It’s almost that time of year! Time for Christmas, time for gifts and time for some inspiration to create those gifts. Christmas can sometimes feel overwhelming! From decorating the house, writing out Christmas cards, baking cookies, shopping, Christmas parties, well, the list can go on and on. Plus, trying to think up something fun and unique to give for your friends and family can be intimidating as well. If your a crafter, soaper, candlemaker, then naturally you have the urge to make something for those friends and family. Nature’s Garden has a list of our 10 Popular Christmas Fragrances that we hope will get those creative juices flowing!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Candy Cane Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Candy Cane Fragrance Oil

First up we have our Candy Cane Fragrance Oil. This is a very popular fragrance at Christmas time! This isn’t just a straight up peppermint scent. This fragrance is peppermint, spearmint, with a touch of strawberries, eucalyptus and a nice soft background of vanilla.

Candy Cane fragrance worked perfectly in our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, separation, or accelerating! However, we did experience some discoloring to a brown. You can use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help prevent the oxidation of the fragrance. Also, the scent retention was strong and true throughout the cure time!

This fragrance oil is body safe and would be perfect in all bath and body products. We have a wonderful recipe that uses our Candy Cane Fragrance Oil. Check out our sweet Candy Cane Candle. This candle has pretty pink, red and white layers with a fluffy white topping and some sweet little swirled wafer embeds sitting atop the fluff!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance Oil

This next fragrance oil is lovely all year long, not just at Christmas time! Christmas Cabernet fragrance oil has a true Cabernet scent of cherries and oak. With hints of ginger, vanilla and wine, this is a perfect fragrance to get you into the holiday spirit.

Christmas Cabernet is a soaper’s dream! During our cold process soap testing, there was no ricing, accelerating, or separating. Although it did turn a shade of olive brown, using a Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help prevent this. Also, the scent retention was incredibly strong even after its cure time. This fragrance is also body safe and makes some wonderful smelling bath and body products. It also worked equally well in all soy and vegetable waxes.

If you enjoy making bath and body products, check out our Wine Sugar Scrub recipe. Sugar scrubs are incredibly popular and easy to make. A few simple ingredients such as sugar, olive oil, cocoa butter and grapeseed oil, is all it takes to make up nine 4 oz. jars of this yummy smelling scrub! Your skin will smell amazing and will also feel soft and smooth afterward.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabin Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Cabin Fragrance Oil

Nature’s Garden’s Christmas Cabin Fragrance Oil is a true best seller during the holiday season. If Christmas had a smell it would definitely be the scent of bayberries, cranberries, cinnamon and orange zest! With one sniff, you can practically picture a pine tree, decorated with garlands of popcorn, cranberries, twinkling white lights and rustic ornaments adorning the branches, sitting in the corner of a cozy cabin, a warm, crackling fire burning in the stone fireplace. This fragrance is a definite must for your Christmas line-up!

Christmas Cabin did perfectly in our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, accelerating, separating or discoloring. Also, the scent retention was nice a strong! This fragrance also was perfect in all candle wax testing and room freshening sprays!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Thyme Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Christmas Thyme Fragrance Oil

Christmas Thyme fragrance oil is perfect for those that want a pine fragrance that isn’t overwhelming! Definite top notes of cinnamon, bayberries and apples along with the undertones of pine and thyme. A perfect balance that smells fresh and crisp!

Christmas Thyme is one of the few fragrances that is not body safe, therefore we did no cold process soap testing, nor any testing in bath and body products. However, this is a wonderful scent for those looking for candle fragrances that have wonderful cold and hot throws. This fragrance also makes a perfect room freshener or potpourri and incense.

If you are looking for a recipe to create for those that like potpourri, check out our Christmas Liquid Potpourri Recipe. This recipe uses our DPG solvent and of course, Christmas Thyme fragrance oil. When it’s ready to use, simply pour into your potpourri burner or even an oil burner and let your house fill with the fresh, clean scent of an outdoor Christmas.

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Fragrance Oil

What in the world is a Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins? This fragrance oil by Natures Garden was inspired by one of our favorite movies of all times – “ELF”.  At one point in the movie, Buddy mentions that he feels like a “Cotton headed ninny muggin”; AKA…an ELF Airhead.  This made us think, “What would a cotton headed ninny muggin smell like?”  Cotton headed ninny muggin fragrance oil begins with sweet, buttery, creamy coconut and vanilla frosting; leading to middle notes of powdery heliotrope and spicy hints; and sits on a powerful vanilla base. A very yummy smelling cotton head you will be!

Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins worked perfectly in our cold process soap testing! With no ricing, accelerating, separating, it soaped beautifully. However, it does discolor to a chocolate brown. The addition of some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer would be perfect to help prevent that. This fragrance oil also tested positive in room fresheners, all candle waxes and in bath and body products!

Have you ever thought of making your own play dough? It’s actually an easy craft that the kids can help out making! With some flour, vegetable oil and warm water, you can have some fun creating when it gets too yucky to play outside! Our Scented Play Dough recipe is made with five different colors and five different Christmas fragrances, one being Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins! This is must try if your kids are looking for something fun to do!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Country Christmas Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Country Christmas Fragrance Oil

Our Country Christmas fragrance oil is a truly fantastic scent that is a blend of bayberries, cranberries, and apples, with spicy nuances of nutmeg and cloves with a top note of orange zests. This is another fragrance oil that makes me picture an old fashioned Christmas in a warm, cozy farmhouse or cabin. 

Country Christmas fragrance oil was not tested in cold process soap due to the fact that the maximum body safeness level was very low. If you do choose to soap with it, please try to stick to the guideline of the percentage we have allowed for. However, this fragrance is perfect in candles, wax melts, and any type of room freshening recipe!

With a country Christmas comes pictures of rustic decorations, home smells and family gatherings. We developed an easy decoration that uses our Country Christmas fragrance! Our Scented Twine Christmas Ornaments are a fun, easy craft to create! Simply wrap twine around an inflated balloon, coat the twine in scented glue, allow to dry. When the twine has hardened, you can pop the balloon and you’re left with a yummy smelling, rustic ornament that will give your tree a down-home look!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Dance of The Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Dance of The Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil is truly a charming Christmas scent that is filled with surprises to delight all of the senses! Smell the plums, dark cherries and sweet oranges enhanced with peppery woody pine undertones and you will be entranced with the combination!

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy fragrance did very well in our cold process soap testing! There was no accelerating, ricing or separating. It did discolor to a light beige. It also did wonderful in bath and body products, room fresheners and in all candle waxes with strong scent retention all around.

A very unique fragrance oil deserves its very own recipe! Our creative team came up with the Sugar Plum Bath Bomb recipe! This is a perfect creation for the little girls in your life. With its  sweet fragrance and its pretty sparkly, purple color, the kids will want to take a bath to watch the fizzy, bubbly fun!

Popular Christmas Fragrances: Elf Sweat Fragrance OilPopular Christmas Fragrances: Elf Sweat Fragrance Oil

Do elves sweat? I really don’t know, but if they do than it probably smells like this fragrance!  This fragrance oil by Natures Garden was inspired by Santa’s elves.  Magical, happy, and hard-working…the perfect description of the personalities of Santa’s elves!  Are you ready to smell a fragrance that embraces these personality traits?  Elf sweat fragrance is a bubbly, magical blend of candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup, with effervescent spicy soda pop bubbles to provide a unique, magical top note.  This is fun, creative fragrance oil that will make any products pop!

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blood Orange Fragrance OilOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blood Orange Fragrance Oil

Before we get started, did you know? The Blood Orange is actually native to Italy and their dark, red coloring comes from anthocyanins, an antioxidant that is more common in flowers and fruit, but not citrus fruit. What do blood oranges taste like? These oranges have a unique flavor compared to other oranges, with a strong raspberry-like flavor with undertones of citrus.

Now let’s talk a little about the fragrance oil. Blood Orange fragrance oil works wonderfully in cold process soaping. There is no discoloring, separating or ricing. Also, there is no accelerating so you have time to play when using this citrus fragrance oil in cold process soap. Plus the fragrance will stay strong through it’s cure time! The scent is a perfect orange scent! Bright, crisp and tart with a touch of floral in the base note is the best way to describe this fragrance. We know you will love this scent whether you use it in bath and body products or even in candles! It has a lovely, strong cold and hot throw!

