Description 

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.

Smells Good
This is a wonderful lemon-scented fragrance, but smells a little chemical-y to me. I do not prefer this scent.

no fragrance ! Or FO calculator is WRONG?
No scent in cold process soap! or the fragrance calculator is wrong! I can't figure out if the FO has changed or if the calculator is wrong. I had my doubts when the calculator showed .8oz (< 1 oz) for 80 oz batch so I called and the rep said the calculator was correct. Well, I just wasted an entire batch of oils because there is no scent! and I have a bottle that is totally useless. This was one of the first fragrance oils I ever used in cold process soap years ago, and loved it so I thought I'd make another batch. I have 1 bar over 2 years old, and it smells great but my new batch is a total failure......I would recommend another fragrance

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.

Gorgeous Scent!
This is an absolutely gorgeous scent that sticks and stays true even after a 6 week cure. Both times I used it I did have some serious ricing and acceleration and ended up having to plop it into the mold, but I did soap around 110. I don't know that I will CP with this again, but would absolutely use again in MP or HP.

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!

A Bit Thin For My Taste
Was so hoping that this would smell like some of the richer, more sophisticated versions of this fragrance, and closer to the yankee candle. It smells thin, like it has a more of citronella base note. A little disappointed, but will try mixing it with the Pineapple Cilantro and see what happens.

Hi Vanessa! I'm so sorry that this fragrance smelled thin to you.  We love our Lemon Verbena Yankee Type version of the sophisticated classic with its complex layering of lemon verbena with floral, anchored by amber and white musk. You might also try blending it with Champagne Fragrance Oil, Crisp Cotton Fragrance Oil, or Orange Blossom (Candle & Soap) Fragrance
