As you gaze into an ocean bluer than the sky, there’s a hint of a soft, salty breeze rolling onto the coast. This wind brings the aroma of coconuts, pineapples, and all sorts of tropical love. You tip your head back to soak in the sun and think “what could be better than this”?

How Do Our Customers Use Caribbean Fragrance Oil?

Many of Natures Garden’s customers use our products to create their own unique candles. Candle crafters can use this fragrance in either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax at no more than 10%. This scent has been found to perform perfectly in joy wax and wow wax. Further, it is nice and strong in soy wax. We suggest three drops of yellow liquid candle dye for every four pounds of wax. Alternatively, shredding a small amount of a yellow color block into your melted wax can produce a desirable color as well. Note that you should never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Numerous customers use our products to craft their very own bath and body products that smell great. Bath and body products perform well when using this tropical scent at no more than a recommended 5%. Soap makers can use Caribbean Fragrance in either melt and pour soap or cold process soap a recommended 5% of the weight for total recipe. Our cold process soap results revealed this scent to perform well in cold process soap recipes. We found no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation for this fragrance. Also, this bar will discolor to a brown and have a strong scent retention. Since the vanillin content is 5%, using a vanilla white stabilizer will create a lighter bar. Although the vanillin content is high and contributes to discoloration, you may not be able to obtain an entirely white bar. This is because more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products. We recommend using yellow soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for your homemade bath and body products. Remember to never use candle dye in any bath and body products.

Various customers use our products to make homemade cleaners, lotions, perfumes, and room scents. Homemade room scenters can use this fragrance at a maximum of 50% in potpourri and incense.

A bar using this scent has the potential to discolor to a beige and will maintain a light scent retention. However, a lighter bar is possible for those who desire one. Since the vanillin content is 2.6%, vanilla white stabilizer can be used to achieve a lighter bar. Further, we recommend using brown soap colorant and orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for this fragrance. Never use candle dye in any body products.

Lastly, do-it-yourself room scenters can use this scent at a 50% usage rate for potpourri, reed diffusers, or incense.

Try saying that three times fast; it’s a mouthful! Apple Happy Camper Candy is fun to say, delicious to eat, and makes a great fragrance oil for use in all of your homemade products! You probably already know, but remember to never eat fragrance oil, and keep this away from your kids in case they mistake it for actual candy. It does smell just like the real thing- so that could be an easy mistake to make. But now you can take this sweet scent and use it in your home decor and fantastic bath and body products. Feel the joy of eating delicious green apple candy whenever you light a candle or use homemade soap!

Middle Notes: Juicy Pear, Nectarine, Strawberry

Best of all- it’s a Nature’s Garden original scent!

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Happy Camper Candy Fragrance Oil?

Candles, of course! This appetizing apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Unfortunately, this fun fragrance is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are to use one drop of green liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or to shred an ample amount of green color block into your melted wax. The childlike wonder that this scent inspires may ignite the desire to color your candles with crayons- but don’t! Coloring with crayons will clog the wick- for best results use dye or color block.

Soaps, silly! This energetic essence performs well in bath and body products. Use them in the shower to awaken that inner sugar rush without the tummy ache! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this overjoyed odor in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results found no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, very strong scent retention, and slight discoloration to a light tan. To see exactly what I mean- check out the fragrance oil page or watch our CP soap testing video– results included! The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0.4%, so it may have a tendency to discolor your bath and body products. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help combat this problem, but you are ultimately responsible for the results. Our coloring recommendations for soaps are to use green soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

Lovely lotions and pretty perfumes! This fun fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and perfumes is 5%.

And finally, refreshing room scents! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this amazing apple aura in incense and potpourri is 50%. The sweet scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Apple Crisp Fragrance

Apple Crisp FragranceApple Crisp Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Why not warm up to a freshly-baked apple aroma just in time for autumn? We’ve got plenty of them, and they all smell awesome. Apple Crisp- the food- is baked apples topped with streusel. If you click the link in the title, there’s a sweet free Apple Crisp recipe on our Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil page. Mmm. Remember to never ever eat fragrance oil. Also remember that once you use a baking pan, measuring utensil, or any other kitchen supplies to make soap, candles, anything with chemicals, fragrance oils or dyes, don’t use it again for baking. It’s no longer food safe. Even if you wash it, chemical residue may still remain, and can get into your food. Blech. So buy two adorable kitchen sets- one for making your delicious apple crisp, and the other for making your delicious-smelling Apple Crisp-scented candles/soaps/lotions/perfumes/room-scents.

What Does Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of a red juicy apple combined with buttercream and cinnamon with a base note of a baked oatmeal cookie.

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil?

Candles? Of course. This alluring apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for this sweet spicy scent are to use 3 drops of burgundy, plus 3 drops red, plus one drop brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Or if you prefer to use color block, we suggest shredding ample amounts of burgundy, red, and cinnamon into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayon- it will clog your wick!

