DIY Pumpkin Spice Soap that You Can Mold! (A Fun Weekend DIY Project for All Ages)

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

Since having learned that making or playing with homemade slime containing borax can possibly cause chemical burns, you may be looking for another option for your kids’ crafts. Preferably one that’s borax free. My DIY pumpkin spice soap is the perfect solution for seasonal fun for both kids and grown ups alike!

I first tried out a version of this moldable soap recipe on a girls’ night and we had a blast! And because you can make these DIY pumpkin spice soaps as simple or as detailed as you like, they are suitable for elementary school kids and up. (However, you may want to prepare the moldable soap base prior to handling for younger children rather than involve them in the full soapmaking process.)

Ingredients:

4 oz. Stephenson Crystal Hemp Melt & Pour Soap Base
1.1 oz. liquid vegetable glycerin
.25 oz. cornstarch
.1 oz pumpkin pie spice fragrance oil
orange color bar or liquid orange soap colorant, optional
skin safe cosmetic mica powders in colors of choice
isopropyl alcohol

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out 4 oz. of the hemp melt & pour soap base and cut into chunks. Place the soap chunks in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or bowl, then heat in the microwave in 20-30 increments until melted. Add color to suit, if desired, and mix well.

Next, weigh out the cornstarch and glycerin and stir into the melted soap base. Follow with the fragrance oil, weighing out the necessary amount first.

Whisk the soap base with a fork until all of the cornstarch has dissolved and the soap starts to thicken. Once the soap has cooled and can be molded without sticking to your hands, it’s ready to use!

Working on a covered surface or parchment paper, shape the soap into a pumpkin with your hands the same way you would clay. You can use a butter knife to help add details around the pumpkin. Once you have a pumpkin shape you like, you can paint your pumpkin!

Simply mix a small amount of mica with isopropyl alcohol in a dish to desired consistency to create your soap paints. I used green, gold and copper micas to paint my DIY pumpkin spice soap.

I mixed the copper mica with alcohol first at a thinner consistency to push the paint into the grooves I made around the pumpkin.

Once I had mixed the color I simply used a small paint brush to paint the lines around my pumpkin shaped soap.

I then used a gold mica and alcohol to fill in the areas between those I painted copper. Finally, I mixed up green mica and isopropyl alcohol and used that color to paint the stem.

Once you’ve painted your pumpkin spice soap, allow it to dry fully before handling. Then package and label as desired for personal use or gifting!

Once used, the mica will wash off, leaving behind an orange shaped pumpkin soap that smells like pumpkin spice!

Homemade Salve Recipe for Eczema with Honeybush Tea Infused Pumpkin Seed Oil

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

This homemade salve recipe for eczema is made using all natural ingredients including honeybush tea infused pumpkin seed oil. Prized in skin care for its ability to soothe skin irritation, honeybush tea is a wonderful pantry staple for whole body health both inside and out!

This homemade salve recipe for eczema is made using all natural ingredients including honeybush tea infused pumpkin seed oil. Prized in skin care for it's ability to soothe skin irritation, honeybush tea is a wonderful pantry staple for whole body health both inside and out! Visit Soap Deli News blog now for the recipe and to learn more about the benefits of honeybush tea and pumpkin seed oil that are incorporated into this valuable DIY.

As someone who suffered from eczema throughout childhood and at times into adulthood, I know how challenging it can be to find something that calms itching and soothes irritation. Because of this, I formulated this homemade salve recipe so that it works to calm irritated skin and helps to restore and lock in moisture. Both pumpkin seed oil and honeybush tea are key ingredients that help make this happen.

What is Honeybush Tea?

Honeybush tea, a red tea that is similar in nature to Rooibos tea, offers tea drinkers a sweeter, smoother tea than Rooibos. Perfect for making caffeine free sweet tea, honeybush tea is packed with immune boosting antioxidants, including major phenolic compounds believed to boost the body’s natural defenses against infections and reduce inflammation. (Source.) In addition, there are studies that show that drinking honeybush tea could be beneficial in helping to prevent certain cancers.

Visit Soap Deli News blog now for the recipe and to learn more about the benefits of honeybush tea and pumpkin seed oil that are incorporated into this valuable DIY.

Honeybush tea is also naturally rich in minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, copper, zinc, magnesium and manganese. When used in topical skin care applications, it helps to soothe and alleviate skin irritations such as eczema and rashes. (You can buy honeybush tea in over eight different varieties and flavors at Adagio Teas.)

For this homemade salve recipe, I infused honeybush tea in pumpkin seed oil. A highly nutritional carrier oil, pumpkin seed oil is sometimes referred to as “green gold” and is cold pressed from raw pumpkin seeds to preserve its benefits. Rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and sterols, this natural carrier oil contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins A and C, and zinc. It’s a naturally moisturizing yet non-greasy oil when utilized in skin care applications and has been historically used all over the world for healing purposes.

Honeybush Tea & Pumpkin Seed Homemade Salve Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

1 oz. refined kokum butter
1 oz. refined shea butter
1.15 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
.5 oz. honeybush tea infused cold pressed pumpkin seed oil
.25 oz. pharmaceutical grade lanolin
12 drops manuka essential oil
12 drops carrot seed essential oil
18 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops vitamin E oil

Instructions:

Prior to making my homemade salve recipe for eczema, you’ll need to infuse honeybush tea in pumpkin seed oil. Mountain Rose Herbs has a great tutorial on how to make herbal infused oils along with a wonderful list of other herbs you can infuse along with their properties when used in skin care applications. Once your honeybush tea infused pumpkin seed oil is ready, you’re all set to create this wonderful homemade salve recipe.

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the kokum butter, shea butter and beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or a scientific glass scientific beaker. Then gently melt these ingredients either in a microwave at 40% power or in a double boiler. Once melted, remove from heat.

Now weigh out the lanolin and stir it into the melted butters and wax until it has fully melted.

Follow with the honeybush tea infused pumpkin seed oil, weighing out the correct amount before adding it to the homemade salve mixture. Then mix well to fully incorporate all the ingredients.

Finally, using a dropper or graduated plastic transfer pipettes, add the essential oils and vitamin E. Stir to combine then pour into two 2 oz. straight sided amber glass jars with black phenolic lined caps. (I used glass amber jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging.) You should be able to fill each jar with 2 oz. each (by weight) of my honeybush tea & pumpkin seed salve.

This homemade salve recipe for eczema is made using all natural ingredients including honeybush tea infused pumpkin seed oil. Prized in skin care for it's ability to soothe skin irritation, honeybush tea is a wonderful pantry staple for whole body health both inside and out! Visit Soap Deli News blog now for the recipe and to learn more about the benefits of honeybush tea and pumpkin seed oil that are incorporated into this valuable DIY.

Allow your jars of homemade salve to cool and solidify, then screw on the caps and label as desired for personal use or gifting. To use your homemade salve, simply remove desired amount and massage onto skin as needed to soothe eczema, rashes and dry or chapped skin or lips.

The beeswax and the lanolin work together in this homemade salve recipe to lock in moisture as well as to protect skin. While the honeybush tea, pumpkin seed oil, butters and essential oils add their own unique skin care benefits making this a great staple cold weather product.

If you’d like to recreate my honeybush tea & pumpkin seed homemade salve 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 soap 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 avoid getting a visit from the FDA.

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.

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.
