I created this foaming salt scrub recipe with real strawberry fruit powder for it’s skin soothing properties. Strawberry fruit powder is rich in polyphenols and Vitamin C and has toning properties when used in skincare products.

In addition, I used dendritic salt in lieu of regular salt. Dendritic salt has a finer grain and larger surface area than other salts which offers greater fragrance retention in cosmetic applications. It also dissolves faster in water.

Ingredients:

8 oz. (227 grams) foaming bath whip
14 oz. (113 grams) dendritic salt
1 oz. (28 grams) strawberry fruit powder
.25 oz. (7 grams) strawberry fragrance oil
2 teaspoons Pink Vibrance mica powder

Instructions:

In a large container, weigh out the foaming bath whip base and the fragrance oil. Mix together. (I specifically used Crafter’s Choice foaming bath whip for my strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub recipe.)

In a separate container weigh out the salt and strawberry fruit powder.

Then, using a measuring spoon, measure out the mica powder.

Now spoon or pipe the strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub into your containers of choice. I used 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps from from SKS Bottle & Packaging. This product will yield around 22 oz. (624 grams) of product by volume. So I was able to fill two 9 oz. and one 4 oz. glass jars.

To use, simply remove desired amount and massage onto damp skin in the shower to cleanse, tone and exfoliate, then rinse off.

My strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub recipe is best suited for normal to oily skin.

It is important to note that fine salt crystals will dissolve in this base over time. Therefore I recommend using larger salt crystals than the dendritic salt if you aren’t using this product right away. You can also substitute the salt with sugar.

In addition, I advise using a preservative if you’re planning to sell or store your strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub prior to use. If selling your homemade products, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. Not sure how to label your creations? I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Like the idea of strawberries but don’t want a strawberry scent? This foaming salt scrub recipe is also nice with a pink lemonade flavor oil!

DIY Homemade Strawberry Preserves Cold Process Soap Recipe

Ever wondered about this homemade soap (above) featured within my DIY Soapmaking Tutorial? It’s actually a deliciously scented strawberry preserves soap recipe that I used to sell on my local farmer’s market years ago. I haven’t made this soap in a long time, but when digging through some old books and loose recipes yesterday, I actually discovered I not only still have the recipe for making this sweet scented handmade cold process soap, but that the original fragrance oil I used to create it is still available from the same supplier.

I call this my homemade Strawberry Preserves Soap Recipe as I’ve accented it with exfoliating poppy seeds to make it look more like preserves, while the scent is an edible blend of strawberries, vanilla sugar and sweet syrup. But whatever you decided to call yours, you’ll love the lather and the fragrance guaranteed!

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

12.8 oz. 76° melt point (refined) coconut oil
6.5 oz. palm oil
6.6 oz. pomace olive oil
6.6 oz. canola oil
2 oz. rice bran oil
1.5 oz. shea butter

5.1 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide
11 fluid ounces distilled water

At trace:

2 oz. Crafter’s Choice Strawberry Jam fragrance oil
2 Tablespoons poppy seeds
4 Tablespoons rolled oats, ground
1/4 teaspoon red iron oxide pigment powder

Instructions:

To craft this homemade strawberry preserves soap recipe simply follow your basic cold process soapmaking instructions. Add the red iron oxide to the soapmaking oils once they have cooled and right before you add the lye-water. Stir well using a stick or immersion hand blender. This will ensure the color gets mixed evenly throughout the soap. Then add the lye-water to the oils and stir until trace at which point you would blend in the fragrance, ground oatmeal and poppy seeds. Mix well to thoroughly incorporate all ingredients, then pour into your lined mold and insulate for 24 hours before unmolding and cutting into individual bars.

This batch will yield approximately 10 – 12 bars (or a 3lb. batch) and will fit inside one of my DIY wooden loaf soap molds.

Allow bars to cure for 3 – 6 weeks after unmolding and cutting into bars. Wrap your final bars as desired with professional plastic food wrap film, Kraft paper, or fabric. As the fragrance oil contains vanilla, this soap will darken to a deep red over time.

Homemade Strawberry Mint Wine Cooler Recipe

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.

Recently I found myself with some very ripe fruit on hand. So I decided to use it to make a refreshing and tasty summertime drink! What I came up with was my own strawberry mint wine coolers! Here’s how you can make your own!
Ingredients:
1lb. ripe strawberry with stems and leaves removed, sliced in half or thirds
2-3 cutie tangerines or 1 small regular tangerine, peeled and any seeds removed
A handful of fresh peppermint, crushed or torn in half
1 bottle of sweet white table wine, I used Château Morrisett’s Sweet Mountain Laurel (from a local winery)

Directions:
Combine the strawberries, tangerine slices, crushed mint and wine into a pitcher with a lid. Place in the fridge and chill until cold or overnight. Then serve over ice if you choose with one or several strawberries and a fresh mint leaf. (I also like to eat the fruit afterward.)

I also have some super ripe cherries I bought recently on our local Roanoke Farmer’s Market. For my next batch I want to try a bottle of sweet white wine with ripe cherries and some fresh chocolate mint I bought from Rolling Meadows Farms and planted in my garden. If I’m able to pick the mulberries on the tree in the backyard before they all fall onto the ground, I think they’d also make a fun addition.

I also want to try this recipe with just a little ice and blended all together in a blender. What are some of your favorite drink recipes you’ve tried to use up ingredients around your house?

Strawberry Shortcake Season

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.

I had a tasty post drafted and scheduled for today, but Blogger ate all of my posts since Wednesday. I guess I made it really hungry after talking about all that Strawberry Shortcake in the article I had planned. Since it’s gone, you’ll just have to settle for the slightly watered down version of that post. You still get an awesome recipe at the end though.

Anyway, we just had our Annual Strawberry Festival here in Roanoke that benefits the Community School – a local private, school system that supports academics and the arts. So I’ve been craving strawberries since they announced the event weeks ago. But now that the event has come and gone, the strawberries in my own garden are starting to ripen.

In fact, we had just enough strawberries the other day to make a classic strawberry shortcake piled high. Since I am not a fan of store bought short bread though, I let my dad eat this one that I made.
Personally I prefer good old strawberry pie. But I am intrigued by this recipe from Country Living for Turbinado Shortcakes with Strawberries and Whipped Cream. It calls for good old fashioned biscuits in lieu of the shortcake and instead of glaze, the strawberries are soaked in orange juice and sugar. You’ll find the recipe here.

So, what’s your favorite strawberry treat?
