Caitlyn and I wanted to do something different than all of the other seniors and Nature’s Garden seemed like a perfect place to shadow. The first day was the hardest because we didn’t know what to expect but once we got to the store the staff was so friendly and upbeat.

Tropical Drink ScentPina Colada Fragrance Oil– Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The name Pina Colada actually means “strained pineapple.”  Ricardo Gracia holds the first claim to inventing this fruity cocktail.  In the process of perfecting his drink first called Coco Loco which consisted of coconut milk, rum, and coconut cream, he ran into an issue.  Due to the fact that his drink was served inside a half a coconut, when the coconut supply was hit with a union strike, Ricardo decided to improvise.  He used a hollowed out pineapple instead.  The mixture of all these flavors topped off with the sweet acidic pineapple was a huge hit, and hence the Pina Colada was born.  Natures Garden has captured the essence of the famous Pina Colada in this tropical drink scent.  A grand mixture of the classic tropical aromas including coconuts and pineapples, it absolutely smells phenomenal in finished products.  And, this scent will surely leave your customers salivating.
