How Do Our Customers Use Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Our customers can create all sorts of different kinds of room scenting products with this sweet peppermint fragrance oil. First of all, potpourri and incense can include up to 50% of this vanilla scent. Any homemade cleaning supplies can be scented with this aroma at no more than 5% overall. Any aroma beads that are made with this scent will retain a strong scent. Further, various wax product creations can be made with this peppermint fragrance.

Candles and wax tarts can both include up to 10% of this sugary scent. Further, we found Joy Wax and WOW Wax will both perform perfectly for this fragrance oil. Also, soy wax will retain a nice, strong scent for this scent. We suggest that you use either two drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or a shredded red color block in an ample amount. Even if you choose to not follow our recommendation, just don’t use any crayons in the candle products or you will likely have your wick clogged.

How Do Our Customers Use Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Our Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil is a great scent for all kinds of bath and body products. First, products that rinse off the skin like bath gels, bath oils, bath teas, and bath bombs can use up to 5% of this fragrance oil.  Additionally, lotions, perfume oils, body sprays, and many other kinds of related products that remain on the skin can also use up to 5% of this peppermint fragrance oil.

Not only can this scent be used in soap, but its addition into cold process soap works wonderfully. In fact, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have revealed this scent to have no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The final product will have a milk chocolate discoloration and the bar will have a very strong scent retained. Due to the 6% vanillin content, it is likely that all or part of the discoloration in these soaps can be prevented by including vanilla white color stabilizer. If you wish to color any of your bath and body products, then we suggest using red soap dye in the amount that satisfies you.  Just remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products as it is not body safe.

IMG_0194Shadowing Natures Garden

The past couple of weeks we have had two high school seniors shadowing Natures Garden.  These two wonderful ladies, Kacie and Caitlyn, have been an absolute blast! We’re very sad to see them go but their time here was definitely well spent. Not only did they get the opportunity to see how we operate at Natures Garden, but they made some pretty cool projects along the way. Now, I’d like to share some of what these lovely girls have been working on during the past couple weeks.

Prior to starting any projects we needed to know what types of fragrance oils the girls liked most. This way we could have them making all sorts of projects with their favorite scents! Therefore, we had them go to the fragrance bar, which is located in the Natures Garden store, to smell all sorts of our delightful fragrance oils. After smelling everything that they could, Kacie and Caitlyn each picked out ten of their favorite scents. They also picked out some of their favorite recipes from our recipe box. Finally we could begin on the real fun, turning these fragrances into your very own soaps, candles, or anything else you can imagine.IMG_0153fragrance-barIMG_0154

 

 

 

 

The first project the girls tried out was the Hydrangea Candle Recipe. They used one of their shared favorite scents, Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil, and they both turned out great. Not only was their first project a complete success, but we were all pretty impressed with these candles and their colors choices.

Another beautiful creation was done using the Easter Confetti Soap Recipe. This fairly simple melt and pour recipe turned out to be a very lovely loaf. Not only did their soap loaves look fantastic but the Pink Orchid and Amber Fragrance Oil had their bars smelling amazing as well.confetti-soap1confetti-soap

 

 

 

 

One recipe that the girls were especially excited for was bath bombs. These bath time delights were made using, one of Kacie’s favorite fragrances, County Apple Fragrance Oil. Although the girls used the Orange Dreamsickle Bath Bomb Recipe, they gave it a slight twist by adding pink!bath-bombs2bath-bombbath-bombs-3

 

 

 

 

Next, the girls even learned how to make their own soap from scratch! They did an awesome in the pot swirl using the World Peace Cold Process Soap Recipe. The colors were vibrant and amazing just like the scent that was used, Fruity Rings Fragrance Oil.

world-peace-soap

world-peace-soap2

world-peace-soap3

 

 

 

 

Another method they learned in soap making was how to do hot process soap. The Purrs and Paws HP Soap Recipe was used to create these loaves and NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil was added as well. The loaves had glitter added and turned out to be quite pretty.

Also, the girls helped create a couple new recipes that will be coming soon! The first recipe is a melt and pour soap recipe that we really hope you’ll enjoy. The second recipe is new a lotion recipe that we are very excited to share with you.

It was great to have Kacie and Caitlyn working with us on all of these fun projects. It seems that these ladies got everything that they needed out of shadowing Natures Garden and have a better understanding of Nature’s Garden and what goes on here. They are both very funny and wonderful girls and we hope that they come back to visit us in the future! We would like to wish them the best of luck as they graduate from high school and prepare for college.  It truly was a pleasure to work with the two of you!

herbs in melt and pour soapHerbs in Melt and Pour Soap

Hello everyone, it’s time for a new creation!! We have created our new Chamomile Clay Soap using dried chamomile flowers & Rhassoul Clay to create a soap that exfoliates your skin while removing toxins! There are many amazing benefits to having herbs in melt and pour soap, especially as they work as an exfoliant for your skin! Chamomile actually helps to make your skin softer, reduce wrinkles and stretch marks, as well as working to heal flaky skin!

 

Ingredients:

Clay Soap Layer: 

120 grams of Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap

6 grams of Watercress and Aloe Fragrance Oil

7 grams of Rhassoul Clay Powder

11 grams of Vegetable Glycerin

Chamomile Flower Layer:

180 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

9 grams of Watercress and Aloe Fragrance Oil

10 grams of Whole Chamomile Flowers

Other Ingredients Needed:

Rectangle Dome Top Mold Market Mold

8 oz. Clear Bullet Bottle

White Fine Mist Sprayer 24/410

Rubbing Alcohol

Pam or other cooking spray

Mixing Bowls

Mixing Spoons

Paper Towels

Scale

Directions:

Start by spraying a paper towel with your cooking spray and then gently rubbing your paper towel into your mold. The cooking spray will help to make the soap easier to release from the mold when it is finished. Next, go ahead and weigh out 180 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap into one bowl, and 120 grams of Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap into another. Then into a third bowl, measure out 7 grams of Rhassoul Clay Powder and 11 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. Mix the clay and glycerin together thoroughly to make a paste.

herbs in melt and pour soap

Take the bowl with the Oatmeal Soap and in the microwave, melt down your soap. When it is fully melted, add your clay and vegetable paste mixture to the melted soap, as well as 6 grams of Watercress and Aloe Fragrance Oil. Make sure to mix it all together thoroughly. Once this is fully mixed together, pour your soap equally into 2 cavities of your mold. (Hint: If you pour into the middle, it will spread out more evenly!) Make sure to spray this layer with rubbing alcohol directly after pouring to defeat any air bubbles! Now let your soap sit, giving it enough time to set up and harden. If you pour the next layer too soon, the separate layers may combine with each other, and you may have brown coming into your clear layer.

herbs in melt and pour soap

Once your first layer has set up, go ahead and melt down your Diamond Clear soap in the microwave. When it is fully melted, add 9 grams of our Watercress and Aloe fragrance. Mix them together thoroughly. Before you pour it however, make sure to once again spray your first layer with rubbing alcohol, this will help each layer to adhere to each other. Then, go ahead and pour your clear layer on top of your brown layer. Once that is poured, you will need to work quickly to add your chamomile. Make sure to get your herbs down into the soap as much as you can, but do it quickly to get them in there before your layer hardens. (We have used 7 grams of chamomile for our soap, but you do not have to! Use as much or as little as you want!) Then leave your soap to sit until it has completely hardened.
