Cracklin Birch Fragrance OilCracklin Birch Fragrance Oil- Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Cracklin Birch Fragrance Oil is not only a Natures Garden original fragrance, but a best seller too! Personally, this is one of my favorite scents at Nature’s Garden as well. This fragrance oil reminds me of warm summer nights sitting under the stars. Sitting around a fire to enjoy the not so quiet silence filled by the creatures in the night and the soft crackling of the flames engulfing everything in its path. There isn’t a need to think and worries are put to the side just long enough to enjoy this peaceful moment.

What does Cracklin’ Birch Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is outdoors on a winter day…Simply amazing if we may say so ourselves!  Cracklin Birch fragrance begins with top notes of bergamot, orange, and lemon; with middle notes of geranium, lily, and rose; and base notes of patchouli, vetiver, and tonka beans.  This fragrance is one of the most well-rounded fragrances we have ever smelled. An NG Original Fragrance!  A Best Seller!

Top Notes: bergamot, orange, lemon
Mid Notes: geranium, lily, rose
Base Notes: patchouli, vetiver, tonka beans

How Do Our Customers Use Cracklin’ Birch Fragrance Oil?

Room scenting products can be made using this scent. Room scenters can incorporate up to 50% of this fragrance in potpourri or incense. Also, this fragrance oil is nice and strong in aroma beads. Homemade candle crafters can use up to 10% of this fragrance with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax. This scent will perform perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Additionally, this fragrance oil is compatible with gel wax. We suggest using a very small amount of brown liquid candle dye and black liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Bath and body products can be made using this fragrance oil. Bath gels and oils were found to perform well with 5% of fragrance added. Soap makers can use up to 5% in cold process soaps or melt and pour soaps. Our cp soap results have shown that no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. Scent retention of this bar is very strong. Although the bar discolors to a light tan, vanilla white stabilizer may not completely fix the issue very much due to the low percentage of vanillin at 0.3%. Since there are over 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products, the culprit is most likely a different component. We suggest using a small amount of brown soap colorant and  black soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Remember to never use candle dye in any body products as they aren’t.

There are many other products you can incorporate this scent into. First off you can make your own perfumes, which has shown to perform well with this fragrance oil at a maximum 5%. Also, you can scent your own lotions or cleaning supplies with a maximum of 5%.

Country Bumpkin Fragrance OilCountry Bumpkin Fragrance Oil– Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Country Bumpkin Fragrance Oil is not only a Nature’s Garden original scent, but it’s a bestseller as well! Which makes a lot of  sense, because this delicious fragrance is decadent enough to get my mouth watering. It has me wishing for the taste of those warm apples fresh from the orchard and smothered in warm, gooey goodness in a place where nothing matters, but good times, great food, and a beautiful scenery.

What Does Country Bumpkin Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a wonderful complex blend of apples, candied yams, marshmallows, sweet cream butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, crushed cinnamon bark and fresh cloves.  Bring the country home to you.  An NG Original!  A Best Seller!

Top Notes: apples
Mid Notes:  candied yams, cinnamon bark, clove, nutmeg
Base Notes:  marshmallow, sweet cream butter, brown sugar

How Do Our Customers Use Country Bumpkin Fragrance Oil?

Candle crafters can use up to 10% in either vegetable of paraffin wax. This fragrance has shown to perform perfectly in joy wax and wow wax. Also, it is nice and strong in soy wax. For this scent we suggest using four drops of orange plus one drop of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of an orange color block and brown color block into your melted wax. Make sure not to use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Room scenters can include up to 50% of this fragrance oil in potpourri and incense. Also, this scent is nice and strong in aroma beads. However, gel wax is not compatible with this scent.

If you intend to create bath and body products, then please note that the body safe percentage is lower for our Country Bumpkin fragrance oil. Bath gels, bath oils, and lotions can have a maximum of 0.05% to be considered body safe. Perfumes have performed perfectly with 0.05% of this fragrance. Also, cleaners can be created using the body safe percentage of 0.05%.

Homemade soap crafters can also use 0.05% at the absolute most. Although you are able to incorporate 0.05% of this fragrance into cold process soap, we did not test this fragrance due to its low body safe percentage. Since this fragrance is so popular, I’d like to mention that just because we didn’t test this bar doesn’t mean you can’t use this spicy scent if you enjoy it. You may want to do a test batch before you commit to a large batch to make sure the bar turns out right for you. We are unsure whether this bar would discolor. If the 1% vanillin content does discolor the bar at all, then you can try to use vanilla white stabilizer to counter act its effect. We recommend using orange soap colorant and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products as they are not body safe.

So, why not take a little break to make yourself something great and indulge in a delectable scent?

IMG_0154Caitlyn Favorite Fragrances

Hi my name is Caitlyn and I am a senior at Fairview High School. My friend Kacie and I are shadowing Nature’s Garden for our senior project. Senior project at Fairview is optional, but we are given the freedom to choose a business of our liking to shadow for the last two weeks of the school year. Kacie and I wanted to do something different and fun so when we found Nature’s Garden we thought it was the perfect fit. On our first day we had the opportunity to spend time at the Fragrance Bar where we got to sample the smells of Nature’s Garden’s many fragrance oils. It was tough, but I happened to choose my top ten scents in order to share with you blog readers!

Black-tieBlack Tie Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of an accomplished, successful man, who is not afraid of taking risks.  Natures Garden’s black tie fragrance begins with top notes of Kaffir lime, lemon, and ozonic notes;  followed by middle notes of basil, black pepper, and cucumber;  sitting on base notes of vetiver and spice.

300x300-blue-raspberry-slushieBlue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance OilRemember the blue raspberry snow-cones you enjoyed as a child?  How about those fabulous blue raspberry slushies that can still be enjoyed at most movie theaters?  This fragrance captures the aroma of ripened raspberries, sugary cotton candy, and the effervescence of crushed ice.  This trip back to childhood truly smells good enough to eat…but better not.

300x300-Cool-Water-TypeCool Water Type Fragrance Oil – Compare Natures Garden’s Cool Water Type fragrance oil to the famous cologne for men.  Cool Water is classified as a refreshing, spicy, lavender, ambery fragrance. This masculine scent possesses a blend of lavender, jasmine, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood.

 

300x300-Country GardenCountry Garden Fragrance Oil – This fresh, romantic, floral fragrance oil by Natures Garden is fantastic during the whole year! This fragrance begins with top notes of fresh green clover, and ivy with middle notes of romantic snapdragon, rose petals, and carnations; ending with base notes of white musk and fig leaves. 

 

Fresh-Brewed-CoffeeFresh Brewed Coffee (Original) Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of strong black fresh brewed Arabica coffee beans. This is our original fresh brewed coffee fragrance.  Coffee fragrances do have base notes of vanilla in them, which may smell somewhat chocolately.

 

Funnel-CakeFunnel Cake Fragrance Oil – This quintessential state fair fragrance oil is a treat!  This yummy scent is a combination of fried dough sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon and the delicious taste of nostalgia.

 

 

Hazelnut-CoffeeHazelnut Coffee Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an aroma of freshly brewed Arabica coffee beans combined with creamy vanilla with a base note of nutty hazelnuts.
