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!)

Banana Nut Bread FragranceBanana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Every time my mom makes banana nut bread- it’s not long before we’ve eaten it all. To be fair, I eat most of it. It’s absolutely delicious- who could resist the fresh banana and spicy sweet flavor? I’m making myself hungry… This is definitely one of my fragrances. It’s not on my list of favorite fragrances, but picking 10 out of 800+, I was bound to miss some. This delicious bakery scent smells just like the real thing. (There’s even a recipe for banana nut bread on the fragrance oil page–click the picture or the blog title to go there!)

What Does Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil from Natures Garden is the aroma of freshly baked banana nut bread. Not too nutty, with plenty of creamy, ripened banana.  Not surprisingly, this is A Best Seller!

Top Notes:  ripe banana, orange zest, cardamom
Mid Notes:  cinnamon, nutmeg, clove
Base Notes:  vanilla extract, baked bread, crushed pecan

How Do Our Customers Use Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil?

Creating captivating candles! This freshly baked fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sweet, spicy scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestion for candles is to use 2 drops yellow plus a tiny bit* of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of yellow and even smaller amount of brown color block into your melted wax. *It may help to dip the tip of a toothpick into your dye and use that to add a tiny amount of brown to your wax. Anyway, remember not to color your candles with crayons; it will clog the wick!

Inventing inviting room scents! This delicious dessert scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this banana bakery aroma in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Setting up sumptuous soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this authentic, appetizing aroma in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fresh banana bread fragrance caused slight acceleration of CP soap, but no ricing, no separation, and nice, strong scent retention. Cured bars discolored to a brown color. This is possibly due to the 3.31% vanillin content of the fragrance; vanillin can cause shades of brown discoloration in bath and body products- the more vanillin, the darker the brown. If you’d like to combat discoloration, you’re welcome to try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– designed to correct discoloration due to vanilla content. Our soap coloring recommendations are to use yellow and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. You’re also welcome to try natural soap colorants– but be mindful of the information listed on their pages, some soap processes may affect the intended color of your finished product. Also- never use candle dye in bath and body products- or you’ll end up coloring yourself!

Designing delectable body products! This fresh bakery fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes, and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body sprays is 5%.

Lastly, they construct pretty-smelling cleaning products. The maximum recommended usage percentage of this sweet and spicy scent in cleaning products is 5%.
