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.

Hi Sara! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. We've found that it creates a nice smooth bar of soap, as seen in this Juicy Orange and Sweet Rose Cold Process Soap Tutorial. Some fragrance or essential oils will take longer than others to unmold. If you find that your bar is soft or cracking, you can add more Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, or Palm Kernel Flakes. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

Several months ago, I received a lovely email from Patti Flynn. Patti participated in the “Crazy Sexy Vegan Cleanse,” that I coordinated in 2012, which involved no meat, sugar, dairy, gluten, alcohol or coffee. During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
