Apple Crisp FragranceApple Crisp Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Why not warm up to a freshly-baked apple aroma just in time for autumn? We’ve got plenty of them, and they all smell awesome. Apple Crisp- the food- is baked apples topped with streusel. If you click the link in the title, there’s a sweet free Apple Crisp recipe on our Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil page. Mmm. Remember to never ever eat fragrance oil. Also remember that once you use a baking pan, measuring utensil, or any other kitchen supplies to make soap, candles, anything with chemicals, fragrance oils or dyes, don’t use it again for baking. It’s no longer food safe. Even if you wash it, chemical residue may still remain, and can get into your food. Blech. So buy two adorable kitchen sets- one for making your delicious apple crisp, and the other for making your delicious-smelling Apple Crisp-scented candles/soaps/lotions/perfumes/room-scents.

What Does Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of a red juicy apple combined with buttercream and cinnamon with a base note of a baked oatmeal cookie.

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil?

Candles? Of course. This alluring apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for this sweet spicy scent are to use 3 drops of burgundy, plus 3 drops red, plus one drop brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Or if you prefer to use color block, we suggest shredding ample amounts of burgundy, red, and cinnamon into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayon- it will clog your wick!

Soaps? Certainly. The maximum usage percentage of this bakery scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 1%. Cold process soap testing results show that this apple aura is ideal for CP soap: no acceleration; no separation; no ricing; good scent retention. The vanillin content of this freshly-baked fruit fragrance is 3%- so it may have the tendency to discolor your bath and body products. In fact, our cold process soap testing results found that it discolored soap to a very light tan color. If you wish to combat this- try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It’s not a guarantee, but it may help. Ultimately, you are responsible for the results in your finished product. Anyway, we recommend coloring your bath and body products scented with Apple Crisp fragrance by using burgundy soap dye (on clearance!) in the amount that satisfies you. But in case we run out of that by the time you read this blog post, perhaps mix a little Red Oxide and Brown Oxide FUN soap colorant to create an apple cinnamon-y color.

Can I rub it on my body? Sure, if you make lotions or perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 0.5%- measure carefully. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Can I rub it on the WORLD?! Uh.. sure. Just be responsible about it. The maximum recommended usage percentage for incense and potpourri is 50%. and this scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Angel Love FragranceAngel Love Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Angel was an American television series that aired from 1999-2004 starring David Boreanaz, and was a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about here, but I love me some David Boreanaz (that’s my Angel Love). Actual angels, the kind we find in religious stories and myths, are said to be messengers from God, serving as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth. Angels are also charged with guiding and protecting human beings. They are generally depicted with bird-like wings, wearing white, and exuding some form of light. It is safe to assume that they smell absolutely heavenly.

What Does Angel Love Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Angel Love Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a feminine, gourmand aroma with luscious rich top notes of lemon, raspberry, honeydew melon, black currants; with middle notes of jasmine, gardenia, and nutmeg; bottom notes of white chocolate, musk, sandalwood, and patchouli. Very complex!

Top Notes:  lemon, mandarin, cassis, raspberry, melon, black currants
Mid Notes:  apple blossoms, jasmine, honeysuckle, gardenia, nutmeg
Base Notes:  patchouli, vanilla, musk, white chocolate, sandalwood

How Do Our Customers Use Angel Love Fragrance Oil?

Candles: this fruity, floral fragrance 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%. Joy of joys, this angelic aroma is gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles are none. Pure, white candles. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.

Soaps: the maximum recommended usage percentage for this sweet scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. The vanillin content is 1%, so it may slightly discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results for Angel Love fragrance found that this scent had a perfect pour, causing no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and maintaining good scent retention. It did, however, discolor to beige. If you wish to combat discoloration in your bath and body products, we recommend trying our vanilla white color stabilizer. This is not a guarantee and you are responsible for testing the color stabilizer in your finished products. Other than that, our coloring recommendations are none.

Lotions and perfumes: the maximum recommended usage percentage in these applications is 5%. Angel Love fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes.

Room scenting: the maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. This delightful aura comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Valentine's Day Bouquet RecipeWe’ve got this adorable Valentine’s Day Bouquet recipe in which Angel Love fragrance is used to make heart-shaped aroma bead ornaments on a stick. You combine these with Fresh Cut Roses-scented aroma buds, and Dare-to-be-Sexy-scented heart-shaped soaps on a stick to make a beautiful bouquet of fragrant flowers. Sure to catch the attention of your sweetie, or at the very least the attention of their nose. But I say if you’re the one who put all the work into creating this angelic arrangement- keep it for yourself! Brighten up your Valentine’s Day with this wonderful bouquet!

