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.

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.

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.

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 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.
