Unicorn Glitter Butter Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1 oz. refined shea butter
1 oz. fractionated coconut oil
1 oz. sweet almond oil
.25 oz. vegetable glycerin
.25 oz. kokum butter
.25 oz. cera bellina wax
.05 oz. candelilla wax
.10 oz. candy crush fragrance oil
.5 oz. iridescent super sparkle glitter
.1 oz. super pearly white mica
1/4 teaspoon colloidal oatmeal
1/4 teaspoon rose pearl mica
1/4 teaspoon mauvey gem mica
1 mL vitamin E oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the shea butter, kokum butter, cera bellina wax and the candelilla wax. Heat until melted in a double boiler (or in a glass Pyrex measuring cup at 40% power in the microwave) until melted.  Remove from heat.

Weigh out the fractionated coconut oil, glycerin, and sweet almond oil. Stir into the previously melted ingredients.

Next, weigh out the fragrance and stir in. Follow with the vitamin E oil (optional) using a graduated transfer pipette to measure out the amount called for.

Now, using a teaspoon measure, measure out the colloidal oatmeal and the rose pear and mauvey gem micas. (You can substitute these colors for ones of your own if desired. These micas give my unicorn glitter butter the pretty purple tint, but won’t color skin.) Stir into the unicorn glitter butter base.

Finally weigh out the super pearly white mica and the iridescent super sparkle glitter and stir into the unicorn glitter butter.

Allow the butter to cool and thicken. Once it starts to thicken, remix the unicorn glitter butter with a fork or other utensil until the mica and glitter that have settled to the bottom are evenly incorporated throughout the product.

Once your unicorn glitter butter has completely thickened – this may take several hours to overnight – spoon the mixture evenly into two 1 oz. double walled jars.

Then screw the lids onto your jars and label as desired for personal use or gifting. I created my labels for my unicorn glitter butter using this magical unicorn clipart I purchased from Kenna Sato Designs.

A few important notes.

I don’t recommend substitutions for this recipe other than a color swap for the rose pearl and mauvey gem micas and the fragrance oil. The ingredients are kind of all perfectly balanced together based on their properties. It’s what gives this unicorn glitter butter its great creamy texture and keeps the glitter adhered to your skin.

This can be used anywhere on your body to add some shimmer and shine! However, this product is not recommended for eyes due to the glitter content. (Currently the FDA does not approve any glitters for use on eyes in the United States.)

If you’d like to be able to use my unicorn glitter butter on your lips as well as your body, you’ll need to swap out the mauvey gem mica for a lip safe mica and either omit the fragrance oil or use a lip safe fragrance oil.

If you make my unicorn glitter butter recipe I’d love to see how it turned out! Be sure to share a photo of your unicorn glitter butter along with your other bath and body recipe by using the tag #soapdelishowoff on instagram! (You might even get featured on my blog!)

Ready to jump right into creating your own unicorn inspired eyeshadow? There are a few things you’ll need for this mineral makeup project.

DIY Unicorn Eyeshadow Ingredients & Materials:

I used the 10 ml black plastic jars with 3 dividers with black window lids from SKS Bottle & Packaging for my DIY unicorn shadow to keep the colors separate. However, you can mix all of the colors individually then fill an undivided jar in three sections of color. This will allow you to swipe all of the colors onto one brush at the same time to use as a highlighter.

You’ll also need an assortment of eye safe micas, fine silver rainbow cosmetic glitter and sericite to create your colors. I purchased these ingredients from Brambleberry.

And, to keep the colors together when pressed, improve glide and staying power, I also used isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and dimethicone.

If you’d like your DIY unicorn eyeshadow scented, you’ll also need a skin safe fragrance oil. I used a rose quartz fragrance oil, also from Brambleberry, however you can use any fragrance oil you prefer. I recommend a skin safe fragrance oil with no vanilla content and that’s mostly clear without a heavy yellow cast.

Have everything you need? Let’s get started! You’ll find the mineral makeup recipes for each of the colors for your DIY unicorn eyeshadow below. I used .15CC scoops for all of the dry measurements indicated and a graduated transfer pipette to measure out the liquid ingredients in drops.

