leo scentsLeo Scents

We wanted to start this year off with a fun and creative presentation.  So, we conducted some research to find exactly what fragrance notes and combinations would most likely correspond with the various Zodiac signs.  Based on specific personality traits of each sign, we were able to assemble particular scents that a person born under the Leo zodiac sign would like.

Beginning July 23rd, Leos quickly and playfully become the center of attention.  So, without further adieu; we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to say Happy Birthday to all Leos.  And, now we would like to welcome everyone to the lively world of Leo Scents.

Leos are considered anyone born between and including the dates of July 23rd through August 21st.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have anyone on staff at Natures Garden that is a Leo.  We do have family and friends that are Leos though.  They are a very warm and welcoming group with an enthusiasm and zest for life that is unmatched.  Always willing to be there and help out, Leos are considered a true and valuable friend.  When times get crazy, they will rush to console, cheer up, or celebrate with you.  Leos like to keep things in the present; never dwelling on what could have been. Their cheerful and optimistic attitude is one of the reasons as to why Leos are always surrounded by friends.

Leo - Confident, Encouraging, Ambitious, Loyal

Symbol- the Lion

Sign- Fire

This loving and good natured group is faithful and charitable. They are open minded and are quick to become the center of attention in a group setting. Leos are playful and fun; accepting and appreciating others for who they are. When it comes to scents, Leos prefer limelight scents with warming and floral notes.

In order to best capture a Leo’s interest, select fragrances that contain notes of:

Fruits: Lime, Tangerine, Mandarin

Florals: Orange Blossom, Juniper, Neroli

Spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg

cancer signCancer Scents

If there is one thing that Natures Garden knows besides fragrance oil, it is FUN!  So, earlier this year, we decided to present fragrance oil and fun together in a unique presentation as to how specific fragrance oils respond to different groups of people.  As for the official grouping, we selected to research the zodiac signs.  From there, the investigation started with finding which specific aromatic notes appealed to the personality traits of each specific sign.  And, this is where the FUN begins!

Today, it is officially that time again to change the zodiac sign!

Beginning June 22nd, the sign of Cancer tenaciously steps into their time to shine.  The entire staff at Natures Garden would like to be the first to cordially declare “Happy Birthday Cancer!”  And then affectionately welcome everyone to the comforting world of Cancer scents.

Cancers are considered people born between and including the dates of June 22nd and July 22nd.

We currently have one staff member working at Natures Garden that has the sign of Cancer.  Jenny in the order fulfillment department has a birth date of June 28th.  Fitting the Cancer mold to a tee, Jenny has incredible perseverance, is extremely dependable, and is very family oriented.  In fact, two of Jenny’s favorite past times are spending time with the family and researching genealogy.  A true nurturer, she is very quick to help others, and has the capability to make you feel very comfortable when you are around her.

Cancer- Caring, Responsive, Dependable, Devote

Symbol- the Crab

Sign- Water

Being protective, loving, and nurturing, this group of people are pillars in the family and friend units. Intuitive and imaginative, cancers also remain cautious and are prone to being emotional and private people.  Cancers feel most at home when they are adorning scents that make them feel comfortable.

People that have the sign of Cancer really take to these fragrance notes:

Fruits: Cucumber, Melon

Florals: Jasmine, Tuberose, Heliotrope

Musks: Myrrh, Vanilla

Cookie ScentPeanut Butter Cookie Fragrance Oil-Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The peanut butter cookie was invented by a gentlemen named George Washington Carver.  In fact, George came up with over 103 recipes that included peanuts.  The first peanut butter cookie was rolled thin and cut into shapes, just like your sugar cookies of today.  Eventually by the 1930’s they were “dropped” into balls and pressed with fork tines in a crisscross pattern.  Technically, there was no real reason for this additional step but it became the style peanut butter cookies became known for.  And, just like a freshly baked platter of peanut butter cookies, there is no denying the authentic aroma of this cookie scent.  It is so unbelievably real you may just think somebody baked a large batch of cookies.  This cookie scent is comforting, inviting, and so yummy; leaving quite the impression.  Peanut Butter Cookie Fragrance Oil is a very true scent to the real cookie.

Gemini Scents

gemini scentsGemini Scents

Once again, it is that time to officially change the zodiac sign!  This year we wanted to do something a bit different.  So, for a little fun, we thought of researching exactly what fragrances appeal to people under a particular zodiac sign.  And, what we found in our search was what aromatic notes most likely correspond with certain astrological signs.  These fragrance oil suggestions contain aromatic notes that a person born under a specific Zodiac sign will like based on their common personality traits.

Beginning May 21st, Geminis energetically become the driving force in the spotlight. So, we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to announce, Happy Birthday Gemini!  And then cordially invite everyone to the fascinating world of Gemini scents.

Geminis are considered people born between the dates of May 21st and June 21st.

Sadly, we currently do not have anyone working at Natures Garden that is a Gemini.  However, we have friends and family that are Geminis.  They are a fun loving crowd that love to talk.  Being that they are highly intellectual, geminis are constantly questioning and are forever thirsting for knowledge.  And, dueled with their intellect, they are also vastly creative.  Since geminis balance a life of inquisitiveness and wisdom they are often the life of a social gathering and really know how to work a room.  But, on the flip side; geminis can also be great listeners who can tap into their library of information and experience and offer sound advice.

Gemini-  Clever, Imaginative, Adaptable, Spirited
Symbol- the Twins
Sign-  Air

This intellectual group is not only polite and energetic, but also adaptable to any situation. Dueling both a chatty side and a sympathetic ear, people with this sign need diversity. Gemini’s have a true admiration for fragrance oils that present a contrast but still manage to come together to make a beautiful aroma.

People that have the sign of Gemini really take to these fragrance notes:

Fruits: Grapefruit, Lemon, Tangerine

Herbs: Lavender, Spearmint, Peppermint

Nuts: Hazelnut, Walnut, Almond
