Homemade Fall Soaps for the Perfect Morning Pick Me Up!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy.

Let’s face it. Mondays suck. The solution? That one’s tough. But a little morning pick-me-up can go a long way towards perking up your mood. While these homemade fall soaps aren’t going to magically make your workload a breeze, they will bring a smile to your face. Plus they’re a great little reminder that sometimes it’s the little things that can turn it all around.

Homemade Fall Soaps for the Perfect Morning Pick Me Up!

While my Mondays aren’t as insane as they used to be when I worked for someone else, they can still just as challenging. Don’t get me wrong. Self-employment has its merits and its perks. However, I still have weekly goals, challenges and deadlines that I have to meet to keep advertisers. Otherwise, I don’t make the money I need to live off of. And just like you, when you’re sick but don’t have paid sick days, I’m typing away at the computer planning social media or struggling through processing photos for my next DIY.

In fact, last week I had a fibro flare up. This was followed by a return of TMJ. Both of these things are aggravated by stress but also in turn cause more stress. So I had to find something to help break the cycle. In the end, it’s you all – and some of my long time fans – that reminded me that it’s all worth it. And that, no, I’m not just writing for myself but also people that I relate to and that relate to me. Browsing all of the new homemade falls soaps out now on Etsy – that brought it all back home.

The best homemade soaps for fall! These lovely artisan soaps are inspired by the colors and scents of fall and are the perfect Monday morning pick me up to start off your week!

As a former seller on Etsy myself (and no stranger to farmer’s markets either!) I wanted to share some of my favorite fall soaps that I discovered. These amazing soaps are not only inspiring, but the artisans who crafted these homemade fall soaps are also small businesses owners. Perhaps like yourself. So I hope you’ll take the time to check out the creative soapmaking ideas they developed to celebrate the season as well as support those artists and soapmakers you love in their endeavor by making a purchase.

I hope you enjoyed this small collection of some of my favorite homemade soaps for fall. I am continually impressed by how far soapmaking has come since Etsy was in beta when I first joined way back in 2005.

The collective of soapmaking suppliers, soapmakers and soapmaking groups has since grown and expanded into a wonderfully supportive community that’s not only helped women and men delve into a new hobby or business, but it’s also shown how amazing and creative we can be when we all work together and support one another. I thank everyone of you for your myriad of inspiration over the years.

What You’ll Need:

Darice 7 oz. Glass Craft Jar (1095-98) with Metal Lid
aluminum foil
White Original Sculpey Oven Bake Clay
clear acrylic sealer
E6000 glue
pottery tools (optional)
craft paints
craft paint brushes

Begin by crumpling up aluminum foil into an apple or pumpkin shape in the size you’d like your pumpkin jar topper to be.

Once you are satisfied with the basic shape, knead your polymer clay until it’s soft and pliable. Next, roll out a large circle of clay, about 1/4″ thick.

Shape the clay around the aluminum foil. Cut out sections as needed in order to remove excess clay. Blend the seams together so it’s a solid layer of clay over the foil.

Once the entire ball of foil is covered with clay smooth the sides and add a pumpkin stem.

Use a potter’s rib or similar to add indentations around the diameter of your clay pumpkin.

Next, shape 1/4″ thick clay around the outside lid to your jar. Create a slight indentation in the clay for your pumpkin to rest in.

Leaving the clay attached to the jar lid, bake the lid and the pumpkin together in a 275°F oven for about 15 minutes on a baking sheet. Then remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

DIY Pressed Eyeshadow #4 Mossy Apple

Ingredients:

4 scoops sericite
2 scoops titanium dioxide
14 scoops apple moss green mica
4 scoops cellini blue mica
7 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
7 drops dimethicone

Instructions:

To make your first DIY pressed eyeshadow color, first select the shade you’d like to create. In addition to the eyeshadow recipe ingredients – I purchased my micas from Brambleberry – you’ll also need some .15CC scoops for all of the dry measurements. You’ll be using graduated transfer pipette to measure out the dimethicone and rubbing alcohol in drops.

You’ll also need some eyeshadow pans. Bambi and I used 3 mL silver plastic jars with hinged lids and clear windows from SKS Bottle & Packaging for our DIY pressed eyeshadow singles. However, SKS also offers stylish 3 mL black polystyrene make-up compacts with crystal clear plastic hinged lids as well.

Once you have all of your ingredients, you’re ready to begin.

Begin with the sericite, add the number of scoops called for in a small dish or shallow bowl. (My scoops were not exact. I used slightly rounded scoops for each ingredient.)

Follow with the micas and/or other colorants, then mix well using a toothpick or other small utensil.

Take the Brave Pretty Challenge.

Once you’ve evenly mixed the dry ingredients, use a transfer pipette to add the rubbing alcohol and mix well. Follow with the dimethicone. Mix the eyeshadow with a toothpick until  it is evenly coated with the wet ingredients.

Now fill your eyeshadow pan with the shadow, piling it into a mound. Gently press the shadow down with your finger just until the eyeshadow is about even with the top of the eyeshadow pan.

Next, wrap a piece of thin linen or a paper towel over a quarter.

Press the wrapped quarter on top of the shadow into your cavity with as much force as possible, then gently remove the quarter. Allow the eyeshadow to dry and then it’s done!

DIY Pressed Eyeshadow: Four Color Recipes for Back to School! Back to school is right around the corner. Whether you have teenage girls headed back to school or you're simply just ready for fall, you'll have a blast creating your own DIY pressed eyeshadow colors to kick off the new season!

