Letting Others Do Nice Things For You

help

Mike’s sister came in from Oklahoma for a visit, and it was so nice seeing her and meeting her new boyfriend.  Every time Lynette comes to town, I sit for hours talking with her.  She is such a positive, fun person; she is your quintessential “people magnet”.   Her boyfriend, Bruce, is a down-to-earth, yet very successful, intelligent man who said something that really got me thinking.

Bruce said, “You should let people do nice things for you”.  I thought about this statement intensely.  How many people in my life have offered to pay for things, or do things for me and I have said, “No…let me get it”, or “No…let me pay for it”.   I always thought that I was being courteous by doing so, but was I stealing other people’s joy by doing so?  According to Bruce, “It makes others feel good to do things for others, and you shouldn’t steal that joy from them”.   You know what?  Bruce is right!

The next time someone wants to do something nice for you, don’t reply by saying “NO”.  Reply by saying, “That is so very thoughtful of you, thank you for being so kind to me”.

Have a Flaming Awesome Day!!

So, without further adieu; the results have been tallied and here are the most popular fragrance oils at Natures Garden Candle and Soap Supply.

 

pink sugar  fragrance oil#1  Pink Sugar Fragrance Oil      A Best Seller!  Natures Garden’s rendition of Pink Sugar Type. A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam on a dry down of musks.

  What Customers Have To Say: 

“I love this.  We make whipped body butters & whipped sugar scrubs & a customer asked if we could make a butter/scrub in Pink Sugar & I am so happy I picked to order this scent from NG because it is my new favorite!!  The customer that asked for the scent brought me over the Real Pink Sugar perfume & we could not tell the difference.  Great job NG it’s right on!!  Order the biggest bottle guys :)”

“This fragrance is awesome in my candles!  Customers love it with its sweet, cotton candy, warm, subtle aroma.  It has a great hot and cold throw and is a dead on dupe of Aqualina’s Pink Sugar.”

 

black raspberry vanilla fragrance oil
#2  Black Raspberry & Vanilla Fragrance Oil 
    A Best Seller!  An enticing blend of blackberries and raspberries, with middle notes of white floral greenery, and bottom notes of musk and vanilla.  Highly requested fragrance!

  What Customers Have To Say:

“This fragrance is amazing!  It is super easy to CP and the scent just keeps going.  Men and women both like it.”

“This scent smelled so good out of the bottle that I had to use it first.  I make soy wax candles, but this scent alone has me thinking… I pretty much want EVERYTHING to smell like this fragrance.  It’s soft and strong and has a luxurious quality to it.  The scent throw is great in soy wax but like I said, I would expand on it a bit more. It smells like it belongs in perfumes or lotions or soaps.”

bite me fragrance oil
#3  Bite Me Fragrance Oil
   An NG Original Fragrance!  Dracula would fall in love with this fragrance! Fresh citrus notes of lime and orange sparkle with effervescent highlights as they lead to a luscious blend of berry and cherry in this playful scent. Leafy green accents add intensity as a base of vanilla creates sweet tones for the fragrance.

  What Customers Have To Say:

“This scent is fabulous.  I love the little extra “bite” it has to it.  So hard to find a cherry-strong scent that doesn’t smell like medicine.  But Whoa, this scent is take-your-breath-away fantastic.  Works fantastic in everything I have tried it in – lotions, spritz, perfume, tarts.  One of my all time favorites!”

“I took this soap to a party last weekend and passed it around to see if others could “name that smell”. The consensus was “Smarties”! It has a lip lickin” sweetness to it that is dead on to how smarties or sweet tarts smell. This soap immediately sold old.”


df-701#4  Loving Spell Fragrance Oil
     A Best Seller! An absolutely tantalizing fragrance composed of sweet bouquet of mandarin orange, bergamot, and tangerine enhanced by hints of fresh peaches, strawberries, and raspberries on an undertone of white musk. Imaginative and very complex! Compare NG Loving Spell Type fragrance to VS Love Spell.  Natures Garden is in no way affiliated with VS.  Our fragrance is not identical, just similar.

  What Customers Have To Say:

“This smells just like V.S love spell.  Best seller in our whipped body butters & whipped sugar scrubs.  I use to be a customer best customer @ V.S but now Ill never go back!!  Thanks to NG for making a dead on Love Spell FO.  I only wish I knew much, much sooner…Order huge one!!

