Love this fragrance

This is by far one of my favorite scents. I have made CP soap ( although it was a little lore oily than normal- same recipe I always use) Body butter In This scent is a #1 seller, can't keep it on the shelves!! Sugar scrubs are also wonderful. I just made a MP goats milk soap with this, we'll see how that does- i think it will sell better than the CP.

Love this for whipped soap

Love the fragrance but it did want to accelerate in my cold process...but when I tried it in whipped soap it worked great! Use it for whipped soap marshmallows and scrubs!

Hi Tanya! I'm so glad you love our Mango Peach Salsa Fragrance Oil! Because of the spicy notes it can accelerate in cold process soap. 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!

Movin' kinda quick!

OMG I love this scent! but the first time I used it, it riced. Ok, fine... lets try this again. Another batch with it today and it accelerated. I smashed it into the mold so we'll see how it turns out. This scent is sure worth all the trouble it causes!

Hi Christine! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, it did accelerate. To help slow this down, take 1 oz.

I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!

Mango Peach Salsa

Did anyone else have this accelerate rather quickly? I love this smell, split it in 3 different colors, and then it went down hill from there. It also started Ricing on me also.Will try it again, but only use one color..Still in love with the fragrance :)
