Cupid is Coming…

 

As we all know Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It is a day meant to be filled with love and appreciation for one another. Typically, this is considered a lovers holiday. This very special day is filled with flowers, chocolates, cards, and romantic evenings. So, since we are all business minded, it goes without saying that we are all super busy making our loved themed products in preparation for this big occasion.

 

This is our time to shine.

 

No one knows the female market better than we do.  We also know that many men shop for this day last minute with little to no thought behind their purchases.  So, let’s take these two factors, and solve the problem.

 

What do women want?  This question has plagued man since the beginning of time.  We are such wonderfully complex beings; it is hard for men to understand.   I know that I do not have to elaborate on this topic.  To make a quick generalization, we want everything and nothing at the same time.  It is this very tangled web that men cannot grasp.  But hey, there is nothing sexier than a little mystery.  Women know this.

 

So, how do we correlate this into a suitable gift?  Well, as they say, “You can lead a horse to water…”

 

If you have read any of my earlier posts, you know that I am a huge homemade gift basket advocator.  If you haven’t, you do now.  I’ve done a little research and coupled that with some out of the box thinking to come up with some unique ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts.  My main objective when compiling this list was to take the uncertainty out of present purchasing for men, while still satisfying the wants of women.

 

Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts:

Now he can have everything he needs to show her he cares, with very little thinking involved!

 

  1. A “Snuggle and Cuddle Basket” containing a handmade fleece tie blanket, romantic movie, microwave popcorn, and candles or tea lights scented with Endlessly in Love fragrance.  Perfect for a night in together.
  2. A “Dinner is on Me Basket” containing all of the items and ingredients to make a delicious meal.  Along with these items, include two pillar candles scented with Aphrodisiac to set the mood.  Now, he can cook like a pro.  A little FYI for everyone:  According to my research, the most loved and appreciated gift that men did for women on Valentine’s Day last year was cook them a dinner for a romantic evening in.  By selling a basket with all of the items that a man would need to make dinner, not only are you providing a one stop shop, but you are also preventing them from having to go to no man’s land… aka the supermarket.
  3. A “Bath time Butler Basket” containing soap, Ritzy bath gel, and soap dipped rose petals all scented in Magic Potion.  Don’t forget to add the sponge, or loofah.  Everything he needs to give her a relaxing bubble bath.
  4.  An “Undying Love Vase” filled with aroma buds scented with NG Beautiful Type.  Unlike the 200 million stems of roses that will be sold near Valentine’s Day, her roses won’t be expiring any time soon.
  5. A “Capture our Love Basket” including a disposable camera, 3 x 5 photo album, love stickers, and red and black sharpie markers.  This way, whatever way they choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, he can give her the memories to keep forever.

 

These are some really great basket ideas for increasing your sales as we approach the anticipated Love Day.

 

Remember…Love can mean many different things to many different people.  As always, there are various factors that feed into this equation too.  The most important thing to remember is feeling special and loved on Valentine’s Day is great, but feeling special and loved the other 364 days of the year is one gift that is in everybody’s price range and doesn’t need a gift receipt.

 

Fragrance & Fun for Everyone

 

Inspire, Create, and Dominate!

 

Sparkles!!! Nicole

VALENTINE’S DAY BOUQUET

A fragrant assortment of soap on a stick, aroma buds, and aroma bead ornaments on a stick.

INGREDIENTS:
Aroma Buds (2 dozen total)
Aroma Beads (2 lbs)
Natural Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap
Diamond Dust Mica Pigment
Red Liquid Candle Dye
Neon Pink FUN Liquid Soap Colorant
Victorian Heart Soap Mold
NG Angel Type Fragrance Oil
Fresh Cut Roses Fragrance Oil
Dare to be Sexy Fragrance Oil
Transfer Pipettes
Glass Vase
Kabob Skewers
Babies Breath
Heart Shaped and Cupid Cookie Cutters
Metal Baking sheet that you do not plan to cook food on again
Large Glass Pyrex Measuring Cup with spout
Ribbon for Decorating
Small Paint brush for applying mica pigment

