Balsam FragranceBalsam Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Balsam fir trees, native to northern North America, are evergreen trees that thrive in cooler environments. You may know them better as… CHRISTMAS TREES. That’s right, balsam fir trees are your seasonal superhero’s secret identity. It takes about a decade for these trees to reach ideal Christmas tree height- 6 or 7 feet- but they can live to be up to 200 years old and grow up to 60 feet in height. Can you imagine how many presents would fit under that tree?!

What Does Balsam Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fresh pine balsam aroma is great for Christmas time, or all year round. Use by itself, or for mixing creative new scents for your line.

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam Fragrance Oil?

They design delightful decorative candles! Balsam Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring suggestion for candles made with this wonderful pine scent are to use 4 drops green plus a little black liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of green color block into your melted wax. Black candle colorant only comes in liquid candle dye. Please remember that our liquid candle dyes are VERY CONCENTRATED and as someone who likes to mix colors for painting and various craft applications, let me tell you that you only need a tiny amount of black color to make something darker. Itty bitty tiny little bit of black. You can always add more, but I recommend using the tip of a toothpick, dipping it in your dye, and then dipping it in your wax. Also- never use crayons to color your candles; it’ll clog the wick.

They scent rooms without using wax! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fresh fir fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%. It came across nice and strong in aroma beads. You could also modify our Glamour Aroma Bead Air Freshener Recipe, use Balsam Fragrance Oil instead of I’m Too Sexy Fragrance Oil and use Christmas-tree-shaped (or any Christmas shape your heart desires) cookie cutters to make cute little Christmas ornaments! Remember, though, that once you use baking tools to make a recipe with fragrance oils, do not use them again in cooking applications. Even minute residue from your recipe could make you sick if you eat it. Set your fragrance fun equipment aside from you cooking equipment; better safe than sorry!

They also invent amazing bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this simply spectacular scent in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 3.5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this amazing aroma performed perfectly in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and very, very strong scent retention. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0% so it is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products. Our coloring suggestions are to use green and black soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. (Don’t forget what I said above about using black in a color mix!) We’ve also got some natural soap colorants that you’re welcome to try! We’ve got a handful of natural green soap colorants, and for black: activated charcoal. Be sure to read the pages on the powders- some soapmaking processes may affect the intended color of your soap. (You can also read-up on the nutrients and other benefits of these natural colorants!)

Check out our Christmas tree soap molds for festive holiday soapmaking!

They create body products for outside of the bath! This fresh pine aroma performs perfectly in perfumes, and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body-sprays is 3.5%.

They even come up with cool cleaning products. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fragrance in cleaning products is 3.5%.

Autumn Woods FragranceAutumn Woods Fragrance Oil Spotlight

It’s almost Autumn and I am elated! Fall is by far my favorite season. One of the best things about this (soon-to-be) time of year is the changing colors and falling of the leaves. And what’s better than taking a walk through the woods on a brisk autumn day? I love the crunch, crunch, crunch of the leaves underneath my feet. It’s also easier to breath. Take a deep breath of that cool, crisp autumn air and you basically have this fantastic fall fragrance!

What Does Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is a walk in the woods with the smell of crisp leaves under foot and fresh pine with berries falling off the trees.

Top Notes:  Lemon, Orange, Lime, Blackberries
Mid Notes:  Carnation, Rose, Muguet
Base Notes: Pine, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Eucalyptus leaves

How Do Our Customers Use Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil?

All kinds of creative ways! Firstly, they make delightful decorative candles. This earthy aura performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 4 drops of yellow plus 1 drop of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of yellow and brown color block into your melted wax. As cool and creative as it may sound, do NOT color your candles with crayons–it will clog the wick!

Secondly, they make some super room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this full-bodied fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%. This autumn aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. We’ve also got an awesome Autumn Leaves Potpourri Recipe made with Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil, cute little leaf molds, and shiny gold mica pigment! A beautiful fall decoration that exudes a wonderful scent.

If you’d like to do some autumn-cleaning, the maximum recommended usage percentage for this seasonal scent in cleaning products is 5%.

