Angel Love FragranceAngel Love Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Angel was an American television series that aired from 1999-2004 starring David Boreanaz, and was a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about here, but I love me some David Boreanaz (that’s my Angel Love). Actual angels, the kind we find in religious stories and myths, are said to be messengers from God, serving as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth. Angels are also charged with guiding and protecting human beings. They are generally depicted with bird-like wings, wearing white, and exuding some form of light. It is safe to assume that they smell absolutely heavenly.

What Does Angel Love Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Angel Love Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a feminine, gourmand aroma with luscious rich top notes of lemon, raspberry, honeydew melon, black currants; with middle notes of jasmine, gardenia, and nutmeg; bottom notes of white chocolate, musk, sandalwood, and patchouli. Very complex!

Top Notes:  lemon, mandarin, cassis, raspberry, melon, black currants
Mid Notes:  apple blossoms, jasmine, honeysuckle, gardenia, nutmeg
Base Notes:  patchouli, vanilla, musk, white chocolate, sandalwood

How Do Our Customers Use Angel Love Fragrance Oil?

Candles: this fruity, floral fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Joy of joys, this angelic aroma is gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles are none. Pure, white candles. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.

Soaps: the maximum recommended usage percentage for this sweet scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%.

Our cold process soap testing results for Angel Love fragrance found that this scent had a perfect pour, causing no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and maintaining good scent retention. It did, however, discolor to beige. If you wish to combat discoloration in your bath and body products, we recommend trying our vanilla white color stabilizer. This is not a guarantee and you are responsible for testing the color stabilizer in your finished products. Other than that, our coloring recommendations are none.

Lotions and perfumes: the maximum recommended usage percentage in these applications is 5%. Angel Love fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes.

Room scenting: the maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. This delightful aura comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Antique Lace Fragrance

Antique Lace FragranceAntique Lace Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Lace itself is already quite delicate, but antique lace, made by intricate handiwork, is even more fragile. There are two main types of handmade lace: bobbin lace and needle lace. In bobbin lace, threads wound around bobbins are twisted and braided and then the pattern is set by pinning the weaving to a pillow. Needle lace, as the name implies, is made using a needle and thread. This is another scent inspired by something that takes an abundance of time and painstaking effort to make, but only seconds to smell! This fragrance captures the exquisite beauty of lace and softly ages it with a down of musk. The aroma alone will make you feel absolutely elegant.

What Does Antique Lace Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Antique Lace is the romantic scent of jasmine and fresh vanilla beans, with a base note of musk.  It’s even an NG Original Fragrance!

How Do Our Customers Use Antique Lace Fragrance Oil?

They make beautiful candles with a floral, musky aroma. Antique Lace scent performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Unfortunately, this scent is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of our Spectrum purple liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of purple color block into your melted wax. I’m not entirely sure why we recommend purple- it’s pretty? It’s noble? I recommend no color. The lace is white, right? And jasmine flowers are white. And vanilla is.. almost white. I say give it that “antique white” tint with a very, very small amount of yellow or brown liquid candle dye or shredded yellow or brown color block. Remember never to use crayons to color candles- it’ll clog up your wick!

They also make sensuously-scented soaps. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this luscious Antique Lace scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Antique Lace fragrance oil has a vanillin content of 6%- so it will likely discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results showed that Antique Lace caused acceleration and slight ricing in CP soap, but no separation and the finished soap was beautiful. The cured soap had discolored to a dark chocolate color and maintained good scent retention. To eliminate unwanted discoloration, we recommend trying out our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It is your responsibility to test it in your finished products. Our coloring recommendations for bath and body products are: use as much purple soap dye as you want!

They also use this idyllic aroma to create lotions and perfumes. Antique Lace fragrance performed perfectly in perfume and the maximum recommended usage percentage for lotions and perfumes is 5%.

This alluring aura is also ideal for scenting rooms. It is nice and strong in aroma beads and the maximum recommended usage percentage for Antique Lace in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Almond Macaroon Fragrance

Almond Macaroon Fragrance Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Guess what! Even more almonds. I think this is it, though, for now. Who knows, I could say that and then almonds rain down on me from the sky. If I’ve angered the almond gods. Anywho, here’s this: Almond Macaroon Fragrance. So, macaroons are typically made with ground almonds, sugar, and egg white, and then any other spices you may like. Isn’t that a heckuva lot like Almond Marzipan? You bet your sweet bippy it is, But guess what? This stuff is shaped into “small, circular cakes”* and baked (*I think you’d just call these cookies- but I don’t know a ton about baking, so I’ll defer to the wisdom of Wikipedia.)

What Does Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This luscious almond cookie (a-ha! It is a cookie!) fragrance by Natures Garden is sure to create a sensory delight. Fresh orange sweetens the toasted almond character, as bakery tones of warm cookie and toasted nut add a yummy sensation. Vanilla bean sweetens the cookie tones, completing the gourmand treat.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil?