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Before You Start Soaping

Before you get started on your soap making, it is always best to clean and sanitize your work area! Make sure you have washed and dried all your equipment and packing materials. Another good tip is to have all your ingredients and supplies within reaching distance! This helps ensure that as you are working everything is ready and on hand to make the process move smoothly. We strongly suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, face mask and safety glasses. Last but not least, if you are new to cold process soap making click here for basic soap making class. Also, before attempting to make any type of cold process soap, please become familiar with Soap Making Safety Class.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepping the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepping the Embeds

Our first step is preparing the orange slice embeds. You will need to make a total of 16 orange slices and for this your will be using a mini lemon/lime mold from flexiblemolds.com. These molds are perfect for soaping and even candle making. They are durable and clean up quick and easy! So go ahead and chunk up your Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Next,  weigh out 145 grams. After adding the soap chunks to a microwavable bowl and placing it in your microwave, melt the soap using 30 second intervals, stirring the soap each time, until it is completely at a liquid state.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the fragrance and colorOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the fragrance and color

Now that you have your soap melted, will be adding the Blood Orange fragrance and color. So, next, you will weigh out 7 grams of Blood Orange fragrance oil and 3 drops of Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, adding it to the melted soap. Stir this well, making sure the color and fragrance are well blended.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the Embeds

The last step is pouring the soap into the mold. Have your mini lemon/lime mold ready and add the soap to each cavity of the mold. Once you have all the soap poured,  you will now go ahead and spritz the top of the soap with the rubbing alcohol you have ready in a spray bottle. This will help to release any air bubbles. You will let this sit until cool and firm.  You will need to make a total of 16 orange slices.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Removing the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Removing the Embeds

So now that your orange slice embeds are set up, go ahead and remove them from the mold. Next, you will once again use the rubbing alcohol. Spritz your orange slices and sprinkle them with the sugar. The sugar will give your orange slices a candied look!

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Lye Solution

Now you will be starting the lye portion of your soap. First, you will weigh out 260 grams of distilled water in a bowl. Next, using a separate bowl, you will weigh out 95 grams of lye. Then, slowly add the lye to the water. You NEVER want to add the water to the lye! Stir to completely dissolve the lye. Now, set your lye solution aside for the moment and allow it to cool.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your OilsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Oils

At this time, you will prepare your oils while you are waiting for the lye solution to cool. In a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 68 grams of Apricot Kernel Oil, 68 grams of Argan Oil, 68 grams Avocado Oil, 171 grams Coconut Oil-76, 34 grams Grapeseed Oil, 102 grams Shea Butter, 68 grams Palm Oil, 68 grams Olive Oil Pomace, and 34 grams Macadamia Nut Oil. Next, you will melt your oils and once your oils are melted, you will set them aside to cool. You will want to allow both the soaping oils and the lye solution to cool to room temperature. You want the temperature to be within 10 degrees of each other.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your ColorsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Colors

So while you are waiting for your temperatures to drop, you can move ahead and prepare your colorants. First, you will prepare the titanium dioxide. This will be used for the white swirls of soap. In a small bowl, weigh out 5 grams of titanium dioxide. Then, mix that with a small amount of the soaping oils you have prepared to create a paste-like mixture. Mix this well. This will help the titanium dioxide to disperse more easily into the soap batter. You can set this aside for now.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the Sodium Lactate

Next, we will be moving onto the sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is used in cold process soaping to help harden the soap and allow a better release from the soap mold. So, in a small bowl, weigh out 16 grams of sodium lactate and set this aside for the moment.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance OilOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Before we get started on our soap batter, you will want to have your fragrance weighed out and ready to add. So, in one last small bowl, you will weigh out 51 grams of Blood Orange fragrance oil. Set this aside also.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Mixing the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Mixing the Soap Batter

Now we are ready to prepare the soap batter. Your oils and lye solution should be at the temperature stated above. So to the cooled lye solution, add your 16 grams of Sodium Lactate. Carefully, stir your lye solution to incorporate the sodium lactate. Now, slowly add the lye solution to the soaping oils. Then, using your stick blender, emulsify the ingredients together.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding in the Fragrance Oil

Once you have emulsified your soap batter, you will add in the fragrance oil. So to the soap batter, add the 51 grams of Blood Orange Fragrance Oil that you weighed out previously. Then, use your stick blender, incorporate the scent into the batter.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap Batter

Next, we will separate the soap batter for the two colors. So, into your first bowl, weigh out 272 grams of the soap batter into a separate bowl and add in the 5 grams of titanium dioxide we weighed out earlier. You can go ahead and stick blend this to combine.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Coloring the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Coloring the Soap Batter

You will not need to weigh out the remaining batter since this will be one color. So, to the soap batter that is left, add the 1 gram of Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant. Now you can stick blend this to combine.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blending the ColorsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blending the Colors

Now we are ready to combine the two colors together. So to the orange soap batter, add in dollops of the white soap batter. Once you have all the white added into the orange bowl, you will begin to swirl directly in the bowl. You can do this using your spatula, or even a wooden skewer, swirling the white batter into the orange batter.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the SoapOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the Soap

Now you are ready to pour your soap into the mold. Have the mold set in front of you and pour the swirled batter into the mold. Then, gently tap the mold on the table to help remove any air bubbles that may be trapped in the batter and smooth the surface of your soap.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Topping the SoapOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Topping the Soap

Finally, we are ready to add our orange slice embeds to the top of our soap! Take your orange slice melt and pour embeds and arrange them evenly across the top. We found that if we added the slices to the four corners first, it helped keep the other slices evenly spaced out.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Curing Your Soap

When you make any type of cold process soap, you will allow the soap to set up for about 24-48 hours before removing it from the mold. Once you have removed it, cut the soap equally into 16 pieces. Lastly, you will allow the Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap to cure before using or selling.

