Please Vote for Natures Garden

natures gardenPlease take the time to vote for Natures Garden for FEDEX Small Business Grant!

We entered this contest last year, but when we found out that others in our industry entered, we decided not to ask for votes.  This year, we decided….Let’s Go For it….so we are asking for your help!

You can vote one time per day through February 23!

We were asked the following questions by FEDEX in order to enter their contest:

1.  If you could quickly summarize your business, how would you describe it?  Natures Garden builds lasting relationships with our customers by supplying high quality, affordable, candle, soap, and cosmetic supplies.

2.  What inspired you to get into the business you are in today?  We began making and selling candles to supplement our family income. We noticed during that time that the needs of candle makers were not being fully satisfied by the companies that sold candle making supplies. We started selling supplies to candle makers because the industry needed a company who was dedicated to providing free classes and recipes, offering high quality products at affordable prices, ensuring fast shipping, and promoting a “win-win” relationship with customers.

3.  How do you define success for yourself and for your business?  Success in business is a concerted effort of a winning “team” of individuals who are passionate about fully satisfying the needs of their customers; going above and beyond customer expectations. Success should never be about the owner of the company. Success comes when you know your collective team is making your customers happy. The best rewards that a company owner can receive is the praise of a happy staff, and most importantly, the praise of happy customers.

4.  How would you use the FedEx SMB Grant money to make a significant impact on your business and/or on others?  Natures Garden team works very hard to provide high quality products at affordable prices to our customers who in turn make and sell finished candles, soaps, and cosmetics. We currently offer free online classes and recipes that help our customers expand their product lines. Currently, those classes are in pdf format on our website. We would love to be able to build a room at Natures Garden that allowed us to begin shooting videos for our customers, and that allowed us to hold on-site classes.

Thank you for helping us!!  We sincerely appreciate your vote!!

Natural Spider Deterrents


This entry was posted in all natural, creative, essential oils, Fragrance Oils, herb, herbs, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Essential Oils and tagged , , , , , , on by .
House Spider

Let me be honest with you, I do not like uninvited guests residing in my home. This is particularly true when it comes to insects but even more specifically spiders.

Natural Spider Deterrents- Make your Own

I know that the species of spiders is very beneficial for the world.  The majority of spiders are harmless.  They eat tons of insects.  In fact they are the most dominant predators on the planet, and do a great job at keeping the insect population under control.

Their webbing that they spin is one of the strongest materials in existence.  This webbing or silk even bets out Kevlar (the material in bullet proof vests) in strength.   Researchers and Scientists are still trying to replicate the spider’s silk on a molecular level in hopes of being able to recreate it for huge medical and safety advancements.

And, when it comes to importance of spiders, it has to be mentioned that no one should ever forget Charlotte’s web reminding us always to stay “humble”.

But, even though I know all of this; it doesn’t seem to make a difference when I see one crawling down the wall, or dropping from the ceiling.  They just freak me out.  I think it is the eyes, and probably all of the horror movies I have seen with them too.  Who knows, maybe it is just a girl thing.  But, one thing is for sure, I would prefer that they would not be in my house.  So, what to do… research of course and find ways to ensure that I am not allowing a spider breeding ground where I reside.

Not going the traditional pesticide route because I have small children and a zoo of pets, I stumbled upon a couple of great ways to reduce the amount of spiders in my home.  I figured since spiders typically scare others too, I would share this information with all of you as well.

One of the first steps in keeping a spider free home is to keep it tidy.  Spiders love clutter.  Clutter allows ample hiding places for them.  Spiders typically like to live in your homes crevices, corners, and lesser manned areas of your home such as under the beds, closets, basements, attics, and garages.  By keeping a tidy house, you are eliminating their hiding places.

If possible, keep all vegetation around your house such as trees and bushes, cut and trimmed.  Spiders love to live in plants and ivy vines, but this beautiful vegetation can turn into a spider haven.  If you are able to move any potted plants away from doorways and entrances, this also moves the spiders away.  Another tip is to keep your lawn mowed and maintained.

Where ever there is spider food; there will be spiders.  So, by the same logic, if there is no food source available, the spiders will move on.  This becomes important in the case of trash cans and flies.  Spiders love flies, and flies love trash.  If possible consider moving your trash cans in the opposite direction from your home’s entrance.  This will lessen the chance of a spider entering your home when the temperature outside changes and they are seeking out warmth.  The same logic applies if you leave outside lights on.  Lights attract insects, especially at night.  Nobody wants a beacon of light showcasing your home as the hip place for insects to be; it is best to turn these lights off at night.  However, if you have an outside night light that stays on for safety reasons, you may want to consider switching the light bulb to a sodium vapor light.  These types of lights do not attract insects like regular lights do.

When it comes to precautions with insects inside the home, anytime there is left out food, insects like ants and flies are attracted.  By covering the leftovers and wiping off counters and prep space, you are lessening the chance that insects will be attracted to the scent of human food.  Vacuuming your house daily also reduces the crumbs we leave behind that attract insects.   The key to remember is no insect food source equals no spiders.

As a final precaution, seal any cracks that may lead indoors.  Pay close attention to your windows and doorways.  A sealed house is a spider free house.

Now, there are also some natural deterrents that you can use to make your home less inviting to spiders.  As with anything you are trying for the first time, you will want to test patch first in a small inconspicuous area of your home.  You do not want to ruin any surfaces or fabrics of your home.

Spraying your home’s entrances, window frames, and any cracks with certain essential oils deters spiders away.  These oils are best made with a measurement of 2 tsp of essential oils to 1 cup water.  Adding a few drops of dish detergent allows for a consistent solution so the essential oils just don’t sit on the top of the water.   Simply combine the three ingredients in a spray bottle, give it a nice hearty shake and spray away.

The essential oils that work best are:

oranOrange Essential Oil
Peppermint Essential Oil
Neem Oil
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Tea Tree Essential Oil

If you do not prefer the spray bottle method, you may want to use the mixture on a cotton ball.  Then, simply place the cotton ball in corners, crevices, or notorious spider hang outs of your home to deter spiders from taking in residence there.  Just remember to test first.

 

Fragrance & Fun for Everyone

Inspire, Create, and Dominate!

Favorite Fragrance Notes


This entry was posted in fragrance notes, fragrance oil, Fragrance Oils, fragrances, Natures Garden Essential Oils, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils and tagged , , , , , on by .

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.

Happy 4th of July from Natures Garden


This entry was posted in Natures Garden, Natures Garden Essential Oils, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden News, Natures Garden Wholesale and tagged , , , , on by .

usaHappy 4th of July from all of us at Natures Garden! Today is a day to be thankful for the freedoms we have, and to be reminded of how important it is to never take those freedoms for granted. The rights we have in the US are individual rights, not collective rights; thus protecting the individual from mob rule. Very courageous men and women have fought to keep those rights for us, and I am eternally grateful to our military for everything they do for this country. I am also grateful to all of the constitution-supporting elected officials who fight everyday to keep our freedoms alive and well.  Without personal freedoms, it would be very difficult to make the American Dream come true.

My personal life story, I have been told, is a story of the American Dream that came true.  I say this with all humbleness, and thoroughly understand that my American Dream story did not come true simply by my efforts or my business knowledge alone.  My American Dream came true by building a team of people who were committed to making Natures Garden a success, and due to the customers who have believed in us over the years.  Back in 1997 when we started Natures Garden, the only thing we had going for us was a “commitment to a dream”.  Working out of a very small basement, we had no money, very very limited space, and very little help.  I knew we needed to find help to make this dream come true, but how in the world would I get people to believe in this dream I had?  Let’s face it, the work environment was a far cry from something that looked like it had the potential of success.natures garden crew

I told myself that if my company would ever be taken seriously, I would have to treat my dream with respect, and get people to work with me who believed in that dream too.  I surrounded myself with people who believed in me and the company dream.  Being only 29 years old, fired up with ambition, I was some how able to sleep only a few hours a night without killing myself.  Everyday I would say to my team, “Failure is not an option”.

You see, nothing in life has come easy to me.  At one point in my life, living in a small trailer, I could not even afford fuel oil to stay warm in the middle of winter.  Even at the lowest point in my life, I never thought I had it rough.  I simply picked up extra shifts waitressing to make ends meet.  For some reason, God has always provided.  Things do not fall into my lap, and if there is such a thing as “luck”, I sure have none.  What I have is an obsessive work ethic, and an uncontrolled optimism that great things can and will happen when you remain committed to what you want to achieve. In America, if you dream it, you truly can achieve it.  It may not be easy (it sure wasn’t for me), but we do have a system that allows ambitious people to reach their dreams.

After 16 years in business, I look back and I am truly thankful for the Freedoms I have in America.  Without those rights, and without elected officials who fight to keep those rights, small businesses in America would not exist.  I am thankful to all of our customers who have believed in us over the years.  I am thankful for the amazing team I get to work with at Natures Garden.  These people truly care about our customers, and they care about their personal performance.  God bless all of you, and may God continue to Bless the USA!

Natural Home Cleaning Products


This entry was posted in all natural, aromatherapy, creative, Fragrance Oils, herbs, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Essential Oils, wholesale supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Wholesale Essential OilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Patti Page, owner of Aromatherapy Naturals-Natural Aromatherapy Home Cleaning Products.

Owning a cleaning service business for over 14 years and cleaning hundreds of homes, I know a lot about cleaning products. I know what cleans well and what doesn’t. Believe me I have tried dozens of cleaning products!

I have taken this experience and knowledge and developed a line of natural aromatherapy cleaning products that not only smell good, but are superior in performance as well.

Tested and Proven:  Aromatherapy Naturals Products were not created in a lab. They were created in a small rural town in Indiana by a Cleaning Service Owner with 14 years experience in the cleaning industry by fusing together the art of aromatherapy and the science of cleaning.

Making the Switch:  In 2006 after using harsh cleaning chemicals on a daily basis for years I decided to start using only natural cleaning products to clean our clients homes. I wanted a natural product that not only cleaned well, but would leave our clients homes with a pleasant scent. After extensive research I found a company that made Natural Cleaning Products using essential oils. I started purchasing the products from this company and using them in my cleaning service. That was when Aromatherapy House Cleaning was born!

Everything was going well and we continued to use the products from this company. Then the company I was purchasing the products from sold out to another company. The other company changed the formulas and scents and only offered a few products. I was not interested in purchasing the products from this company after they had changed the formulas and scents. By this time I had completely based my cleaning service on these products. I wasn’t sure what to do at this point since no one else sold this type of product. I tried other products but did not care for them.

After much consideration and prayer I took the leap of faith and decided to go forward and make a product line myself to use in my cleaning business. After countless hours of research and many nights spent working on the formulas and praying for God’s assistance to help with the formulas, Aromatherapy Naturals was conceived. I couldn’t have done it without the help of the Lord.

After using the natural aromatherapy products in my cleaning business, I started getting requests from cleaning companies who had visited my website and saw that I was using these products asking for information about purchasing the products we were using. In 2008 I started Aromatherapy Naturals and started selling the products to home owners and cleaning services all over the United States and Canada. Since then I have added several products to offer everything needed to clean homes naturally.

Every Order is Carefully Created by Hand:  Aromatherapy Naturals commitment to purity and quality goes as far as to guarantee that your products are not created until the time you place your order.

I use the Natural Vanilla Infusion from Nature’s Garden in 2 of my essential oil blends and I just love it. I only use pure essential oils in my blends and since there is no vanilla essential oil I wasn’t able to use vanilla in the blends until I found the Vanilla Infusion at Nature’s Garden. I now use the Vanilla Infusion to make a Lavender Vanilla Blend and also a Warm Orange Spice Blend. I also use Nature’s Garden Coconut Oil and Olive Oil.  I love the fact that the shipping is so fast at Nature’s Garden. I can place an order and it ships the same day or the next day at the latest.

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Caryn Stockwell, Second Star Designs

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I have been a professional seamstress and clothing designer for over 20 years, starting and closing a number of companies over the years.  In 2008, at the behest of a local store, I launched Second Star Designs with my line of children’s clothing – providing quality products that my customers could afford; clothing that could be handed down generation after generation instead of ending up in landfills.  In 2011, my skin developed a sensitivity to certain chemicals and fibers.  This led to the creation of clothing produced using only natural fibers and eventually, only organic materials.  This sensitivity increased to a point wherein I even became sensitive to the chemicals found in commercially produced body products. 

In 2012, out of concern for the environment and the toxins used in the majority of the products found on the store shelves, I created an organic healing salve for use in our home.  I shared this new product with friends and family.  Those using this salve responded with excitement over its healing properties, asking where they could purchase it in bulk.  Within a few short months, four stores in the Portland/Vancouver Metro area were carrying my healing salve and requesting additional products along similar lines.  These requests led to my Barista Blend lip balms, Aromatic Tub Teas, and organic MP soap bars, which were released in December 2012.

With the onset of 2013, I was accepted as an Official Designer for Fashion Week San Diego.  The organizers were interested in both my organic, bio-friendly adult clothing line and my small line of organic body products; asking me to bring both product lines to San Diego this coming Fall.  In the meantime, I was receiving requests from stores to add additional products to the body products line.  Always willing to try something new, I created my first loaf of cold process soap toward the end of January.  Much in the same way that one tattoo leads to another, one loaf of soap has led to another and another and another … with people wanting to purchase bars of soap simply from seeing photos posted on my Facebook Fan Page.

In the last three months, I have discovered a new passion in the creation of organic body products; products that we personally love to use.  In addition to the soaps, healing salve, and tub teas, I have added a number of organic products that consist of 98% to 100% organic ingredients, packaged in recyclable/biodegradable packaging.

3.  What products do you make and sell?   I have a line of clothing for infants and children.  I am designing and manufacturing a line of bio-friendly adult clothing.  Under the raison éthique™ by Second Star Designs label, I have added a line of organic body products to my repertoire:  CP soap, lip balms, tub teas, scented bath salts, chocolate solar salts, healing salve, capsaicin cream, whipped body soufflés, massage oil lotion bars, foaming liquid hand soap, bath truffles, and glycerin soap.  In the next two months, along with creating our own glycerin soap base, we anticipate offering massage oil candles which will be hand-crafted using a proprietary blend of GMO-free, non-soy, vegetable wax.

4.  What are your business goals?   We are hoping to grow both business divisions into self-supporting entities providing wonderful products that our customers’ skin will love to live in.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?   I use a number of essential oils from Natures Garden; my favorites being their Natural Vanilla Infusion.  I have also recently discovered that NG carries a number of oils, butters and clays that are difficult to find anywhere else … which I plan on adding to my shopping list.
