Creamy Coconut & Fig Seed Body Scrub

Super Gentle & Moisturizing!!!
I really enjoy using body scrubs to exfoliate and moisturize my skin and I usually make a salt or sugar scrub. I realize that not everyone can use a truly abrasive scrub as they may have sensitive skin that requires a very gentle and moisturizing treatment.  This recipe is designed for the folks that need a cross between a lotion and a gentle manual exfoliation treatment.  A good ingredient to use is Formulator Sample Shop's Fig Seeds. Fig seeds are gentle yet tough enough to help rid the skin of dead cells and help reveal a glowing healthy complexion.  You can find out more about fig seeds HERE.

You need 3/4 cup distilled water and 2 teaspoons of Mountain Rose Herbs Vegetable Glycerine. You can buy the vegetable glycerine HERE.  These two ingredients will be for the liquid phase.  Vegetable glycerine is helpful in pulling oxygen into the skin and helping it to retain moisture.
You need 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.  I found a really good deal on organic coconut oil from Costco a few weeks ago.  I cook with coconut oil a lot.

You need 1 teaspoon of Mountain Rose Herbs Stearic Acid.  You can buy it HERE.  It is used to help the formula emulsify and remain creamy.

You need 2 heaping teaspoons of Mountain Rose Herbs Emulsifying Wax.  You can buy it HERE.  I like the Mountain Rose Herbs brand because it is vegetable based and is sourced from naturally occurring fats and esters and is ideal for  blending recipes that contain oil and water.

You need 1 teaspoon of Mountain Rose Herbs Liquid Lecithin. You can buy it HERE.  It is used to help thicken and emulsify the recipe.

You need 1 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Vitamin E Oil.  You can buy it HERE.

You will need 1 tablespoon Coconut Extract. I buy mine from Whole Foods. This gives the scrub a delicious coconut aroma and is all natural.

I used 10 grams of Fig Seeds that I received as a sample from the Formulator Sample Shop.  I really like how gentle and effective fig seeds work at exfoliating the skin.  You can order them by visiting them online at www.formulatorsampleshop.com.

Directions:

1. Measure the distilled water and vegetable glycerine into a glass measuring cup and sit this in a saucepan containing a few inches of simmering water.


2. Measure out the coconut oil, stearic acid, liquid lecithin and emulsifying wax into a glass measuring cup and sit it in a saucepan containing a few inches of simmering water.

3. When both mixtures have reached a temperate 160 degrees F, remove them both from the simmering water.

4. Carefully pour the oil mixture into a heatproof mixing bowl and begin mixing with a hand-held mixer set on medium speed.

5. Carefully add the water and glycerin, and continue to mix for 5 minutes.

6. Once it cools to 100 degrees F, add in the Vitamin E and the Coconut Extract, mix well.

7. I added in Leucidal® Liquid SF that I received from the Formulator Sample Shop as a natural anti-microbial to help inhibit the growth of a variety of bacteria and fungi that often like to move into water based recipes.  This particular ingredient is on the Whole Foods Acceptable Premium Preservative List.  I am still going to keep my Creamy Coconut & Fig Seed Body Scrub in the refrigerator and use it within two weeks (and that is all you need to do too!) simply because I won't know 100% sure it is germ-free even with the preservative unless I send it to the lab for testing.  I used the preservative at 4% rate.  You can find out more about this and other natural anti-microbial options by visiting www.formulatorsampleshop.com.

8. Sprinkle in the fig seeds and stir well to combine.

9. Transfer to a sanitized container with a lid and store in the fridge for best results.  I apply a generous amount all over my body and massage in gentle circular motions to exfoliate my skin. I then rinse the scrub away in a warm shower (be careful as your tub or shower may become slippery) and pat dry. My skin is left feeling super smooth and moisturized and smelling like sweet coconut.


I hope you enjoy making and using this recipe. Let me know how much you like it or email me at freshpickedbeauty@gmail.com if you have any questions.  Cheers!!!

Coconut and Lemon Hand Sanitizer Spray

My recipe for an all-natural D.I.Y Coconut and Lemon Hand Sanitizer combines the germ fighting power of grain alcohol with the delicious aromas of coconut extract and lemon essential oil.  I added in a tiny bit of vegetable glycerine to leave your hands feeling smooth.  You will need 151 Vodka to ensure proper germ fighting power.

151 Proof Grain Alcohol is 75.5% alcohol and you need at least 62% alcohol in order to kill germs.  Most hand sanitizers are at least 62%.

