Which of course brings me around to a rather unsettling discovery a few years back.

Not after they tried switching back to commercial bar soap.)

Glitter Snowflake Soap Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

7.25 oz. clear natural melt and pour soap base
15.75 oz. white natural melt and pour soap base
.25 oz. peppermint essential oil
fine electric blue bio glitter, to suit
fine white bio glitter, to suit
fine silver bio glitter, to suit (optional)

Materials & Supplies:

6-cavity silicone snowflake mold
4-cup heat safe glass measuring cup like Pyrex
utensils for stirring
digital scale
spray bottle with rubbing alcohol
cutting board, optional

Instructions:

You’ll begin by making the glitter layer of your glitter snowflake soaps first. To do this, start by weighing out 7.25 oz. of the clear melt and pour soap base. Cut the soap base into chunks and place into a heat safe, glass measuring cup. Heat in the microwave in 30 second increments until melted.

Remove the melted soap from the microwave using a folded tea towel as the glass may be hot. Now weigh out .1 oz. of the peppermint essential oil and stir into the melted soap base. Next, add your choice of biodegradable glitters in your colors of choice. Have fun with it, but be careful not to go overboard. Too much glitter can make your snowflake soaps feel scratchy!

Now stir well to combine so both the glitter and the peppermint essential oil are evenly distributed throughout the soap base. Allow the melted soap base to cool slightly.

Place your silicone snowflake mold on a cutting board. Then stir the melted soap again.

Pour the glittery soap base evenly into each of the mold’s six cavities. Then spritz the tops of your soap with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles. If desired, use the cutting board to carefully transport the mold to the refrigerator to hasten cooling times.

While the first layer of your glitter snowflake soap cools, you can get started on the next step.

Wash and dry the measuring cup you used to melt the clear soap base.

Next, weigh out 15.75 oz. of the white melt and pour soap base. Cut it into chunks. Then place the soap inside the measuring cup and heat until melted, in 30 second increments, stirring occasionally.

Once melted, weigh out and stir in .15 oz. of the peppermint essential oil.

Once the first layer of soap has fully hardened, spritz it with rubbing alcohol. Then pour the white peppermint scented soap based into the cavities of your mold on top of the first layer.

Spritz the tops of the soap with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles. Then allow the soap to cool and harden. (Again, you can transfer your soap to the refrigerator to speed up the process.)

DIY Halloween Bat Soap with Biodegradable Eco-Friendly Glitter

You know how you have a great project idea? Then when the time comes to actually make it, you only just then realize you don’t have that one thing you absolutely need. Well, that’s exactly how my DIY Halloween bat soap was born.

Halloween Soap DIY. Learn how to make this glitter DIY Halloween bat soap for non-candy Halloween gifts using melt and pour soap and biodegradable eco-friendly glitter. A fun and easy homemade soap recipe.

If you recall from my Halloween solid lotion bar recipe, I have this super cute silicone Halloween soap mold. Not only does it have a toothy bat mold, there’s also a witch, two pumpkins and a sweet little sugar skull.

As sugar skulls were trending on Pinterest, I really wanted to make little sugar skull soaps. I was planning to dust the inside of the mold with biodegradable eco-friendly glitter in a collection of bright colors. Then fill it white melt and pour soap. The finishing touch, however, was going to be painting on details with cosmetic mica powders. As it turned out however, I realized as I was gathering all of my materials for my sugar skull soaps, I didn’t have that one crucial supply.

Ordinarily I pretty much have everything I need to create just about anything. Despite scaling back on soap making supplies with each move, I alway have more than enough to throw an impromptu craft party. However, with my divorce finally (FINALLY!) final, I’m in the process of moving in with my boyfriend. Because of that, not everything I need is in his apartment yet. Some of it is still at my friend Bambi’s house.

Halloween Soap DIY. Learn how to make this glitter DIY Halloween bat soap for non-candy Halloween gifts using melt and pour soap and biodegradable eco-friendly glitter. A fun and easy homemade soap recipe.

Rather than take a fifteen minute drive, lose a half hour and as a consequence also lose my motivation in the process, I opted for a DIY Halloween bat soap instead. With glitter. (I mean there’s no time to start sullying someone else’s apartment with glitter than the present, right?

By now you’re probably wondering what the heck I didn’t possibly have on hand for those sugar skull soaps if the glitter was a go.

In the end, my project was derailed by an absent paint brush.

