German Chocolate Cake Fragrance OilGerman Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight 

There isn’t much better than a thick, moist German Chocolate Cake, so we at Nature’s Garden thought It’d be great to share a recipe for a yummy German chocolate cake.  Make this cake and compare it to our German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil.  You will not be disappointed!

The cake portion requires the following ingredients to make; Cooking spray, 4 oz of sweet baking chocolate, 1/2 cup of water, 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour or 2 1/2 cups of cake flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 cups of granulated sugar, 1 cup of butter, 4 large and separated eggs,  1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 cup of buttermilk.

The coconut-pecan filling and topping will require 3 egg yolks, 1 cup of granulated sugar or packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1 cup of evaporated milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 1/3 cups of flaked coconut, and 1 cup of chopped pecans.

First, you’ll need to prepare the oven and cooking pans. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray three 8-inch or two 9-inch round cake pans with cooking spray. Then, cut waxed paper or cooking parchment paper to line the bottom of your sprayed pans.

Second, coarsely chop the chocolate, heat  the water and chocolate, and stir the combination frequently while it’s heating until the chocolate is entirely melted. Let cool.

Third, stir the flour, baking soda and salt until mixed in a medium sized bowl and set aside. Also, beat 2 cups sugar and 1 cup butter in a different medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy and set aside.

Fourth, use medium speed to beat 1 egg yolk at a time into the sugar and butter combination until thoroughly mixed. Then, use low speed to beat in the melted chocolate and vanilla. Using the same speed, beat in 1/2 of the flour mixture just until smooth, then beat in 1/2 of the buttermilk just until smooth. Repeat the last step one more time until smooth.

Fifth, use a small bowl to beat the eggs whites on high speed until beaten eggs whites form stiff peaks and fold in the egg whites using a spatula.

Sixth, pour batter into the pans and bake. The 8-inch pans should be in for 35 to 40 minutes and 9-inch pans for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Seventh, cook the egg yolks, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, the evaporated milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a saucepan for 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until thick and bubbly. Stir in the coconut and pecans. Cool for 30 minutes, while occasionally beating until spreadable.

Finally, spread 1/3 of the filling on the first cake, followed by the second cake and another 1/3 of the filling. Last, add the last cake and spread the rest of the filling on top!

What Does German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of fresh baked chocolate cake with notes of pecans, butter, vanilla, and coconut.

How Do Our Customers Use German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil?

Our customers can use German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil in a wide variety of room scenting products. Our homemade candle crafters can use up to 10% of this cake scent in candles made with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax. Joy Wax and WOW Wax are known to perform perfectly with this fragrance.

Moreover, potpourri and incense can use up to 50% of this scent for room scenting.

We suggest using four drops of orange liquid candle dye and one drop of red liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded orange and red color blocks to achieve a desired coloring.

Alternatively, the sweet scent can be used in aroma beads and maintain a nice, strong scent.

The soap batch had no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. Further, the final product had good scent retention. However, the bar does discolor to a light butter color. While vanilla white stabilizer has been able to remove discoloration in certain cases, this bar does not have vanillin included rendering this method useless. We suggest using orange liquid soap dye and red liquid soap dye in the amount you desire.  Remember to never use candle dye in any body products. Our bath and body product makers can use this fragrance as well. These products will perform well as long as the concentration of fragrance remains at or below the recommended 5%.

Caramelized Crimson Pear Fragrance Oil is a Natures Garden Original scent that is as sweet as can be! The red crimson pear is a tantalizing fruit that is mildly sweet and juicy enough to trickle out of the most careful of mouths. This alone is enough to qualify as a delectable snack, but this is only the beginning. On top of being a sweet, tender, and juicy treat these babies are caramelized! This process enhances the pears’ natural flavors and produces an aroma worthy of the most delectable desert. This fragrance will leave you with the mouth-watering scent of a scrumptious crimson pear tart fresh from the oven.

At home soapers can use a maximum 5% in cold process soaps, melt and pour soaps, bath oils and bath gels.

