Almond Macaroon Fragrance Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Guess what! Even more almonds. I think this is it, though, for now. Who knows, I could say that and then almonds rain down on me from the sky. If I’ve angered the almond gods. Anywho, here’s this: Almond Macaroon Fragrance. So, macaroons are typically made with ground almonds, sugar, and egg white, and then any other spices you may like. Isn’t that a heckuva lot like Almond Marzipan? You bet your sweet bippy it is, But guess what? This stuff is shaped into “small, circular cakes”* and baked (*I think you’d just call these cookies- but I don’t know a ton about baking, so I’ll defer to the wisdom of Wikipedia.)

What Does Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This luscious almond cookie (a-ha! It is a cookie!) fragrance by Natures Garden is sure to create a sensory delight. Fresh orange sweetens the toasted almond character, as bakery tones of warm cookie and toasted nut add a yummy sensation. Vanilla bean sweetens the cookie tones, completing the gourmand treat.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil?

All kinds of crazy ways! Firstly, they make some pretty sweet decorative candles. Almond Macaroon fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Unfortunately, this fragrance is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles made using this fragrance oil are: no color. I say try to get a vanilla tint using a very small amount of yellow and/or brown liquid candle dye or a very small amount of shredded color blocks.

Secondly, they make some pretty sweetly scented soaps. We happen to have a very cool Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe ourselves.  The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Macaroon fragrance oil in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. This fragrance performed well in bath and body products. The vanillin content of Almond Macaroon fragrance oil is 15.5%, which means it may discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that Almond Macaroon fragrance oil did great in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation; a perfect pour. It did, however, discolor to a dark chocolate color. It also has very strong scent retention. We have no color recommendations for soap, either, but if you’re looking to make your soap a color other than dark chocolate or prevent your bath and body products from discoloring, I recommended trying out our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer (though not a guarantee, it could help bring your soap to a white color, and then you can add whichever soap dye you like!)

Thirdly, they make lotions and perfumes. The recommended maximum usage percentage for Almond Macaroon scent in lotions and perfumes is also 5%. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Finally, they make room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Macaroon fragrance oil in potpourri and incense is 50%. This fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Almond Marzipan fragranceAlmond Marzipan Fragrance Oil Spotlight

I seem to be unable to escape almonds. Though that may be because we’re in the “A’s.” They’re even used to make amaretto. Ah! So what the heck is marzipan? It’s a finely ground almond powder mixed with sugar or honey and sometimes egg whites. This can be its own confectionery treat, or made into adorable little shapes to put on top of cakes. Some times it’s shaped and covered in chocolate, other times it’s used as the icing on cakes. It’s apparently quite popular in the UK to use marzipan to ice large fruitcakes.

What Does Almond Marzipan Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Indulge yourself with this warm, slightly gourmand, almond marzipan aroma.  A truly luscious combination of almond, rose, benzoin, cassis, and black currant.  It starts with top notes of mimosa and hawthorn, followed by middle notes of creamy rose, black currant, and benzoin, all sitting on a base of almond, vanilla, and musk.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Marzipan Fragrance Oil?

They make delectable decorative candles. Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. This fragrance is gel wax compatible. We have no color recommendations for candles. Mine are- maybe a very small amount of brown? Maybe a small amount of yellow? A very slight mix of the two? We’ve got brown liquid candle dye and yellow liquid candle dye and brown and yellow color blocks.

They also make sweet soaps from scratch. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Marzipan fragrance oil in soaps, bath gels, bath oils, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results show that this fragrance oil performed well in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and no discoloration; a perfect pour. The scent comes across nice and strong in CP soap. Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performed well in bath and body products. This fragrance oil has a vanillin content of 0.1%, so you might see some very, very slight discoloration in your bath and body products. Again- no coloring recommendations here!

Marzipan is shaped into all kinds of different things and we’ve got all kinds of different soap molds. The smaller molds can be used to make sample-sized soaps or embeds for your candles. I personally think the little duckies mold would work swimmingly. Who doesn’t like cute little duckies? If you’re going for almond authenticity, I’m sorry to say we don’t currently have any almond-shaped molds, but we do have football molds, and after you used the soap enough, it would probably just look almond-shaped. Or you could shave the laces off and just have it be almond-shaped without the wait.

How about perfumes and lotions? Of course! The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 5%. We’ve also found that Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performs perfectly in perfume.

And room scents? You bet! The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Marzipan fragrance oil in incense and potpourri is 50%. This fragrance is also nice and strong in aroma beads.

Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance

amish friendship bread fragranceAmish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

What is Amish Friendship Bread? It’s a recipe for sweet, fruity bread passed from friend to friend that apparently takes 10 days to make. Some say this is a throwback to a simpler time before instant gratification spoiled us rotten and makes us appreciate waiting 10 days for bread. Better than waiting for a fruitcake to cure for at least a month, I guess. Color me confused because I don’t understand why a group of people who can raise a barn in a day need 10 days to make bread. I mean no offense to the Amish and if an Amish person is reading this, please email me at kross.ngscents@gmail.com and enlighten me on friendship bread and why you’re using the Internet. Maybe we could be friends and make each other bread.

What Does Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Smell Like?

Believe it or not: bread. This scent has a freshly baked bread character and sweet notes of raisin and strawberries, with hints of nut. Just like yummy, tasty fruit-nut bread. (Banana Nut Bread represent! Not entirely relevant here, I just really like Banana Nut Bread. No bananas in Amish Friendship Bread.)

How Do Our Customers Use Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil?

They make candles! Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Recommended maximum usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. As for candle coloring, we recommend using 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax OR you can shred a small amount of a brown color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use a crayon to color your candle– it will clog your wick!

They also make soaps! Our maximum recommended usage percentage for Amish Friendship Bread is 5% in soaps. Our cold process soap testing results show that it performs well in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation, with good scent retention. It does, however, discolor to a chocolate color. Our coloring recommendations are.. none. We also have a square loaf mold if you want to make your soap look bread-shaped.

They also make bath and body products and perfumes! Recommended maximum usage for these products is 5%. Amish Friendship Bread performs perfectly in perfumes (try saying that ten times fast) and performs well in bath and body products. With a high Vanillin Content (6.7%) this fragrance oil may discolor your bath and body products as well. You can try some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer if you feel so inclined, but remember that it’s up to you to test how the color stabilizer works with this fragrance oil in your product.

And room scents.  Recommended maximum usage for this fragrance in potpourri and incense is 50%. Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil is also nice and strong in aroma beads.

So there you have it- you can make all kinds of fun stuff with Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil but it won’t take you ten days to do it! (Though you may need to wait a few weeks for your soap to cure, but you’re not going to eat it. Don’t eat it. Doesn’t matter how good it smells.) Goes great in gifts you’re making for friends! Friendship!

acorn harvest fragranceAcorn Harvest Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Feeling squirrely? Then you’ll go nuts for this fragrance oil! Imagine walking through the oak trees in the crisp fall air. You take a deep breath and suddenly something hits you on the head. Is the sky falling?! Don’t be ridiculous, loosey goosey, it’s just an acorn. But ouch, yeah, those lil things sure pack a wallop when they fall from a tall oak tree. You look up to see where it came from and you hear a squirrel chattering. Weird. Squirrels make the weirdest noises. Almost like chirping but also yelling? You decide to high tail it out of there before the squirrel gets anymore ideas. The squirrel can rest easy knowing that his acorns buried in the ground, stored for later, are safe, for now.

What Does Acorn Harvest Fragrance Smell Like?

Acorn Harvest is a very unique, Nature’s Garden Original Fragrance Oil. It is comprised of a warm, earthy, nutty aroma paired with rich buttery vanilla notes. It’s nuts. You’ll feel like you’re standing directly under an oak tree in autumn. What better place is there to be?

How Do Our Customers Use Acorn Harvest Fragrance Oil?

For candle makers, this is just what you’re looking for – Acorn Harvest performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. For coloring candles, we suggest using 3 drops of orange and 2 drops of yellow liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax. Another coloring suggestion is to shred a small amount of an orange and a yellow color block into your melted wax. Just remember not to try to color your candle with a crayon or you’ll clog the wick! Burn an Acorn Harvest scented candle near an open window and watch the squirrels come a-runnin’.

For incense and potpourri, the maximum usage rate is 50% and Acorn Harvest is nice and strong in aroma beads. We’ve got a fun Autumn Leaves Potpourri recipe you could use this fragrance in, just substitute Autumn Woods fragrance for Acorn Harvest. They have the same usage percentages in potpourri so you should be okay if you stick to the original recipe.

For soap, bath oils, bath gels, lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products, the recommended maximum usage is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results show that Acorn Harvest fragrance does not cause acceleration of your soap batter, there is no separation, no ricing, and the soap retains its gorgeous scent. The fragrance oil discolors CP soap to a dark chocolate brown – the color of acorns..! (Almost.) If you don’t want brown soap, be sure to get some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help with discoloration, or add colorful dyes. We recommend using orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you (this particular colorant works well in melt and pour and cold process soaps).

We’ve also got some cute little Oak Leaves & Acorns embed molds that you could use to make soap samples or potpourri tarts. Just don’t let the squirrels get their little claws on them!
