Clementine Fragrance OilClementine Fragrance Oil- Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Oh my darling! This Nature’s Garden Clementine fragrance oil is absolutely delicious! Not only does this scent resemble a delectable, citrus that one, such as myself, cannot get enough of, but a clementine is the tastier of the citrus family. While a clementine is similar to an orange, it’s sweeter, smaller, easier to peel and all around much more adorable. If you incorporate this enticing fruit fragrance into your recipes, then you are sure to not be disappointed.

What Does Clementine Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a wonderful citrus arrangement including top notes of clementine, tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and lime; with middle notes of ginger, and lime blossoms, and a fresh base note of vanilla bean.  This fragrance really comes alive in wax and body products.

Top Notes:  tangerine, orange, grapefruit, clementine, lime
Mid Notes:  ginger, lime blossoms
Base Notes:  vanilla bean

How Do Our Customers Use Clementine Fragrance Oil?

Foremost, the homemade candle makers and room scenters can use this citrus scent in their candles and wax tarts. Potpourri and Incense can include up to 50% of this fragrance oil in products. If used at no more than 10% in candles that use either paraffin wax or vegetable wax, they will perform perfectly. Further, the scent performs wonderfully in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. If you wish to color a candle, then we recommend using  four drops of orange liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or to shred an ample amount of an orange color block into your melted wax. Remember not to ever use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick. Unfortunately, this scent is not gel wax compatible. However, this scent performs perfectly well in aroma beads.

Second, homemade bath and body crafters can use this fragrance at a maximum of 5%. This includes bath oils, melt and pour soaps, bath gels, and cold process soaps. Homemade cp soap makers may like to know that our cold process soap testing results concluded in no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The fragrance has very strong scent retention in the soaps. Further, we found this scent to smell very true to a sweet, fresh clementine, some may say it’s absolutely to die for! A bar will slightly discolor to a slight beige color. Although there isn’t much discoloration, the .7% vanillin content indicates that vanilla white stabilizer may be able to whiten the slightly off white bar. However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products so testing is recommended. Finally, we recommend using orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for coloring the bars. Remember to ever use candle dye in any body products as it is not body safe.

Last, but not least, there are the various other crafts that can be created. This includes perfumes cleaning products, and lotions, which all allows for up to 5% of this fragrance bin a product. Further, perfumes have been tested to work perfectly well with this scent.

Couture Hotness Fragrance OilCouture Hotness Fragrance Oil– Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Hello, Ladies! Are you ready to make heads turn and jaws drop? I’m assuming you said yes, because who’d say no to drop dead gorgeous. So, why not smell the part? Couture Hotness Fragrance Oil is a scent of feminine power, beauty, and sex appeal with an attractive quality that’s tough to fight. While many may say beauty lies with the perspective of the beholder, it’s pretty tough to deny when you’re this good. Given that your scent is one of the first things to notice and the longest to linger, I’d say the perfect scent is the first step to sexy! While there are a plethora of different choices for your signature scent, this Nature’s Garden rendition of Hot Couture is tough to compete with!

What does Couture Hotness Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A glamorous, sophisticated fragrance oil by Natures Garden that combines top notes of raspberry and bergamot, middle notes of magnolia and jasmine, and base notes of white musk and vetiver.  Very sexy and feminine!  Our rendition of Hot Couture Fragrance.

Top Notes: raspberry, bergamot
Mid Notes: magnolia, jasmine
Base Notes: white musk, vetiver

How Do Our Customers Use Couture Hotness Fragrance Oil?

First, lovely homemade soap makers can use this fragrance at no more than 5% to create fantastic smelling products, whether it be by cold process or melt and pour methods. Our cold processed soap results for this fragrance showed that was a perfect pour! There is no acceleration, no ricing, or no separation for soap containing this feminine fragrance. While the bar will discolor to a butterscotch color, it is possible that vanilla white stabilizer may lighten the color, but you will need to test this. Adding this product may produce a lighter or even white bar, depending on the fragrance. However, this stabilizer only counteracts the discoloration caused by vanilla or vanillin. Since there  are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products, the stabilizer will not work exactly the same for all fragrances. Further, other bath at body products, such as bath oils and gels, work great at concentrations of 5% or lower. For coloring, we recommend that you use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you, never use candle dye in any body products.

Next, candle crafters can use a maximum of 10% in their creations using either vegetable wax or paraffin wax. If you’re deciding to color your products, we suggest using three drops of red liquid candle dye for every four pounds of melted wax. Remember that crayons can not function as a sufficient substitute for actual colorant in your candles as they will clog your wick. However, the use of gel wax is not compatible for creating products using this scent.

Finally, many other creations can be made using this scent as well! Fragrance oil room scenters can use up to 50% in potpourri and incense. Also, Lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products are all safe to use to 5% of this fragrance.

Cannabis Rose Fragrance Cannabis Rose Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Cannabis Rose Fragrance Oil has been reviewed by our customers and the reviews are in!  One customer stated “If you’re looking for a nice grownup rose scent with a touch of a little something extra then this would suit you just fine”.  Did you know?  The plant name cannabis actually came from the Greek Kannabis.  So in staying with the Greek theme, there are several myths that tell the legend of the rose.  The rose was created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers.  She used the body of a lifeless nymph to house the flowers.  She then asked Aphrodite to give the flower beauty and a name, Dionysus to add nectar, giving the flower a sweet scent, and the three Graces to give it charm, brightness, and joy.  Finally, Apollo was asked to shine on the flower, allowing a beautiful bloom.  As for a rose having those pesky thorns, thank Cupid for that.  It is said that one day, busy cupid stopped to smell a rose.  Unknown to him however, a bee was hidden inside.  The agitated bee flew out of the rose and stung cupid.  In a fit of anger, he pulled out his arrow, and shot the rose.  Ever since, thorns have appeared on roses.
