Description 

Kumquat: We set out a loaf of Kumquat Soap at Otion and out of the 15 logs of soap set out, the Kumquat universally elicited "Wows!" and "I want this!". Kumquat is along the lines of pomegranate - bright, fresh, purple with notes of green. It performs admirably in cold process soap and is divine in lotions. Kumquat is considered one of the hot new trends for 2008 so you'll be seeing this fragrance (along with other purples like pomegranate, mangosteen and acai berry) showing up in bodycare and fine perfumes.

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (168ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout. 

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. Mixed into soap easily. Final soap was almost perfect with just a hint of yellow.

Please note that this fragrance oil was reformulated October 2011 to meet new RIFM standards.

Wow!
Thanks Brambleberry for this amazing fragrance. One smell and I was transported to memories of childhood summer drinks. My customers love this in the moisturizers and scrubs.

If you haven't tried it you should and soon. I ordered a 4oz bottle but after the response to the lotion and CP I'm ordering the 8oz bottle. Thank you BB for always having the best products a soap maker could hope for but most of all thank you for your customer service department. Your employees all seems very happy to be there and just as happy to help out customers. However, I'm sorry to say this but, I do have an issue with BB and that is the shipping cost. For people like me with a very small soap business it makes it hard to place large orders. I get my order together, go the the calculate postage page and I have to go back to delete what I can live without. However, like I said your customer service folks are the best I've run across. Happy Soaping everyone.

One of my favorites
I've used this oil in my cold process soap and I absolutely love it! Can't keep enough made, one of my best sellers! So clean and fresh!

Bright!
I think this is a really, really excellent fragrance, but I sort of wonder if it will be even better in blends. Its fresh and very, very sweet. I may mix it with a little Meyer Lemon. Mine discolored to a very light peachy color, and since I'd swirled it with light orange that turned out to be an amazing blend. Didn't accelerate trace at all. This will be part of my soaping kit in the future. :)

Beautiful orange scent
I purchased this FO based on its overwhelmingly positive reviews and was not disappointed. As others have mentioned, the scent is very clean and not at all cloying. Although I like it on its own, it's even better mixed half-and-half with lemongrass essential oil. This FO behaved very well for me and did not accelerate trace.
