Denise's Favorite Fragrance OilsDenise’s Favorite Fragrance Oils

Hey there! My name is Denise and I have been with Nature’s Garden for two and a half years now. I started out in the shipping department and have recently moved into customer service. I was recently asked to name my 10 favorite fragrance oils and I honestly had to stop and think because after working here for a while I have accumulated a lot of favorite fragrances, but these 10 are my go-to, all-time favorite fragrance oils starting with my ultimate favorite: Beach Daisies Fragrance Oil.  So, drum roll please…. Denise’s favorite fragrance oils.

Denise's Favorite Fragrance Oils: Beach Daisies Fragrance OilDenise’s Favorite Fragrance Oils: Beach Daisies Fragrance Oil

Beach Daisies Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden, will sweep you away to the beach; where you will smell the aromas of fresh spring flowers and green grass while walking on the warm sands.  Natures Garden’s beach daisies fragrance begins with top notes of Asian lemongrass, dune grass, and daisy petals; followed by middle notes of gardenia bloom, ylang ylang, and clove leaf; sitting on base notes of blond woods, amber sands, and sheer musk.

Next, when Nature’s Garden tested Beach Daisies fragrance oil in CP soap, we found there was some acceleration. However, there was no ricing, no separation, and no discoloration. We also found that it maintained a very strong scent retention after cure. Due to the acceleration of the soap batter, we suggest soaping at lower temperatures.

Beach Daisies Fragrance Oil Candle Color RecommendationBeach Daisies Fragrance Oil Candle Color Recommendation

If you chose to color your Beach Daisies Fragrance Oil candle, we suggest using 3 drops of yellow plus a little orange liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax. You can also shred an ample amount of yellow and orange color block into your melted wax. We highly suggest not using crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick and your candle may not burn properly.

4 Leaf Clover fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a wonderful floral ozony blend of clover, green grass, with hints of fresh cut wisteria. Your line would not be complete without “the luck of the clover”.  NG Original Fragrance!

Did you know?  The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common three-leaf clover. According to superstition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. Approximately 1 in every 10,000 clovers has the four-leaflet form. Clovers can have more than four leaflets. The most leaflets ever recorded is eighteen. According to legend, each leaflet represents something: the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck. Legend also holds that if a lady hangs a four-leaf clover on her door, the next man to come in will become her husband.

Next, during Natures Garden’s testing of 4-Leaf Clover fragrance oil in CP soap we found that there was moderate ricing and slight acceleration. If you are concerned about the acceleration, however, we suggest soaping at a lower temperature. There was no separation, it was pretty workable and so worth it! We found the scent was awesome with no final discoloration and the after a cure the scent was still nice and strong.

A cheerful, fall, and welcoming fragrance oil by Natures Garden Autumn Wreath starts out with top notes of pear, apple, peach and coconut with mid notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg; and followed by base notes of vanilla, cedar, musk, woods, pine and autumn leaves.

Did you know?  There are many different types of wreaths out there.  One common misconception is that they all need to be made out of evergreens.  This is not the case.  Autumn wreaths can be made from any type of flowers, leaves, or items found in your very own backyard.  Use your imagination and get creative with it.  Just beware not to use anything like eucalyptus or berries, as they tend to shed and wilt.

Denise’s Favorite Fragrance Oils: Apple Jack Peel Fragrance Oil

Apple Jack Peel has the wonderful aroma of fresh peeled apples with zesty top notes of lemon and grapefruit, middle notes of peach, orange, cinnamon and clove followed by base notes of maple, vanilla, cream, and musk. Apple Jack Peel fragrance oil is truly fantastic and a Nature’s Garden Best Seller!  

Did You Know?  Applejack is a very strong alcoholic beverage. This beverage originated in the American colonial era, which is believed to have roots from the French Apple Brandy Calvados.  Obviously, the beverage is made from apples, but first, the apples must be transformed into hard cider.  Then, that hard cider must be concentrated.  This can be done in two possible ways. First, there is the classic procedure of freeze distillation, also there is the option of true evaporative distillation. Either selection will work, but the actual word applejack comes from the word jacking which is one term for freeze distillation.

