IMG_0154Caitlyn Favorite Fragrances

Hi my name is Caitlyn and I am a senior at Fairview High School. My friend Kacie and I are shadowing Nature’s Garden for our senior project. Senior project at Fairview is optional, but we are given the freedom to choose a business of our liking to shadow for the last two weeks of the school year. Kacie and I wanted to do something different and fun so when we found Nature’s Garden we thought it was the perfect fit. On our first day we had the opportunity to spend time at the Fragrance Bar where we got to sample the smells of Nature’s Garden’s many fragrance oils. It was tough, but I happened to choose my top ten scents in order to share with you blog readers!

Black-tieBlack Tie Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of an accomplished, successful man, who is not afraid of taking risks.  Natures Garden’s black tie fragrance begins with top notes of Kaffir lime, lemon, and ozonic notes;  followed by middle notes of basil, black pepper, and cucumber;  sitting on base notes of vetiver and spice.

300x300-blue-raspberry-slushieBlue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance OilRemember the blue raspberry snow-cones you enjoyed as a child?  How about those fabulous blue raspberry slushies that can still be enjoyed at most movie theaters?  This fragrance captures the aroma of ripened raspberries, sugary cotton candy, and the effervescence of crushed ice.  This trip back to childhood truly smells good enough to eat…but better not.

300x300-candied-appleCandied Apple Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an irresistible blend of juicy apples, rounded out with notes of sweet plums and ripened strawberries; enhanced with a splash of lime, orange zests, with sharp green notes. 

 

Chai-TeaChai Tea Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is very complex! Our chai tea fragrance begins with top notes of spicy cinnamon bark and nutmeg; followed with a body of fresh green tea; finished off with the aroma of creamy soy milk.

 

300x300-Cool-Water-TypeCool Water Type Fragrance Oil – Compare Natures Garden’s Cool Water Type fragrance oil to the famous cologne for men.  Cool Water is classified as a refreshing, spicy, lavender, ambery fragrance. This masculine scent possesses a blend of lavender, jasmine, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood.

 

300x300-Country GardenCountry Garden Fragrance Oil – This fresh, romantic, floral fragrance oil by Natures Garden is fantastic during the whole year! This fragrance begins with top notes of fresh green clover, and ivy with middle notes of romantic snapdragon, rose petals, and carnations; ending with base notes of white musk and fig leaves. 

 

Fresh-Brewed-CoffeeFresh Brewed Coffee (Original) Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of strong black fresh brewed Arabica coffee beans. This is our original fresh brewed coffee fragrance.  Coffee fragrances do have base notes of vanilla in them, which may smell somewhat chocolately.

 

Funnel-CakeFunnel Cake Fragrance Oil – This quintessential state fair fragrance oil is a treat!  This yummy scent is a combination of fried dough sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon and the delicious taste of nostalgia.

 

 

Hazelnut-CoffeeHazelnut Coffee Fragrance Oil – This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an aroma of freshly brewed Arabica coffee beans combined with creamy vanilla with a base note of nutty hazelnuts.

 

 

Grape-Happy-CamperGrape Happy Camper Candy Fragrance Oil – Go gaga for the scent of ripe, juicy grape candy that will remind you of the sour grape candy enjoyed during childhood.

Well, here at Nature’s Garden, we’ve come up with the perfect soap recipe to capture the feeling of a romantic summer night spent with a man so hot it raises the temperature in the atmosphere! We’re introducing our new free recipe for our Aqua di Gio Soap!

181 grams of Coconut Oil

181 grams of Palm Oil

272 grams of Olive Oil

272 grams of Shea Butter

69 grams of NG Aqua di Gio Type Fragrance Oil

125 grams of Lye

Directions:

aqua di gio soap

 

Safety first! Always make sure you are wearing your protective glasses, gloves, and mask! Then begin by preparing your lye water. Weigh out 345 grams of distilled water and then weigh out 125 grams of lye. Carefully add the lye to your water, never add water to lye as this can cause an explosion! Mix thoroughly and then set it aside to cool.

 

aqua di gio soap

 

 

While you’re waiting for that to cool, go ahead and prepare your butters and oils. Weigh out 272 grams of Shea Butter, 272 grams of Olive Oil, 181 grams of Palm Oil, and 181 grams of Coconut Oil. Melt them down completely and then set them aside to cool as well.

 

aqua di gio soap

 

As you are waiting for those to cool, go ahead and get your colors ready. In two separate mixing bowls, measure out 6 drops of Neon Blue colorant and 7 drops of Teal. Then measure out 17 grams of Titanium Dioxide and pour just a little bit of your oils into the bowl with the titanium, mixing them together until you have achieved a paste-like consistency. This will be your color for your white swirl.

021

 

Using the thermometer, check the temperatures of your oils and lye water until they have reached about room temperature (72 degrees Fahrenheit) and are within ten degrees of each other. Once they are at the correct temperature, pour 8 grams of Sodium Lactate into your lye water and mix it together thoroughly.

 

 

025

 

 

 

Then go ahead and carefully pour your lye water into your oils. Mix them together thoroughly.

