Citronella

citronella repelsCitronella and Mosquitoes

Summer time, the period of the year when we all enjoy outdoor festivities.  Whether they be parties, cookouts, hiking, gardening, or just relaxing by the pool; we find reasons to be outside.  We love the gorgeous weather and the warming sun rays.  However, with the fun in the sun that we all seek, with it also comes the dreaded mosquitoes.

When the weather gets warm, these uninvited pesky critters seem to always show up in droves.  Invading not only our space, but feeding off us and our families.  The results of their feast, itchy, red, swollen bumps on our skin.

Mosquitoes have been in existence some 170 million years.  In the United States, there are currently over 175 different species accounted for.  It is safe to say that they are not going to be going any where soon, but there are measures that we can take to help ward off these insects.

Citronella has been known to repel mosquitoes for a long time. Burning citronella candles around the yard or applying bug repelling spray to ourselves can usually do the trick.  But have you ever wondered how this works exactly?

Just like a primal animal, mosquitoes are on the hunt for one thing: FOOD.  And, we are that food source.  Drawn to carbon dioxide (from our exhaling) uric acid (from our blood), and lactic acid (from our sweat glands), insects like mosquitoes are able to smell us up to an amazing 164 feet away.  Once those delectable scents are picked up by the mosquitoes, they are then able to locate us to feed.

It is commonly thought that the scent of citronella repels mosquitoes away.  In fact, studies have shown that when the citronella aroma is in an environment, mosquitoes will land around 40% less times than when it is not present.  But, the fact is mosquitoes will still land.  This is why citronella does not necessarily repel.

Instead, citronella masks.  What this means is that when the scent of citronella (whether by means of a candle or a body spray) is present the 3 most common drawing factors of mosquitoes (carbon dioxide, uric acid, and lactic acid) are covered.  It is almost as if the mosquitoes no longer have the ability to sense us anymore.  And, since they cannot smell us, they will move on to “sweatier pastures” so to speak.

Sure, any of your local grocery stores or super markets have aisles of outdoor summer time displays hosting many different bug repelling products that you can purchase.  You however can make your very own insect repelling/masking items right from your home.  You will know exactly what is in the product, and you will also save money by doing it yourself.

Natures Garden currently has four different citronella oils available.  There is the straight citronella scent, or the citronella java essential oil.  Both of these oils can be viewed by clicking on the individual link.  For those of you that do not like how the scent of straight citronella smells, we also have citronella options for you.  Citronella Berry fragrance oil is a sweeter version of citronella.  This fragrance contains the essential oil of citronella with the combined fruity notes of strawberry, mandarin, and raspberry.  There is also Lime Citronella fragrance oil.  This wonderful fragrance oil is the combination of essential oil of citronella and notes of lemon, fresh lime, and white flowers.

Now, if you are interested in viewing possible candle and body products that you can make with these scents, here are three of Natures Gardens finest bug repelling recipes.  By clicking on the link, you will be able to see the recipe.  Each recipe has the step by step instruction as well as all of the items listed that you will need to make them.

leo scentsLeo Scents

We wanted to start this year off with a fun and creative presentation.  So, we conducted some research to find exactly what fragrance notes and combinations would most likely correspond with the various Zodiac signs.  Based on specific personality traits of each sign, we were able to assemble particular scents that a person born under the Leo zodiac sign would like.

Beginning July 23rd, Leos quickly and playfully become the center of attention.  So, without further adieu; we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to say Happy Birthday to all Leos.  And, now we would like to welcome everyone to the lively world of Leo Scents.

Leos are considered anyone born between and including the dates of July 23rd through August 21st.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have anyone on staff at Natures Garden that is a Leo.  We do have family and friends that are Leos though.  They are a very warm and welcoming group with an enthusiasm and zest for life that is unmatched.  Always willing to be there and help out, Leos are considered a true and valuable friend.  When times get crazy, they will rush to console, cheer up, or celebrate with you.  Leos like to keep things in the present; never dwelling on what could have been. Their cheerful and optimistic attitude is one of the reasons as to why Leos are always surrounded by friends.