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!

Raspberry Fragrance OilsRaspberry Fragrance Oils

It’s almost summertime! My favorite season of the year. I adore the sun, the heat, swimming and camping! Also, summer is cookouts, bonfires, ice cream cones and thunderstorms. The list is endless when it comes to summertime activities. Summer also brings out some amazing smells. If you live in the country, on a farm or just like to take a drive through the country, then you are aware of the wide range of smells you can get. There are good smells, like fresh cut hay, fresh cut grass, honeysuckle, and the air after it rains. Then there are some *ahem* not so good smells. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to list those as we are very aware what those might be.  Summer also brings out the gardens of flowers, fruits and vegetables! Sunflowers, raspberries and corn on the cob are just some of the best things about summertime.  Nature’s Garden has just some of the best smelling raspberry fragrance oils. So, if you are looking for some new summertime fragrances to enhance or add to your line of products, we are sure you will find something to help you out!

Turmeric Face Mask RecipeTurmeric Face Mask Recipe

Today, Nature’s Garden is proud to introduce their newest facial recipe, our Turmeric Face Mask Recipe.  We know that turmeric is popular in many Indian dishes, however, Turmeric is wonderful for face masks, scrubs, lotions or even facial toners. Nowadays, facial masks are incredibly popular and they are really so easy to make. It almost seems a shame to buy them when you can create your very own at hardly any cost at all. 

Below, I have given you a brief rundown on turmeric and all its uses and benefits, however, there is so much more! If you want to learn more about turmeric click here to view our free turmeric class. Now, let me tell you a little bit about the recipe. Besides turmeric, this recipe also includes bentonite clay powder and Vitamin E. Only a few ingredients that pack a powerful punch of skin benefits. This face mask would be a wonderful addition to your bath and body product line. Or, even to just create for girlfriends and family members. We are sure they will love it just as much as we do.

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: What is TurmericTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: What is Turmeric

Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, comes from the rhizomes (or roots) of a herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family. It is native to India and Southeast Asia.  In Asia, turmeric is known as “manjal” or even “kasturi manjal”. Much like its cousin the ginger root, Turmeric can be grated and used fresh. Turmeric rhizomes, when not used fresh, will be boiled in water, dried in hot ovens, and then they are ground into the powder that we are all familiar with.

This perennial plants can grow up to over 3 feet tall. It has cylinder-type roots that range in color from yellow to orange. Heavy branches grow up from the roots.

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: What Turmeric Is Used ForTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: What Turmeric Is Used For

Turmeric is most commonly known as a spice used in cooking. If you are familiar with Middle East or South Asian cuisine, then you know the spice very well. With its peppery-like flavor and earthy, mustard-like aroma, it is a popular addition to curries, stocks and sauces. However, turmeric has many beneficial properties in natural cosmetics.  This bright, golden orange powder can be used as a natural colorant in soap. Turmeric has been found to heal and prevent dry skin, treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne, and has anti-aging properties. Turmeric powder can be used in any kind of bath and body product. These include soap, hair conditioners, facial masks, scrubs, lotions, ointments, creams, bath teas, face toners, and even in bath bombs.

Did you know that in India, turmeric is considered holy?

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Ingredients that Nature’s Garden has to offer

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You Will Need

  • Mixing Bowls (you will need one)
  • Scale
  • Mixing Spoons

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

  • 96 grams Turmeric Powder
  • 224 grams Bentonite Clay Powder
  • 24 drops Vitamin E Oil
  • 96 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Turmeric PowderTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Turmeric Powder

So let’s begin now with our turmeric face mask! First, we are going to start with the turmeric powder. So, get your scale out. You will also be using a medium sized bowl. Have your scale tared out. Then, go ahead and weigh out 96 grams of your turmeric powder.

