15 Best St. Patrick's Day Fragrance Oils15 Best St. Patrick’s Day Fragrance Oils

Traditionally, spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 21, but to me the unofficial start to spring is St. Patrick’s day. I think the reason for that is St. Patrick’s Day color is green and the official “flower” is the shamrock and to me that says spring is arriving! What started out as a religious feast day in the 17th century has turned into a worldwide celebration of parades, wearing o’ the green, music, dancing and of course eating corned beef and cabbage! (My personal favorite!) So let’s celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with some fresh new fragrances to add to your line of soaps. Here are Nature’s Garden’s 15 Best  St. Patrick’s Day fragrance oils. Enjoy exploring some fun ways to help inspire you to create.

10 Ways to Use Safflower Oil10 Ways to Use Safflower Oil

Most of those that are on a special diet low in fat and cholesterol could probably tell you that safflower oil is awesome for cooking with. It’s light, odorless, colorless and it lets the taste of your food shine through. However, safflower oil is also amazing in cosmetics, hair care products and in soap! Since it is so light, it absorbs easily with no greasiness and it locks in that moisture to keep your skin hydrated and healthy looking. Safflower oil is high in linoleic acid and in oleic acid, both excellent for fighting acne and helping regenerate new skin cells to help keep you looking young and fresh. It’s also amazing in hair care products or even as an oil treatment for your hair. Safflower oil helps keep your hair soft, shiny, moisturized and also improves hair growth.

Growing out your natural nails can be difficult. So, it is especially frustrating when your nails begin to split and peel. This splitting may be caused by harsh nail beauty products or even using too much nail polish remover, as these sorts of things can dry out your nails. This means that we are diminishing the oils that help your nails stay strong and healthy.
