Black Currant Original Fragrance OilBlack Currant Original Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil is a blended, fruity floral scent.  First and foremost, we need to discuss the currant.  Basically, there are two distinct fruits that are called currants.  First we have the dried zante grape which is like a raisin and is primarily used for baked goods such as scones, currant buns, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding and mincemeat.  Second, we have a fresh, tiny berry that is a distant relative to the gooseberry.  The berries are high in vitamin C and antioxidants and are either black, red, or white.  The black currants are more tart.  They have a variety of uses which include preserves, syrups and liqueurs as they are often marketed as “champagne grapes“, but despite the name, they are not used for making champagne.  While the red and white are best for eating right out of your hand as they are very small and sweet, with quite an intense flavor of a grape.  The currant is very popular fruit in the UK, but is starting to gain fans here in North America.

What Does Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A Natures Garden original fragrance, smells like a rich, fruity blend of juicy wild berries and ripe currant highlighted by sparkling citrus and wrapped in a blend of floral infused vanilla.

Top – Red Raspberry, Strawberry, Black Currant
Mid – Mandarin Orange, Peach Nectar, Concord Grape
Bottom – Jasmine Petals, Parma Violet, Vanilla Bean

How Do Our Customers Use Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil?

Well, the answer to depends on your imagination and creativeness.  Do you prefer candle making or soap making?  Would you like to use Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil for incense and potpourri or for cleaning purposes?

For potpourri and incense, the maximum usage is 50% and for cleaning purposes the maximum usage is 5%.  A cotton ball soaked in a couple of drops of Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil can be thrown into a vacuum cleaner bag.

For the soaper in all of us, let’s start with the homemade soaps and bath and body products.  The maximum usage is 5%.  Coloring suggestions for Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil in soaps is purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.  This fragrance oil will discolor to a beige. Vanillin content of this fragrance (this percentage includes all forms of vanillin) is .60%.  Vanilla White Color stabilizer may help prevent discoloration due to vanilla.  However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products.  Cold process soap testing results shows no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation.  The scent is very strong.  Nice!  For other homemade bath and body products, this fragrance oil performs well.

For those of us who like to make homemade candles, Black Currant Original Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.  The maximum usage is 10%.  Coloring suggestions for this bold, fruity scent is to use 6 drops of purple liquid candle dye and 2 drops of black liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred  purple and black color block into your melted wax.  Never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Apple Pecan Sage Fragrance

Apple Pecan Sage FragranceApple Pecan Sage Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Again, another amazing apple aroma. After some brief research on Wikipedia, I can tell you that “pecan” comes from a Native American word meaning ‘a nut that requires a stone to crack.’ No stones needed to open this fragrance oil. (There’s a lot of cool information on that pecan page; learn something new!) Pecans, much like our friend the almond, are drupes- not technically nuts- but in my experience, the more you try to convince someone you’re not nuts, the more nuts you seem. The important part is that the nutty scent of pecans goes well with apples and spicy sage. Sage is a natural deodorizer and has many additional uses that you can read about in our Sage Class. (Our fragrance oil is for smelling purposes only- but we do sell sage leaf, sage incense smudging wands, and white sage leaves for all of your sage needs!)

 What Does Apple Pecan Sage Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of sweet, freshly picked apples with aromatic spices and a wonderful nutty flavor.

Top:  Apple, Pear, Banana
Mid:  Cinnamon, Sage, Clove, Cardamom
Base:   Pecan, Vanilla

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Pecan Sage Fragrance Oil?

They create candles! This spicy, nutty, apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage of this spicy sweet scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are to use four drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of red color block in your melted wax. (Coloring with crayons will clog your wick; don’t do it!)

They make savory soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this bountiful bouquet in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results found that CP soap made with this fragrance had perfect pour with plenty of time to play. (I smell swirls!) There was no ricing, no acceleration, and slight oil separation, but it absorbs back into the soap. The scent stays very strong, and the soap discolors to a brown color. This might be due to the fact that this full-bodied fruit fragrance has a vanillin content of 3% (but truthfully, over 40 ingredients can cause discoloration). Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help prevent discoloration due to vanilla. Testing will need to be done by the customer with all fragrances they choose. Our coloring recommendations for bath and body products made with this awesome apple aroma are to use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

How about lotions and perfumes? The maximum recommended usage percentage of this savory scent in perfumes and lotions is 5%. It was found to perform perfectly in perfumes.

