Bubblegum Fragrance OilBubblegum Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Hubba Hubba, Bubblegum Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is sure to bring back some sweet childhood memories with its pleasing, classic pink bubblegum smell.  I’m having flashbacks of my adolescent days just writing about this Bubblegum Fragrance Oil.  I grew up with Hubba Bubba, do you remember those big pink chucks of Original bubblegum?  There were 5 chunks in each pack.  Each chunk of heaven was individually wrapped and as soon as you opened the package, not to mention the wrapper, the sweet bubblegum aroma hit your nose.  It not only made your nose crinkle with excitement, but it made your mouth water as well!  YUMMY!  Growing up, Hubba Bubba was my absolute favorite bubblegum, but I need mention Bubblicious, competitor to Hubba Bubba, which in my opinion both brands were amazingly good.  Fun fact, Bubblicious had a flavor named “Lightning Lemonade” that was discontinued, but then later reintroduced with an element of raspberry flavoring and named “LeBron’s Lightning Lemonade”.  Any guesses on which LeBron that may be??  If you guessed Cleveland Cavs, LeBron James, you are correct.  Go Cavs!

What Does Bubblegum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an aroma of a sweet, juicy childhood bubblegum.

Blackberry Jam FragranceBlackberry Jam Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil is a bestselling fragrance.  One might ask “what is the difference between jam and jelly.  Jam, jelly and preserves are all made with fruit that is mixed with sugar and pectin, an indigestible carbohydrate or fiber.  Pectin can be found in the cell walls of most fruit.  When heated with sugar in water, it gels, giving jam, jelly and preserves their thickness.  Jam is made from the crushed pulp of the fruit while jelly is made strictly from the juice of the fruit.  And in preserves, the fruit comes from chunks in a syrup.  You can tell the difference between jam and jelly by sight as jelly spreads pretty evenly and jam will tend to be a little lumpy.

Would you like to your own homemade blackberry jam?  Using the ingredients below and following the 10 steps below, it’s super easy.

What you will need:

5 cups of crushed blackberry (do not puree)

7 cups of sugar

1 package of fruit jell pectin

Step 1:  Very carefully measure out the blackberries

Step 2:  Place the blackberries into a very large pot

Step 3:  Add the pectin to the blackberries in the pot, stirring constantly

Step 4:  Heat the blackberry and pectin mixture on high, while constantly stirring until the it comes to a full boil

Step 5:  Pour all 7 cups of sugar into the pot and stir

Step 6:  Stir constantly as you bring the mixture back to a boil and allow to boil for one minute and then remove from heat

Step 7:  Ladle the mixture into your jars leaving a 1/4″ space at the top

Step 8:  Wipe the rim of the jars and place the canning tops on firmly

Step 9:  Place all of the jars in a canner with very hot water and make sure the water is 1″ above the tops of the jars, leaving them in the water for 10 minutes

Step 10:  Remove the jars from the water.  Then allow the jars to sit untouched for 12 hours.  In 12 hours, you may open and enjoy!!

Blood Orange FragranceBlood Orange Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Blood Orange Fragrance Oil is inspired by an actual fruit.  The blood orange is a natural mutation of the orange.  While they originated in Sicily, southern Italy and Spain, some are grown in California.  Blood oranges do not sound appetizing, but they are juicy and sweet with a dark red anterior.  They are “bloody” due to the pigment anthocyanin, which is also found in cherries and red cabbage.  Reportedly, anthocyanin has many health benefits due to it being a powerful antioxidant that can slow or prevent the growth of cancer cells–and even kill them.  By the same token, blood oranges are noted for high amounts of Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamin A, iron, calcium, and even fiber.  They are sweeter than oranges and less acidic.  The blood orange juice should be consumed the same day it is juiced as it ferments quickly.  They are in season from December to May.  When purchasing blood oranges, you want to look for ones that heavier for their size and firm to the touch.

