Ginger Pomelo Roll on Perfume

Finished Perfume
Finished Perfume

I love fragrances. I think that is half the fun when it come to making personal care items. I love the delight that comes across people’s faces when they open a bottle and take a big sniff. Watching people react to different fragrances is a big thrill for me. From small children to the elderly, we all enjoy scents.  Join me today as we create a wonderful roll on perfume!

Weighing Out Golden Jojoba Oil
Weighing Out Golden Jojoba Oil

Over the next few days we will make a variety of roll on perfumes. I will choose different carrier oils and explain the differences. Today I will be using Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil is actually a liquid wax. It is very stable and has a long shelf life. It also is a light to medium weight oil, meaning it doesn’t feel extremely greasy.

For this particular project, I am using Golden Jojoba Oil. I had a few reasons for this. The first is for the color. I felt that beautiful golden color would complement the fragrance I was using today. Golden Jojoba is also just a little heavier than the Colorless Jojoba. I really wanted something that could be massaged into the skin, leaving a  nice after feel and plenty of scent. If I were using a different scent or looking for a lighter feeling oil, I would use the Colorless Jojoba.

Special Production Run – Somali Rose

Rose2Hear ye, hear ye! I have a special announcement to make! There are quite a few of you who have been begging for Somali Rose to return. Sadly, I can’t quite convince the higher powers to bring it fully back to the catalog, but I have gotten permission to have a special production run!

Can’t remember the description? “A customer called us desperate for a fragrance he could no longer get. Can you imagine a masculine rose? Here it is! Rose with chocolate, sandalwood, anise, musk and a twist of green moss. A unique smell that had many staff members say “mmmmmm”! Now don’t be too concerned about the rose in the name or the blend, this isn’t a strong floral type. Very masculine and sexy.”

Caramel Apple Cold Process Soap

Finished bars of soap after being cut.
Finished bars of soap after being cut.
I remember being a teen and having braces. While they were uncomfortable to wear, I remember helping my mom make batches of soft, melt-in-your-mouth caramel that I could eat without damaging my braces. One time, we made a mistake and ended up with a fantastic caramel sauce that was delicious drizzled over apple slices. We still make the caramel sauce to this day and it is always enjoyed!

The release of our new Green Apple and Caramel Toffee flavors had me thinking about the caramels that we used to make and how I loved to pair the caramel sauce with apples. Since I’ve made a Caramel Apple Lip balm, I have to make a soap that is complementary. Come with me and we’ll make a great batch of Caramel Apple Soap!

Season Change: Autumn Equinox

Autumn Leaves on a pond.
Autumn Leaves on a pond.
Today, autumn officially begins. While the weather has already started to cool down here in Northern Utah and I’m beginning to see pumpkin stands by the side of the road, I still think autumn hasn’t begun until the equinox. I love the cool weather, changing colors of the landscape and even breaking out my baking books for some new recipes. What is your favorite thing about autumn?

Now that I’ve given myself permission to think about autumn (Halloween is the only exception), I’m going to share some of my favorite scent blends that have me thinking of autumn. Let’s go check them out!

Salt Potpourri

Salt is a very diverse product. I use it for cooking, topping popcorn, mixing scrubs and even making salt potpourri. Salt potpourri is a simple way to incorporate your favorite scents into any space. I think that salt potpourri makes it so you don’t have to worry about hiding the bottle of room spray because the scent is coming from a part of your decor!

I enjoy walking into a softly scented room. It is so pleasant and refreshing, and it feels like a miniature celebration. Today I am going to make several jars of salt potpourri and use some of our recently released fragrance oils. Let me tell you about these yummy fragrances!

Amazon Fragrance Oil
This fragrance is a mixture of a tropical breeze and refreshing floral scent. A very fresh and delightful scent! I’m going to put a jute bag filled with Amazon salt potpourri into my car. It beats having the miscellaneous odors that come with having kids!

