Blue Raspberry Slushie FragranceBlue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden will have you sitting on the porch reminiscing about the good ole days when the ice-cream truck would drive right up to your house as you ran out to greet him anxiously awaiting the blue snow cone.  A little known fact, blue raspberry is a popular flavoring for candy, soft drinks, syrups, and snack foods. This delicious taste comes from the Rubus leucodermis, which is commonly known as the “whitebark raspberry” or “blue raspberry” because when ripe, this delectable fruit turns to a blue-black color hue.

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.

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 Cherry Fragrance

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.

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I was always playing with candle making then my husband bought me some candle making supplies for Christmas back in 2002 I believe it was. My playing kinda exploded from there and in 2004 I started taking my candles to craft shows. I have been in business for going on 9 years.

3. What products do you make and sell?   I make all kinds of candles and wax dipped items (bears, toilet paper, snowmen and whatever else I find) :)

4. What are your business goals?  My goal is to start selling more and more on line.  I am doing really well at shows.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden? Almost all my fragrance oils that I use for my candles come from Natures Garden. Also lots of odds and ends caution label’s, molds, color blocks.  My favorite item ( that is hard you have so many oils that are wonderful); but I guess I would have to say right now it is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.

The Importance of Social Media for Your Candle or Soap Business

This entry was posted in Natures Garden News, Natures Garden Sales, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , on by .

We asked you…

How important is social media for promoting your products?

“Extemely!!! But word of mouth from loyal customers cant be beat!!!!”
Patti Ann

 

“It will be the biggest promoting concept there could be. I am not up and running yet but I am making contacts already.”
Sheryl

 

“EXTREMELY! The best word of mouth possible because it spreads across the nation, world and not just locally.”
Ashlee

 

“Extremely. Word of mouth and posted recommendations help a lot as well since they help populate your company in different ways and broadly.”
Laura

 

“I agree that it is a part of our culture now and we truly do need it.”
Erin

 

“It’s everything for me right now other than word of mouth which is always best.”
Lynn

 

“In 2011…VEEERRRYYYY! It opens up your market in such a vast way, it’s almost unfathomable. When you promote your business via social networking you go from hometown to international.”
Dava

 

Super duper important!!!! would have never made sales in Sweden, Canada and Australia without it, I am pretty sure!”
Lather Soap Co

 

“In a time of instant gratification, connecting to clients and customers on Facebook/Twitter/Websites is vital. Nearly the first question I get with customers, if not about my products is “Do you have a website?” and then it becomes “Can I find you on Facebook?” soon after. They want to get sales/deals quick, which is why I don’t bother with an email list, they just check Facebook for sales. It also allows the customer to feel more connected to me with fast replies.”
Briana
