fragrance bottlesFragrance by Category

      For all you crafters out there, how many different fragrance oils have you tried? Too many to count? Do you tend to choose a new one for every project you do? Or do you like to stick with the same few fragrances? Have you thought about expanding your horizons and trying new ones but were overwhelmed by the amount we offer? Don’t worry, we may have over 800 fragrance oils, but we have categorized them in many different ways to make it easy as possible for you to choose! Let me help you figure it all out!

If you are a returning customer, you may remember that on our old website we had an option on the homepage titled Fragrance by Category. The redesign of the new site may have you worried that we will not have an option like that anymore to categorize our many fragrance oils. Have no fear! Not only do we have Fragrance by Category, we have even more options that help to categorize them! On the top of the homepage, you will see a section easily titled Fragrance Oils. Simply place your mouse over that tab, that will show you a drop box for all of our options on our site specific to fragrances. In the middle column of the drop box, you will see one category labeled “Fragrance by Category”. If you click on that, it will take you to our Fragrance by Type page. We have sorted our fragrances into many different categories like Bakery Scents and Spring and Summer Scents. If you’re looking for a certain fragrance like Madam President for example, just click on Political Scents!

fragrances by type page on NG site

The Fragrance by Category link is not the only way we have to get to the categories we offer though! In the drop box, do you see the cute little picture underneath Fragrance by Category? The little fragrance bottles with the oranges and coffee? If you click on that picture it will take you right to the Fragrance by Type page too! Also, right below the picture in the drop box, it says FRAGRANCE BY CATEGORY. That link will take you right to Fragrance by Type as well.

At Nature’s Garden we do whatever we can to make our customers happy. We have two brand new categories on the Fragrance by Type page that have been added simply because of customer requests! Please go and check out our Top Candle Scents and our Top CP Soap Scents! Are you still not sure what fragrance to pick from the category you’ve chosen? Or maybe you’re wondering what fragrances in that category other people like the most? At the bottom of the page for that category, we have a section called “Top Sellers For This Category.” We show the four top sellers for each category in those sections.

We value each and every one of our customers and want to make everything as easy for you as possible! We love to hear about all of your successes, and please get in touch with us if you have any problems of questions! And keep watching for more Enlightened by Layla!

Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe

This entry was posted in coffee sugar scrub recipe, fragrance oil, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, sugar scrub recipe and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

coffee scrub recipe

Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe

A type of drink called Toffee Crunch Latte was my inspiration for coming up with a recipe called Toffee Crunch Latte Sugar Scrub. Melissa is an employee at Nature’s Garden whom has a deep craving for coffee every day during her shift; and it dawned on me to ask her what her favorite type was. I am always making her coffee every day and it surprised me that this was her favorite type of coffee, since usually she prefers hers black. The recipe overall is a fun idea to try and construct as it brings together the wonderful scents of coffee and caramel into different color layers of sugar scrub with a nice touch of whipped cream and brown sugar on top.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients Needed:

454 grams Whipped Soap Base

152 grams Powdered Sugar

298 grams Brown Sugar

46 grams Café Caramel Fragrance Oil

46 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Brown Oxide Fun Soap Colorant

 

Directions:

  1. Start off weighing out 454 grams of soap base, 46 grams of Café Caramel Fragrance Oil, and 46 grams of vanilla white stabilizer; then you want to mix them together in a deep mixing bowl until you get a ball of dough.
  1. The ball of dough is then divided evenly into three separate bowls.
  1. In the first bowl, add 152 grams of powdered sugar; carefully folding the sugar in to incorporate it in evenly throughout the dough.
  1. In the second bowl, add 149 grams of brown sugar into the ball of dough and mix it into a light caramel color.
  1. In the third bowl, add 149 grams of brown sugar with enough brown oxide to make a dark coffee color.
  2.  When you get your colors, put the layers into the four ounce clear containers. Be very careful with the process as some of the colors will have the tendency to stick to the side of the container and dominate over the other layers. Your layers should be flattened out very smoothly to keep the colors from mixing.
  1.  Following the process of getting the brown accented layers on, the next step is to put the whipped cream on top. You  put the white portion of the mixed batter into a zip lock bag with a cake decorating tip and carefully try to whip up your own unique swirl on top of your creation to make it look like whipped cream sitting on top of a cup of latte.
  1.  Kick up your creation to the next level  by putting a sprinkle of brown sugar on top.

The whole experience was something new to me as I attempted to go head first into this project, since I have never had any experience before making a sugar scrub. I enjoyed the final look of the project when I was finished; and it had me craving coffee afterwards as the aroma just reminds you of walking into a local coffee shop early in the morning. If you are a coffee lover, then this recipe is sure to please.  Have fun with this recipe!
