Orange 10X 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.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Marcie! I'm so glad you love our Orange 10X Essential Oil! It definitely is a great blender, it's one of my favorites! This EO can be used in rollerballs on the skin as long as it is diluted in a carrier oil. I would recommend something lightweight, like Sweet Almond Oil.
