What Does Jack Frost Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A wonderful Christmas fragrance oil by Natures Garden. A crisp clean peppermint aroma with hints of vanilla bean. Many of our customers sell this fragrance year round by renaming it Buttermint Candy.

How Do Our Customers Use Jack Frost Fragrance Oil?

Bath and body products that include this wonderful winter fragrance oil will perform well. Your homemade recipes for bath and body products can use a maximum of 5% for this scent. Also, this scent will perform perfectly in perfumes, as long as there is a fragrance oil concentration of no more than 5%. Furthermore, this minty scent can be used to create soaps through a variety of different methods. For example, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results revealed that this scent is great for creating soap using this method. Not only does adding this scent provide a perfect pour, but this batch will have other preferable qualities too. A batch containing this scent will have no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. The final product will have a very strong fresh and clean mint scent and the bar will discolor to a brown color. Due to the 2% concentration of vanillin, adding vanilla white stabilizer may prevent some of the discoloration from occurring. However, there are more than forty ingredients that are used in fragrance manufacturing that could potentially contribute to discoloration in the final product. While we suggest not adding color to bath and body product containing this scent, you can use any color of soap colorant to achieve your desired hue.

Our customers can use this peppermint fragrance oil to create a wide variety of great room scenting products. Potpourri and incense can be formulated with a maximum of up 50% for this fragrance oil. Any household cleaning products can be created using no more than 5% of this scent in their recipe. Additionally, the fragrance oil’s scent will remain nice and strong in aroma bead products. Moreover, candle creations can be made using this sweet minty fragrance oil. Any candle products that are made with either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax can include up to 10% of this fragrance oil. Joy wax and wow wax will both perform perfectly for this fragrance oil. Also, the scent will remain nice and strong in candle products made of soy wax. While we recommend not using colorants for candle creations containing this scent,you can use any color of either liquid candle dye or a shredded color block to achieve your desired hue.  Remember to never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Scented Play Dough

Fragrances like Natures Garden’s Reindeer Poo make really amazing scented childrens play dough!

This weekend was a chilly one.  Snow fell in many areas, and although ours did not stick, we did not go unnoticed.  With the weather not really cooperating, my girls and I were trapped in the house all weekend long.  Not fun!

Needless to say, we were already feeling the walls closing in.  We needed something entertaining to do.  Off to google I went to see if there were any projects we could do to pass the time away.

My girls are huge fans of creative things.  They love to color, draw, build castles with their building blocks, and play with craft dough.  So, at least I knew if I could find something that was hands on, we were in there.  I knew that my mom had made craft dough with the girls before and they had a blast.  I only needed to find a recipe.

After quite a few links, I stumbled upon a great recipe of unscented play dough.  Could this play dough be scented?  Yes it can!

This craft dough is pretty basic and can be colored and scented to extend the wow factor.   My girls selected all the fun Christmas scents, and I double checked to make sure that all of the fragrances were body safe.  I also let them choose the colors for the craft dough.

Here are the supplies that are needed:

8 cups flour- I used the All-purpose kind

8 cups warm water

4 cup salt- the regular table kind

1 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup Cream of Tartar

Latex gloves

5 Glass plates

5 gallon sized Ziploc bags

5 Pipettes

Natures Garden Soap Dyes:  Red,
Blue, Yellow, Green

Natures Garden Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Jack Frost Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Snowman Balls Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Mrs. Claus Cookies Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance oil

 

This recipe is for a really large batch, but I wanted to make sure that both girls had a nice amount of craft dough to play with.

 

First: In a large saucepan, mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, water, and vegetable oil together.  Stir.  Place the saucepan on the stovetop and cook over low heat.  Stir occasionally.  You are looking for when the craft dough starts to look like mashed potatoes.  The key to when it is finished is when the dough clumps together and you can pull it from the sides of the saucepan.  You do not want the dough to be sticky though.  Keep the low heat on until the dough appears dry.  You are seeking the same texture as store
bought craft dough.

 

Second:  Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.  You want the craft dough to cool naturally.  It is done when you can touch the dough and it is cool.  While the dough is cooling, wipe down your counter space with warm soapy water.  You want to do this now so that the area is dry for the next step.

 

Third:  Carefully, dump all of the craft dough onto your work space.  Start to knead.  You will knead until the craft dough is smooth.  It will almost have a silky feel to it.

 

Four:  Divide it up.  Since we are making 5 different scents and colors, you will want to separate the dough as evenly as possible
into 5 large balls.  Please note, one of the balls will be uncolored, this will be your cream color.

 

Five:  Once you have all of the balls, using your index finger poke a hole into it.  You are going to use this hole for your soap dye coloring.  One color designated per ball.  I would suggest doing this step one ball at a time.

 

Six:  Put on your latex gloves.  Take one glass plate and place a ball on it.  Carefully, start to knead the ball on the plate.  Keep
kneading until the color is consistent throughout the entire dough portion.  If you need to go bolder on the color, just recreate the ball and hole and start over again.  The tip here is do not be afraid to knead your heart out in this step.  Repeat this step for each color until you have all colors completed.

 

Seven: Once you are happy with your new bright and beautiful dough colors, stick each one individually in a gallon Ziploc bag.  It
is time to get your scent on in the next step.

 

Pause- Here is our scent to color break down we used:

RED- Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin Fragrance oil

BLUE- Jack Frost Fragrance oil

CREAM (uncolored)- Snowman Balls Fragrance oil

GREEN- Mrs. Claus Cookies Fragrance oil

YELLOW-Reindeer Poo Fragrance oil

 

Eight: Using one pipette per dough bag, drip 2ml of the fragrance into the Ziploc bag and sealshut.  Knead again, but do it in the
Ziploc bag until all of the fragrance is absorbed.  Repeat for the remaining 4 dough bags.

 

Nine: Get crafty and have some fun!  When you are finished, store left over craft dough in Ziploc bags.

 

This was really a ton of fun to do.  My girls had a blast making it and playing with it. This is something that is fun, easy, and way cheaper than the store bought.

 

Caution:  Because the craft dough is scented with fragrance oil, make sure that any surface that is used with making or playing
with it is safe for fragrance.  Fragrance can ruin wood stained areas.  Scented play dough contains fragrance;  do not allow children to eat the play dough!

 

Fragrance & Fun For Everyone!
