25. Toxic TranceWhen we asked our perfumist to create some new Halloween/Gothic scents for us, he created a sexy scent that he referred to as “Intoxicating Edward”.  We love the Twilight series, and we were simply amazed at how well the perfumist captured the charming charisma of Edward in this fragrance;  his alluring eyes, his flawless, metrosexual appearance, and even the way he glistened like gold when we was in the sun.  However, we chose to give this fragrance a name that lasted beyond the Twilight phenomena; thus we renamed this fragrance “Toxic Trance”.

28. WerewolfThis fragrance oil by Natures Garden is sexy and animalistic.  Fresh citrus highlights sparkle around the floral heart of lavender and ylang in this sensuous blend. An earthy signature of patchouli and spiced wood leads to a base of warm animal tones. Leather and musk balance with balsamic undertones as hints of powdery vanilla complete the blend.

Cocoa Butter

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, Enlightened by Layla, melt and pour soap, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

cocoa butter Cocoa Butter

For all you crafters out there, do you like to use cocoa butter in your products? Well guess what? We offer cocoa butter here at Nature’s Garden! Awesome right? We offer natural cocoa butter, (not deodorized so that it still smells faintly of chocolate) and we also have deodorized cocoa butter. But hold on, it gets even better! We also offer Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap for all of you soap makers out there!

Cocoa butter is considered a luxury butter that is actually a saturated, very hard fat. It can be used be in very many products. The obvious, chocolate, is just pure delicious. I couldn’t help but mention it, what girl doesn’t love chocolate! Now that I got my chocolate thoughts out, it can also be used in very many of our products here at Nature’s Garden. Cocoa butter can be used in bath and body products such as lip balms, lotions, soaps, scrubs, massage bars, and lip gloss.

There are many benefits to your skin when using cocoa butter in your bath and body products. Cocoa butter is very high in antioxidants which helps fight signs of aging and many skin stressers. Come on ladies, who doesn’t want to look younger? It helps fight signs of aging, how awesome is that? Many people also use cocoa butter to help reduce their stretch marks, however there are no guarantees that it actually helps. Cocoa butter also helps to keep your skin hydrated and some people also use to help with skin irritations like dermatitis and eczema. See why so many bath and body products contain cocoa butter? It’s just amazing!

Our cocoa butter at Nature’s Garden is consisted of many essential fatty acids: palmitic (28%), stearic (33%), linoleic (3%) and oleic (35%). For all the soap makers, when using cocoa butter in your products, make sure to use the right amount. If too much is used, it can result in a very hard and dry soap. Use it in conjunction with unsaturated oils like castor oil or olive oil or with sticky ingredients like lanolin or shea butter. The easiest way to get to our cocoa butter on our website, is to type “cocoa butter” into our search bar at the top of our site. It will take you right to a page titled “Search Results for “Cocoa Butter.”” That page shows all of the cocoa butter products we offer. You can choose from our Golden Natural Cocoa Butter or our Deoderized Cocoa Butter. Our cocoa butter melt and pour is also available on that page as well.

Cocoa butter is awesome to use in your bath and body products! It is a fat actually taken from cocoa beans! Come on ladies, if you don’t already use it, I’m sure you’re dying to now! It actually helps signs of aging and I know you just can’t get the thought of that out of your head! This is a great product to try in your next projects, and watch out for more Enlightened by Layla!
