Kumquat Fragrance OilKumquat Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Kumquat Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is the citrusy aroma of fresh Kumquat.  This delicious-smelling scent is perfect for creating bright, juicy products that will immediately catch your customers’ attention.  The name “kumquat” is derived from the Cantonese word for this lovely citrus fruit, which is pronounced “gam gwat,” and translates to “golden tangerine.”  The kumquat is native to south Asia and the Asia-Pacific region.  The earliest recorded reference to the kumquat dates back to the 12th century, although the citrus fruit was not introduced to Europe and North America until 1846.  The bright citrus fruit has been a favorite of people worldwide for centuries, and is still a favorite of Nature’s Garden customers.  One valued customer from Utica, IL writes “Hands down my #1 best seller. Can’t rave about it enough! I have used it successfully in CP soap, bathbombs, soy candles, lotion and sugar scrub. It is very hard to keep on my shelf!”  No matter what project you are taking on, Kumquat Fragrance Oil is an excellent addition to your recipe!