Leo - Confident, Encouraging, Ambitious, Loyal

Symbol- the Lion

Sign- Fire

This loving and good natured group is faithful and charitable. They are open minded and are quick to become the center of attention in a group setting. Leos are playful and fun; accepting and appreciating others for who they are. When it comes to scents, Leos prefer limelight scents with warming and floral notes.

Sealing Oils

sealing oilSealing Oils for Hair

When your hair is dry, moisturizing will help prevent the hair from having split ends, or becoming brittle and breaking off.  However, sometimes you need more than just moisturizing.  In order to help keep the hair moisturized, you can also seal it.  By sealing your hair, you are essentially trapping the moisturizing agent into each strand of hair.

Sealing oils are light oils.  There are several different sealing oils that you can use on your hair.  After these oils are applied, they do not completely absorb into the hair.  This is because these oils contain molecules that are of a larger size.  So, instead of being absorbed fully by the hair, they coat the hair.  This coating is what allows the moisturizing element to stay put.

Whether you moisturize your hair with a specific water based product, or simply apply the sealing oil (or light hair oil) after your hair is wet from the shower, the sealing oils do their job; prevent evaporation and seal in the moisture.  The perfect solution when there is high humidity outside and you want to block the outside environment from wreaking havoc on your hair.  Or, just a great way to prevent frizzy hair; sealing oils are the answer.  A sealing oil will not only lock the moisture in, but also keep outside elements out, and as an added bonus you will find that your hair style will stay in place for a longer period of time.

Now, when it comes to using these oils to seal in moisture there are a few different routes you can take.  Here are two of them:

One option is if your hair is dry.  Using a spray bottle, mix the oil or oils of your choosing.  Then, to the bottle add some leave in conditioner and water.  Shake vigorously and spritz thoroughly into the hair.

The next option for applying sealing oils would be after your hair is already wet.  To the wet hair, you would add the leave in conditioner. Then using your hands, gently work the sealing oil in.  When going this route, it is important to remember to really focus on the ends of the hair.

Regardless of which way you apply your sealing oil, once it is in you may proceed with styling as normal.  Because these sealing oils do not absorb but rather coat the moisture in, you will find that after your hair is styled, it will have a beautiful shine.  This is especially true if your are styling with a blow dryer.

Sealing Oils
These oils are considered to be very light.  This means that they will not weigh down your hair.  Also, unlike other oils, these oils will not leaving your hair looking greasy either.  Used alone or in combination with one another, these oils will seal the deal when it comes to locking in moisture for your hair.  And, they also contain various other benefits for your hair.

Grape Seed Oil-  An effective oil in preventing moisture loss, grape seed oil has a high amount of linoleic acid.  This acid is a type of omega-6 fatty acid.  A light oil that does not leave hair looking or feeling greasy, grape seed oil also contains important nutrients, nourishing and promoting healthy hair.  In fact some of the key benefits for the use of this oil include: moisturizing hair, strengthening hair, combating dandruff, and encourage hair growth.   Besides the linoleic acid, grape seed oil also contains antioxidants like the nourishing Vitamin E, proteins, and minerals.

Jojoba Oil-  Jojoba oil has always been known as a wonderful ingredient to include in any body care product.  But, this sealing oil is extremely special in that it is the one that most closely resembles our hairs natural oil, aka sebum.  Having 98% monounsaturated fats, jojoba oil strengthen the hair strands while it hydrates, and can even help repair damage.  This creates hair that is shiny, soft, and full of body.  Being rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and especially Vitamin E, jojoba oil not only nurtures it also nourishes. And, because jojoba oil is so similar to sebum, this sealing oil not only keeps the hair moisturized, but it can incredibly enhance the overall healthiness of your hair.

Sweet Almond Oil-  This sealing oil is great because it does not only nourish but also smooths the hair. Containing tons of vital nutrients to allow your hair to not only be healthy but also grow thick, long, and strong, Sweet Almond Oil has both polyunsaturated and mono fatty acids.  Besides the nutrients, sweet almond oil also has vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D, and high amounts of E.  Vitamin E is beneficial for its conditioning aspects for hair.  It is also believed that when massaged into the scalp on a regular basis, sweet almond oil will also help to reduce and control hair loss.