 

 

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Bentonite Clay PowderTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Weigh Out the Bentonite Clay Powder

First, let’s talk about Bentonite Clay Powder. Bentonite is a wonderful addition to any face mask! This type of clay, when used in face masks, helps clean impurities from the skin. When used in soaps, bentonite is good at treating oily skin. Also, when used in bath bombs, it helps harden them. In addition, bentonite is useful in thickening lotions.

So, now we are going to weigh out the bentonite. You will add the clay to the same bowl you have your turmeric powder in. Tare out your scale and to the medium bowl, add 224 grams of bentonite clay. Next, mix the two ingredients together until everything seems evenly dispersed.

 

 

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Add the Vitamin E OilTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Add the Vitamin E Oil

The next ingredient we will be adding is Vitamin E. Vitamin E from Nature’s Garden comes in the purest form, is also known as Tocepherol T-50. This is not tocopherol acetate (the form found in many vitamin E capsules).   Vitamin E is a wonderful antioxidant and is fabulous for your skin.

So, to the bowl containing the powdered ingredients, you will be adding your Vitamin E oil. Using a disposable pipette you will add 24 drops of the Vitamin E oil right on top of the powder. Finally, use a spoon or spatula to mix the ingredients together.

 

Turmeric Face Mask recipe: Packaging your Facial MaskTurmeric Face Mask recipe: Packaging your Facial Mask

For this recipe, we decided to package the powder portion of the face mask and the vegetable glycerin separately. We chose to create the facial mask recipe this way for a couple of reasons. First, creating the facial mask mixture separately without the water you will not need to add a preservative. In addition, you will be able to prepare a quick product for your customers. This recipe can be made in just a few minutes. Each 2 ounce jar will create approximately 4 facial masks.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: The Powdered Portion

Now that your powdered portion is complete, you can begin packaging this portion of the facial mask. So, using a spoon, fill each of your 2 ounce white double wall jars and place a lid on each jar.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: The Liquid PortionTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: The Liquid Portion

The next part of our recipe is the vegetable glycerin. Vegetable Glycerin is a humectant, meaning, it draws moisture to your skin. So by adding vegetable glycerin to this recipe, your skin will be left feeling soft and hydrated.

Next,we will prepare the liquid portion of the facial mask. Water, while it is an ingredient in the recipe, will not be used until you are ready mix and apply the face mask. So, we will prepare eight 1/2 ounce bottles for the vegetable glycerin. To each bottle, add 12 grams of the vegetable glycerin and cap them with the white ribbed lids.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Using Your Facial Mask

As we talked about previously, by mixing this mask on an as needed basis, it will prolong the shelf life and can be made quickly when needed. With that being said, let’s talk about using the mask. It is really a simple process. Also, if you are selling this mask as a product, you can sell the jar and bottle as a set and label it with instructions.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Mixing Your Facial MaskTurmeric Face Mask Recipe: Mixing Your Facial Mask

Finally, you are ready to use your face mask! You will need one of your jars of powder and a bottle of the vegetable glycerin. Lastly, you will need a small mixing bowl. Starting with the powdered mixture. First, to the small bowl, add about 1 Tablespoon of the powder. Next, you will add about 1/2 teaspoon of the vegetable glycerin to the powder. Finally, you will add 2 Tablespoons of distilled water. Mix this together thoroughly.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe: Applying your Facial Mask

Once your ingredients are mixed together nicely, apply a thin layer to your face and kick back and relax for a few. Once the mask has hardened, you can rinse your face off in warm water and see how soft and glowing your skin looks and feels!

Turmeric RecipesTurmeric Recipes

Well, we now know the benefits we can get from turmeric powder on our face. So, how about we take a look at some recipes that we can eat! Just follow this link to Allrecipes.com to see just how many types of dishes turmeric is used in.  There are literally hundreds of recipes that incorporate turmeric in them.  One very popular and well-known way to use turmeric is always curry! Curry is actually not a dish as some people think, but a mixture of many different spices and herbs, turmeric being one of them. The use of the term “curry” is generally limited to dishes prepared in a sauce that is made with the mixture of spices.

Using turmeric in recipes isn’t strictly for savory dishes. Sfoof is a traditional Lebanese dessert cake that uses turmeric. There are also smoothie recipes that use turmeric in them and even in hot drinks that are soothing to your soul.  So as you can see, this spice can be added to any type of recipe, internationally or just in your simple everyday drinks! Some people add it for the taste or color, and there are some people that like the idea of using a natural herb in their diet.

