Karma Essential Oil Blend (Type): This "nearly natural" is inspired by Lush's fabulous signature fragrance smells deeply sensuous and alluring, with base notes of Patchouli and Orange. It contains just 1% synthetic to mimic Ambergris (a musky note extracted from sperm whale intestines). It is also fabulous in cold process and melt & pour soap and discolors to a honey brown
This blend is comprised of: Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon Cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus Dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula Hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan Flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium Commune), and Gardenia Extract (Gardenia Jasminoides). This fragrance warms up beautifully on the skin and makes an excellent lotion, dusting powder or perfume.

Although this does not smell exactly as the LUSH product it does smell fabulous in both cold process soap and lotions. I use it in my own products and always have both a bar of soap and the lotion in my bathroom at all times. I've also given both the soap and the lotion to a few lucky people and they love it too. I will continue to buy this product in great big bottles.
I really wanted to like this. I have never had a batch seize up on me. Horrible experience. Had to revert to other techniques to try and save this 10 lb batch. Ended up adding more Patchouli.
End result was ok but not sell worthy.
Will not buy again.
First, this set up quickly on me like fragrance oils tend to, I made the adjustments to how I worked with it but it does complicate it. I added Valencia orange to bring up the citrus side of it. I actually didn't notice as much of the spice part of the blend myself. My hippy dad loved the soap, I made this whole batch to send to him.
This scent blended in my body butters is one of my best sellers....so much that when I discontinued my butters briefly to reformulate .....I was met with resistance from my loyal karma scent fans. Do not be discouraged by any negative reviews.....customers show up faithfully with their empty containers asking for more. I wish Brambleberry would blend more customized formulations.....as this one has been a great success.
I bought this, because my daughter wanted Lush Karma. After the price I choose to make it for her. I did read the reviews so I was ok with it not smelling like Lush. I am pleased with the smell the only concern I have is the I do not see the vanillia % listed. I will buy this again.