Pink Shimmer Eyeshadow Ingredients:

8 scoops sericite
16 scoops rose pearl mica
8 scoops super pearly white mica
20 scoops fine silver rainbow eco-glitter

12 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
16 drops dimethicone
5 drops rose quartz fragrance oil

Purple Shimmer Eyeshadow Ingredients:

8 scoops sericite
8  scoops mauvey gem mica
8 scoops amethyst purple mica
8 scoops super pearly white mica
20 scoops fine silver rainbow eco-glitter

12 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
16 drops dimethicone
5 drops rose quartz fragrance oil

Blue Shimmer Eyeshadow Ingredients:

8 scoops sericite
16  scoops cellini blue mica
8 scoops super pearly white mica
20 scoops fine silver rainbow eco-glitter

12 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
16 drops dimethicone
5 drops rose quartz fragrance oil

Instructions:

Begin by cutting out a small piece of cardboard that fits into the cavities of your container. You can do this by tracing a circle around the jar, then cutting it out slightly inside the circle you drew so that it fits inside the jar. Then cut the circle into three equal parts that match the cavities of your container. Trim them down slightly until each fits inside a cavity.

 Next, you’ll make the eyeshadow colors for your DIY unicorn eyeshadow. To do this, start with your first color recipe. Begin with the sericite, adding 8 scoops of the ingredient to a small dish or shallow bowl. (My scoops were not exact. I used slightly rounded scoops for each ingredient.)

Learn how to make your own scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow. This fun trio of scented pressed eyeshadows offers lasting pastel color and shimmer that’s perfect for eyes. Once you’ve mastered these colors, be sure to try out your own custom DIY unicorn eyeshadow in custom colors and scents!

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

Now add the glitter and remix until all of the dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the shadow.

Once you’ve mixed the dry ingredients, use a dropper to add the rubbing alcohol, dimethicone and the fragrance oil. Mix well with a toothpick until the eyeshadow is evenly coated with the wet ingredients.

Fill one of the cavities of 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 jar.

Next, wrap one of the small pieces of cardboard you cut out in a piece of thin linen or wax paper.

Press the wrapped cardboard on top of the shadow into your cavity with as much force as possible, then gently remove the wrapped cardboard. Your first color is now complete!

Simply follow the same process with your remaining scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow colors until your tri-color eyeshadow pan is full.

Can I sell my eyeshadows?

If you are wanting to sell your scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow palettes, there are a few things you should be aware of first. Currently glitter, mica-based pearlescent pigments, and other composite pigments used in cosmetics are NOT FDA approved for cosmetics.

The FDA is currently exercising discretionary enforcement of these color additives while they are in discussion over regulatory status and safety. You can find further discussion on this at Marie Gale’s blog here. Marie Gale is author of the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, which I highly recommend for anyone selling handcrafted cosmetic and skin care products.

While this glitter is non-toxic, it’s important to note that this is not a cosmetic glitter and therefore it should not be used on lips and eyes. Instead, stick to applying this DIY unicorn body glitter to your body and hair. (Don’t want to make it? You can shop for pre-made cosmetic unicorn glitter mixes on Etsy here.)

As this glitter is larger than cosmetic glitter, it can cause damage if used around eyes or on eyelids.

Natural Spray Deodorant Recipe for Wookiees with Printable Labels

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

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn't just for wookiees. It's pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. But just for fun there are free printable "Wook Away Spray" deodorant labels for your finished product!

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn’t just for wookiees. It’s pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. (There’s ZERO baking soda!) But just for fun there are free printable “Wook Away Spray” deodorant labels for your finished product!

Inspired by my boyfriend, who is a HUGE Phish fan and plans to on “drag” me to the summer festival, Lock’n, this year, I felt obliged to make a natural spray deodorant recipe for him. There’s nothing like 4-5 days of wook stink on a guy who likely won’t shower during the festival and doesn’t wear deodorant. While he’s technically what I’d describe as a little bit hippie – the urban dictionary top definition of wookiee (which they’ve misspelled as wookie in regards to this instance) is not particularly flattering of anyone. But the wookiee culture as I’ve learned has quite the following. So I figured, why not have fun with it? (For more festival DIY’s visit Soap Deli News blog here.)

