10X Orange Essential Oil: Also referred to as '10 Fold' Orange. What's a folded oil? It's a form of concentrating the oil and removing much of the lower boiling components, primarily d-Limonene. The higher the number, the more times it's been folded, or concentrated. Our 10X Orange is folded via fractional distillation. The still filters out the unnecessary components and concentrates all the "good smelling" components that really stick in your cold process soap. Unlike traditional citrus essential oils, this orange will actually smell good in your CP soap after you've made it. Turns CP soap a beautiful bright orange color. We use it at .7 to 1 ounce per pound of soap and it smells juicy, ripe and delicious.
This oil is a photosensitizer so use caution if using in lip balms. Sunburned lips are no fun.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Evie! I'm so glad you love the way our 10x Orange Essential Oil smells. In our tests and recipes this essential oil should not heat up your soap or cause air bubbles. Air bubbles are really easy to get and are usually caused by mixing air into your soap batter from your stick blender as demonstrated in our Avoid Pesky Air Bubbles in CP blog post. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Hi Kurt! I'm sorry this essential oil wasn't your favorite. If you'd like a sweeter essential oil combination, you may like 10x Orange paired with Anise Essential Oil, Fennel Sweet Essential Oil, or Peppermint Essential Oil, 1st Distill.
