Blue Sugar Type FragranceBlue Sugar Type Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Blue Sugar Type Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a must have fragrance.  This exotic fragrance oil has me intrigued as some have described it as being the perfect scent for men, while others are in agreement that it does definitely work as unisex fragrance.  Overall, this fragrance is a scent that can be enjoyed by women and men of all ages.  A direct quote from one of our customers, “This fragrance oil is wonderful, and does work as a unisex scent, but the bath gel scent on a man is quite an enticing scent.  My husband knows first hand.”

What Does Blue Sugar Type Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The fresh citrus aroma creates a shimmering lift for this sensual vanilla based scent.  It’s a romantic floral bouquet with the heart of the fragrance intertwining with fresh green tones and rich patchouli.  The vanilla signature at the base of the scent is balanced with soft musk and warmed by exotic woody tones for lingering sensuality.  Compare this fragrance oil by Natures Garden to the popular Aquolina Blue Sugar.  We are in no way affiliated with Aquolina.

How Do Our Customers Use Blue Sugar Type Fragrance Oil? 

Let’s start with our candle crafters and home scenters!  For homemade candles, the maximum usage is 10% for this unisex fragrance oil.  The maximum use for home scents such as reed diffusers, potpourri, and incense is 50%, and for cleaning products the maximum usage 5%.   In candles, Blue Sugar Type Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.  For room scenting, this exotic scent is nice and strong in aroma beads as well.  Color suggestions for your beautiful homemade candles are to use 2 drops of blue liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of blue color block into your melted wax.  As a friendly reminder, never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

And for our homemade soapers, the maximum usage is 5% and that goes for your bath and body products such as bath oils, bath gels, lotions, and perfumes.  The cold process soap testing results shows no ricing, acceleration, or separation.  It discolors to a brown with very strong scent retention.  The vanillin content of Blue Sugar Type Fragrance Oil is 7%.  Vanilla White Color stabilizer may help prevent discoloration due to vanilla.  However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products. The color suggestion for your homemade soap is to use as much blue soap colorant until you are satisfied.  Never use candle dye in any body products.  In other homemade bath and body products, it performed well and in perfumes it performs perfectly.

Sweet Orange Chili Pepper CP Soap Recipe

This hot soap is just too good to pass up!

For this recipe, we wanted to really knock it out of the box.  And, in the end, the whole Hot Soap theme really tied together nicely with the scent and color.  We could not be happier with the total package of this awesome soap and recipe.  In fact, our testing and end results were so amazing, we couldn’t even wait to share the cold process soap recipe, so you to can recreateyour very own hot soap.  Since, this cold process soap recipe makes approximately 4.5 pounds of  beautiful, creamy and rich lathering bars; we used the Mold Market Square Loaf Mold and have enough soap batter to achieve a nice and full heaped top to the soap.  This made for very hearty sized slices.

To scent the soap, we selected Sweet Orange Chili Pepper.  This fragrance oil qualifies as a hot soap scent candidate because it is one of Natures Garden’s top selling cold process soap scents.  Not only does this fragrance oil have a kick, but it also behaves.  This means it is a Perfect Pour, and the scent retention is hands down amazing in the cured bar of soap.  If you have yet to try this scent in soap, you are really missing out!

Sticking with the hot soap theme, we went with the additions of a bold red and vibrant orange color.  This was accomplished using the FUN soap colorant tomato red, and neon orange.  However, for these colors to truly dazzle, we decided that the colors should be added as swirls to a white soap base.  Now, although Sweet Orange Chili Pepper fragrance oil does not discolor, we wanted a clean white.  We attained this by adding titanium dioxide.

The red and orange colored batter was introduced to the white soap batter using the in the pot swirl technique.  We personally love using this method to create beautiful and flowing swirls in our finished soap bars.  But, don’t get overwhelmed, this hot soap is really easy to make; and in this blog post we will go over each step with pictures of our process included.

Now, before we get started, if you have never made cold process soap before; please read these two classes to familiarize yourself with the soap making process.  They are Basic CP Soap Making Class and Soap Making Safety Class.

If you have already soaped before, lets move on to the recipe and ingredients!

For the Lye Solution
517 grams of water
189 grams of lye
For your soaping ingredients
340 grams of Shea Butter
408 grams of Coconut Oil 76
122 grams of Sunflower Oil
136 grams of Rice Bran Oil
272 grams of Olive Oil-pomace
82 grams of Castor Oil
85 grams of Sweet Orange Chili Pepper Fragrance Oil
50 grams of Sodium Lactate
7 grams of Titanium Dioxide

As for other supplies that you will need in addition to the standard soaping supplies:  2 mixing bowls (1 for the red soap colorant, and 1 for the orange soap colorant) and a spatula (for the in the pot swirl technique).

Then, get your soap batter, and place 400 grams into each soap colorant bowl.  To incorporate the orange soap colorant, stir this with a spoon.  To incorporate the red soap colorant, stick blend.  Once both colors are incorporated in their bowls, set them aside.

Moving quickly, to the remaining soap batter, add titanium dioxide.  Then, stick blend well to incorporate.

Now, bring the white soap batter over to your color soap bowls.  Then, drop some of the orange soap batter throughout the white soap.  Continue doing this until all of the orange soap is gone.  Repeat the same action with the red soap batter.

pouring the hot soap colors into the soap batter
Now, for the in the pot swirl:  Start by placing the spatula alongside the inside bottom edge of the bowl.  Then, come straight up the center.  When you reach the top, pick the spatula up.  Now, starting on one side, begin your swirls in a “s” pattern (using the spatula).  Repeat on the other side.

Next, carefully pour the soap batter into the mold.

Once the mold has been filled, use the remaining batter to add a nice heaped topping.  You may need to wait a few minutes for the soap batter to thicken slightly before attempting this.  Then once all of the remaining soap has been heaped, insulate.  Please note:  You may want to insulate your soap using something that will not touch the top of the heaped soap.

After 24 hours, remove the soap from the mold.  Then, using your knife, slice the hot soap into bars.  Allow them to further cure before using.

That is it!  Your hot soap performs and smells fantastic.  Plus, you will have created the most beautiful swirls.  Enjoy!
