What Does Black Code Type Smell Like?

Calendula

calendula Calendula

Hello everybody! Are you getting ready for Halloween? Have your own little ghosts and goblins chosen their costumes yet? I can’t believe Halloween is only weeks away! Well, for all you crafters out there, are you looking for a good natural herb to include in your soaps or bath melts? Have you tried calendula? Calendula is a great herb that is more commonly known as the marigold flower. It can be used in many different industries such as cosmetics and soaping. So get ready, calendula is pretty awesome and would be a great addition to future projects!

Calendula is a very well known therapeutic herb. The word is a modern Latin diminutive of calendae which means “little calendar” or “little clock.” The flower goes along with its name because it usually blooms every month or every full moon. Another name for it is “Mary’s Gold,” referring to the Virgin Mary. Some Catholic ceremonies use the flower as a way to honor her. The flower is typically bright yellow, orange or gold. In existence, there are over 100 varieties of calendula. Egyptians considered it to have rejuvenating powers. It possesses anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties and is a big help with keeping skin smooth and healthy. Calendula is used in many industries such as bath and body products. It is great for people who suffer from varicose veins. After applying calendula to the affected areas for a few weeks, the veins have been known to shrink down. It also helps with dermatitis and acne problems. It also helps to heal minor cuts and bruising as well as some bug bites and stings and even burns. Here’s a cool use, if you use calendula as a hair product, it helps to improve your hair’s shine and makes it softer. It also will bring out blonde or brunette highlights!

This herb is a great ingredient for cold process soap. In fact, we have a recipe here at Nature’s Garden for Calendula Sunshine Cold Process Soap. Not only can it be used in soaps, calendula can also be used a decorative element for soaps. We also have a great recipe for Calendula Bath Melts. We also sell Calendula Flowers Powder and even whole Calendula Flowers. On our homepage, if you just type Calendula into our search bar it will take you right to a page titled “Search Results for Calendula.” All of our recipes and products with calendula are right there available for purchase. Did you know that in the 18th and 19th centuries calendula was used to color cheese? Neither did I! Neat though, right? However, here at Nature’s Garden we only sell calendula for external purposes only, not for food. And please do not take my blog as medical advice! Always make sure to ask your doctor before using anything as a substitute for medical treatment!

calendula products

Have I convinced you that calendula is just pure awesome! There are so many different uses for it, even in food! Did you know that marigold leaves are completely edible? Some people use them on a salad as garnish to spruce up the color! It was even once used as a dye for fabrics! Now come on, this product is purely awesome, make sure to add it to your future projects and watch out for more Enlightened by Layla!

Lavender Soap

This entry was posted in bath and body, cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

lavender scent Making Lavender Soap

For us, making cold process soap is almost a daily occurrence.  With all of the fragrance oils that are tested, new samples that are tested, and fun recipes that are made, the creative team at Natures Garden is always busy doing something.

A few days ago, we wanted to make a Lavender Soap Recipe (with cold process).  Through our brainstorming, we created a great recipe, with a cool design concept that even included sprinkling a small amount of lavender flowers to the top of the soap.

Seeing that Lavender Martini Fragrance Oil was not yet used for a recipe, we thought it would be the perfect fit.  The soaping results showed that it was a “Perfect Pour.  No ricing, no acceleration.  Very great unique scent.  No discoloration.  Scent is clean.”  So, soaping with this oil was not going to pose any issues.

To use one word to describe working with this fragrance oil, it would be flawless.  The color design for our recipe contained 4 colors including: a light purple, medium purple, dark purple, and finally white.  Not only did the fragrance allow for ample time to get these colors achieved, but we were also able to accomplish a gorgeous in the pot swirl too.

So now, since we are on the topic of how wonderful this fragrance oil was to work with, it should also be mentioned how fabulously strong and amazing this scent smells.  Once the Lavender Martini scent was in the soap batter, it seemed to fill the work area instantaneously.  The lavender martini aroma was strong!  We were all super excited as to how this soap loaf recipe was going to turn out.  Even just walking past the loaf as it set up was a foreshadow of just how aromatic the scent was.

The next day, we unmolded and braced ourselves for the soap slicing.  As we sliced the soap loaf, it seemed that with each slice the smell of lavender martini was more intense in the air.  This recipe was just an overall win in every category!

So, if you are looking for a great cold process soap scent, and your interest is peaked in giving this fragrance oil a try in cold process soap, we highly suggest you do.  Like we mentioned earlier, we soap a lot of fragrances, but this one was definitely eye opening.

Happy Lavender Soaping!
