Fall-FragrancesFall Fragrances for Candlemaking

It’s Autumn– time to decorate your home in warm, earthy tones, but no home is completely decorated without the soft glow of candlelight and a house-warming scent. (Save the unscented candles for your jack-o-lanterns outside and be sure to brush up on your candle safety!) We’ve got lots of fun festive fall fragrances at Nature’s Garden, but some were created specifically with creating scented candles in mind– these oils are not body safe. They still smell amazing- we just don’t recommend using them in any bath and/or body products. Here are three exceptional autumn aromas you can use to make delightful decorative candles, classic candle wax tarts, or relaxing, robust room scents!

Harvest Type Fragrance Harvest Type Fragrance Oil

A spicy blend of cinnamon bark and clove bud on a dry down of musk. A simple yet sophisticated seasonal scent. Maximum recommended usage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestions are 4 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of orange and brown color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum recommended usage in room scenting applications is 50%.

Mulled Cider FragranceMulled Cider Fragrance Oil

Strong base notes of ripened apples and oakmoss with a complex blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange zests, lemon peel, and a touch of tart lychee berries and coumarin. Maximum usage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestions are to use 6 drops red plus 2 drops brown liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of red and brown color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum usage in room scents: 50%.

Pumpkin Pie Spice FragrancePumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil

The aroma of sweet cream pumpkin, complimented with nuances of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and ginger; rounded out with buttery vanilla notes. Maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Coloring suggestions: 4 drops orange liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of orange color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum usage percentage in room scenting applications: 19.7%.

We’ve got some cute fall-themed molds that you could use to make candle potpourri tarts: pumpkins (of course), small leaves, oak leaves and acorns, and for Halloween: the BOO mold!

For room scenting applications: try aroma beads or a reed stick diffuser kit.

You could also try dipping colorful fall leaves in scented wax to preserve them and use as decoration– just be sure to set them in a glass or metal dish because fragrance oil may have an adverse reaction with the surfaces of your furniture.

If you’re absolutely aching to make pumpkin-pie-spice-scented bath and body products, try our Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder— it’s safe for use in bath and body products. I even used it as an ingredient in my first ever sugar scrub; I can attest to its amazing aroma. Need that vanilla kick? Try adding some Vanilla Powder or Natural Vanilla Infusion. (I used the vanilla oil in my sugar scrub recipe- smells great!) Now what about the pumpkin part? Try adding pumpkin puree! (Everything mentioned in this paragraph is body safe- but don’t put any of it in your candles!)

Apples and Oak Fragrance

Apples and Oak FragranceApples and Oak Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Smelling this fragrance oil will make you feel as if you’re eating a giant, juicy apple while sitting under an awesome oak tree. Oh, oaks. Oaks are big, beautiful trees that provide an immense amount of shade. You might have seen them in your yard or a park; they’re quite popular in recreational areas. Oaks are also a symbol of strength, and let me tell you, this is a strong, beautiful scent. The wood from oak trees is used to make wine barrels and the bark of cork oak is used to make wine stoppers. The oak barrels add an extra richness to these wines. (We’ve got wine scents, too!) In 2004, the United States Congress officially designated the oak as America’s National Tree. So what could be more American than apples and oak? (Baseball?) There are even famous oak trees that are estimated to be hundreds- if not over a thousand- years old.  Acorns also come from oaks, and if you’re looking for an acorn fragrance without the apples, we’ve got that, too: Acorn Harvest Fragrance Oil.

What Does Apples and Oak Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A truly complex fragrance blend of McIntosh and Granny Smith apples, with notes of woodsy fresh oak leaves and oak moss.

How Do Our Customers Use Apples and Oak Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This ideal autumn aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and comes across nice and strong in soy wax. It is gel wax compatible! The maximum recommended usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our candle coloring suggestions are to use six drops of red and two drops of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of cinnamon color block into your melted wax.

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fresh fall fragrance oil in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. With a vanillin content of 0%, this fragrance is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products. And guess what? Our CP Soap testing results found just that: no discoloration, no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and a very strong and lasting scent retention (strong and lasting, much like the oak tree itself). Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

As far as soap molds go, we’ve got a pretty neat 3D Apple Mold if you’d like to make apple-shaped, apples-and-oak-scented soap. We’ve also got cute little Oak Leaves & Acorns molds if you’d like to make small oak-leaf-  or acorn-shaped soaps. This mold also works for candle embeds, which works wonderfully with this gel wax compatible fragrance!

Lotions and perfumes! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sweet scent in lotions and perfumes is 5%. This oaky aroma performs perfectly in perfumes.

Room scents! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this Apples and Oak fragrance oil in incense and potpourri is 50%. This scent came across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Oaky dokey; have fun!
