Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil

Snowman Balls Fragrance OilSnowman Balls Fragrance Oil  – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil is a sexy winter time scent created by Natures Garden. This aroma is a blend of sensual, spicy, minty, bubbly, and fruity scents that together create a perfect fragrance oil for combating the wintertime blues. This fragrance oil is a is a delicious and interesting change to the more typical winter, pine tree aroma. We hope that you enjoy this scent and have a great winter!

What Does Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a provocative, racey new approach to preventing the winter time blues.  A FUN fragrance, that is sure to bring smiles to the faces of many sad people!  Let’s face it, you could never have a snowman without first starting with snowballs.
While we were creating this fragrance, many thoughts came to mind, “Why are all snowmen created with obesity problems?”  While all snowmen are created with obvious weight issues, they seem to have very high self-esteems; wearing nothing more than a crocheted scarf and a felt hat. We thought, “If snowmen are going to bare all in public, perhaps these snowmen should be constructed in a more fashionable, sexy, muscular manner”.  Society stresses that women need to be “Skinny Minis” in order to be accepted, so to bring light to the unfair stereotypes placed on human females, we thought we’d symbolize these crazy societal norms with the male snowman race. Plus, don’t forget that Frosty was one magical dude!  If you’re going to be a male snowman, you need to start stepping up your game!  We want to start seeing sexy, magical snowmen in the yards of America!

Many thoughts went into creating our Snowman Balls fragrance, and we think you will be quite inspired by its overall complexity!  Snowman balls fragrance is a sexy, spicy blend of peppercorns, nutmeg, and fresh clove; embodied with notes of elderberries, blackberries, plums, and fresh green oakmoss; with magical, effervescent top notes of carbonated fizzy pop and just a hint of cool mint.   NG Original Scent!

How Do Our Customers Use Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

All kinds of bath and body products can be created using this winter fragrance. Bath oils, lotions, perfumes, bath gels, soaps, and other related products can be scented with a fragrance concentration of 5%. Further, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this fragrance oil is great for this kind of soaping. A batch that uses this scent has no ricing, no separation, and no acceleration. The final product will have a very light beige color in soap and the bars will have a very strong scent. We suggest that you use blue soap colorant in products that use this scent. Just remember that you should never use any candle dyes in any of your body products.

How Do Our Customers Use Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Room scenting products can be created with this fragrance oil. Potpourri and incense can both use up to 50% fragrance. Homemade cleaning products can be created with 5% of this scent. Also, aroma beads will retain a nice and strong scent for this fragrance oil. Furthermore, up to 10% of this fragrance oil can be used to create wax based room scenting products that are made of either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax. Joy wax and wow wax will both perform perfectly for this scent and soy wax will have a nice and strong aroma for this fragrance. We suggest using either one drop of blue liquid candle dye or a small amount of a shredded blue color block for products with this scent.

Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil Play Dough RecipeFinally, this Scented Play Dough Recipe is an easy way to make this kids toy more fun by scenting all the different colors. Not only is this a great and creative way to enhance your child’s play dough, but this super simple craft will smell great too! We hope that your enjoy this idea and feel free to swap fragrance oils for certain colors if you wish.

Scented Play Dough


This entry was posted in crafts to do with your kids, Fragrance Oils, how to make scented play dough, New recipes, scented play dough recipe, wholesale craft supplies and tagged , , , , , on by .

Fragrances like Natures Garden’s Reindeer Poo make really amazing scented childrens play dough!

This weekend was a chilly one.  Snow fell in many areas, and although ours did not stick, we did not go unnoticed.  With the weather not really cooperating, my girls and I were trapped in the house all weekend long.  Not fun!

Needless to say, we were already feeling the walls closing in.  We needed something entertaining to do.  Off to google I went to see if there were any projects we could do to pass the time away.