Sunflower Oil- The second most popular oil for hair care products, sunflower oil is plentiful and rich gamma linolenic acid (omega-6).  But, it also includes oleic and palmitic acids, lecithin, and tocopherols.  This sealing oil is also considered an emollient meaning it has lubricating elements which prevent water loss.  A very nourishing oil for hair, sunflower oil contains vitamin A, B1, B5, B6, C, D, and E.  A versatile oil with many benefits, using sunflower oil in your hair will help make your hair more manageable, control frizz, and hydrate.

These oils are all great candidates to having a healthy, full bodied head of hair with lustrous sheen and elasticity.  And let’s not forget about all of the nourishing and repairing aspects these oils also provide.  All in all, pampering your hair by showing it a little TLC with these oils will make for one happy head of hair.

Home Party

Friday, July 18th, 2014

home party Home Party

A home party is a great way to increase the sales of your homemade products.  No matter what type of homemade product you make; whether it be candles, personal care items, or home scenting mediums, booking home parties will promote your products and your business.

This method of marketing works for several reasons.  By asking friends and family members to host a home party, you will have the opportunity to reach many potential clients.  When the hostess of the party asks friends and coworkers to attend their party, you have the perfect platform to sell your products.

What is a Home Party
Differing from the typical display stands, a home party allows you the opportunity for the attendees to actually try your product and ask questions.  If your homemade products focus on personal care items, a home party lets the attendees use the products and learn about all of their skin loving benefits.  If your focus is candles or home scenting mediums, you have the chance to have the items burning, or releasing the scent while you discuss the benefits of your products as opposed to store bought brands.  Regardless of what you are trying to market, a home party environment also allows a great opportunity to create specialized items; whether that is through scent or specific skin care needs.

Since the home party is set in someone’s home, it also promotes a comfortable, at home feel.  And, usually all of the attendees are already friends or acquaintances; so everyone feels at ease.  Due to this setting, you will find that the mood of the room will be fun and enjoyable.

As an ice breaker, or during the party, simple games can be played with small sample products given out to the winners.  This is also a great opportunity to get your brand out there again.  Everybody likes freebies, so planning games with your products as the prizes is a win/win situation for everyone involved.

Now, besides the direct sales that will occur at a home party, there are also sales leads.  Since you are marketing your product to the attendees, they are able to learn about all of the benefits your items carry.  They will be able to see, feel, smell, and hear why your products are superior.  The attendees will also know and understand your passion as to why your products are worth buying.  This opens the door to the possibility of attaining more home parties by allowing the opportunity for each one of the attendees to host their very own party.

A Token of Gratitude for the Hostess
Generally, the hostess of a home party always receives a gift (one of your products) just for hosting the party.  To sweeten the deal, many people choose to allow the hostess of the party to also receive 10% of the total sales from the party in free merchandise.  Not only does this help to encourage sales, but it also is a wonderful way to thank the hostess for allowing you into their home.  These are great incentives for other attendees to also want to host a home party for themselves.

What to Bring
Besides bringing your products, samples to try, product prizes, order forms, and writing utensils, make sure you remember business cards or flyers.  You want to make sure that each one of the attendees knows how to get a hold of you if they change their minds about hosting a party, what to add to their order, or need to reorder.  To help encourage future sales from these business cards or flyers, you may want to include a 5% discount on their next order.

Home Parties are a wonderful way to let everyone know how amazing your products are.  They will increase your sales, and make for potential repeat buyers.  If you are nervous about booking your first home party, ask a close relative to be the hostess.  This way you will be surrounded by loved ones and you will feel more comfortable.  This will also allow your family to help you master your marketing technique.

Just remember to make the home parties fun and memorable for everyone who attends.  Click Here for specifics on how Deborah Ward of Natures Garden used to conduct her Home Parties (when she used to sell ready made candles).
