How Do Our Customers Use Grapefruit Lemongrass Energize Fragrance Oil?

Our customers are able to use this energizing fragrance oil in homemade candle products. These candle products can use up to 10% of this grapefruit scent as long as they are created using either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax. Waxes like our Joy wax and Pillar of Bliss Wax will perform perfectly for this scent. Further, this bright fragrance oil has a nice and strong scent when used in soy wax products. If you want to color your candle creations, then we would suggest using three drops of orange liquid candle dye along with three drops of yellow liquid candle dye or using a small amount of shredded orange color blocks with yellow color blocks per four pounds of wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Homemade room scent makers can make a wide variety of creations that could incorporate this energizing fragrance oil. Products such as potpourri and incense can use up to 50% of this scent in recipes. Any homemade cleaning products can use no more than 5% of this fragrance oil in recipes. Also, this fragrance is nice and strong in aroma beads. While many products can be created with this scent, gel wax is not compatible with this fragrance oil.

Homemade soap makers can use this citrus fragrance oil in their creations as well. In fact, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this fragrance will work amazingly in cold process soaps! Not only is this scent a perfect pour, but there is plenty of time to play with soap batches that include this fragrance. Further, the batch has no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The final product will have no discoloration and have an amazing scent throw! If you want to color your soap products, then we suggest using orange liquid soap dye and yellow liquid soap dye in an amount that produces a  hue that you desire. Remember to never use any candles dye in your body products. Further, Natures Garden has created a complimentary cold process soap recipe for this fragrance called Energize Cold Process Soap Recipe!

Other bath and body products created using this awakening fragrance oil will perform well. Some of these bath and body products that performs well are bath oils, bath gels and lotions as long as they include no more than 5% of the scent.

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringPittsburgh Soapmakers Gathering

The 2015 Pittsburgh Soapmakers Gathering was the soaping conference held on Saturday May 2 at the Shaler Library in Pennsylvania.  There were about 25 participants at this event.  Nature’s Garden was one of the lucky vendors that donated to this soaper’s gathering.  It was an opportunity for the participants to get new soaping ideas, learn new techniques, and hopefully make some new soapmaking friends. The one day event included soap making and candle making presentations and workshops.  Each of the guests were given an opportunity to learn a variety of soap making styles.  During the conference some of the events included demos and sessions involving specialty oils like cocoa butter and almond oil, how to creatively use embeds, and how make your products SPARKLE!!!  The participants were also shown techniques for adding various soap colorants including micas and oxides, all natural colorants, and liquid colorants.  Of course, they didn’t leave out candle making!  There was even an informative demo on how to make a coconut and beeswax candle.

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringNature’s Garden was honored to donate door prizes for this fabulous soaping conference.  These door prizes were raffled off at the gathering.  Our door prizes included soaping fragrance oils, a Natures Garden t-shirts, sodium hydroxide, and Nature’s Garden Shopping Bags.  These goody bags were given away at the one day event.  Who wouldn’t love that!?!

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringEach lucky participant was also able to take home a 4 ounce bottle of one of Natures Garden’s 828 fragrance oils.  Some of the scents included Champagne Pear, Coconut Lime Verbana, NG Aqua di Gio Type, and Capri Olivo.  Each of these fragrances have been tested thoroughly and perform amazingly well in soap.   We are hoping that they enjoy soaping with them and are able to find some new soaping favorites!

Pittsburgh Soapmakers GatheringThe conference also included a vendor review time.  During this time, all those who attended, were given the opportunity to learn more about our company and our variety of soaping products.  As you can see, it seems everyone involved had a great time.  To see even more photos and information about the Pittsburgh gathering, check out their Facebook page.

This event was coordinated by the lovely Lori Chandler of Ashgrove Soaps.  I just have to say, what an amazing woman!  I had the pleasure of meeting Lori at the 2015 HCSG Conference which took place in April in Indiana.  She is an absolute doll!  It was a pleasure to meet her.  Clearly, she has done a wonderful job coordinating the 2015 Pittsburgh Soapmakers Gathering and worked very hard preparing.  It looks like everyone had a blast.  Thank you so much for letting us donate to this event.  Also, a big thanks to all those involved in making this gathering possible.  Nature’s Garden is very grateful to all those who participated.  We would also like to thank Stu Chandler for the amazing photos.  He is a very gifted photographer and he did a great job.  It is truly appreciated.  If you attended the Pittsburgh Soapmakers Gathering, we would love to hear about your experience.
