Pumpkin Eggnog FragrancePumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil Spotlight

It’s Autumn and that is the time for pumpkins to shine- and not just the jack-o-lanterns- pumpkin-flavored and -scented products are popping up everywhere this time of year. They seem to be falling out of the sky like the leaves off of trees. But what scent better embodies Fall than a combination of pumpkin and spices? Indulge yourself in everything Autumn with this decadent scent.

What Does Pumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A magical combination of creamy vanilla custard, fresh pumpkin and apple, hints of cinnamon and clove, with subtle base notes of cedar and musk.

How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This fall 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 spicy scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 2 drops orange plus a tiny bit of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or a shred a small amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayons; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This delicious scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Soaps! The maximum usage percentage for this alluring autumn aroma in bath oils, bath gels, and soaps is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance performed well in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and strong scent retention. It did discolor to a brown color. This is likely due to the 4.66% vanillin content of the fragrance. Vanillin has a tendency to discolor bath and body products, the more vanillin, the darker brown the finished product. You’re welcome to try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to combat discoloration; you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions are to use orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Maybe you could even split your batch in half- one half with color stabilizer and orange colorant and leave the other the unaltered beautiful brown. What a beautiful swirled soap that would make! Perfect fall colors. Never color bath and body products with candle dye; you’ll end up coloring yourself!

We’ve also got a wonderful recipe for a Pumpkin Eggnog Foaming Sugar Scrub. You’ll need Pumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil, Whipped Soap Base, Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, Orange Soap Colorant, some jars and lids, and, of course, sugar. If you follow our directions carefully, you’ll have a delicious-smelling scrub that looks like a big jar of pumpkin eggnog with whipped topping. As tempted as you may be- do not eat it! Use it to exfoliate your skin: wet your skin and then gently massage the mixture on the area you wish to target. No need for additional soap- this recipe has soap in it! Be sure to rinse your skin thoroughly afterwards and your skin will feel amazing!

Body products! This seasonal scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in body sprays and lotions is 5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in cleaning products is 5%.

Balsam and Cedar FragranceBalsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We already met our buddy the balsam fir- a.k.a. the Christmas Tree. So what’s the deal with cedar? Cedar wood is used in all sorts of amazing applications from building ships, houses, log cabins, fences, furniture, canoes, and even guitars, to bug repellent. Smells great, too! California incense-cedar is the primary type of wood used for making pencils. This kind of explains why I loved holding pencils under my nose as a kid- cedar wood smells fantastic. And pencil mustaches are cool, too. :{o (That’s a mustachioed smiley. Try holding a pencil between your upper lip and your nose to see what I’m talking about: pencil mustache.)

What Does Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam.  This fragrance is composed of top notes of  orange, raspberry, and plum;  middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth;  base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This fresh forest fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is gel wax compatible! That means you could make some gel candles with embeds (check out our Christmas tree embed molds). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this woodsy aura in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our candle coloring recommendations are 5 drops green plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of green and brown color block into your melted wax. Never color your candles with crayons; it will clog the wick.

Room scents! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sophisticated scent in potpourri and incense is 50%. It comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this complex accord in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance caused slight acceleration in CP soap, but no ricing and no separation. It retained a very strong scent and cured bars discolored to a lavender/tan color. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0%, but there are over 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that can lead to the discoloration of products. Products with high vanillin contents tend to discolor to varying shades of brown, but this one has a tiny bit of purple (I personally think it’s a pretty cute color). Our coloring recommendations are to use green and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. If you’d like to go for a more earthy tone and add some extra nutrients- check out our natural soap colorants. Just be sure to read the descriptions because different soap processes cause different reactions with your herbs and can affect the intended color of your soap. Also- feel free to check out our tree-shaped soap molds!

Body products without the bath! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this interesting aroma in lotions and body-sprays is 5%. It performed perfectly in perfumes.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this evergreen aura in cleaning products is 5%.
