Whipped Shaving Cream

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

whipped shaving soapIf you are looking for a great homemade whipped shaving cream recipe, Natures Garden has one for you!  With a wonderfully rich and creamy lather, this thick shaving cream will leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.  In fact, after you make this shaving recipe, you will love it so much that you may never buy the store bought version again.  Plus, since this recipe is a homemade one, you can scent your shaving cream to your liking.  Natures Garden has a wonderful selection of body safe fragrance oils both feminine and masculine, and even a few truly unique ones too.

This light and fluffy cream will give you a close shave every time, and you only need a very small amount of the shaving cream to accomplish this.  Because this homemade shaving cream contains the ingredient Bentonite Clay, it makes the shaving lather slicker, allowing the razor a slippery layer to provide a sleek, nick free shave.  But, the bentonite clay benefits do not stop there.

Bentonite Clay also helps to sweep away impurities on the skin.  It can add a silky, polished feel to a product.  But, for scenting purposes in a finished product, the best benefit of Bentonite Clay is the fact that this clay allows for an even dispersion of scent throughout the whole product; working as a fixative.

Rich and exotic Mango Butter is also another stellar ingredient in this recipe.  Mango Butter is a luxurious butter that melts on the skin allowing for great moisturizing and softening effects.  The addition of this ingredient in your body products is even believed to reduce wrinkle development.

These two powerhouse ingredients together along with a few other necessities produce a whipped shaving cream that is very easy to make, very easy to use, and is a fraction of the cost of store bought kind.

To view the complete whipped shaving cream recipe, you can simply click on this link.  If you are interested in other easy to make, homemade bath and body products, candles, or home scenting products, please visit Natures Garden’s website.  The projects and instructions are listed under the Free Recipes and Classes area, and can be scented in an array of various fragrance oils; so there is something for everyone!

Fragrance Oil and Candle Making

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

fragrance oilWhen it comes to candle making, in order to have the best smelling candles, you must use concentrated fragrance oil.  There are a vast number of fragrance oil companies in the market, many of them sell good quality oils for candle making, and on the other hand there are some companies that sell lower cost fragrances which are usually diluted.  Never use any fragrance oils that are alcohol based for candle making.  Caution- there are companies that sell “potpourri fragrance oils”, these fragrance oils are about 50% concentrated.  They are cut with a product called DPG.  DPG (or dipropylene glycol) is used to dilute fragrance oils.  Do not use these types of fragrance oils for candle making, they will inhibit your candles from burning properly.

Once you have found a company that sells concentrated fragrance oils, you will only want to use 1 ounce to 1.5 ounces of candle scent per pound of wax.  As long as you have selected the right kind of wax- a high quality one- you will never need to use more than 1.5 ounces of candle scent per pound of wax.  Using more than the stated amount of fragrance oil in your candle wax will result in unused fragrance in the bottom of your pouring pot or candle container.  This is wasted fragrance oil that was not absorbed by your wax.

Natures Garden supplies 100% concentrated fragrance oils to its customers.  These scents were formulated by master perfumists, using aromatic chemicals and essential oils to create wonderfully smelling fragrances that can be used to make candles.  In fact, about 99% of Natures Garden’s fragrance oils also work in other applications besides candles.  This includes:  cosmetics, bath and body products, and even cold process soap.  Natures Garden is dedicated to providing its customers with unique, fine, fragrance oils at wholesale prices not retail prices.  Our company is able to sell these high quality oils at great prices because we are the largest supplier of fragrance oils in the USA, which has allowed us to achieve bulk buying power from our perfumists.  And then, we pass the savings on to our customers.  Our high quality, affordable-priced fragrance oils allow our customers to maintain high profit margins on their finished products.

Chemistry of Fragrance

Essential oils are 100% natural (usually plant derived).  These scenting oils are commonly attained by a process known as steam distillation.  Essential oils are very costly as compared to fragrance oils.  Fragrance oils came into existence because of these high costs.  Perfumists started replicating the aroma of certain essential oils by mixing the right combinations of over 3,000 various aromatic chemicals.  These aromatic chemicals are known as aldehydes and ketones.  Aldehydes and ketones are all polar to some degree.  It is actually impossible for fragrance oils to be NON Polar.  Every fragrance oil has some degree of polarity to them.  Yes, it is true that some fragrance oils will be more polar than others, but a fragrance oil can never be completely NON Polar.  Perfumists are able to create a fragrance oil that is less polar by using isopar solvents, but once again, there will still be a small degree of polarity from the aromatic chemicals used to form the fragrance oil.

Fragrance oils that are used to scent gel wax have to be on the lesser side of being polar.  A great tip for testing if a fragrance oil will work in gel wax is to first check the flashpoint.  The flashpoint of the oil has to be above 170 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, see if the fragrance oil will mix in mineral oil, if the solution becomes cloudy, the fragrance oil will not work.  If the solution is clear, the fragrance oil is gel wax compatible.

MSDS/IFRA/RIFM

We at Natures Garden want to keep you informed on every single fragrance oil we carry.  All of the fragrance oils sold by Natures Garden abide by the safety recommendations set forth by the IFRA and RIFM standards.  Natures Garden also supplies the MSDS information for each and every fragrance oil as well.  The MSDS and IFRA Certification of Compliance can be found on the website, under the fragrance performance- testing in various applications section.  Each MSDS and IFRA certificate can be easily printed right off the Natures Garden website.  EU customers are now provided EU allergen reports for all of our fragrances.

How to Make Scented Markers

Friday, August 16th, 2013
markers

Making scented markers is easy and fun. This is a great project for your little ones to let their creative drawings soar in color and scent.

It is time to celebrate!  The start of a new school year is quickly approaching and with that, it is also time to purchase your children’s school supplies.  So, why not add that little extra creative care to make your kids feel special!

Here is what you need: 
Crayola Markers TM (not the washable kind)
Disposable Pippettes
Fragrance Oil  (Choose any of Natures Garden’s Fragrance Oils to Coordinate with the colored markers you have.)

Although any of Natures Garden Fragrance Oils will work, here are a few of the favorites from the childhood scents category:
Best Friends Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Teal
Black Licorice Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Black
Blue Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Blue
Bubblegum Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Pink
Chocolate Chip Cookies Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Brown
Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Purple
Dreamsickle Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Orange
Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Gray
Green Apple Candy Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Green
Jammin Rock Candy Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Red
Sugar Cookies Fragrance Oil- color suggestion Yellow

Here are the Steps:

Step 1: One marker at a time, remove the bottom of the plastic marker encasement.

Step 2: Remove the long, cylinder-shaped marker ink pad from the plastic encasement.

Step 3: Using a transfer pipette, place at least 8 drops of fragrance oil onto each end of the marker ink pad, and place ink pad back into marker encasement. Place end cap back on the marker.

This will allow you to scent your markers whatever fragrance you would like them to be, and actually helps to refresh markers that are beginning to dry up. We have not tested this on washable markers since we believe that they are water soluble and won’t mix with fragrance oil; but we are not 100% sure that they would not work. If you find that washable markers also work, let us know!