What Does Blood Orange Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Blood Orange Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden can be described as a tangy, juicy orange scent with just a touch of floral thyme.

Never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.  For homemade bath and body products, red liquid soap colorant and orange liquid soap colorant in the amount you desire.  Never use candle dye in any body products.

How do you prefer to change the aroma of your home?  Is it through potpourri and/or incense or through different cleaning products.  Potpourri and/or incense have a maximum usage of 50% while cleaning products have a maximum usage of 5%.  For a quick air freshener, add a few drops of this oil to a spray bottle of water and spray the rooms that need a pick me up.

I think my next project will be homemade candles!  For homemade candles, the maximum usage is 10%.  Blood Orange Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.

For all the goddesses who prefer homemade soaps and bath and body products, the maximum usage is 5%.  Cold process soap testing was performed by our staff.  The results showed, a perfect pour and no ricing, no acceleration, no separation,  and no discoloration.  Blood Orange Fragrance Oil has great scent retention.  The use of stick blenders can help to incorporate fragrance back into the soap in the event that it rices during the mixing process.  Also, soaping at room temperature can help to reduce the likelihood of accelerated trace.  Blood Orange Fragrance Oil performed well in bath oils, bath gels, and lotions and performed perfectly in perfumes.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrubs

Pumpkin Spice ScrubsWhat a fun time I had with the Pumpkin Sugar Scrubs Recipe as my first solo attempt at melt and pour homemade soap making.  We have a wide variety of pumpkin products such as molds, pumpkin fragrance oils, pumpkin powders, and even pumpkin recipes to satisfy your craving for this seasonal scent.  For now, I’m all about making melt and pour soaps and learning all I can about the different products here at Natures Garden, learning the techniques, and trying out the fabulous recipes.  I decided that making small, solid pumpkin sugar scrubs as my first official project was appropriate for this time of year.

I am brand-spanking-new to the wonderful world of soap making and part of the fun is figuring it out! I did some research on Pinterest and looked over a couple of our solid sugar scrubs recipes before coming up with this ridiculously fun recipe:

Ingredients used:                                                                                            

 

Tools needed:Silicone Soap Mold - 24 Mini Pumpkins

I included turmeric and carrot powder in the recipe both for their coloring properties and skin-loving benefits.  As this was my first attempt to make this recipe, I carefully prepped my work area and laid out all of the ingredients and tools I would need for this recipe.   Below is the step-by-step instructions that I followed:

Step 11. Place the silicone pumpkin soap mold off to the side.
2. Measure out your powders! I did this by placing one of my glass measuring containers on the scale, taring it to 0, then adding my powders one at a time (tare in between the powders if you’d prefer not to do any math).
3. Add 30g vegetable glycerin to your small glass bowl with your powders and stir until it is thoroughly mixed and you have created a paste free of lumps.  Place to the side.
4. Measure out your sugar and place to the side.
5. Measure out your oils.
6. Cut 175g of your melt and pour base and place in you microwavable bowl.
7. Microwave your soap in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, making sure it is melted. If you have a more powerful microwave, you can do it for shorter bursts of time.
8. Once that soap is completely melted, add your Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance oil and your sweet almond and pumpkin seed oil; stir thoroughly.
9. Then pour your powder paste and add your 20 drops of orange oxide into the bowl all while its wet.Step 4
10. Then add the sugar and stir, stir, stir.
11. Once you’ve completely mixed your soap, oils, and sugar pour mixture into the mold and allow the little pumpkin bars (this recipe makes about 24) to set up for 4 hours. Ta-da!

Things got a little weird for me around step 11.   As I was mixing the mixture, it began to harden.  As you will see in the picture, I attempted to pack the mold versus pouring.  I decided to go ahead and re-heat it in the microwave for another 30 seconds.  When I took it out, it was a thick liquid that I stirred with the spatula (just to remix) and then began to poor into the mold.  It poured beautifully into each mold.  As excited as I was that this project seemed to turn out just right , I immediately decided it was time to put them to the true test.  I used a couple of these and they worked really well!  The bar held its shape despite the fact that anytime you add water to sugar, it breaks it down.  I hope you have as much fun as I did using this recipe.

