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!)

Hayride FragranceHayride Fragrance Oil Spotlight

What did the hungry horse say to the forgetful farmer? “HAY!!” Hayrides are another hallmark of autumn. Bundle up and load up a wagon full of soft hay, pile everyone in and go for a ride through the countryside! Hayrides often accompany other fun family fall activities such as corn mazes and visits to the pumpkin patch. The Metroparks offer hayrides and a corn maze for the kids at the Carlisle Equestrian Center here in Ohio  during weekends in October (only $1 for tickets). Or, if you’d like the aroma of going on a hayride without having to brave October weather or potentially itchy and pokey hay- fill your home with this fragrance while staying warm inside!

The scent of new mown hay with notes of sweet balsam combined with smooth vetiver and cedarwood giving way to that fresh outdoor country air aroma.

Pumpkin Roll Fragrance

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!

Top Notes: Sugar Pumpkin, Orange, Sweet Butter
Mid Notes: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Maple
Base Notes: Vanilla

How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This sumptuous scent 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 for this fall fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 5 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayons; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This freshly-baked fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Soaps! This spicy, sweet scent performs well in bath and body products and its maximum usage percentage in bath oils, bath gels, and soaps is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this mouth-watering aroma had a perfect pour in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and strong scent retention after cure. It did, however, discolor to a tan color. This is possibly due to the fragrance’s 2.6% vanillin content. Vanillin may discolor bath and body products to varying shades of brown; the higher the vanillin content, the darker the discoloration. To combat discoloration due to vanilla, try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Remember, you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you!

We’ve also got this cute recipe for Pumpkin Puke Soap Jelly– perfect for kids and just in time for Halloween! There is no lye involved- so older kids could definitely help with the measuring and mixing of ingredients: melt and pour soap, optiphen, soap colorant, and fragrance– just be sure to be careful not to ingest fragrance- no matter how good it smells! Kids of all ages can help decorate the outside of the jars that will hold the soap. You can make them look like jack-o-lanterns in the picture included with the recipe, or any other fun. spooky Halloween decoration you can imagine!

Body products! This autumn aroma performs perfectly in perfumes and its maximum usage percentage in body sprays and lotions is 5%.

Cleaning products (not for your body)! The maximum usage percentage for this seasonal scent in cleaning products is 5%.

Balsam Fragrance

Balsam FragranceBalsam Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Balsam fir trees, native to northern North America, are evergreen trees that thrive in cooler environments. You may know them better as… CHRISTMAS TREES. That’s right, balsam fir trees are your seasonal superhero’s secret identity. It takes about a decade for these trees to reach ideal Christmas tree height- 6 or 7 feet- but they can live to be up to 200 years old and grow up to 60 feet in height. Can you imagine how many presents would fit under that tree?!

What Does Balsam Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fresh pine balsam aroma is great for Christmas time, or all year round. Use by itself, or for mixing creative new scents for your line.

How Do Our Customers Use Balsam Fragrance Oil?

They design delightful decorative candles! Balsam Fragrance Oil 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 in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring suggestion for candles made with this wonderful pine scent are to use 4 drops green plus a little black liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of green color block into your melted wax. Black candle colorant only comes in liquid candle dye. Please remember that our liquid candle dyes are VERY CONCENTRATED and as someone who likes to mix colors for painting and various craft applications, let me tell you that you only need a tiny amount of black color to make something darker. Itty bitty tiny little bit of black. You can always add more, but I recommend using the tip of a toothpick, dipping it in your dye, and then dipping it in your wax. Also- never use crayons to color your candles; it’ll clog the wick.

They scent rooms without using wax! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fresh fir fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%. It came across nice and strong in aroma beads. You could also modify our Glamour Aroma Bead Air Freshener Recipe, use Balsam Fragrance Oil instead of I’m Too Sexy Fragrance Oil and use Christmas-tree-shaped (or any Christmas shape your heart desires) cookie cutters to make cute little Christmas ornaments! Remember, though, that once you use baking tools to make a recipe with fragrance oils, do not use them again in cooking applications. Even minute residue from your recipe could make you sick if you eat it. Set your fragrance fun equipment aside from you cooking equipment; better safe than sorry!

They also invent amazing bath and body products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this simply spectacular scent in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 3.5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this amazing aroma performed perfectly in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and very, very strong scent retention. The vanillin content of this fragrance is 0% so it is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products. Our coloring suggestions are to use green and black soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. (Don’t forget what I said above about using black in a color mix!) We’ve also got some natural soap colorants that you’re welcome to try! We’ve got a handful of natural green soap colorants, and for black: activated charcoal. Be sure to read the pages on the powders- some soapmaking processes may affect the intended color of your soap. (You can also read-up on the nutrients and other benefits of these natural colorants!)

Check out our Christmas tree soap molds for festive holiday soapmaking!

They create body products for outside of the bath! This fresh pine aroma performs perfectly in perfumes, and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body-sprays is 3.5%.

They even come up with cool cleaning products. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fragrance in cleaning products is 3.5%.
