What is sea clay?

Sea clay is a dark greenish-gray clay derived from the ancient sea floor of the Dead Sea in Israel. (You are probably already familiar with Dead Sea salt which comes from the same location.) As such, this unique clay offers an array of skin care benefits in part to its rich magnesium, potassium, sulfate and calcium content. Commonly used as an ingredients face masks as well as a natural soap colorant, sea clay also possesses detoxifying properties that can help to absorb odors and wetness when used in deodorant.

Alternatively, sea clay is also used by some alternative health practitioners to treat fibromyalgia, likely due to the high magnesium content. While the science doesn’t support using clay to treat this illness, I have found that including magnesium in my homemade deodorants has helped lessen the symptoms and severity of my own fibromyalgia with continued use.

It is important to note, however, that the Dead Sea is receding at an alarming rate in part both to regular mining and global warming. (You can read more about the recession of the Dead Sea on Wikipedia here and BBC News here.) As such, if you prefer not to contribute to the recession of the Dead Sea by purchasing Dead Sea salt or Dead Sea clay, you can simply substitute the sea clay in my manuka oil deodorant recipe with bentonite clay which has similar properties. (I had some leftover sea clay that was purchased prior to the discovery of these articles.)

Why manuka essential oil?

The manuka plant is native to New Zealand. This is where both manuka honey and manuka essential oil are sourced. Manuka honey is used for its beneficial properties in both skin care and as a health food for its wellness and antibiotic properties. (Learn more about manuka honey here.)

While manuka honey comes from New Zealand’s bees, manuka essential oil is produced by steam distillation of manuka leaves. (Learn more about manuka essential oil here.) This non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing essential oil is generally safe for all ages to use and is commonly included in skin care applications for its beneficial antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. As such, manuka essential oil is common in products that help to relieve itching skin and dandruff, rashes, common skin diseases and minor abrasions, as well as to ease pain in the muscles and joints.

I omitted the use of baking soda in my manuka oil deodorant recipe as it’s a common skin irritant for many, myself included. However, as with many of my past natural homemade deodorant recipes, I once again included magnesium hydroxide. Studies have shown that most adults have low levels of magnesium and as such including it in deodorant is an easy way to increase those levels. Sound good? Great! Let’s get started!

Manuka Oil Deodorant Recipe

Ingredients:

7 oz. arrowroot powder
3 oz. magnesium hydroxide
1 oz. Dead Sea clay (or bentonite clay)
2.5 oz. kokum butter
.5 oz. refined shea butter
2 oz. shea nut oil
2.5 oz. macerated carrot oil
1/4 teaspoon carnauba wax
.05 oz. manuka essential oil
.1 oz 5-fold lemon essential oil

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients for my manuka oil deodorant recipe, except for the carnauba wax. You will need a measuring spoon to measure out the wax.

To make my manuka oil deodorant recipe with sea clay, begin by weighing out the shea butter and kokum butter into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or glass bowl. Next, measure out the carnauba wax and add it to your container. Melt these ingredients in the microwave at 40%  power until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.)

Once melted, weigh out the shea nut oil and the macerated carrot oil. (If you live in a particularly warm environment, I recommend reducing the amount of carrot oil to 2 oz. – 2.25 oz. The mixture should be just pourable.) Stir these oils into the melted butters and wax. If needed, you can gently heat the deodorant mixture again then mix well to combine.

While the manuka oil deodorant mixture is still hot, weigh out and stir in both the arrowroot powder, sea clay and magnesium hydroxide. Mix well with a non-metal utensil to combine.

Then follow with the essential oils, again mixing thoroughly to ensure they are fully incorporated into your manuka oil deodorant.

Now carefully pour your manuka oil deodorant into eight travel size 1.5 oz. brown paperboard push up tubes. (You can also halve this recipe if desired. Half the amount of manuka essential oil is .025 oz./1 gram and half the 5-fold lemon essential oil is .05 oz./1.4 grams.)

Alternately, for a regular sized deodorant, you also use around four silver deodorant tubes with domed caps or white deodorant tubes with flat caps.

