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) will ship FedEx only regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout. It cannot be shipped by the USPS.

So disappointed
I am very disappointed because I absolutely love the smell of this oil. Unfortunately, my batch seized on me big time and I'm not sure I can salvage any of it. I mixed in the fragrance oil at 113F degrees and it was an almost immediate seizing. I could have mixed it in too vigorously but I don't usually have this problem with other oils. I may try to order it again and mix it in at lower temperatures.

Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry to hear this fragrance misbehaved for you. We have experienced slight acceleration with this fragrance so using slow moving oils and cooler temperatures certainly helps! If your soap is not lye heavy, you can always make rebatch soap with it, that way you are not throwing out any soap! You may find this Soap Queen TV video on How To Make Rebatch Soap helpful!

Lemon Verbena (Yankee Type)
This is an amazingly true and fresh scent. I did CP soap, candles, and light hand creams with this formula. All were great and fast sellers. I started with 8 ounces and need to reorder soon. I love you Brambleberry for making so many wonderful and fun fragrances and soap supplies. Your tutorials are something I always look forward to. Im glad that your company has taken all the guesswork out of purchasing with confidence and knowing what to expect in the soapmaking process.

Very strong
This scent is less sweet and lemon-y than the Yankee candle scent and is more floral/herbal to me. I used .7 per pound of oil which was WAY too much. Next time I will try using less to see if I like it better. Would probably do well advertised as a kitchen soap and many of my friends liked it a lot. It did speed up trace, but did not discolor. Used in CP soap.

Hi Tania, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed this fragrance! For a medium strength scent, we usually recommend .7 ounces per pound. If you found .7 ounces to be too strong for you, I would recommend using .4 ounces per pound for a lighter scent. I hope this helps! In the future, you may find our fragrance calculator helpful to you!

Nice verbena
This is a great version of lemon verbena. It is pretty strong. I use it for making perfume.

Big hit
This lemon knocks it out of the park. It's strong, sticks, and doesn't discolor. I blend with lemongrass EO in a 4 - 1 ratio and it smells amazing. You do have to move fast, it accelerates at a pretty good clip but if you don't discount water and be aware and prepared it's very manageable..... Stock for me now.