Best Wine Fragrance OilsBest Wine Fragrance Oils

Up until the last 20 years, wine was not very popular. Only in recent years has a “wine-craze” taken over in society. Availability and affordability are the number one reasons why this alcoholic beverage has taken a close second to the sale and production of beer. Nature’s Garden is totally hip to the popularity of “vino”. We have listed below, our best wine fragrance oils.  Some of our fragrances have recipes that incorporate actual wine and of course the fragrance itself to create an amazing bath and body product. How about creating a gift basket of lotion, soap and/or a body scrub all using wine for clients or family members who are wine lovers?  So, go ahead and raise your glass to learning about all our wine-inspired fragrances and their recipes! Cheers!

Did you know? Wine has been around for centuries! Dating back as far as 4100 B.C. the world’s oldest winery was discovered in Armenia. There are basically 5 types of wine; Red, White, Rose, Fruit and Mead (which is a honey wine). These types of wine are based on the grapes that were used to create. Each wine is named after the type of grape that was used to create it.

Best Wine Fragrance Oils: Burgundy Rose

Our first wine fragrance is Burgundy Rose. With this fragrance oil by Natures Garden, romanticism, luxury, and culture combine to produce this luxurious fragrance blend. Sensual burgundy rose with fresh white floral nuances, blend with exquisite burgundy wine, and warmed by precious musk and apple wood. Finally, this rose fragrance can withstand the saponification process without losing its authenticity.

This fragrance did well in our cold process soap testing. There was no ricing, separating or discoloring. There was some accelerating so soaping at room temperature is strongly suggested. The scent held up nice and strong throughout its cure. Burgundy Rose also did well with candles and in bath and body products.

We have a wonderful recipe that uses this romantic fragrance oil. Our Burgundy Rose Bath Milk Soak recipe incorporates powdered goat’s milk. Oat Straw powder with an added touch of rose petals to help boost the floral fragrance. Oat Straw is know for it’s skin rejuvenating and softening properties so it is a perfect addition to this recipe.

Best Wine Fragrances: Cabernet Sauvignon Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Cabernet Sauvignon Fragrance Oil

Cabernet Sauvignon is a very popular seller here at Nature’s Garden. Our fragrance oil is the essence of a sweet aroma of wild grapes enhanced with hints of strawberries and sweet sugary notes with a light alcoholic background. A wonderful aroma of red sweet Cabernet wine. 

This fragrance oil had a decent test run in cold process soap. There was no ricing or accelerating, however, we did experience separating when we placed the batter in the mold. It did combine back together as it solidified. Due to the fact that this fragrance oil has a high vanillin content. We suggest using our Vanilla White color stabilizer to help prevent this. This fragrance oil did well in other bath and body products and in all our candle wax testing.

Do you know? The wine itself is a bold and assertive full bodied wine, best paired with any type of meat dish, barring the spicy ones. Grilled meats and vegetables, hearty stews and meaty types of fish, such as Ahi Tuna or Swordfish, go well with this wine.

 

Best Wine Fragrances: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Christmas Cabernet Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil was designed to capture not just the wine itself, but also the essence of the Christmas season. Cabernet has a classically deep, red color and displays a lovely bouquet of berries and oak. A full-bodied wine with good varietal character and power, it offers rich cherry flavors with excellent balance and a long finish. We have combined this lovely aroma with hints of Christmas time, and created our version of Christmas Cabernet.

Christmas Cabernet did very well in our cold process soap testing. There was no ricing, separating or accelerating. This fragrance oil has a slight vanillin content. It caused our soap to discolor to an olive/tan color. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer would be helpful in preventing discoloring.

We liked this scent so much that we created a beautiful Wine Sugar Scrub recipe that not only has Christmas Cabernet as the star fragrance, but we also used a splash of real wine to help enhance the skin loving qualities of this scrub. This recipe is chock full of moisturizing components such as, cocoa and shea butter, olive oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil and Vitamin E. That’s just the beginning! Your skin will be soft, supple and moisturized, not to mention smelling sweet and yummy!

Do you know? Cabernet is a type of grape that is used in red wine making. The addition of Sauvignon came from an accidental cross-breeding of the wine grapes; Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon was born!

 

Best Wine Fragrances: Merlot Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Merlot Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden has velvety nuances of plums, apples, red raspberries and strawberries which  combine with a light alcoholic and spicy background.

Merlot did wonderful in our cold process soap testing! A soaper’s dream come true! No ricing, separating, or accelerating and no discoloring! The fragrance stayed strong and true throughout it’s cure.

Best Wine Fragrances: Merlot Fragrance OilThis fragrance oil is perfect in our Wine Cold Process soap recipe! This soap has skin loving oils such as, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil and Sunflower Oil. We also incorporated wine in the recipe to be used as part of the water portion! A perfect addition for a true wine inspired soap!

