Blackberry Jam FragranceBlackberry Jam Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil is a bestselling fragrance.  One might ask “what is the difference between jam and jelly.  Jam, jelly and preserves are all made with fruit that is mixed with sugar and pectin, an indigestible carbohydrate or fiber.  Pectin can be found in the cell walls of most fruit.  When heated with sugar in water, it gels, giving jam, jelly and preserves their thickness.  Jam is made from the crushed pulp of the fruit while jelly is made strictly from the juice of the fruit.  And in preserves, the fruit comes from chunks in a syrup.  You can tell the difference between jam and jelly by sight as jelly spreads pretty evenly and jam will tend to be a little lumpy.

Would you like to your own homemade blackberry jam?  Using the ingredients below and following the 10 steps below, it’s super easy.

What you will need:

5 cups of crushed blackberry (do not puree)

7 cups of sugar

Step 3:  Add the pectin to the blackberries in the pot, stirring constantly

Step 4:  Heat the blackberry and pectin mixture on high, while constantly stirring until the it comes to a full boil

Step 5:  Pour all 7 cups of sugar into the pot and stir

Step 6:  Stir constantly as you bring the mixture back to a boil and allow to boil for one minute and then remove from heat

Step 7:  Ladle the mixture into your jars leaving a 1/4″ space at the top

Step 8:  Wipe the rim of the jars and place the canning tops on firmly

Step 9:  Place all of the jars in a canner with very hot water and make sure the water is 1″ above the tops of the jars, leaving them in the water for 10 minutes

Blood Orange FragranceBlood Orange Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Blood Orange Fragrance Oil is inspired by an actual fruit.  The blood orange is a natural mutation of the orange.  While they originated in Sicily, southern Italy and Spain, some are grown in California.  Blood oranges do not sound appetizing, but they are juicy and sweet with a dark red anterior.  They are “bloody” due to the pigment anthocyanin, which is also found in cherries and red cabbage.  Reportedly, anthocyanin has many health benefits due to it being a powerful antioxidant that can slow or prevent the growth of cancer cells–and even kill them.  By the same token, blood oranges are noted for high amounts of Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamin A, iron, calcium, and even fiber.  They are sweeter than oranges and less acidic.  The blood orange juice should be consumed the same day it is juiced as it ferments quickly.  They are in season from December to May.  When purchasing blood oranges, you want to look for ones that heavier for their size and firm to the touch.

What Does Blood Orange Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Blood Orange Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden can be described as a tangy, juicy orange scent with just a touch of floral thyme.

How Do Our Customers Use Blood Orange Fragrance Oil?

Never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.  For homemade bath and body products, red liquid soap colorant and orange liquid soap colorant in the amount you desire.  Never use candle dye in any body products.

How do you prefer to change the aroma of your home?  Is it through potpourri and/or incense or through different cleaning products.  Potpourri and/or incense have a maximum usage of 50% while cleaning products have a maximum usage of 5%.  For a quick air freshener, add a few drops of this oil to a spray bottle of water and spray the rooms that need a pick me up.

I think my next project will be homemade candles!  For homemade candles, the maximum usage is 10%.  Blood Orange Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.

Black Currant Original Fragrance OilBlack Currant Original Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil is a blended, fruity floral scent.  First and foremost, we need to discuss the currant.  Basically, there are two distinct fruits that are called currants.  First we have the dried zante grape which is like a raisin and is primarily used for baked goods such as scones, currant buns, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding and mincemeat.  Second, we have a fresh, tiny berry that is a distant relative to the gooseberry.  The berries are high in vitamin C and antioxidants and are either black, red, or white.  The black currants are more tart.  They have a variety of uses which include preserves, syrups and liqueurs as they are often marketed as “champagne grapes“, but despite the name, they are not used for making champagne.  While the red and white are best for eating right out of your hand as they are very small and sweet, with quite an intense flavor of a grape.  The currant is very popular fruit in the UK, but is starting to gain fans here in North America.

What Does Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A Natures Garden original fragrance, smells like a rich, fruity blend of juicy wild berries and ripe currant highlighted by sparkling citrus and wrapped in a blend of floral infused vanilla.
