5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden? About 90% of my fragrance oils are from Natures Garden, I absolutely love them! The Vanilla Stabilizer is the best I have ever used. The emulsifying wax, stearic acid and btms are also great products. I also really like the Fractionated Coconut Oil. I could go on & on!