Do you know?  Wine (and grape juice) contain a high content of Resveratrol? Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in the skin of red grapes that has excellent antioxidant qualities. When used in cosmetics, this micronutrient can help protect the skin from UV damage, and reduces the occurrence of age spots. Resveratrol also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and is used in products that fight acne. This amazing product is used in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cosmetic products, and provides anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce swelling.

 

Best Wine Fragrances: NG Napa Valley Harvest Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: NG Nappa Valley Harvest Fragrance Oil

NG Nappa Valley oil by Natures Garden is a beautiful duplication of the Yankee candle scent.  This fragrance is reminiscent of the cultural heritage surrounding Napa Valley, and the effervescence of rich, aged wine. The scent is a complex blend of aged wine, lilac, vanilla, violets, and lilies, with a light musky base note. A definite complex fragrance that is very pleasing to the nose!

NG Nappa Valley Harvest is a winner when it came to our cold process soap testing! There was no ricing, separating, or acceleration. It did discolor to a light butter color so you may chose to use our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help prevent this. This fragrance also did very well in our bath and body product testing and in our candle wax testing!

Do you know? September through November is when the actual Napa Valley Harvest season is. Harvest season is a busy, bustling time with the season’s harvest being brought in and new batches of wine that are being made. Visitors not only get to sample the varieties of the wines that are made, but you can also participate in the picking and the smashing of the grapes!

 

Best Wine Fragrances: Shiraz Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: Shiraz Fragrance Oil

The pronunciation of Shiraz is taken from the original name “Syrah” but for one reason or another, Australians adopted the well known term Shiraz.  The aromas and flavors of Shiraz vary with wine style and region, but are usually blackberry, plums, and pepper in varying degrees dependent on growing conditions.  Natures Garden’s Shiraz fragrance is reminiscent of this prestigious wine.

Shiraz Fragrance Oil did beautifully in our cold process testing. With no accelerating, ricing, seperating or discoloring, it is another soaper’s dream! The scent stayed true and strong througout it’s cure time. Shiraz also did well in all our candle waxes and in bath and body products. With a fragrance oil that does so well, we had to create a recipe with it!

Best Wine Fragrances: Shiraz Fragrance OilOur Wine Lotion recipe is loaded with some amazing skin loving ingredients. Jojoba oil, Cocoa Butter, and Vitamin E to name just a few. Of course we did include our Reservatrol Powder which you know is a wonderful for aging skin!

 

Best Wine Fragrance Oils: Tuscan Wine Fragrance Oil

If you’ve ever dined at an Italian restaurant and drank wine from a flask that was wrapped in straw, you’ve enjoyed Tuscany Chianti wine.  Natures Garden’s Tuscan Wine fragrance is a true luxury fragrance beginning with top notes of black grapes, strawberry, and red wine; followed by middle notes of white flowers and sweet cinnamon; and sits on dry wood notes.

Tuscan Wine did beautifully with cold process soap testing. It had no ricing, separating or accelerating. It did discolor to an olive brown, so Vanillin White Color Stabilizer may be used to help prevent this. The scent retention during and after its cure time was amazing and strong!

Do you know? The straw wrapped wine bottle of Chianti is called a “Fiasco” which in Italian means: bottle or flask.

 

White Zinfandel Wine Fragrance OilBest Wine Fragrance Oils: White Zinfandel Fragrance Oil

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden has the aroma of fruity dry pink wine with undertones of red raspberries, currents, strawberries and rose petals with a light alcoholic background. Zinfandel is the type of grape that is used to make this incredibly popular wine. The “White” part is actually a method of making the wine itself, hence the name White Zinfandel.

 

White Zinfandel tested positive in cold process soap making. With no acceleration, ricing or separation, it is a good soap to play with! No discoloring either which makes this fragrance oil perfect! The scent retention in all bath and body products, candle waxes and even in soaping stayed very strong and true with no fading!

Best Wine Fragrances: White Zinfandel Fragrance OilNature’s Garden created this fun Wine Gel Wax candle recipe using our popular White Zinfandel. This candle is incredibly easy to make using wine glasses as your container and our red Spectrum candle dye. You will have some fun candles to display for any kind of celebration in no time!

Do you know? Back in 1975, Sutter Home’s White Zinfandel experienced a failure which resulted in the White Zinfandel as we know it today? The original wine had a “stuck fermentation” which is a problem that occurs when the yeast in the wine dies out before consuming all the sugar. This accidental juice was set aside and several weeks later, the winemaker tasted it, preferring the result, which was sweet and pink. It was originally called Cabernet Blanc, but eventually the name White Zinfandel was adopted.

