Moroccan Fig - This great smelling fig fragrance smells like a freshly picked fig. The scent is exotic and mysterious while maintaining just the right mix of ripeness and zest.
It does accelerate trace in cold process soap but we think it's worth the extra trouble!
Usage notes from CK in Oregon:I have CP'ed Moroccan Fig twice now (at 1%), and it accelerates trace, but not unworkable. The first batch nearly seized, until I figured out how to soap with it. It also morphs Cellini blue mica to a HOT pink.
The second batch, I added it at a light trace, mixed it quickly by HAND then poured it quickly. I did a swirl, but removed a portion prior to adding FO that I colored with a burgundy oxide. Turned out gorgeous. We think it's worth the extra engineering though, as it smells heavenly in the finished CP soap. And the fragrance doesn't fade.
Basic recipe used in both batches: 7.5 % Castor, 37.50% Coconut & Olive & 17.5% Palm at 5% superfat
NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (182ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Hi Melanie! I'm happy that you enjoyed this scent! Since this fragrance is known to accelerate, I recommend using a recipe that consists mostly of liquid oils, as well as soaping colder. I would also keep this mind when planning your design, and choose something on the simple side :)
