Description 

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.

Not my favorite orange
Unlike some other reviewers here, I don't find that this smells very much like *fresh* oranges - it has more of a cooked smell. To me, its the most volatile peel oils in citrus fruits that really enhance their aroma, and these must get removed in the "folding" process. I much prefer a sweet orange EO for soaps. Yes, they are much more fleeting than the 10x EO, but anchoring it with something else makes a better smelling product, in my opinion.

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.

wishful thinking for a candle
I love the smell of true and fresh orange! I just wish that it worked in candles, but theres something that doesn't quite work with the EO's. It also changes the soy wax color to a yellow hue.. *sigh*. Candle problems aside, I love this EO and it is so much more rich and fragrant than the Orange Valencia. Both are great, but this one is definitely more bang in the bottle.

10x Orange Essential Oil
I used this essential oil in a small batch of cold process soap. Following Bramble Berry's recommendation of using 0.7-1 ounce of oil per pound of soap, I combined 0.9 ounces of oil with 20 ounces of soap. The resulting product has a delicious orange scent and has had my house smelling lovely for days! I can't wait for the soap to cure so I can use it! I hope that it retains the delicious orange scent through the curing process. After removing my soap from an oval-shaped silicone mold, it was softer than most of my other soaps have been. After one day of being removed from the mold, the soap started to dry and crack a little bit. I have used this same recipe in another batch of soap that has not cracked after un-molding. I don't know if this can be attributed to the use of this oil in the soap. I have read that an over-use of essential oil can create a drying effect on skin. Maybe this is the same for soap? I will try this recipe again using less oil to see if it makes a better bar.

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!

do not use too much..
My entire house smells like an orange! It has for the past week and the scent does not seem to be going away. This is very strong, which is good considering citrus does not always hold up so well. I used a little over 3 ounces for a 3 lb batch, and I may have used too much. When unmolding my soaps, they were just as hard as any other loaf after insulation but a thin layer of oil rested at the top of my loaf for several days.