Oddly enough, Greg and I had also just run out of Q-tips. So my back up plan was also a no go.

I’m a little dismayed I likely won’t be able to make my sugar skull soaps in time to blog for Halloween. However, I actually love how my DIY Halloween bat soap turned out. It’s cute. It was fun to make. And now I have a really easy soap making project to share with you!

DIY Halloween Bat Soap Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

2.15 oz. clear melt and pour soap base
24 drops (around 2 mL) peppermint essential oil
matte black soap making color bar or black mica
fine cosmetic bio glitter in color(s) of choice

Instructions:

My DIY Halloween bat soap recipe will yield a single bat soap. If you’re interested in making additional soaps for the silicone Halloween soap mold that I used, I did get the approximate amount of melt and pour soap you need for each cavity. Keep in mind that this is by weight. Additionally, as not all soap bases weigh the same amount, weights may vary slightly from base to base.

Amount of melt and pour soap (by weight) needed for each cavity.

  • Bat – 2.15 oz.
  • Skull – 1.65 oz.
  • Middle pumpkin – 2.1 oz.
  • Witch hat – 2.35 oz.
  • Ghost – 1.95 oz.
  • Bottom pumpkin – 2.15 oz.

Halloween Soap DIY. Learn how to make this glitter DIY Halloween bat soap for non-candy Halloween gifts using melt and pour soap and biodegradable eco-friendly glitter. A fun and easy homemade soap recipe.

Getting started.

To recreate my DIY Halloween bat soap, you will need several supplies. These include the following.

Step #1

Using a digital scale, weigh out 2.15 oz. of clear melt and pour soap base for your DIY Halloween bat soap. Cut into chunks with a knife. Then place the soap into a heat safe glass measuring cup.

Step #2

Heat the soap base in the microwave in 20-30 second increments until melted. Be sure to stir the soap after heating.

Step #3

Once the soap has melted, add a small sliver of the black color black. Stir the soap until the color block has completely melted. (Alternately you may also use a pinch of black mica.) You can add more color as needed. However, keep in mind that overuse of colorants may cause the soap to bleed and can potentially stain skin.

Step #4

Now add your desired amount of fine, cosmetic eco-friendly biodegradable glitter in your color(s) of choice. (For a more subtle sparkle, try this eco-friendly ultra fine biodegradable glitter instead.) Stir to incorporate.

Step #5

Using a plastic transfer pipette or dropper, add the peppermint essential oil to the melted soap base. Mix again.

Step #6

Place your soap mold on top of a cutting board. Once your soap has cooled somewhat and starts to develop a film on top, remix the soap. Then pour the melted soap base for your DIY Halloween bat soap into the bat cavity of the mold. Spritz the soap with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles.

Step #7

Using the cutting board for support, transport the soap mold to the refrigerator. Allow the soap to cool and completely solidify.

DIY Glitter Perfume

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

3-4 scoops bio glitter in color(s) of choice
6 grams clear jojoba oil (or fractionated coconut oil)
1 gram skin safe fragrance oil* of choice

Instructions:

It’s important to note that different fragrance oils have different usage guidelines based on maximum safe skin exposure. Some fragrances, such as pumpkin spice, are only safe for skin when used at 3.3% of the recipe for perfumes. Others, like jackfruit & kiwi, are safe up to 43.8% of your perfume recipe.

The amount called for in the perfume recipe above assumes that the fragrance oil you’ve chosen is safe at up to a 14.2% usage rate* for perfume. (I’ll give you some recipes for using other fragrance oils further down as well as tell you how to figure out how much fragrance you need for fragrances oils with a lower skin safe usage rate.)

For accuracy you will need a digital scale to weigh the jojoba oil and fragrance oil. You will also need a 10 mL glass roll on bottle for each DIY glitter perfume you plan to make. I obtained my bottles in bulk from SKS Bottle & Packaging.

Begin by adding three to four .15cc scoops of glitter to an empty 10 mL bottle.

Then place the bottle on the scale. Tare and set the unit to grams. Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, add 6 grams of jojoba oil to the bottle. Then tare your scale again, and using a fresh pipette, add 1 gram of fragrance oil. This should fill up your bottle.

Now snap the housing and stainless steel roller ball onto the bottle and screw on the cap. Shake well to mix.

To use, simply roll onto wrists, behind ears and other pulse points as desired. And don’t forget to shake the bottle whenever you like for a fun snow globe effect!

If desired you can also decorate our perfume bottles with washi tape and stickers like I did.

