How Do Our Customers Use Cashmere Type Fragrance Oil?

Cleaning products can be made that utilize this fragrance at a maximum of 4.6%.

Homemade soap, bath products, and body products can be made using this fragrance at a maximum of 5%. Perfumes will perform perfectly at or below this percentage. Also, bath and body products will perform well using the same concentration of this sensual fragrance. Also, soapers can utilize this fragrance for either melt and pour soap or cold process soap. Our cold process soap results show that our Cashmere Type Fragrance will produce a perfect pour! Not only that, but this fragrance causes no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. This scent will discolor to a very light beige and has a good scent retention. Further, we at Nature’s Garden regard Cashmere Type Fragrance to be an extremely nice, very upscale, and classy scent. Although the discoloration of this bar will be is minimal, vanilla white stabilizer can be used. This will help with any discoloration caused by the vanillin content of 1.05%, which will produce a whiter bar. However, there are more than 40 ingredients used by perfumists that can cause discoloration.  For coloring, we suggest using pink soap colorant and purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products.

Candles and other room scents can be handcrafted using Cashmere Type Fragrance. Homemade room scenters can use up to 50% for incense and potpourri. Also, this scent is nice and strong when used in aroma beads. Homemade candle crafters can use up to 10% of this fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax. Further, this scent performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax.  Plus, it is nice and strong in soy wax. We suggest using one drop of red liquid candle dye with a tiny bit of purple liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax to color these candles. On the other hand, a nice color can be made by shredding a small amount of red color block and purple color block into your melted wax. Just remember that crayons do not make a sufficient substitute for candle colorants. Although crayons may provide color, they will clog your wick.

We hope that use this sensual fragrance and it will inspire you to create magnificent works!

how to color candlesHow to Color Candles

Hi everyone! Are you just starting out making your own candles? Wondering how to color candles? Here at Nature’s Garden, we actually have many wonderful products that are used specifically for the candle coloring process. We offer only the best candle coloring products out there, with each item having its own vibrant personality! We offer so many different dye products, each having their own different specifications when used in your candles. We have liquid candle dye options as well as color block dye. We even have mica dust that you can sprinkle on the outside of you pillar candles to give them the effect of sparkling!

For liquid candle dyes, we offer various Spectrum Liquid Candle Dyes ranging in color. The colors of liquid dyes we offer here at Nature’s Garden are brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, black, burgundy, purple, and teal. (However, when using these liquid dyes, please just note that they are very concentrated!) To use the liquid dyes, just put a few drops of the liquid into your melted wax.  If you are in the mood for more of a pastel color (or if you are doing a very small batch) for your candle, all you have to do to the dye is dilute it using vegetable oil with the ratio of 1:1. Be careful with the amount of dye you use as well. When you use liquid dye, it allows you to create more consistent coloring in your candles since you count how any drops are put in. But be careful not use more than 10 drops per pound of wax, or else your candles may have a chemical smell to them.

For our color block dyes, the colors we offer are red, burgundy, yellow, blue, green, purple, brown, cinnamon, teal, cranberry, and a coral/peach. To use a color block to color your candle, simply shave off the desired amount and place it into your melted wax.  One color block is actually enough to easily deeply dye 15 pounds of wax. When using color blocks, they actually do not produce colors as vibrant as the liquid dyes, so they are better when trying to attain more subtle colors. However, when using color blocks, make sure that the block is fully incorporated before pouring your candle! They can tend to produce little specks of colors on the bottoms of your candles if they are not fully melted and mixed into the wax.

Want to give your pillar some sparkle to bling it up a little bit? Use some of our Gold Pigment Mica or our Diamond Dust Mica to dust the outside of your pillars! This will give your pillars a beautiful shimmer! Have you ever thoughts of using crayons to color your candles? Well, please don’t! Using crayons for coloring can actually cause the candle to start smoking and may even clog your wicks! Crayons are not alone in this predicament. When dying your candles, be sure not to use too much color as this can cause the wick to become clogged and it may cause your candle to smoke more than it should be. It can even inhibit the throw of your chosen scent and reduce the melt pool of the candle. Candle dyes are not for cosmetic use either! Check out all of our free recipes and classes, we offer many free candle recipes, and even a Candle Coloring Class that tells all about our candle coloring products! If you click on candle supplies then candle colorants on our website, that will show you all of the candle colorants we offer. Our Candle Coloring class even tells how to mix your own colors to achieve the colors you want. Enjoy these wonderful products and watch out for more Enlightened by Layla!