All kinds of crazy ways! Firstly, they make some pretty sweet decorative candles. Almond Macaroon fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Unfortunately, this fragrance is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles made using this fragrance oil are: no color. I say try to get a vanilla tint using a very small amount of yellow and/or brown liquid candle dye or a very small amount of shredded color blocks.

Secondly, they make some pretty sweetly scented soaps. We happen to have a very cool Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe ourselves.  The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Macaroon fragrance oil in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. This fragrance performed well in bath and body products. The vanillin content of Almond Macaroon fragrance oil is 15.5%, which means it may discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that Almond Macaroon fragrance oil did great in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation; a perfect pour. It did, however, discolor to a dark chocolate color. It also has very strong scent retention. We have no color recommendations for soap, either, but if you’re looking to make your soap a color other than dark chocolate or prevent your bath and body products from discoloring, I recommended trying out our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer (though not a guarantee, it could help bring your soap to a white color, and then you can add whichever soap dye you like!)

Thirdly, they make lotions and perfumes. The recommended maximum usage percentage for Almond Macaroon scent in lotions and perfumes is also 5%. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Finally, they make room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Macaroon fragrance oil in potpourri and incense is 50%. This fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Almond Marzipan Fragrance

Almond Marzipan fragranceAlmond Marzipan Fragrance Oil Spotlight

I seem to be unable to escape almonds. Though that may be because we’re in the “A’s.” They’re even used to make amaretto. Ah! So what the heck is marzipan? It’s a finely ground almond powder mixed with sugar or honey and sometimes egg whites. This can be its own confectionery treat, or made into adorable little shapes to put on top of cakes. Some times it’s shaped and covered in chocolate, other times it’s used as the icing on cakes. It’s apparently quite popular in the UK to use marzipan to ice large fruitcakes.

What Does Almond Marzipan Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Indulge yourself with this warm, slightly gourmand, almond marzipan aroma.  A truly luscious combination of almond, rose, benzoin, cassis, and black currant.  It starts with top notes of mimosa and hawthorn, followed by middle notes of creamy rose, black currant, and benzoin, all sitting on a base of almond, vanilla, and musk.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Marzipan Fragrance Oil?

They make delectable decorative candles. Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. This fragrance is gel wax compatible. We have no color recommendations for candles. Mine are- maybe a very small amount of brown? Maybe a small amount of yellow? A very slight mix of the two? We’ve got brown liquid candle dye and yellow liquid candle dye and brown and yellow color blocks.

They also make sweet soaps from scratch. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Marzipan fragrance oil in soaps, bath gels, bath oils, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results show that this fragrance oil performed well in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and no discoloration; a perfect pour. The scent comes across nice and strong in CP soap. Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performed well in bath and body products. This fragrance oil has a vanillin content of 0.1%, so you might see some very, very slight discoloration in your bath and body products. Again- no coloring recommendations here!

Marzipan is shaped into all kinds of different things and we’ve got all kinds of different soap molds. The smaller molds can be used to make sample-sized soaps or embeds for your candles. I personally think the little duckies mold would work swimmingly. Who doesn’t like cute little duckies? If you’re going for almond authenticity, I’m sorry to say we don’t currently have any almond-shaped molds, but we do have football molds, and after you used the soap enough, it would probably just look almond-shaped. Or you could shave the laces off and just have it be almond-shaped without the wait.

How about perfumes and lotions? Of course! The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 5%. We’ve also found that Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performs perfectly in perfume.

And room scents? You bet! The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Marzipan fragrance oil in incense and potpourri is 50%. This fragrance is also nice and strong in aroma beads.

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!

Begin with four heat safe bowls.  Place 219 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in each bowl.  Use a microwave to melt the soap.  We recommend melting the soap base 30 seconds at a time until it is completely melted.

 

 

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-RecipeOnce it is melted, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s Salt Water Taffy Fragrance Oil to each bowl.  Stir well to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.

In the first bowl, add three drops of the neon blue soap colorant.  To the second bowl, add two drops of the neon pink colorant.  The third bowl will need four drops of the neon orange colorant.  In last bowl, place three drops of the neon green soap colorant.  Stir each bowl well to incorporate the colors.

 

Salt-Water-Taffy-Soap-Recipe

Once the color is mixed,  pour your soap.  Pour each color into its own cavity of the mold.  Once the soap has setup, you can go ahead and remove the melt and pour soap from the mold.  Cut it into three equal sections.

Lastly, it is time to wrap your soap.  Using scissors, cut strips of parchment paper.  They need to be 6 inches long and 7 inches wide.  Wrap the soap with the parchment paper and use a twist ties to close the sides.  It will look similar to wrapped piece of salt water taffy.
