Description 

Ginger-Lime: Citrus and Ginger scents are hot! Capitalizing on this trend, our blend of Ginger and Lime is comprised of the obvious title notes, as well as some extras to make the mix just a little bit more complex and exciting. Rounding out the marriage of Ginger and Lime are supporting notes of Lemon, Lilly, Grapefruit and a minuscule amount of spice. This fragrance will accelerate trace in cold-process soap just a bit so keep that in mind when soaping with it for the first time.

Vanilla Content: .4%

Liquid Castile Testing Notes: We tested this fragrance in our liquid Castile soap base, we recommend making a small test batch just to be sure you like the results. Can be a little tricky, but take your time mixing, and the final results are great! See through soap, with a hint of yellow.

This fragrance contains phthalates.

Flashpoint: This medium-flashpoint oil (174ºF)  cannot ship of USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Love the Scent!!
I absolutely love this scent -- but it accelerated very quickly and riced this time (went for "strong" scent). Was able to stick blend it to a very thick trace. I did dilute the fragrance in an ounce of the oils but the acceleration was much faster than i anticipated. I'm wondering if soaping at room temperature would help with the acceleration and blending 50% with Ginger Ale might help with the ricing. Would appreciate any comments to these ideas before trying again.

Hi Arlene! I'm so glad you love our Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil! We do too! To help slow the acceleration down do exactly as you did and take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe, but heat it up to 100 degrees first. 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, instead of room temperature, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post. You can try blending it with Ginger Ale Fragrance Oil but may still experience acceleration/ricing. I think that sounds like a yummy blend though!

Love the smell, but.....
Ginger Lime is one of my all time favorite scents around. This is a good replication of some of the best out there. I figured I would have some time to do something with the soap. I quickly, and I mean quickly split the batch up by color. I was doing a camo soap so I needed one that would set up semi fast. Well fast is a walk in the park compared to what this did. You won't have much time to do much but shove it in the mold and hope you can tamp out the air. I will order again but I won't plan on anything but throwing it in the mold.

Watch out for acceleration!
You've got about 30 seconds to get this thing into your mold with a normal mix, if that. The trace acceleration is really fast and you end up with a blob if you're not careful. You'll probably want to add water. Heed the description: make sure you do a small test batch before using this oil.

Uplifting and Fabulous
I recently made a batch of homemade laundry soap using 4.5 ounces of coconut castile soap I made along with a half cup of ammonia and a half cup of borax in a gallon of hot water; I used one Tablespoon of the Ginger Lime fragrance. It is the freshest and cleanest laundry detergent I ever made. Ginger Lime is a really great fragrance that is very uplifting!

Lovely lime scent
I am not a citrusy scent person. This fragrance has changed my mind. Some of my family asked me to make a citrus scented cp soap. I took a chance on this scent and am I glad I did. Some of the bars left from Christmas still smell wonderful. I saw from the description that it could accelerate trace so I adjusted for that. I'll be using this scent year around.
