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) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Smells gorgeous
I love this fragrance and am anxious to see how it sells. I've used it in two cp batches this week with no issues. I have recently found my troubles with florals go away if I soap at 80. I did with both batches of this soap and had zero acceleration. I brought to thin trace and stirred in the fragrance. Both times I would have had plenty of workable time to do a swirl, but I had different plans. It really does smell lovely!

Strong and Floral
I find the Orange Blossom very strong and floral, similar to real orange blossoms and boy do I love when the orange blossoms are blooming here in Florida. I bought this oil to go with a soy candle I was making with the intentions of mixing it with other scents. Both combinations I made turned out really nice. I find that if I don't put too much of this one in it really adds a delicate accent to my candle fragrances. I wouldn't use this on it's own personally, but mixed I love it.

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.

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!