Christmas Coffee Wax Melts RecipeChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe

Our next wax melts recipe for Christmas was inspired by our favorite holiday blend coffee.  Not only does our favorite coffee use ground cinnamon and allspice, it also uses cocoa powder and vanilla!  Is your mouth watering just thinking about this delicious coffee?  Go ahead and prepare some Snickerdoodle Coffee, we’ll wait for you!  Are you ready?  Ok!  Now, get ready to make Natures Garden’s Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe.  This wax tart recipe was inspired by the glorious aroma of the actual coffee.  This layered wax melt recipe uses two of Natures Garden’s wonderful fragrance oils, Snickerdoodle Cookies Fragrance Oil and French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil.  Not only are these wax melts scented with two awesome fragrance oils, we also topped them with fresh coffee beans!  This recipe truly was brewed to perfection just for you!  Not only do they smell amazing, but they look totally adorable!

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Let’s Talk About the Ingredients We Are Using

Before we begin creating this recipe, let’s talk about some of the Natures Garden ingredients we are using.  Below, we will talk a little bit about our wax selection, molds, and fragrance oils used in our Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Natures Garden Snickerdoodle Cookies Fragrance OilChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Natures Garden Snickerdoodle Cookies Fragrance Oil

Snickerdoodle cookies are a holiday tradition in my house.  So, trust me when I say that this cookie fragrance oil smells just like the freshly baked cookies!  This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the fresh baked aroma of French vanilla with a touch of cinnamon sticks, gingerbread, and maple syrup.  In fact, one of our customers had this to say about Snickerdoodle Cookies Fragrance Oil, “This is the strongest snickerdoodle scent I have ever used. It is perfect for my soy wax tarts. I highly recommend this cookie fragrance oil.”

 

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Natures Garden French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance OilChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Natures Garden French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil

Our French vanilla coffee scent will have you craving the real thing.  This coffee scent is the perfect blend of freshly brewed coffee and warm creamy vanilla.  You will not be disappointed, maybe thirsty, but not disappointed.  This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a sugary, vanilla aroma with just the right amount of fresh brewed coffee. We brew this fragrance oil to perfection just for you!  We were not surprised when one client said this about French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil, “Not an over strong smell of coffee, just the right amount with a touch of vanilla. Will be getting this one again, and again. Favorite with tart ‘melts’, throws very well. Not overpowering, just right….thanks for this one.”

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss WaxChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Wax

I would like to take a moment to talk about the wax that we will be using today.  We are often asked by our client some of the differences in the waxes that we carry.  Today, I will tell you a little bit about our Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.  This particular wax is used when creating melts that will be used in your burner, or for pillars and votive candles.

Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax is soy wax and paraffin wax blend.  While many people love natural soy waxes, it can sometimes be difficult to work with.  So, this wax is like the best of both worlds.  Straight soy wax can have a rough finish and naturally frost.  In addition, it can sometimes be difficult to get the absolute best hot scent throw.  Well, this pillar wax also contains paraffin wax.  The benefit of paraffin wax is that it helps give a wonderful scent throw.  Additionally, it gives the wax a nice and smooth creamy finish.

Often we are asked for recommendations on wax for wax tarts.  Well, the Pillar of Bliss wax is the one that I personally use.  Since it is a pillar wax, it will pop out of your molds very nicely.  When you use a container wax for tarts it doesn’t come out of the jars as easily.  This is because container waxes are meant to be softer so that they cling easily to your candle jars, but will do the same when used in candle molds.  So, it can be difficult to remove container waxes from molds.  My personal rule of thumb, if it is going into a mold or clamshell, use a pillar wax.  In addition, the Pillar of Bliss Wax comes in a granulated form, making it very easy to work with.  Finally, it has an amazing scent throw and a nice creamy finish.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Silicone Mini Muffins MoldsChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Silicone Mini Muffins Molds

I absolutely love working with silicone molds.  They are durable and make removing the wax melts a breeze.  In addition, they are actually made for baking so they can handle the heat of the hot candle wax.  Some plastic molds can be a little more difficult to work with, requiring you to pour at a much lower temperature. If you haven’t tried working with silicone molds yet, I highly recommend them.  I love them for candle making, soap making, and cosmetic making.  Now, this candle making recipe will create 24 wax melts for your burner.  You will need a total of two of the mini muffin silicone molds for the Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Preparations

Now, that we have talked about some of the ingredients we are using, let’s begin.  First, prepare your work area.  You want to make sure you have a clear and also clean area to work in.  Then, you are ready to begin preparing your handmade coffee wax tarts.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Prepare the Bottom Layer of the Wax Melts