Antique Lace Fragrance

Antique Lace FragranceAntique Lace Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Lace itself is already quite delicate, but antique lace, made by intricate handiwork, is even more fragile. There are two main types of handmade lace: bobbin lace and needle lace. In bobbin lace, threads wound around bobbins are twisted and braided and then the pattern is set by pinning the weaving to a pillow. Needle lace, as the name implies, is made using a needle and thread. This is another scent inspired by something that takes an abundance of time and painstaking effort to make, but only seconds to smell! This fragrance captures the exquisite beauty of lace and softly ages it with a down of musk. The aroma alone will make you feel absolutely elegant.

What Does Antique Lace Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Antique Lace is the romantic scent of jasmine and fresh vanilla beans, with a base note of musk.  It’s even an NG Original Fragrance!

How Do Our Customers Use Antique Lace Fragrance Oil?

They make beautiful candles with a floral, musky aroma. Antique Lace scent 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 scent is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of our Spectrum purple liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of purple color block into your melted wax. I’m not entirely sure why we recommend purple- it’s pretty? It’s noble? I recommend no color. The lace is white, right? And jasmine flowers are white. And vanilla is.. almost white. I say give it that “antique white” tint with a very, very small amount of yellow or brown liquid candle dye or shredded yellow or brown color block. Remember never to use crayons to color candles- it’ll clog up your wick!

They also make sensuously-scented soaps. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this luscious Antique Lace scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Antique Lace fragrance oil has a vanillin content of 6%- so it will likely discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results showed that Antique Lace caused acceleration and slight ricing in CP soap, but no separation and the finished soap was beautiful. The cured soap had discolored to a dark chocolate color and maintained good scent retention. To eliminate unwanted discoloration, we recommend trying out our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It is your responsibility to test it in your finished products. Our coloring recommendations for bath and body products are: use as much purple soap dye as you want!

They also use this idyllic aroma to create lotions and perfumes. Antique Lace fragrance performed perfectly in perfume and the maximum recommended usage percentage for lotions and perfumes is 5%.

This alluring aura is also ideal for scenting rooms. It is nice and strong in aroma beads and the maximum recommended usage percentage for Antique Lace in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Almond Macaroon Fragrance

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 Fragrance

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.

IMG_0194Shadowing Natures Garden

The past couple of weeks we have had two high school seniors shadowing Natures Garden.  These two wonderful ladies, Kacie and Caitlyn, have been an absolute blast! We’re very sad to see them go but their time here was definitely well spent. Not only did they get the opportunity to see how we operate at Natures Garden, but they made some pretty cool projects along the way. Now, I’d like to share some of what these lovely girls have been working on during the past couple weeks.

Prior to starting any projects we needed to know what types of fragrance oils the girls liked most. This way we could have them making all sorts of projects with their favorite scents! Therefore, we had them go to the fragrance bar, which is located in the Natures Garden store, to smell all sorts of our delightful fragrance oils. After smelling everything that they could, Kacie and Caitlyn each picked out ten of their favorite scents. They also picked out some of their favorite recipes from our recipe box. Finally we could begin on the real fun, turning these fragrances into your very own soaps, candles, or anything else you can imagine.IMG_0153fragrance-barIMG_0154

 

 

 

 

The first project the girls tried out was the Hydrangea Candle Recipe. They used one of their shared favorite scents, Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil, and they both turned out great. Not only was their first project a complete success, but we were all pretty impressed with these candles and their colors choices.

Another beautiful creation was done using the Easter Confetti Soap Recipe. This fairly simple melt and pour recipe turned out to be a very lovely loaf. Not only did their soap loaves look fantastic but the Pink Orchid and Amber Fragrance Oil had their bars smelling amazing as well.confetti-soap1confetti-soap

 

 

 

 

One recipe that the girls were especially excited for was bath bombs. These bath time delights were made using, one of Kacie’s favorite fragrances, County Apple Fragrance Oil. Although the girls used the Orange Dreamsickle Bath Bomb Recipe, they gave it a slight twist by adding pink!bath-bombs2bath-bombbath-bombs-3

 

 

 

 

Next, the girls even learned how to make their own soap from scratch! They did an awesome in the pot swirl using the World Peace Cold Process Soap Recipe. The colors were vibrant and amazing just like the scent that was used, Fruity Rings Fragrance Oil.

world-peace-soap

world-peace-soap2

world-peace-soap3

 

 

 

 

Another method they learned in soap making was how to do hot process soap. The Purrs and Paws HP Soap Recipe was used to create these loaves and NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil was added as well. The loaves had glitter added and turned out to be quite pretty.