Coconut Cassis Fragrance Oil
You can never go wrong with a coconut scent and this scent has a wonderful mixture of coconut and currants! The cassis or currant part of this scent is sweet and fruity with a touch of spice that is paired perfectly with coconut. This is a new favorite of mine! This jute bag filled with Coconut Cassis salt potpourri will go into my office, for an uplifting scent for me to enjoy while I work. (Say it ka-sees and consider yourself a pro!)

Dirty Mimosa Fragrance Oil
The mimosa is a classic brunch cocktail and one of my favorite to make. Made from one part chilled dry champagne or dry sparkling wine and one part chilled orange juice, it is a enjoyable way to get some Vitamin C. Dirty Mimosa is our take on this delicious cocktail. You get dazzling citrus and sparkling green leafy notes balanced with earthy tobacco, sugar cane, coconut and vanilla. I’m stashing a jar of the Dirty Mimosa salt potpourri in the living room to bring some cheer into the evenings when I’m not busy running kids around!

Napa Valley Vineyard Fragrance Oil
Our Special Reserve fragrance is filled with fruity and rich Cabernet grapes with complementary notes of berries, clover and musk. I think this luscious scent is wonderful soap, lotion and naturally, salt potpourri. This jar of Napa Valley Vineyard salt potpourri is going into my bathroom as a way to pamper and soothe the soul after a long day. Bubble bath, here I come!

Cabana Boys Fragrance Oil
A summertime dream of vacationing at the beach or poolside, enjoying pineapple packed beverages served by cabana boys while sitting in a chaise lounge enjoying the tropical scenery. A new drink fragrance with sweet pineapple and citrus (no speedos here). Cocktail umbrellas are optional, but I think it makes the drink taste better! I’m going to tuck the jar of Cabana Boys salt potpourri in the kid’s bathroom.

After describing all these fragrances, I’m feeling a bit like a mixologist. Are you getting the sense that cocktails are the word of the day?

Ingredients
Salt, Extra Large or Jumbo
Fragrance or Essential Oil
Equipment
Pipettes
Strainer
Containers of choice

Directions:

Take the size of salt you desire, either Jumbo or Extra Large, and place enough salt that will fill your container(s) of choice into your strainer. We want to do a quick rinse of the salt to remove the powdery coating on the salt. Check out the photos and you will definitely see how the rinsed salt has more shine.

After the salt has dried, it is ready to place into your container. I have shown two options 1) glass jar with a lid that has holes (I’m using those small glass cheese containers) and 2) jute burlap drawstring bags. If you prefer any small open bowl or container can work as well. Always choose a glass container or natural fabric bags for displaying your salts. Fragrance and Essential Oils are strong solvents and will break down plastics.

Once the containers are filled with salt, then you add 1-2 ml of any fragrance or essential oil of your choice directly to the salt. Place the lid on the glass cheese containers and give a little shake when you want to freshen up your space. For the jute bags close the drawstring and give it a squish. I placed the jute bags onto a cardboard piece until ready to use.

When your salt potpourri starts to lose its scent, then add another 1-2ml of the same fragrance or essential oil or use a complementary new fragrance oil and start the fun all over again.

Enjoy the Salt!

IMG_0545 1

The fragrance oils that we have chosen to mix up today are Angel, Polynesian Red with Sunflower.

Angel type fragrance oil – One of our staff’s top favorite and requested scent! A seducing and passionate scent with notes of bergamot, berries, vanilla, patchouly and sweetness. Very sexy and long lasting oriental scent. Great in lotions as we have created in our samples or a great scent to create your own body sprays.

Polynesian Red and Sunflower fragrance oil – Today we chose to blend two of our fragrances together. I know is a daunting task because blending may or may not produce fantastic results. All I can say is: you’ve got to try this! When I saw this scent today I said to myself “I like Polynesian Red and I also like Sunflower, so, what will this smell like blended together?” Well, I’m really liking this blend, I just put some lotion on my hands and I’m getting the warm sunny scent from the sunflowers, a bit of sunshine with breezes of vanilla, and fruity pomegranates. Just like bouquets of flowers, this is a happy occasion.