The bottom layer of your coffee wax tarts will be colored a coffee brown color.  In addition, it will be scented with Snickerdoodle Cookies Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden Candle Making Supplies.  So, we will begin by preparing this brown layer of your wax melts.  You will need to get two of your mini muffins silicone molds ready.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Preparing the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the Bottom Snickerdoodle LayerChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Preparing the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the Bottom Snickerdoodle Layer

We begin by preparing the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the bottom snickerdoodle layer. We will use a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  You will need to put a few inches of water in your pot. Turn your stove top on to heat the water.  Next, weigh out 345 grams of the pillar wax using your pouring pot.  Then, place your pouring pot inside the warmed water.  Finally, melt the candle wax to 195 degrees.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Color the Wax for the Bottom Snickerdoodle LayerChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Color the Wax for the Bottom Snickerdoodle Layer

Next, we will color the wax for the bottom snickerdoodle layer.  You want to color your wax melts at the temperature of 195 degrees Fahrenheit. We will be using two liquid candle dyes, both Natures Garden Spectrum brown and black liquid candle dyes.

To your melted candle wax, add 2 drops of black liquid candle colorant and 3 drops of the brown liquid candle dye.  Then, mix to fully disperse the color.  Once you have finished you will need to wait for the temperature of your candle wax to drop to 185 degrees Fahrenheit before moving on.
Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Snickerdoodle Fragrance Oil to the Bottom Layer of WaxChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Snickerdoodle Fragrance Oil to the Bottom Layer of Wax

Next, we will be adding the Snickerdoodle Fragrance Oil to the bottom layer of wax.  For this recipe, we will be using 41 grams of Natures Garden’s Snickerdoodle Fragrance Oil.  So, when your wax is at 185 degrees Fahrenheit, go ahead and add the Snickerdoodle scent.  Then, mix with a mixing spoon to completely blend the fragrance oil with the candle wax.  You want to stir for about 30 seconds.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Pouring the Bottom Snickerdoodle Layer of WaxChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Pouring the Bottom Snickerdoodle Layer of Wax
 Now, we will be pouring the bottom snickerdoodle layer of wax.  Before pouring, allow the temperature of the candle wax to drop to about 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once the Pillar of Bliss is at the proper temperature, fill the 24 cavities of your silicone mini muffin mold about 3/4 of the way full.  Finally, allow this layer to fully setup before beginning the next layer.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Prepare the Top Layer of the Wax Melts

The top layer of your wax tarts will be left uncolored.  However, it will be scented with French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil.  So, we will begin preparing this layer of your wax melt.  You will pour this layer directly on top of the brown layer of your melt in your mini muffins silicone mold ready.  It will be the top white layer of your wax melts.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Preparing the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the Top French Vanilla LayerChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Preparing the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the Top French Vanilla Layer

We begin by Preparing the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the top vanilla coffee layer. We will use a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  Again, you will need to put a few inches of water in your pot. Turn your stove top on to heat the water.  Next, weigh out 258 grams of the pillar wax using your pouring pot.  Then, place your pouring pot inside the warmed water.  Finally, melt the candle wax to 185 degrees.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil to the Top Layer of WaxChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil to the Top Layer of Wax

Next, we will be adding the French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil to the Top layer of wax.  For this recipe, we will be using 34 grams of Natures Garden’s French Vanilla Coffee Fragrance Oil.  So, when your wax is at 185 degrees Fahrenheit, go ahead and add the French Vanilla Coffee scent.  Then, mix with a mixing spoon to completely blend the fragrance oil with the candle wax.  You want to stir for about 30 seconds.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Pouring the Top French Vanilla Coffee Layer of Wax

Now, we will be pouring the top French vanilla coffee layer of wax.  Before pouring the candle wax, allow the temperature of the candle wax to drop to about 150 degrees Fahrenheit this time.  By pouring at a lower temperature, the heated wax will not melt the previous layer.  Once the pillar of bliss is at the proper temperature, fill each of the 24 cavities of your silicone mini muffin mold the rest of the way.

 

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Fresh Coffee BeansChristmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Fresh Coffee Beans

Finally, you will be adding a decorative touch to your wax melts.  This will be in the form of fresh whole coffee beans.  You will need to quickly add the coffee beans to the top of your wax melts.  We used about seven or eight beans for each wax melt.  You will want to do this as soon as you pour your last tart.  So, after you have poured your white layer, begin adding the coffee beans.  Once you have added coffee beans to each melt, simply allow your melts to setup.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Fresh Coffee BeansOnce your Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts have setup make sure you allow them to cure for a few days before using them.  Finally, after your wax melts have cured, they are ready to use.  To use your wax tarts, simply place one in your wax burner and enjoy the wonderful holiday coffee aroma.

