How Do Our Customers Use Cashmere Type Fragrance Oil?

Cleaning products can be made that utilize this fragrance at a maximum of 4.6%.

Homemade soap, bath products, and body products can be made using this fragrance at a maximum of 5%. Perfumes will perform perfectly at or below this percentage. Also, bath and body products will perform well using the same concentration of this sensual fragrance. Also, soapers can utilize this fragrance for either melt and pour soap or cold process soap. Our cold process soap results show that our Cashmere Type Fragrance will produce a perfect pour! Not only that, but this fragrance causes no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. This scent will discolor to a very light beige and has a good scent retention. Further, we at Nature’s Garden regard Cashmere Type Fragrance to be an extremely nice, very upscale, and classy scent. Although the discoloration of this bar will be is minimal, vanilla white stabilizer can be used. This will help with any discoloration caused by the vanillin content of 1.05%, which will produce a whiter bar. However, there are more than 40 ingredients used by perfumists that can cause discoloration.  For coloring, we suggest using pink soap colorant and purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products.

Candles and other room scents can be handcrafted using Cashmere Type Fragrance. Homemade room scenters can use up to 50% for incense and potpourri. Also, this scent is nice and strong when used in aroma beads. Homemade candle crafters can use up to 10% of this fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax. Further, this scent performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax.  Plus, it is nice and strong in soy wax. We suggest using one drop of red liquid candle dye with a tiny bit of purple liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax to color these candles. On the other hand, a nice color can be made by shredding a small amount of red color block and purple color block into your melted wax. Just remember that crayons do not make a sufficient substitute for candle colorants. Although crayons may provide color, they will clog your wick.

We hope that use this sensual fragrance and it will inspire you to create magnificent works!

Homemade Tropical Lotion RecipeThis amazing Tropical Lotion Recipe is filled with skin loving and moisturizing elements.  But, not only does this lotion sink right into your skin, it smells like a tropical paradise.  Just the perfect thing to snap you out of the winter blues, and get you ready for summer!

To make this lotion, there are some supplies you will need.  To heat and melt the oils/butters, you will be using a double boiler method on your stovetop.  You will also need a larger mixing bowl to combine the water and butters/oils, as well as a stick blender to encourage the emulsification process.  Other than that, the rest of the supplies are pretty standard:  a scale, a mixing spoon, a spatula, and a funnel (optional).

As for the rest of the ingredients in this lotion recipe, they can all be found at Natures Garden.  You will also be able to find the bottles and lids to package your lotion in by clicking on this link.

Here is the lotion recipe to make (2) 8 oz. bottles:
Water Phase:
425 grams Distilled Water
8 grams Sodium Lactate
Oil Phase:
24 grams BTMS 25
10 grams Mango Butter
28 grams Rice Bran Oil
30 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
6 grams Vitamin E Oil 
To Scent and Preserve:
10 grams Optiphen Preservative 
12 grams Papaya Dragon Fruit Fragrance Oil 
To get the same color pictured, you will need:
5 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye Yellow
7 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye Blue

It is suggested before starting this recipe to prep your area with all of the supplies that you will need.  Also, clean and sanitize your work area as well as your packaging materials.

And now, the steps:

The Water Phase:
Step 1:  Using your scale, weigh out at least 525 grams of distilled water.  Even though you will only be using 425 grams for this lotion recipe, you want to account for evaporation while heating.  Place your water in a pot.  Place the pot on the stove top.  Heat the water to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once the water hits that temperature, hold it there for 20 minutes.  This step will eliminate any bacteria that may be in the water.

Step 2:  When the time has elapsed, remove the water for the stove top/heat. Weigh out 425 grams of the water.  Then, add the sodium lactate.  Stir and set aside.

The Oil Phase:
Step 1:  Grab a larger pot.  Place a few inches of tap water into this pot.  Put this pot on to the stove top on medium heat.  Now, weigh out and combine the following:  Mango Butter, BTMS, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, and the Vitamin E.  Place all of the ingredients into a smaller pot.  Then, place this smaller pot in to the larger one.  This is the double boiler method.  As the ingredients melt, stir occasionally.  Heat the ingredients in the smaller pot to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Mixing Phase: Get ready to move!
Step 1: Double check that your water and your oils are both around 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, in a large mixing bowl combine the oil mixture and the water.

The Cooling Phase:
Step 1:  Now, allow your mixture to cool.  The temperature that you are looking for is 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your lotion is this temperature, add the Optiphen preservative, colorant, and fragrance oil.  Once again, using your stick blender, mix.
