What Does Grape Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This wonderful fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a strong, sweet and sour grape aroma. Great by itself or use for mixing other complex fragrances.

How Do Our Customers Use Grape Fragrance Oil?

Our customers can use this great grape fragrance oil in a variety of bath and body products that will perform well. First of all, bath gels and bath oils can be created with this fruity scent at a maximum usage rate of 5%. Perfumes and lotions can be created using 5% of this scent, as well, with perfumes performing perfectly.  Additionally, various methods of soap making can use this sweet and sour fragrance oil to make great smelling soaps. One such soap making method that could incorporate this fragrance well is cold process soap making. In fact, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have revealed that our Grape Fragrance Oil will perform fairly well in soap. Although there is some slight acceleration, there will be no ricing and no separation. The final product will discolor to an apricot color with a very strong scent retention. Although Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can prevent discoloration in certain cases, this fragrance oil doesn’t have a vanillin content meaning that this discoloration is due to other ingredients that Vanilla White can’t influence. If you wish to add color to your bath and body products, we suggest using purple liquid soap dye along with blue liquid soap dye in an amount that you desire.  Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products.

Our customers can include this fruity fragrance oil in any of their room scents. Room scent products, such as potpourri and incense, can use up to 50% of this scent. Also, bath oils and bath gels can use up to 5% of this fragrance for bath and body products. Additionally, this fragrance performs nice and strong in aroma beads.

Candles can use up to 10% of this sweet and sour fragrance oil in products that include vegetable waxes and paraffin wax. Also, Joy Wax and WOW wax can include this scent and perform perfectly.

If you wish to add color to your candle creations, then we recommend five drops violet liquid candle dye along with three drops blue liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded violet color block along with blue color block for every four pounds of wax.  Remember to never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

bath bomb recipeHello everyone, my name in Christian.

You are probably wondering where I came from.  Well, this summer in order to save for college in the fall; I am helping out my Aunt and Uncle at Natures Garden.

Recently for the first time, I was approached with a recipe challenge.  I had been asked to make a body product.  I have to admit that I was overwhelmed when I first looked at the recipe.  I had never made a bath bomb, so this was something completely new to me.

I glanced at the recipe and the steps, and then I reaffirmed myself that I could totally accomplish this.  The task at hand did seem excruciatingly daunting.  However, now I can admit that I actually found the process to be a lot easier than I had originally anticipated.

After finding all of the supplies and ingredients that were needed for the recipe, I cleaned up and sanitized my work area.  I was then officially ready to start the process.

In case you are wondering exactly which recipe I created, it was the Cotton Candy Bath Bombs.

Here are the supplies and ingredients that I used:
The Dry Ingredients:
Citric Acid , Corn Starch, Baking Soda, and Bentonite Clay Powder
The Wet Ingredients:
Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, and Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil
As for the color:
Fun Soap Colorants:Neon Pink and Neon Blue
Other Items Needed:
Scale, 4 mixing bowls, witch hazel in a spray bottle, and 8 fillable acrylic ornaments.

And, here is what I did:

making bath bombs

First, in one of your mixing bowls, weigh out and add 292 grams of citric acid, 134 grams of cornstarch, 596 grams of baking soda, and 12 grams of bentonite clay.  Mix.  If you see any clumps, break them up.

 stirring the wet ingredients

Next, in another one of your mixing bowls, weigh out and add 6 grams of castor oil, 2 grams of sweet almond oil, and 40 drops of cotton candy fragrance oil.  Stir these liquids together to incorporate.

dispersing colorant

Now, in the last two remaining bowls, add 150 grams of the dry ingredients mixture to each one.  Then, to one  bowl add 4 grams of neon blue colorant.  To the other bowl add 4 grams of neon pink colorant.  Carefully disperse the color among the dry ingredients using your hands.  

drizzle the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
In a drizzling manner pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Then, using your hands, mix the ingredients together.

crumbly dough consistency

Next, begin to lightly spritz the mixture with witch hazel.  Then stir.  Continue spritzing and stirring until the mixture feels like crumbly dough.

combining the colors
Now, add some of the blue and pink mixtures to the rest of the mixture.  Slightly rotate the mixture, then add more pink and blue.  Continue doing this until all of the colored mixtures are added.

pressing the halves together
Next, get your fillable ornaments and begin pressing the mixture into both halves.  Fill them firmly.  Once filled, spritz both halves with witch hazel, then quickly attach the halves together.

allow your bath bombs to set

Finally, allow your bath bombs to set.  Then, carefully remove them from the mold.

In the end, I found the bath bomb making process to be simple, straight-forward, and actually enjoyable.  I really appreciated the opportunity to watch chemistry at work first hand.  I enjoyed the way my finished bath bombs looked and now know how they are made and used in the real world.
