Country Bumpkin Fragrance OilCountry Bumpkin Fragrance Oil– Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Country Bumpkin Fragrance Oil is not only a Nature’s Garden original scent, but it’s a bestseller as well! Which makes a lot of  sense, because this delicious fragrance is decadent enough to get my mouth watering. It has me wishing for the taste of those warm apples fresh from the orchard and smothered in warm, gooey goodness in a place where nothing matters, but good times, great food, and a beautiful scenery.

What Does Country Bumpkin Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a wonderful complex blend of apples, candied yams, marshmallows, sweet cream butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, crushed cinnamon bark and fresh cloves.  Bring the country home to you.  An NG Original!  A Best Seller!

Top Notes: apples
Mid Notes:  candied yams, cinnamon bark, clove, nutmeg
Base Notes:  marshmallow, sweet cream butter, brown sugar

How Do Our Customers Use Country Bumpkin Fragrance Oil?

Candle crafters can use up to 10% in either vegetable of paraffin wax. This fragrance has shown to perform perfectly in joy wax and wow wax. Also, it is nice and strong in soy wax. For this scent we suggest using four drops of orange plus one drop of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of an orange color block and brown color block into your melted wax. Make sure not to use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Room scenters can include up to 50% of this fragrance oil in potpourri and incense. Also, this scent is nice and strong in aroma beads. However, gel wax is not compatible with this scent.

If you intend to create bath and body products, then please note that the body safe percentage is lower for our Country Bumpkin fragrance oil. Bath gels, bath oils, and lotions can have a maximum of 0.05% to be considered body safe. Perfumes have performed perfectly with 0.05% of this fragrance. Also, cleaners can be created using the body safe percentage of 0.05%.

Homemade soap crafters can also use 0.05% at the absolute most. Although you are able to incorporate 0.05% of this fragrance into cold process soap, we did not test this fragrance due to its low body safe percentage. Since this fragrance is so popular, I’d like to mention that just because we didn’t test this bar doesn’t mean you can’t use this spicy scent if you enjoy it. You may want to do a test batch before you commit to a large batch to make sure the bar turns out right for you. We are unsure whether this bar would discolor. If the 1% vanillin content does discolor the bar at all, then you can try to use vanilla white stabilizer to counter act its effect. We recommend using orange soap colorant and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products as they are not body safe.

So, why not take a little break to make yourself something great and indulge in a delectable scent?

Fragrance Oil and Candle Making

This entry was posted in bath and body, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, fragrance oil, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

fragrance oilWhen it comes to candle making, in order to have the best smelling candles, you must use concentrated fragrance oil.  There are a vast number of fragrance oil companies in the market, many of them sell good quality oils for candle making, and on the other hand there are some companies that sell lower cost fragrances which are usually diluted.  Never use any fragrance oils that are alcohol based for candle making.  Caution- there are companies that sell “potpourri fragrance oils”, these fragrance oils are about 50% concentrated.  They are cut with a product called DPG.  DPG (or dipropylene glycol) is used to dilute fragrance oils.  Do not use these types of fragrance oils for candle making, they will inhibit your candles from burning properly.

Once you have found a company that sells concentrated fragrance oils, you will only want to use 1 ounce to 1.5 ounces of candle scent per pound of wax.  As long as you have selected the right kind of wax- a high quality one- you will never need to use more than 1.5 ounces of candle scent per pound of wax.  Using more than the stated amount of fragrance oil in your candle wax will result in unused fragrance in the bottom of your pouring pot or candle container.  This is wasted fragrance oil that was not absorbed by your wax.

Natures Garden supplies 100% concentrated fragrance oils to its customers.  These scents were formulated by master perfumists, using aromatic chemicals and essential oils to create wonderfully smelling fragrances that can be used to make candles.  In fact, about 99% of Natures Garden’s fragrance oils also work in other applications besides candles.  This includes:  cosmetics, bath and body products, and even cold process soap.  Natures Garden is dedicated to providing its customers with unique, fine, fragrance oils at wholesale prices not retail prices.  Our company is able to sell these high quality oils at great prices because we are the largest supplier of fragrance oils in the USA, which has allowed us to achieve bulk buying power from our perfumists.  And then, we pass the savings on to our customers.  Our high quality, affordable-priced fragrance oils allow our customers to maintain high profit margins on their finished products.

Chemistry of Fragrance

Essential oils are 100% natural (usually plant derived).  These scenting oils are commonly attained by a process known as steam distillation.  Essential oils are very costly as compared to fragrance oils.  Fragrance oils came into existence because of these high costs.  Perfumists started replicating the aroma of certain essential oils by mixing the right combinations of over 3,000 various aromatic chemicals.  These aromatic chemicals are known as aldehydes and ketones.  Aldehydes and ketones are all polar to some degree.  It is actually impossible for fragrance oils to be NON Polar.  Every fragrance oil has some degree of polarity to them.  Yes, it is true that some fragrance oils will be more polar than others, but a fragrance oil can never be completely NON Polar.  Perfumists are able to create a fragrance oil that is less polar by using isopar solvents, but once again, there will still be a small degree of polarity from the aromatic chemicals used to form the fragrance oil.

Fragrance oils that are used to scent gel wax have to be on the lesser side of being polar.  A great tip for testing if a fragrance oil will work in gel wax is to first check the flashpoint.  The flashpoint of the oil has to be above 170 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, see if the fragrance oil will mix in mineral oil, if the solution becomes cloudy, the fragrance oil will not work.  If the solution is clear, the fragrance oil is gel wax compatible.

MSDS/IFRA/RIFM

We at Natures Garden want to keep you informed on every single fragrance oil we carry.  All of the fragrance oils sold by Natures Garden abide by the safety recommendations set forth by the IFRA and RIFM standards.  Natures Garden also supplies the MSDS information for each and every fragrance oil as well.  The MSDS and IFRA Certification of Compliance can be found on the website, under the fragrance performance- testing in various applications section.  Each MSDS and IFRA certificate can be easily printed right off the Natures Garden website.  EU customers are now provided EU allergen reports for all of our fragrances.
