Clementine Fragrance Oil

Clementine Fragrance OilClementine Fragrance Oil- Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Oh my darling! This Nature’s Garden Clementine fragrance oil is absolutely delicious! Not only does this scent resemble a delectable, citrus that one, such as myself, cannot get enough of, but a clementine is the tastier of the citrus family. While a clementine is similar to an orange, it’s sweeter, smaller, easier to peel and all around much more adorable. If you incorporate this enticing fruit fragrance into your recipes, then you are sure to not be disappointed.

What Does Clementine Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a wonderful citrus arrangement including top notes of clementine, tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and lime; with middle notes of ginger, and lime blossoms, and a fresh base note of vanilla bean.  This fragrance really comes alive in wax and body products.

Top Notes:  tangerine, orange, grapefruit, clementine, lime
Mid Notes:  ginger, lime blossoms
Base Notes:  vanilla bean

How Do Our Customers Use Clementine Fragrance Oil?

Foremost, the homemade candle makers and room scenters can use this citrus scent in their candles and wax tarts. Potpourri and Incense can include up to 50% of this fragrance oil in products. If used at no more than 10% in candles that use either paraffin wax or vegetable wax, they will perform perfectly. Further, the scent performs wonderfully in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. If you wish to color a candle, then we recommend using  four drops of orange liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or to shred an ample amount of an orange color block into your melted wax. Remember not to ever use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick. Unfortunately, this scent is not gel wax compatible. However, this scent performs perfectly well in aroma beads.

Second, homemade bath and body crafters can use this fragrance at a maximum of 5%. This includes bath oils, melt and pour soaps, bath gels, and cold process soaps. Homemade cp soap makers may like to know that our cold process soap testing results concluded in no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The fragrance has very strong scent retention in the soaps. Further, we found this scent to smell very true to a sweet, fresh clementine, some may say it’s absolutely to die for! A bar will slightly discolor to a slight beige color. Although there isn’t much discoloration, the .7% vanillin content indicates that vanilla white stabilizer may be able to whiten the slightly off white bar. However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products so testing is recommended. Finally, we recommend using orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for coloring the bars. Remember to ever use candle dye in any body products as it is not body safe.

Last, but not least, there are the various other crafts that can be created. This includes perfumes cleaning products, and lotions, which all allows for up to 5% of this fragrance bin a product. Further, perfumes have been tested to work perfectly well with this scent.

How Do Our Customers Use Cashmere Type Fragrance Oil?

Cleaning products can be made that utilize this fragrance at a maximum of 4.6%.

Homemade soap, bath products, and body products can be made using this fragrance at a maximum of 5%. Perfumes will perform perfectly at or below this percentage. Also, bath and body products will perform well using the same concentration of this sensual fragrance. Also, soapers can utilize this fragrance for either melt and pour soap or cold process soap. Our cold process soap results show that our Cashmere Type Fragrance will produce a perfect pour! Not only that, but this fragrance causes no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. This scent will discolor to a very light beige and has a good scent retention. Further, we at Nature’s Garden regard Cashmere Type Fragrance to be an extremely nice, very upscale, and classy scent. Although the discoloration of this bar will be is minimal, vanilla white stabilizer can be used. This will help with any discoloration caused by the vanillin content of 1.05%, which will produce a whiter bar. However, there are more than 40 ingredients used by perfumists that can cause discoloration.  For coloring, we suggest using pink soap colorant and purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products.

Candles and other room scents can be handcrafted using Cashmere Type Fragrance. Homemade room scenters can use up to 50% for incense and potpourri.

Further, this scent performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax.  Plus, it is nice and strong in soy wax. We suggest using one drop of red liquid candle dye with a tiny bit of purple liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax to color these candles. On the other hand, a nice color can be made by shredding a small amount of red color block and purple color block into your melted wax. Just remember that crayons do not make a sufficient substitute for candle colorants. Although crayons may provide color, they will clog your wick.

We hope that use this sensual fragrance and it will inspire you to create magnificent works!

Balsam and Cedar Fragrance


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Soap making supplies, Uncategorized, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Balsam and Cedar FragranceBalsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Spotlight

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.)

What Does Balsam and Cedar Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam.  This fragrance is composed of top notes of  orange, raspberry, and plum;  middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth;  base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.

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.
