Mango Peach Salsa: This fragrance is complex, sweet and delicious. It's a combination of tart mango and sweet peach with a hint of fresh herbs and spicy jalapeno. The tart notes shine in melt and pour while the sweet and spicy notes stand out in cold process. While the scent holds up perfectly in cold process it tends to moves quickly. Recommended for experienced soapers (and totally worth the results). NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (194ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi 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. (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 starts to rice, you can stick blend your soap until it's smooth. Read more in the Soap Behaving Badly post. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!