And room scents? Sure! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this autumn aura in incense and potpourri is 50%. It comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Apple Crisp Fragrance

Apple Crisp FragranceApple Crisp Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Why not warm up to a freshly-baked apple aroma just in time for autumn? We’ve got plenty of them, and they all smell awesome. Apple Crisp- the food- is baked apples topped with streusel. If you click the link in the title, there’s a sweet free Apple Crisp recipe on our Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil page. Mmm. Remember to never ever eat fragrance oil. Also remember that once you use a baking pan, measuring utensil, or any other kitchen supplies to make soap, candles, anything with chemicals, fragrance oils or dyes, don’t use it again for baking. It’s no longer food safe. Even if you wash it, chemical residue may still remain, and can get into your food. Blech. So buy two adorable kitchen sets- one for making your delicious apple crisp, and the other for making your delicious-smelling Apple Crisp-scented candles/soaps/lotions/perfumes/room-scents.

What Does Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of a red juicy apple combined with buttercream and cinnamon with a base note of a baked oatmeal cookie.

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil?

Candles? Of course. This alluring apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for this sweet spicy scent are to use 3 drops of burgundy, plus 3 drops red, plus one drop brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Or if you prefer to use color block, we suggest shredding ample amounts of burgundy, red, and cinnamon into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayon- it will clog your wick!

Soaps? Certainly. The maximum usage percentage of this bakery scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 1%. Cold process soap testing results show that this apple aura is ideal for CP soap: no acceleration; no separation; no ricing; good scent retention. The vanillin content of this freshly-baked fruit fragrance is 3%- so it may have the tendency to discolor your bath and body products. In fact, our cold process soap testing results found that it discolored soap to a very light tan color. If you wish to combat this- try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It’s not a guarantee, but it may help. Ultimately, you are responsible for the results in your finished product. Anyway, we recommend coloring your bath and body products scented with Apple Crisp fragrance by using burgundy soap dye (on clearance!) in the amount that satisfies you. But in case we run out of that by the time you read this blog post, perhaps mix a little Red Oxide and Brown Oxide FUN soap colorant to create an apple cinnamon-y color.

Can I rub it on my body? Sure, if you make lotions or perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 0.5%- measure carefully. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Can I rub it on the WORLD?! Uh.. sure. Just be responsible about it. The maximum recommended usage percentage for incense and potpourri is 50%. and this scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Apple Butter Pie FragranceApple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil Spotlight

This is yet another one of those fragrances that gives you a sweet scent without putting in all the work of making the real-life version it is modeled after. Our Apple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil page features an apple butter pie recipe, which seems simple enough, but you still need to make apple butter before making your apple butter pie. And that alone is enough to fill your house with the sweet smell of spicy apples. But who is to say how long that will last? This fragrance oil allows you to maintain that amazing apple aroma long after the last piece of pie would have been lovingly devoured.

What Does Apple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The perfect arrangement of tart pie apples, apple butter, evaporated milk, cinnamon, and buttery, flaky pie crust.  Both an NG Original Scent and a best seller! 

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil?

Candles: this freshly baked fragrance performed perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of red liquid candle dye and two drops of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of cinnamon color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles. It’ll clog the wick, the candle won’t work, it’s a whole mess. You could even use the stainless steel tart floater candle mold to make small pie-shaped, pie-scented wax melts using our Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Soaps: the maximum recommended usage percentage for this apple aroma in soaps, bath gels, bath oils, and cleaning products is 1%. Apple Butter Pie fragrance performs well in bath and body products. The vanillin content is 0%, so it is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products too much. Our cold process soap testing results found that in CP Soap, this sweet, spicy scent caused slight acceleration, but no ricing and no separation, and discolored the soap to a straw color. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer might not be very helpful when attempting to correct discoloration of products made using this fragrance because the vanillin content is 0%, so it’s more likely that the cause of discoloration in this oil is something other than vanilla. You can always test it to be sure. Our coloring recommendations for soap are: use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Or you could use a little bit of brown soap colorant to make it pie-colored and use this pie heart mold to make pie-shaped soap. How cute is that?

Lotions and perfumes: this mouth-watering scent performs perfectly in perfumes and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and perfumes is 1%.

