Coconut Oil is one of the most popular oils that is used in soap making. It’s very affordable, easy to obtain and it can be very good for the skin and hair. If you love making soap, or are new to soap making, take a look at some of Nature’s Garden’s coconut soap recipes. Not only will you be inspired by the creativity, but you skin will be happy and healthy looking!

Coconut oil is perfect for smoothing out dry, frizzy hair and it is also good for nourishing dry, split ends. If you have a sensitivity to products that contain a lot of chemicals or fragrances, this is a good, natural alternative to lotion or body cream and of course, it’s perfect for hydrating that itchy, dry skin. Since coconut oil contains Vitamin E, it is also perfect for helping to delay the look of wrinkles.

As you may know, there are two types of coconut oil. Nature’s Garden offers Coconut Oil-76 and Fractionated Coconut Oil. Both work equally well in all bath and body products. You may notice that fractionated coconut oil does not solidify like regular coconut oil-76 does. That is because the fatty triglycerides from the oil have been removed and what is left is the clear, liquid form of the coconut oil. This type of coconut oil is perfect for using in massage oils, as a carrier oil for lip gloss or essential oils. Any time you want your product to stay at as a liquid, fractionated coconut oil is the perfect answer.

Coconut Oil-76 is a solid form of and only turns liquid in temperatures of 76 degrees Fahrenheit or above. Coconut oil is popular in any type of soap making, bath and body products and even in cooking. It is also very obtainable in grocery stores, soap making supply stores and at any type of big box store. It also very affordable, which makes it perfect for making soap. Both types of coconut oil will give your soap a wonderful, bubbly lather and can also contribute to making your soap hard and white. Coconut Oil-76 is perfect for any type of cosmetic product or bath and body product, such as a body scrub, that you want to have a solid form to.

It’s almost summertime! My favorite season of the year. I adore the sun, the heat, swimming and camping! Also, summer is cookouts, bonfires, ice cream cones and thunderstorms. The list is endless when it comes to summertime activities. Summer also brings out some amazing smells. If you live in the country, on a farm or just like to take a drive through the country, then you are aware of the wide range of smells you can get. There are good smells, like fresh cut hay, fresh cut grass, honeysuckle, and the air after it rains. Then there are some *ahem* not so good smells. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to list those as we are very aware what those might be.  Summer also brings out the gardens of flowers, fruits and vegetables! Sunflowers, raspberries and corn on the cob are just some of the best things about summertime.  Nature’s Garden has just some of the best smelling raspberry fragrance oils. So, if you are looking for some new summertime fragrances to enhance or add to your line of products, we are sure you will find something to help you out!
