Ocean Rain: This isn't your average rain type of scent with floral notes; rather, this Rain is a clean, crisp scent, with notes reminiscent of Ocean type scents but not entirely and Ocean either! It sticks great in cold process, doesn't discolor in the slightest but does accelerate trace, so work quickly with this fragrance. Is a great unisex scent that says "I'm Refined! I'm Bracing! I'm Cool!"

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Hilary! I'm so glad your customers love our Ocean Rain Fragrance Oil. Though, I'm sorry you don't like working with this scent in cold process soap. It can definitely accelerate in CP. 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.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Jessica! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the unique, clean smell of our Ocean Rain Fragrance Oil! If you're looking for other rain scents you may like Kentish Rain Fragrance Oil, Rain Cybilla Fragrance Oil, or Salty Mariner Fragrance Oil.