 

Best Wine Fragrance Oils: Muscadine Fragrance Oil

Muscadine is a fragrance oil by Natures Garden that is rich in a  wonderful aroma of fresh grapes, blackberries, and woodsy base notes. Much like the wine itself.

This fragrance oil did well in our cold process soap processing. There was no accelerating, separating, or ricing. Despite the fact that there is zero vanillin in the oil, it will discolor to a dark cream. Vanilla White Color stabilizer will not prevent this from happening. Muscadine also did well in candles and in bath and body products for scent retention.

Muscadine grapes are considered America’s “first grape”. They are commonly grown in the hotter, dryer regions of the States. The resulting wine from muscadine grapes result in a sweet, red wine mostly for the reason that winemakers may add sugar to the wine. This wine is known to have a taste of ripe banana, apple, lime peel plus a scent of rubber cement. Wait! What? Rubber Cement? Well, they do say Muscadine wine is an acquired taste so there you go!

99 Ways to Use Lanolin Ways to Use Lanolin

Lanolin is one of those products that you don’t think about, but it is in probably some of the most popular skin care products around. It can also be found in cosmetics, first-aid salves and believe it or not in some industrial grade products such as lubricants and rust-proof coatings.

What’s amazing about this stuff is that it is all natural! It is an oil that comes from the wool of sheep and is nature’s “raincoat” for the animals. Lanolin protects them from all the elements around them; from the dampness of rain and snow to the drying effects of the sun. One of the things that I like about lanolin is that even though it is naturally derived from the wool of sheep, it in no way harms them! It is done cruelty-free! In today’s world of animal’s rights that is a pretty important factor!

Lanolin has the amazing ability to hold up to 400 times its weight in water which means, not only is it a super-moisturizer, but it locks that moisture in and will give you baby soft, supple skin.  Lanolin easily absorbs into the skin, but keep in mind, a little goes a long way!  We have below 9 recipes that incorporate Lanolin in the pure form that is an amazing ingredient to blend into lotions or balms, and Lanolin Oil USP Liquid which is less viscous and is wonderful for soaps and shampoos. We at Nature’s Garden hope you enjoy creating some of these for your family, friends, clients or customers! So here you are, 9 ways to use Lanolin in your creations.

Our first recipe is the perfect balm for your men’s line of bath and body products. Beards and mustaches are incredibly popular among guys today. In many cases, you see more hair on their face than on their head, which may mean something, and I haven’t been able to figure it out yet. At any rate, I do have an idea that their beards can get as unruly head of hair! Beard Balm is a perfect way to tame that facial hair!  With skin healthy oils and butters such as, jojoba oil, olive oil and shea butter and lanolin, their skin will be soft and moisturized as well as their beards and mustaches. Then, add in some Cedarwood Virginia Essential Oil for that woodsy, masculine scent and you will have yourself a best seller among your clients with facial hair!

The first step to having a good beard is to have a good soap. After all, beard is hair and the first step to having good hair is to have a good shampoo, right?

Our Beard Soap recipe is a good start to beard maintenance. It’s a hot process soap that uses liquid lanolin USP which has the same benefits as the lanolin that comes in the more solid form. You also have the nourishing oils and butters of jojoba, sweet almond, and cocoa butter, to just name a few. Your beard will feel soft and moisturized. Not only does this beard soap clean without stripping but it hydrates your beard, and it will do the same to your skin beneath. We used our Gurjun Balsam Essential Oil for a soft, aromatic fragrance that smells woodsy with a tiny bit of sweetness.

You would be surprised at how popular shaving soap really is. In all honesty, using shampoo on your beard is a big no-no! Shampoo is designed to strip all the oils and dirt from the hair.  That is all fine and good for your hair, but it’s not so fine and good for your beard. A dry beard is an itchy beard. You will want your beard moisturized and soft, with all those important skin oils still intact!

Our Cold Process Shaving Soap is the perfect gentle wash to keep your beard happy and healthy looking. We’ve used shea butter, apricot kernel oil and lanolin Oil USP liquid to help keep your beard hydrated and soft. Bentonite clay, which is not just for facial masks, gives this soap a nice glide to the lather and helps if you have oily skin. We’ve chosen our Black Ops fragrance oil that smells like the popular men’s cologne. It has a nice masculine scent of citrus followed by a nice woodsy undertone.