1. Prepare the Aroma Bead Ornaments:
A. Pour ¼ cup Angel Type fragrance oil into the Ziploc bag. Add 3 drops of Red Liquid Spectrum Candle dye. Never use food coloring or soap dyes to color aroma beads. Seal the bag. Gently shake.
B. Pour 1 cup Aroma Beads into the Ziploc bag. You will want to shake the bag until all of the liquid is evenly dispersed among all of the beads. Allow aroma beads to thoroughly absorb fragrance oil (this may take days). Add a
pinch of Diamond Dust mica pigment. This will make your heart ornaments look like rubies.
C. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
D. Place 6-7 metal cookie cutters (hearts and cupid) on the cookie sheet.  Take the prepared aroma beads and carefully fill each cookie cutter approximately 1/4 inch. You will want to spread your prepared aroma beads evenly throughout the cookie cutter.
E. If you would like to have a hole in your air fresheners (for hanging purposes), you will need to use screws/nails. Place a ¼ inch diameter screw/nail head-down in the spot where you want the hole to be located. Leave the
screw/nail in during the whole cooking process.
F. Bake aroma beads in oven for about 5-6 minutes (or until the beads have melted together). It is normal to experience some smoking.
G. When the beads are melted together, remove the cookie sheet from the oven.
H. Allow the air fresheners to cool. Remove the cookie cutter and screw/nail from the air freshener.
I. Carefully peel the air freshener off of the cookie sheet.
J. Poke the pointy end of a kabob skewer into the base of each ready made ornament.
2. Prepare the Aroma Buds:
A. Using a transfer pipette, place 2-3 drops of fresh cut roses fragrance oil on the very tips of the aroma buds. Do not spray aroma buds, and do not place fragrance oil close to the base of the bud, or the petals may fall off.
3. Prepare Victorian Heart Soaps on a Stick:
A. Each block of Natures Garden Natural Goat’s Melt and Pour Soap is perforated into 40 cubes. Each cube is approximately 1 oz. Melt a total of 15 cubes of soap in microwave. Heat the base for 30 seconds at a time until it is
completely melted.
B. Once soap is completely melted, add 4 drops of Neon Pink FUN liquid soap color, plus 1 Tablespoon Dare to Be Sexy Fragrance Oil. Stir.
C. Pour mixture into Victorian heart soap molds. Spritz with some alcohol to remove any air bubbles. We allow our soap to set up in the refrigerator or freezer so that it releases more easily from the molds.
D. Once soap is set up, pop out of molds.
E. Using a small paint brush, apply a small amount of diamond dust mica pigment to the detailed areas of the soap. This will give the soap some bling bling!
F. Poke pointy end of kabob skewer into the base of each of these soaps.
4. Add some unscented aroma beads to your vase before adding your arrangement parts.

Add your aroma buds, aroma bead ornaments on sticks, babies breath, and scented soap on sticks to the vase. Decorate vase by adding a bow.

NG Original Scent!  Natures Garden Glitter Fragrance-  During my life, I have had the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the most talented, creative minds in the world.  From world renowned perfumist, to incredibly amazing artists, my life has been truly enriched by knowing these wonderful people!  Glitter fragrance was carefully, and artistically created for an artist with whom I have had the greatest pleasure of working.  I chose the name Glitter for the fragrance because her name is Afshan, which means glitter.  It was tremendously important for the fragrance to  embrace Afshan’s personality.  Afshan is not only talented, she is also confident, attractive, and she radiates with overwhelming joy.  So, without further ado, we’d like to introduce….Glitter Fragrance. Natures Garden’s Glitter fragrance is a feminine, yet confident and alluring aroma combining sheer floral notes of iris, jasmine, water lily, orchid, and white rose, with clean, fresh top notes of neroili and pink grapefruit blossoms and sexy bottom notes of sandalwood, soft musk, and tonka bean.

Natures Garden’s Honey Vanilla Love Dust Fragrance Oil:  An incredibly sexy aroma of raw honey, cocoa butter, and chocolate.

A blooming rose accord balances with hints of lily, while patchouli warms the floral tones. Precious amber, warm woody notes and soft musky vanilla surround the bouquet, Paparazzi style.  Roll out the red carpet, this dramatic fragrance is an Academy Award Winner!

Natures Garden’s Aqua di Gio Type fragrance oil:  After testing numerous lower cost versions of this scent, and not being satisfied, we told our perfumist to work his magic with this scent; we would pay whatever we had to pay for this sexy duplication.  Mike and my sons all wear this scent; so my house is filled with this aroma daily.  I am happy to say that our perfumist deserves a standing ovation on his work!  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.

Natures Garden Sinfully Hot Fragrance Oil: An NG Original Fragrance!  This potent spicy bouquet comes from the dried branches & twigs of the cassia tree. A strong cinnamon bark blend is followed by warm wood and sweet amber to create the ultimate spice scent.

NG Original Scent!  Natures Garden Toxic Trance Fragrance Oil-  When we asked our perfumist to create some new Halloween/Gothic scents for us, he created a sexy scent that he referred to as “Intoxicating Edward”.  We love the Twilight series, and we were simply amazed at how well the perfumist captured the charming charisma of Edward in this fragrance;  his alluring eyes, his flawless, metrosexual appearance, and even the way he glistened like gold when we was in the sun.  However, we chose to give this fragrance a name that lasted beyond the Twilight phenomena; thus we renamed this fragrance “Toxic Trance”.  Natures Garden’s Toxic Trance fragrance is a unisex, incredibly sexy fragrance which begins with top notes of green citrus notes, mellowed out with powdery floral notes that appear to glisten.  The middle of the fragrance involves the infusion of neroli, violet, and herbs, with a bottom of powdery floral musk.

An NG Original Fragrance!  Natures Garden Vanilla Valentine Fragrance Oil:  This sweetheart fragrance is a perfect blend of creamed vanilla bean and sensual musk to stimulate the senses and arouse your passion for sweetness.
