English Rose:This rose smells like an English rose garden. Not as deep as other roses, this is a true, light rose that will add a nice round rose smell to your soap. One of our customers loves this rose so much she wrote, "This is the best rose I have ever smelled and it is the only one that does not turn in my CP. I have had problems with every single other rose I have ever used but I give yours an A++++." A bonus - it does not discolor! This fragrance oil accelerates trace in cold process.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Margaret! So glad you like this fragrance! This fragrance can accelerate in cold process soap. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!

Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry this scent wasn't your favorite. This is a very traditional rose fragrance, you might even call it old fashioned. If you are looking for a more modern floral fragrance, you may like Pikake Flower Fragrance Oil, Apricot Freesia Fragrance Oil, or Rosehip Jasmine Fragrance Oil.

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 […]
