Lemon Verbena Yankee Type: Lemon Verbena by a very famous candle company took the world by storm in 2005 and our customers have been clamoring for it ever since! Our Lemon Verbena is a wonderfully complex blend of Italian Bergamot, Lemon Verbena mixed with sultry Primrose and Violet. Rounding the blend out is a dry down of Amber and White Musk and just a little drop of Peppermint for an energizing surprise!
This fragrance is wonderful in all types of soaps and toiletries but really shines in cold process soap where citrus blends usually wither. Our Lemon Verbena is the perfect pick-me-up for any product or any type of day. Does accelerate in cold process, so keep the temperatures down in your recipe and be prepared to work fast.
NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (178ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Rachel! I'm sorry this scent wasn't your favorite. We love this complex blend of citrus and florals, winding down to base notes of amber and white musk. If you're looking for other lemon scents you make like Lemon Cake Fragrance Oil, Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance, or for a 100% pure and natural lemon try our Lemon Essential Oil.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Wanda! I'm so sorry that your soap had no scent to it with the recommended usage rate. I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Sarah! I'm so glad you think our Lemon Verbena Yankee Type Fragrance Oil is such a gorgeous scent. This fragrance does tend to accelerate in cold process soap due to the floral notes. 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!
