leo scentsLeo Scents

We wanted to start this year off with a fun and creative presentation.  So, we conducted some research to find exactly what fragrance notes and combinations would most likely correspond with the various Zodiac signs.  Based on specific personality traits of each sign, we were able to assemble particular scents that a person born under the Leo zodiac sign would like.

Beginning July 23rd, Leos quickly and playfully become the center of attention.  So, without further adieu; we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to say Happy Birthday to all Leos.  And, now we would like to welcome everyone to the lively world of Leo Scents.

Leos are considered anyone born between and including the dates of July 23rd through August 21st.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have anyone on staff at Natures Garden that is a Leo.  We do have family and friends that are Leos though.  They are a very warm and welcoming group with an enthusiasm and zest for life that is unmatched.  Always willing to be there and help out, Leos are considered a true and valuable friend.  When times get crazy, they will rush to console, cheer up, or celebrate with you.  Leos like to keep things in the present; never dwelling on what could have been. Their cheerful and optimistic attitude is one of the reasons as to why Leos are always surrounded by friends.

Leo - Confident, Encouraging, Ambitious, Loyal

Symbol- the Lion

Sign- Fire

This loving and good natured group is faithful and charitable. They are open minded and are quick to become the center of attention in a group setting. Leos are playful and fun; accepting and appreciating others for who they are. When it comes to scents, Leos prefer limelight scents with warming and floral notes.

In order to best capture a Leo’s interest, select fragrances that contain notes of:

Fruits: Lime, Tangerine, Mandarin

Florals: Orange Blossom, Juniper, Neroli

Spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg

If there is one thing that Natures Garden knows besides fragrance oil, it is FUN!  So, earlier this year, we decided to present fragrance oil and fun together in a unique presentation as to how specific fragrance oils respond to different groups of people.  As for the official grouping, we selected to research the zodiac signs.  From there, the investigation started with finding which specific aromatic notes appealed to the personality traits of each specific sign.  And, this is where the FUN begins!

Today, it is officially that time again to change the zodiac sign!

Beginning June 22nd, the sign of Cancer tenaciously steps into their time to shine.  The entire staff at Natures Garden would like to be the first to cordially declare “Happy Birthday Cancer!”  And then affectionately welcome everyone to the comforting world of Cancer scents.

Cancers are considered people born between and including the dates of June 22nd and July 22nd.

We currently have one staff member working at Natures Garden that has the sign of Cancer.  Jenny in the order fulfillment department has a birth date of June 28th.  Fitting the Cancer mold to a tee, Jenny has incredible perseverance, is extremely dependable, and is very family oriented.  In fact, two of Jenny’s favorite past times are spending time with the family and researching genealogy.  A true nurturer, she is very quick to help others, and has the capability to make you feel very comfortable when you are around her.

Cancer- Caring, Responsive, Dependable, Devote

Symbol- the Crab

Sign- Water

Being protective, loving, and nurturing, this group of people are pillars in the family and friend units. Intuitive and imaginative, cancers also remain cautious and are prone to being emotional and private people.  Cancers feel most at home when they are adorning scents that make them feel comfortable.

Gemini Scents

This entry was posted in candle fragrance oils, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, soap fragrances, zodiac scents and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

gemini scentsGemini Scents

Once again, it is that time to officially change the zodiac sign!  This year we wanted to do something a bit different.  So, for a little fun, we thought of researching exactly what fragrances appeal to people under a particular zodiac sign.  And, what we found in our search was what aromatic notes most likely correspond with certain astrological signs.  These fragrance oil suggestions contain aromatic notes that a person born under a specific Zodiac sign will like based on their common personality traits.

Beginning May 21st, Geminis energetically become the driving force in the spotlight. So, we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to announce, Happy Birthday Gemini!  And then cordially invite everyone to the fascinating world of Gemini scents.

Geminis are considered people born between the dates of May 21st and June 21st.

Sadly, we currently do not have anyone working at Natures Garden that is a Gemini.  However, we have friends and family that are Geminis.  They are a fun loving crowd that love to talk.  Being that they are highly intellectual, geminis are constantly questioning and are forever thirsting for knowledge.  And, dueled with their intellect, they are also vastly creative.  Since geminis balance a life of inquisitiveness and wisdom they are often the life of a social gathering and really know how to work a room.  But, on the flip side; geminis can also be great listeners who can tap into their library of information and experience and offer sound advice.

Gemini-  Clever, Imaginative, Adaptable, Spirited
Symbol- the Twins
Sign-  Air

This intellectual group is not only polite and energetic, but also adaptable to any situation. Dueling both a chatty side and a sympathetic ear, people with this sign need diversity. Gemini’s have a true admiration for fragrance oils that present a contrast but still manage to come together to make a beautiful aroma.

People that have the sign of Gemini really take to these fragrance notes:

Fruits: Grapefruit, Lemon, Tangerine

Herbs: Lavender, Spearmint, Peppermint

Nuts: Hazelnut, Walnut, Almond

Fragrance Oil and Scent Suggestions:

Tropical Drink ScentPina Colada Fragrance Oil- Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The name Pina Colada actually means “strained pineapple.”  Ricardo Gracia holds the first claim to inventing this fruity cocktail.  In the process of perfecting his drink first called Coco Loco which consisted of coconut milk, rum, and coconut cream, he ran into an issue.  Due to the fact that his drink was served inside a half a coconut, when the coconut supply was hit with a union strike, Ricardo decided to improvise.  He used a hollowed out pineapple instead.  The mixture of all these flavors topped off with the sweet acidic pineapple was a huge hit, and hence the Pina Colada was born.  Natures Garden has captured the essence of the famous Pina Colada in this tropical drink scent.  A grand mixture of the classic tropical aromas including coconuts and pineapples, it absolutely smells phenomenal in finished products.  And, this scent will surely leave your customers salivating.