“I bought this FO for a customer request and she was thrilled! I am not familiar with VS Love Spell, but my customer told me my candles smelled dead-on! She even motioned for her husband to walk over and she held the candle up to his nose (making sure to cover the label so he couldn’t read what fragrance it was) and asked him what it smelled like, and his response was…”Love Spell, my favorite!”

dragons blood fragrance oil
#5  Dragon’s Blood
Fragrance Oil    A Best Seller!  Smells just like the essential oil. Dragon’s blood truly has a smell all its own.

  What Customers Have To Say:

“This is one of the best dragon’s blood scents I have ever smelled in my life! It’s outstanding and very true to its scent! It holds up amazingly in candles (soon to be testing it in CP soap)! I love love LOVE this scent!”

“I made CP soap with this and it was perfect.  I was able to do swirling and multiple colors with ease.  The scent is out of this world amazing.  It is a warm smell with a sweet tinge to it and an air of incense and heady musk.  I liked it so much that I used some in my oil burner too and the house smelled awesome.  A little goes a long way!”

 

The next 5 fragrance oils all tied to fill the top 10 customer favorite fragrance oils.  They are in no particular order.

df-7772Lemon Sugar Fragrance Oil     A Fresh Duplication.  Remember the taste of childhood lemonhead candy? This fragrance takes it up a notch with citrus top notes of real lemon, and warm base notes of vanilla and sugar.

  What Customers Have To Say:

“The lemon in this fragrance really pops!  It behaves very well in CP (did leopard spots with it!), with a very bright and happy fragrance.”

“This scent smells great in every base. A variety of age group customers like this scent. Smells great in Melt and pour bases.”

fresh brewed coffee
Fresh Brewed Coffee Fragrance Oil  
  A Best Seller!  The aroma of strong black fresh brewed Arabica coffee beans. This is our original fresh brewed coffee fragrance.  Coffee fragrances do have base notes of vanilla in them, which may smell somewhat chocolately.

What Customers Have To Say:

“This fragrance smells just like coffee. I got it for my husband who LOVES coffee, and kept after me to make a coffee scented candle. I’m not a coffee drinker myself, so it’s not my favorite scent, but it DOES smell just like the coffee he makes EVERY morning! If you are a coffee lover, this is for you.”

“Great seller for me. Sticks in CP, not strong OOB though. Scent really comes out as it cures.”

 

green apple explosion
Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil     An NG Original Fragrance!  We believe we have quite possibly found the “spunkiest” green apple fragrance on earth!  We thought about calling it Granny Smith Apple, but this fragrance deserves a name that “pops” just like its aroma.  Thus, may we present:  Green Apple Explosion! Fragrance.

What Customers Have To Say:

“I had a customer asking for a green apple candle and boy was she beyond pleased with this one. The throw in the soy has been great hot and cold. This is one that I must keep at all times.”

“This is absolutely one of my favs! A top seller for kids soaps as well as melts. This scent is tart but a bit sweet too! Very strong. I will never be without this scent in my inventory! So glad I found it. NEVER GET RID OF THIS SCENT NG !!!”

monkey farts fragrance oil
Monkey Farts Fragrance  
A Best Seller!
 
Oh what a treat! We know you are expecting to read a disgusting description, but this unique complex fragrance is anything but disgusting! This unique fragrance begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, juicy bubblegum, and strawberries; and a hint of vanilla as a base note. Sure to attract new customers!

What Customers Have To Say:

“This is easily the most popular scent of everything I have. It’s requested frequently as much for the name as the scent! The fragrance is bubblegum banana fruity fun and is nice and strong in MP soap, lotion, scrubs, and in soy wax tarts. Great all around scent and a wonderful soap/product to have at a show. Just watch the people giggle and whisper when they notice the name. ;)”

“My #1 all time seller. A+++ in, bubble bars, CP soap, Bath salts, Bath bombs..EVERYTHING. I can’t keep it in stock, no really. Soaps like a dream, scent sticks, easy to color, stays nice and light in color. Even the guy’s love this one. JUST PERFECTION ALL THE WAY. THANK YOU N.G.!”