Scale
Pot (for double boiler)
Glass Mug
Toothpicks

Paper Bowl
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for the Main Candle

455 grams Joy Wax
45 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil
Toothpick Spectrum Yellow Liquid Candle Dye
Toothpick Spectrum Brown Liquid Candle Dye

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for Whipped Portion of Candle

85 grams Joy Wax
8 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Jar for the Candle

First, prepare your mug.  We use a glass mug that we picked up at our local grocery store.  Our mug was slightly under 3.5 inches in diameter.  So, we used a CD-12 wick in our mug.  The size of the wick that you use will depend upon the diameter of the mug you are using for your candle.  While I can’t tell you the exact size you will need, I can tell you that I highly recommend the CD candle wicks when using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Our size recommendations, based on diameter, can be found in the description of our CD candle wicks at the link in the ingredients list above.
Once you have determined your wick size, use a hot glue gun to adhere the candle wick to the bottom of your jar.  You will want to make sure the wick is centered in the mug.  Once your wick is in place unplug your hot glue gun and move on to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Candle Wax For the Base of the CandleEggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Candle Wax For the Base of the Candle

Now, let’s prepare our Joy Wax.  In order to melt the Joy Wax, we will use a double boiler.  This will slowly melt the wax and prevent it form scorching.  You will need to first prepare a pot of water. The pot only needs to be filled with a few inches of water. Heat the water.  Once you have your wax weighed out, you will need to place your pouring pot inside the hot water to melt the wax.
So, in your pouring pot, weigh out 455 grams of Joy Wax.  Then, place the pouring pot inside the pot containing the water.  Allow the wax to melt.  Once the temperature reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the pot from the heat.

Next, we will be adding our colorant.  When using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax the colorant should be added at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, for this candle recipe we will need both Spectrum yellow candle dye and Spectrum brown liquid candle dye.  Now, we only need a little bit of each.  While it can be hard to get just a small amount of liquid candle dye out with a dropper, it is not impossible.  In order to get just a small amount you will simply need a couple of toothpicks.  First, we will add the yellow candle colorant.  Go ahead and dip your first toothpick into the yellow colorant.  Then, dip the yellow colorant into the candle wax.  Throw this toothpick in the trash.  Next, dip your second toothpick into the brown candle dye.  Then, dip this same toothpick into the candle wax.  Throw your second toothpick into the garbage.  Finally, mix to fully disperse the candle colorants.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance OilEggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance Oil

When working with Joy Wax, we suggest adding your fragrance oil between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.  So, today, we will be using Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  We couldn’t create an eggnog candle without an eggnog scent, right?  So, we will be using 10% fragrance oil for this recipe.  So, when your wax is at the correct temperature, add 45 grams of your Natures Garden Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  Then, make sure you mix the candle wax for about 30 seconds.  This will ensure that your eggnog scent is completely blended with the candle wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle Wax

Now, we will be pouring our candle wax.  When using Joy Wax, we recommend pouring your candle wax in warmed jars.  By warming your candle jars before pouring into them, it will help your wax to cling very nicely to your jars.  This is because your wax cools very slowly, allowing time for air bubble to release from the wax and thus the wax adhere to the walls of the jars better.  You want to put your jars into the oven at the very lowest setting.  So, turn your oven on the lowest temperature possible.  Then, place the jars on a pan and in the oven for just a few minutes. Do not allow them to get hot, they only need to be warm.

When pouring the wax, the temperature should be between 160 degrees Fahrenheit and 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your candle wax reaches this temperature, pour the wax into your jar.  Make sure your wick is centered and secured in the center.  I use a fine tooth comb to keep my wicks in place.  Place the comb across the jar’s opening and put the wick centered in between the teeth of the comb.  Lastly, allow the candle wax to setup before moving to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Melting the Wax for the Whipped Topping

Joy wax can easily be used as a whipped topping on your candles.  For this particular recipe, we will be using 85 grams of Joy Wax.  However, we will be leaving this portion of the candle uncolored.  Once again, we will be using a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  So, go ahead and melt the wax using this method. However, this time bring the wax to a temperature between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Joy Wax does not need to get any hotter since we are not adding any candle colorants to it.

