Hey all crafters out there! Do you love being creative with your crafts? We certainly do! How do you feel about beeswax as an ingredient? Does it make you think of spring with the buzz of bees all around you? Or maybe the word brings warm delicious honey to mind? Well, it may surprise you that the creations of those busy bees out there is also used for soaps, candles, and other bath and body products! I know it sounds a little bit crazy, but it’s true! And we actually sell beeswax pastilles here at Nature’s Garden! You should definitely try it out!

Beeswax is originally made from the honeycomb of bees. It can be used for medicinal purposes such as relieving pain and lowering cholesterol. It is also used for diarrhea, ulcers, swelling and can even be used for hiccups! Beeswax can also be used as stiffening agents in foods and drinks. Besides soaps and candles, other bath and body products can contain it as well, such as cosmetics and toiletries. It can be used to make soaps harder and help them last longer. It can also be used as a thickener and emulsifier.

There are many many benefits for your health and skin care by using beeswax in your products! Besides the medicinal purposes, if used in lotions, it can act as a protector for your skin. It will form a barrier on your skin in protection from irritants. It will also help your skin to retain moisture. Another bath and body product, lip balms, can also contain beeswax. It can help your lips from becoming chapped. Awesome right? I mean how much better could it get? It is such a versatile product!

Here at Nature’s Garden we actually sell beeswax pastilles. No chemicals were used to bleach our wax, it was naturally bleached from air and sun exposure. We also offer a free beeswax class that will teach you how to properly use it in your great products! And on top of that, we also have a free recipe for a beeswax candle! If you’re a candle maker, you should definitely make a note to yourself to try this awesome candle as an upcoming project. Now to get to those products on our website, there are a couple of ways. First, you can just type “beeswax” into the search bar on the top of our site. That will take your directly to a page titled “Search Results for “Beeswax”” which has all three of those products. You can also go to our Candle Supplies option at the top of the site and hit Candle Waxes in the drop box. The pastilles are available there.

fragrance bottles 1Fragrance Quick Order

Hi everyone! Are you just loving the new site? We sure are! We know that some of our customers have experienced a few problems or confusions with it, but don’t worry! It is a new site and little things are bound to happen! So just stick with us, we’ll do whatever we can to help you out with any glitches or confusions you may come across! Here at Nature’s Garden, we do our best to listen to our customer feedback and we have tried our best to make everything as easy as possible on the new site for you. One way is how we show our fragrances on the site.

Have you heard about or looked at our new option called Fragrance Quick Order? If you haven’t then you are definitely in for a treat! We know that having over 800+ fragrances can be extremely overwhelming, so we have come up with many different categories for them on the new site to help you out a little bit. Fragrance Quick Order is a way to view the names of every fragrance we have available at once on one page. On the top of our homepage you will see an option titled Fragrance Oils. If you go to Fragrance Oils, a drop box with all of our fragrance categories will appear. The bottom of the third category will show a little shopping cart that holds two fragrance bottles. Directly underneath the shopping cart it says FRAGRANCE QUICK ORDER. You can click FRAGRANCE QUICK ORDER or the picture of the shopping cart and that will take you directly to our page called Fragrance Oils- List.

fragrance oils- list page

When you reach the Fragrance Oils- List page, it will list the names of every single fragrance we have available. Awesome right? It’s such an easy way for you to see all of them! If you would like to purchase a fragrance directly from the Fragrance Oils- List page, they are only going to be 1 ounce samples!!! Do not forget that!!! If you would like more than a sample, be sure to click the name of the fragrance you want and that will take you directly to that certain fragrance. If you choose just one certain fragrance and have reached the page for it, you may order more than a sample size there.

While you are on the Fragrance Oils- List page and you would like to order the sample sizes from it, be sure to put the quantity of the fragrance you would like and remember to hit the big blue ADD TO CART button. There is one at the top of the List page and one directly at the bottom. See how great it is? And it is such a good way for all of our customers to be able to see every fragrance available to them! Plus the sample sizes are an awesome way to maybe just try out a new fragrance. Maybe you’re absolutely in love with our Bubble Luscious fragrance and have always used that, but you’re thinking about trying something new like Mermaid Kisses? Order a sample size from the list to try instead of a larger amount!

ADD TO CART button

fragrance bottlesFragrance by Category

      For all you crafters out there, how many different fragrance oils have you tried? Too many to count? Do you tend to choose a new one for every project you do? Or do you like to stick with the same few fragrances? Have you thought about expanding your horizons and trying new ones but were overwhelmed by the amount we offer? Don’t worry, we may have over 800 fragrance oils, but we have categorized them in many different ways to make it easy as possible for you to choose! Let me help you figure it all out!

If you are a returning customer, you may remember that on our old website we had an option on the homepage titled Fragrance by Category. The redesign of the new site may have you worried that we will not have an option like that anymore to categorize our many fragrance oils. Have no fear! Not only do we have Fragrance by Category, we have even more options that help to categorize them! On the top of the homepage, you will see a section easily titled Fragrance Oils. Simply place your mouse over that tab, that will show you a drop box for all of our options on our site specific to fragrances. In the middle column of the drop box, you will see one category labeled “Fragrance by Category”. If you click on that, it will take you to our Fragrance by Type page. We have sorted our fragrances into many different categories like Bakery Scents and Spring and Summer Scents. If you’re looking for a certain fragrance like Madam President for example, just click on Political Scents!

The Fragrance by Category link is not the only way we have to get to the categories we offer though! In the drop box, do you see the cute little picture underneath Fragrance by Category? The little fragrance bottles with the oranges and coffee? If you click on that picture it will take you right to the Fragrance by Type page too! Also, right below the picture in the drop box, it says FRAGRANCE BY CATEGORY. That link will take you right to Fragrance by Type as well.

At Nature’s Garden we do whatever we can to make our customers happy. We have two brand new categories on the Fragrance by Type page that have been added simply because of customer requests! Please go and check out our Top Candle Scents and our Top CP Soap Scents! Are you still not sure what fragrance to pick from the category you’ve chosen? Or maybe you’re wondering what fragrances in that category other people like the most? At the bottom of the page for that category, we have a section called “Top Sellers For This Category.” We show the four top sellers for each category in those sections.

We value each and every one of our customers and want to make everything as easy for you as possible! We love to hear about all of your successes, and please get in touch with us if you have any problems of questions! And keep watching for more Enlightened by Layla!
