I received the October box from For Soap’s Sake and was pretty excited about all the fun soapmaking ingredients and tools inside! My box included a spoon shaped silicone mold, a tear drop column mold – you’ve probably seen these used to make everything from rain drops in soap to seeds in watermelon soap – skewers, tea bags, dark cocoa butter, copper penny mica, bronze brown mica, titanium dioxide, marshmallow root powder, caramel coffee fragrance oil, afternoon tea fragrance oil, caffeine extract, vanilla stabilizer, and ylang ylang essential oil.

The ingredients were sourced from the following soapmaking suppliers: Nurture Soap, Nature’s Garden, Wholesale Supplies Plus, and Trendylee.

Discover two fantastic fall bath and beauty recipes for making your own DIY fall lip tint and DIY caramel coffee scented dry oil body spray!

Fall Bath and Beauty Recipes

I used several ingredients from the For Soap’s Sake October box to make two fall bath and beauty recipes. I used the dark cocoa butter and copper penny mica to make a fall lip tint and the caramel coffee fragrance oil to make a scented dry oil body spray one evening this past week with my friend Bambi. You can find those fall bath and beauty recipes below.

Fall Lip Tint Recipe

Ingredients:

.3 oz. dark cocoa butter
.3 oz. beeswax
.15 oz. (76° melt point) coconut oil
.1 oz. lanolin
.25 oz. sweet almond oil
1 Tablespoon copper penny mica
2 mL lavender essential oil
12 drops ginger or fresh ginger essential oil
10 drops cocoa absolute

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this recipe.

Learn how to make this copper tinted lip tint for fall! These make wonderful homemade gifts or wedding favors. Or add them to your product line for your online shop, Etsy shop, or to sell at farmer's markets and craft fairs!

Begin by weighing out the dark cocoa butter and beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power or less until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the coconut oil and lanolin and stir into the melted beeswax and cocoa butter. If necessary, gently reheat the ingredients again to ensure they are fully melted. Stir well to ensure even distribution. (If you prefer not to use lanolin you can substitute more coconut oil for the lanolin or use shea butter! For a vegan lip tint you can also substitute the beeswax with .15 oz. of carnauba wax. You do need to use less carnauba wax as it is a harder wax than beeswax.)

Now weigh out the sweet almond oil and stir into the melted lip tint ingredients, again reheating if necessary.

Next, using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the lavender essential oil and add into the lip tint. Then use fresh pipettes or droppers to add the ginger essential oil and the cocoa absolute. Mix well.

Using a tablespoon measuring spoon, measure out the copper penny mica and stir into your lip tint. Mix well.

Now slowly pour the melted lip tint into your containers, stirring the mixture after each pour.

For this fall lip tint recipe Bambi and I evenly filled six small metal slide top tins. I received my metal tins from SKS Bottle & Packaging which you can find here.

Once the lip tints have set up completely, slide on the lids for each tin then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

For my labels I purchased feather clipart from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy, then used a Word program to create my labels. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.) Then simply print your newly created labels onto label sheets – I get mine from World Label – and apply to the lids of your tins.

If you’re making your fall bath and beauty recipes to sell (for small commercial use) and want to use the same clipart as I have but without credit, you would need to purchase a commercial license from the creator.

You’ll also want to make sure you label your lip tints appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

This caramel coffee dry body oil spray recipe is the perfect scent for fall! Not only does it smell delectable, but this non-greasy dry oil also moisturizes skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth.

Caramel Coffee Dry Oil Body Spray Recipe

Ingredients:

3.8 oz. Cyclomethicone
3.8 oz. grape seed oil (or other liquid at room temperature carrier oil of choice)
.25 oz. caramel coffee fragrance oil

Instructions:

Weigh out the cyclomethicone, grape seed oil and fragrance oil into a medium glass Pyrex measuring cup. Stir to combine thoroughly, then use a funnel to pour your dry oil body spray evenly into two 4 oz. silver aluminum metal bullet round bottles. Screw on the sprayer top of your choice, then label as desired. (I received my aluminum bottles and sprayers from Container & Packaging Supply who you can find online here.

For the dry oil body spray pictured above, I also used the feather clipart I purchased from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy.

Draw your own labels for a DIY dry oil body spray to create a unique homemade gift for friends and family this holiday season.

You can also draw your own labels for your dry oil body sprays to create unique homemade gifts for friends and family this holiday season. Pictured above is the label I drew freehand for my dry oil body spray.

Bambi also drew her coffee inspired labels freehand.

Draw your own labels for a DIY dry oil body spray to create a unique homemade gift for friends and family this holiday season.