I originally formulated my natural spray deodorant recipe without any arrowroot powder. However, I found this made my deodorant spray feel sticky once sprayed on. Which was an absolute no go for my bf. So I added some arrowroot powder to the formula and voila! – I had my wook away spray!

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn't just for wookiees. It's pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. But just for fun there are free printable "Wook Away Spray" deodorant labels for your finished product!

I used a blend of patchouli, lavender and tea tree essential oils for my natural spray deodorant recipe. In the amounts given you’ll find this gives this natural spray deodorant a more unisex scent that’s not really floral nor does it smell like someone drowned themselves in patchouli. It’s more of a fresh scent that most people won’t find offensive and the essential oils were also of course chosen for their specific skin care properties. That they are anti-bacterial helps to prevent odors. However, feel free to substitute your own essential oil blend for scent preference.

I thought my natural spray deodorant recipe looked really great in the glass jars from Infinity Jars. I specifically used their 100 mL fine mist spray bottle for this natural spray deodorant recipe. Not only does the deep violet glass look great for this application with my “Wook Away Spray” labels (they appear black,) but these glass jars also offer an airtight seal and UV protection which will help to extend the shelf life of your final product. (You can find a variety of glass cosmetic bottles and glass jars for your skin care products at Infinity Jars here.)

Natural Spray Deodorant Recipe (aka Wook Away Spray)

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.6 oz. witch hazel extract
1/2 teaspoon magnesium hydroxide
1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt, extra fine ground
12 drops patchouli essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil
7 drops tea tree oil

Instructions:

I specifically used the witch hazel extract from Mountain Rose Herbs for my natural spray deodorant recipe as it’s been double distilled and contains 86% witch hazel extract and only 14% alcohol. However, if you prefer witch hazel without alcohol, then Thayer’s Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera is a suitable alternative.

Measure or weigh out the witch hazel in glass Pyrex measuring cup. (I used a digital scale to weigh mine as is habit for most recipes however measuring out the amount needed won’t affect product performance as the difference is so little.)

Using a measuring spoon, measure out the magnesium hydroxide, arrowroot powder and pink Himalayan salt. Whisk these ingredients into the witch hazel until there are no clumps and the magnesium hydroxide and arrowroot powder have dissolved.

Now, using a different graduated transfer pipette or glass dropper for each, add the essential oils and mix again.

Use a small funnel to pour the mixture into your 100 mL glass jar and screw on the fingertip mister.

To use simply spray onto clean armpits as desired, shaking vigorously before each use to avoid clogging your sprayer. Reapply afterwards as needed.

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn't just for wookiees. It's pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. But just for fun there are free printable "Wook Away Spray" deodorant labels for your finished product!

If you’d like to use my “Wook Away Spray” labels for this natural spray deodorant recipe, you can download the free printable “Wook Away Spray” PDF labels here. Then simply print the labels onto a full size label sheetWorldLabel has great prices for bulk labels and sticker sheets – cut out and adhere to the front of your 100 mL fine mist spray bottle.

Summer Festival Soap Recipe

This natural summer festival soap recipe contains a blend of natural essential oils to help keep biting summer insects away!

Ingredients (x2):

5.4 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
9 oz. palm oil
9 oz. rice bran oil
3.6 oz. soybean oil
1.8 oz. grapeseed oil
3.6 oz. shea butter
3.6 oz. cocoa butter

12 fluid oz. distilled water
4.8 oz. lye (sodium hydroxide)

At trace Batch A:

.85 oz. lavender essential oil
.15 oz. lemon eucalyptus essential oil
.05 oz. tea tree oil
.05 oz. lavender flowers
lavender ultramarine pigment or mica powder, to suit

At trace Batch B:

1 oz. lemongrass essential oil
.15 oz. peppermint essential oil

Directions:

You’ll need to make two batches of soap in separate pots for this summer festival soap recipe. The final festival soap recipe will fill two of my wooden soapmaking molds. Combine equal amounts of all soapmaking oils into each pot and prepare two containers of lye-water. (Each pot should have 5.4 oz. coconut oil, 9 oz. palm oil, 9 oz. rice bran oil, 3.6 oz. soybean oil, 1.8 oz. grape seed oil, 3.6 oz. shea butter and 3.6 oz. cocoa butter. Then each container of lye-water should contain 12 oz. distilled water and 4.8 oz. of lye.) Prepare according to your basic cold process soapmaking instructions.

