What Does Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a refreshing melody of fruity notes beginning with top notes of grape, orange, lemon, lime, and apple.  Mixing in the middle are notes of pomegranate and blackberries, resting on a dry down of sugar.  This fragrance oil now has a higher level of essential oil content to deliver a juicy scent so genuine, you’ll want to pour a glass of this fragrance oil for yourself!  …But please, do not drink the fragrance oil!

How Do Our Customers Use Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Brighten up any atmosphere with the distinct aromas of citrus fruits, berries, and vanilla! You can use this incredibly juicy fragrance oil in reed diffusers, potpourri, or incense recipes at a rate of 50% for this fragrance.  Additionally, this fragrance provides a very strong scent in aroma beads.

Candles and wax melts can be scented with this bright and vibrant fragrance at a maximum of 10%.  The scent will work wonderfully in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and natural soy waxes.  If you want to color your candles, we would recommend using four drops of Spectrum red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Alternatively, you could color your melted wax with small amounts of shredded red color blocks. Although, you should remember, never use crayons to color your melted wax as they will clog your wick, preventing the candle from burning properly.

Handcrafted perfume recipes, body sprays, and lotions will all perform wonderfully when incorporating this fragrance at 5% of your total recipe.  Also, household cleaning supplies can be created using a maximum fragrance usage of 5%.

Finally, soap makers can use 5% fragrance oil in both cold process soap recipes and melt and pour soap recipes.  Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results show that soaps made with this fragrance oil will have an absolutely delicious scent after curing. Also, there was no ricing.  The soap batter for these amazing soaps had a perfect pour.  There was no acceleration, no separation, and no discoloration after cure.  The scent was nice and strong!  If you wish to color your bath and body products, we would recommend using red soap colorant.  As always, do not use candle dyes in your bath and body products.

cocoa butter Cocoa Butter

For all you crafters out there, do you like to use cocoa butter in your products? Well guess what? We offer cocoa butter here at Nature’s Garden! Awesome right? We offer natural cocoa butter, (not deodorized so that it still smells faintly of chocolate) and we also have deodorized cocoa butter. But hold on, it gets even better! We also offer Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap for all of you soap makers out there!

Cocoa butter is considered a luxury butter that is actually a saturated, very hard fat. It can be used be in very many products. The obvious, chocolate, is just pure delicious. I couldn’t help but mention it, what girl doesn’t love chocolate! Now that I got my chocolate thoughts out, it can also be used in very many of our products here at Nature’s Garden. Cocoa butter can be used in bath and body products such as lip balms, lotions, soaps, scrubs, massage bars, and lip gloss.

There are many benefits to your skin when using cocoa butter in your bath and body products. Cocoa butter is very high in antioxidants which helps fight signs of aging and many skin stressers. Come on ladies, who doesn’t want to look younger? It helps fight signs of aging, how awesome is that? Many people also use cocoa butter to help reduce their stretch marks, however there are no guarantees that it actually helps. Cocoa butter also helps to keep your skin hydrated and some people also use to help with skin irritations like dermatitis and eczema. See why so many bath and body products contain cocoa butter? It’s just amazing!

Our cocoa butter at Nature’s Garden is consisted of many essential fatty acids: palmitic (28%), stearic (33%), linoleic (3%) and oleic (35%). For all the soap makers, when using cocoa butter in your products, make sure to use the right amount. If too much is used, it can result in a very hard and dry soap. Use it in conjunction with unsaturated oils like castor oil or olive oil or with sticky ingredients like lanolin or shea butter. The easiest way to get to our cocoa butter on our website, is to type “cocoa butter” into our search bar at the top of our site. It will take you right to a page titled “Search Results for “Cocoa Butter.”” That page shows all of the cocoa butter products we offer. You can choose from our Golden Natural Cocoa Butter or our Deoderized Cocoa Butter. Our cocoa butter melt and pour is also available on that page as well.

Cocoa butter is awesome to use in your bath and body products! It is a fat actually taken from cocoa beans! Come on ladies, if you don’t already use it, I’m sure you’re dying to now! It actually helps signs of aging and I know you just can’t get the thought of that out of your head! This is a great product to try in your next projects, and watch out for more Enlightened by Layla!
