NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil is one of the best selling fragrance oils in the masculine category since its introduction to the Natures Garden fragrance family

NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil- Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Sometimes in the fragrance industry, creating duplications of perfumes and colognes in the market can be quite the task.  Since many people know what the fragrance smells like, the duplication has to be dead on.  NG Aqua Di Gio Type fragrance oil could be the original scent’s identical twin.  But, this did not come easily at first.  It actually took numerous versions to be created before we finally had one that was perfect.  This fragrance oil is super sexy and is one of our top sellers.  Not only do the women love this scent on their man, but men love to smell this good too!  And, all bath and body items of this fragrance can be made at a fraction of the cost compared to many retail stores; making both men and women happy, happy, happy.

What does NG Aqua Di Gio Type Smell Like?

If you have not had the pleasure of smelling this unbelievable scent, it is described as such:  A sexy, fresh, aquatic aroma with bergamot, neroli, and tangerine; flowing into mid notes of rosemary, jasmine, and persimmon; all sitting on a woodsy base note of essential oil of patchouli.   In fact, one of our customers refers to this scent as “a fresh just want to attack your husband scent.”

How Do Our Customers Use NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil?

NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil is considered to be a MUST HAVE fragrance by many of our customers. 

For those of you that are candle crafters; our customers use this fragrance oil in their soy, pillar, ecosoya, and Joy wax candles.  The scent is amazingly strong in the hot throw.  Some of our customers even use NG Aqua Di Gio Type Fragrance Oil in their oil burners and also make aroma beads with it too.

On the bath and body end, the possibilities for this fragrance oil are endless.  The usage percent for this fragrance oil is 5%, and is used to make:  Melt and pour soaps, body butters, homemade lotions, after shave butters, shower gels, perfume oils, body splashes, lotions bars, and bubble bombs.  Finally, for those of you that are cold process soapers, this fragrance received awesome reviews, and is a dream to soap.  Here are the official results:  Perfect Pour, no ricing, no acceleration, discolors to a butterscotch.  Awesome smell!

Fragrance & Fun for Everyone

Inspire, Create, and Dominate!

Sparkles!!! Nicole

fragrance oils1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Amelia Ruth Thompson, owner & founder of Radical Works.

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I’ve been creating things literally my entire life. Over time, the things I would create would take up space; more space than I actually had. When in Spring 2009, a friend suggested, “Why don’t you sell things on Etsy?” So my original idea was simply to clear out space. I opened a shop, but nothing sold. In 2010, the same friend invited me to share a table with her at Louisianime II. There, I sold many of my crafts, with a lady suggesting I open a business to sell items all the time. So the following week, I opened a new shop, Radical Works. From there, I’ve added many difference types of products; as Radical Works is not limited to a single category. Having a shop has not only helped me maintain my crafts and organization, but it has also opened up my mind to many different types of crafts. I always try to include different types within other items.

3. What products do you make and sell?  Starting off, I had Radical Bears (teddy bears), magnets, and some leather-working items. In the more recent inventory, I have Radical Bears, hats, scarves, gloves, along with various bath products. This includes soap, bath salts, and perfumes. I’ve also made and sold bath bombs & lotions at a craft show.

4. What are your business goals?  I try to set short term goals for myself, as the long term goals can quickly change. But the main goal for my business is freedom through expression. Too many times I’ve been the “odd ball out” in most cases. With my business, it gives me the avenue and method to express myself to others, as well as have others find themselves within my products. It has always been a message in my business: “I never make anything I would like myself”.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The main products I purchase from the awesome Natures Garden are their bases as well as their fragrances. The fragrances are what keep me coming back, and I love having the fragranced item with the purchases as well. I have a vase for the fragranced roses I’ve received over time.

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name: Kymberlee Ricke  Company Name: Wizard at Work

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I’ve been crafting my whole life and I had a brief flirtation with soap making for craft shows about ten years ago.  When the economy hit me and I became unemployed I discovered that I suddenly had both time and motivation to re-energize my crafting and I began making soaps, candles and bath bombs and listing them on Etsy.  My shop opened in 2010.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I primarily sell soap, candles, bath bombs and solid lotion bars.  I also toss in a few papercrafts like cards and gift tags and some of my photography and jewelry.

4.  What are your business goals?  My first goal is to make a product my customers love.  I use the minimal number of ingredients and avoid chemicals everywhere possible to make skin-friendly, child-friendly, wallet-friendly products.   On the financial side, this year my winter holiday season was successful enough that I can afford to go on one of my ‘bucket list’ photography trips this summer.  If I can do that each year, I’ll be thrilled.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  Of course I go through a ton of fragrance oils in my business.  Pomegranate and Peach are huge favorites with my customers.  I also use the Dill Pickle for something a little off the beaten path. And of course there’s always the good old stand-bys like vanilla, lavender and coffee. I use the 415 Soy Wax in my candles as well as in my vegan-option lip balms and solid lotion bars (it replaces the beeswax).fragrance oils

Soap Making with Regional Flair

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, soap, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , on by .

  fragrance-oils-51. What’s your name & Your Company Name: Hi, My name is Diane Weinberg and I’m the owner of The Southern Tip.