Then pour 459 grams of your mixture into the bowls with your colorants, mixing them thoroughly with a stick blender. In your base bowl with the remaining mixture, add your titanium dioxide paste and mix. In each bowl, add 23 grams of your NG Aqua di Gio Type fragrance and stick blend.

 

aqua di gio soap

 

 

 

Next, in a separate bowl, pour each of your colors into separate sections of the bowl.

 

 

aqua di gio soap

 

 

Once they are completely poured, place a spatula at the edge of the bowl and drag it all the way across in a straight line. Then place the spatula right where two colors begin to mix and drag it around the bowl in a full circle.

 

aqua di gio soap

 

 

When you are finished swirling your soap, you can begin to pour it into your mold. Carefully pour it from side to side in the mold, helping to achieve an even better swirl! Make sure to leave just a little bit of each color so that you can swirl the top of your soap!

 

aqua di gio soap

 

 

 

Taking the last of your colored soap, pour each color in a straight line across the top.

 

 

aqua di gio soap

 

 

 

Then with your skewer, swirl the top of your soap!

 

 

 

Make sure to let your soap sit for at least 24 hours before removing it from the mold. Once it has been removed from the mold, your new Aqua di Gio Soap will need to sit for at least 4 to 6 weeks before using; giving it enough time to cure and become less alkaline. Then it is ready for you to use and enjoy! Make sure to check out all the rest of our free recipes and classes as well, and keep watching for more Enlightened by Layla!

basil Basil

Hi everyone! Are you looking for new crafts? Maybe a new herb to use in your bath and body products? Or maybe it’s your first time making soaps or bath and body products and you’re looking for a good herb to use? Well here it is! How about basil? Basil is a wonderful herb that can be used in a variety of ways in many different products and industries! It is most well known for being used in foods and for culinary purposes, but it can also be used for medicinal purposes, skin care, hair care, bath and body products and even soaping!

Basil, or otherwise known as ocimum basilicum, is an herb in the family Lamiaceae that is mainly used for culinary purposes. It is native to India, New Guinea, Southeast Asia, and China. It was first domesticated in India and has been cultivated for over 5,000 years there. The word basil comes from the Greek word βασιλεύ, meaning “king.” In India, it is believed that placing basil in the mouths of the dying ensures that they will reach God. Ancient Egyptians believed that basil would open the gates of heaven for their loved ones and in Europe, basil is placed in the hands of the dead to ensure a safe journey.

There are many medicinal benefits to using basil as well. There are anti-septic properties in the leaves that help treat wounds, ulcers, and cuts. It is also rich in vitamin A which helps to treat many eye problems such as sore eyes and blindness. Basil also helps to prevent glaucoma, cataracts, and degeneration of the eyes. Basil tea is said to help promote milk production in nursing mothers and it is said that mothers should take basil right before or after birth to promote blood circulation. The leaves are rich in phytonutrients and healing oils that treat malarial and dengue fevers. The leaves also help the body to form new blood cells and renew energy levels that can help stop weight gain. Basil can also be used to treat colds, sore throats, throat and mouth infections, headaches and migraines, restlessness and the pain caused from chicken pox, measles and small pox. It also helps to sharpen the mind and is a great stress reliever.

Many bath and body can contain basil as well. Many common products are lotions, ointments, creams, massage oils, bath teas, bath bombs, bath teas, facials tonics and masks, and shampoos and conditioners. Basil is a great exfoliant for the skin, and also helps to treat acne and prevent blackheads, and treats many skin infections and even ringworm. It can prevent gray hair and hair loss and also gives hair a better luster when used as an infusion in shampoos and conditioners. Basil also helps to strengthen the hair and rejuvenate the hair follicles. When basil is used for soap making, it gives the soap a wonderful aroma, is a gentle skin exfoliant and treats acne problems.

Wondering how to find this awesome product on our site? Just type “basil” in the search bar! That will take you directly to a page titled “Search Results for “Basil.”” It shows our ground basil leaf, and all of our wonderful basil fragrances! Our basil class is also available right there!

Directions:

  1. Take all dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly and then set aside.

 

  1. Using a double boiler method, mix the cocoa butter with the coconut oil and heat it until it melts.

 

  1. Next, pour the cocoa butter and coconut oil mixture in with the dry ingredients and mix it all together.

 

  1. After it is thoroughly mixed, add in your 20 grams of Magic Potion Fragrance Oil.

 

  1. Make sure the fragrance oil is completely mixed in, and then generously add in your Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant until you are satisfied with the green color.

 

  1. Spray your mixture with Witch Hazel to help it form.

 

  1. After you’re satisfied with your color, take handfuls of the mixture and start forming into cookie shapes. The mixture will make about ten cookies.

 

  1. Make sure they are hard and compact so they do not fall apart! When you are finished making the cookie shapes, start adding your eyeballs!

 

  1. Add as many eyeballs as you want, until you are satisfied with the look. Let your Monster Cookie Bath Bombs sit until they completely harden.