If your deodorant starts to solidify during the process of pouring it into your containers, you can gently reheat the mixture.

Once your manuka oil deodorant has cooled and fully solidified – this can take 1-2 days depending on your container size and room temperature – cap the deodorant containers and label as desired.

Made with antifungal and antibacterial manuka essential oil as well as detoxifying, mineral rich sea clay, this natural manuka oil deodorant recipe fights body odor without synthetic or toxic ingredients and offers a fresh, uni-sex scent perfect for summer.

If you are using the 1.5 oz. brown paperboard push up tubes, you can download the PDF for my free printable sea clay & manuka oil deodorant here. Then simply print the labels onto full size sticker paper, cut out the individual labels and apply as desired to your deodorant containers. (These labels are free for personal use and gifting only.)

The clipart for my manuka oil deodorant labels was purchased from Kenna Sato Designs. I specifically used the Crystals, Diamonds and Minerals clipart found here if you’d like to create your own similar custom labels.

Not quite ready to make your own manuka oil deodorant? You can buy a natural orange & vanilla manuka oil deodorant from Skin Craft Organics.

This palmarosa and lime natural deodorant recipe with aloe vera really works! Made with arrowroot powder, magnesium hydroxide and bentonite clay, this no baking soda natural deodorant recipe won't irritate sensitive skin. Palmarosa and lime essential oils combine for a fresh scent and help to fight odor causing bacteria.

Vegan All-in-One Beauty Stick Recipe

Ingredients:

.25 oz. candelilla wax
.75 oz. babassu oil
.25 oz. fractionated coconut oil (or camellia seed oil)
.25 oz. Bulgarian rose floral wax
.2 oz. (lip + eye safe) coral mica
.05 oz. (lip + eye safe) cellini blue mica
.05 oz. (lip + eye safe) super pearly white mica

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients for my all-in-one beauty stick recipe.

Begin by weighing out the candelilla wax and babassu oil into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat in the microwave at 40% power until melted. Alternately you may also use a double boiler. Take care removing your melted ingredients from the microwave as the glass will be hot. I recommend using a towel or pot holder when handling.

Next, weigh out the fractionated coconut oil (or camellia seed oil) and rose wax. (The rose wax gives this all-in-one beauty stick recipe a beautiful light rose fragrance!) Mix these ingredients into the melted candelilla wax and babassu oil until thoroughly combined and the rose wax has melted.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly then weigh out and add the mica powders. Mix well so the mica is fully incorporated into the makeup base.

Now slowly and carefully pour your rose scented all-in-one beauty stick into a container or containers of your choice. I used the 1.5 oz. brown paperboard push up tubes from SKS Bottle & Packaging. (I poured mine a little too hot and it caused a hole down the center. You can avoid this by practicing patience and pouring at a cooler temperature. My bad.)

If you are creating your own DIY all-in-one beauty sticks to sell, there’s a lot of important information you should be aware of in order to be FDA compliant in the USA. You can find information on the FDA website regarding the use of color additives in cosmetics here.

In addition, mica-based pearlescent pigments and other composite pigments used in cosmetics are NOT FDA approved at this time. The FDA however 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.

What is tea seed oil?

What’s tea seed oil, you ask? Camellia (tea seed) oil is a natural plant oil derived from the seeds of the Camellia oleifera plant from which green tea comes. This carrier oil, which is used both for cooking and skin care applications, contains valuable antioxidants. Because of this, Camellia oil or tea seed oil can help both skin and hair look rejuvenated and revitalized.

This homemade blueberry sugar scrub recipe with tea seed oil is perfect for summer! Not only does this summer blueberry sugar scrub gently exfoliate and moisturize skin to keep it looking healthy all season long, but it smells simply amazing! Plus free printable labels for gifting!

And, like fractionated coconut oil, tea seed oil not only provides skin with extra hydration, but it is also quickly and easily absorbed by skin. This in turn means your skin will feel silky smooth, not greasy. Camellia seed oil can help to improve both the tone and texture of skin as well as reduce the appearance of aging.