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? After being a teacher for over 22 years, I suddenly found myself to be an unemployed teacher.  After trying and trying unsuccessfully to get a job, ANY kind of job, I decided to create my own job. I started The Southern Tip and have not looked back. Although we’ve been in business only a couple of years, I’ve found that if you really want something, and are willing to work hard for it, you can be successful. Being a business owner has also opened many other doors to me, making it easier for me to achieve some of my other goals.

3. What products do you make and sell?  We sell handcrafted soap with a “regional flair”, lotions and lotion bars, aluminum free deodorant and scrubs. We hope to branch out into candles this summer.

4. What are your business goals?  Our goals may be a bit different than those of other businesses. We have three main goals: One is, of course, that we want our business to continue to grow and prosper.

A second goal is that we want to help promote and encourage a regional pride among our population. One of the ways we do this is by designing many of our products to reflect the area culture and to highlight our unique locale. Since we are in Texas and are also near the border with Mexico, these facts influence the soaps that we create. Our Tres Leches soap (inspired by a variety of cake made in our region using three milks) Chile con Queso soap, ( a popular and spicy dip made here) Chocolate Chachalaca soap (a turkey-like bird found in our area) and Ocelot soap ( a rare and endangered animal also found in our area) are some examples of our regional creations. Also, since another one of our selling venues is on a nearby island, South Padre Island, our Dunes, Padre Shores, Padre Island Dream, Sea Gull, Soap of the Sea, Sand Castle and Sand Bar soaps were created to reflect this.

Our third goal, and probably our most important goal, is that we want to serve as an inspiration to other unemployed/underemployed people, especially those who are over 50 and who find themselves in this difficult position, maybe for the first time in their lives. We want them to know that if you are willing to put in the work, to study, research and learn some new skills, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope.

This is one of the main reasons why we offer beginning soap making classes. We want to share our knowledge with others and hopefully help others learn at least one way to supplement their income or at the very least, to create affordable, custom soap for their own families and friends.

Our long term dream would be to eventually open a folk school type of learning facility where many skills and crafts would be taught by experts in their fields. Some of the “old fashioned” skills that we would like to include, in addition to soap making, are such things as: candle making, basket making, clay work, wood turning, rug weaving, jewelry making, mosaics, small scale niche gardening, etc. We want to help people become more self-sufficient and teach them new skills that will enable them to supplement their income should they ever find themselves unemployed/underemployed.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  We are great fans of Nature’s Garden’s fragrance oils. There are so many to choose from and they are all wonderful! One of our favorites is Cracklin’ Birch. We have also used their goat’s milk lotion base and it is a very versatile product.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make lip balm, body butter, body scrubs, facial masks, soaps, and other spa products.

4.  What are your business goals?   My number one goal is always to provide spa quality products and excellent customer service!

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?   I love Nature’s Garden lip balm flavor oils, including Buttercream Cupcake, Guava, and Horchatta. I also love the herbs and botanicals including dried lavender buds, rosemary, juniper berries, spearmint, and chamomile.

The Importance of Social Media for Your Candle or Soap Business

This entry was posted in Natures Garden News, Natures Garden Sales, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , on by .

We asked you…

How important is social media for promoting your products?

“Extemely!!! But word of mouth from loyal customers cant be beat!!!!”
- Patti Ann

 

“It will be the biggest promoting concept there could be. I am not up and running yet but I am making contacts already.”
- Sheryl

 

“EXTREMELY! The best word of mouth possible because it spreads across the nation, world and not just locally.”
- Ashlee

 

“Extremely. Word of mouth and posted recommendations help a lot as well since they help populate your company in different ways and broadly.”
- Laura

 

“I agree that it is a part of our culture now and we truly do need it.”
- Erin

 

“It’s everything for me right now other than word of mouth which is always best.”
- Lynn

 

“In 2011…VEEERRRYYYY! It opens up your market in such a vast way, it’s almost unfathomable. When you promote your business via social networking you go from hometown to international.”
- Dava

 

Super duper important!!!! would have never made sales in Sweden, Canada and Australia without it, I am pretty sure!”
- Lather Soap Co

 

“In a time of instant gratification, connecting to clients and customers on Facebook/Twitter/Websites is vital. Nearly the first question I get with customers, if not about my products is “Do you have a website?” and then it becomes “Can I find you on Facebook?” soon after. They want to get sales/deals quick, which is why I don’t bother with an email list, they just check Facebook for sales. It also allows the customer to feel more connected to me with fast replies.”
- Briana