Now, we will be adding fragrance oil to the whipped topping portion of the candle wax.  Once your candle wax temperature is between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit, add 8 grams of the Eggnog scent.  Then, mix the fragrance oil into the wax with a clean mixing spoon.  Stir for about 30 second to be sure that the Eggnog Fragrance Oil is completely mixed with the Joy Wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

Next, we will begin whipping the Joy Wax.  This portion of the wax will be placed on the top of our main candle.  This will give your candle the look of a creamy top that you see on a glass of eggnog.  While it may look more complicated, all the topping requires is cooled and whipped Joy Wax.  All you will need is the candle wax and a mixing spoon.

 

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

So, you want to allow your Joy Wax to cool.  As it cools stir it periodically.  Once it is at a thicker consistency, begin mixing until it takes on a whipped topping type consistency. Once the Joy Wax has reached this consistency, use a spoon to scoop it on top of your setup candle.  While you are topping the candle, make sure you keep your candle wick centered.

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing TouchesEggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing Touches

There are a couple of things we will be adding to the candle to finish it off.  First, we will be adding a small cinnamon stick.  I should note that this will need to be removed prior to burning, but it does give your candle an adorable finishing touch.  We will also be grinding and adding cinnamon to the top of the candle.

First, we will add a cinnamon stick.  Place the cinnamon stick vertically, but slightly angled right inside your candle.  It should stick out slightly though.  You want it to look like it is floating in your jar.

In addition, we will need to grind just a little bit of a cinnamon stick.  We will grind the cinnamon using a cheese grater.  While yes, we could use pre-made ground cinnamon, it won’t be as coarse or look as nice.  So, go ahead and grind just a small amount of the cinnamon.  To do this, place your cinnamon stick horizontally across your grater and move it across the grater quickly.  Finally, sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top of the candle.  Then, give your wick and little curl and your candle is finished.  Just remember to let the candle cure for a few day before using it or selling it.  This will ensure that your candle’s scent is a strong as possible.

Are you now craving the real thing?  I have tried many eggnog recipes myself.  Personally, my favorite eggnog recipe is this eggnog recipe from Tastes Batter From Scratch.  It is thick, creamy, and delicious.  It is sure to be an instant hit!

25 Ways to Use Peppermint25 Ways to Use Peppermint

We all have our passions. Well for me, at this time of year, it’s peppermint.  There is just something about the smell and taste of peppermint that just makes me feel rejuvenated and excited for the holiday season.  Some love pumpkin…pumpkin carving, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin soaps, the list could go on and on.  And for those who have a love for pumpkin, you can check out ways to use pumpkin here. Others, though, have a passion for peppermint. So, today, we will talk about peppermint and show you 25 ways to use peppermint.

You know that warm feeling you get when it’s snowing and freezing outside and you curl up on the couch with a big fluffy blanket? That is the same feeling I get when I drink a hot peppermint mocha coffee.  I even make my nieces peppermint hot cocoa each year, topped with whipped cream and peppermint pieces.  They have loved it since they were toddlers. They are now teenagers, beginning to drive, growing up and finding their way through life, but I love that they still come over for peppermint mochas and have girl time with their aunt. To me, that is the best feeling in the world.

25 Ways to Use Peppermint: Natural Peppermint

First, let’s look at the natural peppermint herb as well as the essential oil.  Peppermint leaves are fabulous when used in natural cosmetics and homemade soap. However, it is also used in other industries as well.  It is believed that some stomach discomfort and nervousness can be relieved by drinking tea made with equal parts of spearmint and peppermint leaves and honey. Peppermint contains the active ingredient, menthol, which is thought to loosen phlegm and soothe coughs. In fact, peppermint tea is believed to relieve the pressure caused by migraine headaches. The leaves of peppermint are frequently added to eye pillow formulas to assist in relieving headaches. Since peppermint produces a cooling and numbing effect on the skin, it is sometimes used in body cream formulations to help with skin irritations. You can read all about peppermint, it uses in many industries and its benefits here.

Peppermint Leaf Cut and Sifted25 Ways to Use Peppermint: Peppermint Leaf Cut and Sifted

There are so many ways peppermint can be incorporated into your handmade cosmetic recipes.  The leaves can be infused into your products with wonderful results.  Personally, peppermint is one of my favorite herbs to work with.  I often infuse it into my lotions and soaps and I even love peppermint tea.

Peppermint Leaf Powder25 Ways to Use Peppermint: Peppermint Leaf Powder

Peppermint Leaf Powder can be used to naturally color soaps, bath bombs, and other natural cosmetics. It is also used for its many benefits in these same products.  Many use it in bath teas or even herbal infusions.
