Autumn is a wonderful time to work on bath and body products. The cool weather, warm colors, and inspiring scents and sounds of the season are perfect for getting you in a creative mood. If you are formulating for your business the Fall is also an important time to stock up on customer favorites and experiment with new products you plan to launch for the holiday season. The following projects are six of our favorites for this time of year. Each one captures some of the beauty that makes Autumn such a glorious season!
Whipped Tamanu & Shea Butter
Whipped Shea Butter is a staple in natural skin care. This recipe kicks it up a notch by incorporating the soothing and moisturizing powers of Tamanu Oil. This body butter smells gorgeous as-is, but can be scented with a light aroma such as vanilla or ylang ylang to add depth.
Almond Chickpea Sugar Scrub
Chickpea Flour (also called Besan or Gram Flour) is a hot ingredient lately due to the rising popularity of besan facials and ayurvedic skin care. This simple scrub combines Chickpea Flour with moisturizing Sweet Almond Oil, exfoliating natural sugar, and a touch of rose.
Warming Ginger Carrot Body Balm
When Autumn's chill starts to get to you a warming balm using nourishing carrot oil and ginger essential oil might be just the thing to cheer you up. The stimulating essential oils and conditioning carrier oils in this formulation are superb for targeted moisturizing and massage.
Thai Bath Tea
Nothing warms body and soul quite like a soak in the tub - except perhaps a nice cup of tea. This project combines the best of both worlds by infusing bath water with warming herbs and spices.
Holiday Spice Bath Truffles
These gorgeous little bath melts combine just about everything you'd find in a dream bath. Whole Milk, moisturizing butters, Sea Salt, and a touch of sweet spicy aroma. These truly are treats for the tub.
Ginger Honey Pedi-Scrub
Flip-flop season has ended but it doesn't make it a good time to neglect your feet. A nice, warming pedicure scrub is a great excuse to give those thick socks and heavy boots a break.