Notes & Tips:

For cream eyeshadows simply add more dimethicone to suit. You’ll want to start small and test the shadow as you add more dimethicone. For loose eyeshadows, simply omit the alcohol and dimethicone all together and combine the ingredients in a small eyeshadow sifter jar.

You can also scent your DIY pressed eyeshadow pans. Simply add 1-2 drops of skin safe fragrance oil to the recipe and add in after the alcohol!

Don’t want to use dimethicone? Try vegetable glycerin instead! Alternately, if you don’t want to make your own eyeshadow but would like to support someone who does, you can purchase artisan made eyeshadows on Etsy here.

Mermaid Makeup Brushes! High quality and deep cleaning fibers are used on these mermaid makeup brushes for lasting performance, fitting and protecting your sensitive skin!

Fall Bath and Beauty Recipes

I used several ingredients from the For Soap’s Sake October box to make two fall bath and beauty recipes. I used the dark cocoa butter and copper penny mica to make a fall lip tint and the caramel coffee fragrance oil to make a scented dry oil body spray one evening this past week with my friend Bambi. You can find those fall bath and beauty recipes below.

Fall Lip Tint Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.3 oz. dark cocoa butter
.3 oz. beeswax
.15 oz. (76° melt point) coconut oil
.1 oz. lanolin
.25 oz. sweet almond oil
1 Tablespoon copper penny mica
2 mL lavender essential oil
12 drops ginger or fresh ginger essential oil
10 drops cocoa absolute

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this recipe.

Learn how to make this copper tinted lip tint for fall! These make wonderful homemade gifts or wedding favors. Or add them to your product line for your online shop, Etsy shop, or to sell at farmer's markets and craft fairs!

Begin by weighing out the dark cocoa butter and beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power or less until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the coconut oil and lanolin and stir into the melted beeswax and cocoa butter. If necessary, gently reheat the ingredients again to ensure they are fully melted. Stir well to ensure even distribution. (If you prefer not to use lanolin you can substitute more coconut oil for the lanolin or use shea butter! For a vegan lip tint you can also substitute the beeswax with .15 oz. of carnauba wax. You do need to use less carnauba wax as it is a harder wax than beeswax.)

Now weigh out the sweet almond oil and stir into the melted lip tint ingredients, again reheating if necessary.

Next, using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the lavender essential oil and add into the lip tint. Then use fresh pipettes or droppers to add the ginger essential oil and the cocoa absolute. Mix well.

Using a tablespoon measuring spoon, measure out the copper penny mica and stir into your lip tint. Mix well.

Now slowly pour the melted lip tint into your containers, stirring the mixture after each pour.

For this fall lip tint recipe Bambi and I evenly filled six small metal slide top tins. I received my metal tins from SKS Bottle & Packaging which you can find here.

Once the lip tints have set up completely, slide on the lids for each tin then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

For my labels I purchased feather clipart from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy, then used a Word program to create my labels. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.) Then simply print your newly created labels onto label sheets – I get mine from World Label – and apply to the lids of your tins.

If you’re making your fall bath and beauty recipes to sell (for small commercial use) and want to use the same clipart as I have but without credit, you would need to purchase a commercial license from the creator.

You’ll also want to make sure you label your lip tints appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

This caramel coffee dry body oil spray recipe is the perfect scent for fall! Not only does it smell delectable, but this non-greasy dry oil also moisturizes skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth.

Caramel Coffee Dry Oil Body Spray Recipe

Ingredients:

3.8 oz. Cyclomethicone
3.8 oz. grape seed oil (or other liquid at room temperature carrier oil of choice)
.25 oz. caramel coffee fragrance oil

Instructions:

Weigh out the cyclomethicone, grape seed oil and fragrance oil into a medium glass Pyrex measuring cup. Stir to combine thoroughly, then use a funnel to pour your dry oil body spray evenly into two 4 oz. silver aluminum metal bullet round bottles. Screw on the sprayer top of your choice, then label as desired. (I received my aluminum bottles and sprayers from Container & Packaging Supply who you can find online here.

For the dry oil body spray pictured above, I also used the feather clipart I purchased from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy.

To create your labels simply sketch out your drawing onto blank sticker paper, using the bottle as a guide so you get the label size right. The color your drawing in with permanent markers or your other favorite medium. Cut out the label.

Now take a clear or crystal clear sticker label and cut the label so it’s slightly larger than your image. Remove the backing from the clear sticker label and place it on top of your image so the image is fully covered. Trim off the excess label. (Alternately, if your labels are small enough, you can also do the same thing with packing tape.) Now adhere the label you just created to your dry body oil spray bottle. And you’re done!

Again, you’ll need to label your dry oil body sprays appropriately to meet state and federal laws if you plan to sell them.

Caffeinated Soap Recipe

What else can I make?

Need ideas for other fall bath and beauty recipes you can make using ingredients from the October For Soap’s Sake box? You can use the caffeine extract to make a DIY anti-puff eye roller, a DIY caffeinated soap with a coffee scrub center, and a DIY orange coconut coffee scrub. (You can also use the vanilla stabilizer to keep your caffeinated soap, above, from turning brown.)

You can use the marshmallow root powder to create herbal facial cleansing grains, glycerin cold process shaving soap, handmilled whiskey and tobacco caramel soap, cold process vanilla and fig shaving soap, cold process natural lanolin shaving soap, and cold process patchouli granola crunch soap.

The bronze brown mica can be used to create fall melt and pour soaps, lemon and ginger tinted lip balm, stamped cold process candied orange soaps, and stamped melt and pour conversation heart soaps.
