top shape.

Earlier this year, we started the intense planning and implementing of a store for our wonderful customers to come into and shop.  This was a feat that was easier said than done.  Through months of planning and strategizing, we were able to create a beautiful store on paper that believe it or not contained every item that Natures Garden currently carries.

Then came the week when all of storage and shelving units were put together.  This also included an electrician, a painter, and a small construction crew.  When they were finished, for the first time we were able to see the Natures Garden store becoming a reality.

Next, it was time to stock shelves.  This is where we are now.   Through immense hard work and dedication, the staff at Natures Garden has been steadily plugging away at stocking, pricing, and creating displays for the store.  And, now after all of this time, we are finally beginning to see light at the end of the store tunnel.

Although the store is still a work in progress so to say, we are getting very close.

Sure, all of Natures Garden products are out and available for purchase; but we are still finalizing some aspects to really knock it out of the park!

The Natures Garden store is currently open and you all are more than welcome to come in and visit.  We still have the fragrance sniffing wall (although it is more of a Fragrance Land), as well as 16 oz, 8 oz, 4 oz, and 1 oz fragrance bottles available to purchase.  All of our soap bases, waxes, butters, oils, molds, and herbs are also out and ready for purchase as well.  We even have our vast array of kits, colorants, flavorings, and essential oils out too and they are all ready for their new crafting home.

One thing is for sure, if you come visit the Natures Garden store, you will not be disappointed.  Just please bear with us as we strive for perfection.
