Caramel FragranceCaramel Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Caramel is often regarded as a staple for nearly every single delectable dessert. Whether it is drizzled over a cheesecake or gushing out of an oven fresh brownie, caramel never seems to disappoint a crowd. Heck, it has even been known to transform healthy foods into tasty treats that are worthy of the biggest sweet tooth. Not only can you sweeten the deal on a big green apple, but caramel has a scent just as delicious as its taste. The Caramel Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is so true to this decadent aroma, that you might just think you opened a fresh bottle of homemade caramel syrup.

What Does Caramel Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Natures Garden’s Caramel Fragrance Oil is a buttery, toffee caramel aroma.  Great to use by itself or to mix for creative fragrance blends.

How Do Our Customers Use Caramel Fragrance Oil?

Whether you’re a seasoned soap maker or one of the new soapers on the block, our Caramel Fragrance Oil is a great fragrance to use for your soap making recipe. This candy scent can be added to bath oils, soaps, and bath gels at a maximum recommendation of 5%. The Natures Garden cold process soap testing results have shown that our caramel fragrance oil works well in homemade soaps. Not only did this fragrance produce a perfect pour, but there wasn’t any ricing, acceleration, or separation. A bar using this scent has the potential to discolor to a beige and will maintain a light scent retention. However, a lighter bar is possible for those who desire one. Since the vanillin content is 2.6%, vanilla white stabilizer can be used to achieve a lighter bar. Further, we recommend using brown soap colorant and orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for this fragrance. Never use candle dye in any body products.

Homemade scenters may find our Caramel Fragrance Oil to be a perfect addition to any candle, perfume, or cleaner. First, candle makers may add this fragrance to either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax at a maximum usage of 10%.  This sugary scent performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and soy wax. Also, it is nice and strong in both aroma beads and soy wax. We suggest using 2 drops brown liquid candle dye and 1 drop orange liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or to shred a small amount of a brown color block and an orange color block into your melted wax. Remember, crayons aren’t sufficient substitutes for colorants and will clog your wick. Second, those making lotions, perfumes or cleaning products can use up to 5% of this fragrance oil.  Also, this fragrance will perform perfectly in perfumes. Lastly, do-it-yourself room scenters can use this scent at a 50% usage rate for potpourri, reed diffusers, or incense.

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringPittsburgh Soapmakers Gathering

The 2015 Pittsburgh Soapmakers Gathering was the soaping conference held on Saturday May 2 at the Shaler Library in Pennsylvania.  There were about 25 participants at this event.  Nature’s Garden was one of the lucky vendors that donated to this soaper’s gathering.  It was an opportunity for the participants to get new soaping ideas, learn new techniques, and hopefully make some new soapmaking friends. The one day event included soap making and candle making presentations and workshops.  Each of the guests were given an opportunity to learn a variety of soap making styles.  During the conference some of the events included demos and sessions involving specialty oils like cocoa butter and almond oil, how to creatively use embeds, and how make your products SPARKLE!!!  The participants were also shown techniques for adding various soap colorants including micas and oxides, all natural colorants, and liquid colorants.  Of course, they didn’t leave out candle making!  There was even an informative demo on how to make a coconut and beeswax candle.

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringNature’s Garden was honored to donate door prizes for this fabulous soaping conference.  These door prizes were raffled off at the gathering.  Our door prizes included soaping fragrance oils, a Natures Garden t-shirts, sodium hydroxide, and Nature’s Garden Shopping Bags.  These goody bags were given away at the one day event.  Who wouldn’t love that!?!

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringEach lucky participant was also able to take home a 4 ounce bottle of one of Natures Garden’s 828 fragrance oils.  Some of the scents included Champagne Pear, Coconut Lime Verbana, NG Aqua di Gio Type, and Capri Olivo.  Each of these fragrances have been tested thoroughly and perform amazingly well in soap.   We are hoping that they enjoy soaping with them and are able to find some new soaping favorites!

Spearmint Soap Problems

spearmint soap problemsSpearmint Soap Problems

Hello everyone! As you know, I’ve recently been making many different soap recipes and learning more and more about the soap making process. We posted a blog about the wonderful Spearmint Soap I made using our Spearmint Fragrance Oil, and now I’m back to tell you all about some of the problems I had making that gorgeous gray and green soap. That beautiful soap was actually my second time making this recipe, and as I’m sure you’ve figured out, the first time didn’t go so well! In the first recipe, instead of doing green and gray swirls, I instead tried out just an all-over green base.

One of my first problems was with my white topping for the soap. I had researched so many different pictures and had seen so many lovely whipped soap toppings that I thought this was one soap I could easily whip up and create myself! However, once I had prepared and poured my green soap base, I was waiting for my white topping to set up to a frosting consistency so that I would be able to fluff it all over the top of the soap. However, while I was waiting, I panicked and poured the white on top way too soon. This caused my top to not be able to peak as well as not being fluff-like. Because I poured too soon and my topping was still not fully set up, this also caused part of the white to sink into the green soap since the green soap was not fully set up either. You can definitely see the sinking after the soap was cut, there were no straight lines and you can see the spots where the topping sank right in! So for all of you other soap makers out there, always make sure to give your topping enough time to set up, or else you will end up with your topping sinking into your base! You also won’t be able to peak the top like you want!

Another big problem I had was using way too much green colorant for the base of my soap. Instead of coming out with a beautiful mint green color like the remake, the green of my first Spearmint Soap was a dark hunter-like green. While there is nothing wrong with a hunter green, this color did not go with the Spearmint theme. Once I completed the remake, this soap turned out absolutely beautiful! Have any of you experienced soap makers out there had any mistakes like these? I would love to hear about them! Please contact me here at Nature’s Garden, or you can always contact us here with any thoughts, concerns, or questions that you may have! Make sure to check out all of our wonderful free recipes and classes! You’re sure to adore each and every one of our recipes! Make sure to check out all of our Soap Classes as well to help you along!

Our First Stick Blender

our first stick blender

 

This blog is dedicated in remembrance of our first official soap making utensil, Mr. Smooth Operator.

3 years ago, we started to dabble into the wonderful world of soap making. As we learned all about this art, researching the steps, ingredients, and supplies; we welcomed a new soaping utensil into our lives. It was lovingly named: Mr. Smooth Operator. He was our first stick blender.

Today, with tears in our eyes; we lay Mr. Smooth Operator to rest.

Mr. Smooth Operator was an extremely hard worker, who took on each soaping endeavor with vigor and vitality. He was there for us through thick and thin batch, and never blinked an eye when it came to having to put forth extra effort; asking for nothing in return.

Looking back, there were times when we took Mr. Smooth Operator for granted; especially early on when we were new to the soaping game. But, he never held that against us. He was a happy, go getting fellow, who lived a life of sacrifice. He would take on the task of hard labor and getting dirty; all in order for us to be clean with our soap.

He was the best stick blender.

Strongly rooted in a family that strives on performance, the Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender series should be proud. Not only did Mr. Smooth Operator fulfill his calling as a stick blender, but he willingly exceeded expectations every day. And boy, were there some days that he put in the overtime.

Through all of these amazing qualities, Mr. Smooth Operator quickly became a part of our soaping family. He has set the standard of quality work (and easy clean up), leaving behind an awful big pair of shoes for the next stick blender to fill.

Mr. Smooth Operator will truly be missed by everyone on the creative team at Natures Garden.

We hope that in his passing, he is out there somewhere blending huge batters of joy and happiness. Achieving immersions, young and fresh as the day he was first opened and used.