Blueberry Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

36 oz. granulated white sugar
12 oz. refined shea butter
3.5 oz. camellia (tea) seed oil
2 oz. clear jojoba oil (or other carrier oil of choice)
2 oz. emulsifying wax
.65 oz. blueberry fragrance oil
.25 oz. flax seed powder
.15 oz. blue oil locking mica powder (or similar)
.1 oz. sparkle cosmetic glitter (or similar, optional)

Instructions:

My blueberry sugar scrub recipe yields six 8 oz. sugar scrubs. All ingredients are by weight and therefore should be weighed using a scale.

For this project I used six Amber PET Heavy Wall 8 oz. Plastic Jars with Lined Aluminum Caps. You can find these containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter and emulsifying wax into a Pyrex Prepware 8-Cup Glass Measuring Cup or similar. Heat in a microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.) Remove from heat.

Weigh out the tea seed oil and jojoba oil and stir into the melted shea butter and wax. Follow with the blueberry fragrance oil, making sure to weigh it first to get the correct amount called for in my blueberry sugar scrub recipe.

In a separate container, weigh out and combine the sugar, flax seed powder, blue mica powder and glitter. Whisk well with a fork until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. (If your tub stains easily I recommend using Polysorbate 80 to help prevent staining and/or using a lesser amount of mica powder.)

Then simply cut out the labels using scissors, peel off the back and attach to the lids of your containers for gifting or personal use.

Natural Rose Body Balm Recipe with Tea Seed Oil

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires just 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using camellia tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

A while back I discovered (via Birchbox) and fell completely in love with Jurlique’s Rose Love Balm. It smells simply AMAZING and feels absolutely divine on skin. However, as I primarily used it as a hand cream, it got used up rather quickly.

When I received a recent purchase of organic Bulgarian rose floral wax, opened the container, closed my eyes and sniffed – I knew I’d found the perfect ingredient for making my own natural rose body balm!

Bulgarian rose floral wax is a wonderfully fragrant, semi-solid creamy wax derived from rose petals. This natural floral wax offers many of the same skin care benefits of Bulgarian roses including the moisturizing phospholipids. It makes a lovely addition to your own homemade creams, balms and lotions. And, because it's naturally scented, there's no need to add a separate fragrance to your products!

As this rose wax is plant derived, it is suitable for vegan skin care recipes and products. However, keep in mind this is a very soft wax. It is sort of the consistency of warm butter. Therefore you may want to include harder waxes in conjunction with the rose wax in skin care recipes that contain a high percentage of liquid carrier oils.

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

In addition to the rose floral wax, I also chose to use camellia (tea) seed oil for my natural rose body balm recipe. Like fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil is liquid at room temperature and has a long shelf life. When used in skin care applications, camellia seed oil can help to improve both the tone and texture of skin as well as reduce the appearance of aging. Camellia seed oil is also wonderful for hydration and is quickly and easily absorbed so that skin feels silky smooth, not greasy.

Following is my three ingredient natural rose body balm recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do. Not only does it smell divine, but it’s super moisturizing and non-greasy once absorbed. Plus it can be used anywhere that your skin needs a little extra love. Hands, body, feet and even lips!

Natural Rose Body Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

3 oz. refined shea butter
.15 oz. Bulgarian rose floral wax
.5 oz. camellia (tea) seed oil

Instructions:

To make my natural rose body balm recipe, you’ll begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar.

Heat the shea butter in the microwave at 50% power until melted. Alternately, you can melt the shea butter in a double boiler.

Remove from heat. Weigh out the rose floral wax and stir into the melted shea butter until all of the wax has melted.

Now weigh out the camellia seed oil and stir into the melted shea butter and wax.

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

Pour the rose body balm into your container of choice. I recommend around a 4 oz. container. I used a 100 mL wide-mouth cosmetic style screw top jar from Infinity Jars which is around 3.38 oz. It filled the jar to the very very top.

Allow your rose body balm to cool completely and resolidify before screwing on the lid. You can place your rose body balm in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