Our cold process soap testing results have shown that there is no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. Also, this fragrance provides a perfect pour with great scent retention!

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 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.

Alyssum FragranceAlyssum Fragrance Oil – Spotlight

FLOWERS! There are well over 100 different species of this one genus of flower. The most popular type of Alyssum flower is ‘sweet alyssum’ or Lobularia maritima (formerly known as Alyssum maritimum– so no longer technically of the genus Alyssum. I’m sorry if you’re a stickler for the technicalities of plant biology- I’m sure we have another fragrance with a more appropriate name that you might enjoy- Hyacinth, maybe? But I’m sure if you’re a plant biologist you’ve got bigger things on your hands.) Anyway, flowers. They’re cute lil flowers and they smell good. They’re also tough, both heat- and drought-resistant. They can be white, pink, rose-red, or lilac. Caterpillars eat their leaves- it’s adorable, like a children’s book.

What Does Alyssum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The wonderful aroma of freshly picked alyssum flowers. Boom. That’s it. Done. Pure and simple.

How Do Our Customers Use Alyssum Fragrance Oil?

I’m glad you asked. They make candles: Alyssum fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.  The recommended maximum usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Candle coloring recommendations: two drops of purple liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of purple color block into your wax. (I’m gonna go rogue here and suggest pink [the fragrance picture is pink for cornsake]- use a small amount of red liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of red color block into your melted wax. Pink is just light red. Err on the side of caution- you can always add more coloring, but you can’t take dye out of your wax.)

For soap makers: the maximum recommended usage percentage in bath gels, soaps, bath oils, and cleaning products is 5%! Alyssum fragrance does have a vanillin content of 6%- so keep an eye out for discoloration in these types of products. (You’re welcome to try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but we can’t make any guarantees- you have to test it for yourself in your products!) This fragrance performed well in bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing found that Alyssum fragrance oil results in no ricing and no separation. It did however, cause the CP soap to accelerate slightly and discolored the soap to a yellow/orange color. But the scent stayed nice and strong. Our soap coloring recommendations are also purple: use all the purple soap dye you want (or whatever color- *ahem* pink- I’m not here to tell you how to live your life.. or.. dye your soap.) We’ve also got all kinds of cute flower-shaped soap molds! Big ones– like in our CP soap testing videos, little ones, and these ones. We’ve also got a daisy-shaped soap punch (again, apologies to the stickler plant biologists).

The maximum recommended usage percentage for Alyssum fragrance oil in lotions and perfumes is 5% and we have found that it performs perfectly.

Room scents? Oh yeah, for sure. Maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri: 50%. Alyssum fragrance is nice and strong in aroma beads.

amish friendship bread fragranceAmish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

What is Amish Friendship Bread? It’s a recipe for sweet, fruity bread passed from friend to friend that apparently takes 10 days to make. Some say this is a throwback to a simpler time before instant gratification spoiled us rotten and makes us appreciate waiting 10 days for bread. Better than waiting for a fruitcake to cure for at least a month, I guess. Color me confused because I don’t understand why a group of people who can raise a barn in a day need 10 days to make bread. I mean no offense to the Amish and if an Amish person is reading this, please email me at kross.ngscents@gmail.com and enlighten me on friendship bread and why you’re using the Internet. Maybe we could be friends and make each other bread.

What Does Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Smell Like?

Believe it or not: bread. This scent has a freshly baked bread character and sweet notes of raisin and strawberries, with hints of nut. Just like yummy, tasty fruit-nut bread. (Banana Nut Bread represent! Not entirely relevant here, I just really like Banana Nut Bread. No bananas in Amish Friendship Bread.)

How Do Our Customers Use Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil?

They make candles! Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Recommended maximum usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. As for candle coloring, we recommend using 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax OR you can shred a small amount of a brown color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use a crayon to color your candle– it will clog your wick!

With a high Vanillin Content (6.7%) this fragrance oil may discolor your bath and body products as well.

So there you have it- you can make all kinds of fun stuff with Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil but it won’t take you ten days to do it!

Friendship!
