Description 

Orange Blossom - The fragrant Orange Blossom is the state flower of Florida. It is thought to have come over to the states from Spain back around the time of Columbus. Our blend starts fairly sharp and heavy on the bergamot, and calms to a lovely orange blossom heart with citrus notes and just the right amount of sweetness. It is a sparkling, cheerful, summery blend. Sticks well in cold process soap and discolors to a light tan and does accelerate trace due to the floral notes, so be prepared to work fast. 

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (190ºF) will ship FedEx only regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout. It cannot be shipped by the USPS.

Definately accelerated trace
I had planned a simple 1 color and natural swirl. Seeing from the previous review that it accelerated a little, I did not bring the soap to trace when I mixed the fragrance in. Then I poured a little out to mix with the color. By the time I turned around the soap batter was as thick as cooked oatmeal. When I tried to stir it I thought it was ricing. So I just did a little in the pot swirl and poured it into the molds. Surprise, it turned out fine when I unmolded it. However, I find the scent, less than inspiring. So, I give it a 3 1/2 star rating. (I know you are supposed to mix the scent last - this is a good one to follow that rule on.) The scent reminds me of honeysuckle. Addendum: the scent has definately improved. I quite like it now. My friends do as well. I give it 4 stars. Oddly enough, I did not get discoloration in CP soap..

I’m sorry to hear this fragrance did not behave well for you. We do our best to let our customers know how our fragrances behave and in our tests, this fragrance did accelerate trace due to the floral notes. If you did not love this scent, you may like our Orange Valencia Essential Oil or our Orange Grove Fragrance Oil better.

Fabulous!
I've been using the Orange Blossom to make my color block soap...Every single customer just goes crazy for this scent! I highly recommend this fragrance!

Eh... it's okay
Based on other reviews, I was aware that this FO would accelerate and discolor to a light tan. Based on that, I mixed the oils and lye before adding the FO. This left enough time to get it in the mold as a solid colored soap. I used carrot juice and some T.D. in an attempt to bring the tan to more of an orange. We'll see how that cures out. But, 24 hours after making the soap, the fragrance isn't anything special. This may be a better fragrance for other applications, but not one that I'll likely buy for CP again. I have 10X Orange Essential oil, but tried this FO hoping for more of the floral scent. Maybe next time I'll mix the 10X Orange with the Orange Blossom.

Hi Michelle, I'm sorry that you didn't love this scent. I think your idea of blending the 10X Orange with the Orange Blossom is a great one, that may result in the more floral scent you are looking for. Using the 10X Orange fragrance will also result in a brighter orange color!

Customer Favorite
I almost afraid to tell everyone how yummy this is, for fear of my soap not being so unique! No really, this is a customer favorite and I get A LOT of compliments on this fragrance. Coming from FLA, this is a perfect staple for me. While I had a few misshaps because my soap traced fast, I had to make sure my oils and lye water were super cool and I couldn't add any raw honey because it just heated too fast. With some practice, my soap turned out beautiful on several occasions. This scent sticks forever in CP soap.

Wonderful fragrance!
Bought 2 oz of this awhile back and made soap. It did accelerate a little bit but just don't do a water discount like I did - I was still able to work with it and do a swirl but just had to hurry it up. Smells awesome in the soap. Haven't done a candle yet but plan to in the next few days. Bought another 4 ounces. Planning to use it for soaps, body butter, candles, air freshener, you name it :)
