How Do Our Customers Use Coconut Craziness Fragrance Fragrance Oil?

Hand crafted candles can be created using this tropical scent. Candle crafters can use no more than 10% in their products. This beachy scent performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.  Although we don’t have a specific color recommendation to use with this fragrance, you can use liquid candle dye or some shavings of a color block, if you so choose, in any shade and amount that is desired for your product.

Aromatic room scents can be made using this fragrance. These room scents can be made using a maximum of 50% for potpourri and incense. Further, this scent has shown to be gel wax compatible and is nice and strong in aroma beads. Additionally, lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products can include up to 5% of this fragrance.

Homemade cold process soap and melt and pour soaps can be made using Coconut Craziness fragrance oil. Our cold process soap results revealed no ricing or no separation. Also, the bar has good scent retention. However, the fragrance causes some slight acceleration and discoloring to a tan shade. If you wish to have a lighter bar, then vanilla white stabilizer may be able to counteract any of the discoloration caused by the 2% vanillin content. Although this should help correct the problem, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products. We don’t have a certain color recommendation for this fragrance. If there is a certain color is desired, then feel free to use either soap colorant to achieve the perfect shade of your chosen color.

This is just one coconut from the tree, there are so many more fun and interesting variations to these basics of what our customers are able to do with this fragrance and others. Just open up your mind up to these beachy vibes and get creative!

How Do Our Customers Use Chocolate Covered Strawberries Fragrance Oil ?

Bath and body products will perform well for this fragrance. Bath Oils, Soaps, and Bath Gels can be created using a maximum of 5% for this valentines scent. We suggest using red soap colorant to reach a desired color, and remember to never use candle dye in any body products. Homemade soap makers can use this chocolate fragrance in either melt and pour soap or cold process soap. The Natures Garden cold process soap testing results showed no ricing or no acceleration. Although the fragrance will separate from the soap, it will but reabsorb after it sits for a while. The scent will remain strong and true in cp soap. The bar will discolor to a chocolate color, which fits the name perfectly. However, a lighter bar may be achieved through vanilla white stabilizer. Since the vanillin content is at 6%, it will be contributing to the dark color. But, there are more than forty other ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of bath and body products.

Many other products can be created using our Chocolate Covered Strawberries Fragrance Oil. Homemade lotions, do it yourself perfumes, and all natural cleaning products can all be made with this delicious strawberry scent. Perfumes will perform perfectly using this scent at a usage rate of 5%. Both lotions and homemade cleaners have a maximum recommended use of 5% as well.

Room scenters and natural candle makers can incorporate this fragrance into their creations. Incense, reed diffusers, and potpourri can be made using 50% of this chocolate scent. Also, this fragrance oil will perform well in aroma beads. Hand crafted candles that use vegetable waxes or paraffin wax can use up to 10% of our Chocolate Covered Strawberries scent. Further, this fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and soy wax. Also, it is nice and strong in soy wax. For coloring, we recommend five drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Alternatively, you can shred an ample amount of a red color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

how to color candlesHow to Color Candles

Hi everyone! Are you just starting out making your own candles? Wondering how to color candles? Here at Nature’s Garden, we actually have many wonderful products that are used specifically for the candle coloring process. We offer only the best candle coloring products out there, with each item having its own vibrant personality! We offer so many different dye products, each having their own different specifications when used in your candles. We have liquid candle dye options as well as color block dye. We even have mica dust that you can sprinkle on the outside of you pillar candles to give them the effect of sparkling!

For liquid candle dyes, we offer various Spectrum Liquid Candle Dyes ranging in color. The colors of liquid dyes we offer here at Nature’s Garden are brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, black, burgundy, purple, and teal. (However, when using these liquid dyes, please just note that they are very concentrated!) To use the liquid dyes, just put a few drops of the liquid into your melted wax.  If you are in the mood for more of a pastel color (or if you are doing a very small batch) for your candle, all you have to do to the dye is dilute it using vegetable oil with the ratio of 1:1. Be careful with the amount of dye you use as well. When you use liquid dye, it allows you to create more consistent coloring in your candles since you count how any drops are put in. But be careful not use more than 10 drops per pound of wax, or else your candles may have a chemical smell to them.

For our color block dyes, the colors we offer are red, burgundy, yellow, blue, green, purple, brown, cinnamon, teal, cranberry, and a coral/peach. To use a color block to color your candle, simply shave off the desired amount and place it into your melted wax.  One color block is actually enough to easily deeply dye 15 pounds of wax. When using color blocks, they actually do not produce colors as vibrant as the liquid dyes, so they are better when trying to attain more subtle colors. However, when using color blocks, make sure that the block is fully incorporated before pouring your candle! They can tend to produce little specks of colors on the bottoms of your candles if they are not fully melted and mixed into the wax.

Want to give your pillar some sparkle to bling it up a little bit? Use some of our Gold Pigment Mica or our Diamond Dust Mica to dust the outside of your pillars! This will give your pillars a beautiful shimmer! Have you ever thoughts of using crayons to color your candles? Well, please don’t! Using crayons for coloring can actually cause the candle to start smoking and may even clog your wicks! Crayons are not alone in this predicament. When dying your candles, be sure not to use too much color as this can cause the wick to become clogged and it may cause your candle to smoke more than it should be. It can even inhibit the throw of your chosen scent and reduce the melt pool of the candle. Candle dyes are not for cosmetic use either! Check out all of our free recipes and classes, we offer many free candle recipes, and even a Candle Coloring Class that tells all about our candle coloring products! If you click on candle supplies then candle colorants on our website, that will show you all of the candle colorants we offer. Our Candle Coloring class even tells how to mix your own colors to achieve the colors you want. Enjoy these wonderful products and watch out for more Enlightened by Layla!
