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.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Rachel! I'm so glad you like the scent of our Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil! As noted in the description this fragrance does accelerate trace. 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. 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. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
