Limiting myself to just 10 scents


Over the past eight months, it has become apparent to me that I have collected a gargantuan amount of various fragrance oils from Natures Garden. And furthermore, I can explain how that happened. Allow me to share with you what happens every time I have to order more fragrances for my soaps. I get onto the Natures Garden store, and everything just sounds soooo good! I scroll through page after page, clicking the add to cart button. I go to check out, and I simply cannot get rid of any of the fragrances that I put in. Those fragrance oils are then soaped, tried, smelled and stuffed into my itty, bitty, cabinet.  I really hadn’t thought of that being a problem, however it is. Sooooo, What did I do about it?
I made a list as long as an archery range, of the fragrances I have. I have decided I would share it with you, just so you could get an idea of the problem at hand.
And here we go:
NG Anjou pear blossom

I know, Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your fragrance list.
And that’s not including the dozens of sample bottles that I have accumulated since last year. Or the next order I have to buy. What can I say? I am a glutton for fragrance oils, if that’s even possible. So here is what I plan to do. I made a list of the fragrances I am keeping all year.
The list:                    
Aqua di gio
Awapuhi Seaberry
Ocean Waves
Cool waters type
Pink sugar type
Iced pineapple
Endless summer
Oatmeal milk & honey
Salt Water Taffy
And Essential oil soaps:
Tea tree

Somehow, I am going to snip little fragrances off this long list.
Honestly, I don’t know how I am going to do this, but I certainly know I am going to try.
I know I’ll have a ton of encouraging help from Katie and Jason. (Yeah, Right…)