Some of my favorite fragrance oils that can be used according to the recipe above are jackfruit & kiwi, citrus blossoms & heliotrope and cyclamen & citron.

Want to use a different fragrance oil?

You should be able to find out from your supplier what the recommended usage rate is for the fragrance oil you’ve chosen. Once you have that amount, multiply the amount of jojoba oil by that percentage to figure out how much fragrance to use. For example, if the maximum skin safe usage rate for perfume is 8.5% you would multiply 6 grams by .085. This gives you .51 grams. So you would adjust the fragrance oil in the recipe to .5 grams or less.

If your scale isn’t sensitive enough to weigh out a half of a gram, then you can make two perfumes at once. Simply fill each bottle with the desired amount of glitter, then mix double the amount of jojoba oil (6 grams) and double the amount of fragrance oil (1 gram) in a small beaker. Then carefully fill each bottle with equal parts of your perfume mixture using either the beaker spout (assuming your hand is steadier than mine!) or a pipette.

Want to make pumpkin spice perfume? Pumpkin spice fragrance oil has a much lower skin safe usage rate for perfume. It’s only 3.3%. So I recommend making six of these at once. You’ll need 36 grams of jojoba oil and 1 gram of pumpkin spice fragrance oil. (I used gold bio glitter for my pumpkin spice DIY glitter perfume.) Combine in a beaker, mix well, then evenly distribute between the six bottles. (Alternately you can also buy pre-made pumpkin spice perfume!)

To create a candy crush DIY glitter perfume, I used unicorn bio glitter, 18 grams of jojoba oil and 2 grams of candy crush fragrance oil to make three roll on perfume bottles. See how that works? Easy peasy! (You can also use a percentage calculator if you need more help.)

Glitter Pumpkin Spice Body Butter Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. refined shea butter
1.5 oz. kokum butter
.25 oz. candelilla wax
1 oz. pumpkin seed oil
.3 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
.4 oz. biodegradable gold glitter
.05 oz. pumpkin spice fragrance oil
1/2 mL vitamin E oil (optional)

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to make my pumpkin spice body butter recipe as you’ll be weighing out all of the necessary ingredients with the exception of the vitamin E oil.

If you are planning to make more homemade bath and body recipes in the future, I highly recommend purchasing a Baker’s Math scale. Weighing ingredients is not only more accurate than using liquid measurements, but it also allows you to easily re-size a recipe by a percentage and figure the correct percentage of essential oils, fragrance oils and preservatives that you would need when changing a recipe or developing your own.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter, kokum butter and candelilla wax. Combine in a double boiler and heat over medium to medium-low heat until melted. Alternately, you can also combine your ingredients in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or a glass scientific beaker and heat in a microwave until melted at 40% power. (I’ve found that glass beakers come in super handy especially when making cream eyeshadows and lip balms!)

Once melted, remove from heat. Then weigh out the pumpkin seed oil and stir into the melted butters and wax. Follow with the fragrance oil and kaolin clay, weighing each ingredient first, then mixing into the body butter. Using a plastic graduated transfer pipette, measure out 1/2 mL (or about 10 drops) of the vitamin E oil and mix in.

Finally, weigh out the glitter. (I used eco-friendly biodegradable glitter from The Sparkle Party.) Use .4 oz. of glitter for a bold look or half the amount for a more subtle appearance. (Alternately, if glitter isn’t your thing, you can simply omit it entirely.) Whisk the glitter into the body butter mixture with a fork until well combined.

As the body butter starts to thicken, remix, then spoon into an eco-friendly 4 oz. brown paperboard jar with a lid. (You can find these recyclable, renewable and biodegradable brown paperboard containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging in a variety of sizes.)

A must have for seasonal holiday parties, not only does this moisturizing pumpkin spice body butter smell just like everyone's favorite pumpkin pie, but it also makes skin pop with glitzy eco-friendly glitter!

Once your pumpkin spice body butter fully solidifies, cap and label your container as desired for personal use or gifting. Washi tape and scrapbooking/planner stickers are a simple and easy way to add a bit of pizazz to your jars.

If you want to recreate my pumpkin spice body butter recipe to sell, you’ll need to follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) when making your product. You’ll find that the book, Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale, is a valuable resource if you’re just getting started making your own homemade soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

In addition to GMP, you’ll also need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your products. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English by Marie Gale, spells out everything you need to know to legally label your products.
