Nature’s Garden worked long and hard to find a true coffee fragrance that did not have any chocolate undertones to it. Fresh Brewed Coffee-World’s Best fragrance has wonderful effervescent coffee top notes, and incredible scent throw! This fragrance is so strong; we suggest cutting back on the amount you use in your applications. Also, please do not judge this fragrance out of the bottle. It may smell intimidating and a little scary, but we are sure you will be pleased with how amazing your products are going to smell.

Take my word for it, you’re gonna love this fragrance oil by Natures Garden! This fragrance oil has the aroma of a favorite fall dessert. The smell of creamy pumpkin pie filling with rich Eagle Brand Milk; surrounded with freshly baked yellow cake, melted butter, pecans, and hints of spice.

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells just like the essential oil. Dragon’s blood truly has a smell all its own. The actual Dragon’s blood is a resin that is collected from a number of different plants and has long been used as a varnish, incense, dye and in medicine. However, our Dragon’s Blood Fragrance Oil is a Nature’s Garden best seller and is a perfect duplication of the incense or essential oil.

Green Irish fragrance oil is perfect for anybody that loves a strong, fresh clean scent. It is actually one of my favorites! I could sniff it all day and not get tired of it! Spicy-sweet blend of French verbena and lemon, a green Florentine iris and violet leaves, and sublime notes of Mysore sandalwood and ambergris. This should be a definite addition to your men’s line of products, but we have quite a few reviews stating that it makes a good unisex fragrance. I know I like it!
Green Irish fragrance oil worked beautifully in cold process soap testing! No ricing, accelerating, or separating! A perfect fragrance to work with if you want to add some color or swirls to your soaps. It did discolor to a light lavender, but adding soap colorant, micas or even a natural colorant would help cover it up. The scent retention stayed wonderfully strong throughout its cure time. This fragrance had amazing hot and cold throws in our candle wax testing. It also made wonderful air fresheners and did very well in all other bath and body products.
Margarita Fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a fresh lime fragrance with hints of lemon rinds and fresh greenery. This fragrance oil has high levels of essential oil of lime for a true-to-name aroma.

Sugar and salt scrubs are very popular nowadays. They are truly easy to make and they will leave your skin feeling soft, refreshed and clean afterward. Our Margarita Salt Scrub is a perfect example. Most margaritas are served with a salted rim, so a salt scrub was the perfect recipe for the fragrance. This scrub has an amazing product in it, Sodium Cocoly Isothionate or SCI. This is a gentle, foaming surfactant made from coconut and is a must for soft skin. We also incorporated Dead Sea salt, vitamin E, mango and shea butters, and jojoba oil. Some amazing skin nourishing ingredients in this mighty yummy salt scrub! This would be a perfect summertime addition to your products! If you are looking for the real thing, you can try one of these margarita recipes.

You are not going to get any closer to a Leather Jacket smell unless you are wearing the real thing! Leather Jacket is spot on to a black, leather jacket you get in an expensive leather goods store. Crisp and clean is the thought that pops into my mind when I get a whiff of this!
Leather Jacket did amazing in our cold process testing. No ricing, accelerating, separating or discoloring.

Stormy Nights is another one of my all-time favorite fragrances! This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an earthy, yet ozonic fragrance blend reminiscent of the way the night smells after a storm.

This yummy fragrance oil did fairly well in cold process soap testing. We experienced some slight acceleration so soaping at room temperature is strongly suggested. However, there was no ricing, separating or discoloring to the soap. The scent stuck very well and stayed strong through the cure time. Sweet Orange Chili Pepper had wonderful hot and cold throws in candle making. It also made wonderful air fresheners and it worked well in all bath and body products.
With such a popular fragrance, we needed a recipe to go along with it. Nature’s Garden created Sweet Orange Chili Pepper Cold Process Soap Recipe. Our base soap recipe is helpful when creating the pretty red and orange swirls. There was no accelerating and it gave excellent time to do an in the pot swirl.
I know that most people think that strawberry may seem like a delicate, light fragrance to work with, but not Nature’s Garden Strawberry Passion! This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an incredibly strong, rich ripened strawberry fragrance with bottom notes of cotton candy and French vanilla. Strawberry Passion fragrance oil will be a perfect summer addition and it will be sure to please those that like strawberries.
This fragrance did awesome in cold process soap testing. With no ricing, accelerating or separating, it was perfect to work with. However, it did discolor to a chocolate brown.
