Boston Tea Party FragranceBoston Tea Party Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden was inspired by our very own American History.  On December 16, 1773, the colonists protested against taxation without representation by the British Government;  they were throwing shipments of tea into the Boston Harbor.  This was a key event that lead to the American Revolution.  In 2009, groups of Americans, in cities all over the USA, began throwing modern-day Tea Party Protests to denounce government spending, taxation, and the erosion of our constitution.  Although these protests were not commonly reported on the news, they are indeed gaining in momentum.  Due to the love we have for our country and for our constitution, we here at Natures Garden decided to create a fragrance called the Boston Tea Party.

What Does Boston Tea Party Fragrance Smell Like?

By partying, of course!!  Our homemade soap makers are invited to celebrate by using the maximum of usage rate of 5%, which is the same for homemade bath and body products as well.  Cold process soap testing results show that the Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil had no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation.  It discolored to a cream color and has a strong scent retention.  Suggested color for your homemade soaps and bath and body products are to use brown soap colorant, yellow soap colorant, and orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.  Never use candle dye in any body products.   This tea fragrance oil performed perfectly in perfumes and as for other bath and body products, it performed well.

Next, for our candle crafters, homemade candles can be made using Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil, with a maximum usage rate of 10%.  Boston Tea Party Fragrance Oil is nice and strong in soy wax, it also performs perfectly in other waxes such as joy wax and wow wax.  Let’s not forget to mention how wonderful it is for candle wax tarts using Natures Garden’s pillar of bliss wax.  Color suggestions for homemade candles are use 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye plus a little bit of yellow liquid candle dye and orange liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of a brown, yellow, & orange color block into your melted wax.  Never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

The party would not be complete without our home scenters!  The maximum usage for homemade cleaning products is 5% and the maximum usage for room scenting products such as potpourri, reed diffusers, and incense is 50%.