Homemade Soap No More Allergies

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

smelly cat menagerie

I am Victoria Cangelosi, and I’m the owner and SoapMaster-in-Chief of Smelly Cat Soaps.
I am allergic to soap – or so I thought for the first twenty-something years of my life. I would break out in a terrible rash each time I used soap, even the hypoallergenic stuff. I subsisted on exactly one brand of rather boring body wash I found that didn’t cause breakouts like the others.

But each time I entered shops like Lush or Bath and Body Works, I found myself entranced by all the delicious smells. It was a cruel, cruel existence.

One day, I came across a soap mold for sale online that I fell in love with. I was so inspired that I decided I was going buy it and try my hand at making soap. How hard could it be?

At first, my only goal was to create soap that I could use without getting a rash. Much to my delight, I quickly found success. It turns out I am not allergic to soap after all! What I’m allergic to is the preservative that soap companies add to their soaps to prolong their shelf lives.

I shared my newfound love for soapmaking with my family and friends, and showed them what I had made. Several high pitched Ohmygoshes and Thatsadorables later, I realized I may be onto something. I already had one shop on Etsy; I make jewelry and sell it over at www.CrowCanyonJewelry.com. I opened a second shop just for selling the soap, and decided to take custom orders instead of pre-making soap and listing it for sale. It seemed less risky; I didn’t have to buy supplies or make anything until I received an order. And I don’t add any preservatives to my soap.

The name Smelly Cat Soaps is homage to one of my all time favorite television shows, “Friends.” I love when I am selling soap at craft shows and people read my shop name, smile, then start to sing the Smelly Cat song a la Phoebe Buffay. I also love to hear the squeals of excited children as they proudly yell the names of all the little soap animals I have out on my table. “Mommy look, it’s a hedgehog! Mommy Mommy, an elephant! Mommy, she has turtles and puppies” etc.

I am enjoying this business and I love being my own boss. I get to be as creative as I want, and that is AWESOME! I don’t have to answer to anyone but my customers, so if I want to get crazy silly and fun in my automatic “Thanks for your order” message, (hint – it is actually pretty hilarious) there’s no one to tell me I can’t!

Right now, this is just a small business I do on the side. But I believe my soap has the potential to really take off. I love helping customers make bath time fun for their kids, create the perfect gift, or order truly unique wedding or shower favors. Please keep me in mind for all your future soaping needs.

I use a lot of Natures Garden scents in my soaps. You can’t smell them from here, but the soaps in the picture are:

- In the Mood fragrance oil

- Misbehavin fragrance oil

- I’m Too Sexy fragrance oil

- Princess type fragrance oil

- Cashmere type fragrance oil

How to Work Candy to Your Advantage

Thursday, July 11th, 2013
z-222

Natures Garden’s Bogeyman Fragrance Oil is a great candy scent to add to your line. How sweet your products can be has never smelled to good!

How to Work Candy to Your Advantage

Earlier this year in April, I took a blind leap into technology by upgrading my flip phone to an Android.  I know; I am little behind the times.  However, after weighing the pros and cons of a dreaded touch screen phone, I thought it was a move that I could benefit greatly from.  Overall, the fact that pushed me into the purchase was that I could have a mini, hand held computer; an endless source of knowledge and entertainment; taking it anywhere and everywhere, and you mean to tell me it works as a cell phone too.  How could this ever be a bad thing?

Luckily for me, I did not have to discover all of the possibilities and capabilities of my Android flying solo.  My youngest sister who is only 20 years old gave me a phenomenal crash course in phone technology.  An android is so yesterday for her, she lives in the realm of iPhone and iPad; often functioning from both at the same time.  This however, is a little too much for me!

For the first several weeks with my Android, our bonding was so very special, I was in love and memorized.  Every free second I had, I was discovering new and wonderful things.  For the first time I was finding the wonderful world of apps.  These amazing little square buttons on my screen that allowed me access to all my favorite websites.  All at my beckoning call with a simple touch of a finger.  It was not too much longer before one of these apps became my demise.

Usually, I am not one of the followers.  But, I had heard about this addicting game on the radio, and seen several commercials on television for the same game “Candy Crush Saga”.  I was intrigued.  So, I took the next logical step, and downloaded the free app.

Once I had my little kiddies tucked tight into their beds, I hung up my mom hat and decided that I would see what all of the fuss is about.  During the first several levels, I couldn’t grasp what was so addicting about this simple little game.  Match 3 candies… I could do this in my sleep.  But, this is where the game gets you.  It is a very simple logical game that gets progressively harder using innocent little candies as a front.  As the levels and challenges increase you find yourself saying, “I can do this, I can beat these candies,” but in actuality, the levels are endless and your free time is not.

Candy Crush Saga has absorbed the vast majority of my “me time”.  I think about it, dream of the little candies, and crave the passing of just one more level.  I know that I am not the only one who has become an addict and this does provide me some comfort in the situation.  In fact, the Wall Street Journal reported some 15.4 million users a day for “Candy Crush Saga”, and those numbers really got me thinking.

The result, turn the proverbial sour lemon candy into sweet delicious candy.  With 15.4 million users a day, candy is running through many consumers’ heads… so why not give the people what they want.

Here are some spectacularly sweet candy themed fragrance oils and items available at Natures Garden.  Use these fragrance oils and to sweeten the scent of your bath products, or maybe add some sweet embeds to your candles and soaps.  Just take the idea and run with it!

What are Classic Summer Scents

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

fragrances at the fair

What are some Classic Summer Scents?

So, yes it is true… summertime is here.  Well, I guess that technically you can say that summer has officially been here for about 3 weeks, however, my mind is just now registering summer!  So, what does this mean?  Well, for me this means having an endless supply of popsicles in my freezer, tons of extra band aids for my 5 year old who is learning to ride her bike without training wheels, and bug spray, citronella candles, and a fly swatter on my mom made tool belt… all ready at a second’s notice.  To my kids though, summertime means one thing: Fair time!

Can’t you just see it in your mind; the glowing neon lights of the amusement rides, the endless masses of people crowding the walkways, the hurried parents chasing their little ones as they squeal and shriek at all of the excitement taking place all around them.  But more than any of this, the one thing that stands out in my memory is the aroma.  And, I am not talking about the livestock barns here; I am talking fair foods.

Just intoxicating… the thought alone brings a huge gaping smile to my face.  So, in preparation of the wondrous yearly celebrated event of an American Summer Pastime, here are Natures Garden’s Fair Time Fragrance Oils!

Fragrance Trends Fall 2013

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

300x300-trends-reportFragrance Trends Fall 2013

In order to help our customers create marketing promotions for upcoming seasons, the staff at Natures Garden has completed a 2013 Fragrance Trend Report.  In this trend report, we also mention the color trends and fashion trends that will be hot for Fall/Winter 2013/2014.  Both research and intuition went into this report; allowing us to report how the moods of society will shape the upcoming trends.

Once we realized what the upcoming trends would be, we worked diligently with our perfumist to design fragrances that reflected those up-coming trends.  We would like to thank our perfumist for creating these scents multiple times for us to get exactly what we were looking for.  Once these new fragrances were created, tested, and approved, our graphic artist designed the trends report and fragrance graphics to make these trends “come alive”.   We expect delivery of these new Trend Scents the week of July 8th.  

Without further adieu….Our Fragrance Trends Report for Fall 2013.  Go to the fragrance trends report to print out this entire report.

Trends are developed from socio-economic stimuli  and world events that we as a society encounter.  Colors, fashion, design, and fragrance are all influenced by how we see the world around us.  While there are several trends that we will highlight in this report, the driving trend behind all of them is what we call “Free Spirited vs. Deeply Rooted”.  This trend represents a division that is taking place between those in society who are embracing fast change, and those who are reverting back to a grass-roots mentality that would like to change things back to how they were many years ago.  Change is the key word here.

Fall & Winter are seasons which embrace more intense, full-bodied, heavier fragrances that provide a sense of serenity and warmth during cold months.  The key for 2013/14 is the combination of fragrance ingredients used to create new and intriguing experiences rooted in the familiar; or use of unexpected varietals not often used.

trend colors fall 2013In addition to fragrance trends, color trends are also influenced by socio-economic factors and world events.  The colors on this page are the color trends for fall & winter 2013/2014.  Interestingly enough, 4 of the 13 color trends are colors found in camouflage; leading us to believe that there is a down-home country trend on the horizon.  Pantone has stated that Emerald Green is the main color of Fall 2013.

