Blackberry Jam FragranceBlackberry Jam Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Natures Garden’s Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil is a bestselling fragrance.  One might ask “what is the difference between jam and jelly.  Jam, jelly and preserves are all made with fruit that is mixed with sugar and pectin, an indigestible carbohydrate or fiber.  Pectin can be found in the cell walls of most fruit.  When heated with sugar in water, it gels, giving jam, jelly and preserves their thickness.  Jam is made from the crushed pulp of the fruit while jelly is made strictly from the juice of the fruit.  And in preserves, the fruit comes from chunks in a syrup.  You can tell the difference between jam and jelly by sight as jelly spreads pretty evenly and jam will tend to be a little lumpy.

Would you like to your own homemade blackberry jam?  Using the ingredients below and following the 10 steps below, it’s super easy.

What you will need:

5 cups of crushed blackberry (do not puree)

7 cups of sugar

1 package of fruit jell pectin

Step 1:  Very carefully measure out the blackberries

Step 2:  Place the blackberries into a very large pot

Step 3:  Add the pectin to the blackberries in the pot, stirring constantly

Step 4:  Heat the blackberry and pectin mixture on high, while constantly stirring until the it comes to a full boil

Step 5:  Pour all 7 cups of sugar into the pot and stir

Step 6:  Stir constantly as you bring the mixture back to a boil and allow to boil for one minute and then remove from heat

Step 7:  Ladle the mixture into your jars leaving a 1/4″ space at the top

Step 8:  Wipe the rim of the jars and place the canning tops on firmly

Step 9:  Place all of the jars in a canner with very hot water and make sure the water is 1″ above the tops of the jars, leaving them in the water for 10 minutes

Step 10:  Remove the jars from the water.  Then allow the jars to sit untouched for 12 hours.  In 12 hours, you may open and enjoy!!

Bermuda Triangle FragranceBermuda Triangle Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The Bermuda Triangle is the nickname given to the area of the Atlantic Ocean between Miami, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. It is most famous for legends of ships and planes suddenly vanishing in the area under mysterious circumstances. Sailors have reported strange phenomena in the area, particularly affecting navigation equipment, since the days of Christopher Columbus.  But many authors have embellished alleged occurrences because it makes for a good story. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble- who doesn’t love a good enigma? (Reported events are extremely interesting to read about if you have the time.) It has since been revealed that the number of incidents that occurred in the Bermuda Triangle are no greater than anywhere else in the Atlantic Ocean, and no mysterious disappearances have been reported since the late 1960s. In light of this news, remember the Bermuda Triangle is located near some ideal vacation destinations- a great place to plan your escape. Disappear from your everyday with this fragrance.

Amish Quilt Fragrance

Amish Quilt Fragrance OilAmish Quilt Fragrance – Spotlight

Here we are, talking about the Amish again. Well, here I am again, typing about this interesting group of people who will never see my blog posts. (Again- if you’re Amish and reading this, email me at [email protected] and please explain to me how that works.) Another throwback to a simpler time, Amish quilts are handmade and are usually a gift to mark a significant event- a marriage, the birth of a baby, etc. These were traditionally given within the community, but high demand from outsiders (apparently people started snatching Amish quilts right off of clotheslines in the 1970’s) created the need for production of Amish quilts to sell to the population at large. They are still very carefully crafted as if they were for a close personal relative, and the high quality of the materials makes them suitable for both daily use and passing down as family heirlooms. You can use that sucker every day and still give it to your kids, or their kids, or their kids’ kids- that’s how much time, effort, love, and quality is packed into these babies. True to form, individual Amish or Mennonite women only make one or two of these quilts a year (and people were STEALING them! HOW RUDE!) Wrap yourself in the warmth of a homey handmade quilt by using this fragrance in your favorite products.

This fragrance is the tender sun-kissed florals of heliotrope and jasmine, softly blended with woody violet and herbaceous anise to create a cozy scent of pure comfort.

For candle making, Amish Quilt fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Amish Quilt fragrance IS gel wax compatible! For coloring your candles, we recommend using four drops of teal liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded teal color block per four pounds of wax. Why teal? I dunno, man, don’t ask me- I just work here. But if I had to take a guess I would say it’s because teal is a calming color and this is a comfy, cozy scent. Amish quilts come in all kinds of crazy colors so I say use which ever colors you want! Make crazy patterns if you feel so inclined, as long as it’s made with love.

For soap making, the maximum recommended usage percentage in bath oils, soaps, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Amish Quilt fragrance performed well in bath & products and our cold process soap testing results show no ricing, no separation, no acceleration and no discoloration.
