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 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.

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?

Black Linen and Amber Fragrance OilBlack Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Black Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil is not only a Natures Garden original fragrance, but it is also A Best Seller!  Truth be told this fragrance has me intrigued.  The words “black linen” alone sort of make me blush!  As a quilter, I mainly stick to cotton and flannel fabrics.  With a little research, I discovered that linen is very labor-intensive to manufacture.  It’s fibers are very absorbent and garments made of linen are appreciated for their extraordinary coolness and freshness in hot weather.  A wide variety of products are made with linen such as aprons, napkins, towels, table clothes, runners, chair covers, bed linen, and men’s and women’s wear.  “Linens” also refers to lightweight undergarments such as chemises, shirts, and lingerie – note that the root word, linen!  Most of us associate the color black with formality, death, and maybe even evil.  But, what if we flipped the coin and looked at the color black for the other things that it has been known to represent such as strength, power, authority and the unknown; we can add excitement to our lives.  Let’s face it, there’s a hidden mystery to the color black.  Black linen combined with amber has limitless possibilities for creating the desired ambiance; embrace the unknown!

Black Cherry Fragrance OilBlack Cherry Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Black Cherry Fragrance Oil is an extremely strong aroma of sweet ripened black cherries.  Black Cherry trees are also known as Prunus serotina and the fruit that it bears is neither sweet nor sour, which makes it perfect for wines, jellies, and jams.  Native to Kentucky, black cherry trees grow the best in deep forests, but due to the animals and many types of birds that eat the fruit and spread the seeds, they are more likely to grow wild along sides of roads.  The average tree size reaches a height of 50 to 60 feet.  However, in Clark County Kentucky there is a champion black cherry tree that stands 95 feet tall.  I mention this because the black cherry tree is a valuable forestry plant because the wood is prized for carpentry as the strong, hard wood from this tree is close-grained and perfect for furniture and cabinets.  Black cherry trees grow in full sun and partial shade and prefer moist soil.  Once a black cherry tree is planted, it should not be moved as this will damage the shallow taproots.  In the spring, the tree will bear clusters of small, but stunning white, fragrant flowers which is truly a site to see.  Not only are the black cherry trees beautiful and the black cherries beyond delicious, the pit of the black cherry has been used to play games such as marbles.

Pumpkin Spice ScrubsWhat a fun time I had with the Pumpkin Sugar Scrubs Recipe as my first solo attempt at melt and pour homemade soap making.  We have a wide variety of pumpkin products such as molds, pumpkin fragrance oils, pumpkin powders, and even pumpkin recipes to satisfy your craving for this seasonal scent.  For now, I’m all about making melt and pour soaps and learning all I can about the different products here at Natures Garden, learning the techniques, and trying out the fabulous recipes.  I decided that making small, solid pumpkin sugar scrubs as my first official project was appropriate for this time of year.

I am brand-spanking-new to the wonderful world of soap making and part of the fun is figuring it out! I did some research on Pinterest and looked over a couple of our solid sugar scrubs recipes before coming up with this ridiculously fun recipe:

I included turmeric and carrot powder in the recipe both for their coloring properties and skin-loving benefits.  As this was my first attempt to make this recipe, I carefully prepped my work area and laid out all of the ingredients and tools I would need for this recipe.   Below is the step-by-step instructions that I followed:

Step 11. Place the silicone pumpkin soap mold off to the side.
2. Measure out your powders! I did this by placing one of my glass measuring containers on the scale, taring it to 0, then adding my powders one at a time (tare in between the powders if you’d prefer not to do any math).
3. Add 30g vegetable glycerin to your small glass bowl with your powders and stir until it is thoroughly mixed and you have created a paste free of lumps.  Place to the side.
4. Measure out your sugar and place to the side.
5. Measure out your oils.
6. Cut 175g of your melt and pour base and place in you microwavable bowl.
7. Microwave your soap in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, making sure it is melted. If you have a more powerful microwave, you can do it for shorter bursts of time.
8. Once that soap is completely melted, add your Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance oil and your sweet almond and pumpkin seed oil; stir thoroughly.
9. Then pour your powder paste and add your 20 drops of orange oxide into the bowl all while its wet.Step 4
10. Then add the sugar and stir, stir, stir.
11. Once you’ve completely mixed your soap, oils, and sugar pour mixture into the mold and allow the little pumpkin bars (this recipe makes about 24) to set up for 4 hours. Ta-da!

Things got a little weird for me around step 11.   As I was mixing the mixture, it began to harden.  As you will see in the picture, I attempted to pack the mold versus pouring.  I decided to go ahead and re-heat it in the microwave for another 30 seconds.  When I took it out, it was a thick liquid that I stirred with the spatula (just to remix) and then began to poor into the mold.  It poured beautifully into each mold.  As excited as I was that this project seemed to turn out just right , I immediately decided it was time to put them to the true test.  I used a couple of these and they worked really well!  The bar held its shape despite the fact that anytime you add water to sugar, it breaks it down.  I hope you have as much fun as I did using this recipe.
