Country Clothesline Fragrance OilCountry Clothesline Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Spring is upon us, finally we can hang our clothes out on the line and enjoy the sunshine.  Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil is the aroma of fresh air, clean linens and sunshine all wrapped up in a bottle.  For me this one takes me back to my childhood.  I remember my mother hanging the clothes out on the clothesline each day.  My favorite days were when she would wash the sheets.  Me, being a kid, I would run right through the sheets and let the scent of clean cotton hit my face.  Looking back, my mom never said a word, even when I ended up pulling the sheets off the line.  My mom had so much patience and just let me be a kid.  This fragrance oils triggers that memory of a carefree childhood and transports me to simpler times.  What memories does Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil bring back for you?

What Does Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of fresh powder, light musk, and just a hint of fresh spring flowers of daffodils and tulips.

Top Notes: clean air, pineapple, orange
Mid Notes: tuberose, jasmine, cyclamen, lily, violet, daffidil, tulip
Base Notes: woods, musk, fresh powder

How Do Our Customers Use Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil?

Candle makers can use up to 10% Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil in their homemade candles or wax tarts, using paraffin wax or vegetable wax.  If you wish to color you candle or homemade tarts, use 2 drops of blue liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of a blue color block into your melted wax.  As always, crayons can not be used as a adequate substitute for actual candle dyes in your candles as they will clog your wick.  The use of gel wax is not compatible for creating candles using this clean scent.

Handcrafted soap makers can use Country Clothesline Fragrance Oil at a maximum recommendation of 5% to craft amazing handcrafted soap.  It can be by cold process soap or melt and pour soaps.  Our cold process soap testing results for this fresh scent showed no ricing, very slight acceleration, no separation, no discoloration.  I suggest soaping at room temperature.  Scent holds strong and true.  As far as other bath at body products, such as bath oils, bath bombs, and bath gels, our Country Clotheslines Fragrance Oil works great at the recommended 5% fragrance oil or lower.  When coloring, we recommend that you use blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. I suggest using our Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant.  Never use candle dye in any body products, they will stain your skin.

Many other creations can be made using Country Clothesline scent as well!  First, this many of our customers use this scent in their homemade laundry detergent.  Room scenters can use up to 50% in homemade potpourri and incense projects.  Also, creams, lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products are all safe to use with a maximum usage recommendation of 5% of this laundry fragrance oil.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business? I met my friend Cindy Stroupe when we worked together about 7 years ago. My motivation occurred after my conversation with Cindy.  Cindy told me she made handcrafted soaps and I knew the soaps in the store irritated my skin. After using her handcrafted soaps I was sold. So smooth, fresh, and the scents were awesome. Since I work I knew my coworkers were looking for natural products for skin and good smelling items for their homes.  Cindy makes an anti-bacterial soap for acne and our customers love it.  Also I promote and sell handcrafted  purses, wallets, baby blankets, curtains and more made by Venessa Shoup.  Venessa made me a purse and the rest is history. People love the handcrafted purses. They can be washed and are 98% cotton. By schooling, I have a marketing degree and love to talk to people. I knew these items could sell well. Together Cindy and Venessa make the handcrafted items and I sell. Also I market by word of mouth and established the facebook page. So totally we have been in business for seven years.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Handcrafted candles, soaps, purses, wallets, baby blankets, curtains. There are other items on my facebook page that is not handcrafted, oil burners and plug ins, but many our customers love the oils from Natures Garden for their burners. Also I use designer oils along with the bottles to make body spritzers.

4.  What are your business goals?  I currently work and this is a home base business I would love to have a small shop myself or collaborate with someone to put the items in their store.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  All our fragrance oils, designer fragrance oils and bottles for the spritzers.
