15 Best St. Patrick's Day Fragrance Oils15 Best St. Patrick’s Day Fragrance Oils

Traditionally, spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 21, but to me the unofficial start to spring is St. Patrick’s day. I think the reason for that is St. Patrick’s Day color is green and the official “flower” is the shamrock and to me that says spring is arriving! What started out as a religious feast day in the 17th century has turned into a worldwide celebration of parades, wearing o’ the green, music, dancing and of course eating corned beef and cabbage! (My personal favorite!) So let’s celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with some fresh new fragrances to add to your line of soaps. Here are Nature’s Garden’s 15 Best  St. Patrick’s Day fragrance oils. Enjoy exploring some fun ways to help inspire you to create.