To create your labels simply sketch out your drawing onto blank sticker paper, using the bottle as a guide so you get the label size right. The color your drawing in with permanent markers or your other favorite medium. Cut out the label.

Draw your own labels for a DIY dry oil body spray to create a unique homemade gift for friends and family this holiday season.

Now take a clear or crystal clear sticker label and cut the label so it’s slightly larger than your image. Remove the backing from the clear sticker label and place it on top of your image so the image is fully covered. Trim off the excess label. (Alternately, if your labels are small enough, you can also do the same thing with packing tape.) Now adhere the label you just created to your dry body oil spray bottle. And you’re done!

Again, you’ll need to label your dry oil body sprays appropriately to meet state and federal laws if you plan to sell them.

Caffeinated Soap Recipe

What else can I make?

Need ideas for other fall bath and beauty recipes you can make using ingredients from the October For Soap’s Sake box? You can use the caffeine extract to make a DIY anti-puff eye roller, a DIY caffeinated soap with a coffee scrub center, and a DIY orange coconut coffee scrub. (You can also use the vanilla stabilizer to keep your caffeinated soap, above, from turning brown.)

You can use the marshmallow root powder to create herbal facial cleansing grains, glycerin cold process shaving soap, handmilled whiskey and tobacco caramel soap, cold process vanilla and fig shaving soap, cold process natural lanolin shaving soap, and cold process patchouli granola crunch soap.

The bronze brown mica can be used to create fall melt and pour soaps, lemon and ginger tinted lip balm, stamped cold process candied orange soaps, and stamped melt and pour conversation heart soaps.

Merlot Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.7 oz. grapeseed oil
.3 oz. castor oil
.2 oz. shea butter
.6 oz. beeswax
.1 oz. lanolin
1.5mL peppermint essential oil, optional
2 teaspoons red orange oil locking mica shimmer
1 teaspoon Diamond Dust (or similar) mica
1/2 teaspoon matte black oxide pigment powder

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until the wax has melted completely. (Alternately you can use a double boiler.)

Now weigh out the shea butter and lanolin and stir into the melted beeswax. If needed, heat the ingredients again to melt fully.

Next weigh out the grape seed oil and castor oil. Stir into the melted beeswax, lanolin and shea butter mixture.

If a scent is desired, use a graduated transfer pipette to add 1/5 mL of peppermint essential oil. Stir into the tinted lip balm mixture.

Finally you’ll add the colorants.

Use measuring spoons to measure out the colorants. Whisk into the melted lip balm ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Now pour into your containers. For this merlot tinted lip balm recipe I used .3 oz. eco-friendly brown paperboard push up lip balm tubes from SKS Bottle & Packaging. This recipe will fill seven of these tubes.

Allow the lip balms to cool and solidify completely, then cap and label. (You can easily halve this tinted lip balm recipe to yield 3 1/2 lip balms. The fourth of which can be poured into a metal tin or a smaller regular sized lip balm container.)

You can download the merlot tinted lip balm labels here. Then simply print onto a brown kraft full size label, then cut out the labels just inside the black lines and adhere to the lip balm tubes. You can find kraft labels in bulk at reasonable prices at WorldLabelThis merlot tinted lip balm recipe creates a super moisturizing tinted lip balm for lips that look and feel fabulous! Create your own in custom colors for your own personal style or give my own fun and flattering tinted lip balm recipe a try as is for a beautiful look perfect for parties or everyday wear.

Prefer a different color for your tinted lip balms? Experiment with your own favorite pigments and micas or even try using more or less pigment for a sheer tint to a full blow lipstick! The red orange oil locking mica shimmer also looks great solo.

My alternate recipe for my 2-in-1 lip stain and cream blush uses this same red orange oil locking shimmer mica for another fresh, fun look! For extra chapped lips, also try my winter healing body balm recipe that’s lovely for both lips and skin exposed to winter’s harsh elements.

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the beeswax pastilles and cocoa butter. Combine in a small glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power until the ingredients have melted. (Optionally you may also use a double boiler.) Be careful removing the Pyrex from the microwave – use a towel or pot holder – as it will be hot!

Next, weigh out the coconut oil and sweet almond oil into a small 50mL glass or plastic beaker. (These beakers make filling your lip balm tubes so much easier!) Pour the melted cocoa butter and beeswax into the beaker with the coconut oil and sweet almond oil. Mix with a fork or other thin utensil until the coconut oil has melted completely.

Now, using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out 5 mL of strawberry flavor oil and stir into the lip balm mixture.

Finally, if desired, add the mica for color. Add about 1/8 th of a teaspoon for a sheer tint, more for a darker color. Mix thoroughly.
