Heavenly Honeysuckle Fragrance Oil: This fragrance was inspired by Kim Kardashian's Signature Purple Perfume. The sweet floral aroma of this fragrance really stands out and holds up well even in cold process soap. Notes of tuberose, nectarine, and cherry are picked up on first impression. However, the middle notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, and rose quickly make their appearance. The base notes of sandalwood and musk give this fragrance a calming foundation. Try this fragrance in a luxurious bodywash, relaxing candle, or massage oil if you're looking for a nice strong floral scent.
Performance In Cold Process Soap: This fragrance midly accelerates but does not discolor in cold process soap.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi William! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, it did cause some acceleration and may lend itself better to simpler designs. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Mary! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, it did accelerate slightly. There are several things you can do to slow this down though! 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.

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 […]