Hot fashion trends are turtlenecks,  clutch purses, slouchy pants that are narrowed at the ankle and sit high on the waist, rounded shoulders, and gold/copper begin to replace silver as the metallic of choice.

 

 

 

Trend #1-  Lighthearted Fun & Folly:  A new spin on positive emotions and whimsy. The idea of lighthearted fun, madness and total enjoyment of life and all it has to offer.  Fragrance notes associated with this trend are red berries and plums with rich, warm, heavy notes; peppermint swirls with marshmallow fluff, and multi-colored ribbon candy.

peppermint-fluff1Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil (awaiting delivery):  A fun, fluffy aroma that embraces lightheartedness and femininity all in one!  A fabulous blend of fresh essential oil of peppermint and huckleberries, hints of violet and white florals, with creamy base notes of vanilla marshmallow.

Top:  Peppermint, Huckleberries, Apricot, Strawberries
Mid: Peach, Violet, White Lily
Base:  Vanilla, Sandalwood, Marshmallow

dance-of-the-sugar-plum-fairy1Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil (available for sale on site):  A charming fragrance filled with surprises to delight all of the senses with plums, dark cherries and sweet oranges enhanced with peppery woody undertones.

Monkey Farts fragrance oil is a best-selling fragrance oil at Natures Garden.

Monkey Farts Fragrance Oil-Fragrance Oil Spotlight

It is summertime, and what tried-and-true fragrance oil screams “Summer fun” better than Monkey Farts Fragrance Oil? At first glance, you may feel like uttering the phrase, ” YUCK, SICK, GROSS”. But let me assure you, Monkey Farts fragrance oil is far from a nauseating aroma. In fact, Monkey Farts has been a best-selling fragrance oil at Natures Garden for many many years. Not only do adults love it, it happens to be a super popular fragrance oil with little kids.

What does Monkey Farts Fragrance Oil smell like?

This unique fragrance begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, juicy bubblegum, and strawberries; and a hint of vanilla as a base note. Let’s put it this way: The name attracts new customers, and the scent makes it a best seller.

How do our customers use our Monkey Farts Fragrance Oil?

Most of our clientele are candle makers, so many of our customers use this scent to make container candles, pillar candles, and candle tarts. A growing number of soap makers are using Natures Garden fragrance oils in their melt and pour soaps, cold process soaps, and hot process soaps. How does Monkey Farts Fragrance Oil perform in CP soap? The results reported back to us by our soap tester: Slight ricing, stick blend, no acceleration, discolors to beige. However, some customers (who likely used a different soap recipe) report that they have no ricing in their CP soap. Regardless, it is still one of our best-selling scents for soap making.

Monkey Farts fragrance oil is used by many customers to make lotions, creams, body butters, bath bombs. Our staff even used this fragrance to make Monkey Farts scented markers and scented glitterized high heel shoes. We seriously have too much fun at Natures Garden; it should be a sin to have this much fun!

In closing, I might add that the name Monkey Farts is not for everyone. Many of our customers rename it to things like: Monkey Toots, Funky Monkey, Chunky Monkey. Whether you place the name Monkey Farts on your product labels, that is your call. One things is for certain: Your customers will love the smell!

Favorite Fragrance Notes

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

fragrance-oilsWhat is your favorite fragrance note?

This is the question we posted on facebook,  paid to have it blasted to over 84,000 people, and boy did we get a huge response!  In order to answer the question correctly, you need to know what a “fragrance note” is.  So, what is a fragrance note?  A fragrance note is a single aroma found in a fragrance.   Examples of single fragrance notes are: vanilla, lime, orange, grapefruit, rose, cedar, musk, hyacinth; you get the picture.  A fragrance is a combination of top, middle, and base notes.  The top notes of a fragrance oil are what you smell first, middle notes are smelled next, and finally base notes are smelled last.

What were the most popular, favorite fragrance notes of the people polled on our facebook page?

Before we blogged about the results of the favorite fragrance notes poll, we had to remove the “fragrances” from the polled list since those are not single fragrance notes.  Hope everyone understands why we had to do that.  Like mentioned before, a fragrance is a combination of fragrant notes, not a single note.

Here are the results of this question asked on our facebook page:  What is your personal favorite fragrance “note”?  If you don’t see your favorite note listed, please add to the list.