Room scents: the maximum recommended usage percentage for this apple butter pie aura in incense and potpourri is 50% and it comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Spearmint Soap Problems

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

spearmint soap problemsSpearmint Soap Problems

Hello everyone! As you know, I’ve recently been making many different soap recipes and learning more and more about the soap making process. We posted a blog about the wonderful Spearmint Soap I made using our Spearmint Fragrance Oil, and now I’m back to tell you all about some of the problems I had making that gorgeous gray and green soap. That beautiful soap was actually my second time making this recipe, and as I’m sure you’ve figured out, the first time didn’t go so well! In the first recipe, instead of doing green and gray swirls, I instead tried out just an all-over green base.

One of my first problems was with my white topping for the soap. I had researched so many different pictures and had seen so many lovely whipped soap toppings that I thought this was one soap I could easily whip up and create myself! However, once I had prepared and poured my green soap base, I was waiting for my white topping to set up to a frosting consistency so that I would be able to fluff it all over the top of the soap. However, while I was waiting, I panicked and poured the white on top way too soon. This caused my top to not be able to peak as well as not being fluff-like. Because I poured too soon and my topping was still not fully set up, this also caused part of the white to sink into the green soap since the green soap was not fully set up either. You can definitely see the sinking after the soap was cut, there were no straight lines and you can see the spots where the topping sank right in! So for all of you other soap makers out there, always make sure to give your topping enough time to set up, or else you will end up with your topping sinking into your base! You also won’t be able to peak the top like you want!

Another big problem I had was using way too much green colorant for the base of my soap. Instead of coming out with a beautiful mint green color like the remake, the green of my first Spearmint Soap was a dark hunter-like green. While there is nothing wrong with a hunter green, this color did not go with the Spearmint theme. Once I completed the remake, this soap turned out absolutely beautiful! Have any of you experienced soap makers out there had any mistakes like these? I would love to hear about them! Please contact me here at Nature’s Garden, or you can always contact us here with any thoughts, concerns, or questions that you may have! Make sure to check out all of our wonderful free recipes and classes! You’re sure to adore each and every one of our recipes! Make sure to check out all of our Soap Classes as well to help you along!

Always make sure to protect yourself first with your gloves, glasses, and mask! Then you can prepare your lye water. Weigh 345 grams of distilled water, and 125 grams of lye. Carefully pour your lye into your water. Never pour water into lye! This can cause an explosion! Thoroughly mix your lye water and then set it aside to cool down.

Next, you can get your butters and oils ready. Weigh out 272 grams of Shea Butter, 272 grams of Olive Oil, 181 grams of Palm Oil, and 181 grams of Coconut Oil 76. Melt these down completely and then set them aside to cool as well.

While you are waiting for both of these to cool, you can get your colors ready. In separate bowls, add 5 grams of Black Oxide colorant, and 7 grams of Neon Orange. Then in another bowl, measure out 15 grams of Titanium Dioxide, mixing this thoroughly with just a little bit of your oils from your base bowl until you have achieved a paste-like consistency.

Make sure to keep checking your oils and lye water temperatures using your thermometer, until they have reached about 72 degrees Fahrenheit (room temperature) and are within ten degrees of each other. Then carefully pour your lye water into your butters and oils, mixing it together very thoroughly with a stick blender until you have come to a light trace.

When your mixture is at a light trace, pour 400 grams into the bowl with black colorant, 500 into the orange, and 500 in a separate bowl, adding your titanium paste to this last bowl. Then thoroughly mix each color. Make sure to add 20 grams of your Animalistic Instinct fragrance to your black bowl, and 25 grams to the orange and white. Again, make sure to mix them thoroughly!

Once your colors are completely mixed, you can begin to pour them into your mold. We started with our orange, carefully pouring just a little bit in a straight line all the way across the mold.

Then we alternated all three colors until the mold was almost full, leaving just a little bit of each color in our bowls.

With the remaining colors, we splattered it over the top of the soap into gorgeous designs! Splatter the rest of your soap however your heart desires!

 

 

Once you have finished your soap, it will need to sit to set up for at least 24 hours before removing it from the mold. Once it is removed, your new Tiger Stripe Soap will need to sit for at least 4 to 6 weeks to give it enough time to cure and become less alkaline. After that, your soap will be ready for you to use and enjoy! Check out all the rest of our free recipes and classes and watch out for more Enlightened by Layla!
