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.

Instant Acceleration
I LOVE this scent, it is EXACTLY like the real thing! However it was almost an INSTANT acceleration! Good thing I was doing an in the pot swirl, the batter was almost too stiff to pour into the mold! Great scent, not to thrilled on the acceleration.

Hi Jodie! I'm so glad you love the scent of our Orange Blossom (Candle & Soap) Fragrance! We do too! This fragrance does tend to accelerate in cold process soap due to the floral notes. 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. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

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.
