When it has begun to set up, but is not fully hardened yet, you can put your wicks into your fire starters. Then while your fire starters are still soft, sprinkle more of the nettle leaf powder around the edge of them in a circle to make your wreath shape. Then carefully put some of the juniper berries around the edge as well. The berries will pull some color into your fire starters. Make sure to push them down firmly into the wax so they do not fall out. Then let them sit until they are fully set up and hardened.

Candy Corn Tarts

This entry was posted in candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, tarts, wholesale craft supplies, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Candy Corn  Tarts candy corn tar

Our Candy Corn Tarts Recipe is inspired by that very popular Halloween treat that is loved by so many.  In fact, these tiny little pieces of sugary goodness are so cherished that they have their very own holiday.  It’s October 30th just for anyone that wants to celebrate with me.  With Natures Garden’s easy to follow candy corn tarts recipe you can fill your house with that same warm vanilla candy corn scent that you loved as a kid.  As an added bonus, we have packaged them in our easy to use clamshell containers.  That means no mold needed and instant packing!

 

Ingredients:

10 ½ oz. Pillar of Bliss Wax

1oz bottle of Orange Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye

1oz bottle of Yellow Spectrum Liquid Candle dye

3 tsp.  Candy Corn Fragrance Oil

Pouring Pot

3 Clamshell Containers

Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon

Measuring Cup

Stirring Spoon

3 Paper Bowls

Tooth Picks

Scale

 

Directions:

  1. Using a double boiler, weigh out and melt 10 ½ oz. of Pillar of Bliss Wax until it is completely melted.  You will need three empty clamshell containers ready.

 

  1. First you will want to prepare the orange layer.  Pour 1/3 of the melted Pillar of Bliss Wax into a paper bowl, then use a toothpick and dip it into the Orange Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and mix it into the Pillar of Bliss Wax.  You will want to keep the remaining wax on the double boiler so that it does not solidify.

 

  1. Stir in 1 tsp. Candy Corn Fragrance Oil to the orange wax and fold your bowl into a spout to dispense the orange layer into the first 1/3 of each cavity of the three clamshell containers.  Allow this layer to setup before moving to step 4.

 

  1. Next, it is time to prepare the white layer.  Pour 1/3 of the Pillar of Bliss Wax from the stove into a paper bowl and stir in 1 tsp. Candy Corn Fragrance Oil.  Then, pour the white mixture into the next 1/3 of the empty space in the clamshell cavities

 

  1. Now, to prepare the yellow layer, pour the remaining wax into the last paper bowl.  Then, using a toothpick, add a small amount of Yellow Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye.  Then, add 1 tsp of Candy Corn Fragrance Oil to the yellow wax.  Pour this wax on top of the white layer.  Once the wax has setup, close the clamshell container.

 

  1. Your Candy Corn Clamshell Tarts are now ready.  You can simply place one square in your potpourri burner or wax burner and let the candy corn aroma fill the room!

 

We hope that you have had as much fun as we did making our Candy Corn Clamshell Tarts Recipe!  Natures Garden offers a variety of free recipes for candles, room scenting soaps, and bath and body products.  We are constantly creating new recipes for our customers.  To view our entire catalog of free recipes and classes, be sure to visit our Recipe Box.  Also, for more fun and unique Holidays take a moment to visit our Calendar of Events.

Citronella

citronella repelsCitronella and Mosquitoes

Summer time, the period of the year when we all enjoy outdoor festivities.  Whether they be parties, cookouts, hiking, gardening, or just relaxing by the pool; we find reasons to be outside.  We love the gorgeous weather and the warming sun rays.  However, with the fun in the sun that we all seek, with it also comes the dreaded mosquitoes.

When the weather gets warm, these uninvited pesky critters seem to always show up in droves.  Invading not only our space, but feeding off us and our families.  The results of their feast, itchy, red, swollen bumps on our skin.

Mosquitoes have been in existence some 170 million years.  In the United States, there are currently over 175 different species accounted for.  It is safe to say that they are not going to be going any where soon, but there are measures that we can take to help ward off these insects.

Citronella has been known to repel mosquitoes for a long time. Burning citronella candles around the yard or applying bug repelling spray to ourselves can usually do the trick.  But have you ever wondered how this works exactly?

Just like a primal animal, mosquitoes are on the hunt for one thing: FOOD.  And, we are that food source.  Drawn to carbon dioxide (from our exhaling) uric acid (from our blood), and lactic acid (from our sweat glands), insects like mosquitoes are able to smell us up to an amazing 164 feet away.  Once those delectable scents are picked up by the mosquitoes, they are then able to locate us to feed.

It is commonly thought that the scent of citronella repels mosquitoes away.  In fact, studies have shown that when the citronella aroma is in an environment, mosquitoes will land around 40% less times than when it is not present.  But, the fact is mosquitoes will still land.  This is why citronella does not necessarily repel.

Instead, citronella masks.  What this means is that when the scent of citronella (whether by means of a candle or a body spray) is present the 3 most common drawing factors of mosquitoes (carbon dioxide, uric acid, and lactic acid) are covered.  It is almost as if the mosquitoes no longer have the ability to sense us anymore.  And, since they cannot smell us, they will move on to “sweatier pastures” so to speak.

Sure, any of your local grocery stores or super markets have aisles of outdoor summer time displays hosting many different bug repelling products that you can purchase.  You however can make your very own insect repelling/masking items right from your home.  You will know exactly what is in the product, and you will also save money by doing it yourself.

Natures Garden currently has four different citronella oils available.  There is the straight citronella scent, or the citronella java essential oil.  Both of these oils can be viewed by clicking on the individual link.  For those of you that do not like how the scent of straight citronella smells, we also have citronella options for you.  Citronella Berry fragrance oil is a sweeter version of citronella.  This fragrance contains the essential oil of citronella with the combined fruity notes of strawberry, mandarin, and raspberry.  There is also Lime Citronella fragrance oil.  This wonderful fragrance oil is the combination of essential oil of citronella and notes of lemon, fresh lime, and white flowers.

Now, if you are interested in viewing possible candle and body products that you can make with these scents, here are three of Natures Gardens finest bug repelling recipes.  By clicking on the link, you will be able to see the recipe.  Each recipe has the step by step instruction as well as all of the items listed that you will need to make them.

These recipes are all easy to make and take very little time to accomplish.  They are great ways to ward off mosquitoes and keep you and your family mosquito bite free this summer.

Leo Scents

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

Fragrance Oil and Scent Suggestions:
