Bergamot FragranceBergamot Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Bergamot fragrance comes from the bergamot orange. Strange name seeing as it’s not actually orange- more of a yellow-ish green but it is the size of an orange. Hmm. Well, it is a citrus fruit. its Latin name is Citrus bergamia. ‘Bergamot’ comes from the Italian bergamotta or ‘prince of pears.’ …but it isn’t a pear, either. Most of the world’s bergamot oranges are grown in southern Italy, the rest in southern France. It is also grown in southern France and southern Turkey.  The flesh of this fruit is not edible- not that you would ever eat fragrance or essential oils, anyway. Oil made from pressing the peel is used for a variety of flavorings, most famously, Earl Grey Tea and Turkish Delight. It is often made into marmalade in Italy. Bergamot oil is even used in smokeless tobacco products as flavoring. It takes about 100 bergamot oranges to make 3 oz of bergamot oil. For this reason, pure bergamot oil is highly coveted. Bergamot oil has been an ingredient in fragrance since as early as 1714.

What Does Bergamot Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Crisp, clean and juicy with a subtle floralcy;  the citrus jewel of the Mediterranean (bergamot essential oil) is uplifting and bright. This distinctive aroma is the perfect scent for an aromatherapy lotion or candle to escape the everyday.

Enji Natures GardenHi, I’m Katie from Nature’s Garden. (That’s me and Enji!) We’ve got a great team here, and my role largely involves writing fragrance blogs and rendering videos. I’ve been working here for a little over two months, and I’ve watched Bailey make a LOT of soap (you can, too, if you click that link)! Until I started working here, I had very little knowledge of soapmaking (and I still have a LOT to learn), but you bet your bippy I like crafts of all kinds, and I’ve been itching to get my hands on some soap. This past weekend, a friend asked me to house-sit and I had a rare opportunity: an entire kitchen at my disposal. (I live with my folks, two teenage siblings, and a large puppy [keep reading for pic], so the kitchen can be a little crowded.) On Friday, I frantically purchased soapmaking supplies from our store, and soon after started my first foray into melt-and-pour.

Katie’s Impulsive Orange Soap

Truthfully, I don’t trust myself with anything too potentially hazardous. While I’ve read all about lye safety and its proper handling, I still don’t trust my clumsy self. Melt and pour seemed to be the way to go. We use mango butter in our cold process soap-testing recipe because of its moisturizing properties, so I decided to buy some Mango Butter Melt and Pour Soap.

Natures Garden Reed Diffuser KitOn a separate note, I am absolutely obsessed with Blood Orange Essential Oil. Pictured to the right is the reed diffuser that sits in my office, filled with blood orange essential oil (and reed diffuser baseReed diffuser kits come plain- I just painted mine to match the workplace). It smells insanely amazing and its considered aromatherapy benefits are as a stimulant and an anti-depressant (an aphrodisiac, too, but that’s not important at work). IMPORTANT NOTE ON USING CITRUS ESSENTIAL OILS IN BATH AND BODY PRODUCTS: Citrus fruits contain compounds designed to help them absorb sunlight to ripen. Citrus essential oils are likely to increase the photosensitivity- or sensitivity to sunlight- of your skin. I’m already as white as ghost, so I need to be especially careful not to use this soap on body parts that will see a lot of sun. I already get sunburnt pretty easily, and overuse of citrus essential oil on sun-exposed skin can lead to a type of super-sunburn. No thank you.

My idea quickly became centered around making an energizing soap with mango butter melt and pour and blood orange essential oil- but what else? I looked up natural soap colorantsOrange Peel Powder, rich with vitamins and a citrus aroma, seemed like an obvious addition, and for extra orange color, I included skin-nourishing Carrot Powder and cleansing Red Moroccan Clay Powder. Let me remind you again that I pretty much have no idea what I’m doing. –Since I was a kid, I’ve loved making my own recipes. Even if they were terrible. I once put cinnamon squares cereal in a bowl with ripped up bread and orange soda pop. I have no idea why. I can’t imagine anyone ate it. (I’m not sure how those fragrances would smell together, either.)– But no one’s going to eat this soap, so I figured I couldn’t go too terribly wrong, right?

To recap, here’s my recipe (and a picture of me and my dog for fun):

Mango Butter Melt and Pour Soap – 1lb
Blood Orange Essential Oil – ~32 drops
Orange Peel Powder – 2 tbsp
Carrot Powder – 1 tbsp
Red Moroccan Clay Powder – 1 tbsp

Other Supplies:

Knife
Cutting board
Scale
Stove
Small sauce pan
Glass 2-cup Measuring Container with spout
Water
Tbsp measuring spoon
Small bowl
Whisk
Stainless steel spoon
Disposable pipettes
Bite-sized daisies mold

Making it:

First, gotta cut up those lil melt and pour squares. I cut my soap along the lines laid out and then I cut those pieces into halves or even quarters for faster melting. You can use a microwave, but I wanted more time to add my herbs and oil so I used the double boiler method to melt my mango butter base (or something very similar- I just googled “double boiler method” and that’s not exactly what I did. Oops.) In the little bowl I mixed 1 tbsp of each of my powders with the whisk, being sure to break up carrot powder clumps. Once my soap base was good and melt-y, I stirred in my powders and began mixing with a whisk. Shortly thereafter I used a pipette to add my blood orange essential oil. I didn’t measure this one out exactly, but a friend suggested I use no more than a few drops of essential oil per ounce of base, so initially I went with about 1 drop/oz. It didn’t smell orange-y enough to me,Impulsive-Orange-Two so I added an extra tbsp of orange peel powder and upped my essential oil to 2 drops/oz base. Once I got my batter thoroughly mixed, I poured it into that *cute little flower mold,* very messily, I might add, and very carefully laid the filled molds on paper towels on a flat shelf in the fridge. I waited a while for them to set up, at least a half hour, and then popped them out and put them in a zip-seal bag. THEY SMELL GREAT. I cannot get over how much I love this soap. I have never smelled anything like it before- it’s orange-y and herbal-y and the soap turned out to be a tan-orange color- and I LOVE IT.

But melt and pour comes in two pound slabs.. so what did I do with the other pound?

Bacon-SoapBACON SOAP

This one was more simple and scientific. One pound = 16 oz.  and (16 x 0.05 = 0.8). I measured out 0.8 oz Bacon Fragrance Oil and.. I’m not sure sure how much Red Moroccan Clay Powder I used.. maybe 3 or 4 tbsp? But I used the same melt and pour method described above and ended up with a pound of bacon soap! Woohoo! Be sure to keep this soap away from your puppy- he might mistake them for treats- they are bite-sized and they smell like bacon. Though honestly, my goofy dog will try to eat anything.

I can’t wait to create another soap recipe with herbs and essential oils!

Natural Home Cleaning Products

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.