My girls are huge fans of creative things.  They love to color, draw, build castles with their building blocks, and play with craft dough.  So, at least I knew if I could find something that was hands on, we were in there.  I knew that my mom had made craft dough with the girls before and they had a blast.  I only needed to find a recipe.

After quite a few links, I stumbled upon a great recipe of unscented play dough.  Could this play dough be scented?  Yes it can!

This craft dough is pretty basic and can be colored and scented to extend the wow factor.   My girls selected all the fun Christmas scents, and I double checked to make sure that all of the fragrances were body safe.  I also let them choose the colors for the craft dough.

Here are the supplies that are needed:

8 cups flour- I used the All-purpose kind

8 cups warm water

4 cup salt- the regular table kind

1 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup Cream of Tartar

Latex gloves

5 Glass plates

5 gallon sized Ziploc bags

5 Pipettes

Natures Garden Soap Dyes:  Red,
Blue, Yellow, Green

Natures Garden Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Jack Frost Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Snowman Balls Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Mrs. Claus Cookies Fragrance oil

Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance oil

 

This recipe is for a really large batch, but I wanted to make sure that both girls had a nice amount of craft dough to play with.

 

First: In a large saucepan, mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, water, and vegetable oil together.  Stir.  Place the saucepan on the stovetop and cook over low heat.  Stir occasionally.  You are looking for when the craft dough starts to look like mashed potatoes.  The key to when it is finished is when the dough clumps together and you can pull it from the sides of the saucepan.  You do not want the dough to be sticky though.  Keep the low heat on until the dough appears dry.  You are seeking the same texture as store
bought craft dough.

 

Second:  Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.  You want the craft dough to cool naturally.  It is done when you can touch the dough and it is cool.  While the dough is cooling, wipe down your counter space with warm soapy water.  You want to do this now so that the area is dry for the next step.

 

Third:  Carefully, dump all of the craft dough onto your work space.  Start to knead.  You will knead until the craft dough is smooth.  It will almost have a silky feel to it.

 

Four:  Divide it up.  Since we are making 5 different scents and colors, you will want to separate the dough as evenly as possible
into 5 large balls.  Please note, one of the balls will be uncolored, this will be your cream color.

 

Five:  Once you have all of the balls, using your index finger poke a hole into it.  You are going to use this hole for your soap dye coloring.  One color designated per ball.  I would suggest doing this step one ball at a time.

 

Six:  Put on your latex gloves.  Take one glass plate and place a ball on it.  Carefully, start to knead the ball on the plate.  Keep
kneading until the color is consistent throughout the entire dough portion.  If you need to go bolder on the color, just recreate the ball and hole and start over again.  The tip here is do not be afraid to knead your heart out in this step.  Repeat this step for each color until you have all colors completed.

 

Seven: Once you are happy with your new bright and beautiful dough colors, stick each one individually in a gallon Ziploc bag.  It
is time to get your scent on in the next step.

 

Pause- Here is our scent to color break down we used:

RED- Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin Fragrance oil

BLUE- Jack Frost Fragrance oil

CREAM (uncolored)- Snowman Balls Fragrance oil

GREEN- Mrs. Claus Cookies Fragrance oil

YELLOW-Reindeer Poo Fragrance oil

 

Eight: Using one pipette per dough bag, drip 2ml of the fragrance into the Ziploc bag and sealshut.  Knead again, but do it in the
Ziploc bag until all of the fragrance is absorbed.  Repeat for the remaining 4 dough bags.

 

Nine: Get crafty and have some fun!  When you are finished, store left over craft dough in Ziploc bags.

 

This was really a ton of fun to do.  My girls had a blast making it and playing with it. This is something that is fun, easy, and way cheaper than the store bought.

 

Caution:  Because the craft dough is scented with fragrance oil, make sure that any surface that is used with making or playing
with it is safe for fragrance.  Fragrance can ruin wood stained areas.  Scented play dough contains fragrance;  do not allow children to eat the play dough!

 

Fragrance & Fun For Everyone!