Once each container of lye-water and oils have cooled, you are ready to mix your soap. Start by mixing one container of lye-water into one pot of soapmaking oils. At a light trace, weigh out and stir in the ingredients listed for Batch A – the lavender, eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils, lavender flowers and the pigment powder. Mix well using your immersion blender. Once it reaches a thick trace pour the soap evenly into the bottom of BOTH of your lined molds.

Now mix your second batch of soapmaking oils and lye-water together, weighing and adding the ingredients for Batch B – the lemongrass and peppermint essential oils – at trace. As lemongrass essential oil turns the soap a lovely shade of yellow, you won’t need to use a colorant for this layer. Once ready, pour the soap from this batch evenly into the two soap molds over top of the lavender fragrance/colored soap. Cover and insulate for 24 hours, then unmold and cut your festival soap into bars. Allow to cure for a minimum of three weeks before use.

This recipe will yield 20-24 bars depending on how you cut them.

Best Ever Natural Homemade Dry Shampoo Recipe

Summer Festival Dry Shampoo Recipe

My summer festival dry shampoo recipe avoids using food ingredients that may attract insects and in lieu of cornmeal instead uses a super effective and light blend of arrowroot powder, rice flour, baking soda, colloidal oatmeal and cosmetic clays. Essential oils and herbs are also added for a fresh fragrance as well as for their insect repellent properties.

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Rice Flour White
1 Tablespoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons colloidal oatmeal
3 Tablespoons arrowroot powder
1 Tablespoon Rhassoul (Red Moroccan) Clay
1 Tablespoon lavender blossoms or (lavender flower powder)
1 ml lavender essential oil
1/2 ml patchouli essential oil
1/2 ml rosemary extract

Instructions:

Because I tend to have red highlights in my hair I chose to use red Moroccan clay in this recipe. If you prefer you can substitute with Fuller’s earth clay. You can also sub the arrowroot powder with Bob’s Red Mill Tapioca Flour. (Although Bob’s Red Mill makes an all natural arrowroot starch/flour as well.) For darker hair you can also add 1/8 – 1/4 of a teaspoon of brown iron oxide.

Using a Tablespoon measuring spoon, measure out the rice flour, baking soda, colloidal oatmeal, arrowroot powder, clay and lavender flowers in a glass measuring cup. Then, using a different graduated plastic transfer pipette for each of the essential oils and rosemary extract, measure out and add these to the dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon, then slowly pour into a coffee bean grinder and mix well. This will turn your lavender blossoms into a powder and evenly distribute the essential oils and extract. Once mixed, simply pour into two 4 oz. or one 8 oz. jar or container.

To use simply apply to hair – a makeup brush actually works wonderfully for this and cuts down on spillage – and lightly massage into hair with your hands. (If you used brown iron oxide pigment, avoid your scalp area as it can stain your scalp.) Then brush through and go! I found this recipe works really well, smells heavenly, and it even added some nice volume to my fine, straight hair.

Use this insect repellent spray to deter biting insects at summer festivals and during other outdoor activities! Simply mist this spray on your skin after showering and as needed throughout the day.

Adapted from The Mountain Rose Herbs Blog

Ingredients:

2 oz. witch hazel extract
2 oz. catnip or peppermint hydrosol
2 oz. distilled water
1 mL (20 drops) lemon eucalyptus essential oil
1 mL (20 drops) lavender essential oil
1/2 mL (10 drops) lemongrass essential oil
1/2 mL (10 drops) Virginia cedarwood essential oil

Instructions:

To make this natural insect repellent spray recipe you’ll need to begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the witch hazel, catnip hydrosol and distilled water. Combine into a 6 – 8 oz. spray bottle using a funnel. (I used this Boston round bottle with mini spray trigger from SKS Bottle & Packaging.) Using a graduated transfer pipette or dropper, add the essential oils to the bottle then screw on the trigger sprayer. Shake well to combine the ingredients and again before each use.

To extend the shelf life of this natural insect repellent spray and to help you and your loved ones cool down on a hot summer day, store this in the refrigerator between uses. And don’t forget to pack it for your next hiking or camping trip!