Also, the girls helped create a couple new recipes that will be coming soon! The first recipe is a melt and pour soap recipe that we really hope you’ll enjoy. The second recipe is new a lotion recipe that we are very excited to share with you.

It was great to have Kacie and Caitlyn working with us on all of these fun projects. It seems that these ladies got everything that they needed out of shadowing Natures Garden and have a better understanding of Nature’s Garden and what goes on here. They are both very funny and wonderful girls and we hope that they come back to visit us in the future! We would like to wish them the best of luck as they graduate from high school and prepare for college.  It truly was a pleasure to work with the two of you!

best candle scentsBest Candle Scents

Recently a great question was posted on Natures Garden’s Facebook Page.  We thought that this was such a good question that we wanted to make a blog post about it.

The question was, “What scents work best in candles?”  Looking for the best candle scents can be quite a task.  You want to ensure that the candle has both a great cold throw (the smell of the candle when it is not lit) and hot throw (the smell of the candle when it it lit and has a wet pool.)  As always, testing is key.  However, to help in the quest for best candle scents, we turned to the pros.  We asked our candle making friends on Facebook to give us their suggestions and input on what they thought were the best candle scents.  The responses we received were plentiful and very helpful.  To all of the candle makers that shared your input, thank you very much.

After reviewing, researching, and calculating the information, we complied a list of the top 20 best candle scents.  These scents are listed in no particular order.  Complimenting each candle scent suggestion is a customer review on their personal experience with the fragrance oil in a candle.

1.  7 UP Pound Cake Scent– “This FO is soooo good. We use it in soy wax, and it is beautiful and strong. It is very popular with our customers. We are so in love with this fragrance!!”

2.  Apple Orchard Scent–  “Fantastic cold/hot throw in soy. Clean, crisp, classic red apple scent without the spice. I’m sure this one will be a favorite year-round.  Used 1 oz per lb of 100% soy.”

3.  Black Cherry Bomb Scent–  “This black cherry is definitely the bomb. I made a soy candle and was very pleased with the cold and hot throw of this fragrance.”

4.  Blueberry Cobbler Scent–  “I went out on a limb and bought a sample of this one. I didn’t like it right out of the bottle. Tried it in Natures Garden Soy Wax and it was LOVELY! Amazing scent throw with this one. Will buy again.”

5. Blueberry Muffin Scent–  “This fragrance is AMAZING. Really fills the room in a soy candle. Please do not ever stop making this fragrance.”

6.  Bite Me Scent–  “Wonderful cold and hot throw in soy. Cured for only 24 hours and it had an awesome throw. Love it!”

7.  Cashmere Type Scent–  “This Cashmere is awesome! I just love the floral and sweet notes in it. It’s very sensual. I used in soy wax. It has a great cold and hot throw. Love it!”

8.  Coco Mango Scent-“ This is a great summer scent! The coconut & mango in it have a strong throw in my soy candles. This fragrance has a stronger throw than most. I have many requests for it. This fragrance is a must have!”

9.  Country Bumpkin Scent–  “Really a great fall fragrance. Strong! Threw hot and cold. I swear you could smell all the wonderful layers to this fragrance. Used in a paraffin soy blend 1.5 oz.”

10.  Eucalyptus Spearmint Scent–  “I used this scent in candles. The scent is wonderful. Spearmint is a natural mood up lifter, burning this candle makes life easier.”

11.  Fresh Linen Scent–  “This is a best seller for me. If you are looking for a crisp, clean scent, then this is for you. Excellent cold and hot throw in 100% soy.”

12.  (NG) Island Fresh (Gain) Type Scent–  “The first day I debuted this fragrance my customers absolutely loved it! Smells just like the real thing and has a strong wonderfully fresh scent. I would highly recommend to all other candle makers.”

13.  Lick Me All Over Scent–  “It’s another “sleeper” It’s okay in the bottle, but once its in 100% soy its AWESOME! I used hot pink dye and its perfect. I’ve already had customers wanting this in everything from candles to bath and body products.”

14.  Lilac Scent–  “My customers can’t get enough of this. It is a true lilac scent. Excellent scent throw both hot and cold.”