Soaps? Certainly. The maximum usage percentage of this bakery scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 1%. Cold process soap testing results show that this apple aura is ideal for CP soap: no acceleration; no separation; no ricing; good scent retention. The vanillin content of this freshly-baked fruit fragrance is 3%- so it may have the tendency to discolor your bath and body products. In fact, our cold process soap testing results found that it discolored soap to a very light tan color. If you wish to combat this- try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It’s not a guarantee, but it may help. Ultimately, you are responsible for the results in your finished product. Anyway, we recommend coloring your bath and body products scented with Apple Crisp fragrance by using burgundy soap dye (on clearance!) in the amount that satisfies you. But in case we run out of that by the time you read this blog post, perhaps mix a little Red Oxide and Brown Oxide FUN soap colorant to create an apple cinnamon-y color.

Can I rub it on my body? Sure, if you make lotions or perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 0.5%- measure carefully. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Can I rub it on the WORLD?! Uh.. sure. Just be responsible about it. The maximum recommended usage percentage for incense and potpourri is 50%. and this scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Almond Rum Cake FragranceAlmond Rum Cake Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We sure have a lot of bakery scents. I’ve already talked extensively about the almonds themselves, and the small eternity it takes to make Amish friendship bread and fruitcake. Thankfully, almond rum cake only takes less than an hour to make. Maybe longer if you’re a less experienced baker. But still- far less than 10 days or a whole month. Relatively speaking, this is fast food. Check out our free Almond Rum Cake recipe on the fragrance oil page. Make yourself a tasty Almond Rum Cake and then use our fragrance oil to preserve those sweet memories in your soap, candles, bath and body products, and room scents. Just never, ever eat fragrance oil.

What Does Almond Rum Cake Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is a scrumptious bakery arrangement beginning with top notes of almond extract, chopped almonds, and dark rum; followed by middle notes of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and heavy cream; well-rounded with base notes of butter and cake batter. I don’t know about you, but just reading that makes me hungry. This is also a Nature’s Garden original scent. You’re welcome.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Rum Cake Fragrance Oil?

They make some super sweet scented candles. Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Unfortunately, it is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of brown liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded brown color block per four pounds of wax. Don’t use crayons to color candles- you’ll clog the wick, you silly goose!

They also make some super sweet scented soaps. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results showed that in CP soap, Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil causes no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation, and has good scent retention. It does, however, discolor to a light brown. Our soap coloring recommendations are: none! The vaniilin content of this fragrance is 3.25% so it will slightly discolor your soap and other bath and body products. I say it makes it look more like almonds- right? If you do not want this discoloration, feel free to try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but keep in mind that it’s your responsibility to test it in your product- color stabilizer is not a guarantee. We’ve got some cute little bundt cake molds if you want to make your soap look more cake-shaped.

What else? Perfumes and lotions? You bet! Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil performs perfectly in perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage of this fragrance for lotions and perfumes is 1.1%.

What’s left? Room scents, my friend. Sweet, sweet Rum Cake room scents. Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. The maximum usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.

amish friendship bread fragranceAmish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

What is Amish Friendship Bread? It’s a recipe for sweet, fruity bread passed from friend to friend that apparently takes 10 days to make. Some say this is a throwback to a simpler time before instant gratification spoiled us rotten and makes us appreciate waiting 10 days for bread. Better than waiting for a fruitcake to cure for at least a month, I guess. Color me confused because I don’t understand why a group of people who can raise a barn in a day need 10 days to make bread. I mean no offense to the Amish and if an Amish person is reading this, please email me at [email protected] and enlighten me on friendship bread and why you’re using the Internet. Maybe we could be friends and make each other bread.

What Does Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Smell Like?

Believe it or not: bread. This scent has a freshly baked bread character and sweet notes of raisin and strawberries, with hints of nut. Just like yummy, tasty fruit-nut bread. (Banana Nut Bread represent! Not entirely relevant here, I just really like Banana Nut Bread. No bananas in Amish Friendship Bread.)

How Do Our Customers Use Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil?

They make candles! Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Recommended maximum usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. As for candle coloring, we recommend using 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax OR you can shred a small amount of a brown color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use a crayon to color your candle– it will clog your wick!

They also make soaps! Our maximum recommended usage percentage for Amish Friendship Bread is 5% in soaps. Our cold process soap testing results show that it performs well in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation, with good scent retention. It does, however, discolor to a chocolate color. Our coloring recommendations are.. none. We also have a square loaf mold if you want to make your soap look bread-shaped.

They also make bath and body products and perfumes! Recommended maximum usage for these products is 5%. Amish Friendship Bread performs perfectly in perfumes (try saying that ten times fast) and performs well in bath and body products. With a high Vanillin Content (6.7%) this fragrance oil may discolor your bath and body products as well. You can try some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer if you feel so inclined, but remember that it’s up to you to test how the color stabilizer works with this fragrance oil in your product.

And room scents.  Recommended maximum usage for this fragrance in potpourri and incense is 50%. Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil is also nice and strong in aroma beads.

So there you have it- you can make all kinds of fun stuff with Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil but it won’t take you ten days to do it! (Though you may need to wait a few weeks for your soap to cure, but you’re not going to eat it. Don’t eat it. Doesn’t matter how good it smells.) Goes great in gifts you’re making for friends! Friendship!