Thirdly, bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this complex accord results in no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and nice, strong scent retention. It discolors CP soap to a tan color. This is possibly due to the 1.84% vanillin content of the fragrance. Vanillin has the tendency to discolor bath and body products. If you’d prefer, you can try to combat this with Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, but please remember you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use yellow and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. You can also try natural soap colorants for some truly earthy tones, but pay close attention to the information on the page- some soapmaking processes can alter the desired color of your final soap. Experimenting is always okay! But never color your bath and body products with candle colorants- that is one experiment to avoid.

And finally, body products outside of the bath! This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body-sprays it 3.95%.

Wear this fragrance on your body or use it to fill rooms with scent- you will certainly feel all the fragrant fun of fall!

Asian Pear Lily FragranceAsian Pear and Lily Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Asian pears or Nashi pears are large, juicy fruits native to- you guessed it- Asia! They are very different from what we normally think of when we think of pears. These fruits are so juicy, in fact, that they have the tendency to bruise easily. Being so delicate, they are considered a delicacy! In addition, according to Wikipedia, in China, it is considered a social faux pas to share a pear with a friend or loved one. “Sharing a pear” (分梨) is a homophone of “separate” (分离). In certain Asian cultures- lilies are used in food applications. The lily also has an abundance of cultural and literary meanings.  So this fragrance is not only rich in smell, but also rich in meaning!

What Does Asian Pear and Lily Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A beautiful, complex accord containing top notes of Nashi Pear, Apple, and Leafy Greenery; followed by middle notes of Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, and Rose Petals; all sitting on base notes of Pear Nectar, Musk, and Peony Blossoms.

Apricot Fragrance

Apricot FragranceApricot Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Mmmm, apricots. Apricots are ‘stone fruits’ or drupes, much like almonds and pecans. They’re also very closely related to the peach. Peachy! Europeans long considered apricots to be aphrodisiacs, and they are featured as such in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Oberon, the king of the fairies, puts a spell on Titania, the queen of the fairies, to make her fall in love with the first creature she sees when she awakes. This being a comedy of errors, the first living being she sees upon waking up is Nick Bottom who has been magically given the head of a donkey by the mischievous Puck. Titania demands that her servants feed Bottom all kinds of delicious fruits, including apricots. While the plot is not centered on apricots- it’s still an interesting fact and a good read. Dried apricots are also used as a natural laxative (like prunes) because of their high fiber content. If you have a tummy ache, eating dried apricots may help; but don’t eat this fragrance oil- that will definitely give you a tummy ache or worse. But smelling it will make you feel happy and energized!

What Does Apricot Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of ripened fresh apricots. This scent is great on its own, or you can come up with your own fragrance combinations.

How Do Our Customers Use Apricot Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This fresh fruity fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sweet scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations are to use three drops of coral/orange liquid candle dye  plus 1 drop yellow liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of orange & yellow color block into your melted wax.

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this apricot aroma in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0%, so it is quite unlikely to discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that this scent performed just about perfectly: no discoloration, no acceleration, no separation, and good scent retention.

Apple Butter CaramelApple Butter Caramel Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We’ve got alluring apple aromas in abundance. Apple butter is an incredible spread made by slow cooking apples with cider, sugar, and spices until the delicious mixture reaches a butter-like consistency. I’m drooling just thinking about it. You can spread it on toast, eat it straight out of the jar, or bake it into a mouth-watering pie. Caramel is made by heating a variety of sugars, a bit of cream, and vanilla–another taste-bud-tempting treat. Mix the two together and you have sugar, spice, and everything nice. Tempt your tummy (don’t eat fragrance oil) and satisfy your sense of smell with this savory scent.

What Does Apple Butter Caramel Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is an amazing combination of the following aromatic notes to make apple butter caramel fragrance truly fantastic:  McIntosh apple, steamed milk, pure sugar, caramel candy, toffee pudding, apple butter, fresh nutmeg, vanilla bean, and soft musk.

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Butter Caramel Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This amazing apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this savory scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use six drops of red plus two drops brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred an ample amount of red and brown color block into your melted wax. Attempting to color your candles with crayons will clog the wick.