Pumpkin Roll FragrancePumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Pumpkin Roll is an amazing dessert generally reserved for Fall time. The whole season is a big ol’ pumpkin party. This delicious treat is made using pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, and sugar, then covered in a mix of cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar before being rolled into the shape that gives it its name. The Pumpkin Roll is also the name of an annual class prank played by seniors of Chagrin Falls High School (Ohio) in which they dump pumpkins down Grove Hill (the steepest part of Main Street) and it has evolved to include students sledding down the hill after their pumpkins. This has been an annual tradition since 1969. I personally prefer delicious pumpkin dessert to potentially dangerous pumpkin-related high jinks.

What Does Pumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Comfort food at its best: sweet sugar pumpkin puree spiced with hints of cinnamon, and nutmeg layered onto a warm, sweet-butter crust, drizzled with maple and honey. Yummy!

Bay Rum FragranceBay Rum Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Ahoy, mateys! Rum is commonly thought of as the drink of choice of pirates. And why wouldn’t it be? They made careers off of rum-running: transporting alcohol overseas to colonies where drinking was prohibited. Pirates often consumed rum as bumbo- a drink made from rum, water, sugar, and nutmeg or cinnamon.

Bay Rum, more specifically, is a product with high-alcohol content made in the Caribbean using rum and the leaves or berries of the appropriately named bay rum tree. It’s often used in aftershave, cologne, and lotions (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, you can use this fragrance oil to make your own). Not as pirate-y, but I already wrote most of this post with pirates in mind, so I’m gonna leave it as is. And surely, pirates had to shave their faces, too? (Unless their pirate name had the word “beard” in it.) Why not with bay rum-scented products?

What Does Bay Rum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

It be a spicy, cultural blend of crushed cloves, cinnamon sticks, patchouli, and crisp pine needles, with a sweet orange freshness.

Mid Notes:  cinnamon, clove, cool mint

We already met our buddy the balsam fir- a.k.a. the Christmas Tree. So what’s the deal with cedar? Cedar wood is used in all sorts of amazing applications from building ships, houses, log cabins, fences, furniture, canoes, and even guitars, to bug repellent. Smells great, too! California incense-cedar is the primary type of wood used for making pencils. This kind of explains why I loved holding pencils under my nose as a kid- cedar wood smells fantastic. And pencil mustaches are cool, too. :{o (That’s a mustachioed smiley. Try holding a pencil between your upper lip and your nose to see what I’m talking about: pencil mustache.)

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This fresh forest fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is gel wax compatible! That means you could make some gel candles with embeds (check out our Christmas tree embed molds). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this woodsy aura in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our candle coloring recommendations are 5 drops green plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of green and brown color block into your melted wax. Never color your candles with crayons; it will clog the wick.

Room scents! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sophisticated scent in potpourri and incense is 50%. It comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this complex accord in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance caused slight acceleration in CP soap, but no ricing and no separation. It retained a very strong scent and cured bars discolored to a lavender/tan color. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0%, but there are over 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that can lead to the discoloration of products. Products with high vanillin contents tend to discolor to varying shades of brown, but this one has a tiny bit of purple (I personally think it’s a pretty cute color). Our coloring recommendations are to use green and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. If you’d like to go for a more earthy tone and add some extra nutrients- check out our natural soap colorants. Just be sure to read the descriptions because different soap processes cause different reactions with your herbs and can affect the intended color of your soap. Also- feel free to check out our tree-shaped soap molds!

Body products without the bath! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this interesting aroma in lotions and body-sprays is 5%. It performed perfectly in perfumes.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this evergreen aura in cleaning products is 5%.