I also used Flavorganics Organic Coconut Extract.  This gives the recipe a fresh coconut fragrance and it is all natural.  I found this at my local Whole Foods market.

I used a 2 ounce amber glass spray bottle.  These are refillable and eco friendly. You can order them online.

I also used Mountain Rose Herbs Lemon Essential Oil and Mountain Rose Herbs Vegetable Glycerine. You can order both of these ingredients online HERE.

Coconut and Lemon Hand Sanitizer Spray
makes 2 ounces

2 ounces of 151 Proof Grain Alcohol
1 teaspoon Organic Coconut Extract
1/8 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Vegetable Glycerine
7 drops Mountain Rose Herbs Lemon Essential Oil

Mix all ingredients into a small spray bottle.  Shake well.  To use: Mist several sprays all over your hands and rub hands together until dry. Avoid getting it into eyes or mouth. Keep out of reach of children.  Product is highly flammable so avoid spraying near heat sources or direct flame. Clean hands are happy hands!!!

Velvety Rich Body Butter

This recipe yields a very thick and creamy body butter that is designed for dry skin that needs a major dose of moisture! It goes on like velvet and works all day to protect and soothe your parched skin.  You are going to LOVE this awesome cream because it is scented with delicious rose absolute and helichrysum essential oil! This makes about 7 ounces of product.

My body butter recipe has a double dose of healing helichrysum because it has both the hydrosol which according to Mountain Rose Herbs..."This divine hydrosol smells much like a diluted version of its essential oil counterpart. It has a dry-green floral aroma with earthy tea-like back notes, which some consider to be an acquired odor. The similarities with the essential oil make this hydrosol a cost effective alternative to incorporating the healing powers of this little flower into skin care formulations and perfume blends." and it has a small amount of Helichrysum essential oil which according to Mountain Rose Herbs...."The word helichrysum is named after the golden yellow flowers of the plant, and comes from the Greek words helios meaning sun and chrysos meaning gold. The common name, immortelle, also comes from the flowers, because they are long lasting blossoms that do not wither easily." You can buy both the essential oil and the hydrosol from Mountain Rose Herbs

I used Shea Butter in my recipes because according to Mountain Rose Herbs..."This unrefined butter is derived from the vegetable fat of the Karite Tree. The first choice in natural skin care and fine body care products, our certified organic shea butter forms a breathable, water-resistant film and is the leading natural product for moisturizing. A wonderful base for cosmetic recipes or used as a stand alone application, this comes highly recommended for those concerned about naturally healthy skin. Our shea butter is hand harvested, certified organic, expeller pressed, and is imported directly from the processor." You can buy this wonderful ingredient directly from Mountain Rose Herbs (it is where I buy mine!). 

Velvety Rich Body Butter
1/2 cup Mountain Rose Herbs Helichrysum Hydrosol
1 tablespoon Mountain Rose Herbs Avocado Oil
1 tablespoon Mountain Rose Herbs Meadow foam Oil
2 tablespoons Mountain Rose Herbs Shea Butter
2 heaping teaspoons Mountain Rose Herbs Stearic Acid
1/2 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Liquid Lecithin
1 heaping tablespoon Mountain Rose Herbs Emulsifying Wax NF
1 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Vitamin E Oil
2 drops Mountain Rose Herbs Rose Absolute 
2 drops Mountain Rose Herbs Helichrysum Essential Oil 
Natural Preservative if desired (*Follow manufacturer's directions)

Measure the hydrosol into a glass measuring cup and sit this in a saucepan containing a few inches of simmering water.  Measure the avocado oil, meadow foam oil, Shea butter, Stearic acid, liquid lecithin and emulsifying wax NF into a glass measuring cup and sit it in a saucepan with a few inches of simmering water. When both mixtures have reached a temperature of 160 degrees F and have the butters and waxes have fully melted, remove the heat.  Carefully pour the oil mixture into a heatproof mixing bowl and begin mixing with a hand-held mixer set on medium speed.  Carefully add the warm hydras and continue to mix for 5 minutes.  Add in the Vitamin E, rose absolute and Helichrysum and mix well.  Transfer the finished body butter to a sanitized glass jar.  Store in the refrigerator and use within 15 days.

Get silky smooth skin with my Whipped Lavender-Kissed Shea Butter Mousse
It is almost the start of "Leg Shaving Season"!

Place the Calendula infused sweet almond oil, Shea butter, and coconut oil into a double boiler and heat until all ingredients are just melted.  Remove from the heat. Stir in the Argan oil.