Soaps! This delicious bakery scent has a maximum recommended usage percentage of 5% in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products. The vanillin content of this fruit fragrance is 6.7%, so it will likely discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing found that cured CP soap made with Apple Butter Caramel fragrance discolored to brown. Otherwise it had a perfect pour: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The scent retention is strong. If you’d like to try to prevent discoloration in your bath and body products, try using our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It may help prevent discoloration due to vanilla, but you are responsible for the results in your final product. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. (Never use candle dye in any body products.)

We’ve got this cool 3D Apple Mold that you could use to make soaps or candles. If there’s one thing I know about our customers, it’s that they’re creative, crafty! See what kind of fun things you can come up with; share pictures with us on Facebook if your heart desires.

Apples and Oak FragranceApples and Oak Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Smelling this fragrance oil will make you feel as if you’re eating a giant, juicy apple while sitting under an awesome oak tree. Oh, oaks. Oaks are big, beautiful trees that provide an immense amount of shade. You might have seen them in your yard or a park; they’re quite popular in recreational areas. Oaks are also a symbol of strength, and let me tell you, this is a strong, beautiful scent. The wood from oak trees is used to make wine barrels and the bark of cork oak is used to make wine stoppers. The oak barrels add an extra richness to these wines. (We’ve got wine scents, too!) In 2004, the United States Congress officially designated the oak as America’s National Tree. So what could be more American than apples and oak? (Baseball?) There are even famous oak trees that are estimated to be hundreds- if not over a thousand- years old.  Acorns also come from oaks, and if you’re looking for an acorn fragrance without the apples, we’ve got that, too: Acorn Harvest Fragrance Oil.

What Does Apples and Oak Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A truly complex fragrance blend of McIntosh and Granny Smith apples, with notes of woodsy fresh oak leaves and oak moss.

How Do Our Customers Use Apples and Oak Fragrance Oil?

It is gel wax compatible! The maximum recommended usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%.

Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

As far as soap molds go, we’ve got a pretty neat 3D Apple Mold if you’d like to make apple-shaped, apples-and-oak-scented soap. We’ve also got cute little Oak Leaves & Acorns molds if you’d like to make small oak-leaf-  or acorn-shaped soaps. This mold also works for candle embeds, which works wonderfully with this gel wax compatible fragrance!

Apple Pecan Sage Fragrance


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

Apple Pecan Sage FragranceApple Pecan Sage Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Again, another amazing apple aroma. After some brief research on Wikipedia, I can tell you that “pecan” comes from a Native American word meaning ‘a nut that requires a stone to crack.’ No stones needed to open this fragrance oil. (There’s a lot of cool information on that pecan page; learn something new!) Pecans, much like our friend the almond, are drupes- not technically nuts- but in my experience, the more you try to convince someone you’re not nuts, the more nuts you seem. The important part is that the nutty scent of pecans goes well with apples and spicy sage. Sage is a natural deodorizer and has many additional uses that you can read about in our Sage Class. (Our fragrance oil is for smelling purposes only- but we do sell sage leaf, sage incense smudging wands, and white sage leaves for all of your sage needs!)

 What Does Apple Pecan Sage Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of sweet, freshly picked apples with aromatic spices and a wonderful nutty flavor.

Top:  Apple, Pear, Banana
Mid:  Cinnamon, Sage, Clove, Cardamom
Base:   Pecan, Vanilla

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Pecan Sage Fragrance Oil?

They create candles! This spicy, nutty, apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage of this spicy sweet scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are to use four drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of red color block in your melted wax. (Coloring with crayons will clog your wick; don’t do it!)

They make savory soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this bountiful bouquet in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results found that CP soap made with this fragrance had perfect pour with plenty of time to play. (I smell swirls!) There was no ricing, no acceleration, and slight oil separation, but it absorbs back into the soap. The scent stays very strong, and the soap discolors to a brown color. This might be due to the fact that this full-bodied fruit fragrance has a vanillin content of 3% (but truthfully, over 40 ingredients can cause discoloration). Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help prevent discoloration due to vanilla. Testing will need to be done by the customer with all fragrances they choose. Our coloring recommendations for bath and body products made with this awesome apple aroma are to use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

How about lotions and perfumes? The maximum recommended usage percentage of this savory scent in perfumes and lotions is 5%. It was found to perform perfectly in perfumes.

And room scents? Sure! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this autumn aura in incense and potpourri is 50%. It comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.
