Witching Hour FragranceWitching Hour Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The “witching hour” commonly refers to the time of night when witches and other supernatural beings are believed to be at their most powerful. In medieval times, it was believed that any woman out after midnight without a ‘legitimate reason’ to be out could have been suspected of witchcraft. In more modern times, the witching hour refers to the last hour of stock trading between 3pm and 4pm which sees a high amount of activity. Not as exciting as magic and ghosts and ghouls. Witching Hour Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is perfect for your fall bath and body recipes

Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance performed perfectly in CP soap. It showed no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and good scent retention. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color your bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! Now is the time where I’d normally recommend using natural soap colorant but, unfortunately, natural purple soap colorants are hard to find. You could try using activated charcoal powder to dye your soap black (or gray depending on how much you use). Activated charcoal is also a detoxifying agent and a natural odor absorber!

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in cleaning products is 1%.

Bay Rum FragranceBay Rum Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Ahoy, mateys! Rum is commonly thought of as the drink of choice of pirates. And why wouldn’t it be? They made careers off of rum-running: transporting alcohol overseas to colonies where drinking was prohibited. Pirates often consumed rum as bumbo- a drink made from rum, water, sugar, and nutmeg or cinnamon.

Bay Rum, more specifically, is a product with high-alcohol content made in the Caribbean using rum and the leaves or berries of the appropriately named bay rum tree. It’s often used in aftershave, cologne, and lotions (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, you can use this fragrance oil to make your own). Not as pirate-y, but I already wrote most of this post with pirates in mind, so I’m gonna leave it as is. And surely, pirates had to shave their faces, too? (Unless their pirate name had the word “beard” in it.) Why not with bay rum-scented products?

What Does Bay Rum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

It be a spicy, cultural blend of crushed cloves, cinnamon sticks, patchouli, and crisp pine needles, with a sweet orange freshness.

Top Notes:  orange, apple
Mid Notes:  cinnamon, clove, cool mint
Base Notes:  pine, cedarwood, vanilla, musk, patchouli

Balsam and Cedar FragranceBalsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We already met our buddy the balsam fir- a.k.a. the Christmas Tree. So what’s the deal with cedar? Cedar wood is used in all sorts of amazing applications from building ships, houses, log cabins, fences, furniture, canoes, and even guitars, to bug repellent. Smells great, too! California incense-cedar is the primary type of wood used for making pencils. This kind of explains why I loved holding pencils under my nose as a kid- cedar wood smells fantastic. And pencil mustaches are cool, too. :{o (That’s a mustachioed smiley. Try holding a pencil between your upper lip and your nose to see what I’m talking about: pencil mustache.)

What Does Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam.  This fragrance is composed of top notes of  orange, raspberry, and plum;  middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth;  base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.

Candles! This fresh forest fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is gel wax compatible! That means you could make some gel candles with embeds (check out our Christmas tree embed molds). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this woodsy aura in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our candle coloring recommendations are 5 drops green plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of green and brown color block into your melted wax.

Room scents! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sophisticated scent in potpourri and incense is 50%. It comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this complex accord in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance caused slight acceleration in CP soap, but no ricing and no separation. It retained a very strong scent and cured bars discolored to a lavender/tan color. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0%, but there are over 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that can lead to the discoloration of products. Products with high vanillin contents tend to discolor to varying shades of brown, but this one has a tiny bit of purple (I personally think it’s a pretty cute color). Our coloring recommendations are to use green and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. If you’d like to go for a more earthy tone and add some extra nutrients- check out our natural soap colorants. Just be sure to read the descriptions because different soap processes cause different reactions with your herbs and can affect the intended color of your soap. Also- feel free to check out our tree-shaped soap molds!

Body products without the bath! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this interesting aroma in lotions and body-sprays is 5%. It performed perfectly in perfumes.
