At shows, everyone is drawn to this one. I was able to make a very complicated 7-color CP elemental swirl with this one (behaved so well!)”

The batch experiences no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. Further, the final bar will discolor to a tan color and the maintain a nice, strong scent. If you wish to remove the discoloration, then you could attempt adding vanilla white color stabilizer. Since the vanillin content is 2% there is a chance it is contributing to the discoloration, but it could be caused by other ingredients as well. This means that our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help with discoloration, but might not completely prevent it. Additionally, we recommend using blue liquid soap dye in an amount that you desire. Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products.

Floating Noah’s Ark Soap Recipe

We are having a staff challenge here at Natures Garden.  For this challenge, we have asked each staff member to choose one of their favorite Natures Garden’s fragrance oils and create a project pertaining to that fragrance.  Creativity is highly encouraged, using the knowledge they have learned while working at Natures Garden.  This week’s staff challenge was done by Marsha!  Marsha has only worked at Natures Garden for a few months, and her project this week was heaven sent.

If there is one thing that Marsha is extremely proud of, it is her family.  Marsha says she “has the greatest kids ever!”  But, besides being a mom, she especially loves being a Grammy.  Currently, Marsha is a Grammy to one special little guy, but is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the two little ones on the way.  Both babies are due before the end of this year.  Needless to say, she is bursting with excitement at their quickly approaching arrival dates.

One of the most interesting things about Marsha is the fact that she met her husband in prison.  She opens her interview with that line, and you look at her, eyes widened at that statement, and think what did she go to prison for?  But, don’t worry, she spent 30 years working for the prisons in administration.  She and her husband both are love birds, not jail birds.  noahs-ark-soap1

marsha1When it comes to free time, Marsha had more than she could handle after retiring from the prison scene.  Although she spends as much time with her family and grandchild as possible, she was seeking a fun company to work for.  That is how she came to be working for Natures Garden.  And, we at Natures Garden love having her as apart of our crew.

For her words of wisdom, Marsha says she has learned a lot over the years.  The one thing she would like to share is, “Let problems roll off your back.”  She advices that keeping things in, weighs your down, and you miss out of so much in life.”

When it came time for Marsha’s Spotlight Creation, Marsha wanted to make something for her grandson to use in the bath.  She also knew she wanted something to do with  Noah’s Ark.  She loved the concept of a Floating Noah’s Ark Soap and used her creativity to make it happen.  She can’t wait until he sees it.
