Apple Pie Lip Scrub

Our Apple Pie Lip Scrub is the perfect addition to our fall recipes and DIY’s! We’ll slowly start to incorporate more autumn flavors and fragrances into our projects because we’re all about the season. The weather will slowly begin to cool and that usually means we get dry skin. Using a nourishing, yet exfoliating lip scrub can help shed away the dead skin to reveal more plump and beautiful lips. We decided to use our Natural Apple Pie flavor oil for this project because apple pie screams fall Lets begin.

The Process

  1. To begin, you’ll need a small mixing bowl, measuring spoons, dropper, and a spoon to mix.

2. Begin by pouring 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar onto a small mixing bowl. If you’d like your lip scrub to be a thicker consistency, feel free to add 1/2 a teaspoon more of granulated sugar. (More sugar = thicker, more oil = runnier)

3. Next, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil into your mixture.

4. Then, add 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil into your mixing bowl. You can always swap out any of these two oils for oils that you’d like. Almond oil, olive oil, mango oil, the possibilities are endless!

5. Add in Nature’s Flavors Natural Apple Pie flavor oil and mix! We only added three drops. We’ve said it plenty of times but we’ll keep reminding you, a little goes a VERY long way! We know you’re tempted to add more but don’t. You don’t want to over flavor your lip scrub!

Fragrances 101

Happy Friday! We hope quarantine is treating you alright, the team at Nature’s Flavors is sending good vibes to you all! Let’s get right into today’s topic, fragrances 101! As you know, Nature’s Flavors not only makes flavors but we also offer fragrances. In fact, we’ve been creating flavors and fragrances for over 35 years! Our menu of fragrances can be overwhelming but we are here to help you break it down.

Nature’s Flavors offers three main types of fragrances. They all cater to different applications, it really just depends on what you are searching for. We offer fragrance oils that are oil soluble, fragrance oils that are alcohol soluble, fragrance powders, and fragrance emulsions. Now, you may be wondering what the heck all these are! Well friends, let’s dive in.

Fragrance Oils (Oil Soluble)

Fragrance oils that are oil soluble are exactly what they sound like. If you use a Nature’s Flavors fragrance oil that is oil soluble, you can expect it to dissolve into your mixture without a hassle. You wouldn’t want to use an oil with a water based product. Oil and water don’t mix! Customers who purchase oil soluble fragrance oils are usually creating oil based beauty products like body butters and moisturizers.

Overview:

  • Use oil soluble fragrance oils with oil based products!

Fragrance Oils (Alcohol Soluble)

Alcohol soluble fragrance oils are used with alcohol based products. You want to match the base of your product with the fragrance that you decide to use. Products like hand sanitizer, perfume, and house cleaner, usually have an alcohol base and use alcohol soluble fragrance oils.

Overview:

  • If your product is alcohol based and you want to add a scent to it, use an alcohol soluble fragrance oil.

Fragrance Powders

Fragrance powders are used for products like bath bombs, body powders, and powdered body glitter. You wouldn’t want to mix a fragrance powder with oil because your mixture will become paste-like. It’s really all about preference. If you were making a bath bomb, you could add in your fragrance oil/emulsion while your mixture is still wet. But if you prefer to keep your base and your fragrance powder the same, that’s okay too! You’re going to have to experiment to figure out what works best for you and your product.

Overview:

  • Powders are best used with bath bombs, body powders, and powdered body glitter.

Fragrance Emulsions

Fragrance emulsions are often used with water based products like gel body wash, soap, and diy detergents. You could use an alcohol soluble fragrance oil but some customers want to avoid adding alcohol into their product. If that is the situation, an emulsion is your solution!

Overview:

  • Use emulsions on water based products!

Things to remember!

  • Our fragrance oils, powders, and emulsions are NOT edible.
  • We always recommend to spot test first!

We hope this Fragrances 101 article helps you throughout your craft! We are always here to help you with any questions you may have, our team is just a phone call or an email away. Happy Friday!
